  • iPhone 3GS Unlocked!


    This is kind of old news - but I realized a lot of folks may not have put two and two together.

    ultrasn0w has been out for a while, and has always been known to work on the 3GS "as soon as it was jailbroken" so it could be installed - how could you install it without a jailbreak.

    And now, purplera1n has jailbroken the 3GS for both Windows and OS X users.

    So how do you unlock?

    Easy - jailbreak from either Windows or OS X, then install ultrasn0w. Done.

      i used the mac JB and ultrasn0w unlock, and yes, it's a touch buggy but i'm also using my original supersim from my very first unlock on the first phone. it's flawless on a 2g but just slightly on a 3 but after removing the sim and resetting the network settings all is well. also, i wasn't going to do this until the dev team release due to the winterboard app (my fav app) but i took an hour and themed via ssh. basic but effective until winterboard is released

      oh, i couldn't find where the settings app was so that was the only icon i didn't chnage but as you can see reflective dock works fine. the actual dock substitution works fine. and all the native apps work fine with the bastardized icons.

      where is that settings icon located?

      The application for theming on the iPhone is Winterboard. Currently it doesn't work with 3.0, but from following Geohot and Saurik (the creator)'s Twitter accounts it looks like an upgrade is close to being completed so we can use it on 3.0.

      Yup. 3.1 changes everything. Baseband upgrade means restoring will not do anything for you. Congrats on not listening to the community warning you against upgrading to 3.1.

      That's actually inaccurate. Winterboard works great on 3.0. It's the 3GS that it has problems on.

      this would be great but the vm_map patch still does not play too nicely with the phone. it has been said to cause wifi crashing and all sorts of other issues.

      EDIT: yeah sry a little late... i didnt read any of the posts before i said that. anyway... its better to wait for dev team releases because they do in fact work it through until it is 90% functional.

      I got the 3g-s last week (didn't JB). Now i downloaded a few games (assain creed, fieldrunners...) and i got this message for all games i synced to my iphone:


      So i thought the games not support for firmware 3.0 but then i downloaded the game "Castle" (3.0 compatible) and still get that problem o.O
      I guess i need to jailbreak my iphone (but the games is from appstore) or using somthing call SSH???

      T*** for reading guyz

      That would be piracy, downloading these games (apps) from forums and trying to install it through ssh or whatever method you have used. modmyi.com does not encourage piracy obviously, kindly take down your post and find a more like minded group to discuss your problems with.
