    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.

      I have a problem that maybe someone here can help me with.
      I had a jailbroken 3Gs phone with AT&T running well, when all of a sudden, I got a network error. It then said I had to restore through iTunes. When I tried to restore it kept giving me an error. I tried putting it on DFU mode, but still won't restore.
      Does anyone have any suggestions?
      Thanks in advance

      I'm using iTunes 8.2
      The first error before putting it on DFU mode is no Sim card inserted. Then after putting in DFU mode, it errors out with error 23. This pops up during the part when it says its contacting apple.
      The weird thing is if I restart from DFU mode, the phone goes to restore mode, but I can see my intelliscreen over it. Also I can change "My profiles" profiles via my volume buttons.

      I was wondering if there is a list of what works with PurpleRa1n rc2.

      Also I have read that winterboard and other apps will not work and it has something to do with kernel patches. So I was wondering if you JB using PurpleRa1n rc2 when the patches become available will there be an easy fix or will it be a new JB (rc3) and you start over ?

      For me there is confusion reading some of the comments here and on Saurik's twitter page ("The code signature related errors you are seeing with PurpleRa1n are a different, unrelated, problem with its kernel patches").

      And why hasn't the Dev Team released their JB ?

      Basically I'm trying to sort out if I JB now using PurpleRa1n when fix/patches come out will
      I be able to apply them or is this going to turn into competing JB using incompatible methods.

      why did we do the capture iBEC and iBSS exercise as it doesn't sem to be needed for this JB.

      I apologize in advance for the folks that are going to flame me and will point to a sentence here or quote there but these are usually wrapped in an "you already know what we are talking about" secret code kind of discussion.

      Thanks

      There would be no way to accidentally restore to 3.1 but nonetheless
      I'm in the same boat. Is there a way to downgrade back to 3.0? I don't care
      about the baseband for unlock. Thanks for any help.

      try this.. http://www.modmyi.com/forums/general...3-1-3-0-a.html

      In the link above it says to use redsn0w to jailbreak. If you have a 3GS use purplera1n instead. Good luck!

      The problems / updates with purplera1n can be put onto your iPhone by simply downloading the latest purplera1n and running it again. This takes about 20 seconds and then reboots. No restoring, nothing else, simple as. Because saurik (Cydia) and geohot/chronic dev do not work directly with eachother there was going to be a time gap between geohots jailbreak and an updated kernel etc etc. Winterboard seems to be working now with todays update and mobilesubstrate has been updated aswell so ive got some testing out myself to do.

      The dev team have now released their jailbreak for the 3GS:

      MuscleNerd (MuscleNerd) on Twitter

      We need to capture the iBEC + iBSS because the 3GS is different from every iphone before it. Each time the phone is restored it gets signed by its unique codes (iBEC + iBSS). this is a new thing that hasnt needed to be looked at before, like a new security loophole for apple.

      The dev-team(s) believe that by obtaining your files now, you can use them to sign future firmwares (think pwnage tool) and become jailbroken at 3.1, then 3.2 etc etc. I believe this is a kind of bug in the 3.0 firmware and as soon as 3.1 comes out noone will be able to generate their iBEC or iBSS files, and all phones coming with 3.1 preloaded will have to wait X number of weeks for a brand new jailbreak.

      Sorry its a bit scatty, i just write what i think. Hope it helps

      i did look at that.. the way they say to use quickpwn, it doesnt work for me because after i restore it and get the error in itunes and open up quickpwn, it doesnt detect my phone.... should i try the method he said to uninstall itunes 8.2 and reinstall 8.1.1 and stuff? cuz idk if i shud waste my time on it...

      Jailbroke last night using purplerain, worked like a charm no issues.
      I have winterboard, categories, wifi, app store, and a few others. Only thing I found that crashes is stacks.

      iPhone 3GS 3.0 with Mac OSX 10.5.7

      Install went well - Freeze worked - got Cydia

      Installed some sources - installed the package "All Sources" by SteffWiz, which is just a bunch of trusted sources.

      Installed SBSettings, installed Cydelete

      Once I installed Intelliscreen, things went way wrong - I installed the cr@ck3d Intelliscreen from Xsellize - after reboot, Springboard came back up and it was fluttering and flickering and dancing all over the place - the weirdest thing. I hit the sleep button, then hit it again, slide to unlock and it was back to normal.

      Uninstalled Freeze and uninstalled Intelliscreen

      THEN - I couldn't get the "phone" application to work after that - you know, the green "Phone" icon we use to launch dialpad, voicemail, recent calls, favorite contacts, really important stuff? When I would press the green phone button it would act like it wanted to launch, but would then just crash and go right back to Springboard.

      Tried re-spring, soft reset, reboot, power down, nothing worked.

      Re-installed official 3.0 - but I had to go DFU to get it to take.

      So, maybe I will try Redsn0w...

      EDIT: Maybe part of the problem is that I tried to install the cr@ck3d Intelliscreen without having the mobileinstallationpatch installed - does anyone know if the MI patch 3.0 works for 3GS? I haven't heard anything about it anywhere...maybe because it's t@b00...?
