  • 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 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 )

      The update is just to fix the SMS hack I believe, rushed out ahead of 3.1 which is still in Beta.

      Does this release break tethering?

      Well that was fast...

      Definitely not updating yet though. I'm not too worried about the hack and I really don't feel like going through the whole update/rejailbreak (when it's out)/reinstall hacks thing anytime soon.

      Makes sense...damm AT&T for making us wait most of the summer

      So a no go if you jailbroke with purplerain, right??

      Dumb question, but has Apple ever reached out to the dev team(s) to find a compromise. This "war" can not be great for Apples image. Especially since it further highlights AT&T's flaws

      I will wait a day or two before I update, hoping that purplera1n will be updated to work. But it also gives me time to see how things float with redsn0w and the update.

      I am sure they didn't change to much because they got a spotlight put on them and wanted to hurry and fix it.

      I'm bad with all this jailbreaking stuff, atleast I am confused with the new update. What do we do with the .ipsw?

      Apple really didn't like all the negative press with this security breach. Oh well. I'll take my chances with hijacking. Life is not complete without jailbreak.

      Confirming the jailbreak works. 3.0 firmware in redsn0w 0.8 on a 3GS.
