purplera1n and OS 3.0.1
As most are aware, Apple released 3.0.1 yesterday to address the SMS exploit that was detailed at Black Hat this week.
Has anyone else applied 3.0.1 and tried purplera1n to jailbreak their 3GS?
I've just tried it (restored phone back to default to ensure it wasn't running any other jailbreak) and it does not appear to work. The application will run on the Mac (OS X 10.5.7 on early 2006 Intel iMac) and after clicking "make it ra1n" I'll see the nice picture of George in the rain with the iPhone, but it sits there and does not appear to do anything. I've left it for over 15 minutes and still nothing, in the end I powered down the phone, left it for 60 seconds and then powered it up and it came back up without any issues.
Purplera1n does not work with 3.0.1
OK now what?
OK I was stupid and didnt think and iTunes updated my iPhone. So now I cannot get jail break to work either. Is there a way to go back to the previous version?
Has purplera1n not been updated to work with version 3.0.1??
use readsn0w and piont it to 3.0... which will jailbreak your phone

It will jailbreak the 3GS, the carrier unlock for both 3G and 3G is done via ultrasn0w.
