Geohot is back at it again and it looks like he has already found a method to jailbreak the iPhone 3GS!

Details of the exploit are still being gathered; however, it looks like GeoHot was able to insert a custom command to iBoot meaning sigchecks have been bypassed (thanks mav). This should be a start for the iPhone 3GS (N88AP) jailbreak which has been dubbed purplera1n.

Geohot has already activated but is hosting nothing but an image as of now.

The really good news is that if the jailbreak is successful the UltraSn0w unlock should be compatible with the iPhone 3GS as well.

If anyone has a more detailed understand of the image below please post in the comments and we will update the article as new information is found.

This news makes my day! I\'ve been checking like every hour for news on this since Friday. I\'m going crazy waiting for a jailbreak for my 3G S. Seriously, without it, I think I would downgrade back to my old 3G. You rock GeoHot!!!

Guys ... i have a question ? if i buy a new iphone from o2 ireland .. not with contract \" pay monthly \" . is it unloack one and works with any sim like mine in libya .. or it just work with o2 .. thanks

I would say it\'s locked to O2. If it\'s a 3G, you can unlock with software. If it\'s 3GS, you\'re out of luck. Your only hope is to wait for jailbreak or buy a turbosim (rebel) that works with 3.0.
