Thread: Jailbreaking 3GS?

  1. #1
    Default Jailbreaking 3GS?
    EDIT!
    Some of us have now decided to donate money to the Dev Team for all their hardwork. They of course won't take money, but together we can help provide a couple new iPhones for them the work with (3GS of course!) Please see the below post:

    Donate a iPhone 3GS

    Below is my original post:

    Hey guys,
    Just thought I would post here for someone to clarify.

    I've been reading that there is no jailbreak as of yet for the 3GS. I was just wondering why that is. Isnt the 3GS running the same operating system as all the other 3.0 iphones out there now?

    I'm assuming something must be different. Does anyone happen to know what that is? I guess there is no rush or anything, but I look forward to jailbreaking the 3GS like my touch

    Yes the 3GS is running the same OS but it has different hardware specs and other features. I would assume that is why.

    New hardware. The hardware + OS = vulnerabilities, ones that the dev team were finding/using. Since it's a new platform for the OS to be operating on, they'll have to obtain a 3G(s) to poke & prod, till they find what they need to allow the jailbreaking.

    The problem right now is that there are only a few of the devs who actually have a 3GS. Many don't qualify for an upgrade or are on an unofficial carrier. I have a line on my business account that still qualifies for an upgrade. I am putting some cash together to donate it. It takes a lot of people working the jailbreak to make it happen quickly.

    Just a thought....

    I would think that there is a way to enable some of the 3GS software on the 3G. For example, I don't think there is any hardware constraints to using the voice control app on a 3G, except for speed (which may be a constraint in of itself). I would guess there would be somewhere in the 3.0 OS to enable this feature on the 3G.

    ^ Its not in the 3G firmware at all. I might be able to be transferred from the 3GS firmware once its jailbroken

    We should donate loads of 3GS's to the devs lol.. So it looks like a case of weeks rather than days

    ^ There are so many members here, if everyone donated a dollar we could buy several dozen 3GS's for the devs. I am willing to throw down $25.00

    Im willing to donate for a 3GS jailbreak, Its the simple things i miss most like cyntact..

    Totally off topic is ibluetooth working on 3.0? Surprised there hasnt been many complaints about file transfer still not being on the 3gs or 3.0

    iBluetooth is not working on 3.0, at least it wasn't on the betas. It will launch but it won't connect to my macbook.

    I am thinking about setting up a donation page for that reason.
