  • 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.

      golden rule #3 >press< ALT OPTION RESTORE/select custom ipsw created by PWN tool.....

      this simple method ''-slipped-'' my mind on first go ahead with PWN tool...but is crucial in the jailbreak process.. i understand there is step by step instructions for dummies like me...(now) however that was after your post and after i allready initiated first restore...and i only found out by reading deep into page 3 and found someone ask the question....just a royal pain is all...still thanks for the update on this exploit..

      The only way you will be able to jailbreak is to use a custom firmware made by PwnageTool (Mac Only). Nobody here will upload the firmware to this site because it is illegal to do so (copyrighted material). You will either have to find the custom firmware somewhere else or wait for an updated redsn0w.
      Can somebody PLEASE drop me a line here to see if you can please email me a firmware made by PwnageTool 3.1 (and 3.0.1)??

      I'd so much appreciate it...

      THANKS MUCH everyone.

      Anyways, haven't seen if this was mentioned yet, and this is more of a question directed towards the mods and devs:

      Do you think it would be more prudent to hold off on Jailbreaking if in fact 3.1.1 is coming out, as they say on or around the 25th of September?

      I just don't see the point to jailbreaking, updating and then jailbreaking again. Of course if 3.1.1 isn't coming out for sometime now then the question is irrelevant...

      thanks guys and great job as alway!

      Hey windows guys
      my nefew just called me up and told me he just jailbroke his 3g with redsnow and everything is working fine.
      He knows he can't change from AT&T to another carrier because he is on famaly plan with his dad ( my brother) so he dident mind doing it. Iam at work and do not have the phone in my hands to con firm but the kid is 13 yes old and well is not known to call me to tell me a lie.

      I think this is good news for thoes who don't plan on going to another carrier or selling the phone for a while

      when I can I will check out his phone and confirm but it won't be till the weekend cause he is at school during the day and I go to work before he gets out

      I forgot to mention he is on 3.1 ,I saw his phone this weekend rinning the os

      Redsn0w for 3.1 isn't out yet.
      I think he's on an older firmware.
      3.0.1 maybe

      Did you get it yet? I'd be glad to help you out.

      The JB worked for me but the fact is- this has done nothing for me at all. installing Winterboard sends Springboard into Safe Mode so basically Theme modding is out. Tethering is gone. Basic 3G functiomality has slowed to a crawl. Only barebones Cydia functionality and the Itunes 9 cosmetic updates are what i get out of this update. Ive lost so much more- ugh! Why didn't anyone call this out??
      ^ You need to update your stuffs. WB works after updating MS
