  • 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!

      order now before a new bootloader nulls everything beyond for a long time.

      The BL isn't the problem - it's the BB.
      Which they will probably update with a FW3.01 in a couple of weeks.

      i recall reading somewhere that a lower BL version allow you to downgrade BB at will. It is a definitely a plus for *.*sn0w. there is no point to upgrade since cydia allow us to install similar features. and the current sn0w isn't good as the dev team would wish.

      YS worked with BB 2.28.00
      US works with BB 4.26.08
      No need to not upgrade to FW 3.0
      Only BL 5.8 can downgrade the BB but that is not necessary now.

      It means they have hopefully found an exploit. But thats not a confirmation of total success for a jailbreak.

      Guess I should just buy one huh? What stinks is I'm just going to put the Sim into the 3G till I can JB the 3G-S.

      But also, don't want them to update something then I can't JB it!

      Ahh, the dilema.

      SecureROM for s5l8920xsi

      Thanks planetbeing for help with the MIU. It was playing hard to get.

      And Apple, you have bugs in "usb put". Want the patches?
