  • 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!

      Definitely looks silly in that picture! But aside from that, he's brilliant in my books. Hope the 3GS gets a jailbreak soon, I just picked one up today for full retail price

      Apparently the only way to upgrade from a 3G is if your bill averaged over 99 dollars each month for a full year

      They had to give most of the money back as oit was from the theives at quickpwn.com

      If you want to help the Dev Team donate at http://bit.ly/Jfnf0

      [Edit] As someone has pointed out - it is not the Dev Team as a whole - just 3 members of the Dev Team accepting domnations - @planetbeing @copumpkin @izsh1911[/Edit]

      Ive only ever read posts from MuscleNerd explaining why they don't take donations.

      Can you point me to an official Dev-Team / Dev-Team Member post asking for donations?

      Dev-Team Blog - Search results for: donation

      I am going to advise everyone the same as MuscleNerd, DO NOT DONATE

      "planetbeing Hey, I just want to make it clear that the Dev Team does not take donations as a group; we just got permission for some of us to.about 1 hour ago from web "

      From twitter

      MuscleNerd may be the only member of the team that follows nme on Twitter but that doesn't mean I don't follow the rest of them!

      The Dev Team is NOT accepting donations. PlanetBeing, copumpkin and izsh1911 have been given permission by the team to accept donations to purchase iPhone 3GS's. It is not the team as a whole recieving donations, just those three members.

      My previous post has been amended. You are, of course, right.
      Not the whole team, just @planetbeing @copumpkin @izsh1911

      By default on the 3GS you can go to settings>general>usage and turn on the battery percentages.

      So I wonder how long until Apple offers this guy a job. He seems to know his s***.
