  • 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.

      Brand new ones might - or might not - come with the latest FW. Unless you can get the shop to confirm the FW version first I would assume it will come with 2.21 which can not be software unlocked.

      BossTool works
      Install (in order)

      OpenSSH (SSL is installed at the same time)
      Update to Icy 1.1-2
      Core Utils
      Mobile Substrate
      Cydia (will not work but is required for BossTool to function)
      Boss tools

      Voila!
      I can also confirm that PDANet kind of works. I SSH'd in and reset the permissions to 775 recursively.
      Open PDANet
      Turn it off
      Close PDANet
      Create your ad-hoc network on your computer
      Connect to the network
      Wait for the iPhone to establish an IP address (tap the blue arrow)
      Open PDANet
      Turn WiFi router on
      Tap done
      It *should* connect
      You may end up with

      or

      Either will allow your computer to connect. I much prefer PDANet to Apple's built in teathering (activated via carrier hack) I'm getting roughly double the speed through speedtest.net with PDANet vs. Apple BT teathering.

      Cool. Also does anyone know how to install cydia? Hating Icy. I tried manually but keep having to restore. Please help, post the latest copy and give special directions if any... Thanks

      i thought that the 3.0 would not work or wouldn't give all features to the 1st gen iphone...
      is it still worth the upgrade?
