iPhone 3GS Unlocked and Jailbroken


iPhone 3GS UnlockThe can finally be unlocked and jailbroken. This past Friday, George Hotz released his Purplera1n iPhone 3GS jailbreak tool. Of course, once the iPhone 3GS was jailbroken, it was only a matter of time before unlocking was possible.

According to George:

“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.”


Originally, Purplera1n was released just for Windows users, but over the weekend, a Mac version was released as well. As with all iPhone jailbreak tools and releases, be careful out there. While many are experiencing success, some are reporting random issues, like SIM lockouts and Wi-Fi fails.

Hit us up in the comments, and let us know if you tried it. How did it work for you?
