  • 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

    For information on the security content of this update, please visit this website:
    Apple security updates
    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 )

      For those of you that f@ked up you're phone because you jumped the gun too bad. I'm sitting here laughing with my 3G S working PERFECTLY on 3.0 because I know noone's going to hack my iPhone. Don't be paraniod and just relax with what you have. Nothing is going to happen to you're phone unless you f@ck it up yourself trying to install and jailbreak this pointless update.

      Anyways, just thought I'd take my turn to be an @55HOLE lol.

      I'm using the regular 3.0 version on 3.0.1 and Sling works fine for me.

      The install package did not ork with 3.01 until BigBoss updated it. there was nothing wrong with 3G Unrestrictor itself, you just couldn't install it through cydia

      The main reason for the 0.72 update to RedSn0w was to fix the issues with PPC.
      0.72 and 0.80 work on PPC

      I upgraded, ran RedSn0w and UltraSn0w shortly after Saphoseattle had tested it and found it worked OK.

      This is kinda how I feel about it. More like it happens it happens. This update does not add anything new. Seen it on many of the forums and comments on news about this, does it fix mms, does it fix this or that. Looks purely as a security patch to stop the news from hounding them. I will wait for saurik's easy fix.

      Okay. I upgraded to 3.0.1, jailbroke, then re-downloaded PkgBackup from Cydia. It restored 3Gunrestrictor fine. PkgBackup must use a different method to reinstall jailbroken apps.

      Did you use Catagories before you updated and rejailbroke? If so,I believe I know how to fix this "issue"

      Thank you to Crashx and BigBoss for getting 3G Unrestrictor back up and going quickly.
