GeoHot Addresses PurpleRa1n Jailbreak for iPhone OS 3.0.1

Posted by · 18325 views
GeoHot has posted in regards to the compatibility of the PurpleRa1n jailbreak with iPhone OS 3.0.1.

Currently, it doesn't work, and I don't plan to ever make it work. Apple changed the kernel from 3.0 to 3.0.1, and I patch the kernel in a very specific spot. I code to make things simple, hacky, and fast. Dev codes to make things proper, slow, and complicated; redsn0w works OOTB. I could imagine a tool that takes the best of both worlds. No reason you need to push buttons or give the jailbreak program an ipsw; you can still write something generic that'll work on every device and version. And be fast. But I'm too lazy to write it.

Someone enterprising out there could probably fix it, it's just the kernel patches that are in the wrong place. Exploit and 99% of payload will work fine. But otherwise, purplera1n RIP. It was really more proof of concept to show whats possible; same thing with purplesn0w.

If I do another tool release, it'll hit the ipt3 and ra1nydayless 3GS. Told you I had more holes.

More holes heh. He wanted Apple to patch the 'only' hole beforehand so that only he knew of these other two holes. It's like he wants to be the 'last' and 'only' hope for the unlocking and jailbreaking of the iPhones and using laziness as an excuse to sit out for now. Pffft, Dev-Team all the wayyy (:

I never used it but it all sounded incomplete...cydia with no winterboard? So I waited for the slow but complete dev team. Im so glad I did.

Ricekake, you are an idiot. Purplera1n worked great. Winterboard works fine as does cydia. Everything worked the same. The winterboard not working at first was a problem with winterboard no the jailbreak. Know what you're talking about before posting retarded comments. He doesn't need to make a jailbreak with 3.1 just around the corner.

Madcow, when you say Purplera1n worked, do you mean on the 3.0 or the 3.0.1 os?
