    Default How-To: Removing blackra1n/limera1n hacktivation

    This guide is intended for people who have had problems with the blackra1n/limera1n method of hacktivation.

    For example you are on a legitimate contract but you ran blackra1n to jailbreak while the iPhone still displayed the "slide for emergency" screen
    Or if you have an iPhone 4 and find that facetime support no longer works after using limera1n's hacktivation.

    This can be useful if you want to fix push notifications or you want to use the push donor script. See http://www.cmdshft.ipwn.me/blog/?p=496 for details on this.

    The guide does not require a restart of the iPhone (so minimal risk for those with tethered jailbreaks) and can be reversed if necessary.

    NOTE: remove any passcode set on your iPhone (not SIM passcode - they are OK) before attempting this procedure. Otherwise you may need to restore (or revert the changes)

    The iPhone should be connected to your computer and iTunes must be running.
    Install Erica's Utilities and SSH from Cydia (or MobileTerminal or iSSH connecting to 127.0.0.1)
    Login as root:

    Run the following commands

    Code:
    plutil -EnvironmentVariables -rmkey DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mobile.lockdown.plist
    rm -r /var/root/Library/Lockdown
    launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mobile.lockdown.plist && launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mobile.lockdown.plist
    To reverse this (if you want to go back to hacktivation):
    Code:
    plutil -EnvironmentVariables -dict  /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mobile.lockdown.plist 
    plutil -EnvironmentVariables -DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES -string /usr/lib/hacktivate.dylib  /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mobile.lockdown.plist
    rm -r /var/root/Library/Lockdown
    launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mobile.lockdown.plist && launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mobile.lockdown.plist

    Did my instructions say to do ANY of that?

    What model iPhone do you have? There is a custom app based on redsn0w that can disable CommCenter so you can fix your problem.

    So you have sorted out your bootloop problem (by restoring to 3.1.3 - not ideal but not a bad solution to your existing problem either).

    Don't threadjack. The problem you have now described has NOTHING to do with the existing thread. Search - there are other threads that relate to your problem. Post there.

    Thanks for the info, however I did this and nothing happened. So I choose 'clear all settings' under general, and it rebooted to a 'slide for emergency call' screen.

    Awesome I thought. So I connected to itunes like it asked, then it activated the phone and made it's first sync.

    I tested push out with a variety of applications and it still doesn't work. any ideas?

    I'm jailbroken with limera1n on 4.0 (greenpoins0n wouldn't actually jailbreak it) and I don't have my shsh blobs saved from 4.0 since it was recent. Just for 4.1

    Obviously I'd like to keep my phone's ability to be unlocked.

    Did any of the lines return an error message? Are you sure you installed plutil correctly?

    what model phone do you have 3GS or iPhone 4?

    3gs

    Not sure, I installed it from modmyi on cydia. Is that correct?

    Third command gave several 'already loaded' errors.

    I've included the entire output for you here

    That is a bit strange.

    Could you try this modified version:

    Code:
    plutil -EnvironmentVariables -rmkey DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mobile.lockdown.plist
    rm -r /var/root/Library/Lockdown
    launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mobile.lockdown.plist && launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mobile.lockdown.plist
    killall lockdownd SpringBoard
    Also, if you could post the SHA1 or MD5 of your lockdownd executable it would be great
