iPhone 3GS Exploit Discovered, Jailbreak Might be following or NOT?!
In a recent blog post by GeoHotz, he has put up an image of what seems to be a new "exploit" he just discovered for the iPhone 3GS (yeah, 3GS!).
Clearly depicted in the pic is a modified version of iBoot, which means he has somehow bypassed the sig check on the iBoot 596.24, which is the new one for the 3GS. The project he seems to be working on is what he calls "Purplera1n" or "purple rain" instead. He's even put up the site for it at http://purplera1n.com/ though all it sports is a pic of him with the phone, getting wet in purple rain . . .
However, as said by some other big names like posixninja, this is an exploit which could be built into a Tethered Jailbreak and is not even sure if it will ever get developed into a full fledged "Jailbreak" due to the obstacles involved.
iZsh: my guess: heís just playing around, I donít think heíll do a full jailbreak.
We do hope there's a working jailbreak based on it out soon for our 3GS folks!

It should kept secret and only released to the dev teams. Maybe as a joint effort.

Sweet! I hope this leads to an 'untethered jail break' . It's hard living without Cydia and all those wonderful themesHave they released the jailbreak in the app store yet?

I sure hope it results in a jailbreak. I really miss Sbsettings...and my theme...and my wallpaper...and copy and paste ( only because of the clipboard capability)...and vWallpaper...and...ah hell, you get the point.

Is GeoHotz not the guy who stole code for the unlock/jailbreaks back in the 1.x days?
or is that Zibri? I feel so confused with who GeoHotz is.... Anyone explain?The Original Autobot of MMiJesus couldn't turn into a fire engine

Don't forget the BL5.8 exploit!He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
