Accidentally updated to iOS 6.1.3 and found out your iPhone 3GS is locked or stuck in recovery mode? Try this proven working solution.

This will be a lengthy process so if you have an AT&T iPhone 3GS, you can save all the troubles and unlock it permanently using this. If you have a non-AT&T iPhone, check our Store for a possible factory unlocking solution.

First of all, please be aware that the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 is not yet available and baseband 5.16.08 can’t be unlocked.

However, it’s still possible to unlock your iPhone by updating the baseband to 6.15.00 and then downgrading to 5.13.04.

  • Baseband version 5.13.04 allows you to unlock your iPhone 3GS with ultrasn0w.
  • Baseband 6.15.00 is an iPad baseband which can break your GPS. Read the risks here.
  • In order to downgrade to 5.13.04, you must update it to 6.15.00 first. Unfortunately, there’s no direct way of downgrading it to 5.13.04.
  • If you’re stuck in recovery mode, most likely you already have baseband 6.15.00 installed and iTunes won’t complete the restore.

Confusing? That’s OK. Read on…

WARNING: If you have the new iPhone 3GS 8GB, read this first. Othewise, by installing the iPad baseband, you will brick the chip and there’s no software fix available! You should consider making it factory unlocked now.

Did you read and understand all the risks? OK, let’s proceed.

Apple is still signing iOS 4.1 which you need to downgrade your iPhone 3GS to. The reason why you need to downgrade to iOS 4.1 first is so that you can update your baseband to 6.15.00, which allows you to downgrade it to 5.13.04.

[Final warning: Proceed at your own risks!]

Part 1: Downgrade to iOS 4.1

1. Backup your contacts, photos, apps etc. (probably not possible at this stage) Remove your SIM card.

2. Download iOS 4.1 firmware for iPhone 3GS or from here.

3. Download redsn0w 0.9.8rc18 for Windows or Mac.

4. Download latest version of TinyUmbrella from here.

5. Remove iTunes and install iTunes 10.4.1 for Windows (32-bit) or Mac.

6. Put your iPhone into DFU mode. See YouTube video here.

7. Launch iTunes, connect your iPhone, hold down the SHIFT for Windows or Option for Mac while you click the RESTORE button in iTunes and select the iOS 4.1 firmware file you have just downloaded. If you get an iTunes error 3194, read here on how to fix it.

8. The restore will end with error 1015 and recovery loop on the iPhone, this can be resolved using the “Exit Recovery” button in TinyUmbrella.

Part 2: Installing iPad baseband 6.15.00

9. Start redsn0w 0.9.6rc18.

10. Browse for the iOS 4.1 firmware you just downloaded.

11. Select ‘Install Cydia’ and ‘Install iPad Baseband’. Warning: installing iPad baseband will break your GPS, if you have the new 3GS made after week 28 of 2011, it does not support the iPad baseband. We will downgrade to 5.13.04 later for the GPS fix. Once again, if you have an AT&T iPhone 3GS, unlock it using this.

12. Follow on screen instructions to put your device into DFU mode to begin the jailbreak.

13. When the process is done, you will find that your iPhone is now jailbroken on iOS 4.1 with iPad baseband 6.15.00. To make sure you can always go back to iOS 4.1, launch Cydia and select ‘Make my life easier.’

Part 3: Downgrading to baseband 5.13.04 (GPS Fix)

14. Now download redsn0w 0.9.14b2 that can downgrade iPad baseband to 5.13.04 for Windows or Mac.

15. Launch redsn0w. Go to Extras > Select IPSW button in redsn0w to point to the original firmware you downloaded in Step 2.

16. Do a controlled shutdown of your iPhone (“slide to power off”).

17. Return to the first screen and click ‘Jailbreak’. Check the ‘Downgrade from iPad baseband’ checkbox, uncheck Cydia and click Next.

18. Redsn0w will start doing the downgrade and you will see ‘Flashing Baseband’ screen on your iPhone with the Pawnapple icon. DO NOT INTERRUPT your iPhone while baseband flashing is in progress.

19. When done, your iPhone will reboot itself and you will now have iOS 4.1 with baseband 5.13.04 that can be unlocked with ultrasn0w.

20. You may want to update to iOS 5.1.1 which has untethered jailbreak and can also be unlocked with ultrasn0w 1.2.8. Use this tutorial here (it’s for baseband 6.15.00 but will work for any baseband). You can install iOS 5.1.1 only if you have the SHSH saved on Cydia or locally.

