    Just a heads up.. the official mirror isn't down, it just requires a referrer from http://purplera1n.com/ to avoid direct linking.

    Mirror on my site in my sig too though..

    Good Morning Sam

    thanks for your post about purplera1n

    you said:
    "Geohot has released his 3GS unlocking application."

    my question is, did you mean to say jailbreaking application?

    usually Im not such a stickler for words, as in the end, what we need is a working iPhone, but right now, afaict, purplera1n will NOT UNLOCK a 3GS, or, am I mistaken?:-)

    Hopefully by the time you read this, there will indeed be a user friendly unlock for 3GS (user friendly means including jailbreak and activation)

    1. Please make sure your using Windows XP 32bit on a physical machine. not a VM or 64bit version etc... Windows XP inside bootcamp seems to work fine.

    2. If you dont meet this criteria then you will get random crashing of the exe file.

    3. Please make sure you have the latest version of itunes installed.

    4. backup your iphone contents before even starting the process.

    If your getting stuck at restore mode, do the following (written by aldude):

    1. Run the app - says "Done, waiting to reboot" or something - nothing happens- you *may* get the image with geohot in the rain, but wait for about 6-8mins, if nothing happens then proceed to next stage:

    2. Close the ra1n app

    3. Unplug the iphone & switch it off

    4. Plug it back in again

    5. Re-run the app

    6. Bingo - the rain guy appears on the screen. App says waiting to reboot again - this time it happened after a minute or so.

    7. After reboot (& entered my passcode), new icon Freeze somewhere on the Springboard - run that, and press the Install Cydia button. Bingo.


    Once you've isntalled cydia through Freeze, restart the iphone and cydia will be available on the desktop. PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL WINTERBOARD AS IT IS BROKEN ATM. for Installous add the following source: "http:\\cydia.hackulos.at"

    Dureing the above process I left itunes open in the background, it will pop up randomly when the iphone is in restore mode. just click ok, but leave it running in the background.

    Red face allows jailbreak to run 'ultrasn0w'

    in essence, it jailbreaks without having to do 'pwnage' building a custom impk. Loading Cydia. Which allows the ultrasn0w to be installed, which tweaks the 'baseband' in laymen terms... Though from what i understand ultrasn0w hasn't been 'blessed' for 3Gs yet by the devteam.

    In short. yes this allows the jailbreak for cydia

    i'm trying this now "Thanks geohot!"

    Talking +1 success

    Only had to run once. did 3 reboots to make sure it was working right "read website is down"

    resumed ultrasn0w steps. And it's working solid so far. Will update if issues occur in the next 48 hours.

    1. I've turned off 3G since i'm with T-mobile.

    2. i've configured APN settings for edge & MMS.

    3. done resync with itunes to confirm functionality.

    4. Made sure 'baseband' is at 04.26.08 = Modem Firmware.


    end result... I say goodbye to my G1 it's a good phone, but as much of a fan as i am of the import scene, there's no replacement for displacement. = 600Mhz cpu & new gpu.
