I have recently JB my iPhone 3gS it was the easiest JB ever to download it just goto

http://purplera1n.com/

after you download the file just run it click make it rain

after that it basically does it itself

after it reboots it will create an icon on your Spring Board you simply click it and it will install Cydia

it is soo easy a caveman can do it haha and i did it drunk lol

hope this topic helps all of you

remember thank me if it did

The icon/app is called Freeze. Which is exactly what happened to my phone!

UPDATE: All good now. Installed Cydia successfuly. I'm giddy with excitement!

It works great... when i did it, it got stuck trying to reboot with the connect to iTunes icon but i just held the power down to kill it and turned it back on then closed purplera1n then ran it again and it went that time...

aslo when i used freeze to install cydia it didn't show up so i had to reboot the phone and it showed up no problem...

if anyone is going to install the mobile installation patch make sure you use "xxxxxxx" not the old one because it wont work...also i am have problems with winterboard because after the install it would only boot into safe mode, tried a reinstall but still did it so removed it until there is an update...

besides that it works great

How is the battery life on the 3G S after jailbreaking?

I tried doing this on my 1st generation running 3.0 and the battery ran out in about 5 hours.

I don't think this is an official Dev Team release. Their site doesn't say anything about it. They have an new video posted saying to expect a JB/Unlock roughly the same time as 3.1 is released. I'm waiting for QuickPWN.

This is not an official dev-team release this is the JB by former member geohot who was working with the chronic-devteam.

This JB works great so far

Great news, but winterboard is not working properly. So, I will wait for a better release. I would suggest you guys keep an eye on this blog, http://iPhonejtag.blogspot.com. He may have a fix posted soon.

I thought i seen somewhere that the were doing away with Quickpwn. I could be wrong though.




Also for everyone having problems with winterboard, I did to. It doesn't work with this release. You have to go into safe mode and uninstall it and Cydia will work fine. Even the weather icon.
Here is a web site that explains it:

Me too....I've had a good history using Dev Team tools...and as they say...'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' ;)

SBsettings was the 1st successful install for me too. Quickgold was mine first try but it said it wasn't compatible.

Just make sure you don't try to install the Rotation Inhibitor add-on for SBSettings. It put my phone in an infinite crash loop. I'm downloading the 3.0 firmware right now to restore. :(

I've used redsnow to pwn my v1. While it's the simplest JB implementation from the ADT yet, it doesn't compare at all to purplera1n for ease of use. None of that "hold power for x seconds, hold home and power for x seconds, let go of power....". Purplera1n, for want of a better term, is pretty much Plug N Play.

It's sooo good to have SBsettings again! :D :D

I can wait for Winterboard to hopefully be fixed.

I suspect it's time for "Fallboard" or "Autumnboard"
