iPhone 3G Jailbreaked: Pwnage Tool Coming This Week?

Share:

For those waiting on fence and thinking about whether or not to buy an iPhone 3G, good news is around the corner. As you may have already heard, the iPhone Dev Team has already jailbreaked the iPhone 3G and will be releasing their Pwnage tool later this week.

What does this mean to everyday consumers? Jailbreaking means you will be allowed to install non-Apple software on your iPhone. Installer will be making a comeback it seems!

Check out the video of the world’s first jailbreaked iPhone 3G:


World’s 1st Jailbroken 3G Phone from iphonedev on Vimeo

Also, the world’s first unlocked iPhone 3G has been accomplished by folks in Brazil. How? They have used a wafer thin chip that “tricks” the SIM card into thinking it’s a test card. Then, voila! Your iPhone 3G is unlocked. Check this video for more (it’s not in English…anyone care to translate?):

The cat and mouse game between Apple and the iPhone community seems to be in full swing, yet again. If you recall, I unlocked my first generation iPhone myself on 1.1.1 firmware, and then eventually upgraded from 1.1.1 to 1.1.4.

One of the benefits of buying a Rogers iPhone 3G is that when new firmware updates are released by Apple, you can just update in iTunes instead of doing the whole jailbreak/activate/unlock thing. Unlocking the iPhone was a lot of fun and challenging at time, but it can be nerve wracking if it’s your first time!

iPhone 3G Battery Update

So it seems like my iPhone 3G’s battery is messed up. I thought maybe it was just a bad day yesterday, but today confirmed that my battery seems to have a mind of its own. After 8 hours of standby and 3 hours of light usage, the “20% battery remaining” pop up appeared! So I called Rogers iPhone 3G customer care, explained my situation (which the guy didn’t want to believe) and finally convinced the CSR that something was wrong.

Long story short, they are sending me a new replacement 8GB iPhone 3G via courier, and it should be here by the end of the week (fingers crossed). How is battery life coming along for all you iPhone 3G owners? Anyone with similar issues?

    wow george
    what first gen did u have

    the 3g sucks a lot of power due to 3g, wifi, brightness, location services, turn these off or low if not using them and notice the difference!

    i have a new 3G iphone.
    on my old iphone i could turn off data access “edge” by going into the setting and deleting/changing the log-in “internet.com” i would change it to intenet/coN. so no access. so i could minimize my data downloads/charges.

    but with the new 3G iphone there does not seem to be this setting… so one always gets data. unless one is on wi-fi access. if one is out of rogers territory i.e. in the US…one can turn off data roaming but within canada one always will be downloading data unless on wi-fi or has the phone turned off.

    so if you have reached your limit you’re screwed

    anyone noticed this or better yet have workaround?

  • are you just getting a replacement battery? or the whole phone? Will you have to send yours back and be without for a while?

    I definitely won’t be one of the first to jailbreak my new phone… very risky if it bricks, as it won’t be covered under warranty. Can’t just go to the US and buy a new one like the “good old days”!!! At least not yet… 😀

    Just called Fido and found out that there is not way for them to restrict data download from the Edge network, which we they can charge me if I want to simply check for the weather (not looking for live feed since sync up an hour ago with wifi) or check or read emails. Thing is whenever you initiate email, or weather, etc., iPhone wants to connect but I don’t want it to have access unless I’m on Wifi. So question is, anyone know I way on the iPhone to fix this problem. I know a hacked iPhone can use the tool called “Service” where one can turn the Edge radio off or something. Anything on the Applications in iTunes that does this?

    2 questions:

    1- do we know when 2.0 will be unlock for first gen iphone?
    2- I took the 6gb/$30 plan with my first gen iPhone? I assumed that this plan is data regardless of 3G or edge. Am I right?

    Location services has to do with the phone’s ability to track where you are for certain applications, ie. GPS. Or at least I think that’s what it is.

    Is there anyway to turn 3g off on the iphone so that the only way to go on the internet is via wifi? I am going to buy the iphone but not interested in buying a data plan. The rogers employee warned me that if I go online via wifi, but all of a sudden the connection breaks, the iphone seemlessly switches to 3g and theres no way of telling, which could easily give me a $1000 bill. I want to avoid this and all help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Must be some geniuses out there who can help…..

    Thanks guys!!

    I don’t think that you have a battery issue. It seems like your plight is pretty common amongst many of us iPhone peeps. Turn 3G off and set your push settings to longer and Bluetooth off when you’re not using it and you should save some battery life. Regardless I’m charging it everyday. 3G drains battery big time though

    My understanding is it is only for the new Iphone. But I went to rogers yesterday and they will sell it to you for any phone, I didn’t tell them I had a unlocked iphone I told it was for a Blackberry which uses the same service.

