Unlock the iPhone / iPad

For the iPhone:

When you take an iPhone from an operator with a package (TNT, Tmobil ...), usually your iPhone is locked to that provider. You can not use the SIM card from another operator to take full advantage of your iPhone.
In France, three months after the purchase date of your mobile you can request free désimlockage official with your operator. Contact your operator to know how to unlocked (contact information available in this article).
In the other cases (eg iPhone purchased abroad) will require a unlocked unofficial.
To unlock your iPhone, you will need before the Jailbreak: This process disables the free signature verification of Apple allowing you to install applications that have not been validated by Apple. They are usually available on Cydia or another repository (or sources).
Afterwards you can install the application or use Ultrasn0w GEVEY SIM to unlock your iPhone. If you have an iPhone or iPhone 4S 4 iOS 5.0 or 5.0.1, see this article.
For now enjoy all the benefits of Jailbreak: Jailbreak your iPhone, using the many free tools and follow the steps using our tutorials. After the jailbreak, you will have access to Cydia.
Tools to jailbreak and désimlockage is free from the iPhone Dev-Team, Chronic Dev Team and Geohot.

For iPad:

Unlike the iPhone, iPad is not simlocker: This means that you can use any SIM card, and not only that of the operator from whom you acquired it.
However to benefit from applications not available on the AppStore, you will Jailbreak your iPhone. This process is free.
The advantages of the jailbreak are the same as for the jailbreak of the iPhone. The only difference is that for the unlocked iPhone is possible.

With only a week to go before WWDC 2012 and the surprises Apple will announce there, today seems like a good time to release updates to our suite of free software to include the rocky-racoon jailbreak and untether developed by @pod2g and @planetbeing!  Today’s updates are:

PwnageTool 5.1.1
redsn0w 0.9.12b1
cinject 0.5.4 (version 0.5.3 also had rocky-racoon but this includes some updates)
ultrasn0w 1.2.7 (5.1.1 compatibility only - no new baseband support)
If you’ve already installed rocky-racoon, don’t bother reinstalling it unless you’ve had problems and would like to try a different tool.  The underlying untethered jailbreak (rocky-racoon) is identical to what is already installed by last week’s tools like Absinthe, cinject-0.5.3, and the rocky-racoon Cydia package — only the injection method offered by the above tools differs.

redsn0w allows owners of A4+earlier devices to install rocky-racoon two different ways:
backup/restore method similar to Absinthe and cinject
its traditional limera1n-based ramdisk install.  If you have a lot of media on your A4 device (music, movies, TV shows, etc), then the ramdisk method is preferrred because it avoids any possibility of later problems related to syncing to iCloud (including Photo Stream and Music Match).  The ramdisk method is not available for A5 devices or later because limera1n can’t be used.  If you’d like to use redsn0w’s ramdisk method, just be sure to put the A4 device in DFU or Recovery mode before starting redsn0w (otherwise it will immediately start to use the backup/restore method).

We’ve also added a new redsn0w feature specifically for those who got in on the SAM unlock: you can now include your SAM tickets as part of your initial ramdisk jailbreak of iPhone4 or earlier, or alternatively you can upload your SAM tickets to any device after its been jailbroken.  redsn0w accepts either the individual SAM activation ticket plist file, or the entire zip file created by redsn0w’s “Backup” button.  As usual, redsn0w continues to cover all of its previous jailbreaks and untethers (so redsn0w-0.9.12b1 covers everything from 5.1.1 all the way back to 4.1). 

PwnageTool also avoids any possible sync issues, but again it applies only to A4+earlier devices.  If you unlock your iPhone with ultrasn0w or a commercial method, you must use PwnageTool to avoid updating your baseband otherwise you’ll lose the unlock.  PwnageTool will also jailbreak+untether the AppleTV2,1 5.0_2B206f (unless you customize the IPSW further, you’ll have just basic SSH access to the device).

If you’d like to contribute to those that actually developed rocky-racoon, please visit here (any other links you may see are not going to the actual rocky-racoon developers, they’re being diverted to other “related” or fraudulent accounts).

This particular jailbreak brought an unusual amount of fanfare and hoopla to the table, including “press releases” and other haughty silliness.  We’d just like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that jailbreaking is about freedom, not fame and donations!

How to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 using RedSn0w 0.9.12b1, no DFU method

How to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 using RedSn0w 0.9.12b1, no DFU method

With the

release of RedSn0w 0.9.12.b1, you now have the ability to perform an untethered jailbreak on almost every iOS

5.1.1 compatible device. RedSn0w 0.9.12b1 even works with A5 devices like the iPad 2, the new iPad, and the iPhone 4S.

The only requirement for A5 devices is that you use the non-DFU method when using

RedSn0w. RedSn0w also includes support for the older DFU-based limera1n method
as well, but that is for A4 devices and below only. In this particular
tutorial, we will showcase how to jailbreak your device using the universal
non-DFU method that works with all devices.

This is the simpler of the two methods included with RedSn0w, and is recommended unless

your device happens to contain a lot of media, as noted by the iPhone Dev Team.

Check inside for the full how-to…

Note: I
recommend that you start with a clean install on your compatible iOS 5.1.1 device. All devices that run iOS
5.1.1 are compatible with the untethered jailbreak
outside of the Apple TV 3. If you want to jailbreak the Apple TV 2, use the
latest version Seas0nPass.

Step 1:
Connect your iOS 5.1.1 device to your computer.

Step 2:
Download RedSn0w 0.9.12b1 and run it.

Step 3:
Click jailbreak, and wait patiently until the device restores, then resprings, and the Cydia logo
appears on your Home screen.

Step 4: Run
Cydia and let it initialize for the first time.
Congratulations your device is now jailbroken untethered on iOS 5.1.1.

Please be
sure to watch the video to see how easy this jailbreak really is. We will
follow up shortly with a tutorial that showcases the traditional DFU-mode
jailbreak for A4 devices and below.
