Dump iPhone Baseband NOR Memory using NORDumper

The famous hackers from Dev Team had managed to extract the full content of the NOR memory (from the S-Gold2), which is the main key to achieving a true iPhone baseband unlock. Releasing this memory dump would be of course illegal and risky, as it contains personal information and copyrighted code.


Dev-Team About Jailbreak iPad 3 in the Near Future

The thrilling excitement over the latest Apple gadget is going to get much crazy as news of jailbreak iPad 3 is coming out directly from the iOS world. While the iPad feature is undoubtedly still much more limited in functionality, it’ll likely placate some of those who feel the necessity for just a little more customization than is offered on the iPhone itself.

In the same manner, most of the jailbreaking apps that allow you to perform or tweak phone-related functions will no longer be necessary since the iPad is not a phone. And Flash? Well, a lot more sites are adopting HTML5 technology and with this, videos can be made plug-in free, just in time for iPad web surfers to enjoy.

Here we have Dev-Team latest report about jailbreak iPad 3:

There are a few bits of good news already.

We can confirm that the method used to jailbreak the iPad2 4 months ago (before corona) still works even in 5.1. That means we’ll at least be able to get our foot in the door to get the required kernel dumps on the iPad3. That’s an important step, but by no means is it the end of the story.

Those of you following @i0n1c may have noticed he’s already tweeted pictures of his iPad2 jailbroken at 5.1. As far as we know, he’s using a method completely unrelated to the one mentioned above. That would be great news!

We’ve also seen bits and pieces of an entirely different jailbreak method being investigated by someone close to the Cydia repo scene.

That’s three different angles, and we’re not even including the continuous work @pod2g makes towards a new jailbreak! As always, keep in mind this is very preliminary progress, and it’s impossible to predict how or when these things turn out. The only thing you need to remember is the golden rule:

Don’t update your new iPad3 past whatever iOS it comes shipped with

iPhone 4S Network Disappearing

Apple’s site got a lots of complaints from people saying they lose their network connection or iPhone 4S network disappearing. This kind of complains were popular since iPhone 4S was released to the public. Still, there is rush of complains during last week. As you probably know Apple released iOS 5.1 last week along with the new iPad on its Apple event on March 7. Looks like there’s some kind of connection between iPhone 4S network disappearing and iOS 5.1 release.

That’s a typical post regarding iPhone 4S network disappearing:

iPhone 4S Network Disappearing 1

SmilingBoy says that his problems began after he updated to iOS 5.0.1. His iPhone 4S began to drop network. We can see lots of similar threads all over Apple’s discussion forum.

iPhone 4S Network Disappearing 2

There is another problem except iPhone 4S network disappearing issue. Lots of iPhone 4S owners claim about battery life. It decreases drastically with new firmware install. Luckily there are some smart guys facing the same problem. They have found certain solutions for iPhone 4S network disappearing and low battery life.

iPhone 4S Network Disappearing 3

As you can see, iPhone 4S user from Germany found a helpful trick to get disappearing signal back. This one is very simple: just go to Settings > Phone > SIM PIN and turn it off. You should get constant signal without dropping, No Service message or similar errors. If this method doesn’t work, try to update the iPhone firmware from 5.0.1 to 5.1. You should do full restore through iTunes (700+ MB) not the update through iTunes or iCloud (about 100 MB). This is very important because only by restoring your iPhone fully you’ll get all the necessary updates and baseband update. Those who rely on jailbreak or iPhone 4S unlock should stay away from the upgrade as your device will be locked after update anyway. If you’ve tried all of those methods and none of them worked and you still have iPhone 4S network disappearing or battery draining problems, probably you should contact nearest Apple store and ask for phone replacement like these guys:

Looks like Apple really has hardware problems concerning iPhone 4S. Those are iPhone 4S network disappearing problems, 3G connection problems and battery issues. Sounds very familiar to iPhone 4 antenna problem. What do you think of Apple’s manufacturing quality, is it a design problem or Chinese workers should put a little more effort to avoid such situations? Leave your comment to support the discussion.

The reason is simple – Apple company stopped signing older firmwares on pointed devices.
