iPhone 3G S Jailbreak Ready – But you’re not allowed it yet

The iPhone 3G S has been cracked now by the Dev Team. However, they have decided not to release it just yet. There is a good reason for this though which is they are expecting Apple to release a 3G S update sooner rather then later to fix a few bugs. If the Dev Team let the hack out in to the open then Apple will use it to fix this upcoming update, thus blocking all new iPhone 3G S users from having their iPhone 3G S jailbreak capable.

Here’s the critical point, the reason why we’re delaying our version of the jailbreak: Once the jailbreak is out, Apple will fix the iBoot-family bug we use to accomplish it. They will simply stop signing the old iBoots and only sign the fixed ones. If you bought your phone after Apple has done this, there’s nothing you can do¬¶the jailbreak isn’t going to work for you.

It is possible that Apple will find the bug we use without our handing it to them on a silver platter (via a public jailbreak). In that case, we will have delayed our jailbreak for “nothing”. But we’d rather be safe than sorry!

Apple is surely coming out with a 3.0.1 firmware release shortly. They need to fix ultrasn0w. They need to fix some UI issues. 3.0 is buggy and 3.0.1 is coming. We’re going to wait and see what 3.0.1 brings before figuring out the release date for our version of the jailbreak.

In the meantime, we have some remaining 3.0 jailbreak issues to investigate, including push notification. Thanks for being patient with us while we took a 3GS “timeout”!

Just be patient and it will arrive soon! Via: Gizmodo
