Firmware 3.0.1 jailbreak





3.0.1-jailbreak

Good news is that you can still use redsn0w 0.8 to jailbreak firmware 3.0.1. Here's the step-by-step plan:

  1. Download both firmware 3.0 and firmware 3.0.1 (link).
  2. Download redsn0w 0.8 (link).
  3. Update or restore to official 3.0.1 in iTunes.
  4. Run redsn0w.
  5. When redsn0w asks you to identify the IPSW used, point it at the 3.0 IPSW instead of the 3.0.1 one.
  6. Follow the instructions.
  7. After the jailbreak, reinstall ultrasn0w 0.9 if you need the unlock.

ultrasn0w 0.91-1 [Cydia]



ultrasnow-0911

The Dev-Team, after a little advice last night, has released an updated for ultrasn0w, the tool that provides unlock  for the iPhone 3G and 3GS.

Through a message on Twitter we found out that this new version fixes a slight bug that appeared when we turn off Airplane mode. So if you have problems - go ahead and update. The update is also recommended for everybody else.

Avaliable in Cydia, repository http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com.

iPhone OS 3.1 beta 2 released: what's new?



iphone-os-31-beta-2

Apple released new SDK and new firmware and 3.1 beta 2. Unless you have a developer account with Apple, don't plugging your iPhone into iTunes, you're not going to have access to it. However here is an unofficial changelist:

  • Minor release focused more to fix the bugs.
  • New APIs for video and images. It appears that there will be many applications in AppStore, suitable to apply effects on a video or create animated slideshow.
  • Xcode bug-fixes.
  • More items have been localized, such as "In Play", "Request access WiFi".
  • Developers will be able to use WiFi for debuging, etc.
  • Baseband is now version 05:10:01. This means that all those who use unlock - do not update yet.
  • The iPhone is heated much less.
  • Old method to turn tethering on  does not work anymore.

UPDATE: Here are direct links to download firmware 3.1 b2:

purplesn0w: iPhone 3GS unloсk solution from GeoHot



purplesn0w

Geohot, the creator of purplera1n, has just released his own iPhone 3GS software unlock and named it purplesn0w. Who is purplesn0w for? If you own a jailbroken iPhone 3GS running firmware 3.0 and you want to unlock it to use it with another carrier (T-Mobile only in the USA), then purplesn0w is for you. Are you experiencing wifi/battery/other unlocking problems after using ultrasn0w? Then I highly recommend you try purplesn0w. Geohot says that it’s the best unlock out there.

purplesn0w doesn't run any deamon (resident app) on the iPhone, it just patches three files: CommCenter, lockdownd, and wildcard. You need an activated device in order to use purplesn0w, this is a minus.

Here is how to install purplesn0w:

  • Make sure you have an activated iPhone 3GS. If you have T-Mobile make sure you disable 3G in the settings.
  • Open Cydia, and add http://apt.geohot.com to your sources
  • Install the com.geohot.purplesn0w package
  • Watch for the success output in Cydia
  • Reboot your iPhone 3GS

Once you have followed the steps above, your iPhone 3GS should be unlocked.

Update: Geohot has also posted technical details of purplesn0w here along with the source code of purplesn0w. He plans to release an updated version of purplesn0w with hactivation support.

GeoHot vs DevTeam: new version of Purplera1n soon?



geohot2

geohot

Now everyone will know that the DevTeam and GeoHot are no longer in good terms and in fact shortly after the release of Redsn0w 0.8, the tool to run the jailbreak of Firmawre 3.0, there were many discussions on Twitter between GeoHot and copumpkin, one of the DevTeam members.

GeoHot  complained that redsn0w uses the same "hole" and the same exploit to run the iPhone 3GS Jailbreak, copumpkin said that the flaw was the same but the exploit was completely different and created entirely by them. Not trusting, GeoHot asked repeatedly Hash codes (the identity) for the files needed to run the exploit and said that it had not been a good idea to release two programs that use the same "hole" (stealing?).

GeoHot also said, that redsn0w has problems (which is true, some users have reported problems) and so he plans to release a new better version of Purplera1n. It will probably will also unlock the iPhone.

iPhone 3GS jailbreak and unlock soon



hack-iphone3gs

And after the various Key and provocations made by GeoHotz, the DevTeam has decided to write a new article on the official blog with good news for all owners of an iPhone 3GS! The DevTeam has verified that the exploit called 24Kpwn (used for the first time to unlock the iPod Touch 2G) is still valid and it works wonderfully for iPhone 3GS.

It seems the new version of bootrom used by Apple in 3GS dates back in August, a few months before the release of 24Kpwn, so there was no time to solve the problem.

In addition, the new daemon released by the team under the name of ultrasn0w (unlock for iPhone 3G) will work with iPhone 3GS.

New versions of redsn0w (jailbreak) and ultrasn0w (unlock) with iPhone 3GS support will be released soon.

PwnageTool 3.0 for Mac OSX



pwnage 20

DevTeam released PwnageTool for firmware 3.0. Here is the list of supported deviced:

  • iPhone 2G - jailbreak and unlock
  • iPhone 3G - only jailbreak, use only with official unlocked iPhones
  • iPod Touch - jailbreak
  • iPod Touch 2G - not supported, use redsn0w
  • iPod Touch 3GS - not supported

If you are using a 3G iPhone with yellowsn0w and rely on yellowsn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should NOT use PwnageTool right now. Ultrasn0w is not included with this release and therefore your baseband will be locked and unable to use an operator other than the official one it was bought for. Ultrasn0w will be release via APT (cydia and icy) soon (update: Ultrasn0w released). If you have an original iPhone (1st generation) then 3.0 unlock works with this PwnageTool release.

Yellowsn0w in its current form will NOT work with the baseband version that is present in the 3.0 update, you will need Ultrasn0w, which will be released sometime soon, Ultrasn0w will work with all iPhone 3G models (but not 3GS), even ones that were previously unlockable, Ultrasn0w will be released via APT (this means you can get it via Cydia or Icy).

PwnageTool will NOT work for the iPhone 3GS. PwnageTool WILL work for Original iPhone (1st Generation), Original iPod touch (1st Generation) and the iPhone 3G.

You can donwload PwnageTool 3.0 here.
