  • 3GS Jailbreak - redsn0w 0.8 - DevTeam Style


    While geohot may have beaten the DevTeam to a 3GS jailbreak, they were not far behind - redsn0w 0.8 (the DevTeam's official jailbreak tool for all 3.0+ iDevices) has just been released, and is compatible with the iPhone 3GS.

    Oh, and check it out - works on Linux too!

    EDIT: To clarify, this is NOT compatible with 3.1 - 3.0 only.

    redsn0w is a easy to use, multi-platform, multi-device jailbreaking and unlocking tool for the iPhone 2G (original iPhone), the iPhone 3G/3GS and also the iPod touch(1st generation and second generation). Currently it is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

      geohot's code is just as good if not better than the dev teams. What happened to waiting for 3.1? Can't stand for someone else to have the spotlight? Geez

      Jesus..everyone turns on the Dev Team just like that? Two people have errors when running (they had purplra1n on it too) and everyone assumes the Dev Team is second-tier now?

      Must not be Philly people . Sticking with our team through it all

      EDIT- Nevermind it was released

      I assume that you are talking about the installation code, wonder if there are any differences on what actually gets installed/modified.

      Had an issue with BossPrefs/SBSettings with 3Gs, kept disabling my 3G and tossing me into Edge or worse, fixed once I removed it. Outside of that issue, perfect.

      Oh yea using Poof to hide YouTube actually removes it so you cant watch videos, didnt used to as far as I can remember on my old 2G

      Installed SBSettings, and after install Cydia froze.
      Restart, SBSettings was there and working fine.
      Installed Winterboard, 1st try installed but no icon. 2nd try, installed and worked like a charm. YAY!! So happy! A little buggy, but not much more than usual. Happy happy happy jber right here!

      Add me to your list

      I ran GeoHot JB and have no problem, cydia is running super fast (Thanks to 3GS), sbsetting working fine (This was the main reason for my JB), so far I don't see any problem.
      Plus, it was so easy to JB, how can you beat pressing a single button "make it ra1n"?

      It seems many people thinks dev-team JB is better because it says it patches some kernel....but doesn't mobilesubstrat make winterboard and such operate? We JB to modify mobilesubstrate so that we can run winterboard and such apps. So IMO, GeoHot's purplera1n and Dev-Team's redsn0w has no difference and dev team just released this because GeoHot beat them.

      Remeber Dev-Team saying waiting for 3.1 to release jailbreak a week ago?

      Was hoping you would comment on this (or someone). WTF is that all about? They don't even update their blog, they just mention it on twitter and then put links on PB.

      Beejive or Mobileme? Because on the purplera1n jailbreak my Beejive push notifications worked fine, but Mobileme mail push notifications didn't work.

      Thanks

      Lmao @ Dev team. Theyre like "were releasing the jailbreak when 3.1 comes out becuz of teh future problems". BULL**** GeoHotz released his before and now they had to.
