Good news for the iPhone jailbreak community! The iPhone DevTeam has release a jailbreak for the latest iPhone OS 3.1, just barely a week after Apple released the official firmware update. The application will support the iPhone 2G, the iPhone 3G and the iPod touch 1G.
This is the low down on our tools for use with the 3.1 firmware from Apple, please read the whole post in full before attempting anything. Because of changes with Apple s update techniques (that complicate the 3GS upgrade process) this will be a multipart release. This release starts with PwnageTool 3.1 for Mac OS X - this application supports the iPhone 1st Generation (2G), the iPhone 3G and the iPod touch 1G. NB: THIS DOES NOT SUPPORT THE 3GS OR 2G/3G IPOD TOUCH. redsn0w for Mac OS X and Windows will follow sometime in the near future, please don t bug us about it - we ll release when we have something ready.
For more info about the jailbreak procedure and how to download the app, you can check the full article via the source link below.
- GOLDEN RULE: If you are using a 3G iPhone with ultrasn0w and rely on ultrasn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should only upgrade to 3.1 with a PwnageTool created .ipsw. - Stay away from Apple s direct updates as described here and here please get up to speed on the whole subject by reading the information contained in these posts.
