blacksn0w crashes 3.1.2 firmware 05.11.07 baseband 3GS, no shsh on file (Solution)

Many have reported having a problem where blacksn0w works for a period of time on a 3.1.2 firmware 05.11.07 baseband 3GS, but then crashes and goes into a permanent boot loop. Upon restoration, blacksn0w no longer unlocks the phone, but rather the phone simply says “Searching…”, freezes, and enters into another boot loop. The problem seems to result from a corrupted baseband. Restoring with custom 3.1.2 firmware with blacksn0w included doesn’t fix it, nor does restoring with 3.1 and trying to blacksn0w.

The problem should be fixed by a factory restore to 3.1.2 firmware, which will refresh the baseband to 05.11.07 and allow you to unlock the phone again. However, if you don’t have your 3.1.2 shsh on file, you cannot complete a factory restore and are stuck with custom jailbroken firmwares that don’t include baseband updates  (only for non-tethered/old bootrom 3gs’).

Solution: Manually flash to the phone the 05.11.07 baseband update extracted from an official 3.1.2 3GS firmware. You don’t have to have your SHSH on file, but your phone has to be bootable. Use a custom 3.1.2 ipsw from pwnagetool to get up and running if you are still in the boot loop and dont have your shsh (only for old bootrom non-tethered 3gs’). If you are stuck in a recovery loop with a tethered jailbreak/new bootrom and don’t have your 3.1.2 shsh on file, you may be out of luck getting back to 3.1.2.

A specific .dmg ramdisk must be extracted from the firmware and decrypted to reveal the baseband update files, but this is too complicated and has been done for you.

Requirements:

  • MobileTerminal (installed from cydia)
  • OpenSSH or iPhoneBrowser (so you can transfer files to the phone)
  • Baseband update files: http://www.multiupload.com/RBTUJSJEW8 (more mirrors below)

The baseband update files include:

ICE2_05.11.07.fls (MD5: 30443351a76d74fcb3599a631fd910f4)
ICE2_05.11.07.eep (MD5: cdb2b86f15fbf273d74d8e28d61c27ed)
BBUpdaterExtreme (MD5: faeb92dfcccedd2399582698a1a986c0)

Put these 3 files into your /tmp directory on the 3Gs using SFTP, iPhoneBrowser, DiskAid, etc.

As root (enter su first; default password: alpine), run these commands in MobileTerminal (4 separate commands):

cd /tmp
chmod 755 BBUpdaterExtreme
launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
./BBUpdaterExtreme update -f ICE2_05.11.07.fls -e ICE2_05.11.07.eep

Once the updater is finished (takes a few minutes), reboot the phone by entering the command reboot in MobileTerminal or do it manually with the sleep button. When your 3gs loads, you can apply blacksn0w to your fresh 05.11.07 baseband. Good Luck.

Note:
This will only work if you are on the 05.11.07 baseband. If you have a baseband below 05.11.07, I would not recommend updating. If you’ve upgraded to 05.12.01, you will have to wait for another unlock.

WiFi Issues:
After rebooting once or several times, your WiFi may stop working after you install blacksn0w. In this case, uninstall blacksn0w rc1 and try installing blacksn0w rc2 (not an official geohot release, but a patched version by msft.guy @ http://msftguy.blogspot.com).  The cydia repo is http://cydia.pushfix.info. The patch is designed for 3.1.3 on 05.11.07 bb, but I’ve confirmed it works on 3.1.2 05.11.07bb and seems to have fixed the Wifi issues even after several reboots. More details: http://msftguy.blogspot.com/2010/03/fixing-blacksn0w-on-313.html

**Update on 14 JUN 2010**
Some have wondered if you can apply the baseband patch to 3.1.3 if the baseband is still on 05.11.07. In reality, what OS firmware you are on shouldn’t matter as long as you are on the 05.11.07 baseband. So yes, if you are on 3.1.3 but still on 05.11.07 bb, go for it.

    My iPhone 3GS died the way you described few days ago, I was desperate because I had no SHSH on 3.1.2 firmware, so I couldnt restore clean one.

    Your solution helped, thank you very much. :)

  7. Xonnely Says:

    I have a 3gs running on a customized sn0wbreeze firmware 3.1.3 on baseband 05.11.07. I’ve been having the crashing problem with blacksn0w, i tried the solution above but when i run the command – chmod 755 BBUpdaterExtreme – in mobileTerminal, i get an error message : Operation not permittted.
    Am i doing something wrong? Is there a way round this?

