Thread: Apple Releases 3.0.1 Update! SMS Hack Fixed!

  1. #341
    Default 2g Help?
    I have a 2G that's already jailbroken. I'm using 3.0, how do I go about updating the 3.0.1?

    Do I just load up the latest Itunes and select the download function?

  2. #342
    Select upgrade in iTunes. This will break your JB and you will lose your cydia apps (so backup first) then just RedSn0w again.

    Restore to 3.01 and use RedSn0w.
    Or take the risk and stay on 3.0

    How do I restore btw? Thats all I need to know.

  9. #348
    In iTunes just click 'Restore'

    After it is done you will need to sync everything back from iTunes -that's what takes the time, and re-installing everything from cydia.
    Do not be tempted to restore from a backup!

    Did it work on 3.0? Or have you restored from a backup made in 2.xx?

    I dont get it, that SMS hack has never came on Thursday. Or will it come a day we dont know? I just see this as a waste, Im going to stay with 3.0 till a newer firmware than 3.1 is out. I will take the risk if its still vulnerable, worst case scenario I can just format my iphone and get the 3.1 firmware. But thanks for your assistance in JBing my phone for 3.1.

    This is how I feel also. I posted a question on this thread asking is this really necessary to update to or not. I was on vacation and when I got back I saw this thread. One guy replied that why would you not update since a new FW was released. Well, when 3.0 came out many people did not update right away from 2.x.x. And on the first page of this thread, Update#1 was crossed out, does that mean that if you are currently JBroken on 3.0 and you update to 3.0.1, your JBreak will still be intact, or do you still have to do the entire process like normal? I really dont feel like updating to 3.0.1, jailbreak using redsnow (since it appears that purplerain does not work??), and reinstall everything that will be lost just to update to a viturally meaningless update.

    If I am WAY off base, someone plese straighten me out. If I REALLY need to update and re-jailbreak, of course I will, but I dont want to if the update is so minor that the hack will never affect the masses.

    You can do an update from 3.0 to 3.01 and will have to JB again using FW3.0 ipsw
    You will lose all your cydia apps unless you use pkgbackup but won't lose any app store stuff.
    I do not know if the SMS hack will become a problem but I'd rather not risk it.

    Thanks. I thought so (about lossing everything post update and about the hack). Maybe this weekend I will update and re-JBreak, just dont have time during the week.

    Some people are having a problem with 3g and edge uses after jailbreaking 3.0.1. If you don't jailbreak its fine so Apple isn't going to edit it any but with a jailbreak it doesn't work. So its really not worth it right now and at that it does fix the sms bug but you'd have to tick someone off really bad to have them go THAT far to eat u up

    There was no "hack" being released on Thursday. There never was one. All they did was publicly release how a hacker could get into a phone by exposing a vulnerability on the SMS input or whatever it was.

    So now, any good hacker knows how to get in on the phone and could potentially make something to kill it if they're so inclined.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.
