  • 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.

      #1 - not if you download it direct from Apple, otherwise I believe it is.
      #2 - it certainly would ruin my phone. I use YellowSn0w

      #3, who gives a crap who uses it. Give it a try before you knock it.

      I understand software legality may be an issue here, but nevertheless there had to be a way to put this on the iphones? Like i said in my earlier post I tried to do it, with my internet connection off the ENTIRE TIME (yes, it was off even before I started the restore) and it DID NOT WORK.

      did anyone else do something differently?

      That's why it's important to do as much reading and research as you can on the subject of the 3.0 beta before attempting to install it on your iPhone. That way, you learn about the little details such as needing to register your UDID with Apple before proceeding.

      I'm not trying to single you out; I'm just noticing that a lot of folks have plunged headlong into installing 3.0 only to find out the important facts afterward.

      No, i completely agree with you. I was really naive to go along with some of the youtube videos claiming you can install 3.0 and bypass the software disclaimer of needing a dev account by turning the internet off.

      I was rushing to update with "itchy fingers" and i have learned my lesson.
      I just wanted to learn more regarding this subject and see if there os any other possible way to install 3.0 legitmately.

      Question: if i get put on a dev UDID account, and then i update to 3.0, THEN would i be able to use it legitimately? And would i be able to recieve future updates for the 3.0 beta and download the software, and would i be able to downgrade to 2.2.1 if necessary?

      Unless I am mistaken, I believe the answer on all counts is no.

      I believe the 'beta' is for developers only and not to be distributed to 'testers'. Can a developer confirm that I am correct? Or am I talking rubbish?

      By getting your UDID added to a developers account you will be able to activate your account and use the FW but I believe the only way to download it legitimately is if you have a developers account yourself.

      Can a developer confirm what sort of support you get for this beta?

      As for downgrading - some people have downgraded but lots of people have lots of problems downgrading and, of course, you can NOT downgrade the bb.

      Yes yes, that is correct

      This is how I have 3.0.
      Each developer has like 100 available "dev tickets" (brain fart, can't think of the correct word).
      In order for them to give away these "dev tickets", you need to give them your UDID. (you find this in iTunes, but clicking your Serial number.. it will change to UDID, then just CTRL+C).

      Once they add you, they need to send you the 3.0 software, as it might embed something in it, so you can install. Don't quote me on this, as this is just my thinking.

      So you just need to find a developer that is nice enough to add you. As I have read, they might end up charging you $5.. Which isn't bad, I guess.

      If you have anymore questions, let me know.

      Yeah well the Apple Dev's (like myself) can add your UDID to our devices list. Then you will be able to activate the firmware once you download it from somewhere. It would be 100% illegal for a dev like myself to send this firmware to you.

      For anyone interested in trying 3.0 or to read more misunderstood info please see the thread I have created here:

      http://www.modmyi.com/forums/general...apple-dev.html

      Hope this clears it all up for you.

      Ok i am a registered developer and 3.0 is a Beta release for developers to incorporate support for the new capabilities of 3.0 into their software (accessory support, push notifications, cut/copy/paste, etc...).

      The Beta Developer release was not intended for general public use and that is why tethering and MMS have not yet been activated by Apple or AT&T.

      The legitimacy of using 3.0 is kind of shady. While apple does allow developers to seed their apps to "testers" who don't have to be developers, apple agreed to allow developers too add up to 100 devices to their lists as to collect crash log info and make debugging much easier.

      Apple do not support or recommend updating at this time (If you are not a developer or tester for a developer). It will not void your warranty but will leave you with a unjailbreakable OS. If you try to update without being on a dev list you may not be able to activate your phone, but some people have managed to circumvent this.

      The only Beta support i have come across is a fresh install and the inevitable release of 3.0 Beta 2 ( I do not know when it will be released).

      Downgrading is possible but there is a lot of trouble with people trying to do so on Mac OS X only because apple has more control on what we can do on as far as hacking on there than it does on the tangled mess we call windows. ;-)

      I hope i answered some of the questions flying around here.

      Cheers!

      So I have done my research for hours on end, and finally have attained the legitimate iPhone 3.0, and came up with a way to get iPhone 3.0 on your phone.

      Special thanks to dancin_smurf for showing me this way and leading me through the process, and what29 for hooking me up.

      The only way to have 3.0 on your iphone is to get a DEVELOPER to add your UDID into their system. YES, it is true they can fit 100 UDID's under one developer account. NO, it is FALSE that you can not update to newer firmwares once enrolled. You can update still.

      **EDIT CPJR - NO LINKS ALLOWED - END OF STORY**
      i 100% recommend "What29". Use him while he's available. He is totally legit and will help you out the whole way. No sketchy business just straight up. I would definitely say $5-$15 is worth having pretty neat software that probably nobody else around you has, and you get to try and have fun with for 3 months.

      Since people arent listening....DO NOT LINK to the firmware here on this forum.
      And for anyone else still wondering....unless you are a dev it is considered pirated software and illegal.

      It is Beta! The SDK and the API's within are not Beta but the OS itself is Beta.

      It is a version for Developers to test their development, it is not Beta.
