jailbreakImported iPhones often have the problem that after the jailbreak of OS 3.0, the YouTube application and the Push notifications don’t work anymore. The iPhone Dev Team have now come up with a solution where they solve the push-problem with ‘PushFix’. Team-member @planetbeing announced the fix via Twitter, but says that it is a quick-and-dirty-solution. To use you need a friend with an iPod touch or an activated iPhone.

Download it here: PushFix.zip

The instructions exist of two steps (A and B): first you need to find out the correct keychain-data on your iPod touch or activated iPhone and after that you have to copy the zip file on your jailbroken iPhone. Instructions can be found in the comments on Dev Team’s Blog. Who thinks that’s too much of an effort, you better wait two or three weeks. Are push notifications that important?

A. Get Legit Keychain Data:
*You Must Perform These Steps On A Properly Activated Device (iphone or ipod touch) with at least one working push app*

1. Unzip the downloaded zip file and copy the binary ‘nimble’ using SSH into /private/var/Keychains and set permission to 0755

2. Make sure the file “keychain-2.db” is in /private/var/Keychains and run nimble. You will see 4 files being created:
– youtube-cert.bin
– youtube-key.bin
– push-cert.bin
– push-key.bin

3. Copy these 4 files into the corresponding folder on your hactivated device.

B. Testing Push:
*You Must Perform These Steps On Your Hacktivated Device*

1. Unzip the downloaded zip file and copy the following files using SSH into /private/var/Keychains and set permission to 0755:
– inject
– nimble

2. Store in somewhere else the current “keychain-2.db” and run inject. A new keychain-2.db will be created

3. Uninstall the push app (i.e. beejive or similar) you intend to test on from your hacktivated device and reboot

4. Test youtube, reinstall the above push app and test.

A small supplement is that GeoHot has released an update for his purplera1n-jailbreak. It now supports Windows Vista, Windows 7, 64-bits systems and international versions. The log process has been improved as well, kernal patches have been done, etc etc. To download it, click here: purplera1n.com.
