  • 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.

      That's fine - I can understand that completely. I'm just up on my soapbox about the folks who would find the answers to their posted questions if they would only read through thread before posting. I mean, how many "When will the 3GS jailbreak be ready?" do we need in one thread?

      I really hope they are able to get the 3GS version out soon, I desperately want the voice control I hope us 3GSers get our JB soon cuz I can't wait to use voice over thru my stereo Bluetooth headset. Thats the only thing I want 3.1 for :P

      According to Musclenerd's twitter response:

      "@MrWalkman yeah that is "normal" for unlocked 3G at 3.1. Not sure why yet..but what's important is the bars are there "

      Do a little research before you blindly say things.

      To all the people asking for a windows version of pwnage tool : You'll be waiting a very very long time. Dev team has never released pwnage tool for windows, it's always been mac only. There used to be a program called winpwn, developed by a 3rd party but he stopped development on that years ago. The only option windows users have is to download a ipsw file which a mac user has kindly generated for you

      Actaually, Dev Team has had redsn0w out for awhile that allows you to PWN on a Windows machine.

      redsn0w is an easy to use, multi-platform, multi-device jailbreaking and unlocking tool for the iPhone 2G (original iPhone), the iPhone 3G/3GS and also the iPod touch (first and second generation). It is available for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. Dev-Team Blog - redsn0w in june

      You just have to wait for redsn0w to be updated for 3.1, or find a IPSW on bit torrent...

      You really think anybody here knows with the exception of a mod or two who isn't going to give a date anyways? If dev says they are working on it, then they are working on it. I don't understand why everybody wants 3.1 so bad anyways...voice command over bluetooth? Thats worth losing free tethering? I don't think so....

      Yes they did but redsn0w and pwnagetool are 2 different utilities. I said that have never released pwnage tool on the windows platform. Redsn0w won't preserve the old baseband which pwnage tool does. It just does a straight forward jailbreak. If you're not bothered about the unlock on 3.1 and just want to JB then yes, redsn0w is for you.

      If you want to generate your own ipsw files in pwnage then just run osx as a virtual machine on windows. Thats what i do ! Works great
