iOS 4.3.1 was released only yesterday and a jailbreak solution for this new firmware update is already available for a variety of devices. We have already covered extensive guides on how to jailbreak iPhone 4, iPad 1G and iPod touch 4G on iOS 4.3.1 using PwnageTool.
After releasing PwnageTool bundles for iPhone 4, iPad and iPod touch 4G / 3G, iPhone developer and hacker iH8sn0w has now released bundle for iPhone 3GS (new and old bootrom) which can jailbreak this device on the newly released iOS 4.3 firmware.
The folks who brought us FaceTime on unsupported iPhone 4s in countries like the one in the Middle East are now hard at work in bringing FaceTime on jailbroken iPhone 3GS !
PwnageTool bundle for jailbreaking iPhone 3GS on iOS 4.2 GM has been released. You can use this bundle with PwnageTool 4.1.x to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS (old bootrom only), while preserving your old 05.13.04 baseband so that you can unlock it using Ultrasn0w.
iOS 4.2 has already been jailbroken for old bootrom devices with PwnageTool for Macs! And now we have good news for our PC-toting readers: it is coming real soon to Windows with Sn0wbreeze!
PwnageTool Bundle for iOS 4.2 Beta on iPhone 3GS (old bootrom) has been released. You can use this bundle to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS on iOS 4.2 while preserving your older baseband so that you can unlock it “later” (more on this below) using Ultrasn0w. The best thing about this bundle is that it supports hacktivation, but unfortunately, Cydia is currently not compatible with iOS 4.2. You will have to use SSH (OpenSSH) to copy or install any files manually on your iPhone.
The unofficial version of PwnageTool for iOS 4.1 on iPhone 3GS has been released. It can jailbreak iPhone 3GS (with old bootrom only) using iOS 4.1 custom firmware. For those of you who don’t know, PwnageTool for Mac enables iPhone users to upgrade to the new firmware without upgrading the baseband, hence making it possible to jailbreak and unlock the phone using the Ultrasn0w software. This version of PwnageTool unfortunately doesn’t support hacktivation, so you will have to either use officially supported SIM, or the phonebook SIM card method to activate the phone before unlocking it with Ultrasn0w.
The unofficial release of PwnageTool for jailbreaking iOS 4.0.2 is now out in the wild. It can jailbreak iPhone 3GS (with old bootrom only) using iOS 4.0.2 custom firmware. There is of course no need to update to iOS 4.0.2 if you have iOS 4.0.1 (jailbroken using JailbreakMe) and PDF Patch installed from Cydia. But in case you have updated to iOS 4.0.2 accidently on your iPhone 3GS (with old bootrom), you can jailbreak it again using this version of PwnageTool for Mac.
iPhone and iPod touch Jailbreakers, Do Not Update to iOS 4.0.2 Until New Jailbreak Tool is Available
Apple has pushed out the new iOS 4.0.2 firmware for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, 3G and iPod touch 3G / 2G. This new firmware is basically a security update which patches the PDF exploit used by JailbreakMe to jailbreak all iOS devices. Now if you care about your security, you can go ahead and update now but doing so will make your iPhone 4, 3GS and iPod touch 3G / 2G unjailbreakable until a new jailbreak tool is available.
The iPhone Dev-Team (Comex) has released JailbreakMe 2.0 (aka Star) which can jailbreak all iOS devices on their latest respective firmware like iOS 4.0 / 4.0.1. This does not work with iOS 4.1 Beta release. Since JailbreakMe 2.0 is a userland jailbreak, what this means is that you run it right in your iOS Safari browser to jailbreak the device. It cant get simpler than that !
