  • 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!

      So far no luck using XP mode in Windows 7. It just puts the phone in restore mode and then XP can't seem to hang on to the iPhone as a USB device.

      it let me uninstall winterboard in safemode

      yes you have to use a regular VM not the windows VM...

      Also about Winterboard, I think I know the problem but I am not a coder so it does not do me any good.

      On the 3G S you have the PowerVR graphics chip the calls from springboard to that are probably different so winterboard does not know what to do.
      When you are in safemode the extensions that Cydia uses (and all third party apps) do not work so the uninstall is not clean this means that springboard is not able to work properly after the removal and reboot

      So we are most definitely waiting for new versions for many of the applications that make calls to the graphics subsystems ...

      Ok Intelliscreen locks up at the reload SpringBoard stage...
      It works after a forced reboot though.
      Make it Mine also works.

      Rock works but give a quick error saying it cannot retrieve data... works after that

      Is anyone else having a problem with reloading springboard?

      Everything that I install that requires a reload of springboard locks up there with just the spinning wheel...

      Excellent. Thanks for letting us know, I'm installing as we speak.

      I just read that winterboard doesn't work because this jailbreak doesn't have the vm_mem patch that the dev team used for the 3G 3.0 jailbreak. It is also needed for substitute SMS apps (ie. QuickSMS, MySMS, etc etc).

      Mine is not having that issue. Also, Intelliscreen didn't give me any errors. The resprings are lightning fast, maybe 2-3 seconds? I love the 3GS! My only apps installed are SBSettings and RockYourPhone, so it might be a conflict with one of your apps.

      I said the jailbreak would hit by the end of the week. Sorry for keeping everyone in the dark for the past few days. All the hate PMs and emails were annoying me.
