  • 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.

    OS X Guide HERE

    The downloads are available via:

      Full restore then redsn0w

      So i'm assuming that you use the same apple restore software that you used on the 3g with the other redsn0w, you just use the new redsn0w software for THIS jb.

      Does any one know if vwallpaper works on the purplera1n jailbreak or the dev team jailbreak.

      For me it was different, when I first opened Skype after instaling voipover3g, Skype told me that it does not support a modified version of the iPhone OS. Then it didn't crash, but It didn't let me call either.

      *sits by like the fat kid who can't swim while everyone else plays in the water til someone answers my question*

      EDIT: I'm gonna go with my instinct and try renaming the zip to ipsw

      EDIT#2: Got "syntax of the command is incorrect" from the command prompt

      just rename it and change the .zip to .ipsw

      Tried redsnow jailbreak on 3GS several times and it keeps stopping at waiting for reboot screen, currently been waiting 20 minutes. Don't think its going to reboot, any suggestions for anyone or is anyone having the same problems?

      Im on Vista 32bit and first time as soon as it said something about jailbreak on redsn0w the application crashed (got the program has stopped working error)

      Second time it got to uploading ramdisk and crashed, the phone is working fine right now, but ill restore it just incase. What should I do?

      StealthBravo reported last night in another thread that the mobilesubstrate needs some more work to fix the Tricker/Voip3G so that it will work. That is the next project Saurik will be working on so give him time.

      This seems much more stable than purplera1n but I seem to have lost wi-fi anybody know how to fix this?

      EDIT: Ultrasn0w seems to have been the culprit. As soon as I removed it, wi-fi came back

      Going to restore and try this again, the JB is quite buggy.

      Tried that a few different ways...wasn't working.

      What I ended up having to do was open it with Winzip and then choose "Save Copy As" and add the "ipsw"
