  • 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 though this exact samething,is it my imagination?,

      but what I did is I turned off the Numerical Battery indicator because I felt like it was draining faster, but onceI turned it off and got back to normal usuage I realized it was all in my head.

      He is making perfect sense. You don't have to pay for something to be a consumer. Any time you use, eat, drink anything you're a consumer. Any time you have a choice of things to consume i.e. coke vs pepsi you have a choice. IF you make that choice and you consume, you are making a consumer choice. How is that so hard for you to understand?

      I was about to install Purplesn0w RC2 when I discovered a problem with my 3GS power button (it's slipped even with the chassis and is almost impossible to use). ATT says they'll replace the phone but that it may take over two weeks because of the overwhelming demand for the 3GS. In the meantime, I'll be out of the United States and need to unlock my phone before leaving.

      My question. If I unlock using Purplesn0w RC2, is it possible to restore my phone to its original, locked-to-ATT condition? If so, how?

      Thanks!

      All you have to do is restore the phone through itunes. It will be stock iPhone again and return to AT&T.

      Is this an updated jailbreak? Or just an updated unlock?
