  • 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.

      At least let us jailbreak. The iphone is completely useless now because some people accidently upgraded their iphones to 3.0. Thanks to itunes. Letting us jailbreak will save our phone halfway.

      People didn't accidentally upgrade their iphone, they were just to impatient to wait for the dev team. They deserve to have their iphone being a brick right now. The dev team are not gods. Everyone just needs to be patient and let them do what they need to do. Without them we wouldn't have jailbreaks and unlocks. people need to be more appreciatitive.

      Don't forget to hit the thanks box for me....

      Glad to see we are back on topic now that everyone got that "first" crap out of the way.

      I traded a guy my 1G for his 3G b/c he wanted it to work with T-mobile. The BB was 5.9 so no go on the 3G. So now I am excited to finally be able to use the 3G with T-mobile.

      Thanks again Dev-Team and Oranav for finding the hole for Ultrasn0w.

      take your time, boys. we'd rather you get it right after a few extra days rather than it be messed up tomorrow, you know?

      we appreciate the time and effort.

      i don't understand why the Dev-Team is holding back ultra snow til friday. if there worried about apple finding out what the exploit is whats the difference the 3GS has already bin shipped to whoever preordered them and i doubt there gonna update every 3GS thats in the store already. Why wait til friday?!

      Just be patient and have some faith in the Devs. They know what they are doing. There are most likely some bugs that need to be worked out before they release. I think you would all much rather wait a few days for them to get it right rather then be in the same situation we all were in with Yellowsn0w when it was first released...

      I wont thank you. I want to let you know that i accidently upgraded my iphone to 3.0 because when I plug in to my comp and I always press enter for carrier update and ignore it. It was a accidently.

      personally I don't mind waiting for the jailbreak, i don't need pdanet anymore since 3.0 can do tethering, copy & paste, mms, etc! the only thing I would need in the jailbreak is the use of the Flashlight app, mxtube, cyrecorder, and 5 icons dock!

      why cant we have the jailbreak if we are not 'hacktivated' or do not use youtube? This seems unfair. I do not understand why the dev team makes us wait like this, they had the main jailbreak done weeks ago (i understand until update, so apple dosent fix it, but for some silly feature effecting a minority?)

      i cant wait! but something weird is that 3.0 was supposed to a video camera & mms wasnt it? but mine doesnt have either of those? lol

      yeah like everyone else i rather wait to have it all fixed at once than to jailbreak it now and then once the new and fully fixed version comes out, do it again...

      and as for waiting till friday for ultrasn0w you should go watch the last minute of the video back again...

      GO DEV-TEAM!
