  • WinterBoard Released for iPhone 3GS

    You may have noticed - WinterBoard wasn't working on the iPhone 3GS.

    Well guess what? It is now.

    Open up Cydia, and download away... everything is working spot on.

    Thanks, Saurik.

      Okay the first time I did this I installed MobileSubstrate, resprang, then installed Winterboard. It locked up on boot.

      I did a DFU restore. Purplera1n RC2. Installed Cydia. Installed MobileSubstrate. Rebooted. Installed Winterboard. Success.

      I don't know why the second time worked when the first didn't...

      Winterboard has absolutely nothing to do with the Dev Team...Thank Saurik

      Dialer themes, battery themes, and dialer themes DO work.
      -Sms bubbles will work, just change the folder containing the bubbles to ChatKit.framework(So far no luck for background, spoke to SB and we cant find the file for it either)
      -Keyboard themes will not work until Saurik changes the way the keyboard is injected
      -Dialer themes and Battery Themes WILL WORK but need to be manually SSHed into the phone in the proper directories. Will take a little time but they will all take.

      Edit: I dont know why but I thought your post said "dialer themes DO NOT work".

      After installing, I had to reinstall my university's wireless profile, but that wasn't a big deal. Other than that, everything is good to go!

      WHY ID I HAVE TO UPGRADE TO 3.1. I'm missing out on all the fun. DEV TEAM PLEASE JB 3.1!!

      I miss winterboard themes. STICKERS Rocks!!

      I am hoping to trick Apple to help me restore to 3.0 at the store.

      My phone got stuck on the Apple logo and freaked me out. I pressed the home and power buttons to force a restart and it booted up perfectly after. WOOOO SAURIK!

      kudos to Saurik on a quick fix for Winterboard on the 3GS. works lovely on my phone.

      has anyone else noticed that the status bar has grown a few pixels taller?! not a problem, just wondering.

      So since everything is working properly does SBSettings still freeze during the installation on a 3G?

      Anyone using vista 32bit home having trouble? I restored the other day before rc2 and now I can't install freeze. It does the whole process like before but after the reboot freeze is not installed. Has the steps to install changed?

      It already does, Apple underclocked it. I too would like to see a hack for this!

      how do i get that mail icon on the top right of the phone next to the battery percentage...is that for mail or sms? is it only for 3gs or is there a work around to get it on the 3g as well (like the battery percentage hack)

      This is exciting! So is there still a lot of bugs that need to be fixed or is jb for the 3gs set for now (except on 3.1)? I see a lot of people are still having problems installing it and such... is it that common or are they just messin up :P.
      i'm glad WB is fixed, all i really want to do though is play FF7 on psx4iphone... doin that tonight!!! it's like an early bday present to me from the dev-team (tomorrow is my bday haha).
