NOTE: Good news and bad news… I finally, after three attempts, got the jailbreak to stick, but am having issues with even getting Cydia to load data.
I am not sure what the issue is, or when I will have time to fix it, but will do my best to keep you posted.
Good news! You, dear 3G and 2G user, may now jailbreak your little device for 3.1!
Sorry, 3GS and iPod touch. You’re not invited to the party. Yet.
Also, one more caveat, you have to have Max OS to get er done, as it were.
The Dev-Team has released notes on how to do it here.
You’ll need Pwnage, which you can download here (official bit torrent download)
and the appropriate IPSW which you may find here…
Create a Custom Restore IPSW through Pwnage – Make sure to select expert and deselect the “Activate Phone” option – this is what tripped me up the first time. Once that is complete (roughly 5 minutes) put the phone into DFU mode then open iTunes and hold Option when you click Restore – browse for the custom restore IPSW you just created and sync as normal.
The sync can take upwards of 15 minutes.
Enjoy your newly updated iPhone.
Remember, Installer Apps takes no responsibility for any mishap that may occur during jailbreaking, so proceed with caution.
I also HIGHLY recommend you review Dev-Team’s Blog before proceeding. Make sure you’ve got the right IPSW and right device for this. Their blog can be a bit heady for some, so feel free to comment here if you have any questions. I’ll gladly walk you through as best I can.
