  • purplera1n RC2 out for Win & OSX!
    geohot has released the second revision of his windows iPhone 3GS jailbreak. This one includes:
    • Vista, Windows 7, International, 64-bit support
    • Less flakiness in the payload
    • Cydia tar cleaned up
    • Improved logging with slightly more useful errors
    • New kernel patches, codesign errors gone. Props posixninja
    • Added vm_map +x, passed vm_check
    • No winterboard yet, but now that ball is in Saurik's court :-)
    • Still in beta, use caution
    You can download from purplera1n.com. Usage is the same so just follow our guide (windows) OR our OS X guide.

    7/5 UPDATE: Mac version of purplera1n now available for download!

      You asked for it, and we delivered. I'm not a mac coder, so AriX and westbaer stepped up to do it. Check out AriX's blog here. Download link on purplera1n.com, and thank AriX and westbaer next time you see them!

      Also, some more payload stability improvements were made, and the windows version was updated to RC2a. There is no reason to run RC2a if you already have RC2 installed.
      Mac release is out; also rc2a but as said no need for rc2 people to rerun.

      I am tempted to rejailbreak my phone using the Mac version just to try it out.

      He also said that he made stability improvements to the Windblowz version. I'm assuming that means he did not make those changes to the OS X version seeing as he didn't code that version. It could be a headache for you.

      aptbackup works for me

      hey quick question guys,
      if i wanted to put my phone back to original settings (un-jailbreak it, i.e. bring it back to stock) how do I do this?

      do I just restore it in itunes like normal?
      I just want to be super clear about this because i only hacked my iPhone 1G.
      thanks

      Ye you just simply plug your phone in and click restore. Back to stock as before.

      Thanks to 2 or 3 of you for explaining my previous post. If the dev-teams jailbreak drops and then the winterboard fix for the 3GS magically appears in cydia then i will be dissapointed in the dev-team. Very childish.

      And no issues with the mac version so far?

      Actually according to saurik, purplera1n is lacking a couple of critical patches that winterboard requires. So I believe geohot would have to include this in the next release. I don't think there's anything saurik can do.

      The latest purplera1n release said he fixed them and now it is up saurik to fix. The last tweet from saurik was before rc2 of purplera1n, where fixed the issues.

      The RC2 patched everything saurik was mentioning. If you follow geohot on twitter you can see the dialogue.

      thanks bro! appreciate it. i know thats kind of a stupid question but ive made a few stupid mistakes before and didnt want to make them again.

      hey another question, when I jailbreak it, is there any further need to have freeze there or can i just delete it with cydelete? (will i ever need "Freeze" again)

      Just like posted above comment. Geohotz said he fixed the issues and its all up to Saruik...?

      Has anyone tried RC2a Windows with Windows 7 64bit?

      What is all changed in RC2a? Geohot said a few things...

      Ye you can delete it using cydelete if you like.

      Personally, i installed sbsettings then when to more>hide icons and just turned freeze off. I have no problem with it being there if i cant see it and if it is ever needed can always switch it back to on and its back there on my springboard.
