The iPhone Dev-Team has posted an update regarding the 3.0 jailbreak expected later today.

They have been working to resolve two issues with the 3.0 firmware.

1. There are new 3.0 complications with if you’re on a hacktivated (unofficially activated) device
2. There’s a bug in Apple’s new version of asr that our custom IPSW’s are tickling and causing crashes on, on some devices. (For the nerdy or curious among us, the details of that bug were tweeted by planetbeing a month ago.)

* As of Thursday morning we now have a workaround for #2. For #1, we’ll try our best to get it fixed but we may end up releasing a preliminary jailbreak in which YouTube doesn’t work for hacktivated devices, and then follow that up with a more complete jailbreak when we can.

To be honest in my opinion i think apple have done a pretty poor job with the 3GS, the business model of reinventing the wheel each year to re-boost interest in an existing product is one of genius, and is what the success of apple is founded upon, but it should be done by creating new innovative features, not by making it a little faster and depriving their existing customers on older versions, despite those older versions being perfectly capable (for example MMS and voice control). I aint made of money, my iphone 2G cost an arm and a leg, im a student for crying out loud not a wealthy businessman, that is a huge middle finger stuck right in my face from apple, does nobody feel the same? Things like the compass feature and the posibilities it brings are a legitimate example of a new innovative feature, it is dependant on new hardware, making it a real reason to upgrade to the new iphone, but that alone isnt enough to cut it, create further new features, don't just cut off ones for other people, ill drop dead before i go out and buy a 3GS and not just because of the principle, ive seen the load times etc, if you have an iphone already, you'd be off your tits to go out and buy a 3GS for what it is, the OS 99% of the update, and you're getting that already, dont let apple bully you into blowing a whole load more money because they took one of your sweeties away, hopefully june 2010 will bring something worthwhile this time round

if im using something that could buggar up my phone and cause my days of stress sorting it, i read the readme file, it's in the bloody title, readme, when you open it, it doesnt just say 'hi' does it, its labeled readme because there's something you need to bloody read, and if you don't then accept the consequences. to say 'this is 2009 nobody reads the readme' is staggering, where exactly did you run that survey? dont speak on others behalf, if you're an idiot thats your problem, doesnt make everyone else an idiot

mmmm@everydaypanos your are grossly misinformed. Hopefully you are aware of the 3.0 ugrade and a lil thing the "Apple" Dev team came up w/ called "ultrasn0w" and "redsn0w". 3g 2.2.1 is beat by updating to 3.0 ok. and yes...this is a Mac thing you blubbering really??? @everydaypanzieass..u r an idiot.

i hate 3.0 i have the 3G and i cant voice command and i have ATnT n i dont have mms no compass ad no video camera so i need the jailbreak soon and true tht eff youtube mxtube rocks n also cycorder pliz :) Shout out to the rip dev crew on all their hard work good job
Hock - June 19, 2009 at 10:58pm
The things that you say you don't have either aren't supported by the 3g or ATT just have provided service for yet just like your mms. The 3g s is the only one with the voice commands and the compass. Apple is not going to give you all those things because that is how they lure people out to buy their new iPhone.

what do you mean by activate? assuming by activate its got something to do with iphone and carriers, ipod touch users wont be affected for youtube right?
futuregator15 - June 18, 2009 at 3:11pm
That is correct. It shouldn't affect iPod touch users
vishal - June 18, 2009 at 3:25pm
cool, then i definately can not wait till its released.
aznbimmer - June 18, 2009 at 1:14pm
Hold your horses and lets just wait until they have everything done. They say a Friday release then wait for the Friday release for the unlock. Good job Dev Team. Keep it up.
frederaly - June 18, 2009 at 12:53pm
You guys are awesome, thanks for all the hard work and details. I agree with everyone else = no need for YouTube.
futuregator15 - June 18, 2009 at 3:12pm
