Ultrasn0w 0.8: now unlock for iPhone 3GS



ultrasn0w-0-8

Great news for all iPhone 3GS users. DevTeam updated ultrasn0w, software that unlocks iPhone with firmware 3.0. Now it supports iPhone 3GS!

Avaliable in Cydia, repo: repo666.ultrasn0w.com

Here are quick instructions:

  1. Ensure you have firmware 3.0
  2. Jailbreak your iPhone using redsn0w (this will also install Cydia)
  3. Run Cydia
  4. Please add the repo repo666.ultrasn0w.com to Cydia. That last “o” is actually the number zero “0”! If you use the letter “o” you’ll get an error.
  5. Search for ‘ultrasn0w’ in cydia or icy and install ultrasn0w
  6. Reboot your iPhone 3G
  7. T-Mobile USA users should disable 3G before using ultrasn0w
  8. Enjoy
  9. If you have any problems reset your network settings (it helped many users): Settings->General->Reset->Reset Network Settings

Purplera1n: iPhone 3GS jailbreak by GeoHot



purplera1n1

Geohot released a beta software for iPhone 3GS jailbreak called PurpleRa1n. It is beta and has some issues, but it gets the job done if you’re patient.

Requirements: You must have
1) Windows xp sp2, Vista, Windows 7, MAC OS
2) iTunes 8.2.0.23
3) Purplera1n software

The jailbreak is a bit incomplete. The kernel vm_mem patch is not present so Winterboard will not work as some other critical tweaks. (SBSettings does work!).

Use with caution and be patient. If you're not in a hurry, wait for the release from DevTeam.
