  • 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.

      I updated my 2G to 3.0 from 2.2.1 via iTunes 8.2 Joejose. Only issue I had was no YouTube. Hope that helps. And I'm back on 2.2.1 fully unlocked & jailbroken now.

      Yep. I've got a 2G phone mind so not sure if it'll work on a 3G

      The jailbreak method will NOT work on the 3GS people... Jailbreaking uses a hardware exploit in the 1st gen and the 3G. The 3GS is entirely new hardware which Apple would have made sure didn't have the same exploit.

      i know its a little off topic but do you think it will take them as long to jailbreak the 3gs as it did for ipod touch 2g

      At this point there aren't even any guesses as to how long it will take before they find a way to jailbreak the 3GS.

      Lol. Yeah, kinda sucks.. I'm on t-mobile and I've already ordered my 32Gb 3G S, it's gonna get here very soon but I won't get it till July22nd as it was bought for me as a b-day present. However, my contract with t-mobile is up on the 24th of July.. So, we'll see what happens. Haha.

      Next person to use profanity, insult others, or reignite the completely useless first argument receives a permanent ban.

      A couple people are on "vacation" for the remainder of today.

      Ok not sure why or how it worked but here is what I did:

      Finally downloaded 3.0 (servers must have been bogged down)
      Opened iTunes and selected to do a restore
      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?
