  • [3GS] iBoot-359.3.2 - No 24kpwn! Apple Actively Working Against Jailbreaks
    chainsaws problem


    Edit Poseidon: Well guys... Apple finally patched the exploit in the bootrom that has been allowing redsn0w and pwnage tool to work. There are now new 3GS iPhone in the wild that have a new version of iBoot that will not be jailbreakable until a new exploit is found! Better hurry up and buy em while you can... may not last long.

    "oh oh, from what @cpich3g + @Mathieulh have found so far, a normal untethered JB may be in jeopardy in brand new 3GS units" - MuscleNerd
    hurry purchase old 3GS asap before new1 hits the shelves.

We're going to make a new type of jailbreak called 128kPwn then shove the new 3GS build down your throats. Give up.
      You use the word "WE" like you had anything to do with the jailbreak or any software development. You are better off just not posting.

      So, I just purchased a 3G S last week.. I guess I should check to see what verison of iBoot I have? Or, will blackra1n still work on phones sold last week?

      I am trying to get a few unauthorized (3rd Party) apps on my phone, I am assuming you cannot use iTunes for this?

      Truth!!! Whenever an iPhone user sees me on mine they're always like "oh man how'd u do that" then I show them picture messaging and they continue to gawk. I tell them about jailbreaking and boom we've grown that much stronger. U got the right idea lamar, keep it goin.

There was no contract that ways we cannot use the phone at our own risk. If we break it and we want a new one that's our responsibility not for apple. They are so stupid. Example when someone buys a Mazda rx8 Mazda didn't tell them you cannot modify your car etc etc. By adding more speed a a turbo system. Put the turn and jailbreak as the samething. Turbo brings more power jailbreak takes the iPhone to a whole new world in stuff apple has never created. But other smart developers who are thinking more than apple did.

      Well Apple you all created a product saying it's first phonethat cannot be unlocked. Geohot gave you all a surprise and what was your response. Nothing than blah blah jailbreak must e banned. Go donate apple money and help the economy and stop talking all this crap.

      And don't try a lawsuit because that's all your good for. But customers has a right to leave their though and reviews.

      So hacking team 2009 and beyond we shall be hacking deeply into the iPhones and iPods. And iPhones are man made so there will always be a way it just takes knowlede and time.

      Peace. God Bless You All.

      Patience is a virtue. You guys need to take a chill pill.

      An exploit will come. If it doesn't, ah well. The iPhone is still a great phone without jailbreak. If you don't think so go grab a RAZR, you can still root that >_>

      i didn't see it posted anywhere in the thread but how do you check which version boot a 3gs has?

      [/noob question]

      -Luke

      EDIT: just saw this posted in the other thread related to this topic:

      "To determine if your new 3GS is running the new bootrom, just check System Profiler while the phone is in DFU mode. Versions of iBoot prior to 359.3.2 should still be able to be jailbroken using known methods."

      For what it's worth...

      Geohot's blackra1n site mentioned that it was not working on "MC" models. The context seemed to be "MC" touch models, but I believe it applies to 3GS models as well. My 3GS purchased on release day is an "MC1377LL" and I am unable to pwn or blackra1n it.

      It was JB on v3.0. At one point I was having performance problems and I reverted to non-JB v3.0. Subsequently, I upgraded to v3.1 and realized the doom I created for myself since I had not saved codes previously on Cydia. Recently updated to 3.1.2 as part of blackra1n method and found it not working. Tried pwnagetool and have the perpetual 1604 / 1600 errors.

      So it seems "MC" model prefix is the kiss of death for JB...

      Fortunately, the 24k exploit is in the bootrom - if it had indeed been fixed, it would have prevented you from jailbreaking 3.0. I'm guessing it's just a compatibility issue.

      ATT will usually allow you to renew early and get the subsidized price without actually waiting for the official renewal date. This might be a good idea if you want to make sure you get a jail breakable phone.

      Good observation Watson (Cloudhunter )....

      After scouting around, I checked out my iboot and noted it was a JB compat version (359.3). So, to hopefully be of help to others here was what I tried based on a comment thread I read on devteam (courtesy jeffrush / sand0s):

      Situation:
      - 1604 error trying to load custom firmware created via pwnagetool 3.1.4 while in normal or recovery mode
      - 1600 error trying to load same while in DFU mode
      - blackra1n (Windows) would kick phone into recovery mode and sit there for 1+ min "running". Comes to the "you have been jailbroken, wait for reboot". Problem, no geohot image. Error log shows errors loading files to phone.
      - Tried all of above with and without a USB hub (as I remember in past something about USB issues on Mac which where solved using a hub) .. no luck

      Cause (for me):
      - VMWare Fusion!!! Running Fusion on Mac with Vista 32bit. Tried as well with Fusion on Mac with Win 7 32 bit. Both cases same result.

      Solution (for me):
      - blackra1n for MAC!!!! Ran this and it finally worked as simple as many have bragged about. After this, I was able to restore custom firmware via iTunes piece of cake!

      ~4 hours of lost life on this one
      ~jailbroken again

      I bought a 3Gs this weekend. It has the 3.1.2 firmware and is the MB (NOT MC) model.
      No joy with blackra1n!
      I'm crestfallen!!!!

      Well, in a previous posting I had drawn the conclusion that 3GS models starting with MC related to the jailbreak issue. Based on my above post, that can't be true - since I have an MC model and was able to jailbreak. In my case, it appears to be related to running Windows under VMWare.

      Perhaps someone with more experience can clarify if the model has any bearing whatsoever, or if it is only related to the iboot version. If I recall, the devteam site noted a known issue with IPT3 models beginning with MC - perhaps they've clarified to issue to be iboot related and not model prefix.

      Cheers
