Thread: purplera1n for Mac Released - Jailbreak your iPhone 3GS

  1. #201
    Hi All:

    As I've not JBed my new one (did older models) I'm curious: the one thing I would use at this point (many features having been improved) is the ability to use "borrowed" apps. Does this work at this point for anyone? I suppose I miss SBSettings as well ...I'll live until Winterboard is stable!

    This was, by far, the easiest jailbreak of any I have ever done - and I have done them all, from the very first iPhone, through the 3G, and now with the 3GS. It could not be simpler. In fact, I would say that if you have problems with doing this, then you shouldn't be even considering having anything but a stock iPhone.

    My jailbroken 3GS is very stable, and everything is working perfectly. I had mentioned in a different thread about a month ago that I would not be upgrading from my 3G until I was able to do everything I could on the 3G on the 3GS. That time came. I sold my 3G for the exact same price as I paid for the 3GS, and literally everything is working perfectly.

    I can't comment on using redsn0w - I read all the appropriate threads, and the overwhelming consensus of opinion is many (not everyone) have had a lot of problems with it, but purplera1n was quick, easy, and flawless. So I went with that. And I found the same thing to be true. If you are on the fence, get off, and just use purplera1n. Thanks, geohot!

    Does this not work for version 3.0.1?
    Is there a way to change my version back to 3.0?

    It doesn't work for 3.0.1
    Why not just use redsn0w?
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    Hi Egyptbk

    Sorry but purplera1n has been superseded. This JB was released last year over the old version for the iPhone 3GS. If you want to use a jailbreak (JB) then read the forums and apply the JB that is relevant to your situation.

    Remember at the moment there is no JB for a 3GS running on iOS4 which has not been jailbroken before.

    I hope that this helps or clarifies matters.

    Kaid
