Fix iBook DRM issues on iOS 5.0.1 with Redsn0w 0.9.10b5 [DOWNLOAD]

Update #5: redsn0w version b5 incorporates yet another fix for iBooks, this time involving DRM.  @planetbeing wrote a utility called "crazeles" that overcomes jailbreak detection by iBooks that would cause about 10% of images to show incorrectly.  This fix is similar to the "hunnypot" fix that @comex wrote for the 4.x jailbreak.  As usual, you can choose to install the fix either by re-running redsn0w over your existing jailbreak (de-select Cydia if you do that), or by installing the corona package from Cydia (it's the same set of files no matter which way you choose).

TIP: If auto-detection fails and redsn0w tells you no identifying data was found, you can always pre-select the appropriate 5.0.1 IPSW using "Extras->Select IPSW".

Here are the redsn0w download links:

CLI Jailbreak for iPhone 4S and iPad 2

As promised, the infamous Dev Team has just released its CLI jailbreak which is compatible with both the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2. It's still for Mac users only, but it does provide an alternative to the Absinthe .

We must warn you though that this isn't your typical jailbreak software. CLI stands for Command Line Interface, meaning using it isn't as easy as clicking the "jailbreak" button. It's definitely not for the feint of heart…

Here's how the Dev Team describes its CLI app:

"The OS X version of the CLI mentioned in the post can be downloaded here. It's primarily to help us debug specific issues, but tinkerers might like to play around with some of its advanced options!"

So essentially, the majority of users should stay with Absinthe or wait for Dev-team to release a new version of Redsn0w.

The OS X version of the iPhone Dev Command Line Tool can be downloaded from the link posted at the end, with the corresponding readme information also being available; which outlines the options available to debuggers and tinkerers. If you intend on using the iPhone Dev CLI then make sure that you are familiar with the risks involved and follow all advice from the authors.

If you have viewed the included documentation, you will be able to see a number of options available, and the increasing complexities of the more advanced options, users would benefit from having some previous command line experience. The CLI tool is generally intended to be used for debugging purposes and could cause problems if used without any proper knowledge. The documentation provided, although only one page, provides a number of example usages for the CLI.

Download the iPhone Dev Team CLI Tool for Mac.

 If you're really interested in trying CLI, stay tuned for our step-by-step guide on how to use it.

Download Absinthe V0.1.2-2 [Fix Overload Issues]

A few moments ago, pod2g wrote a brief blog post announcing the update:

"Chronic Dev Team has a released a new build that'll point the web clip to instead of the absinthe dedicated page. This will handle better the workload."

Unfortunately, Windows users are still out of luck. This Absinthe update is also Mac OS X only.

Untethered Jailbreak iPhone 4S & iPad 2 on iOS 5.0 to 5.0.1 with Absinthe [DOWNLOAD LINK]

The iPhone 4S and iPad 2 owners waited patiently, then they waited some more, and finally after a little more waiting welcomed the Absinthe jailbreak software to the community. Produced by the famous Chronic Development Team, and supported by the conjoined efforts of Pod2g and the iPhone Dev Team, Absinthe offers users the ability to jailbreak iOS 5 and 5.0.1 into an untethered state.

The supported devices and firmware for Absinthe are:

  • iPhone 4S running iOS 5.0, 5.0.1 (9A405 and 9A406)
  • iPad 2 Wifi/GSM/CDMA running iOS 5.0.1
The greenpois0n blog is under heavy load... because it's indeed out !

Here is the download link of Chronic Dev Team's Absinthe :

Happy Cydia !


  • Camera roll will be empty if the jailbreak is incomplete. Rerun the app once to fix, and then another time to complete jb.
  • If the Absinthe webclip shows "Error establishing a database connection", please go to Settings, turn on VPN and wait instead.
  • The VPN connection will give an error. This is normal. A reboot should happen a few moments after the error.
  • Just reboot and redo the jailbreak if you have problems.
  • When jailbreaking: Do not have a passcode set. Do not have your own VPN setup (Absinthe needs to setup its own).
  • If Absinthe crashes, reboot your DEVICE and try again.
  • Toggle VPN only AFTER Absinthe says it's done, or it will not work. VPN SHOULD error and then reboot soon. If it does not, rerun Absinthe!
  • It appears that some users are having a problem when launching the Absinthe app installed on their device, which returns an "error establishing a database connection".

    We have a fix for that…

    iOS hacker PlanetBeing who helped develop the jailbreak tweeted a simple fix for the "error establishing a database connection". Apparently, all you need to do is go to Settings > Network > VPN > ON.

    The VPN connection will most likely give an error and your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 should reboot shortly after. Once it's rebooted, try launching the Absinthe webclip again.

Corona A5 jailbreak nearly ready to pop!

Ever since the December release of @pod2g's "corona" untether for iOS 5.x on A4 and earlier devices, all eyes have been on the attempts to extend it to the A5 devices: the iPhone4S and iPad2.  Due to the combined efforts of @pod2g and members of the iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team, we're nearly ready for a general release!  All technical hurdles dealing with the underlying technique have been overcome, and it's now all about making the jailbreak as bug free as possible.

On his blog, @pod2g playfully nicknamed the combined effort a "dream team".  It's an ironic name, because the past few weeks have left everyone involved with very little sleep and the opportunity to dream :) But we're now near the final stages of testing the public version of the jailbreak.  Please allow time to clean up any remaining bugs in the jailbreak clients.

