    Purplera1n 3GS Jailbreak for Mac/Windows

    Advertisement



    I posted this in another thread but the more I thought about it I did not want to confuse anyone and since this is only for the new iPhone3GS I thought it deserved it's own thread.

    You can now Jailbreak your iPhone3GS using purplera1n. It's also being reported that Ultrasn0w works and will unlock the phone after successfully Jailbreaking the phone.
    There is a download available for both Mac and Windows. (The Mac icon is neat. It's a purple rain drop)


    Before attempting this be certain you understand what your doing and remember to BACKUP your device first.
    As always be sure to read over neorabid's FAQ's for additional information.


    Download link

    Enjoy the freedom!



    A few resources in the event you run into questions:

    Install Instructions

    Unlock using Ultrasn0w - iPhone3G and iPhone3GS

    Capture your iBEC and iBSS. Needed if your going to ever update your iPhone OS from 3.0 to 3.1+

    To add to the above Jail Break

    Geohot just release his version version of unlock for the 3GS only purplesn0w

    As some may already know previously you had so use Ultrasn0w to Unlock the iPhone. Now it appears there are two (2) software methods now available.

    I don't know if anyone else has used purpra1n to jailbreak their 3GS, but for me it was a heaven send. The install was smooth and only took about 5 minutes if that much. I have grown a descent dislike of redsn0w when I was using a 3G. I'm curious if anyone else here has used purplera1n.

    I haven't yet. I did just Jailbreak another 3G this morning using redsn0w and it took maybe 5 minutes and I had no problems. I still think it depends on if your using a Mac or PC. I haven't used it yet b/c I've had such good luck with RS. A lot of others love purplera1n and swear by it.

    It's a toss up.

    Hi havnt posted in a bit so here goes.
    I think that Purplera1n was the fastest way to jailbreak the 3gs but with new 3.01 update
    PR won't work. IMO you have to do the new update (3.01) to fix SMS safety issue then jailbreak with Redsnow using the previous 3.0 update.

    Using this method my iPhone jailbroke in 5 mins after updating

    Keeps us updated how the redsn0w jailbreak is working on your 3GS. I just had a terrible experience with it when I had my 3G.
