  • 3.0 Jailbreak - PwnageTool Status Report


    The official 3.0 jailbreak release is pretty much ready, and I know you're all wondering "so when can I get it?"

    Just a quick status update the Dev Team posted this morning:

    Update 2 (Thursday morning):
    • We have two issues that we’ve been trying to resolve:
    • There are new 3.0 complications with YouTube.app if you’re on a hacktivated (unofficially activated) device
    • There’s a bug in Apple’s new version of asr that our custom IPSW’s are tickling and causing crashes on, on some devices. (For the nerdy or curious among us, the details of that bug were tweeted by planetbeing a month ago.)
    • As of Thursday morning we now have a workaround for #2. For #1, we’ll try our best to get it fixed but we may end up releasing a preliminary jailbreak in which YouTube doesn’t work for hacktivated devices, and then follow that up with a more complete jailbreak when we can.
    That pretty much sums it up. We'll let you know as soon as its ready - you can also follow MuscleNerd on Twitter to stay current.

      The video feature will only work on 3gS...MMS will work on 3.0 but not on AT&T for the time being. Once jailbreak is released just download Cycorder from Cydia.

      As much as I want a Zero hour Jailbreak, Im glad the "Dev-Team" does there due-diligence. but would agree with most, release the working jailbreak for those of us that do not unlock - NOW! I cant stand missing my Intelliscreen, MyProfiles, and Tlert!!!

      And I believe MMS only works on 3G and 3Gs, correct me if I'm wrong.

      Although obviously the 2G is capable of mms, as we've seen with Swirly. Oh well.

Why wait til friday?!
      For thoes that have been here since the beginning will appreciate the dev teams wait. Here is how it normally goes...

      #1
      "Hurry for the free program what are you waiting on gosh!!!"
      ---hmmm yup people B!t(H about free as well...
      #2
      "WTH DEV this product sucks it Bricked my phone!!! help"
      ---People cannot wait or... cant read!!!
      #3
      "HELP my iPhone updated to the new FW and Its useless on my other than ATT contract!!!"
      ---People do not READ and or Wait... Now they want an immediate fix!

      So trust me whan I say... Let the dev team iron out the issues no matter how minor. It will save alot of bandwith and server space in the long run. Lastly Even when it is out you will see there will be idiots outthere that --DONT READ instructions-- And demand an immediate fix... or curse out the dev's... Heck just read the posts on this string...1st really???WTH?? And of course thoes that feel the need to post against them in a futile attempt to...hmmm well perhaps to act like a bad ***** or something...

      Nuff said... Now... as soon as it comes out... PEOPLE PLease READ the instructions..

      D-out

      Restore back to your prev firmware and re-jailbreak... Problem solved... Next disable the auto update in iTunes and you will not have to worry about the mistake again. Hope this helps...

      I heard about that also. I can prove that dont work on OS 3.0 and only work on 3.0 Beta. I tried doing it yesterday and failed. I kept doing research and found out that method work only on 3.0 betas and not OS 3.0. Thank you.

      "The official 3.0 jailbreak release" that was quoted from the update post.

      since when was this official? just because it's from the Dev Team doesn't mean that it's official.

      don't get me wrong, i love the dev team and their work, but just pointing something out here. it seems that we have come to think of work from the Dev Team as the standard of jailbreaking...

      not that anything we're doing here is official anyways

      official does not mean apple.

      Will there be instructions on how to? I currently have a jail broken 3g.

      Do I take the 3.0 update then re jailbreak then ultrasn0w? Can someone provide the steps to take.

      Thanks

      Also I agree Leave the dev-team alone let them work. I have an idea the dev team should add a random number to there projected date and then release it when they planed too. Say ultraSnow will be ava 6/22 but release it 6/19 then everyone will cheer. They will become miracle workers just like Scotty.

      These are the steps I am taking:
      1. Restore iPhone to firmware 2.2.1
      2. Then Restore(not update) firmware to 3.0
      3. Jailbreak
      4. Unlock using Untrasn0w

      Hope this helps....

      This thread is about the jailbreak or I it about children posting crap? Seriously if someone tells u that they don't like it when u pos "first" y are u just gonna fuel him more with a reply? I would just keep it moving and ignore him instead if continuing like a child....really....anyway, I hope the jailbreak works on my 3Gs , it's activated and ready for his jailbreak! I live the easy to clean screen!

      Hi JoeJose

      Do not upgrade yet the way i believe it is going the jailbreak may be out soon but the unlock will not come out until later and you would not be able to use it.
