    Thumbs down 4.1 3gs Fake Jailbreak?
    This morning I came downstairs and found my dad telling me that he was jailbreaking his 3gs with 4.1 firmware but it wasn't working. So I was oh cool didn't know that was out, checked MMI not listed, maybe iPhone-dev , nope not there either, how about Comex , MuscleNerd , Chpwn I then look up at him and tell him it's most likely fake since next to no one has mentioned it. In fact Criminal90 the one claiming to have the jailbreak called out chpwn, as if chpwn is ignoring him.

    Anyone want to shine more insight into this? I am like 99% sure this whole thing is BS.

    I think she was talking about the 4.1 jailbreak, not the 4.1 firmware

    FYI: Criminal90's archive contains modified PwnageTool 4.1 bundle in which is a copy of 4.0 with Info.plist keys updated to 4.1 final, but patches still from 4.0 hence incorrect, plus a tool that replaces some files during the ipsw creation process with jailbroken code from 4.1 beta (kernelcache is from 8B5080). It could work, although I haven't tried installing it, since I'm not a fan of mixing and matching kernels to the rest of the OS.

    I would not trust some half baked hash up from someone I don't know. Wait for the real thing.

    you can use redsn)w to jailbreak 4.1 on iPhone 3G and (i think)3Gs, im getting my 3g up to date right now.
    WARNING: as this v. of redsn0w wasnt released to perform this jailbreak people have reported certain problems, the main one being phone.app not being on the device anymore, i dont use my 3G as a phone anymore so im going ahead with it so i can see how much of an improvement 4.1 makes in terms of speed..
    PS> most jb packages most definatly wont work on 4.1, so if you do decide to do this, dont go installing all your fav apps from cydia caus youll just end up in safe mode

    heres some linkage ;p

    RedSn0w has not been updated for 4.1 - please don't try it.

    ^^^it hasnt been updated, but it still does its job (granted there are a few quite MAJOR bugs as can be expected using an out of date tool)
    but at least my 3G is actually once again usable, i mean wow i can actually open an app in under 5 seconds, YES! plus i actually see some animation when opening folders and multitask dock, rather than just slow moving pixelation lol
