10-14-2009, 10:28 AM #83How do you bring up that info in DFU mode?
So, I just purchased a 3G S last week.. I guess I should check to see what verison of iBoot I have? Or, will blackra1n still work on phones sold last week?
I am trying to get a few unauthorized (3rd Party) apps on my phone, I am assuming you cannot use iTunes for this?

Patience is a virtue. You guys need to take a chill pill.
An exploit will come. If it doesn't, ah well. The iPhone is still a great phone without jailbreak. If you don't think so go grab a RAZR, you can still root that >_>#eli7e revived me

i didn't see it posted anywhere in the thread but how do you check which version boot a 3gs has?
EDIT: just saw this posted in the other thread related to this topic:
"To determine if your new 3GS is running the new bootrom, just check System Profiler while the phone is in DFU mode. Versions of iBoot prior to 359.3.2 should still be able to be jailbroken using known methods."

Just wait until peoples Appstore apps start calling for updates that can't run on their firmwares.

For what it's worth...
Geohot's blackra1n site mentioned that it was not working on "MC" models. The context seemed to be "MC" touch models, but I believe it applies to 3GS models as well. My 3GS purchased on release day is an "MC1377LL" and I am unable to pwn or blackra1n it.
It was JB on v3.0. At one point I was having performance problems and I reverted to non-JB v3.0. Subsequently, I upgraded to v3.1 and realized the doom I created for myself since I had not saved codes previously on Cydia. Recently updated to 3.1.2 as part of blackra1n method and found it not working. Tried pwnagetool and have the perpetual 1604 / 1600 errors.
So it seems "MC" model prefix is the kiss of death for JB...

ATT will usually allow you to renew early and get the subsidized price without actually waiting for the official renewal date. This might be a good idea if you want to make sure you get a jail breakable phone.

After scouting around, I checked out my iboot and noted it was a JB compat version (359.3). So, to hopefully be of help to others here was what I tried based on a comment thread I read on devteam (courtesy jeffrush / sand0s):
- 1604 error trying to load custom firmware created via pwnagetool 3.1.4 while in normal or recovery mode
- 1600 error trying to load same while in DFU mode
- blackra1n (Windows) would kick phone into recovery mode and sit there for 1+ min "running". Comes to the "you have been jailbroken, wait for reboot". Problem, no geohot image. Error log shows errors loading files to phone.
- Tried all of above with and without a USB hub (as I remember in past something about USB issues on Mac which where solved using a hub) .. no luck
Cause (for me):
- VMWare Fusion!!! Running Fusion on Mac with Vista 32bit. Tried as well with Fusion on Mac with Win 7 32 bit. Both cases same result.
Solution (for me):
- blackra1n for MAC!!!! Ran this and it finally worked as simple as many have bragged about. After this, I was able to restore custom firmware via iTunes piece of cake!
~4 hours of lost life on this one

I bought a 3Gs this weekend. It has the 3.1.2 firmware and is the MB (NOT MC) model.
No joy with blackra1n!

Perhaps someone with more experience can clarify if the model has any bearing whatsoever, or if it is only related to the iboot version. If I recall, the devteam site noted a known issue with IPT3 models beginning with MC - perhaps they've clarified to issue to be iboot related and not model prefix.
