  • 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:

    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 )

      So the main page has been updated saying we can jailbreak with redsn0w and unlock with ultrasn0w- can anymore confirm? Do I still have to re-unlock if I'm on the 2g iphone? Can't I just jailbreak with redsn0w? (and does anyone have a walkthrough for that one? I've only used pwnage tool before)

      EDIT: Okay, so "Fightoffyourdemons" confirms the jailbreak in the post before me, what about the unlock and/or walkthrough?

      Then I realized, since it only patches the SMS exploit, it must still be jailbreakable...

      So I ran redsn0w 0.8 using the 3.0 firmware (NOT 3.0.1), and whaddya know? It works.

      Just sharing.

      You should still wait on an official 3.0.1 jailbreak, as I have no idea what this might do to my phone...
      we know, i think it was posted from OP

      MMS with the iPhone under AT&T has nothing to do with Apple or the firmware, it has to do with AT&T being [censored] about giving us what the rest of the world already has. T-Mobile users were able to get MMS working with their unlocked iPhones weeks ago, and you can /technically/ get it to work with AT&T too until they run a sweep and notice you're on an iPhone and then your fix is gone. It just wasn't worth the hassle to keep swapping SIMs back and forth all the time for a few MMS messages that I get weekly. Still waiting on the official word from those [censored] people at AT&T about the official release too.

      This is my first time going through an update with Jailbreak. Please help on the steps. Do I,
      1) make sure I have all of my cydia apps removed, backedup, or ready to be lost.
      2) then update to 3.0.1
      3) Re-jailbreak with the same redsn0w (8.0) and firmware patch.
      4) re-install all of my cydia apps


      Also, what about that iTunes update 8.2.1? I never updated that.

      Am I missing something? Thanks....

      1.) All apps installed through Cydia will be lost. Definitely back-up your phone in iTunes, though.
      2.) Yes.
      3.) Yes, but use 3.0 in redsn0w.
      4.) Yes.

      I can see why the 3.0 ispw will work for the JB since there's not much different......

      but are there any chances that using the 3.0 ispw could actually leave the SMS bug open by copying some older code over the 3.1?

      Any chance of that, or does it not copy info from the selected ispw to the phone and just use it to see whats on the phone?

      So if I have my mine jailbroken already with AT&T, I don't have to worry about upgrading and losing the jailbreak?

      Thanks for the confirm. I know the main post says all this but they way they phrase it seems to be speculation- I just wanted an actual tested "it works". Thanks!

      That's exactly what I was wondering.

      You will have to restore your iPhone to factory settings to start with (this will wipe off the jailbreak including all the cydia apps etc)
      Then update to 3.0.1 via iTunes
      Re-jailbreak via redsnow using the 3.0 patch
      And redownload all your apps

      I gave it a shot, but my 3GS is just stuck on the redsnow waiting for reboot screen when selecting the 3.0 IPSW.


      Edit: Nevermind, I had selected the 3G 3.0 file not the 3GS, its working now.

      I'm an idiot, please move along

      I really don't get the point of all of this. If we update to 3.0.1 and then rejailbreak using the 3.0 ipsw won't we have 3.0 back on our phone rather than 3.0.1??? What's the point? If anyone could explain why we would want to do this I would appreciate it? Thanks.
