Newest iPhone Will not jailbreak/unlock HELP!
I have the newest version of the iPhone 3GS (32GB) - the warranty runs out Jan 11th 2011 - I have tried using blackra1n - All that happens is that the iPhone briefly shows the splash screen of blackra1n (the curly haired guy) - for like around 5 seconds (which is not like normal when it shows for quite a while) - and then just enters recovery mode - then I have to restore via itunes.
I also have tried pwnage tool for mac - and that also just puts the iphone in recovery mode - then I have to restore through the official firmware through itunes. Anyone else else experiencing this?
I have jailbroken the iPhone 3G and a 3GS when they first came out last summer - but now it seems the new models are different some how.
Really am puzzled - can anyone shed some light on this - has anyone tried doing it with the very latest versions of the 3GS?

Apple is now shipping new iPhone that runs on the new boot ROM iBoot-359.3.2 isnít vulnerable to the existing 24kpwn exploit that is used by the iPhone Dev Teamís Pwnage tool and GeoHotís Blackra1n.
Since all current Jailbreaking tools are based on the 24kpwn exploit, owners of the new iPhone 3GS shipped with the new boot ROM will have to wait for a next generation of Jailbreaking tools.
sucks, but the Dev Team is working on it. just be patient.
Thanks for the response.
That's cool - its kind of reassuring to hear that it is not me or my particular iPhone that is the problem - i.e., its everyone with the newest version.
Do the symptoms I described sound like those that would occur by attempting to jailbreak with blackra1n and quickpwn with the newest iPhone?

Well I did try blackra1n first - as I say, all it did was spring the image of the curly haired guy for like 5 seconds - then all I got was the connect to itunes notice on the iphone - then itunes says that the iphone is in recovery mode or whatever it says, and I need to hit restore in itunes. I do, and I'm then back to square 1 lol.
Any reason why this might be? If you say that blackra1n is immune from this new iphone boot ROM...
