you can't jailbreak the 3GS yet
#3
Where is this Dev blog please, I dont understand much about these iPhones since I have just got it
#4
Also JayBird you say it cant be jailbroken yet, but can it be unlocked as I am sick of using an o2 sim that has no free internet on it ?

It can be unlocked, but not yet.

You need to jailbreak it to install the unlock, but you cant jailbreak it yet. That should change in the next week or so i reckon

Again - Jaybird is talking Nonse-Sense.

3GS is jailbreakable with modified pwnagetool. I will post a firmware in a bit

Yes, but that method comes with its own caveats

I'd wait for the official 3GS jailbreak tools

Don't backtrack, have some self-respect and accept you were talking absolute rubbish.
#15
what if I don't have a mac? and is there any risks to jailbreaking or does everything work fine, calls, texts internet etc is untouched just you get homebrew and stuff?
#16
whats the risk involved with jailbreaking ? if something goes wrong can I easily restore ?

Also I appreciate both your help, so I will rep you both now
banned#17
Theres not normally much risk at all, but this is a modified leaked version of the tool, so maybe a first timer should think carefully.

Also, and I'm gonna type this in big letters in case people get confused with the arguement above:

[SIZE="7"][COLOR="Red"]THERE IS NO UNLOCK FOR iOS 4 on 3GS yet.[/COLOR][/SIZE]

Although you can jailbreak, if you need an unlock you must not do this until the lock is updated!
#18
its always been jailbreakable, just no tools to do it (officially)

Also, the method described wont allow you to unlock with ultrasn0w

There is an updated method that you can use to jailbreak AND unlock (descibed on that page), but only if you meet certain requirements

Read the article in the link you posted :thumbsup:

Jaybird what are you on?

Theres no "official" or "unofficial". It's all cloak and dagger stuff with jailbreaking. It's a hacked/updated version of existing software. Big deal. 3GS is now jailbrreakable. Simples.

"PwnageTool has confirmed that this version has been modified and redistributed without their permission"

Sounds unofficial to me

Well I've just gone from official unlocked 3GS (jb'd with snowbreeze I think) 3.1.3 to 4.0 jb'd with leaked pwnagetool with no problems.

Not sure if official 4.0 to jb 4.0 is possible, so if you want to follow in my footsteps, perhaps leave it at 3.1.3 for now, jb that, then upgrade to jb 4.0

thats confusing, hope you understood!

I think we will see a bit of movement with new jailbreaking apps once the new iPhone is released on Thursday

Read the link - not in my case there isn't (thou as stated, I don't need it anyway)

Next thing you'd like to be wrong about?

Back to your first point "there is no jailbreak for 3gs" haha.

It's a beta-jailbreak if you like - seems to work ok though.

james: there is no "official" - its just a bunch of bad guys annoying apple. But, I know what you mean, and the fact there is dodgy versions out already, suggests it wont be long!

I'm not gonna comment on whats been said, as i've not a clue.

But...

vibeone: why the hell do you bold your text, i don't get it.. Plus why do you start threads with "VB1:" at the front of it

What is odd, is those actions make you look like an attention seeking / weird little man / moron - take your pick...

However... regardless of our arguments on occasion.. You don't come across stupid, can be quite reasonable at times..

I just don't understand how at one minute you are bg1 / TheJFK esque and a total twerp, getting upto the sorta stupid antics a 9 year old would. Then also be level headed, carrying a conservation..

What i'm saying is..

[SIZE="7"]YOU CONFUSE ME[/SIZE]

So, you were wrong, as much as i was wrong

:thumbsup::-D:whistling:

Anyway, either way, id wait for official word from dev team or geohot etc before doing anything

Musclenerd from dev team has already said to stay away from updating to iOS4 just to be safe.

Probably be all clearer in next few days

You seem to have misunderstood - you were wrong. I wasn't. Clearly you have no self respect though.
