  • 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!

      Ok so how would we go about getting the unique ECID certification?

      I understand that I need to down load the restore file through iTunes but, once that is down loaded where do I locate it on my Mac? Also, is the unique ECID certification part of the restore file?

      You may be sad about the lack of game Apple brought to your art form this time around, but on behalf of the masses, we're glad it comes so quickly and easily

      Hi,i was just curious, if they have figured out a way to unlock the Iphone 3gs, I have a iphone 3g and since it was purchased after Jan. 1st, it has the new baseband 2.3.03 installed, and it seems like the only way to use it for another service,(Tmobile for me)is to use the rebel or other sim cards. this hasnt been too good, there terrible, so do you think with this new method for the 3gs, could it work on the 3g with updated baseband 2.3.03. thanks alot

      Isn't that a bit premature?

      Have you not been following anything? You can upgrade to FW3.0 and unlock it with UltraSn0w.
