3.1.3 Jailbreak for iPhone 3GS

Many Jailbreakers who hacked their iphones previously using blackra1n, pwnage or redsn0w, who have since upgraded to Apples latest firmware 3.1.3, may find themselves tearing their hair out! (myself included)

At the present time, there is no Jailbreak available to 3G and 3GS users who have the newer bootrom starting with (MC).

UPDATE:

Jailbreak now available for all versions of iPhone including MC and 3GS versions. No SHSH needed.

This comes as a real blow to the iPhone community, as many are left high and dry with no option but to currently return to Apples forced policies.  There are many ligitimate reasons why you would want to jailbreak your iPhone but for now, it looks like we’re in for a bit of a wait.

This latest version of PwnageTool can jailbreak the original iPhone (Edge/2G), iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS(older bootrom only with baseband 04.26.08) and ipod touch(1G and 2G non-MC model; 2G should also be pre-jailbroken) running on iphone firmware 3.1.3.

If you have upgraded to firmware 3.1.3 and have a neweriPhone, the only option you currently have is to downgrade your firmware back down to 3.1.2, but beware, this is not easy! I gave up trying – which is exactly what Apple want.

Have they actually won this time?

    Yes, I also tried to downgrade the firmware without success. I bitterly resent losing my jailbreak!

    The Dev team has cautiusly announced that it has cracked the problem now, but is holding back before release.

      I really hope so.
      In future, I will not upgrade any firmware on my iphone until a jailbreak has been proven and the benefits are worthwhile. I would recommend everyone to do the same.
      All in all – what extra benefits has the upgrade given us – Nothing worth having.

      Upgrading the firmware and baseband really only benefits Apple and their carriers such as o2 and Orange. Remember – a jailbroken iphone can ultimately decrease the revenue of the app store and provide workarounds to make free calls over 3G without running up a huge phone bill. All in all, jailbreaking loses Apple money.

      I hope there will be a solution soon!

    I agree. Eventually Apple will lock down everything so tightly that jailbreaking will become a thing of the past – that’s definately what they’re working towards. With the release of the iPad, this project becomes even more relevant.

    Don’t upgrade your firmware!!!!!!!!!!!!
