We mentioned the Purplera1n iPhone 3GS jailbreak a few days ago, but many were waiting for the “official” tool, or at least one they were more familiar with for their jailbreaking activities. Well, RedSn0w has been updated, and now works to jailbreak your iPhone 3GS. You just need to download RedSn0w 0.8, which is said to be a bit more stable than Purplera1n, which will allow you to install Cydia, Icy, and UltraSn0w, if you need to jailbreak your device. It’s available on Windows, OS X, and Linux, and can be downloaded now.

We’ve already told you about the iPhone 3GS unlock that is currently available, but the iPhone Dev Team also has their “official” iPhone 3GS jailbreak and unlock ready, but they aren’t releasing it until Apple releases iPhone OS 3.1. However, they did put out a video showing how it works, which you can watch above. Looks painless.
How many of you are waiting for the Dev Team to release their unlock mechanism before unlocking your iPhone 3GS?
The iPhone 3GS 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.”
