Jailbreak iPhone 3G S is klaar

Het iPhone Dev Team heeft laten weten dat zij inmiddels een jailbreak hebben voor de iPhone 3G S. Helaas zullen we nog even geduld moeten hebben, want de jailbreak wordt nog niet vrijgegeven.

Dit omdat Apple binnenkort met firmware OS 3.0.1 zal komen en het iPhone Dev Team eerst wil testen of de jailbreak dan nog steeds werkt.

Onderstaand is op hun blog te lezen:

“Here’s the critical point, the reason why we’re delaying our version of the jailbreak: Once the jailbreak is out, Apple will fix the iBoot-family bug we use to accomplish it. They will simply stop signing the old iBoots and only sign the fixed ones. If you bought your phone after Apple has done this, there’s nothing you can do…the jailbreak isn’t going to work for you.

It is possible that Apple will find the bug we use without our handing it to them on a silver platter (via a public jailbreak). In that case, we will have delayed our jailbreak for “nothing”. But we’d rather be safe than sorry!

Apple is surely coming out with a 3.0.1 firmware release shortly. They need to fix ultrasn0w. They need to fix some UI issues. 3.0 is buggy and 3.0.1 is coming. We’re going to wait and see what 3.0.1 brings before figuring out the release date for our version of the jailbreak.

In the meantime, we have some remaining 3.0 jailbreak issues to investigate, including push notification. Thanks for being patient with us while we took a 3GS “timeout”!”
