  • iPhone 3GS Exploit Discovered, Jailbreak Might be following or NOT?!
    In a recent blog post by GeoHotz, he has put up an image of what seems to be a new "exploit" he just discovered for the iPhone 3GS (yeah, 3GS!).

    Clearly depicted in the pic is a modified version of iBoot, which means he has somehow bypassed the sig check on the iBoot 596.24, which is the new one for the 3GS. The project he seems to be working on is what he calls "Purplera1n" or "purple rain" instead. He's even put up the site for it at http://purplera1n.com/ though all it sports is a pic of him with the phone, getting wet in purple rain . . .

    However, as said by some other big names like posixninja, this is an exploit which could be built into a Tethered Jailbreak and is not even sure if it will ever get developed into a full fledged "Jailbreak" due to the obstacles involved.

    iZsh: my guess: heís just playing around, I donít think heíll do a full jailbreak.
    On the other hand, the iPhone DevTeam member iZsh has similar thoughts who believes that GeoHotz might not be working on a jailbreak solution from the scratch, especially when tools like Pwnage and redsn0w already exist. All he might do is hand it over to the Chronic Dev or iPhone DevTeam to work on it or there is even a possibility that this exploit will never be disclosed to anyone.

    We do hope there's a working jailbreak based on it out soon for our 3GS folks!

      Maybe a little off topic, But has anyone figured out how to change the SMSBackground on 3.0 and the keyboard. Seems like something has changed with winterboard or with 3.0 that doesnt allow this. I am assuming just a different location of these files or a different name. Anyone who has figured this out yet I would love to know!!! Thanks!

      I hope that this information is released to the Devs so we can get a jail break going. I love my 3G S but I do miss Cydia.

      Hopefully this will be shared, then hidden appropriately so we can JB our super duper GS's :-)

      Why wouldn't it be released? They have not held back on the masses before.

      Why doesn't apple add sbsettings (or the like) to the firmware? That would take care of most reasons the average Joe such as myself jb's. I can do without the other nice features of jb but sbsettings was sorely missed for that horrible, bleak week.

      I have 3.0 unlocked and jailbroken and I immediately got Stereos Leopard iGlassol and Dashboard downloaded to my phone and I'm using the original 2G so I understand what you guys are going thru looking at the 3GS

      Sure there is:

      First, you jailbreak your 3G. Then:

      Wow nice to hear that as I was planning on getting a 3GS.
      About the Jailbreak, no matter what Apple does I will always Jailbreak, alone for the purpose that I can modify the look, sounds and function of my device how I want.

      QuickPwn.com is working on making it and plans to have the QuickPwn 3.0 jailbreak released by Friday this week (possibly earlier, but we donít want to get your hopes up). If youíre using iTunes 8.2, the current QuickPwn will not work on it but we are working on fixing this in QuickPwn 3.0. If anyone has experience creating jailbreaking/unlocking software and would like to help with the QuickPwn 3.0 jailbreak please e-mail webmaster[@]quickpwn.com.
      I will only use software developed by the Dev team, not these clowns. I find it hilarious that the so called developers at quickpwn.com can post a release date of this Friday and then ask for people with jailbreaking / unlocking experience.

      quickpwn.com is a con - They just steal the Dev Team's work.
