iPhone Dev-Team Releases RedSn0w Jailbreak for iPhone 3GS

Posted July 7, 2009 at 11:23am by iClarified · 26635 views
The iPhone Dev-Team jailbreak has been released for the iPhone 3GS, according to a BigBoss report.

The jailbreak can be performed using RedSn0w 0.8 for Windows and Mac. BigBoss is hosting the files here: Windows, Mac

1) Stable jailbreak tested by dev-team
2) Icy + Cydia problem solved (we think).
3) Ultrasn0w tested and working on 3gs
4) Proper kernel patches which will enable logome (after it’s updated for 3.0).
5) Mobile Substrate + Winterboard now working on 3gs.

The guides are very similar to the iPhone 3G but we have created specific ones for the 3GS since future jailbreaks will likely get more complicated. You can find them here: (Windows, Mac).

Hi V0.8 keeps crashing when asked to move into recovery mode. It does a lightning across my iphone screen and then iphone restarts without rebooting nor jailbroken. Anyone with advise? Have tried multiple times.

BRIKZ - July 7, 2009 at 3:57pm

esta muy bien

Seems like all you have to do if you already have installed the custom firmware is run redsnow and it's that easy. Why to use dev team over purplera1n? I had a lot of apps that i downloaded from cydia crash the phone and put it into safe mode, and installed with redsnow they don't. irealquicksms,

Mobile Substrate? That's what my only guess would be. I found it very weird that the Dev-Team would chose now to release their jailbreak after saying "we are going to wait until 3.1". Crock? Hmm, now that Saurik has updated MS(not microsoft(N)), and winterboard works, AS WELL AS ALL THE OTHER APPS THAT DEPENDED ON MS(once again not meaning microsoft), including iRealSMS and biteSMS(odly it did seeing that I think this was one of the best 3rd sms apps on the phone), the devteam releases their jailbreak. Crock? No, I say "Not wanting GeoHotz to get all the credit for finding the exploit. Again." But hey, thanks for the jailbreak anyways.

If it stays stuck on the reboot process, hold down the sleep and home button until the iPhone shuts off, then let go of the buttons, wait a few seconds, and then press the sleep button to turn it on. If it works fine after that and it is jailbroken don't worry about it, if it doesn't work then reinstall the firmware and try again. Nothing is perfect and there will be a few instances where the jailbreak process won't go correctly, it's happened to me many times.

Mine stayed in the authorize mode as well, until I switched off the 3g mode if you're on t-moblie. Then it works just fine.
