“Purplera1n” is no “Redsn0w”

UPDATE (July 7th, 2009): A new version of the iPhone Dev Team‘s “redsn0w” has been released. It now now has support for the iPhone 3GS. Winterboard has also been upgraded to work on the 3GS. Go get redsn0w here.

Happy Sunday everyone. RoryPiper here. We here at iPhone in Canada, are strong supporters of the iPhone Dev Team and all work they do, but I decided to “take one for the team”, and try out the Purplera1n jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS, that was released by GeoHot a few days ago. This was obviously released too soon, as it has already had one update, and is still buggy. Purplera1n works similar to RedSn0w, as in it doesn’t create a custom firmware, so there is no restore needed. This jailbreak is no RedSn0w or Quickpwn, so please read this entire article, before trying it out for yourself.

The instructions are pretty straight forward:

Download purplera1n. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes. Make sure you have a copy of your 3.0 firmware. Connect your iPhone 3GS. Quit iTunes. Run purplera1n. Click “Make it Rain”. Shortly after that, purplera1n will say “Done, wait for reboot”, and you should see the purplera1n screen on your iPhone, until it reboots. Then open “Freeze”, and install Cydia from there.

Sure, that sounds easy, but I gotta say, it was a bit of a nightmare. First off, Purplera1n is only for Windows right now. Instant fail, for me, but I trudged on. (UPDATE: a Mac OS X version has been released!) My first attempt was on Vista, via Boot Camp, on my iMac: Nope. Purplera1n froze during “Done, wait for reboot”, and my iPhone was stuck in recovery mode. I had read that this might happen, so I was slightly prepared. Still, seeing that USB cord with the iTunes logo on my screen is always scary!

After a restore (damn it!), I switched to my MacBook, running Windows XP, via Boot Camp: Success! Everything seemed to have gone as planned. I got Cydia installed, but not everything was working. As far as the phone itself goes, all is fine. There had been some reports of WiFi failing after this jailbreak, but mine is working. I gotta say, Cydia runs so nice on the iPhone 3GS. Very quick and responsive. Feels like a native iPhone App.

I tried to install a few of my favourite Cydia apps. Here’s how it went:

Winterboard: I read that this wasn’t working, but I thought I would give it a try. It completely crashed the springboard and put the iPhone in safe mode, but uninstalling fixed it right away. No Winterboard will most likely be a “deal breaker” for most. This means no customization: themes, SMS tones, LockBackground wallpaper, nothing. Other visible mods, like Five Icon Dock, are working fine, but anyting that needs Winterboard, will not work.

IMG_0028 IMG_0029 IMG_0009

OpenSSH: Nope. Could not get into the iPhone. My FTP program seemed to connect with my iPhone, but then I would get this message: “Fatal: Cannot initialize SFTP on server”. Boo.

SBSettings: this actually works great, so far. It is very responsive on the iPhone 3GS.

IMG_0008

screenshot_01Installd Patch / Appsync: You need one of these, if you are using hacked apps. I installed “Installd” first, but iTunes would not install any of my apps onto the iPhone. Kept giving my errors. I then tried “Appsync”, and I was was able to sync once, but subsequent tries have failed. iTunes says it cannot install, due to an unknown error. Not sure why it only worked once, and never again.

IMG_0027Notifier: This app gives you tiny icons in your status bar, notifying you of new email, texts, and phone calls. Works great, with this jailbreak.

So, that was my experience with Purplera1n. I would definitely recommend waiting for the iPhone Dev Team to release their new tools, wether it be a new RedSn0w or a new Quickpwn. The new tools will include a jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS, and should be released shortly after iPhone firmware 3.1 is out.  If you have never done a jailbreak before, please do not use Purplera1n. I would hate for this to be your first experience with jailbreaking, as the Dev Team does it so much better.

If you have any questions about my “experience”, please post in the comments below. If I missed your favourite 3rd party app, let me know. I’ll try it out, and post the results. Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, and check out my blog, Green Candy. See you next week!!

    Well I was thinking about jailbreaking with purplera1n but now I’m not so sure. Does voipover3g work? That and sbsetting are the only real reasons I have to jailbreak with my 3GS. And when is 3.1 rumored to be released?

    Thanks,

    I went ahead and jailbroke my 3GS anyway and voipover3G does not seem to be working with the latest version of skype. After the jailbreak i get an error message when opening skype telling me that skype only works with unmodified versions of 2.2 and 3.0. When I try to make a call the app simply closes; both over 3G and wifi. So skype no longer works for me at all. Fail number 1. Also, when I open the app store app and the iTunes app they both open and immediately close. Fail number 2.

    If anyone else is having similar issues let me know. In the
    mean time, I’m going to see if I can fix these errors. I’ll report back if I find a fix of some sort.

    Purlera1n is okay. I installed it from XP on my MacBook. It did the JB in about 45 seconds. I got what I needed – the Five Icon Dock, SB Settings. Hey, I’m at the point after doing this for a couple of years, of really not needing a jailbreak the way I once did. As for the Dev-Team, too many caveats and no-no’s. I’m really tired of a set of restrictions that now parallels many of the complaints about Apple.

    I an running the purplera1n RC2. Install was a breeze. OpenSSH _works_. So does the appsync. Backgrounder ability to install IPAs is all I need, and this JB works great for that. Ran it on Windows 7 x64 with “XP SP3” mode enabled. Breeeeeze.

    From my experience, whenever I try stuff like this it always ends up bad on my end and then I regret it. So i’m going to just wait for the official dev team jailbreak to be released. I’d rather avoid problems on my iphone 3gs. Great guide though! Thanks!

    I’m still on the fence on whether to jailbreak much less unlock. Either way I’m not doing anything until the Dev Team release something. I’ve been reading endless pages of people having issues with this process.

    Plus the fact that it is a Windows only hack???? I think that is a sign the Geo doesn’t have the resources and experience the Dec Team has.

  • Thanks for everyone’s feedback. I am able to install IPA’s again. I uninstalled Appsync, rebooted, re-installed Appsync, rebooted again, now it works fine. Haven’t tried OpenSSH again. Without Winterboard, I don’t have a reason to SSH into my iPhone. I’ll just wait for Dev Team tools.

    I think part of your frustrations was trying it on systems that were still buggy and known as buggy…It seems to work great on windows XP but the rest is up in the air.

    Also, winterboard not working is not a jailbreak problem, but a problem with winterboard itself. Once winterboard is updated it will work again. (Source http://thebigboss.org/2009/07/03/iphone-3gs-geohot-jailbreak-posted/)

    Any way.. if you’re on winXP I wouldn’t be to afraid of this jailbreak, the rest… well maybe 😛

    Again, thanks for taking one for the team. I love iPhone, love Canada and hate Apple. It’s unfortunate that patience is lost in the attempt to gain the glory of being the first to jailbreak the iPhone 3Gs. This appears to be the fork in the road where competition joins the race. The Dev Team were doing a fantastic job with quality output, and all we had to do was wait a bit. Could any of you quick jailbreakers, who just can’t wait, manufacture something like Dev Team and make it work? This feels like the crotch in the tree where Apple and Microsoft split. This guy can wait for quality and will not support fame. Go Dev Team, and thank you.

    Towardds RoryPiper, its Not that PurpleRa1n is not RedSn0w its more to do wtih the fact that the Jailbroken Apps are not written to function on the 3gS yet they are all written for the 3G phone (or the older phone everyone calls 2G)

    now that the 3GS is jailbroken we should hopefully see updates to winterboard and voipover3G and a few of the other commonly downloaded apps that we know and love.
