all four one!

From the Dev-Team Blog:

Around an hour ago the new version of the iPhone Operating System (now called ‘iOS’) was released.

iOS 4 is a huge release for Apple with many many changes and those changes offer slick additional features.

These new features are being offered by Apple as a free upgrade to qualifying devices.

We are working hard on a release to our tools that will jailbreak your device (or give you iOS 4 via the jailbreak train) and provide you with a carrier unlock.

Until these tools are released you should hold off on updating your device until we have fully tested our tools with all the relevant devices.

If you rely on hacktivation or a carrier unlock (ultrasn0w) then you should not upgrade until we have fully tested and released our tools.

Don’t be tempted with unofficial PwnageTool/redsn0w bundles or releases, just check here or our team twitter for real time release information.

Remember, we risk our devices so you don’t have to (but this time anyone who has made a mistake upgrading their baseband firmware should be OK real soon ;) Now! :)

Update #1: redsn0w beta has been updated to hacktivate iOS 4.0 for iPhone3G (in addition to jailbreaking the iPhone3G and iPod Touch 2G). The download links for redsn0w 0.9.5b5-3 are:

Mac OSX (x86)

For now, the redsn0w beta release supports only the iPhone3G and iPod Touch 2G at today’s 4.0. It’s still a beta, so you’ll need to let Cydia reorganize, reload, and update after using redsn0w.

Update #2: There’s a new redsn0w beta (links were changed above) that should fix any iBooks problems people were seeing. Just run this new version 0.9.5b5-4 and deselect Cydia (you don’t want to reinstall Cydia over itself).

  1. Hi,

    I've just jailbroken my 3G IOS 4 using redsn0w 0.9.5b5-4, and installed ultrasn0w. Everything went well but when I insert the SIM card I get a message asking to connect the iPhone to iTune to activate.

    I see the carrier logo so I think the unlock went well but the hacktivation didn't.

    How can I fix this? What went wrong?

  2. Just tested to call my number and the phone rings, but I still get the message asking to connect to iTunes and activate.

    Please help.

    Thanks in advance.

  3. Sounds as if the firmware did not update properly. I'd try a jailbreak again. If this does not correct the issue, I'd do a restore via iTunes and jailbreak again.
