The first ever iPhone 3G S Jailbreak application has finally been released by Geohot. It can be downloaded at http://purplera1n.com/. Keep in mind that it wont work in Vista or in Vista 64 bit either. You’ll have to change the compatibility settings to XP.
Here are the detailed instructions:
- Download the application from http://purplera1n.com/. ( 394 KB app only )
- Plug in your iPhone 3GS.
- Execute the purplera1n application ( in XP mode if you are using Vista.)
- Your iPhone 3G S will now reboot and show the purplera1n picture.
- Run Freeze from your springboard, it will download and install Cydia.
If you don’t see Cydia, try rebooting your iPhone and you’ll see it now.
It’s a really simple and easy process. This jailbreak app wont free you from your current carrier and it’s not available for the Mac yet either.
