  • 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.

      Sorry you feel that way. I rarely have time to read an entire thread... busy job. Typically. this is when I prefix the ? the "Dumb question" or something of the like.

      Think consumer in a little broader sense. It's the idea. Don't nit-pick.

      Pretty sure they get it...

      Personally, I usually wait a bit when the new solutions come out. Let them work out all the bugs first.

      my only issue with the whole geohot/dev team debacle, is geo comes off as an arrogant *****, whereas the dev team guys are always funny, witty, and generally seem to CARE. that picture of geohot holding an iPhone on the purplerain site seriously made me want to throw up. I take no sides, they are all great at what they do.

      "But I'm happy you guys came around to my way of unlocking :-) And not just one of my ideas. You took them both"

      come on. that's douchebaggery at it's worst.

      geohot said it himself, a year ago his work was sloppy so he handed the exploits over to the dev team-in other words, he had no outs, the exploits would have been wasted. He gives them to the dev team, they take care of business and work their magic and we got yellowsn0w. Now that geohot has a bit more knowledge under his belt, he wants to take the place he thinks he rightly should have had from the get go. Example-I think of a way to make a product, but need someone with the technological knowhow, I give them the info, they do what I wanted, give me credit, but a year later I want all the glory back because I learned what they knew before. It's hilarious.

      Geohot is smart, decent at what he does, but lacks the class the devs have. In my book, he is a joke. ******* clown shoes.

      Did you read what I wrote? I have no preference. I'm just not a fan of douchy people, no matter what they do or how great they are. He is a GREAT hacker/developer/whatever, I give thanks/credit where thanks/credit are due, but why be such an ******* about it? The dev team members have ALWAYS been class acts about everything.

      As for my choice of jailbreak/unlock, it will probably always be dev team all the way. The reason- I have never had a problem with anything they have released. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.



      And will someone please at least agree with the fact that geohot acts like a ****? I mean come on, hate my response all you want, but you all read the same thing I did. Am I right?

      I don't think you are right, I am sorry. I think he is extremely smart and pushes stuff out as fast as it comes to him. He is young and a highly motivated person who just wants to produce the best, which is a great quality. Unfortunately I think he is misunderstood by most people who do not know who he is and is judged for his actions in response to the Dev Team. It is the people like him who continue to strive to produce some of the greatest things in this world. This kid is elite and as he matures and learns more and more we will see greater and greater results from him. There is no doubt in my mind...

      I tried purplesn0w and didn't work, even after reboot it said invalid sim. Trying on a TMobile sim. Uninstalled, reboot then installed ultrasn0w. It works, even made a few calls, this account doesn't have Internet but my wifi is strong. Posting from my phone.

      AGAIN, nobody bothered reading my post prior to responding

      Me- "Geohot is smart, decent at what he does, but lacks the class the devs have"

      Me- "He is a GREAT hacker/developer/whatever, I give thanks/credit where thanks/credit are due"

      I've never questioned whether he was smart or great. He makes an awesome contribution and has my respect as a dev, but gets nathan when it comes to being a great person. You're mixing it up. Steve Jobs is a GREAT TECHNOLOGY GOD, someone I admire in that right, but is a horrible, ****** human being and makes me sick. I'm sorry, but the wiz kid geohot is a douchecox.

      For your sake I hope he does mature, nobody should admire a 19 year old smarmy yutz.

      What an IDIOT! The only low class fool is you. Please go to a corner and play with yourself. Quit posting ignorant rants. If you really want to show support donate to the dev team. Show some class....

      -1 for irony

      That's pretty ironic, since your openly taking such an opinionated shot at him without even knowing all the "whys" behind why he says what he does. No one knows what's been said to him in private, and honestly, it's none of our business. It is what it is, but all of this unwaranted shots at the guy when none of us are involved are pathetic. No one likes a "douchy person", or a hypocrite. Practice what ya preach. That's all.

      Well if you were smart, you'd know the dev team asks for no donations, and I've already sent them a postcard, per their request. Can't say as much for geopaypalhot. As for ignorant rants, low class fool, etc-last I heard this is a forum where people can post their thoughts and "rants" about topics here. So I won't pander to your suggestions. However I am technically at a corner desk in my office, playing with my computer, so if that gets you off or makes you happy that I am actually doing what you suggested, prior to your asking, great. All I was asking, after my prior "rant", was that someone actually agree that geohot does come across as a douchenhyman on account of his comments. I guess you, amongst others, are the defenders of the universe over here and won't cop to it. So I'll let it go. Be the bigger man as they say. Go team venture.