If you’re happy with iOS 4.1 and would like to unlock it, read on…

Part 4: Unlock with ultrasn0w

21. Launch Cydia from Springboard (home menu).

22. Search for ultrasn0w on Packages in Cydia. If you cannot find it, add new sources by typing ultrasn0w repo:

repo666.ultrasn0w.com (with zero, not o).

23. Install Ultrasnow 1.2.8.

24. Reboot your iPhone.

25. Turn off 3G and insert your SIM card. It should pick up your mobile signal.

Part 5: Update to iOS 6.1.3 by Preserving your Baseband and then Unlock with Ultrasn0w.

Since the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1.3 is not yet available, we suggest that you wait for it. We will update this post as soon as it becomes available and the right tool to preserve your baseband has been released. In the meantime, you can stay on your current iOS version. You can use sn0wbreeze to build custom iOS 6.1.3 which will give you tethered jailbreak.

Not too difficult right? If you follow the exact instructions, 99% of the time this will work.

Good luck and leave your comments or questions below. If I missed anything, please let me know.

4 Ways to Fix Your Verizon or Sprint iPhone with Bad or Blacklisted ESN/MEID http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/4-ways-to-fix-your-verizon-or-sprint-iphone-with-bad-or-blacklisted-esnmeid/ http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/4-ways-to-fix-your-verizon-or-sprint-iphone-with-bad-or-blacklisted-esnmeid/#comments Tue, 09 Apr 2013 06:04:48 +0000 Richard Ker http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/?p=1642 #leftcontainerBox { float:left; position: fixed; top: 60%; left: 70px; } #leftcontainerBox .buttons { float:left; clear:both; margin:4px 4px 4px 4px; padding-bottom:2px; } #bottomcontainerBox { height: 30px; width:50%; padding-top:1px; } #bottomcontainerBox .buttons { float:left; height: 30px; margin:4px 4px 4px 4px; }

So you just got yourself a great deal on eBay or Craigslist for an iPhone and then later realized that the iPhone has a bad ESN (MEID). What’s the h*ck is this, anyway?

An iPhone with bad ESN isn’t a hardware problem with the phone, but rather it’s a problem with how the phone connects or interacts with its original cellular carrier.

ESN is an acronym for Electronic Serial Number which is the unique identification number that identifies CDMA phones to the cellular network – Sprint or Verizon.

If an iPhone is reported lost or stolen or the owner is terminated for non-payment and has a remaining balance, the original carrier will mark it as a device with bad ESN as bad.Your iPhone then cannot be activated until it gets fixed.

What are the ways to fix this issue?

1. Call Verizon or Sprint to find out why the ESN is not working. A customer service representative can tell you whether it has a bad ESN because of a remaining balance on an account, or whether the iPhone bearing that number was reported lost or stolen.

2. If you bought it from someone, talk with the person you purchased the iPhone from. Perhaps they are not aware the ESN is bad, or that they had a remaining balance on the account. The original account holder will need to contact the carrier and clear up any remaining balance before the new owner can activate it.

3. Try to activate the iPhone on another network. Usually, the ESN is only bad for the carrier the iPhone was originally activated on. There are other CDMA carriers that will accept iPhones from other networks. If you go this route, you will need to have the iPhone flashed. Flashing deletes the original carrier’s settings and substitutes the settings for the new carrier. Carriers that accept flashed iPhones usually have stores that can flash the iPhones for you for a fee.

4. If all fails, then you should use this paid service to remote fix the problem. It takes about 5-7 business days to fix the problem. Once your bad ESN is fixed, you will get a notification and you will need to activate the iPhone within 5 days. It may cost a little bit but it will guarantee you that you can use your iPhone again. Click here to remote fix your ESN.

If you happen to bump into this post before getting an iPhone, consider yourself lucky because never ever buy a used iPhone with bad ESN.

Planning to buy an iPhone but need to check if it’s blacklisted? Or did you already buy an iPhone but need to know if it’s blacklisted?

What is a blacklisted iPhone anyway? Well, not too long ago, when a phone is stolen, there’s really nothing you can do about it. The thief will just resell the phone to someone else, and the new owner can use it simply by replacing the SIM card.

However, that has changed. AT&T and many other US carriers have recently implemented a blacklist database. When an iPhone is reported missing or stolen, carrier will mark it on their database based on your iPhone’s IMEI. An IMEI is your iPhone’s unique serial number which you can find under Settings, General, About. It is also known as ESN or MEID on Verizon or Sprint iPhone.

When this happens, the iPhone can no longer be used because it will not connect to AT&T. Since the blacklist database is shared with other carriers, that iPhone, even if it’s officially unlocked, will not work on T-Mobile or other carriers either. Do note that a blacklisted IMEI is also called Bad or Barred ESN/MEID/IMEI.

