    Default 3.1.3 / 5.12.01 Unlock and Jailbreak - FOUND

    So, I've been following this blog for a bit now, and they say that in 9 days as of this post they will release their unlock for 3G and 3GS's running on 3.1.3 and baseband 5.12.01!

    Screenshots included on the blog.

    I am not a dev for this blog or anything, just a supporter and a person waiting patiently on the release :P

    If this is legit, it's a ridiculous waste of an exploit. None of their videos show anything legitimate. As far as I'm concerned this is just a fake jailbreak and should be avoided.

    Well as I said I don't work for them or anything.. just letting everyone else know that its out there, in case it does work.

    I personally will test it when its released - and report back. 3GS 32GB on 3.1.2 / 5.12.01

    I don't get how people say its a waste of an exploit.. how many people have $800 paper weights right now? I'm sure its a significant amount of people that it wouldn't go to waste. If even 1 person uses the exploit, then it wasn't a waste to release it. If 1,000,000 people use it, then it wasn't a waste of time to develop.

    Also, there's at least 3 different exploits floating around out there (GeoHotz, Musclenerd, Chronic Dev, Dev Team, etc..)

    When 4.0 hits, there will be lots of JB's and Unlocks..

    How do you know? It's not like this person is charging for anything, nor is he asking for any type of donation. Wait till the 23rd and if it works then cool, and if not then we don't worry about it.

    Also, I kinda know Wiltron, why should it be deleted just because you assume that it will be fake? Exploits seem to be a dime a dozen now. The "security sheriff" they hired for 4.0 needs his *** fired. :|

    I agree why should this post be deleted after all Beerwolf only has 1 post. Not that i'm any better at posting. It would be worth a try on the 23rd.

    I second that, I'll test it too, post screen shots if it works, and if not then the countdown clock starts again for 4.0 jailbreak

    It's a WASTE of an exploit b/c even Dev-Team and GeoHot have said that the jailbreak exploits are becoming more difficult to find with each new release of an OS. To release an exploit on a 3.1.x release where Apple can just easily patch that for 4.0, IS a waste. If this is a legit jailbreak AND unlock, this team is showing Apple their hand WAY too early.

    you have a jailbroken iPhone, many of us don't

    And I have had to do my share of waiting for an exploit. I understand your impatience, but I also understand withholding for a greater reward. Waiting to release the exploit until 4.0 will benefit many more people than those waiting for a 3.1.3 exploit. 4.0 may come out with a new baseband which will leave people waiting for an unlock for (possibly) longer.

    Again, I understand the frustration, but also understand that the security holes jailbreakers are using are getting more and more complex and harder to use (in general), why go out of the way to show Apple an exploit they can patch between now and 4.0 in 2 months? 3.1.3 has been out for 2 months now, likely you only have to wait another 2 months for 4.0.

    Finally, jailbreaking is not a "right". Apple is going out of their way to make it more difficult to jailbreak. Jailbreakers have to take more responsibility for their devices to preserve jailbreaks.

    If you had the skills you also might have a different outlook on things.

    I would love to test out the jailbreak, too, but I am such a newbie to iPhones that I would be worried that I would brick the phone.

    There is a copy of an early build on their site that you can rapishare to get the jb and unlock. This is being stressed as a "use at own risk" build since there is a boot issue. I downloaded it just to see what it would entail. It's literally plug in and click and wait.

    Am debating on trying it... If it works will post later tonight with screen shots

    There is a legit version, its call sn0wbreeze and it can work in harmony with blacksn0w or purplesn0w to unlock it.

    Jailbreak iPhone 3.1.3 with Sn0wbreeze | Redmond Pie

    and even though I normally dont trust page titles with the ovbious like this, I just jailbroke my 3G and its running flawless

    It's a waste of an exploit because instead of saving it for newer versions to jailbreak (which would be better) you would have jailbroken something that would be outdated in couple weeks. 3.1.3 jailbreak is completely pointless and 4.0 is coming soon anyways

    @sp33ddialz, thank you for trying it out if you decide to do so.

    Please let us know how it goes.

    The 1st thing I did when I got my iPhone is update the OS to 3.1.3 not knowing that I wouldn't be able to jailbreak it. Jailbreaking isn't a big deal to me either way but I would like to have some of the apps from Cydia.

    I might try it out in the morning. I'll report back when/if I do.

    I'm just worried I'm going to destroy a perfectly good iPhone that I don't have the money to replace.

    He does report the old version posted works on iTouch's only, and that the newer release works on iPhones.. so you guys testing it out now may brick your phone..

    Wait until the release - I will test it out when its released.
