  • 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.

      @kuhndsn

      You don't have iTunes on your list (I think). Is it also working under 3.0? Thanks.

      took about 10min and whala I am on 3.0 and still unlocked/Jailbroken.

      Iphone used was NOT my 3g but my 1st gen 16 gb. This phone is on Vodafone Germany (not a iPhone carrier).

      ---So far no issues...
      - I didnt have visual voice mail before so I cant comment on it now (current carrier Vodafone does not support)
      - Wifi is working fine
      - SMS texting is fine
      - calling is fine
      - phone seems to run alot faster with no lags
      - apps open slightly faster than my 3g
      - the speaker seems to be a little louder
      - MMS works (Vodafone/ALL carriers in Europe support...have been for years now)
      - Push??? no noticable diff in e-mail...
      - Safari does not lagg and cash is working great
      - Landscape/landscape/landscape is everywhere... KEWL!!!
      - copy paste ok
      - paired my MOT stereo BT headset and can "rockout with my cables out" :-)
      - No Compass - its a 2g I believe this function only works on the 3GS

      Has anyone else had the same success?

      If they did it when the GM got leaked the jailbreak would be finished by now as they recon it was. Why is there all of a sudden problems? They've had 2 weeks to get it working and I read it was all good but not going to get released till Apple offically released 3.0 which they did 2 days ago.

      Either they were BS'ing us or someone else was making up lies like usual.
      Even on the dev's blog they said it would be released as soon as apple did so why are we still waiting?

      The dev's now say its finished but having problems with youtube? I never use youtube so I dont care if that works or not. I just want my phone to work. It's a 2G in Aus so I NEED to jailbreak as soon as I upgrade or it doesnt work. It's a brick without the jailbreak.

      hurry up and release the jailbreak so we can all upgrade our phones.

      Jailbreak is whats it's all about, the unlock is secondary and should be treated as such. Otherwise post the limitations/bugs with the unlock and call it a Beta. They are doing a great job no matter what happens, and we will in fact see a Jailbreak soon enough. Maybe they are trying to surprise those who get the 3Gs with a day Zero Jailbreak.

      now all the others complaining was fine and dandy but your post really bothered me

      the dev team is doing all this work for all the iphone users free of charge, if they have the ability to block certain phones from using their jailbreak/unlock then they shouldnt let you enjoy it at all cuz you are attacking them like a very ungrateful person that you are even though they have done a lot of great things for the iphone community

      i have had a 3g for few months now and its sitting in its box since the day i bought it, you dont see me whine and complain, do you ??

      fix your attitude bro

      I dont care what you think so STFU!

      The dev team said it would be released as soon as Apple released 3.0 so they are going back on thier word.
      3.0 is the exact same version that was leaked to devs about 2 weeks ago and back then they said it was all done but they wernt releasing it just in case Apple blocked the holes in it.
      If it was all done then why the wait now?

      Someone is spinning a lot of BS and as its posted on the dev teams blog I think THEY are the ones that are spinning it this time.

      IF I said I was going to do something I would do it not make people wait or BS about it. I say it like it should be said and what others dont want to say.

      So, to end my rant, Dev team said it was done 2 weeks ago. They also said it would be released straight away after Apple released 3.0. They are now taking thier sweet *** time and going back on thier word pissing a lot of people off.
      I dont care if its free. I do a lot of things for free and I dont make people wait. Thats why I get return customers and a lot of work. They get what they want without delays.

      The dev team now said a beta is done but they are still not releasing it for 1 problem with youtube. IF they release it to all the people that dont use youtube or all the 2G people they will be making a lot of people happy. I cant use 3.0 without jailbreak so I am waiting for them so I can upgrade.

      Again I dont care what you think. This is what I think and a lot of the people that they are pissing off are also thinking along these lines.

      I have to agree with spdracr...
      The Devs are working very hard for months to create the jailbreak for 3.0 and Ultrasn0w unlock. Everyone needs to be patient. The Dev Team is holding off on releasing it because it simply has not been finalized to get out all of the bugs. They are waiting to release it, and working very hard I might say, for EVERYONES protection. Would you rather them release the unfinished Jailbreak and have your phone constantly crash and need to restore, all because you are impatient? How about have your phone be permanently locked to AT&T because the soft unlock software, aka UltraSn0w, wasn't finalized and tested several times on the 3.0 software?

      Ask yourself all of these things before you
      A. Complain on here about the Devs not making a release yet
      B. Post on the Dev-Team Blog about how they need to hurry up already!

      I would love to see each of you who are complaining Jailbreak and unlock your iPhones without the help of the Dev Team!!!

      you are a disgrace
      respect the dev team, they put in the hardwork
      they want to fix all problems for all of us
      so be patient, or in other means if u cannot be patient then
      throw the iphone away and get a nokia or similar

      Nakedfaerie thing, why don't you spend more of your concentration on making your own JB/UL rather than moaning about others who are doing it for you????
