Dev-Team Forced to Release iPhone 3GS Jailbreak

Now iPhone 3GS users have two jailbreaking solutions at their fingertips. Shortly after geohot (George Hotz) released his own jailbreak in the form of purplera1n, the Dev-Team released a new version of redsn0w for the iPhone 3GS.

As we previously reported here, geohot recommended that everyone with a 3GS follow specific steps to preserve their future ability to jailbreak. Turns out he wasn't content to wait for Dev-Team to release redsn0w for the 3GS.

iPhone 3GS: Keep Your Jailbreak Options Open

iPhone blogger George Hotz has discovered a new layer of security in the recently released iPhone 3GS. If you're waiting on iPhone Dev-Team to release a jailbreaking and/or unlocking solution for your iPhone 3GS, generating a unique certificate for your device could keep your options open.

Apple will likely release iPhone OS 3.0.1 soon, possibly postponing a jailbreak even longer. George Hotz explains the process of generating a certificate below.

How Can I Unlock My iPhone 3G?

If you're interested in using your iPhone 3G with any GSM mobile carrier the iPhone Dev-Team has the answer. Unlocking can also save a few bucks if you have AT&T and you're using your iPhone 3G outside of the US.

Using the latest release of ultrasn0w simplifies the process, but will only work with the iPhone 3G. Start out by making sure your iPhone 3G is updated to iPhone OS 3.0 and jailbroken with PwnageTool or redsn0w. T-Mobile users should disable 3G on their device.

iPhone Jailbreak Broken With iTunes 8.2 Update

The iPhone Dev-Team has confirmed that updating to iTunes 8.2 will make the current versions of QuickPwn and Pwnage Tool inoperable. They are warning users who wish to jailbreak iPhones to wait until the new versions of their tools are available before upgrading iTunes to the new version.

The Dev-Team plans to release updated jailbreaking software after Apple makes a public release of iPhone OS 3.0. An update to the unlocking software yellowsn0w will also have to wait.

DevTeam Issues Warning about Upgrading to iPhone OS 2.0.1

The announcement regarding the new version (2.0.2) of the iPhone Pwnage tool, which is presumably just hours away, brought with it the news that it would not contain an unlock for the new iPhone 3G. The DevTeam, however, has indicated they are still hard at work on developing an unlock for the new iPhone's 3G/GSM baseband and given their long record of success, one can only assume it is only a matter of time before the 3G unlock arrives.
