2g + 3.0 + hacktivation = Broken push
Just to let people know, since I have answered a few threads that were wondering about push or suffering from poor battery life with 3.0; push does not currently work on 2g hackitavated phones.
The error is currently related to Apple Push Service Daemon. Here is part of the error produced. "Stream error occurred for : TLS Error Code=-9831 peer reported unknown certificate authority."
To fix the poor battery life, install a push app if you have not already such as taptap2, AP news, or textfree lite. Go into the settings app and disable push notifications. Your battery life should go back to normal.
The dev team is now aware of the problem after several people trying to contact them about the problem. I say still let the dev team know about the problem, just so they know there is a large enough group that is experiencing the problem. Musclenerd said that it might be looked into after ultrasn0w is release. So there is no ETA for a bug fix, just have to wait I guess. Read here for more info (not my blog) and be sure to read the comments.
Push Notifications on hacktivated 2G iPhone Bram Bourgonjon
I hope this helps and I will be cross-posting this in the pwnage tool forum.
Push works on 2G with redsn0w
The key is to activate the iphone once in a "proper" way with a sim card of your official iPhone Provider (even any prepaid card would work). This gets you a certificate installed from the Apple Push server. Afterwards unlock it with a method which doesn't replace the Firmware, like redsn0w). Therefore Pwange wont work.
Here the steps I've done to succeed.
- Restore with the stock iPhone 1,1_3.0 firmware.
- Activate it with a valid SIM (my case german T-Mobile). So the certificate for push notification would get installed.
- Unlock the iPhone through redsn0w did not replace the entire firmware and kept the installed certificate for push notification
