    Why the change in thinking. I always thought you enjoyed the cat and mouse game with Apple, I also thought you like being the 1st, So why are you holding back on the untethered 3g S Jailbreak for all us unfortunate to be stuck with new bootrom.

    Normally I don't make tools for the general public, and rather wait for the dev team to do it. But guys, whats up with waiting until 3.1? That isn't how the game is played. We release, Apple fixes, we find new holes. It isn't worth waiting because you might have the "last" hole in the iPhone. What last hole...this isn't golf. I'll find a new one next week. Also your purplera1nyday files ensure that you can always get back to a jailbroken state, so if you have it it's just a matter of tools.

    Props to chronic dev for their help, and to kroo for writing v2 of Freeze. And props to Saurik for making an awesome package set. Note the binary size of purplera1n, it's smaller than C++ hello world. No 20MB thing that needs to be torrented. And no IPSW to download. This is how jailbreak should be!

    I don't get it. That was posted July 3rd, 2009. Why are you bringing this up?

    Holding back an untethered Jailbreak for Iphone 3g S FW3.1.3 with new bootrom is very now, not 2009. In Geohots words:
    That isn't how the game is played

    If I had to guess, I'd say that was written BEFORE the new bootrom and the patch of the 24Kpwn exploit.

    The game has changed a bit since that time.

    That was still said on July 3, 2009 though. GeoHot, ChronicDev, The Dev Team, HiSn0w, Comex... ALL of them have decided to keep their new exploit(s) secret because the ONLY reason Apple released 3.1.3 was to flush out and patch any potential exploits in the new iBoot which is running on the IPT3, new 3GS, iPad, and most likely the new iPhone. Because they are smartly holding back the result is ALL devices will be able to upgrade and jailbreak (untethered) on 4.0.

    There speaks someone who hasn't got a clue what he's talking about. The 4.0 JB is the same one that has been released for 3.13

    This whole thread is a waste of space just quoting what Geo said last year. He knows, as does everyone else, that 3.13 is not worth wasting exploits on.

    Thank you for that well thought out intelligent comment. If it all were recycled exploits, why not release it for 3gs 3.1.3 Not all of us with 3.1.3 upgraded to get it.

    It has been released for 3.13 - what is it you don't understand?

    3.1.3 on a 3gs with 5.12.01 baseband and the new bootrom? Where has it been released? Tethered or otherwise?

    There is no JB for a 3GS on 3.13 or 4.0

    they just released a "jailwait" for 3GS on 3.1.3 and all other non jailbroken devices!

    basically it lets you wait till a jailbreak is available instead of makeing the 50th thread on the same issue

    Can you please explain what a "jailwait" is for all of us unfortunate enough to have had to upgrade to the 3.1.3 Thanks

    Its a video showing a jailbreak exists but isn't released yet... So you have to "wait".

    Did you actually read what i wrote? In that one sentence i posted, i stated there was a jailbreak 4.0

    You stated they released a jailbreak for 4.0. It is not released. Geohot can toot his trumpet all he wants about finding new holes. It is not guaranteed. Apple can kill jailbreaking very easily if the current exploits are waved around on the net before the OS is released.

    We all know that there is a JB for the 3G - that is nothing new. There is no JB for the 3GS and no exploits were revealed in RedSn0w.
    Please provide a link to redsn0w 0.9.5 BETA [iPhone Dev Team] rather than just to the file itself.