    • crazyfool2100 Says:

      Enter the command su first so you run the command as ‘root’, not ‘mobile’. The default root password is ‘alpine’.

    Good work.

    Really great!

    THANKS!

    Gents,

    thanks a lot.

    but it’s the first time to use Mobile Terminal and i can’t write the whole commands
    it’s always give an error

    can anyone please describe it in steps (when to hit Return, and when to change root…etc)

    thanks.

  11. Manhawy Says:

    Managed to get it update my BB.

    Don’t excatly know what i did differently.

    but in second time in Mobile Terminal it start with “Localhost”

    not “Mobile”.

    Thanks to everybody:)

  12. cagri Says:

    I found tmp directory by winscp. but when I enter into to the winscp I see the address private/var/tmp I transferred three files there. and on my phone on the terminat, I wrote su and alpine and var/mobile root # came. when I wrote the commanda cd/tmp it says no such file or directory. is there anything wrong?

  13. cagri Says:

    ok I solve that problem. I realized that there is a space between cd and / characters. but now I have a new problem “launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    ./BBUpdaterExtreme update -f ICE2_05.11.07.fls -e ICE2_05.11.07.eep” I wrote the commands without enter return. am I doing rigth? because it says nothing found to upload. could you pls say me when I have to press “return button” writing these commands

    • joe Says:

      Hi I’m having the same problem as you. Could you please let me know how you solved it?

  14. cagri Says:

    my phone gets back I am very gratefull to you. thnx alot.

  15. Laurens Says:

    If i type su in the beginning and the password alpine it says: cannot set groups: Operation not permitted.

    What can I do?

  16. soniko Says:

    great work!

  17. Twan Says:

    After entering the 4th line of code MobileTerminal says:
    sh: ./BBUpdaterExtreme: Bad CPU type in executable

    What did I do wrong? I’m logged in as root, in tmp folder, the 3 files are in tmp folder. After entering the 3th line of code my wifi dropped. Status bar is displaying ‘Searching…’ right now, but I think that should be ok.

  18. Twan Says:

    Never mind. I got a 3G so that’s the problem. Fixed it already.

    First updated with a CFW on 3.1.3, than downgraded to 3.1.2 via CFW again.
    Did all steps as you discribed and it works! All in all I sat about 20 hours fixing this problem. Tried it in many ways. But this one was the only one!
    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
    I am happy again :))

    Hi

    Was so pleased when I found this info as iphone is driving me mad. However when I run this I keep getting plist not found.

    Im using Diskaid to put files into tmp and mobile device to input the commands. what am i doing wrong? Is there a simple solution?

    • crazyfool2100 Says:

      Have you checked to make sure the file /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist exists? I don’t see how it wouldn’t unless you deleted it yourself since it is for the commcenter.

      • Steve M Says:

        Hi.

        Checked to see if plist is present and it is.

        I have ran this all again and get the following errors. Im no doubt doing something wrong on input. Is there a return after every line or is lines 3 & 4 one long command (this is what i am doing)

    I have a weird issue: After a certain time when I try to make or receive a call the connection breaks after a second or so. Then the phone says “no network” for a couple of seconds. It then re-connects to my carrier and I can make the call without any problems. Do any of you have similar experiences or any idea what the problem might be?

    Thanks, Wolf

      yeah i think thats normal its been happening to me as-well on my iphone and my girlfriends iphone i think it because randomly the CommCenter on our phones needs to restart once in a while

  52. @iR Says:

    Yes its because you are using a 3G.

  53. Razie Says:

    So is there any solution for iPhone 3G then? I hope someone can help us out here.. Been stuck with this problem for quite awhile.. :(

    • Razie Says:

      Found a solution already.. For those who have this sort of problems on 3G iPhones, just do a stock restore on your phone and JB your iPhone again with blackra1n.. Then just unlock your iPhone with blacksn0w again..

      Hope this helps those who are experiencing the same problem on their iPhone 3G..

      • Rene Says:

        Great!…for you…
        Can you explain to me what you mean with a stock restore?! And which fw?
        TIA

    • Razie Says:

      Use the original 3.1.2 IPSW from Apple.. I think this will in a way flash your corrupted baseband.. Then just JB and unlock your iPhone using the same method as you did before..

      • Rene Says:

        Thanx!!! It worked!! Finally I am able to use my iPHONE again…
        You don’t know how happy I am.

    • crazyfool2100 Says:

      The sole reason for this article is because the 3gs cannot accept a stock firmware 3.1.2 from apple without the shsh on file.

