  • 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.

      Most definitely the best choice for unlocking

      uses 0 bytes on baseband now instead of 1MB and doesn't corrupt memory

      I've enjoyed reading on twitter these guys battling back and forth (geohot & dev-team). Dev-Team's last blog post was the worst..it's made me laugh. It seems like geohot is good will hunting, and dev-team is the pissed off teacher that wishes they could do half the stuff geohot does. They are good, but they are constantly behind geohot. Geohot just picked this up again the past month, and has already improved dev-teams product due to it.

      hehe... I don't take sides... Neither for the Dev. Team. nor Geohot. Only thing that matters to me, the "product" that turns out the best and does everything it's suppose to. Consumer choice baby...

      Consumer choice? You do realize we're not paying for all this stuff right?

      This version's really working great! And as previously stated it really takes up ZERO space. SUPER efficient!

      They don't have to "charge you" to have a "consumer choice". As soon as you have "choice" and you "consume"... you have a consumers choice...

      hey has anyone compared purplesn0w rc2 and ultrasnow .9?
      I would do the comparing if i had a att card... unfortunately my phone is hactivated...

      I'm just curious if 0 bytes really makes a difference compared to 152 bytes...

      if anyone has tried both, please put in your 2 cents... thanks

      You should uninstall one and then reboot your device before installing the other.

      You should not have both installed at the same time.

      Unless you don't have a valid SIM to start with. Guess I have no choice.
