  • iPhone 3GS. Jailbreak. Mac.

    Only a couple of days after George Hotz became the first hacker to release a jailbreak app for the iPhone 3GS on Windows, there’s a Mac-compatible version out too. This time, Hotz got some help from two fellow coders to be able to please the Mac folks, but he also made some improvements to the Windows version. Happy jailbreaking, and in case you didn’t know yet: happy unlocking too. Read More

  • How to jailbreak the iPhone 3GS

    Before I go defile myself with burgers and beer I wanted to jailbreak my iPhone 3GS for you all. The process was amazingly simple. Using a Windows netbook – it doesn’t work under Windows 7 – I simply installed iTunes and ran purplera1n. It took a second to reboot then it rolled through recovery mode, rebooted, and an app called Freeze appeared. Freeze then installed Cydia and… Read More

  • Hotz does it again, releases jailbreak app for iPhone 3GS

    George Hotz, the 20-year old hacker who originally unlocked the iPhone, has released a jailbreaking application for the iPhone 3GS codenamed “purplera1n.” It’s currently Windows-only (Windows 7 not supported), and requires the latest iTunes installed, and an iPhone 3GS with the 3.0 firmware.

  • One More Thing: The New Facebook iPhone App Will Allow Video Uploads

    Yesterday, we wrote about what Facebook was planning for the next major release of its iPhone app, version 3.0. The big update will contain 15 new features, probably none bigger than the addition of event management to the app, finally. But there was one thing Facebook developer Joe Hewitt didn’t mention yesterday, and it’s a big one: Video uploads from the iPhone 3GS. Hewitt… Read More

  • And Yet More Proof Of Why AT&T Needs To Keep That iPhone Exclusivity

    An internal AT&T memo that was leaked today is full of very impressive number regarding the iPhone 3GS — numbers that once again show why AT&T’s exclusive contract with Apple to sell the iPhone in the U.S. is so important. The iPhone 3GS’s launch gave AT&T its best sales day at its retail stores — ever, its second largest traffic day at retails stores, the… Read More

  • iPhone 3GS getting really, really burny and hot

    The Wired Gang has an investigation into the hot and burny iPhones 3GS that are coming out, finding that many are getting so hot as to be uncomfortable. Once these reach a certain point they become a toasty brown and could completely fail. Read More

  • The iPhone 3GS: Should You Get It?

    Disclosure: I have not bought an iPhone 3GS — I’m still unsure if I will. Apple gave me a review unit to play with for 60 days. I’ve had the new iPhone 3GS for a little over a week now. Using it day-to-day over the course of that time, I have a pretty good feel for it. A good enough feel to answer the question that every single person seems to be asking: “Should I… Read More

  • Headline: Afore you go shopping, get thee to the iPhone widget

    You’ll be glad to know that New York City is drowning in iPhones 3GS while the rest of the state is showing iffy availability, The iPhone 3GS availability widget is up and working quite well so you may want to head over and check things out before you drive all that way to the mall, are seduced by the Cinnabon, and then have to go home empty handed and then drink yourself into a stupor.

  • Users angry that Dev Team won't release the 3GS unlock/jailbreak

    The Interweb is a tizzy over the 3GS unlock/jailbreak and the Dev Teams decision not to release it until there is a new firmware update immanent. Why would they do this? Well, if they release now, Apple can close the hole with the new release, something they’d be loathe to do if the unlock happened closer to launch. While this isn’t very nice, it’s amazingly practical and… Read More
