  • iPhone OS 3.1 Jailbroken, NOT for iPhone 3GS

    Finally, days after the release of OS 3.1, DevTeam has released the essential tools for jailbreaking it! However, The new version of PwnageTool works with iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G and iPod Touch 1G ONLY which is a sad news for the iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 2G users as well as those who just bought a shiny new iPod Touch 3G...

    The iPod Touch 2G users are however luckier than the iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G ones as the tool for it is almost ready unlike the other two.

    Here are some golden rules before you attempt using this new tool!

    1. GOLDEN RULE: If you are using a 3G iPhone with ultrasn0w and rely on ultrasn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should only upgrade to 3.1 with a PwnageTool created .ipsw. - Stay away from Apple’s direct updates as described here and here please get up to speed on the whole subject by reading the information contained in these posts.
    2. If you have an original iPhone (1st generation) then 3.1 unlock works with this PwnageTool release. 3G users will need to continue using ultrasn0w with a PwnageTool created .ipsw
    3. Please read all parts of this post before downloading and using these tools.
    4. Read items 1, 2 and 3 again and again.
    5. At the bottom of this post are the bittorrent files for the 3.1 capable version of PwnageTool.
    6. This app is suitable for the recent 3.1 release.
    7. This version of PwnageTool will NOT work for the iPhone 3GS.
    8. PwnageTool WILL work for Original iPhone (1st Generation), Original iPod touch (1st Generation) and the iPhone 3G.

      You know I was thinking if this FW update works like all the others you can have a phone with custom carrier such as one made with Make It Mine, and other jailbroken settings and some of them will still show in official FW if you restore from backup after the upgrade. It obviously won't jailbreak you or anything else, but I remember doing several FW upgrades and still having custom carriers and such by restoring from backup when upgrading.

      My second thought on this was that perhaps a jailbreak can be achieved for the 3GS through the restore from backup file. The FW is already activated, and this file is perfectly willing to insert information and code into the phone after activating it while restoring it.

      Unfortunately there are very few things retained in the backup - custom carrier logos being one of them - but not JB.

      Hi for everyone. I need Your advice. I'm on 3.0.1 redsn0wed with my 2G(thanks confucious and angiepangie). Really I'm happy, just few things isn't cool (wifi connecting delay and battery draining 20% quicker as it was before). Is something better in 3.1. Is it possible to jailbreak and unlock 3.1 with windows (I'd find just with MAC), is it trustable? What about app. Will same app work in 3.1 are working in 3.0.1? Thanks in advance for Your comments.

      I just unlocked and jailbroke a 3g iphone that has never been unlocked or jailbroken. Does that mean the baseband was intact? I have been unlocking iphones for people for two years now and this is my first post also my first 3g un/jb.

      Presumably you got pwnage from the download link at the top of this page? Where you will also find the ipsw.

      But it goes straight to downloading pwnage3.1 there's no option to save anything. I think I am missing the point, sorry, please help.

      That link takes you to the FW downloads - not to pwnage...

      If you used the 1,2 ipsw it is for the 3G not the 3GS. If you used 2,1 it is for the 3GS not 3G.
