  • 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 )

      Bottom line is how can they even hijack your phone, dont they need your phone number? Iam a bit worried right now because i just bought my new iphone today and iam using it on tmobile and i dont want anything to go wrong. I dont even want to update but if it will fix the hijacking problem then i would like the firmware jailbroken........can you even jailbreak 3.0.1?? Is it atleast possible.
      Sorry for all the questions its my first iphone and i guess i got it at the worst time possible.

      STOP worrying man. Nothing's going to happen to your iPhone. You also didn't pick the worst time to buy an iPhone. These updates happen all the time from Apple. Just do not update your phone through iTunes until you get the all clear from this site or the Dev-Teams blog. Relax and enjoy your new iPhone.

      Currently jailbreaking with 3.0.1 installed, but it seems stuck on uploading ramdisk... Does anyone know how long that usually takes?

      I have a 3GS jailbroken with purplera1n on 3.0 - what do I need to do now to get 3.0.1

      I also have a launch iphone jailbroken and unlocked with the pwnage tool (I think) - I cant really remember how I did it - is there a way to check?

      Can someone advice on what I should do

      wait?

      Wait for RedSn0w to be updated. I wish people would just be a bit more patient so things can be tested properly.

      That was before it was update to become 3.0 compatible. I personally like PkgBackup.

      Yes, I will have pictures to confirm the 3GS jailbreak. You still have 3.0.1 and the jailbreak itself. This is done with redsn0w and using a 3.0 firmware.

      Yeah I'm holding off on doing a workaround Jailbreak. I've got no worries or concerns for the time being.
