3gs: iPhone is disabled connect to iTunes
Posted 03 March 2010 - 03:35 PM
How can I recover the unlock the phone? It's jailbroken with blackra1n and is a tethered device.
I'm on firmware 3.1.2 and depend on blacksn0w for carrier unlock. Restoring is not an option coz I did not save what one is supposed to save in Cydia servers if you own a 3gs. And FYI apple stopped signing 3.1.2.
I having problems browsing the phone file system. ssh is not installed neither is cydia. ifunbox, iPhone browser, etc are not recognizing the phone.
How should I go from here? As I mentioned earlier I depend on carrier unlock so 3.1.3 is a no go.

@any18 restoring without my shsh isn't an option. Last year at time like this I had to use my 3g unwillingly as an iPod touch for months till the 3gs showed up together with ultrasn0w. It's seems I'm back there again.
I had read somewhere if one wanted to bypass the password and your phone is jailbroken one would ssh into the device and delete some file(s). Is this true? how come I can't use file explorers? Isn't there a way to grab shsh files without cydia or rock? What's verbose mode? Is there an ibooterwin for 3gs where one can run commands without the phone being "on" as in terminal mode?

Nothings on. For knowledge purposes what would I have done if wifi was on and knew my iPhone ip?
if you dont know the password and currently cant get into the device
unless wifi is enabled and connected and you know your phones IP
then your only option is a restore and there is nothing else that can be done

Niacin explained that a similar app, iPhuc, works with the iBoot, but requires iTunes' mobile device library. Not only is iBooter more flexible, it can also get replies from iBoot after sending a command unlike iPhuc. Just keep in mind that your iPhone should be in recovery mode when you try to run iBooter, and you're good to go.)
I don't know if its updated to work with the 3gs.
Cause I was thinking if it hopefully works I would put my 3gs in recovery mode, launch ibooter backup necessary files with unix command "cp" run a command like "rm /System/library/Lockdown/*"
My intentions would be to delete the file(s) where the iPhone password is stored, reboot the device and voil¨¤! Password gone. No restoring!
Please someone what files I'm supposed to delete? So I could try the above.
