    Default PurpleSn0w - Unlock for 3GS now out

    Geohot has released PurpleSn0w
    See On the iPhone: Make it ra1n, I'm makin' it sn0w

    Still beta but might be worth a try for those of you with problems on UltraSn0w (although I don't believe this will solve the battery issues)

    Sounds interesting but looking at the comments its not working for most people and 3G doesnt work with it. Seems to lose unlock with a restart of the phone also.

    Think I will wait a bit longer to see what other guinea pigs find!!

    From what I read there are a few people not following the instructions to the letter...

    If you are already JB with Redsn0w and UL with unltrasn0w do this:-

    Restore to original 3.0 ipsw
    Activate with official SIM
    JB with Purplera1n RC2 (turn off 3G for T Mobile)
    Purplesn0w

    Test away

    It is working perfectly n my 32GB activated with O2 in the UK. No problems with restart.

    Nice to hear - what about 3G? People reporting 3G switched on breaks the unlock/carrier signal

    Aparently it will not work on 3G (yet) because it is designed to patch the 3GS commcenter which is different Binary from the 3G commcenter.

    Sorry crossed wires when I say 3G doesnt work I meant 3G function not a 3G iphone. I is reported 3G when switched on turns the phone into a slow crawl and carrier signal dies. Geohot recognises this and appears to be working on it!