      On the 3g, you are able to download a stock firmware 3.1.2 from apple and restore with that which will update the baseband automatically like this article does for the 3gs. In essence, there would be no reason to provide these files for the 3g.

      If you have a 3g, download a stock 3.1.2 firmware from apple and restore with that. It will update your baseband.

  54. Diego Cardenas Says:

    Thanks you saved and 3Gs on 3.1.3 that was dead for almost 2 months.

  65. socoast Says:

    Am I out of luck?

    I have:

    Tethered Jailbroke 3GS with Blackra1n OS 3.1.2 firmware 5.11.07
    When I first Jailbroke, Feb. 22, I clicked Cydia to Make My Life Easier.

    The phone is stuck in the Recovery Loop and Blackra1n crashes when I try to run it to reboot and respring it.

    Any advice to get the phone back up and running?
    iTunes will not accept the 3.1.2 re-install (wants me to upgrade to 3.1.3?) and Pwnage Tool 3.1.4 can’t get into DFU mode after creating the custom IPSW.

    I use AT&T in the US, but I also use the phone in Panama with Cable & Wireless, so unlocking is really needed.

    Advice appreciated greatly!

    Hey crazyfool2100,
    Thanks very much for this, it has clearly helped a lot of people. I was at this point, 3GS 3.1.2 and 05.11.07 JB and unlocked and stuck, at wits end before finding this and followed dev-teams last ditch effort to half upgrade to 3.1.3 leaving BB 5.11.07. It worked to the extent that after custom upgrade and spirit JB I have phone back working, but every attempt to unlock with Blacksn0w rc2 final (yes rc2) results in no wifi and no network just “searching…”. You can tell blacksnow waits to launch because the phone comes up with bars for a second or two then blanks and looses both but operational otherwise.
    Anyway, here’s the question: Do you think this will this work for me even though I’m not really 3.1.2 or do I risk anything trying?
    Thanks

      Hey Tom,

      In reality, the firmware you are on doesn’t matter but the baseband does. As long as you are on baseband 05.11.07, you can follow this procedure.

      In any respect, if the baseband update files aren’t compatible, the updater shouldn’t proceed so there is little risk except seeing error messages.

      Sounds like you are the perfect candidate for this process as those are the same symptoms I had that led me to discover this fix. Let me know how it goes!

  83. Tom G Says:

    Hey CrazyFool,
    You were right, your fix took care of it! I got stalled briefly when I couldn’t get into the the /tmp, lacking afc2 from my Spirit Jailbreak. Since others had been there first, I found the addafc2 on Cydia to take care of it and then like a textbook from there. Many thanks!

    Thank you for the great guide. Fixed my 3GS with custom 3.1.3 firmware with preserved baseband.

    Before this fix, whenever blacksn0w was installed the phone would lag, freeze, lock up, and neither cellular nor wifi worked. After applying this fix, everything is working again! Thanks!

    hello again,
    I find myself stuck with no reason on the same issue.
    I even lost my sim card (I tried to test it somewhere else but nothing: it blocks the phone during boot process)
    I changed my sim card an it works for some days, then I get the famous “searching” instead of signal level
    after I implement your solution, everything works fine
    can someone please tell me why the BB goes corrupted?
    thanks again for this great stuff

  93. A very grateful iphone user Says:

    ATTENTION. After reflashing baseband using the solution on this page, consider replacing blacksn0w with ultrasn0w version 0.93. The ultrasn0w package unlocks ALL basebands and does not cause basebabde corruption.

    Ultrasn0w can be downloaded from http://www.sinfuliphone.com/showthread.php?t=168
    or google for other sources

    Thank you

    Hi Crazyfool,

    My 3GS new bootroom has the problem you describe but even itunes will not resore it to the newest software ( last resort try ) whatever i do, it keeps displayingh the connect to itunes sign. What to do now ?

  97. Cooper Says:

    Have the same problem. Used jailbreakme.com and 2 weeks later my iPhone is fucked. So glad they left all the warnings of what could happen (thanks shit hackers).

    Any how, I tried a restore using iTunes, which would only allow me to update to 4.0.2. Thinking this would work and give me my phone back, I happily let it try the restore. Now every time it gets to the end of the process and fails, returning error 1002.

    I’m guessing I’m screwed until a 4.0.2 jailbreak comes along?

    I have an appointment at the Apple store on Monday, where I’ll try and blag a swap out or even pay a sum for a replacement just to get my phone back. Won’t be hacking my phone again.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
    tell someone!
