  • 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!

      I really don't care about the 3GS, I mean, a compass? come on Apple. It's only a matter of time before the 3GS is jailbroken but I'm more interested in getting SwirlyMMS and iBluetooth 3.0 compatible

      i have had each of the diff gen iphones, the main diff for the 3GS for me is the speed, i dont use the compass at all, simply opening,closing apps is so fast it makes it worth it, my o2 internet speed is also alot faster compared to 3G.

      plus my 3gs only cost me £180 a i sold my 3G for £370 on ebay

      It's not a con, they give the Dev Team credit for Quickpwn and they donated something like $1500 for the 3GS fund but the Dev Team returned it asking they give the domain quickpwn.com to them instead.

      theyre making a ****-ton of money off the dev teams sweat, and software name.

      what i dont know is why the dev-team wont just change the name of their software and reg their domain and take back their traffic?

      very nice. hopefully their future hacks fall under the 'redsn0w' name as well, 3GS jb's for example?

      snow many sn0w flavors. an all in one app would be killer.

      This was my first thought when I saw the latest jailbreak release from the devteam named "redsn0w".

      Basically pulled the carpet out from under the thieves. I'm glad they did it.

      Great job devteam!

      I'd forgotten about vWallpaper. I bet that would run great on a 3G S.

      c&p from I clarified
      GeoHot has managed to decrypt the RAMDisk for the iPhone 3GS and has posted the key.

      Once the vfdecrypt key is found it will be possible to use the key with the 'vfdecrypt' tool to decrypt the main filesystem DMG found in the .ipsw file.

      Ramdisk Key
      IV: E345E23BB266FCC2BA23A2E0BE77A3BF
      KEY: 44514633CE2AEAD62BCFA8836CDA4A3C
      and a little more...
      7BDE483F8B1E9F19D22F9D8FDF753E02

      Props to whoever gets the vfdecrypt one
