  • iPhone 3GS OS 3.1 Pwned? Sorta...
    Well, there's a good news for some but bad for others..



    First of all, the good news is that according to CPICH - an iPhone DevTeam member - DevTeam has successfully upgraded an iPhone 3GS on OS 3.0, pwned previously, to OS 3.1 without loosing the jailbreak! That's a great news for those who have been desperately waiting to upgrade their 3GS but don't want to sacrifice the jailbreak for it.



    However, the solution works ONLY for previously Pwned iPhone 3GS and NOT for the OOTB (out of the box) 3.1 or non-downgradeable ones (in case you didn't capture the iBSS and iBEC files)... This means that if you just bought the device, you're completely out of luck for some more weeks!



    This new exploit will definitely be merged into the PwnageTool, which means no luck for Windows peeps as well.

    P.S. There is no solution for unlocking the new baseband found in OS 3.1 but you can preserve the unlock while updating the iPhone to OS 3.1, once the jailbreak tools are available publicly.

      I'm still waiting to upgrade my iTouch. But whatever, I'm not sure it's even worth it to upgrade considering all I'll really be getting is some extra iTunes crap I don't need.

      Here is a question I was able to jailbreak my iphone 3gs by using some Saurik method to downgrade to 3.0 then I used redsnOw to finish the job and it worked expect I didn't get phone service, wifi worked got to go into cydia see what I have been missing since I upgraded to 3.1 my since I had no phone service I upgraded again to 3.1 with no problem, my question is will I be able to downgrade again, and use the new method once its released or am I out of luck ?

      So the link that shows you how to get the necessary files for the 3.1 says you need iTunes 8.2. Im not sure if I have that itunes or not. Is there a way to get an older version of itunes if I have a more current one?

      Maybe I'm slow...so we 3GS users on 3.0.1 will need to first downgrade (somehow) to 3.0 then use the pwnage tool to install a custom 3.1 firmware?

      Does it make a difference whether I have an ECID thingy on file with Saurik?

      Thanks

      if you have the things on file you an downgrade to 3.0 on a 3gs is my understanding of it and you gotta be on that with it jailbroken in order to use the dev's method. assuming if i understand correctly that jailbreaking is the same as pwned because i used redsnow to jailbreak mine i hope that means i can do it i think i read someone saying that you can it just has to be jailbroken on 3.0

      Does anyone even care anymore? You can essentially do everything with 3.0 and the .ipcc hack that you can do with 3.1.

      Sorry to be lazy, I just don't feel like searching.. But which apps are you excited about, that 3.1 is required?

      Also its confirmed, 3.1 3gs pwnagetools will be released TODAY

      So I'll just ask because I'm dieing to know; is there ever going to be a jailbreak for 3.1 3G for Windows? I'm sooo tired of my stock iPhone. If there is already and I missed it I apologize for being a total tard. If not... any light you can all shed?

      Is there a guide to downgrading to 3.0 if you have saved the iBEC & iBSS files?

      Yeh there is but you must have saved them files through Cydia on Sauriks server!

      Hi all, I have iPhone 3G S 32GB 3.0.1 Jailbreaked, Ultrasn0wed, i want to clear something, i read on Saurik twitter on Sep 20th, The idea of the just released feature is that 3G[S] users of Cydia, running 3.0 (or 3.0.1), can have their 3.1 signatures saved. ;P . So i updated Cydia and i found Heart Icon tab, i clicked it, now my device is being shown in Cydia as This device has ECID SHSH on file,. question is, i did not saved these files before 9th september, i did it on 20th sep after 10 days of 3.1 released. Am i eligible to use the upcoming tools to jailbreak? or is there any technical problem am going to face? replys much appreciated guys, Thanks.

      This looks like they are talking about "greenp0sion" which is the iPod 3g jb. Just thought I saw at one point they said they were focusing on the new iPod first.

      Great. I am SOL from every which way. Have an OTB 3.1 3GS and don't own a Mac.
