  • 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 )

      ^Agreed, I am not about to sit through updating and then modding my 3gs all over again because of some BS MMS Security ploy to trick Apple into paying $$$$ to patch the exploit. 3.1 will be out soon enough anyways....I will also stay on 3.0 for an entire year just to prove I never get hacked

      Besides, why go thru all this when you know the dev team will be releasing an update for redsn0w.

      Go through all what? Update to 3.01 in iTunes, run RedSn0w using 3.0 ipsw and away you go.
      You will need to reinstall Cydia apps but aptbackup helps with that and if you fork out $2 for PkgBackup you can just restore them.

      RedSn0w will not be updated for this as it works fine with 3.0 ipsw.

      I agree that the threat is minimal but if you do want to be protected it's not a lot of hassle to upgrade.

      @Napoleon_PhoneApart - yes it backs them up and restores them so no need for the install package - sounds like another good reason for forking out a couple of bucks!

      I was talking about the fus of 3.0.1...IMHO it is not worth the trouble of upgrading for me when I hate winterboard so I ssh files into all the proper places to theme my phone. It takes me around an hour or more to set up a new phone so I will wait for a more substantial update.

      Plus, I will not let redsn0w touch my 3gs, sorry confucious

      If I did everything manually I probably wouldn't bother either.
      I assume PkgBackup wouldn't back up manually SSH's items either - have you tried?

      If you don't want to use RedSn0w that's your choice, no one is forcing you too.

      I don't think that's very fair because this fifteen year old can spell & write better than most adults.

      No it's not different in English - just no one had ever explained it to me - I just asked my fiancé and she explained it to me.
      15 days until your birthday means only 19 until my wedding - so much to do and so little time...

      @Melech518 - don't you love how easy it is to wing young people up? I get wound up by far more petty things these days
