is a discussion within the

iPhone News

forums, a part of the

General iPhone

You point out that GeoHot claims that the DevTeam jailbreak is complex. Well, compared to his answer, it really is. It is a shame that he won't be keeping up

    You point out that GeoHot claims that the DevTeam jailbreak is complex. Well, compared to his answer, it really is. It is a shame that he won't be keeping up with it. I do prefer his method a thousand times over the devteam one. No need for custom .ipsw's... the way it should be.

    People who say dev-team make crappy software in comparison are truly ridculous; even on the superficial level that most of us look at JB at you can still see that's absurd. Some of you follow the mac ethic with such endearment- a part of that ethic is "don't waste your time with updates": but yet you cheer on when you get- Purplera1n RC1 and RC2 within DAYS of each other, just to get it to run properly on certain OS's. Even after these updates- Purplera1n works ONLY on 3GS on 3.0 (then again this is what you get from the very best in jailbreaking ()).
    Version 0.8 not (0.8.1 or 0.8b) of Redsn0w works on multiple devices on firmware up to 3.0.1. this suits me because I regularly jailbreak all the touch devices.
    Jailbreaking is meant to be fun but it's also an unofficial thing- it's time to stop begging for it to be spoonfed to you- the more you do by yourself, however little, the more you learn and the more independent you'll become. Be prepared to press two buttons at once. Be prepared to unplug a USB cable (why this is even a factor in why you choose a jailbreak is extremely depressing; ^^^^ HELLOOOO, BUMP).
    I do wish some of you just look back to 2007 and see how much initiatve had to be taken to get the same job done. Just apply some of that initiative now and see how much further you'll get.

    Oh what fun we have
    If people don't like RedSn0w no one is forcing you to use it

    You have to admit, that if you were given the choice of downloading and running one app(purplera1n), and simply plugging in your iPhone, then pressing ONE button... it reboots itself and it is done in about 2 mins or less.

    OR

    Downloading redsn0w... download the 3.9 and 4.6 bootloader... then download the ipsw file... plug in your iPhone, run redsnow... point the app to the ipsw file... now select the jailbreak items... now put your iPhone into DFU manually and wait for a couple mins wondering if you did it correctly... which requires aside from the time locating and downloading all the additinal required files, it takes about 5 mins or more to complete the process...

    Granted both work without problems... which one would you pick?

    Purplera1n would be the winner hands down.

    look at it another way... if you had to jailbreak lets say 15 iPhones in a row... what method would you want to use?

    Both teams are amazing.. but I cant deny that purplera1n was a more attractive solution for me.
    Amen to that...

    PurpleRa1n did one device provided it was already activated. RedSn0w does multiple devices, unlocks 2Gs, hactivates etc.
    Do you want a screwdriver or the whole tool kit?

    Like I say, if you don't like RedSn0w, don't use it.

    You guys forgot the only reason Purplera1n was put together was to jailbreak the 3G S only and for no other reason. Plus at the time the Dev Team was saying f@ck you to all the 3G S owners because they didn't want to have to find another hole for 3.1.

    All I have to say is I'm thankful for Purplera1n because if it wasn't for Geohot we would STILL be waiting for a 3G S jailbreak.

    Donations for anything should be a thank you for what has already been done, not in expectation of what is yet to come!

    um no. The reason is that 90% of people commenting on the difference between the two jailbreaks have no idea what they are talking about. But you helped make my point so thanks
