    • 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!

I snapped a picture, it made the "camera taking picture sound" but no image was available for review. I have not been keeping up with what apps work through cydia but these two appear so far not to be working correctly for me. We will see after attempt #2.
      Update#3: Successfully jailbroke my 3GS on AT&T. I have not attempted to install Snapature or iRealSMS yet but I was able to install Open SSH with no problem and I began to manually skin my phone's images and sounds (for starters I changed the tock sound to the old school typewriter sound, I would do more tonight but it is late and I am tired). So based on my experience tonight, the Purplera1n method worked for me with no problems. BTW, I used my HP Vista (with SP1) to achieve the jailbreak and I used my MBP to backup everything, so it worked and maintained everything across both computer systems.

      Got it to work on mine using vista home on my second try. First it stayed locked up in the logo. Then I did a hard reboot and ran it again. Second time iTunes turned on and as soon as I closed iTunes it finished. Now I wish all other apps worked. Anything that has to do with reloading srpingboard it will boot up in safe mode.

      Here's what my purplera1n log looks like, any suggestions? I X'd out my serial number and imei of course. lol

      It opens up the image of purplera1n but never does anything else. It makes the disconnect noise and then just sits on the image.....



      Guess I'm going to restore, no time before work again. Don't wanna go to work without my phone again.

      Tricker ThreeG has crashed Sling both times I've installed it (RC1 and RC2) -- so apparently work still has to be done.

      This is why we have an ignore list on this forum. I can't believe people who make posts like this will ever have anything useful to post anyway.

      Had zero trouble with mine. I'm running Windows 7 RC1 build 7000 on my Macbook Pro. Had to kill purplerain once during the waiting for phone part, all I did was kill the program and then restart it and it was done in about 30 seconds. Works awesome, good call quality, wifi still works, and it's not unlocked. Cydia FLIES on this thing as does Dock.

      I've only changed a few icons like the sliders, some sounds and the bands on the top and bottom of the lockscreen. Can't get the top one to disappear. I've been using PhoneView to change my sounds an images and it works flawlessly.
