    What happened to the jailbreak that people (including yourself) said would be out when the ipad 3g is released?

    I thought that covered 3.1.3

    I saw a 4.0 beta jailbreak this morning on twitter (from Musclenerd), is the exploit used there unusable on the 3.1.3? I'd assume you would want to support as many devices as possible after using up an exploit.

    EDIT: Nevermind, reading up on the twitter post it seems it's an old exploit

    Yeah,I thought the 3.2 JB for the iPad was supposed to also encompass 3.1.3. If that's not the case, wow. I realize 3.1.3 sucks but so many of us are stuck on it

    dude I think we are almost forced to sell our 3gs and by a 4g
    ** I don't hate myself anymore I have a JB iphone

    Yep that is what I thought.

    I was under the impression that the 'spirit' jailbreak that is to be released once the ipad 3g is in the shops would jailbreak the iphone 3gs on 3.1.3 with the new bootrom.

    Can anyone confirm if this is the case or not?

    Ok you guys need to understand the bigger picture here. First of all... 3.1.3 has been jailbroken all along for older devices such as the iPhone 3G and IPT 2G and the 3GS with the old bootrom. It's people with the newer devices with the new bootrom that can't jailbreak 3.1.3. If the Devs released a jailbreak for the new bootrom 3.1.3 like Apple has wanted then there would be a very small amount of people in the jailbreak community benefiting. iBoot exploits (untethered jailbreaks) are MUCH harder to find and develop then something like a tethered blackra1n. Because of this the Dev community did the smart thing and is holding this exploit for a couple months (no big deal).. so the ENTIRE jailbreak community can have an untethered 4.0 jailbreak on ALL devices. It's quite possible that if the Devs had released a 3.1.3 jailbreak that it would take a REALLY long time to find another one after 4.0 came out. Finally... it's proposed that since this same exploit works on the iPad that it will also work on the upcoming iPhone.

    In conclusion... for the minority of people that bought their phone on 3.1.3 or were forced to upgrade.. or get a warranty phone.. or whatever the reason may be.. you are a TINY group of people in the overall scheme of things and to sacrifice not being able to jailbreak or use your phone at all for a couple months so that everyone can enjoy a jailbreak in the end is not too much to ask. Stop complaining.

    No one in the thread was complaining from what I can see, merely discussing the issue.

    My earlier question still stands.

    Will the "spirit" jailbreak that many respected people in the scene have said will more than likely be released before the end of the month when the ipad 3gs is released, jailbreak the new bootrom 3gs on 3.1.3 ?

    From Posixninja's blog

    "Also, today I mentioned on my twitter that I can almost guarantee an exploit for 3.1.3/3.2 (all devices, and all models!) before the end of the month. I would strongly advise everyone to keep a close eye on Geohot's blog for updates in the near future"

    Poseidon, I would disagree about how small a group we are. And based on the posts here our numbers grow every day . I don't think we were complaining. I think we were expressing a little dismay that what had seemed to be a coming patch release date that would fix us is apparently not going to happen. Surely we're allowed a little sadness about that fact.

    The problem is the "plan" changes day to day.


    I have heard rumors that geohot will release a new jailbreak (soon) that does everything so everyone else wants to hold back. But geohot is not that reliable when it comes to serving the needs of all. So who knows what he is going to release. The only thing I know is the new name, and it's really lame.

    I am very surprised he hasn't released anything yet.
    This whole situation is perfect for a Geohot to come bursting in like Mighty Mouse and shout "here I come to save the day" and boost his swelling ego that little bit more.

    Well... let's hope geohot gives us something

    waiittt did you just say u can jailbreak old bootrom 3gs 3.1.3??!!
    cause im on 3.1.3 with old bootrom and can jailbreak for ****

    Wow poseidon is right I did have 3.1.3 on my 3GS and no jailbreak I didn't care because you have to sacrifice something to gain something bigger. Or they can release it and then apple will patch it for the 4G. Then when all of you run out and get ur new iPhone in June don't complain about why isn't the 4G jailbreak out yet? So choose shut up and don't complain and get your 4.0 jailbreak very soon after release or get your 3.1.3 jailbreak and bit*h and complain later.
