GeoHot Posts iPhone 3GS RAMDisk Key

GeoHot Posts iPhone 3GS RAMDisk Key

Posted June 24, 2009 at 10:41am by iClarified · 17909 views
GeoHot has managed to decrypt the RAMDisk for the iPhone 3GS and has posted the key.

Once the vfdecrypt key is found it will be possible to use the key with the 'vfdecrypt' tool to decrypt the main filesystem DMG found in the .ipsw file.

Ramdisk Key
IV: E345E23BB266FCC2BA23A2E0BE77A3BF
KEY: 44514633CE2AEAD62BCFA8836CDA4A3C
and a little more...

Props to whoever gets the vfdecrypt one

This news comes just after GeoHot posted an image demonstrating a custom command to iBoot.

Yes, Musclenerd has indeed found the vfdecrypt key and posted it on Geohotz's blog itself. VFDECRYPT Key: 7D779FED28961506CA9443DE210224 F211790192B2A2308B8BC0E7D4A2CA6 1A68E26200E What does this mean? 1. We are now one step closer towards JAILBREAKING the iPhone 3GS 2. It would help us create the custom firmware (bypass baseband updates, install Cydia, etc) for the 3GS 3. The soft unlock for the iPhone 3G (Ultrasn0w) can now be tested on the 3GS. If the same vulnerability exists in the 3GS baseband too, the payload injection could successfully unlock the iPhone 3GS too. Fingers crossed....

is that a long process that can take one day or i mean does it take time?? jus a question sorry im slow at this stuff and if soo how long could this take

Wow. You people are retarded! This only means we are getting closer to seeing the contents of the .DMG files found inside an .IPSW. Once that happens, then we can begin to unlock the iPhone ysyem software. This doesn't necessarily have anything to do with unlocking the modem to use with t-mobile for example. That will come much later for the 3Gs.

yea i know eh we have a fkn life bro
Aaron - June 25, 2009 at 12:09am
Do you have a life bro? Just stop asking stupid questions!
michael - June 25, 2009 at 11:56am
actully BRO i do have a life ?? okay i dont ponder on internet everyday looking for hacks all i want is my god dam iphone 3G S to be jailbroken so i can use it
Aaron - June 25, 2009 at 12:39pm
You ask when do they think its gonna be finnished? They just announced that the key has been decrypted! Im sure just like everything else, there will be problems that arent expected, and other workarounds have to be found, so when you see that the Unlock is available for the 3Gs, then its ready! Dont be a moron.

Aaron, What you don't seem to understand is that people here don't know everything that's involved in jailbreaking and are trying to find out information about it by asking questions. You seem to think this makes them retarded, but really the people who know this stuff (and are doing it) are friggin' brilliant. Anyway, the question which I don't think you understood was, previously when we got to this point, how long before jailbreaking tools were released to the public? If you have insight into this, it would be helpful...either a guestimated timeline, or discussion of the remaining obstacles involved. I'm by no means an expert on this, but from what I recollect with previous iPhone jailbreak solutions is that we're roughly a couple of weeks or more away. After that, from what I've heard the unlock solution could be ready to go as soon as the jailbreak is because the 3GS shares the same baseband as the 3G.

GeoHotz was the one who helped dev-team with yellowsnow.
Awayze - June 24, 2009 at 2:33pm
Not to mention, he hacked the first iPhone, the bootloader 4.6 and the iPhone 3G bootloader.
michael - June 24, 2009 at 12:34pm

itaintrite - June 24, 2009 at 11:24am
Of course 3GS can be broken. Was only a matter of time.
