    Default purplera1n vs. redsn0w on 3GS with 3.0.0, post 3.1?
    Hey guys,
    so I have a 3GS with 3.0.0 firmware and I wanna jailbreak
    At this point I realize I don't have much to lose since I don't have the Ecid hash. I don't care about the unlock because i have att.
    If I am reading it right, worst case scenario something goes wrong and I have to update to 3.1 via apple and wait for the 3.1 exploit, right?

    So which tool should I use, redsn0w or purplera1n? Purplera1n doesn't seem to need to do the pre-jailbreak restore that redsn0w needs? According to the iClarified tut, you have to restore before jailbreaking, this of course isn't possible in the 3.1/ no 3.0 signing atmosphere.

    The only reason I ask is because I have read that the purplera1n isn't as stable a release as snow. Geohot even admitted that somewhere I believe.


    Thanks guys

    You dont have your ecid backed up? Well, if you update to 3.1 you are screwed and wont be able to jailbreak then. Maybe forever.

    Purplera1n is simple to use and works fine.