    Still have to sign up for 3 years though…

    Kudos to Darren for bringing it up in his post (although slightly off-topic):
    Without a data plan, any data sent/received to/from your iphone is billed at 5 cents/kb. If you were to use say, the 400kb of data available Rogers’ cheapest plan, without a plan, it would cost you approximately $20,000. That’s a pretty messed-up phone bill.
    I also talked to a Rogers customer service rep and he said the same thing: if the wifi connection breaks, it’ll switch seamelessly to 3G, which will cost quite a bit, especially since you wont know of this due to it’s “seamelessness”.
    I’d much preffer a “connection lost” message than a $20,000 phone bill.
    Any ideas?

    MY DATA DISABLING VIA ROGERS:
    not sure how fido handles it…but i called rogers the second i turned on my iphone…they disabled 3g and edge…i disabled edge on my iphone as well to be safe…SMS works fine…and if i try to connect when i am not near wifi…the phone says it cannot connect…which confirms rogers DID actually disable my internet

    If you disabled 3G and not edge, does that mean that it’s possible to be connected to the internet unknowingly? Or does that not work on Rogers’ networks at all. Did you use the ipod function much? I’m expecting to pretty much be using my iphone as an ipod with phone capability.

    the actual iphone only gives you the ability to disable 3g which is a nice 2nd safeguard…but when i called rogers i asked them to disable both 3g and edge to make sure i do not connect at all….i tested it at my work where there is no wifi available…tried connecting to safari…no luck! and tried gps, also no go! which meant that rogers actually did what they said they would do! hahahaha

    disabling 3g on the actual phone (it is one of the settings) is just a backup in case rogers doesn’t turn it off properly.

    just as a side not…the phone is ABSOLUTELY amazing..all i had before was a touch….i found a way to manipulate itunes to allow me to make my own ringtones too!!!

    Yeah, every safeguard possible against Rogers pirateing away my money is quite wonderful. Glad to hear you find the phone amazing.

    i found something on utube where you manipulate a few files and make your own ringtune from your mp3…i didn’t pay itunes a penny!!!! works like a charm…i can customize which 30 seconds i want of the song too…nothing like having the solo to cherub rock by the pumpkins to be your ringtune!!!

    Justin, about 2 years ago I called Fido and had them ‘block’ Edge data access. I made absolutely sure that I couldn’t incur ‘accidental’ data charges and this was the wording they needed. I just called up today at lunch and one of the things I did was verify that this was still the case. (Which it is; data is still blocked for me)

    ‘Block edge/data/internet access’. That should do it for you.

    So if Roger can disable 3G and Edge, why can’t Fido. Must bug Fido customer service again.

    Hmmmm, being able to disable 3G on the iPhone is a great safeguard…never trust Rogers with anything. However, i heard that on the first gen iPhone there was an installer app called “Settings,” which could apparently turn EDGE off…if it works for the iPhone 3G it would be a HUGE plus.

    Also, if I take the SIM card out from the iPhone and insert it in another Rogers cellphone, would everything on the other cellphone work? Would all the apps on the iPhone work without a SIM card, other than the phone feature itself? Finally, when the SIM card is taken out of the iPhone, does EDGE/3G/Wifi work? If someone could test this it would be EXTREMELY appreciated.

    Thanks

    wish the “Service” Software is in iTunes App, so I can installed it. You need a hack iPhone to get “Service” to disable Edge.

    The 3G battery is a joke, I run out of battery by 7pm , and when I have my 2G iPhone the battery would last for 2 day before i had to charge it. and I dont even use 3G that much, I check my email if I’m on the road but that is, the rest of the time its turned of. Hope they fix that issue in the next firmware update.

    So… If I signed up for the 6Gb data plan… with the new iPhone 3G… are ALL data connections (besides wifi) covered by this or is the EDGE system diferent? Will I get a different charge if my iPhone access the EDGE system?

    Pwnage Tool 2.0 was just released a few hours ago. I was able to update my firware on my 1st gen iPhone, to 1.2.0, and then unlock, jailbreak, and activate. The new tool is very easy to use. It worked the first time for me. It is currently only for Mac OS X.

    Oh yeah, I should mention this tool will NOT unlock the iPhone 3G, but will Jailbreak it. This is something they are still working on. This tool will mainly be useful for 1st gen iPhone owners and iPod Touch owners. iPod Touch owners will get the 2.0 software without have to pay $10 in iTunes!!.

    Fido disabled both 3G and Edge for me. I don’t get any data charges and just use wireless when it’s available.

    Everything else works fine. GPS stills works but you have to have the current map in your cache. I really hope someone can fix it so you can save maps somehow.

    That’s awesome, I’m glad it’s possible. I wish you could save maps too, because that makes gps usable if you dont want data….
