  • 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.

      I think they released it because the code they wanted to keep from apple before 3.1, since the code was already public, and there were quiet alot of complaints about purplera1n, so they tried to release a more stable version. However I too think they haven't achieved it.

      People don't get it that the reason some apps like tricker3g and winterboard aren't working isn't because of the jailbreak method. Saurik has to UPDATE the apps so they can work with the 3GS.

      GeoHotz jailbreak was released first and is better and easier than the Dev team.

      Btw if you have problems with redsn0w you need to try it on XP. If you are on Vista it just won't work. Tried it on my friends iPhone 2G and it always stuck on waiting for reboot no matter how many times i tried.

      Ok some need to stop hating here..... there is room for multiple JB methods. I prefer the easier purplera1n but redsn0w is also a great JB. Let's keep our head about us here ffs.

      anyone know how to contact the tricker3g or voipover3g devs to see when they might provide a fix? this is the main reason to jb for me and i'm sure many others.

      Thanks for the confirmation. Some folks on bigboss.org were reporting voipover3g didn't work. I will give it a try later this evening.

      Gruk, I contact the DEV for voipover3g as this was my main reason for JB as well. Its all around updates to mobile substrate which Saurik will be working on as his next project. With the amount of anticipation around it...i wouldnt see it taking TOO long

      download the latest red sn0w which is 0.8

      i downloaded the ispw that was given to me on this web site that was posted a few mins ago

      do all the steps it ask you to do

      power down the iphone 3gs while it is unplugged

      plug in 3gs while holding home button and should work

      for some reason when i was doing the other methods of holding the buttons it did not work

      One problem people might hit when using Redsn0w over Purplera1n - as reported by a colleague of mine on another forum:

      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?
      2nd that

      If your sh*t is working with the first JB (purplera1n) then why reJB with this one?
      I ran purplera1n days ago and it is rockin along just fine and now with winterboard (thanks). I also have VoIp working via fring using SIP, not tried Skype yet.
