The final version of Blacksn0w RC2 is now available on Cydia. This version brings fix for WiFi loss, and boot loops issue which was hampering users in the last ‘test’ release. For those of you who don't know, blacksn0w RC2 is basically a repackaged version of the original unlock released by geohot, and the fix which was recently released by MSFT Guy for 05.11.07 baseband on iPhone OS 3.1.3.
A fix has been released to unlock the latest iPhone 3.1.3 firmware on 05.11.07 baseband using Blacksn0w. Most of you who have tried to unlock iPhone 3.1.3 with 05.11.07 baseband using blacksn0w might have faced this problem where the said tool is unable to unlock iPhone 3G and 3GS. This is because blacksn0w is locating a function to patch by searching the binary for a reference to string "SIM is not supported". In iPhone OS 3.1.3, Apple has replaced the same function in a way that it now uses the string "Verified". Since the location to patch is determined by instruction search&replace, the said patch still works in iPhone 3.1.3 after changing the string and its length in Blacksn0w binary.
Those of you who have jailbroken your iPhone with blackra1n and then later unlocked it with blacksn0w might have faced issues with Youtube not working, WiFi not connecting to any hotspot and other issues related to GPS. Some of you got it fixed by following our guide posted here which used Push Fix app from Cydia. This app, which was available on iPhoneil repo was removed shortly after we posted about it. The good news is that the app has now been repackaged and rebranded as “Push Fix & youtube” and is now available for download via Cydia. “Push Fix & youtube” is guaranteed to fix all the issues that you may be having with the Youtube app not working after blackra1n jailbreak.
