Sadly pod2g has discovered that his untether does not work on the iPod 3G or iPhone 3GS, according to a recent tweet by the hacker.

Sad news. Just tested the untether on an iPod 3G. The kernel vulnerability don't happen on this one. I think iPhone 3Gs is out too.

Hopefully, there's still the tether jailbreak and downgrade for these old devices.

Next up, pod2g plans to test the Next tests on my list iPhone 4S and iPad 2. He has already confirmed the iPhone 4 and iPad 3 as working.

This will be disappointing news for many although it's possible a kernel vulnerability could yet be found for these older devices. For those wondering, pod2g reminds us that the old bootrom 3GS will be untethered jailbroken for life.

Hehhehehehe. This just makes it more than ever that the jailbreak community has been corrupted by Apple. They just want you to go buy a new iphone. But thanks. I pass. I'd rather wait dor WP8. Appreciate you making this choice easier.

I love my 3Gs with the old boot rom vulnerability. Guess I'm lucky. I've been holding onto it for just that reason. Don't need high res photo capability and I don't care about FaceTime. I also like the form factor. Hopefully the next gen iPhone goes back to the curved case.
