Info on purplera1n Jailbreak for 3.0.1 Firmware

##ICON_NAME## Last night, GeoHot updated his blog in regards to the purplera1n jailbreak working on the 3.0.1 firmware. Below is what he had to say.

“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.”

  1. So basically screw us purple rain users

    • basically, yea, he’s taken sides with the dev team and will help them out now is my guess.

    • Moltisanti says

      But remember, to be fair, purplera1n was the first jailbreak out there, this forcing redsn0w to debut on 3.0 instead of 3.1

      Can you imagine still waiting for 3.1 to jailbreak?

      I don’t mind anyways. I am waiting for 3.1 to do the jailbreak proccess all over again. Besides, no one I going to take over anyone iPhones.

  2. Everyone wait for Jay Freemen jailbreak solution he promises to make all upgrade simple on jailbreak devices.

  3. It would be so sweet of the jailbreak was released through a website that installed through safari right on the iPhone.

  4. I wish I woulda used redsnow now

  5. IT would really suck to have to start my phone over from scratch thanks to this

  6. I am on 3.0 purplera1n. I tried to upgrade to the devteams 3.0.1 using their method and it froze my phone. Had to use purplera1n to get it working again. I’ll just wait for the next release.
