  • 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!

      I was under the impresion that the Jailbraik was that low down the chain that Apple would need to change the hardware to stop any device that is already Jailbraikable from being Jailbroke, So whats the wait for 3.01 update have to do with anything. If it can be jaibroke now then it will aways be jailbraikable.

      Correct me if I'm wrong but thats my understanding and I've been around since 1.14.

      Believe me, when they post information it's to show the other team that they secured something first.

      Stealth, if the jailbreak gets released before 3.0.1 then i will give you mad respect and will never doubt a thing you say, ever again.

      For now it seems to me like no matter whats happened before, geohot and the dev team are working on something, together, and seeing as the chronic dev team have never released a tool before it just makes logical sense to release an updated redsn0w.

      Time will tell though im sure, and i hope your right SB and we see the jailbreak allot sooner

The dev team wants the spotlight, they will release right away if the chronic dev team gets close. In fact they are furhter along then the dev team except for not having a tool to just patch. Believe me geohot was snubbed and if you look thru his tweets you can read between the lines. They didn't credit him for giving them an important piece of the jailbreak puzzle.
      ^+1....for sure!!!

      If they were working together, wouldn't we have a product already? Especially if it's a 10 line change? It's tough to say because nobody says they are/aren't. Going to have to be patient and listen to SB

      ty sb, kinda sux that dev team has the tool, and they could just update it. i was thinking about selling my white 3gs and buying a 3g on ebay, i know that sounds crazy, but all we have to do is be patient, even tho its really hard to be right now. thank you to both dev teams including geohot! your work is greatly appreciated!

      Competition is always good and in the case it will bring a faster jailbreak.

      AND

      Stealth: geohot confirmed that the 24kpwn exploit works on the 3GS bootrom. Does this mean that the whole purplera1n stuff is now dead and buried? Or do we still need the generated file from purplera1n.com?

      Very good point. You haven't seen a jailbroken 3GS on the iPhone dev teams blog have you? And why in planetbeings tweet would he say that they were a few days behind geohot? If they were working together than they would be on the same page. The fact is they might not be showing it to the public and, I am probably over stepping my bounds, but geohot and the dev team are not cool with each other. They respect each other but they are not working together at this moment. The chronic dev team is working with geohot in some aspects. They have the task right now of building a new gui tool. If they could finish the gui soon, then they could beat the dev team to a release.

      He recommends to still do the dump but its not needed at the moment. Also, purplera1n is alive and well

      Yep, traded his unlocked 4GB iPhone for a Nissan 350z and 3 8GB iPhones. Not a bad deal eh? I bet the guy that traded feels like he got a little screwed now though

      Of course they're behind. Look at all the work they've been doing for the past 2 weeks with the precious jb's.

      Planetbeing himself apparently played a part in geohotZ progress else geo wouldn't of thanked him on his blogg I believe it was. Just as geo handed planetbeing some info.

      In a race, teams don't exchange information or colaborate in such manner.

      Reason you haven't seen the jb is as stated. Both sides rather wait for the upcoming patch.

      Hell, if it's Reilly a race then I'm all food for that as well. We get our jb that much faster. But I sincerely doubt that's the case here.

      On another note. It does bother me that geohotz doesn't get credited for anything he does for th devteam. I totally agree sb. Geohotz always credited any help he's gotte with anything where the devteams seems to rather keep the spotlight to themselves.
