  • 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 know. I did the jb on the 1st and 3G but eventually went back to the original software. I mean other than free apps and themes it didn't really excite me to much and ran the phone so much slower. I migh try it for the 3Gs because of the speed. Otherwise congrats to the dev team for their hard work and effort
