iPhone 3Gs Jailbreak: Purplera1n

The amazing Geohot has recently released his purplera1n iPhone 3Gs jailbreak! Check it out on his blog, or head straight to the website to grab your own copy.

Anyway, I had the privilege of working with him and westbaer (and the rest of the chronic dev team) on the Mac version of purplera1n, which we released a few hours ago. It works very well, and requires no interaction with the iPhone at all! Even better, you can use the iPhone Dev Team’s ultrasn0w for an iPhone 3Gs unlock!

So, enjoy your jailbreak, and if you appreciated my work on the Mac version, feel free to donate!

By the way, we’re working on a new interface for it… The original interface looked like this, but we wanted it to be consistent across platforms ;)

    Greeting from Canada – Awesome – will try and let you know of any problems, but I’ve been reading that some folks have been having problems with WiFi after installing ultransn0w. Will donate if all is fine.

    Is the IPSW file for 3G and 3GS the same? If not I was wondering if you know of a link to the 3GS 3.0 IPSW?

    Thanks for the wonderful app!

    I did a JB on my 3GS on July 7th with Purplera1n Mac version. Everything appeared to have gone smoothly. Installed apps, wifi, phone, email and text all working.

    However, I just noticed my phone and my iMac are no longer paired via bluetooth.

    They had been paired prior. I use the app Things for mac and have the iphone app as well. They sync via bluetooth.

    Starting from scratch, removing any past pairing info from both the phone and the iMac. The phone cannot discover the iMac but the iMac can discover the phone. From the iMac to the phone I go through the pairing process. It all appears to work. They pair for like a second then disconnect. I can then reconnect them for a second using the iMac or the phone but it always disconnects.

    Could this be a side effect of the JB?

  14. 3GSad says:

    You know what, forget it. I am an idiot.

    I’ve been playing with this phone too much. It was not a bluetooth issue. They connect via WiFi. I just figured it out.

    You can delete these comments. Sorry…

    Worked fine for me on 3GS.

  21. We also learned the pricing could be a bit higher than our recently
    raised expectation, reaching as high as $400. No, no,
    the molten gold eventually forms into a gold i – Phone 5s.

    If you’re planning to use your i – Phone while jogging, you’ll definitely need a nice armband that will let you carry your i – Phone on your arm.
