purplesn0w: iPhone 3GS unloсk solution from GeoHot


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.

Ultrasn0w 0.8: now unlock for iPhone 3GS


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

Firmware 3.0 is slower than 2.2.1?

A few days ago we reported that the statistics showed an increase in speed of firmware 3.0 compared to 2.2.1. This factor, however, does not find confirmation in other applications, because, as you can see from the following table that 3.0 is slower than 2.2.1.

For example is takes 34 seconds to start for firmware 2.2.1 against 47 seconds for 3.0 firmware. The launch time of some applications on the old firmware also sees an advantage of 2-9 seconds compared to 3.0. This is just further evidence showing that the 3.0 firmware has problems and should be optimized. We hope that the update arrives soon!

iPhone 3GS is hacked [Photo]

iphone3gs-jailbreak-2 iphone3gs-jailbreak1

These are the first images of a Jailbroken iPhone 3GS. GeoHotz published them in his blog. DevTeam will publish an updated release of the tool only after the release of firmware 3.0.1. The reason is simple: Given that the Firmware 3.0 is full of bugs, it is clear that Apple will release an update soon. If the DevTeam release new tool, Apple will probably be able to block them with the next update. Tomorrow afternoon we will find more details on the official DevTeam blog. By the way firmware 3.0.1 is scheduled to be released in July.

AdMob statistics on iPhone/iPod firmwares


Admob has released new statistics showing the data about currently installed iPhone and iPod firmwares. Only 1% of the iPod Touch users has updated to firmware version 3.0! Probably the fact that the upgrade costs money discourages some users.


As for the iPhone the upgrade was performed by 44% of users. Of course these statistics may not be accurate as they are based on scripts present only in some AppStore applications.

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.
