  • 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 )

      Yes and yes.
      But if you Run RedSn0w and select the 3.0 ipsw you can JB again then install UltraSn0w and all will be fine again

      Battery problem is fixed by a hard reset.

      Apple don't lock phones! 3.01 is official and RedSn0w JBs - they won't bother updating RedSn0w just for this.

      What happens if you have previously used purplera1n? is it possible to just restore and then use redsn0w or will prurplera1n leave stuff behind which might cause problems?

      If you restore nothing will be left behind. Not sure if you just update though.

      So despite using purplera1n first time around if I:-

      restore
      install 3.0.1 using itunes
      then use redsn0w using a 3.0ipsw

      I will be good to go again?

      I also have a 2g iphone which needs unlocked too - is that the same as above except then install ultrasn0w?

      no need to restore i used purplerain before and i just installed 3.1 from itune then redsnow 3.0 firmware and everything is ok

      I am not sure that PR and RedSn0w won't cause unforseen problems. I would recommend doing a clean restore.

      UltraSn0w is for the 3G/3GS only, not the 2G. RedSn0w unlocks the 2G.

      It is always best to do a full DFU restore when updating you're firmware. Also in my opinion I think it's best to set up as a new device each time just to make sure nothing gets re-installed from the old firmware. Hell I don't think i've ever used the "Update" button. I ALWAYS put my phone into DFU mode and restored. It keeps it nice, cleaned up, and running smoothly.

      3.01 is such a minor update that I actually just updated rather than restored this time.

      anyone know if this update improves battery life.
      3.0 is a juice guzzler.
    1. confucious's Avatar

      I have better battery life with 3.0 than I ever did with 2.20
      Push Notifications are a battery guzzler.

      But to answer your question, no, all this update does is fix the SMS hack, nothing more.
