  • Beta iPhone 3.0 Jailbreak Released (Non Dev Team)


    Russian hacker Vortex has released a beta version of a 3.0 Jailbreak (supporting firmware 3.0 beta 2 only). It is packaged in the Dev Team's windows Quickpwn software and reportedly works on the iPhone 1st gen, iPhone 3g, and iPod Touch 1st gen. It unfortunately does not install Cydia instead it only installs Icy. However you can install SSH via Icy and then install Cydia manually . On the plus side the download is only 3.2 mb because it is only packaged with Icy. Also to note not all jailbreak apps work with this right now because it is not fully finished. Some work, some don't.

    Be warned this is NOT Dev Team approved. This 3.0 Jailbreak while using the Dev Team's Windows jailbreak software and method is not using files packaged by the Dev Team. If you are worried about the possibility of breaking your phone then we do not recommend using this beta Jailbreak. On the other hand it has been reported to work so if you are feeling adventuresome this may be an option.

    Note: This will not unlock your iPhone 3g. Don't ask.

      Managed to QuickPwn the 3.0 beta 2.... just one thing, I cant get no network?! I have used both the "Activate" option on and off but still the same. Please dont tell me your phone still has to be registered with the Dev Team!

      Sorry, but I'm getting a kick out of all of the n00bs posting for the first time about how their phones aren't functioning properly after this. Some people need to learn to have patience. Plus there's a good reason why 3.0 is still in beta and not seeded to the general public.

      Exactly. It's probably because it's a lot of work rewriting QuickPWN to 3.0 and if they made a jailbreak for every beta that Apple released then they would have way too much work. And they probably have better things to do.

      you would have to have your UDID registered with a dev otherwise you wont be able to sync.

      Does anyone know if this new beta will work if you were added on a Dev's list for the last beta?

      Basically I was added on someones list so I could use the first 3.0 beta. I just want to know if I will be able to use the 3.0 beta 2?
