    On a personal note, I'm sad. Apple, it took me a week to break through your new defenses. And to let us reuse an exploit like that; 24kpwn was so 5 months ago. Although I imagine it must have been painful watching the devices roll by on the assembly line, knowing they all had a hole in them and you couldn't fix it.

    This is great news!

    And yes, ultrasn0w will be able to be run on the iPhone 3Gs for you unlockers!

    Are you starting to get excited yet 3G[S] owners?

    Enjoy!

      I too am almost use to my unJB iPhone 3GS..... I hope it comes out soon, the only things I can think of for me to JB it is for Themes and PdaNet. I know about the Tethering "hack" but I am worried that AT&T will hit me for a huge bill.... I mean I used PdaNet to the tune of about 5GIGs worth of data traffic and I wasn't worried about it at all. It just worries me that the Tethering is in the firmware and the will be able to keep track of it.....

      LOL, mine too. Still sitting on my kitchen table in the original box it came from China in untouched. I am still rockin my 2G until the day comes, after having my own icons I created along with the system sounds and everything else, a basic iPhone is crap in my opinion. Still absolutely amazes me that the "BEST" phone on the planet has to be "hacked" just to customize the look of the damn thing.....pathetic actually.

      Excellent news! I can't wait to start theming on my 3GS. With the new speed a JB GS will be like a new canvas. I've been addicted to my twitterfon app watching planetbeing and MuscleNerd updating their progress. It's like a new video game lol.

      Props to GeoHot and All the DevTeams on their undying devotion to ensure we all can have OUR phones the way WE want them. Not just a bunch of lemmings running around with cloned talkboxes.

      well, i'm thrilled

      i used the store hack that was posted (don't think it works anymore) but it did work because i got my 32g black iphone by fed ex 2 days ago. it's been sitting in the box because w/o a jailbreak and unlock what good is it...

      well, but since i was able to buy it without a contract tonight i figured what the hell and plugged it in. and of course, i should have realized...no contract...no problem. so i'm building my phone now (which i'll have to restore once there's a new pwange tool) but i am setting it up. and already i'll tell you one great thing...32g is NICE. i'm loading over 15g of music, 3.5 g of apps, 8 movies and i've still got lots of space. now that's nice!

      and now i read the jailbreak is actually looking positive. WOW

      32g..it's really a true mini notebook now isn't

      UPDATE:

      from the iphone dev team

      24Kpwn lives on, in the iPhone 3GS!
      About 5 hours ago, we were able to verify that the 24Kpwn exploit that the hybrid team used on the iPod Touch 2G is still present in the bootrom of the iPhone 3GS. That means we can apply the same sort of technique used by our current redsn0w tool to jailbreak and unlock the iPhone 3GS.

      This is great news!

      For our technical notes on where the 24Kpwn exploit is in the 3GS, see here (pastebin hash of it is here).

      And yes, ultrasn0w will be able to be run on the iPhone 3Gs for you unlockers!

      going back to the first page of posts, i thought just to add one other thing to why i think the jailbreak is so important...mac is far and above the most beautifully designed of all computer electronics. it's the primary work tool for almost everyone in every phase of the entertainment and related businesses. so for me the app i'd miss the most is winterboard (besides the unlock. i'm a t-mobile guy and would never switch). but so many people have put great effort into theme designs and making ways to have our iphones become an expression of personal esthetic tastes, i'd most regret that loss. it goes without saying that ssh is a must as well.

      so all you great dev teamers, and mr cydia (jay) devoted designers like bars...i applaud all your efforts

      quick question.. i think i know the answer just want to verify.

      any jailbroken apps already working on 3G 3.0 should work just the same on a JB 3GS right? Apps run the same, its just the jailbreak thats different due to the hardware... correct or no?
