BREAKING: iPhone Firmware 3.0.1 Released

Share:

As expected, Apple has released iPhone Firmware 3.0.1 (7A400) which patches the SMS vulnerability that has been getting a lot of news lately.

The firmware update weighs in at 280MB and is available now through iTunes for the iPhone, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.

Remember to have the latest version of iTunes (8.2.1) installed.

3.0.1

Jailbroken/Unlocked iPhones

If you have a jailbroken and/or unlocked iPhone, you may still update to 3.0.1 and still have the ability to both jailbreak and unlock your device.

You may complete the update in iTunes to firmware 3.0.1 and then re-use redsn0w 0.8 to jailbreak your iPhone. Note however that when you run redsn0w 0.8, point redsn0w to the 3.0 firmware (make sure you have the right one for your device) instead of the 3.0.1 firmware when prompted for the firmware file.

After the jailbreak, you can still use ultrasn0w 0.9 to unlock your iPhone 3G/3GS (iPhone 2G users, your unlock is within redsn0w).

If you need further assistance and access to the 3.0 firmware files, you can use our Jailbreaking/Unlocking Guide here.

    So i wonder if hte Dev team will wait to release their JB for 3.1 again…

    Lets wait and see 😛

    LOL

    Does 3.0.1 break the IPCC hacks that enable tethering?

  • Not that I have seen.
    I can confirm that is does not break the Mobile Config profile download for tethering

  • Surprisingly there is no word from the dev team on their site or any of their Twitter accounts. These guys are normally one step ahead of Apple.

    I'm holding off for now.

    Noob question. Will updating to the firmware 3.1 from 3.0 erase my mp3s and what not?

  • No. All of your media is saved in iTunes. Just be sure to click “Update” in iTunes instead of “Restore”.

    So, looks like redsn0w 0.8 will jailbreak OS 3.0.1. No official word yet, but worked for me.

  • I noticed that as well, but I think it's safer to wait for an “official” notice before making it really mainstream.

  • rorypiper

    It has already been posted in Cydia, under “Updating to 3.0.1”, nothing on the Dev Team's blog yet.

    no need to wait.

    Firmware 3.0.1 Jailbreak & Unlock still possible!

    So I can simply update my iTunes to 8.2.1 and update via iTunes to 3.0.1 and not require to re- jailbreak or unlock?

    Or I have to do everything again once I updated to 3.0.1?

  • Update iTunes
    Update iPhone to 3.0.1
    Jailbreak using redsn0w but use the 3.0 IPSW file instead of 3.0.1 when redsn0w asks.

  • Justin

    Cool. Will try later. Thank You.

    Watch out for timezone setting, this update will turn it ON and all your calendar and emails will have the wrong time, you will need to go to change the timezone setting to OFF on the iPhone

  • itsikromano

    Watch out for timezone setting change after the upgrade

    emails and calendar will be off

    you will need to change your setting on the iPhone to turn tezone setting OFF

    Do hold off.

  • Dusty

    Crappy dude! Thanks for the heads up. Maybe it was a bad restore? Try again…

    Hi
    I have one of the early 3GS iphones with Rogers which so far i have not jailbroken or unlocked.
    i have updated via Itunes to 3.01 which i gather is ok. I am still using Itunes 8.21
    I have the files mentioned above eg redsnow 0.8 and the CORRECT 3.0 hardware file downloaded with firefox
    Can I still jailbreak with Redsnow 0.8 and unlock with Ultrasnow even though the newest iphone update is 3.12.
    I thought i read some where that when I connect to Itunes it wont allow a 3.0 custom restore file to run??
    Any help would be appreciated

  • If you still have the previous firmware, I think you can.

    Refer to the dev team blog.

    Thanks very much for your response
    I have been all over the dev team Blog and can not find a reference to being able to use a prevoius firmware (3.0)
    I have found something on the Hackintosh site that suggest itunes wont allow using a previous version and it apparently screwed his iphone??
    I am hoping that if I disconnect my internet service and do the work with Itunes 8.21 I may be OK