The caveat to this is that carrier blacklist database is not yet shared with other worldwide carriers, so as example, if your iPhone is blacklisted in USA, it can still be used in Australia.

You can find out if an iPhone is blacklisted simply by calling the original carrier. Another alternative is to use our IMEI blacklist checker here. Protect yourself from fraud.

How to Install PPSSPP iPhone and iPad Sony PSP Emulator http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/how-to-install-ppsspp-iphone-and-ipad-sony-psp-emulator/ http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/how-to-install-ppsspp-iphone-and-ipad-sony-psp-emulator/#comments Wed, 27 Mar 2013 05:53:20 +0000 Richard Ker http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/?p=1616 #leftcontainerBox { float:left; position: fixed; top: 60%; left: 70px; } #leftcontainerBox .buttons { float:left; clear:both; margin:4px 4px 4px 4px; padding-bottom:2px; } #bottomcontainerBox { height: 30px; width:50%; padding-top:1px; } #bottomcontainerBox .buttons { float:left; height: 30px; margin:4px 4px 4px 4px; }

Do you wish to extend the capability of your iPhone or iPad? Try this Sony PSP Emulator called PPSSPP.

This multi-platform PPSSPP Emulator allows you to run PSP games or in other worlds to be emulated on your Apple iPhone or iPad.

Ready? Now let’s start on how to install PPSSPP Emulator. First thing first, your iPhone or iPad must be jailbroken. There are already tons of tutorials out there so I guess I won’t need to explain it here.

1. On your device, launch Cydia > Manage > Sources and then Edit. Tap Add and enter the following repo:

cydia.myrepospace.com/theavenger

2. Wait for the repository to refresh and load the hosted packages. Now search for PPSSPP and select Install.

3. Once the install is done, exit Cydia and you will find PPSSPP on your Home screen.

4. Tap on the PPSSPP icon to launch the app.

In order for you to play games on it you need to load the .ISO or .CSO file or the “virtual disc” of the game.

How to Load .ISO or .CSO PPSSPP File into your Device

You must already have the .ISO file ready. There’s a whole separate tutorial on that or Google or download for it.

1. The default directory for PPSSPP on your device is under /var/mobile/Documents. You will need to use this directory to copy the .ISO or .CSO files into.

2. Thetypical file size of an .ISO file  is around 450MB so use iExplorer or similar file explorer computer application to copy them into your device.

3. Once you’ve loaded the file, simply launch PPSSPP and click Load and point it to the .ISO file from that directory.

Let the game begins… That’s all to it!

Accidentally updated to iOS 6.1 and found out your iPhone 3GS is locked or stuck in recovery mode? This is a proven working solution. Be warned though, it may take you some time if you’re new to jailbreaking.

This will be a lengthy process so if you have an AT&T iPhone 3GS, you can save all the troubles and unlock it permanently using this. If you have a non-AT&T iPhone, check our Store for a possible factory unlocking solution.

First of all, please be aware that the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1 is expected to be released very soon (maybe this Sunday, Feb 3) and baseband 5.16.08 can’t be unlocked.

However, it’s still possible to unlock your iPhone by updating the baseband to 6.15.00 and then downgrading to 5.13.04.

  • Baseband version 5.13.04 allows you to unlock your iPhone 3GS with ultrasn0w.

Once again, if you have an AT&T iPhone 3GS, unlock it using this.

12. Follow on screen instructions to put your device into DFU mode to begin the jailbreak.

13. When the process is done, you will find that your iPhone is now jailbroken on iOS 4.1 with iPad baseband 6.15.00. To make sure you can always go back to iOS 4.1, launch Cydia and select ‘Make my life easier.’

Part 3: Downgrading to baseband 5.13.04 (GPS Fix)

14. Now download redsn0w 0.9.14b2 that can downgrade iPad baseband to 5.13.04 for Windows or Mac.

15. Launch redsn0w. Go to Extras > Select IPSW button in redsn0w to point to the original firmware you downloaded in Step 2.

16. Do a controlled shutdown of your iPhone (“slide to power off”).

17. Return to the first screen and click ‘Jailbreak’. Check the ‘Downgrade from iPad baseband’ checkbox, uncheck Cydia and click Next.

18. Redsn0w will start doing the downgrade and you will see ‘Flashing Baseband’ screen on your iPhone with the Pawnapple icon. DO NOT INTERRUPT your iPhone while baseband flashing is in progress.

