  • Apple Releases 3.0.1 Update! SMS Hack Fixed!


    REMEMBER DO NOT UPDATE IF YOU WANT TO KEEP YOUR JAILBREAK AND UNLOCK!

    Update 1: We have confirmed that 3.0.1 breaks the current jailbreaks . . . well at least the 3GS.
    Update 2: Looks like using a 3.0 firmware .ipsw with redsn0w to jailbreak 3.0.1 works. Purplera1n failed. This might be unlockable with ultrasn0w as well (we don't know if the baseband has been updated yet, all testing has been done on 2xiPhone 3GS with the 3.1 baseband).
    Update 3: As far as we can tell all the jailbreak stuff is working fine (including winterboard) still don't know if the baseband was updated or not though thx jomasta
    Update 4: I was just told that the baseband is the same meaning ultrasn0w should* work (iPhone 3G and 3GS). Can't confirm so try at your own risk. Anyone feeling like testing? edit: confirmed working.
    Update 5: To clear up any confusion. iPhone 2G users should* be safe to upgrade and then jailbreak/unlock via redsn0w vusing a 3.0 frimware file. We just haven't confirmed unlocking for the iPhone 3G and 3GS yet.
    Update 6: MMi user paige lets us know you can easily jailbreak 3.0.1 right now while waiting for an official tool - just restore the 3.0.1 firmware, and then using redsn0w 0.8, select the 3.0 IPSW, not the 3.0.1! After this, redsn0w will do it's magic and you'll be jailbroken on 3.0.1. edit: BTW this method has now been dev team approved.




    Download links for 3.0.1:
    iPhone 3GS
    iPhone 3G
    iPhone 2G

    Download links for 3.0 (needed to jailbreak 3.0.1 via redsn0w):
    iPhone 3GS
    iPhone 3G
    iPhone 2G

    All that this update appears to do is fix the SMS vulnerability that we reported on a couple of days ago. The release notes are very very vague so we can't really provide more information until we install it ourselves and poke around, which we will do asap and either update this post or make a new one edit: updates above

    Release notes:
    iPhone OS 3.0.1 Software Update

    Products compatible with this software update:
    iPhone
    iPhone 3G
    iPhone 3GS

    btw. mad props to MMi member LatinKreationz for being super fast on the uptake posting about the update only 2 short minutes after it was released. It let us get a post on the homepage super quick (which I have now stolen and edited )

      I finally got the jailbreak working. But it's not worth it in my opinion, i should have just stuck with 3.0 because now since the 3.0.1 broke the jailbreak it erased Winterboard and it's setting so I have to start from scratch again to build my theme. Oh well lesson learned.

      Well I thought I did that.. my phone has Cydia on it. It just is showing 3.0 firmware. Did I miss a step somewhere.. I apologize in advance, I'm new to all this stuff.
      In settings -> General -> About it should show 3.0.1

      It can't hurt to try again with the files from here.

      When I do that mine say 3.0. So do I download the 3.0.1 file from the link that was posed earlier and use that in redsn0w?

      No use the stock 3.0 ipsw in redsn0w after restoring to 3.0.1. You'll end up with a 3.0 kernel on 3.0.1 but it works.

      Ok.. I think I've done that already.. One more thing tho. After I restored to 3.0.1 itunes showed a screen that asked me did i want to set up iphone from a backup. I didn't at that time and continued to JB with redsn0w. After that it sent me back to the activation screen and asked did I want to set up the phone as new or use a back up.. I chose to use a back up. Did I mess something up by doing that? Cydia is still on my phone though.

      I have a 3GS and jailbreaked to 3.0.1 using redsn0w on windows. Why did i think it was a good idea to start this at 3am! bloody virus scare! Its 4.28am all done, i need to go sleep!
      One thing isnt working for me and its the most important! 3G unrestictor aka tricker 3G. Is this going to work on 3.0.1 ?

      No you need to set it up as a new phone or you may experience power issues.

      Ok.. Last questions.. Do I do that between the Restoring and JB or do I wait until the whole process is over? Also how do I get all my contacts/SMS/Pix back if I do it as a new phone?

      Such a simple and obvious question that everyone knows but I can NEVER seem to understand correctly, if you have a jailbroken iphone on any firmware and a new update is released from apple, should you RESTORE & UPGRADE instead of just UPGRADE because it saves your old data and takes up extra space and other bad things like that or does it not matter? and also if you set it up as a new phone will it still have service from AT&T, and will I lose my contacts? Sorry for all the annoying obvious questions.

      Just upgrade, and by syncing when done all contacts will be there. You'll still have AT&T service.

      Excuse me as I've just skipped to the end of the thread here, but when I read the "just use the 3.0 IPSW" comments, I just have to ask...

      Your comment is probably right on. You'll end up on 3.0.1 with a 3.0 kernel. My question is this: Is there even any point to doing so?

      This is a remote execution exploit that allows arbitrary code execution. How do we know there wasn't a patch to the kernel in 3.0.1? Certainly this could be a kernel mode problem!

      I updated to 3.0.1 in iTunes, then used the stock 3.0 firmware in Redsnow. Works perfectly currently on Orange UK Pay as You Go on the 2G

      Ok so has anyone noticed a difference in the battery drain?? With push service on??

      Cause if thats not fixed, ill wait till 3.1 or saurik comes out with a quick fix instead of re JB.

      Saurik now has a note in Cydia that using a 3.0 ipsw in redsn0w breaks 3.0.1.

      I haven't noticed any problems yet. Easy enough to redo with the 3.0.1 FW.

      Breaks as in how? Im showing 3.0.1 and redid redsn0w with a 3.0 ispw and all is working great (well not ALL but when 3g Unrestrictor is fixed then ALL lol)

      Which reminds me..if we SSH into our phones,is there a way we can change anything on our own in 3G Unrestrictor to get it working again instead of waiting for a "possible" fix? Then again we cant even download the program atm but for some reason when I SSH,it still shows up in my Applications folder but the icon for my screen is gone,as if its not even installed

      Wow I don't see why people are so worried about updating to this firmware and jaibreaking it. Noone is going to hack you iPhone!!!!!! Just wait for 3.1 which might actually have something worth updating for.

      No, the note says redsn0w JAILbreaks 3.01 - slight difference there.

      Anyone else noticed that battery remains at 100% on 3.01 - is there a thread about this? I JB about 7 hours ago and my phone is still showing 100% (3G with numeric battery through SBSettings)
