Hack that Phone.com Installer repository

Mac / Windows

I've decided to create a repository of files and programs on the Installer. It makes it a lot easier for people using my tutorials to install some common tools using the Installer, instead of copying the files via SSH to the iPhone and then having to worry about CHMODding files. It also makes my tutorials shorter when I don't have to explain this all the time. Here is how to access my repository.





Launch the Installer. By default it opens on the Featured page.

iPhone       iPhone



Press the Sources button. Press Edit, then press Add.

iPhone       iPhone



Enter: hackthatphone.com/1.xml   Then press the OK button. After it refreshes the source, it will be back at this screen. Now press the Done button.

You should now see Hack that Phone tools in your Sources list. Press the Install icon at the bottom. Scroll down to the Hack that Phone tools folder and press it.

Here are some of my programs.

My intent is not to steal anyone's thunder or credit. Part of the driving force behind this was the last time I needed to install BSD Subsystem (I was trying to write a tutorial at the time) it took over 2.5 hours to download the damn thing. Needless to say, that won't be happening to me again. I realize it is no one's fault, the servers hosting this package were just busy. I am merely hosting some of the same packages already on, and not on, the Installer. And yes, I have personally tested all these packages and made sure they worked. These are the exact same packages already out there. They are merely being hosted by me now.



Here is what I'm currently hosting:

Baseband Information - Created by Trejan.com, this program will read information from the baseband, SIM and also display some data about the particular iPhone you have. It is a great tool for quickly determining what version of bootloader is on the iPhone. After installing there will be an icon on the SpringBoard.



BSD Subsystem version 2.1 - Created by Nate True (also referred to as a binkit), this collection of critical files allows for many Unix processes to take place on the iPhone. It is critical to other applications being able to function on the iPhone and is generally the first package that should be installed on an iPhone. This does not leave an icon on the SpringBoard after it has been installed.



Downgrade baseband #1 - Compiled by Big Boss at Sleepers.net, this collection of scripts allow for the downgrading of 1.1.1 (04.01.13_G) baseband to 1.0.2 baseband (03.14.08_G). This is NOT for iPhones with the 4.6 boot loader. This program will not leave an icon on the SpringBoard. You must have BSD Subsystem installed. The way this program is used is by launching the Terminal on the iPhone. Then type: cd /usr/bin   Then type: restorebb   The Terminal will reply no such process, but will start shortly after. It will take some 5 minutes to execute so make sure your iPhone is not set to sleep automatically. Keep in mind you should not install version #1 or #2 or #3 or #4 or #5 at the same time on your iPhone.



Downgrade baseband #2 - Compiled by Big Boss at Sleepers.net, this collection of scripts allow for the downgrading of 1.1.2 (04.02.13_G) baseband to 1.0.2 (03.14.08_G) baseband. This is NOT for iPhones with the 4.6 boot loader. This program will not leave an icon on the SpringBoard. You must have BSD Subsystem installed. The way this program is used is by launching the Terminal on the iPhone. Then type: cd /usr/bin   Then type: restorebb   The Terminal will reply no such process, but will start shortly after. It will take some 5 minutes to execute so make sure your iPhone is not set to sleep automatically. Keep in mind you should not install version #1 or #2 or #3 or #4 or #5 at the same time on your iPhone.



Downgrade baseband #3 - Compiled by Fredrik at i.Unlock.no, sometimes downgrade #2 doesn't work. This is just another option. I have personally repaired an iPhone with this program, that the other program could not repair. This program allows for the downgrading of 1.1.2 (04.02.13_G) baseband to 1.0.2 (03.14.08_G) baseband. This is NOT for iPhones with the 4.6 boot loader. This program will not leave an icon on the SpringBoard. You must have BSD Subsystem installed. This program will want to start immediately after installation. It does give you the opportunity to verify that your Auto-Lock is set to Never before beginning however. You could also just turn off the iPhone to keep it from trying to start. It will take some 3 minutes to execute. Keep in mind you should not install version #1 or #2 or #3 or #4 or #5 at the same time on your iPhone.



Downgrade baseband #4 - Compiled by Big Boss at Sleepers.net This program allows for the downgrading of 1.1.3 (04.03.13_G) baseband to 1.0.2 (03.14.08_G) baseband. This is NOT for iPhones with the 4.6 boot loader. This program will not leave an icon on the SpringBoard. You must have BSD Subsystem installed. The way this program is used is by launching the Terminal on the iPhone. Then type: cd /usr/bin   Then type: restorebb   The Terminal will reply no such process, but will start shortly after. It will take some 5 minutes to execute so make sure your iPhone is not set to sleep automatically. Keep in mind you should not install version #1 or #2 or #3 or #4 or #5 at the same time on your iPhone.



Downgrade baseband #5 - Compiled by me, this program allows for the downgrading of 1.1.4 (04.04.05_G) baseband to 1.0.2 (03.14.08_G) baseband. This is NOT for iPhones with the 4.6 boot loader. This program will not leave an icon on the SpringBoard. You must have BSD Subsystem installed. The way this program is used is by launching the Terminal on the iPhone. Then type: cd /usr/bin   Then type: restorebb   The Terminal will reply no such process, but will start shortly after. It will take some 5 minutes to execute so make sure your iPhone is not set to sleep automatically. Keep in mind you should not install version #1 or #2 or #3 or #4 or #5 at the same time on your iPhone.



iRemember - Created by iSpazio.net, this program will fix the issue of websites constantly asking for login information by enabling cookies in Safari. This will not leave an icon on the SpringBoard when it has been installed.



iWorld - Created by Conceited Software. This program is for those who use the iPhone in "non-supported" countries. When you use certain foreign SIM cards and attempt to dial a phone number, the mobilephone.app will crash and send you back to the SpringBoard. This program will leave an icon on the SpringBoard.



Mobile Terminal - Further developed by Big Boss at Sleepers.net, this is a mobile Terminal program for the iPhone. It is used to run Unix commands on the iPhone directly. Some packages like baseband downgrading and repairing require input from this program. While you could use an external Terminal to do this, I find it easier to issue commands locally. This program will leave an icon on the SpringBoard. You must have BSD Subsystem installed.



OpenSSH version 4.6p1-2 - Compiled by Ste at SMXY.org, this program allows for communication between your computer and the iPhone over a wireless connection. You can transfer files to and from the iPhone and set permissions and install programs. This program will not leave an icon on the SpringBoard.



Repair baseband - Compiled by Big Boss at Sleepers.net, this collection of scripts allow for the repairing (or virginizing) of the baseband firmware. This is usually performed after downgrading the baseband. This is performed only when an iPhone has previously been unlocked using anySIM (prior to v1.1), iUnlock or a hardware unlock. This will not leave an icon on the SpringBoard. You must have BSD Subsystem installed. The way this program is used is by launching the Terminal on the iPhone. Then type: cd /usr/bin   Then type: virginize   The Terminal will reply no such process, but will start shortly after. It will take some 3 minutes to execute so make sure your iPhone is not set to sleep automatically.



SIMport - Hosted by Big Boss at Sleepers.net, this program will import any contact stored on a SIM card to the iPhone. After installing SIMport, it will leave an icon on your SpringBoard. You can safely uninstall it after importing your contacts.



SummerBoard Patch - Compiled by iSpazio.net, this program allows SummerBoard to install on 1.1.4 firmware. This will not leave an icon on your SpringBoard. After installing SummerBoard, remove this patch program.
