    Nice. They get their phones back to the way they intended. People choose to has the phones, Apple as every right to protect the use of the phones. :rolleyes:

    Actually, the 'problem' has already been solved. The iPhone can still enter DFU mode if it is connected to the Mac through a USB hub. ;)

    Dev Team says:-

    "DFU Problems

    Lots of users have been experiencing problems with the use of DFU mode after applying yesterday’s 10.5.6 system update.

    We believe this behavior is due to a kernel bug not a specific countermeasure by Apple. Possible fixes are (try at your own risk!) - "

    and they suggest 3 solutions... like just do it on a pc or use a hub!

    Fix the problem by plugging in your iPhone/iPod touch through a usb hub.

    I guess making a bootable back up before updating to 10.5.6 wasn't just paranoia after all.

    well they should work more on perfecting the software than on preventing jailbreaks... since there is still so much missing and a lot of the features i would like to have (like a search funktion for mail) are already avialable with jailbreak
    so it doesn´t seem that difficult to add...
    (my phone is not jailbroken at the moment by the way)

    So does anyone have the 10.5.5 kexts...it seems having to use a USB hub isn't the ideal solution...especially for laptops

    From another thread:

    I just did it... but, I'm not at home to check to see if it worked. (I did it over VNC)
    This should work though.

    The point is that there's no indication that either this or the issues caused by the USB kext's on the newest Macbook and MBP were intentional countermeasures against iPhone hacking. With respect to the MB/MBP issue, it affected other devices as well, including Blackberries, and Apple is already making changes/fixes. With respect to 10.5.6, I don't know yet, but given that even the iPhone Dev Team doesn't seem to think this is Apple going after them, why do you think it is?

    Yes it did actually. Those instructions were actually designed for the new MacBooks, but it works for 10.5.6 on other machines as well. Nice.

    Can't you just download the 10.5.5 Combo Update and extract the files using Pacifist?

    I think you need to use the same capitalization in your file paths there.

    The first thing I did was replace the plugin files from 10.5.5 into the IOUSBFamily.kext file. Then I made sure the modified IOUSBFamily.kext file was on my desktop. Then I simply followed those commands (making sure the file path names were exact). That's it. Then restart.

    Help with iPhone and 10.5.6

    Hi everyone, I need your help with my iphone. I been trying to jailbreak it but unfortunately I can't, I get stuck with a white screen right after I release the home button. I tried using the usb hub and keyboard's USB because I did the mistake to update to the 10.5.6 and now I cant jailbreak my iphone 3G. I want to now if I can go back to the 10.5.5 version, I did a backup using time machine before I updated to 10.5.6. and I want you guys to guide me in how to revert to 10.5.5, I will appreciate any type of help.

    P.S I apologize for my writing and I didn't do the kext solution because I am new with MACS and don't know how to use the terminals.:confused:
    P.S I used quickpwn for the 2.2 jailbreak on osx 3 different times but still get the white screen.

    thanks you guys and Merry Christmas to everyone.
