  • First official photos of a jailbroken 3G[s] released. Tool not too far away!


    Earlier this morning geohot posted the first official photos of a jailbroken iPhone 3G[s]. geohot uses an iboot patch to upload a LLB to the phone which utilizes the 24kpwn patch in the bootrom. He mentions on twitter that a simple change in the current redsn0w would allow the 3G[s] jailbreak:


    geohot:


    There is still lot of questions on whether geohot plans on releasing a jailbreak tool of his own or releasing his exploit to the other dev teams working on the project. Seeing as it would only take updating a few lines in redsn0w, I would hope he allows the dev team to update it and get the tool to the public as soon as possible. We almost haz jailbreak.




    Enjoy!

      Is anyone else having issues with their GPS not working at all?

      I keep getting an error saying that my location cannot be determined.

      Mine did the same on Vista. I had to use my XP laptop.

      I doubt running it in XP compatibility mode would do anything? Worth a shot I guess. I thought about that after the fast. On XP it did its thing in like 15 seconds.

      FYI, from twitter.....

      chronicdevteam @PhoneLine we hope to get the patches on Cydia and push out a more stable program that applies these patches ASAP
      ------
      I was inquiring about the kernel patches. But a more stable app is a extra bonus

      Excellent news. Aside from WB which I know to stay away from, most others things are working well. I'll be 100% happy when the patches come......right now I'm only 99.9 %

      yeah i hear that its been a frustrating day haha took like 10 hours to do for me . So we cant d/l any new keyboards or anything right? because of the winterboard thing? Probably a dumb question but ive never done the jailbreaking before really.

      Everybody has to start somewhere right?! You are correct though anything envolving winterboard like the keyboards, themes, etc. everyone needs to hold off on until this patch is out.

      i know im kinda late on this, but earlier people were having the "purplera1n encountered an error" message. I got this a whole bunch, and I didnt know what was wrong, but then I remembered that he had hardcoded it to C:Program Files...whatever, and I realized my local disk was F: where all that was stored, so i plugged in a usb and made the same directories and it worked first try.

      Just to help anyone out that had that problem
