Dev Team’s Jalbreak for iPhone 3GS Released

It ‘s only a few days after the first jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS was released, the iPhone Dev Team has now made available updated versions of its jailbreak and unlock tools, that will now work on the 3GS.

What’s old is new again

Last night we released updated versions of our redsn0w jailbreak and ultrasn0w carrier unlock.  These versions are now compatible with the iPhone 3GS running at 3.0.  Welcome aboard, 3GS owners!  (The tools of course remain compatible with all of the other platforms too.)   Also last night, saurik released 3GS-compatible versions of MobileSubstrate and WinterBoard, components that enable many different add-ons and themes.

The Dev Team had previously stated they would hold off on releasing these updated versions until after Apple released their OS 3.1 update, so that Apple would not have time to patch the ‘hole ‘ these tools use to jailbreak the iPhone with “ but once Purplera1n (the other 3GS jailbreak released days ago by GeoHot and others) was out there and using the same vulnerability, there was no longer any point in holding back.

We realize we upset some folks (e.g. existing 3GS owners) with our earlier announcement that we wanted to hold onto the 3GS iBoot-family hole until 3.1 was out.  Our aim there was to get as many people as possible onboard (within reason of course) before revealing the hole, since Apple will fix it immediately.  But all of that became moot when the purplera1n release was made, since it uses the same hole.

If I was still in a jailbreaking frame of mind, I would be very glad to see the Dev Team ‘s jailbreak tools for the 3GS “ but for now, I ‘m going to stay on the ‘stock ‘ side of the fence.

For those of you who are looking to jailbreak your 3GS, check out the Dev Team ‘s blog post HERE “ for all the relevant instructions, warnings, details, advice specific to unlockers, and download links.
