  • 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 nobody knows what going to happen within the next few days regarding the jailbreak, but I'm sure most of you have heard about this:

      iPhone 3G[S] OVERHEATING - Battery Issues Likely Cause of iPhone 3GS Overheating | Gadget Lab | Wired.com

      So I haven't gotten mine yet, apple says they're going to start using new batteries, anyone have the same problem?

      They are working on it, as has been posted they are fixing a couple of bugs in the GUI and in the actual jailbreak.

      Chronic are not saying they are waiting until after 3.0.1, on the Dev Team.

      Mine has not gotten hot at all since I bought it.
      I have been playing with Motion X GPS and a few other apps without any hint of heating up. all with WiFi on to see if I can duplicate it.

      It is possible that the batteries are being affected by third party chargers. Samsung had an issue with that years ago where thrid party chargers were damaging the charging system and affecting the batteries. after a few charges they would overheat during use and kill the phone (in one case burning the face of a person using it)

      I wonder if something similar is going on here.

      A.T - Apple Retail Store - iPhone 3GS availability at the Apple Store

      Both Manchester stores have stock of all models between them

      The O2 Call Centre monkeys are clueless when it comes to this type of thing - a colleague of mine was told by them 2 weeks prior to the 3G-S Release that "no new model would be released this year"

      sounds like AT&T here in the US. they were telling people that the 3G S was sold out on Saturday and that you would have to order one (waiting 7-14 days) but the Apple Stores had plenty and only a 30 minute wait.

      I have that problem when using certain CPU intensive apps, like leaf trombone. I also have a serious issue with battery drain, my 3g & my 2g BOTH hold battery better. I have been investigating this on Apple's forums, I am not alone, but there are several suggestions I plan to implement. I am not using any 3rd party chargers.

      I think I'm just going to pick one up today, regardless of the overheating rumors.

      My window of time is closing for me to get my ECID thing before 3.0.1

      So far my 3GS has gotten no warmer than my 3G -- and I've been using the crap out of it.

      I think it has to be 3rd party chargers. I'd like to ask someone who had a real overheating problem with the 3G[s] and see if they used only the apple charger.

      Just get it. I went and bought 2 yesterday so I would have them here with the purplera1n...no problems, no overheating, no drainage. Like any new phone I just let them charge for 24 hours before using....but if you want to jailbreak I would suggest getting them soon

      A.T, it sets itself up automatically after you are activated at 3.0. They send you a text preparing you for the following text which is a picture.

      Do you have a proper iPhone contract or simplicity or something?

      Hello.. First post here

      Eagerly awaiting the 3gs jailbreak.. but curious if anyone has heard of:

      Unlock iPhone 2G, 3G & 3Gs 3.0 - Easy iPhone Unlock - iPhone 3.0 Unlock

      I know there are a million scams out there regarding this stuff, but this one is endorsed by zibri on his blog which seems sort of weird... I googled for reviews and things but could not find any real salient details on them..

      Certainly want to support geohot/chronic/devteam and would love the free version, but curious if these guys are full of fud or not..

      Thanks..

      How much time do you think I have?

      Also, how and where should I buy it (btw, I'm switching from verizon to at&t so it'd be under new contract)?

      Well actually I'm using an iPhone 2G with the hack that makes MMS appear in the Messages app. All was working fine until I decided to text MMS to O2 to get settings, I thought it would trick them into thinking I have a 3G but nope I was wrong, they realized I have a 2G, I can send fine, just can't receive.

      You have plenty of time. When 3.0.1 is released they will still be shifting stock of 3.0 iPhones so i wouldn't go panic stations yet, it just depends on how seriously Apple are taking this jailbreak
