  • 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.

      I was seriously about to downgrade back to 2.2.1 right before I read this. I am glad I did... and for the apps that dont work right now

      Quickgold= wtf you dont need it now
      Sbsettings = does bossprefs work?
      Winterboard = manually change the graphics if desperate

      Quick warning, but do not copy the new bundles into the official quickpwn release (2.2.5-2). I learned the hard way (phone stayed in permanent DFU until I restored. But since I restored it works fine. So just to recap, you must use this version to successfully pwn 3.0. Do not try to port it to mac

      Man, just doesn't seem worth it to me. I'd rather wait for the real thing.

      It's like that Sims 3 fake leak last week. I want it now too, but it'll be worth it when it finally gets here.

      ...and sh!t don't even work.

      Works Greatly with the 2g iPhone (iPhone OS 3.0 Beta 2)
      Does anyone know why the 2g version has MMS on it?
      It was not supposed to work, was it?
      I'm not able to send MMS but I can receive it!
      Really nice!

      Thats what they said during the FW 3.0 release.

      11:28AM So... just wait until June everyone! "So Scott and I would like to thank you, we look forward to the amazing things devs will do. Thank you very much."

      11:27AM "What about the rest of us? iPhone OS 3.0 will be available this Summer. A free update to all of our iPhone 3G customers. And it works on the original iPhone. Now the hardware has changed between these two devices. For instance, A2DP and MMS won't be available on the iPhone 1st gen. It's also available for the iPod touch... for $9.95."
      I think its BS in some ways. Apple should have just said, GO OUT AND BUY A iPhone 3G for us to make more money! lol

      Maybe thats why its a BETA and not fixed...

That is until DEV TEAM comes up with something which I'm sure they will but for right now it's not lookin good.

      Actually it might be time to start looking into FACTORY UNLOCKED iPhones lol

      So the iPhone 2G can do MMS and proven by Apple now as well as SwirlyMMS and iBluetooth.

      I don't get why Apple won't put them features in, I'd upgrade for better hardware spec not software.

      on tysiphonehelp some said they tried it but it was so slow for them that they hated it, and it took them a week to revert back to 2.2.1. a lot of people dont recommend it right now. and neither do i. im going to wait for the official release.

      'this guy' is the Rip Dev team who most people know.
      It's your choice as to whether you trust them or not.
      I don't.

      There is a reason why the dev team has never released a jailbreak for beta firmware!... Should already know this... oh and he dev team is on point... they don't like releasing their tricks to Apple beacuse Apple can patch certian things before they release the final... so go on and continue to use these hack jobs... but don't post asking for help... you were already warned... just wait.. all the good stuff will come soon enough!!!
