I just found out about this fix from Redmond Pie’s Facebook fanpage and thought I should share it with you all. If you cant wait for JailbreakMe update, here is a quick possible fix for FaceTime and MMS issue on iPhone 4 after jailbreak using JailbreakMe 2.0 (Star). Simply follow the step by step guide below to fix the issue.
Most of you might have already know by now that an all-iOS device jailbreak called JailbreakMe 2.0 (Star) has been released. This new tool utilizes userland jailbreak vulnerability which enables it to jailbreak any iOS device on the latest firmware right from the Safari browser. More details on the jailbreak can be found here, and here.
JailbreakMe 2.0 Star is the name! - The userland jailbreak for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, 3G on iOS 4 / 4.0.1, iPod touch on iOS 4, and iPad on iOS 3.2.1 is out !!. It is a browser based jailbreak, all you have to do is to browse to http://jailbreakme.com from your iOS device to jailbreak it. Servers are probably thrashed right now. Keep trying until you successfully load the page. We will be back with quick how-to guides soon. Stay tuned for that !!
This will erupt lots of cries and disappointment but this was important to post as I know many of you have been really looking forward to it. Contrary to the popular believe that the new Spirit like all iOS device jailbreak will be released this weekend, the most vocal of all iPhone Dev-Team members MuscleNerd has confirmed that the new jailbreak wont be released today. This slight delay is because of some of the important iPhone 4 apps like FaceTime which are having issues after jailbreak. As MuscleNerd rightly said, there is no point in releasing a half-baked jailbreak tool which causes issues for the end-users.
Earlier today, the guy behind Spirit jailbreak tool came out with a series of tweets which hints towards the possibility of the “next version” of Spirit jailbreak tool coming very soon. We don’t know for sure if it will be called Spirit or Spirit v2, but what we know is that it is based on userland exploit, and that it will work with all iOS based devices including iPhone 4 on iOS 4.0.1 / 4.1 and iPad on iOS 3.2.1.
We all know why Geohot left the whole jailbreak scene. He has already deleted his Twitter account, and his blog is set to invite-only viewing only. However before deleting his Twitter account, Geohot said to follow his friend Mike Cohen for all the future updates on jailbreak. He also said that “perhaps one of these days i’ll do a more formal goodbye”. And now it looks like he is probably going to make a comeback (perhaps for the last time?) with a new tool to jailbreak all iOS devices once and for all. This is what his friend mikecohenn wrote today:
With iOS 4, Apple introduced iAd program so that developers can generate some revenues whilst keeping their apps free in the iTunes App Store. While the ads delivered by iAd are interactive and all, they are still of annoyance for most users. And so if you like your apps ads free, you can disable them all using a free app called iAdKiller for jailbroken iPhones and iPod touches.
In an unexpected update to his last blog post titled “Meh”, Geohot has announced that he, for the time being at least has kind of abandoned the whole iPhone jailbreak and unlock scene. The reasons according to him are as follows.
According to a recent tweet by a twitter user @MaxdMerc, a guy working at the Apple Store, Lakeside (UK) has reportedly confirmed that the next firmware update might be delayed slightly due to Apple working on a fix to patch the hole, recently used to jailbreak iOS 4. This however shouldn’t be surprising as almost all firmware updates in past have been used to block the exploits used to jailbreak the previous firmware versions.
Sn0wbreeze 1.7 for 4.0 has been released. Just like PwnageTool 4.0 / 4.01 for Macs, you can now create custom pwned / jailbroken ipsw files on Windows too which can now jailbreak all iOS devices (except iPhone 4) on iOS 4, including iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPod touch 2G (MC models) and iPod touch 3G. But there is a catch to it! You will need to have their SHSH blobs saved for iOS 3.1.2 in order to successfully jailbreak these devices on iOS 4. Also the jailbreak for iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPod touch 2G (MC models) and iPod touch 3G on iOS 4 will be tethered, which means whenever you turn off your phone, you will need to re-connect it to a computer to be able to turn it back on.
