iPhone 3GS and iPad

How come the IPSWs for the iPad and iPhone 3GS, they don't have a bb file like the others do? --5urd 23:53, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

The baseband files for the X-Gold 608 are tucked inside of the ramdisks. The X-Gold 618 and MDM6600 baseband files are outside of the ramdisks since they require SHSH-like signatures. --Dialexio 17:13, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
So we need a Restore Ramdisk IV and Key to get at them (or install) --5urd 17:17, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

OTA Updates

Here is something interesting I found in the XML File:

<plist version="1.0">

So, what is 9A5332? --5urd 20:51, 13 October 2011 (MDT)

I downloaded the asset file and in the BuildManifest.plist, at the bottom, it says 9A332 for the iPhone 3GS... I am assuming 9A5332 and 9A332 are the same. So is this an internal beta? --5urd 23:02, 13 October 2011 (MDT)
I was just looking into it, too :) I can't download it right now, my connection is slow. Can you find the SystemVersion.plist and see what is the ReleaseType value? --pjakuszew 06:07, 14 October 2011 (MDT)
You just enter {plist}{dict}(assets){dict}(__BaseURL) followed by {plist}{dict}(assets){dict}(__RelativePath) into your browser...
The /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist is located under \AssetData\payload\patches\System\Library\CoreServices\ and is a DIFF like all the other files under \AssetData\payload\patches\. I am guessing if you hav 5.0b7 for the iPhone 3GS, you could do it... I'll do it right now --5urd 07:07, 14 October 2011 (MDT)
As this is a patch (diff) file, I can't work with it though. I can email you it or upload it to mega or something... --5urd 07:54, 14 October 2011 (MDT)
I know how to download it, I have played with OTA updates in beta period, the problem is that I'm on a very slow CDMA connection right now. Maybe I'll be able to download it tommorow. But since you say that SystemVersion.plist is just patched in this update, instead of being replaced like in earlier updates, this build seems to be a public variant... Even the index file does not specify ReleaseType (in beta period they used to do that), so we can assume this is just an unreleased beta which was a candidate for a GM release --pjakuszew 08:15, 14 October 2011 (MDT)
Yah, it is called SystemVersion.plist.patch. I tried using GNU patch, but I couldn't figure it out. A GM? That makes sense... --5urd 15:34, 14 October 2011 (MDT)
