  • [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.

    "yay! new 3gs bootrom apparently kills 24kpwn." - cpich3g
    "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.

      Ok lol this is so funny. Are you guys serious ******** at apple?
      first of all we all know that 75% of jailbreakers also install ********** so they can "TEST" apps (lol). Apple is fighting against piracy i don't think they care to much about themes and apps that change the carrier name.

      i have had a iphone for 2 years. i got the 3gs the day it was released i have about 40 apps i am currently "TESTING" which i installed from **********. 40 apps at 5$ a app means 200$ apple didn't get. is it right? no its not only normal they try to stop it. The real issue is piracy not anything else. it is only normal apple who tries to give customers a great final product control what goes into an iphone. If you people think android is so much better go try it....you will be disappointed. i had a n95 before my iphone and allthough i could do anything to it in terms of mods almost anyhting that went into it was ****** because there was no quality control.

      the iphone is an awsome phone , gadget and if i cant jailbreak anynore it would be ****** but i cant blame apple and if they manage to keep us from jailbreaking ill still keep my iphone and buy 10 apps instead of having 40. the ps3 isnt hacked yet i still have one its great product bottom line dont be hypocrites because apple doesnt need you to be succesfull

      lkailburn, Keep your 3G for backup, I did. I just turned in a 3GS that was dropping calls. Phone was jailbroken and unlocked, but I restored it to OS 3.1.2 stock. Then I tried to jailbreak and it would not work. So when I turned it in to the Apple store, they replaced it with new phone with OS 3.01 which I promtly took home and jailbroke!

      dumbest statement of the year. something like 10% of iphone users actually jailbreak.. even less now that the appstore is around.

      We can now confirm that the new 8GB iPod touch is not vulnerable to 24Kpwn. It took just 6 bytes for Apple to fix this:

      Code:
      load_module+16   43 68    LDR  R3, [R0,#bdevImg.totalSize]
      load_module+18   9A 42    CMP  bufsize, R3
      load_module+1A   13 D3    BCC  FAIL
      Code:
      find_named_image(illb): 000100d8  00024100  696c6c62 696d6733 
                              dataSize  totalSize illb     img3
      Given how small the fix is, it seems likely that it was also applied to that updated bootrom of very recent iPhone 3GS devices. We'll be able to confirm this once we have an actual one of those in hand.


      Update #2 10/17/2009

      Confirmation that the new 8GB iPod touch is at least a tethered jailbreak. This device doesn't require personalized img3 files in the way that the iPhone 3GS and iPod touch 3G do. For this reason, it will “always” be jailbreakable (no need to rush and get your ECID signed hashes like you do for the 3GS and ipt3G). But for the foreseeable future, it will be a tethered jailbreak only.

      Just because the serial says week 40 it doesn't mean it's no good. My friend bought one at the exact time as me and hers was week 40 and it JB'd no problem, mine was week 41 and had the new bootloader. This was just 5 days ago

      Like I said - very unlucky, the new BL was introduced in week 40, some with week 40 have it, some don't. If it was manufactured before week 40 it has the old BL, after week 40 the new one. In week 40 it is impossible to tell (just like 5.9 in week 828).

      I'm not sure who you were replying to before because there was no quote
      Do we know for sure that Avalanche7575 has the new bootloader? All I know is he has a week 40 phone and he couldn't get blackra1n to work. Many people with jailbreakable phones have not been able to get blackra1n working for whatever reason. He needs to put the phone in DFU and check it in System Profiler to be sure. Blackra1n and Pwnagetool actually ran fine on my week 41, but it never reboots, just stays with a black screen.

      That doesn't say anything about iBoot-359.3.2. Unless he checks in System Profiler I'm not convinced

      My stupidity astounds me at times. Three times I read FW 3.12 as iBoot 359.3.2
      I really should read what's written not just what I think it says...
      D'Oh!
