iPhone 3GS Jailbreak/Unlock Confirmed By Dev Team!

Share:

Early in the morning the iPhone Dev Team updated their blog with some good news! Read below for what they had to say:

24Kpwn lives on, in the iPhone 3GS!
About 5 hours ago (Thursday evening, less than a week after the 3GS launch), we were able to verify that the 24Kpwn exploit that the hybrid team used on the iPod Touch 2G is still present in the bootrom of the iPhone 3GS. That means we can apply the same sort of technique used by our current redsn0w tool to jailbreak and unlock the iPhone 3GS.

This is great news! It seems this bootrom was cut in about the August 2008 timeframe, so the unfortunate early reveal of 24Kpwn earlier this year didn’t affect the iPhone 3GS.

For our technical notes on where the 24Kpwn exploit is in the 3GS, see here (pastebin hash of it is here). Our original blog post for when this exploit was first found is here.

And yes, ultrasn0w will be able to be used on the iPhone 3GS for you unlockers!

Important: Apple has not given up on the cat&mouse game, and in fact there are challenging aspects of the 3GS jailbreak that aren’t in the other devices. It’ll take some time to safely work these into our tools, but the fundamental weaknesses are there: The bootrom is exploitable via 24Kpwn, and the baseband is exploitable via ultrasn0w. (And just like with the 3G, ultrasn0w for 3GS requires that you not update your baseband when Apple comes out with new firmware.)

In a nutshell, there is a hardware-based exploit that the iPhone Dev Team has confirmed that will allow the use of redsn0w to jailbreak and ultrasn0w to unlock the iPhone 3GS! This is amazing considering the iPhone 3GS was released a week ago.

This is great news because a jailbroken iPhone 3GS will lead to even more tweaks and little tricks! Yahooo! Here are some notes below that you can decipher for me. Well done Dev Team!

    This is good news.

    I was wondering… since many people including myself are very new to the iPhone scene (the 3GS is my first one), if someone could provide or post links to a good tutorial on what is ultrasn0w, redsn0w, cydia, icy, etc.

    I’ve just been reading about options the last couple days and I think because I’ve been out of the loop for so long, things are mighty confusing and having something to read that caters to me would be very helpful 🙂

    I suppose we could wait until something is released for the 3gs though…

    exciting!

    Thanks!

    I am using the redsn0w 0.72, the waiting to reboot screen has been the same for about 35mins and I am starting to get worried. What if it doesnt boot back up? What are my options in restoring the 3gs back to running condition?

    this is somethign I have not been able to figure out for the past day. Some sites report that the current software is compatible with the 3GS while others state that the new program(s) are soon to come out…
