Jailbreak iPhone 3GS 3.0 with purplera1n

Written By Unknown on Friday, June 26, 2009 | 8:13 AM


Do you want to jailbreak iPhone 3GS 3.0? You can jailbreak it with either redsn0w or purplera1n, but purplera1n is the easiest jailbreak software to use for the iPhone 3GS. Read on for a step-by-step tutorial on how to use purplera1n.

Disclaimer: We are not responsible for anything that happens to your iPhone 3GS as a result of using this software. Jailbreaking your iPhone 3GS will void your warranty.

purplera1n RC 2 will only work on the iPhone 3GS 3.0 firmware!

First download the purplera1n RC2 software for either Windows or Mac from here.

1. Open the purplera1n program

2. Click the "Make it Ra1n" button

purplera1n - Make it Ra1n

3. The purplera1n window will have a "Waiting for iPhone" message. Your iPhone 3GS will go in to recovery mode and you will notice a picture of Geohot next to an iPhone 3GS. purplera1n is working in the background. Once your iPhone 3GS is successfully jailbroken you will see a "Done! Wait..." message in the purplera1n window. Your iPhone 3GS will reboot and you should see an icon on your iPhone 3GS springboard that says "Freeze".

4. Tap the Freeze icon to launch the Freeze app. The Freeze app will allow you to download and install Cydia. Tap the "Install Cydia" button to install Cydia. Make sure you have internet connection!

5. Your iPhone 3GS is now downloading the Cydia application, once the download is complete you will need to reboot your iPhone 3GS.

6. After you've successfully downloaded the Cydia application and rebooted your iPhone 3GS, you should see the Cydia icon on your SpringBoard.