Jailbreak programs:

To be as flexible as possible, the A5 version of the corona jailbreak will take multiple forms:

  • Chronic Dev have incorporated the overall flow into a GUI that runs on your Mac or PC.  The goal is for the GUI to be enough for most cases.
  • iPhone Dev have also incorporated the exact same flow into an alternative command-line interface (CLI). This will allow us to help users through individual steps of the jailbreak manually, to both help the user and help improve the overall flow.  Although the CLI will also allow the user to perform the entire jailbreak from beginning to end, we anticipate it will be more useful in debugging the occasional errors.  The CLI currently has over 20 individual options (in addition to the single "jailbreak" option) that should be useful during debug after the GUI release.
  • Once all the bugs in the flow are worked out, we'll also incorporate it into the redsn0w GUI (but still leave the CLI freely available too).  In order to maximize the chances of the jailbreak working for everyone, the redsn0w GUI will use native Apple iTunes libraries — this technique is slightly different than how the Chronic Dev GUI handles communications, and should provide nice combined coverage for all the odd computer configurations out there.

Paypal Contributions:

Because there were so many different people and teams involved in the A5 corona release, we all felt the most equitable approach to any Paypal contributions should involve a single shared account.  If you do feel the desire to contribute to the "dream team" Paypal account, it will be distributed to the members according to internally agreed-upon proportions :)  (Please refer to this blog post for that specific link, to avoid frauds!)  The same link will be on both the Chronic Dev and iPhone Dev versions of the GUI.  This method seemed like the fairest to everyone involved!


The supported firmware versions will be:

  • iPhone4S: 5.0 (9A334), 5.0.1 (9A405) and the "other" 5.0.1 (9A406)
  • iPad2: 5.0.1 (9A405)

iPhone4S owners looking to maximize their chances of achieving an eventual software-based carrier unlock should be staying at 5.0.  Everyone else should be at 5.0.1.  If you're an iPhone4S owner who already updated to 5.0.1, it's too late to go back down to 5.0, but if you're on 9A406 it is possible to downgrade the BB by going to the 9A405 version of 5.0.1 while the window is still open.


The overall flow used by the GUI and CLI to inject the A5 corona jailbreak has never been done before, and there may be unforeseen problems once it's released to the public.  It's very important for you to sync your data, photos, and music before attempting any version of this jailbreak.  We'll be watching the comments section below for signs of any widespread problems, but please be aware that you jailbreak at your own risk! 


As mentioned at the start of this post: when testing has shown most of the bugs have been fixed!

redsn0w 0.9.10b4 fix for iBooks (DOWNLOAD)

Update #4: The b4 version of redsn0w incorporates the 5.0.1 fix for iBooks, and also for sporadic problems with launchctl.  Thanks to @xvolks for merging the iBooks (sandbox) fix from @comex's github into the overall corona untether from @pod2g!  As usual, you can choose to install the fix either by re-running redsn0w over your existing jailbreak (de-select Cydia if you do that), or by installing the corona package from Cydia (it's the same set of files no matter which way you choose).
TIP: If auto-detection fails and redsn0w tells you no identifying data was found, you can always pre-select theappropriate 5.0.1 IPSW using "Extras->Select IPSW".

Here are the redsn0w download links:

"SANBOX BROKEN" , A5 Jailbreak coming Soon.

Sandox broken
Here are some news about the current work on the A5 research.

@planetbeing escaped from the sandbox with the help of @saurik. Thanks to their awesome work, there should be nothing left blocking for the A5 jailbreak.

Now it should be a matter of days. Still no precise ETA of course.

We all want this to be finished ASAP, we're getting tired!

react0r is coming to unlock iPhone 4 BB 4.11.08

This seems to be the most promising news for those who are stuck on baseband 4.11.08. Read on to learn more.

About two months ago an unknown hacker called hamzah_akram explored the possibility of erasing iPhone 4 baseband information. He was able to erase it but wasn't sure how to proceed from there.

However, after countless hours he made a breakthrough and has successfully unlocked baseband 4.11.08. Based on his blog and his tweets, it's very likely that he modified the iOS 5 IPSW file and SIM interposer i.e. Gevey Turbo SIM to make the unlock work.

On his Twitter today:

"Dear guys! the up coming nice thing for all of you is called #react0r ! #4.11.08 …. No donation required! this will end the #4.11.08 age!."

So far there are no further details on how this news and he intends to make this unlock method available free of charge to the masses.

True or false? Only time will tell.

i0n1c promise to Come with iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak

Stefan Esser, better known as i0n1c in the jailbreak community, may surprise us again, as he did few months ago with the release of iOS 4.3.1 untethered jailbreak exploit. Stefan "i0n1c" Esser now has an untethered solution for iOS 5.1. The news of iOS 5.1 untethered jailbreak has been confirmed by developer @Veeence from a tweet and @pod2g.

Good to know @i0n1c has exploits in his pipeline for a possible iOS 5.1 untether.

Following the release of untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1 by pod2g, Stefan immediately tweeted to confirm that all his exploit and vulnerabilities are still alive, which means he might use them to untether 5.1 jailbreak.

Okay I am perfectly fine with the release of the iOS 5.0.1 untether :P All my bugs survived :P

@i0n1c good to know, so we're not blocked with 5.1 ?

According to pod2g, i0n1c untethered userland exploit is still live in LC_SEGMENT64. The latest blog post by pod2g suggests that i0n1c has discovered a new way to authenticate the binary using loader and we might see it in action in the 5.1 jailbreak.

@i0n1c yeah that one is really obscure and fun :p

.@pod2g I hope it has nothing todo with LC_SEGMENT64 :P

i0n1c has not divulged more on 5.1 untethered exploit, but I can only expect that this release will be made public when the time is appropriate, such as new iOS 5.1 update (if they don't break the exploit, of course).
