Sending multiple SMS messages at the same time on the iPhone!

This is just something i threw together quickly for someone on the BiteSMS forums. To do this you will need a Jailbroken device and BiteSMS installed. Trial or full, it does not really matter.

BiteSMS allows the user to send messages though SSH which means it can be coded into scripts which is what i will be showing you in this post. The following code will loop though 5 times and “do” or run the BiteSMS send command to the number 07900000001.

#!/bin/bash
for i in $(seq 5)
do /Applications/biteSMS.app/biteSMS -send -carrier 07900000001 "Test Message $i"
done

You can change the number, message and the amount of times it runs by editing the script.

Please remember you MUST write this in Linux or convert the file to a UNIX format. This is generally done by using the DOS2UNIX command but as the iPhone does not have this installed you will need to find a converter or use the file attached to this post.

Upload this file as “test.sh” (you can name the file whatever you please but ensure it has the .sh extension) to an execuable area on the iPhone file system. I used the following location, “/private/var/mobile”. Once this is done, you must log in to your iPhone via an SSH client and run the following command, “/private/var/mobile/test.sh”.

If you get a access denied error then please keep reading.

Umars-iPhone:~ root# /private/var/mobile/test.sh
-sh: /private/var/mobile/test.sh: Permission denied

This is a simple problem to solve. All this means is that the permissions on the file must be changed and providing you have been following this guide carefully, you can simply copy and paste the following command, “chmod 755 /private/var/mobile/test.sh”. If you used your own path then please use the chmod command but on your own file. This can also be done via FileZilla.

Solving CSF Module Issue

[EDIT: 27/06/2017] This was an unpublished post from the 26th of October 2011 at 04:36 AM.

Please note I am using CentOS v5.7 and some of the commands you find here may not work for any other distributions. I am also using HyperVM to manage my VPS’s, you would not get any of these errors on SolusVM.

You follow instructions at your own risk and only you can be held liable for any changes on your server. This is merely a guide.

Apple iOS 5.0

Untethered iOS 5.0 Jailbreak!

So a few weeks ago, October 12th to be specific, Apple hit us with another update! Personally I think iOS 5.0 is the biggest change if you are comparing an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 4S. There are a few changes to the hardware; a better camera mainly.

I had been waiting for a pretty long time for iOS 5.0 to be released mainly because of the wireless syncing feature. The first thing i thought about when it was released was, is there a jailbreak for this? When I started looking around for a jailbreak, I managed to find a tethered jailbreak from the RedSnow site and I do not normally go for tethered jailbreaks but it was too tempting!

I went ahead and upgraded and to my surprise was un-tethered! I looked around and there was nothing confirmed about a un-tethered jailbreak so I came to the conclusion that because I have the older version of the 3GS which has an older bootrom, the exploit worked properly and permanently! (until restore)

I am not going to go into detail on how to jailbreak because im pretty sure someone else out there will do a much better job at it. A quick google search should find you a good guide.
Jailbreak for iOS 5.0: http://www.redsn0w.us/2010/03/download-direct-links-jailbreak-guides.html (I used v0.9.9b7)

Video of me with my iPhone showing that it is actually jailbroken.

Needless to say, after I solved the jailbreaking issue, a handful of other problems started to appear.
