Thread: Was there anything new in the redsn0w jb compared to purplera1n?

  1. #1
    Default Was there anything new in the redsn0w jb compared to purplera1n?
    i jb my 3gs with purplera1n rc1, and it works perfectly fine. push, sms, wifi all work. cydia hasn't given me any issues.

    i'm wondering if redsn0w brings anything new? cuz i really didn't have a problem with purplera1n crashing or freezing or anything...


    looking at this thread redsn0w really isn't doing so hot...

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it
    And no, they use the same exploit so they are the same.

    The reason people are saying that Purplera1n Rc2 is better than Rc1 is because it's a more stable version that also injects the kernel patches for mobilesubstrate and winterboard. Rc1 did not have those patches.

    In my own opinion Purplera1n Rc2 seams to be the way to go if you plan on jailbreaking. I've read many people's complaints with redsn0w and I myself tried them both just to compare the two. With redsn0w (which took me two tries to finish the jailbreak) I was having problems with cydia so I just did a full DFU restore and then ran Purplera1n Rc2 and was back jailbroken in 4 minutes!

    If winterboard isn't working all you have to do is simply download Purplera1n Rc2 and run it over Rc1 you dont have to restore to run Rc2 which is very nice.
