  • 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 followed the instructions for jailbreaking, but when I search for ultrasn0w in cydia, it doesn't come up with anything...

      Hi,

      I am a tech-idiot and i really need help on unlocking 3gs. I've reached the stage where I click on Freeze, followed by installing Cydia. Problem is, after I click on it the most progress it made was one small white bar.. The signal was good it is not making a progress. Are there any ways in which I can download it faster?

      You need to be on wifi.

      Would you prefer Purlera1n or redsn0w?

      From what i have read ultrasn0w would be better in the fact that i works on hackivated phones.

      Well it's not that redsn0w "works on hacktivated phones" but rather it actually hacktivates the phone...I personally wont let redsn0w even look at my 3G[s] the wrong way! Grab an At&t sim and activate your phone and then run Purplera1n. I still hear too many complaints about redsn0w on the 3G[s]. And how can you beat the ease and simplicity of purplera1n? You can't!

      what firmware do you use to jailbreak 3GS i just want to make sure so I dont F*** up. Is it 3.0? thanks!

      RedSn0w 0.8 Will JB 3.01 but you need to use the FW 3.0 ipsw
      RedSn0w 0.9 for 3.12 is being tested.