19. When done, your iPhone will reboot itself and you will now have iOS 4.1 with baseband 5.13.04 that can be unlocked with ultrasn0w.

20. You may want to update to iOS 5.1.1 which has untethered jailbreak and can also be unlocked with ultrasn0w 1.2.7. Use this tutorial here (it’s for baseband 6.15.00 but will work for any baseband). You can install iOS 5.1.1 only if you have the SHSH saved on Cydia or locally.

If you’re happy with iOS 4.1 and would like to unlock it, read on…

Part 4: Unlock with ultrasn0w

21. Launch Cydia from Springboard (home menu).

22. Search for ultrasn0w on Packages in Cydia. If you cannot find it, add new sources by typing ultrasn0w repo:

repo666.ultrasn0w.com (with zero, not o).

23. Install Ultrasnow 1.2.7.

24. Reboot your iPhone.

25. Turn off 3G and insert your SIM card. It should pick up your mobile signal.

Part 5: Update to iOS 6.1 by Preserving your Baseband and then Unlock with Ultrasn0w (Fixer).

Since the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.1 is scheduled for release soon, we suggest that you wait for it. We will update this post as soon as it becomes available and the right tool to preserve your baseband has been released. In the meantime, you can stay on your current iOS version.

Not too difficult right? If you follow the exact instructions, 99% of the time this will work.

Good luck and leave your comments or questions below. If I missed anything, please let me know.

Team Evad3rs has the Untethered Jailbreak for iPhone 5 and iPad Mini on iOS 6 http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/team-evad3rs-has-the-untethered-jailbreak-for-iphone-5-and-ipad-mini-on-ios-6/ http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/team-evad3rs-has-the-untethered-jailbreak-for-iphone-5-and-ipad-mini-on-ios-6/#comments Fri, 25 Jan 2013 08:14:38 +0000 Richard Ker http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/?p=1592 #leftcontainerBox { float:left; position: fixed; top: 60%; left: 70px; } #leftcontainerBox .buttons { float:left; clear:both; margin:4px 4px 4px 4px; padding-bottom:2px; } #bottomcontainerBox { height: 30px; width:50%; padding-top:1px; } #bottomcontainerBox .buttons { float:left; height: 30px; margin:4px 4px 4px 4px; }

Still waiting for the untethered jailbreak for iPhone 5 or iPad mini? Rejoice, it’s now in the horizon.

Announcing ‘Evad3rs’ (pronounced as “Evaders”) who will be the team to release the untethered jailbreak for iOS 6. This team is made up of seasoned hackers who have always been active in the jailbreak community.

The team members are @pimskeks, @planetbeing, @pod2g and iPhone dev team leader @musclenerd.

Pod2g tweeted:

We (+ @MuscleNerd @planetbeing @pimskeks) are the@evad3rs. We don’t take any donations ATM, please don’t be fooled at donating to others.

He basically warns everyone not to be fooled by fake jailbreakers who may fool people into paying for the jailbreak.

A lot of work has been done of late, and most likely there have been breakthroughs to make the jailbreak on iOS 6.x untethered.

It’s very likely that the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak will only be released after iOS 6.1 is public.

Here’s a Free IMEI Checker to Check if You Have an AT&T iPhone http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/heres-a-free-imei-checker-to-check-you-have-att-iphone/ http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/heres-a-free-imei-checker-to-check-you-have-att-iphone/#comments Thu, 24 Jan 2013 03:49:46 +0000 Richard Ker http://www.iphonejailbreak.me/?p=1564 #leftcontainerBox { float:left; position: fixed; top: 60%; left: 70px; } #leftcontainerBox .buttons { float:left; clear:both; margin:4px 4px 4px 4px; padding-bottom:2px; } #bottomcontainerBox { height: 30px; width:50%; padding-top:1px; } #bottomcontainerBox .buttons { float:left; height: 30px; margin:4px 4px 4px 4px; }

Not sure if you have an AT&T iPhone? Use this free tool! FYI, AT&T iPhone can now be officially and permanently unlocked.

Enter your 15-digit IMEI below (Go to Settings, General, About), if it turns Green, it’s an AT&T iPhone so get it permanently unlocked by placing your order here, if it turns Red it is either:

  • locked to other network OR
  • the server is busy (wait for 60 seconds and try again)

NOTE: Temporarily Offline. Use this instead.

 

Please wait about 45-60 seconds in between queries to get the most accurate result, avoid overloading the server as that might not give you any result at all.

Got an AT&T iPhone? Great, unlock it here! No more jailbreaking or cracking your head to unlock it.
