iPhone 3GS: 3.1 Firmware Jailbroken By Dev Team!

We have some awesome new for all you iPhone 3GS users out there. As you may already know, 3.1 firmware for the iPhone 3GS has not been jailbroken yet. This has led to a test of patience for iPhone 3GS users who have resisted updating to 3.1 firmware (and staying on 3.0 or 3.0.1).

3.1 Firmware on the iPhone 3GS Has Been Successfully Jailbroken

You read that correctly folks! 3.1 firmware on the iPhone 3GS has successfully been jailbroken, according to the latest tweet by cpich3g, an official iPhone Dev Team member. He sent out this tweet earlier:

3gs 3.0 pwned->3.1 pwned. Props to Musclenerd, Wizdaz and thanks Bumble-Bee & ToddJG for testing. tinyurl.com/y8sr4p3 tinyurl.com/y8z277l

Further to my last post, the 3gs 3.1 jailbreak does not apply to OTB or non-downgradable 3.1 device.

So that means, if your iPhone 3GS is on 3.1 brand new out of the box, or you already updated to 3.1 firmware, you’re outta luck (and 3rd Gen iPod Touches-thanks RP!). Included in the tweet was the following two screenshots:

What does this mean? It means updated versions of PwnageTool and redsn0w should be released shortly by the iPhone Dev Team! They usually don’t give ETA’s on release dates, but I have a hunch we can expect to see something come within the next week or earlier!

I’ve been patiently waiting with my iPhone 3GS on 3.0 firmware. Once the jailbreak tool comes for 3.1 on the 3GS I’ll be updating immediately!
