  • Purplesn0w RC2 Released



    Via Geohot blog:

    * 3G(the network speed) issues fixed
    * Now only patches one file, CommCenter
    * Leaves no traces on your baseband after it runs. Seriously
    * Much more clean and reliable.

    Be sure to have legit activated 3GS
    Disable 3G if you don't have it(like T-Mobile).
    Add apt.geohot.com to Cydia
    Install(or Update) com.geohot.purplesn0w
    Watch for success output in Cydia(actually do this step)
    Wait for signal, and enjoy your unlocked iPhone(no reboot required)

    With regards to devs comment that I use tons of ram, that was all RC1. This one uses 0, yes ZERO, bytes of ram after it is installed. But I'm happy you guys came around to my way of unlocking :-) And not just one of my ideas. You took them both.

    This unlock is for the 3G[S] only.

      I ran purplera1n RC2a and everything seemed to go well. The Freeze icon appeared and I ran it to install Cydia. Once it got to the "Finished!" point, I exited out and rebooted my iPhone 3Gs. But Cydia has never appeared. I have done this 5 times now, and still no Cydia. Any suggestions?

      There's a red x in the upper right corner of this screen. See it? Click on that. It holds all the secret downloads. Now, it'll close the window, but just hangon while all the juicy secret downloads get downloaded to your 'puter. Takes about 30 minutes so DON'T OPEN ANY WINDOWS for atleast 30 minutes.

      I would just like to let everyone know that I am using both of these with no problems at all. I have a legit activated 3gs that I used for one day on at&t. I have been with tmobile for 5 years, I am grandfathered into the 5.99 plan. Everything works perfect, edge is fast enough for me. Wifi works, no battery issues, no issues at all. Ya, I don't have 3g but I don't need it. I am so impressed with George I sent him 10 bucks. I would send him more if I was a rich man. Thanks George you are a god.

      Ok, I swear, I'm not THAT much of a nood!! Been jailbreaking/unlocking iphones since 1.0.2 or somewhere around then...

      Now switching from 3g to 3gs. Purplera1n ...awesome! ...Purplesnow.. I don't know, because I won't have a 3rd party sim to put in till I get to Paris tomorrow morning (in Toronto on Rogers now)... BUT HERE'S WHERE I FEEL LIKE I'M MISSING SOMETHING... OR POSSIBLY AM JUST BEING A DORK

      I install purplesn0w from cydia... it seems to do that standard install, then I get the standard 'return to cydia' button at the bottom when it's done (not sure that's exactly what it says but you get the idea).... EXCEPT WHEN I READ THIS LINE IN THE INSTRUCTIONS, I GET THE FEELING I MISSED SOMETHING...

      'Watch for success output in Cydia(actually do this step)'

      Actually do this step?? I have no idea what I'm watching for or what to 'do'

      ... and I'm on a plane in three hours

      So, and one of you clear me up real quick... you can flame me later

      ....... and Mate.

      Although it was a quick giggle, you should give him the correct instructions under your response since it was a reasonably legit question.

      Three cheers for the dev team and geohot! We need them both for progress. Lets hope the pissing contest matures into a useful collaboration some day.

      On a side-note, there's rather a lot of bullying going on in this forum. Feels really welcoming, y'know? A bit like high school play ground. Anyway, people, how about some support for each other rather than endless digs and abuse? Most members seem willing to help, but a select few really spoil what is essentially a great site that lots of people rely on for news and advice. I know, I know, it's great fun to abuse people when you've got the protection of anonymity, but it's time to grow up and just play nice. Kay? Kaaaay

      I have a quick question, please guide me to the right one to use for unlocking. I have a 3GS that was originally activated through AT&T by my sister and she used ultrasn0w to unlock. Now, I want to fully restore the device, because I don't want all her stuff on there. If I restore it, it will bring me to the connect to iTunes screen. Do I go ahead and jailbreak it and then use Purplesn0w 2? I know that it says you have to have an activated iPhone, but does not mean currently activated, or ever activated? thanks

      I just was wondering which unlocking solution to use and now that I see that RC 2 doesn't use any memory after it is installed and doesn't corrupt memory, I think I will most definitely use purplesn0w. But which jailbreaking solution do I use? Hmmmmmmmm?
      (I mean which is best? cause there is a bug in redsn0w .8 and one needs to unplug the phone and then plug it again to do the jailbreak)
