  • GeoHotz says R.I.P Purplesn0w and purplera1n


    GeoHotz announced yesterday that he will not be updating the Purplesn0w and purplera1n tools for OS 3.0.1. In fact, he won't be updating them at all. One reason - the DevTeam tools already work. He also mentions that the tools were merely a proof of concept, trying to show better and much more painless jailbreak methods exist than the DevTeam's, which he claims to be "complex"!

    I code to make things simple, hacky, and fast. Dev codes to make things proper, slow, and complicated; redsn0w works OOTB. [...] Someone enterprising out there could probably fix it, it's just the kernel patches that are in the wrong place. Exploit and 99% of payload will work fine. But otherwise, purplera1n RIP.
    GeoHotz says those willing can customize his patches to work on the new firmware with a minimum amount of changes, as most of the payload works - it's just a matter of changing the spot where the tool tackles in the kernel. Although... hey, what's wrong with proper? Can't he do simple, proper, and fast?

    If I do another tool release, it'll hit the ipt3 and ra1nydayless 3GS. Told you I had more holes.
    Finally, he ends the blog on a good note having said that he may still do work for the iPhone / iPod Touch community and will be releasing some nice solution once the iPod Touch 3 is out, as he claims to to have some more holes...

      The good news is that the gauntlet has been thrown. He's put his **** out there that he's got another glitch when 3.1 hits. He'll be a mockery in the community if it proved untrue. I doubt that's what he wants to become.

      There's a light at the end of the tunnel and it's a jailbreak for the 3G S on 3.1. That's the up side.

      Purplesn0w is a great app but devtools will always be the most "secure" jailbreak in my opinion. Redsn0w is the mercedes of jailbreaking, where as purplesn0w is more like an Acura. It's nice and will do the trick but ultimately will not hold it's value in the long run.

      Nooo!

      Purplera1n was the best! Someone please knock some sense (or cent$ if that's what it takes) into this man.

      I liked how easy Georges method was, I also like how clean it was. It was simple and effective, dev teams meathod is sloppy in comparison.

      Whats funnier is that I sit in my BMW and sit comfortably on the real leather seats while the guy in his mercedes is scratching his head asking "why didn't leather come standard in my Mercedes? I didnt know this car was made by Chrysler?"

      Too bad that Mercedes is made by Chrysler...which in turn is made sloppy these days. Most Mercedes owners complain their cars spend more time in the shop rather than on the road. So I guess your analogy Does work! Dev product owners spend most their time with their phones in the "shop" as well...

      I am a fan of both . and my thinking is if Geohot never release Purplera1n, i dont known that we have the redsn0w today or my 3Gs still in the box?

      I think purplera1n is a lot better than redsn0w. I like not having to press all of the buttons. Also, I wanted to jailbreak my cousin's iPhone, but no, it's not possible because the power button is broken, so there's no way to do the button combinations.
