  • 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.

      why don't we all wait and let the DEV Team do what they need to do. i'm quite sure it's not just as simple as the youtube.app not working because they could just release and fix the youtube app later.

      so BIG THANKS to them!

      So these iPhone 3g are still worth their weight due to the fact they can be jailbroken and unlocked where as the 3gs can not!

      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?
      Wait wait wait.......SO WOULD IT BE BETTER FOR ME TO WAIT? BECAUSE IM JAILBROKEN AND UNLOCKED ON 2.2.1 2G IPHONE? SOMEBODY HELP ME OUT PLZ? ICLARIFIED SAID SOMETHING ABOUT 2G IPHONES CAN UPDATE TO 3.0 THRU ITUNES AND NOT LOSE JAILBROKEN-NESS AND UNLOCK?

      Very mature of you both. I think everyone is eagerly awaiting the release of the 3.0 Jailbreak and Ultrasn0w, probably even both of you...

      Hacktivated means that your iPhone is running another carrier like t-mobile so it can't be legally activated it has to skip activation so its "hacktivated".

      The YouTube bug will not effect anyone using AT&T. :P

      Ok went through all seven pages of this thread and I believe this question hasn't been asked, if I am on just a jailbroken 3G (firmware 2.2.1, not hacktivated) will it be fine if I upgrade to 3.0 using the regular iTunes upgrade and not lose the ability to jailbreak 3.0 later? Or is this something not known yet?

      It will be okay for you to upgrade to 3.0....And join the rest of us waiting for the J/B to be released. But if your phone is unlocked then just hold off in till the ultrasnow gets released.

      I believe you first have to first,uninstall itunes and apple mobile device support, reinstall previous version of itunes, then download your previous firmware, then restore your previous firmware with previous version of itunes.

      It actually is possible to do. I found a site last night that describes the method to do it. I don't have the link, its at home on my computer but basically what I remember is that iphone 3.0 os only works with itunes 8.2 and apple released new usb drivers for the iphone that won't let it work with previous versions of itunes, even when iphone is in dfu mode. They have some software block that doesn't let 3.0 downgrade the phone to any previous version. The workaround was to uninstall itunes 8.2 and Apple mobile device drivers and then install itunes 8.2 beta. The guide said they didn't have new drivers for 8.2 beta and it is able to downgrade.I know itunes 8.2 won't let you downgrade as I played around with it on my iphone 2g 8gb last night. I will try to remember to post the link. Hope that helps some.
