  • 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!

      for whatever reason, cydia just crashes back to the home screen all the time. I'm so close, anyone else having this?

      Its APN not VPN. They are two different things. APN probably isn't showing up under Settings --> Network so use SBSettings to turn 3G and Edge off. Yes, you will still be able to call and get signal with those off. 3G and Edge are the data parts of your signal.

      RC2 worked for me where RC1 didn't. I had the issue where my phone was just sitting at the "connect to itunes" logo but I just quit purplera1n and restarted it and then it completed without any more problems. Thanks Geohot!

      Has anyone had any issues with paid apps crashing now? Crystal Defender (yes I am referring to a paid app off AppStore not a cracked version of it) crashes for me every time after I try and select a difficulty.

      First one ran fine for me on vista x64 after a bit of troubleshooting, and the new version worked without any troubleshooting. Now we just need winterboard patched and I'll be set.

      I redid mine from RC1 and didn't get it? Everything went through and it rebooted.
