  • 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!

      If I wasn't getting married I'd probably do the same.

      There are so many AT&T/MMS threads in different locations on these forums it is making my head spin. I'm hoping someone can provide a succinct answer to a question I have.

      Let's assume I've updated the IPCC file and have the MMS options on my 3GS. I have the little camera on the message screen. I've entered the AT&T MMS settings posted in numerous places. Whenever I try to send an MMS the slider gets about 90% of the way there and then I receive a message failure error. Rebooting doesn't change that.

      I have the iPhone data plan, and unlimited family messaging. I do NOT have any non-iPhones on the account, so I cannot take advantage of the sim swap explained by others.

      I realize the reason it's not working pertains to my account settings with AT&T. My question is this: what EXACTLY are the things I need to say to an AT&T rep in order to try and get MMS working? I'm willing to get on the phone for a couple of hours and try to sort this out, but I need to know what to say so when I find the right person they'll be able to help me.

      Thanks in advance!

      I was getting the same on my phone but solved it just now. I'm on T-Mobile UK and do have MMS on my account but they would not send.
      I just did a hard reset (Power and home until phone reboots) and it now works

      Not sure if it will help with yours but worth a try.

      I would like to know if there is anything I need to do my Iphone 3G S before I JB (when it comes out)? I still haven't activated. I want to JB and then put a T-mobile sim card.

      yea, this is a just in case file....meaning you might need this file to COMPLETE a jailbreak when it comes out.

      when the 3G came out did any of you JB your iphone without first having to activate with AT&T. Or you first Activate it with them and then JB and then switch providers?

      Its better to activate with an AT&T sim first. Then all the push stuff works
