  • 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.

      He's offering a FREE service that benefits YOU. He doesn't need to be nice.

      You think the person that serves you your McDonald's or your Starbucks is being nice to you because they like you or something? No, they put up with douchebags like you and put up a fake smile in order to keep their jobs.

      I'm sure it's really refreshing to have an opportunity where you don't have to do that.

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.
      You do have a "preference". You prefer the Dev Team over geo and everything you've posted is very biased. Your [AIR QUOTES] Intelligent [/] rants are nothing more than ignorant laced attacks at a guy you don't even know, or know why he's said what he did in the past. No, instead you wanna come on here and call him the douche? Holy irony Batman. You're being a penis, and now that everyone's pointing it out you're trying to demean their "smarts" compared to yourself to defend your arrogant rant? You're a ef'ing clown guy. Congrats on giving the forum a refresher course on How to be a Hypocrite. I'll be sure to bookmark this post for future reference.

      Please refrain from anymore ignorant attacks on the guy. The community has enough Keyboard Cowboys already. *sigh*

      Hey @sshole!! You know there's a thread called Purplesn0w vs. Ultrasn0w right around the corner. Why don't you check it out? You can type up you're pathetic rants in there all you want.

      Not when ultrasn0w has been updated it's not. purplesn0w requires an activated phone, and it still doesn't work on the 3G unlike ultrasn0w.

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.
      Says this as he downloads purplera1n/purplesn0w....

      Who cares if Geohot is arrogant? I can dislike a person's arrogance and other qualities quietly and still respect him for putting out an absolutely free tool that benefits a lot of people. Why people keep having to draw the line and enter into a debate about whether to speak against douchebaggery or appreciate that person's work is beyond me- if its free and intended for you and others to enjoy, just say thanks and stfu. Just me, though.

      Thank you Geohot for putting out a great tool.

      Maybe for unlocking a 3GS. ulrasnow also does the 3G which makes it the best choice overall.

      Of course. IF you have a 3G. But that's not what we're discussing is it.

      @overhart77 Good point It's clearly a Marketing and Engineering thing. Absolutely astonishing ideas are developed without the intelligence to bring to market. Geo.. IS smart, but the Dev-Team knows how to make a user-friendly products. Both are extremely important to the success of any idea.

      apple not letting the pre sync makes plenty sense... "iphone killer" that requires an iphone program to sync? i think not, let them stick with windows media player lol

      I thought this thread was for people to post their experiences with puprplesn0w RC2 but apparently it's just a flame war.

      Glad I read through the whole thing.

      Thanks for many helpful posts...

      I did a jailbreak and unlock with Geohots's software... works great.

      BUT, it seems that the tethering that I enabled previously is now gone. Does this have anything to do with the jailbreak/unlock, or with iTunes 8.2.1, or???

      When I try to enable tethering, the old tools don't seem to work now. Any suggestions?

      TIA.

      eeehhh

      Palm Pre doesn't require iTunes to sync. It can sync with any media sync app out there.

      Syncing with iTunes was just a nice side bonus while it lasted. I think Apple should have made iTunes brick the Pre when connected
