  • One step closer to a 3G[S] Jailbreak and Ultrasn0w will work also


    Sorry Apple, jailbreakers win again. Nice try tho. Try harder on the 4G


    geohot:

    Earlier today, we got our hands on the bootrom. With the help of chronic, posixninja, and pod2g, I verified that it is still vulnerable to the 24kpwn exploit present in the iPod Touch 2G. This is great news for all of you. Basically, this means if someone makes a tethered jailbreak, it becomes untethered, because the boot chain is broken. Expect big things soon =)

    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.

    EDIT:


    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!

    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 don't see why not, but you'll need to check with your service provider to see if they, like AT&T, have a special iPhone data plan that they make you use. I haven't heard of many other providers doing this, but without knowing what carrier you use nobody can give you a 100% certain answer.

      so maybe these guys in detroit that are claiming to be able to jailbreak the 3G[S] phones now for $100 are probably legit?

      I can't say more than this:

      I am VERY close to Apple, closer than 99% of you.
      News like this, makes all of us rebel Ap...,-- er--... Emp....

      Very, very happy.

      Bought my first gen iPhone the day the first (JB and) UL came out and I had a fun time with that before all this nice GUI stuff came out.

      A little secret about the aforementioned topic, from what I hear, there are a lot of Apple Employees that love their jailbreaks and hate their AT&Ts. ...Just something I heard...

      Well, I can't be too sure that Apple will be sad, because thanks to this I'll more than likely shift gears into 3G[S] and get the 32GB. HECKKK YEAH! Awesome work guys!

      I was wondering how zodttd was able to release the psx4iphone for 3Gs. How did he get root access? Did he use this method?

      No he is a dev and signed it himself. But it wasn't for all iPhones just the one he signed

      Dear Apple,

      Pls watch the movie TOM AND JERRY again and again so that can learn something from there and may be later your company can make some sort
      of movie for the iPhone user too and earn some extra money..
