  • 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 will JB for custom SMS, SBPref, and other SB toggles, not much else is needed but those things alone are worth it for me!

      I'm just happy to know it will be jailbroken. I'm can be as patient as needed, just knowing my extra ram will be able to use up all the mobile substrates my heart desires makes me happy! Be curious to see how much ram it actually uses by default.

      I just hope it doesn't kill the battery faster. The battery is a little better, but it's not a whole lot.

      Can't wait for SBS to be back. That's the thing I miss most.
      Themes...hey I can have that video background if I want now with little impact (Though I'd never do that).
      Backgrounder actually becomes practical (if it gets ported)
      I also miss my wolfenstein . The z port was awesome, I may have to buy it in the app store now.
      Haptic feedback was pretty dang cool too, but I always turned it off cause of the memory hit.
      Loved the blackberry storm keyboard too, but that always slowed me down a lot.

      I'm stoked!

      How far after that can we expect 3GS software features on the 3G?

      I miss having my calendar events on the lockscreen the most. Why Apple hasn't thought to do this is beyond me.

      Yes but I still don't understand why the dev team publishes how they do it. Apple will just keep plugging things and one day we might not have a JS. I can understand wanting to get credit for outsmarting Apple but if you don't tell them how you do it the same exploit could be used over and over. OK enlighten me.

      because is the same if they say it or not. apple just have to download pwnage tool and jailbrake one of their 3gs and theyll know exactly where the exploit was.
      also remember the apple have a love/hate relationship with the JB because at the end if there is a Jb means more sales for them.

      Though this is exciting, I will say what GeoHot said was a little distasteful. To be honest though, I think Apple could care less as this will just BOOST sales more than likely.

      All Apple really needs to do is use the free unlock themselves and see what is effected. Nothing is REALLY gained or lost with the dev-team releasing how they do it.

      I really don't see the need to taunt apple that you found a hole in there iphone because at the end of the day lets be real,the dev team is not making any money off this as well as the guy who found the hole,apple and atnt are laughing at all of you,regardless if you don't go with atnt you still bought a iphone or product of apple and they still get paid/

      but good job,i will def be selling my 3g and buying a 3gs soon once u guys release jail break

      Jailbreaking is great for Apple.

      I wouldn't have bought the new phone if I didn't think it would be jailbroken and I'm sure others are in the exact same boat.
