Hacktivate iOS 4.3 On iPhone iPad iPod Touch Without Developer Account


by casey on January 20, 2011

iOS 4.3 beta 1 and iOS 4.3 beta 2 has been released already for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. As we know that the beta version is only for the testing purpose by Apple and only those who have enrolled with Apple’s developer account can download it. Means for public is is yet to be unveiled. Are you not a developer ?? You can still download iOS 4.3 beta 1 or 2 and update your device to it without any developer account.

Quick Guide on how to “hacktivate” iOS 4.3 without a developer account.

1st Method
1) Install iOS 4.3
2) “Jailbreak” with redsn0w 0.9.6rc8, you should see a white block in de upper left corner from your iPhone, reboot it
3) get iFunBox
4) navigate to “Raw File System” -> /System/Library/CoreServices
5) open SystemVersion.plist and remove the following lines:
6) Reboot the iPhone
7) Activate your iPhone with iTunes

2nd Method (thx to joshingknight)
1) Restore to 4.2.1
2) Shift-Update and point the 4.3 IPSW. heres important that you Shift-Update, not Shift-Restore!
If you want File System Access just jailbreak it like you were on 4.2.1 and reboot your iDevice when its stuck on a black screen, then you have FS Access with tools like iFunBox, but Cydia wont work
Congrats your iPhone is activated now =)
