iPhone 3.0 Pwnage Jailbreak Tool Now Available for Mac OS X

Zoom Lens: L M S

We've all known the iPhone Dev Team had decided not to release the jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS until the next iPhone OS (3.1) update was released.

GeoHot ( the guy who discovered the hole) has decided he doesn’t want to wait for the iPhone Dev Team to release it and has decided to release it himself, check out what he has to day about it below.

Normally I don't make tools for the general public, and rather wait for the dev team to do it. But guys, whats up with waiting until 3.1? That isn't how the game is played. We release, Apple fixes, we find new holes. It isn't worth waiting because you might have the "last" hole in the iPhone. What last hole...this isn't golf. I'll find a new one next week.

This time, Hotz got some help from two fellow coders to be able to please the Mac folks, but he also made some improvements to the Windows version.

Click the image above and then click the logo you know all too well to Download.

Important Note: Do not upgrade to 3.1 firmware if you want this unlock!

Below is the video showing a jailbroken iPhone 3GS running the UltraSn0w unlock.

Our Ultrasn0w program uses the at+xlog crash as an injection vector of our unlocking payload — and it does so on the 3GS in exactly the same way as on the 3G! But this injection vector will be lost if you update to 3.1 using the official Apple IPSW, which updates the baseband. So stay away from official 3.1 IPSWs until we release the tools that let you update the firmware without updating the baseband.

But this jailbreak is not yet out. iPhone Dev Team is still waiting on the OS 3.1 update to release its jailbreak. You might have to wait for another 1-2 weeks.

So there you have it expert users. And for those less certain of their skills, more and more jailbreak options will be available to you in the near future. Sit tight and be patient.
