  • iPhone 3.0 Jailbroken Already


    iPhone 3.0 is coming summer.

    And while the baseband IS updated in this firmware (so if you're yellowsn0w unlocked, DON'T upgrade til a proper PwnageTool version is out), 3.0 is already jailbroken, so say the Dev Team on a recent blog post.

    And for those wondering, yes the 3.0 OS is jailbreakable on all devices. It’s just those using 3G yellowsn0w that have to show some restraint and wait for PwnageTool to create a custom IPSW that avoids the baseband update.
    We'll let you know ASAP when a version of PwnageTool which works with 3.0 is out, but rest easy knowing the devices are already ready for WinterBoard and all your favorite jailbreak apps right next to Apple's 100 new 3.0 features.

      Thanks for clarifying.

      I use YellowSn0w so obviously can't use this but do you have any idea if it would work for people in the UK on O2 (the official UK operator) ?

      I did not see this listed anywhere, and no one might not know yet, but when was the official release of 3.0 scheduled for? Early, Mid, or Late summer 2009?

      this is nothing to be excited about. apple would be stupid to include their latest anti-jailbreak schemes in a beta and give the devteam months to prepare. they'd be smart to save it for the very end, or the release, and force people to choose between upgrade now (and lock yourself up with a new baseband) or wait weeks or months for a possible jailbreak.

      Sp I have 3.0 and can use it. How do I jailbreak??? I know it's possible. There's no point in having 3.0 without jailbreak.

      Yeah. Just restore to stock (if necessary) and then restore to the new firmware in iTunes. That's the route I took.

      the new firmware download (from the Apple developer file) is a DMG file (have to launch an application (on MAC) to get access to the ipsw file .... is there another way to get access to the ipsw file that itunew will recognize? Thanks

      There is software you can use to open on a PC. I did it last night and i am running Vista. When I get home i will post the software I used to open it and then just dragged the ispw file out onto my desktop and restored in itunes and selected the 3.0 ispw.

      Just dont do what I did, get your UDID registered 1st or you will lock your phone up. I had search quite awhile and found another program to get my UDID from my phone. Once i had that registered with Apple, itunes activated my phone and everythings been working great.

      To get your UDID all you have to do is launch itunes and conect your iphone and then click the serial number and it will show you the UDID. Then you can copy it and register it.

      I installed mine on windows. I went and downloaded TransMac for free and then opened the DMG file using it and extracted the ISPW to my computer then did a restore using the new 3.0 ISPW. I hope this helps.

      Does anyone know, that has 3.0 running on iPhone 2G, if Apple put the necessary files for MMS and Bluetooth in iPhone 2G 3.0 firmware so there can be a hack for us 1st gen users to use those abilities like you could with Emoji?

      Apple probably didn't but thought might aswell ask.

      I just realized to get past the screen you need a jailbroken iPhone as you need to modify the Lockdown folder. So the thread about this issue will be no help to you at all.
      I suggest you just downgrade again through DFU mode as there isn't a baseband upgrade so 2G users are ok whlst 3G users aren't.
      There's a guide on BigBoss's site.

      As a 2G Tmobile user, I was under the impression that this is a Beta version of the 3.0 software, and that not all of the bluetooth profiles are included in this Beta version of 3.0. I was also told that the MMS feature would be limited to 3G users and would only work on AT&T. But again, I am not 100% sure about all this. Can anyone confirm the 2G list of features, or rather lack thereof that are only available to 3G users on AT&T.

      What on earth gives you the idea it is Beta?
      It is a version for Developers to test their development, it is not Beta.
