Jailbeak and Unlock iPhone 3.1

Written By Unknown on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 | 6:03 AM


Jailbreak iPhone 3.1

Today the iPhone 3.1 update was released to the public. This update fixes a lot of bugs that were present in the iPhone OS 3.0 firmware. If you want to jailbreak or unlock your device, follow the steps below. If you have an unlocked iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS do not update just yet, updating will permanently lock your device and the ultrasn0w unlocking software won't work.

The jailbreak has not been released yet, but you can do the following to prepare for it.

How to Jailbreak iPhone 3.1Jailbreak and unlock iPhone 3.1

1. You must update to iPhone 3.1 first. After updating, either locate your iPhone 3.1 IPSW file or download it using any of the links below. Remember, don't use Safari to download. Safari can't download .IPSW files properly, use a different browser!

2. Download redsn0w (not up yet, stay tuned!).

3. Follow the jailbreaking guide at the Jailbreak iPhone 3.1 post (not up yet).

Unlock iPhone 3.1

To software unlock iPhone 3.1, you must create a custom firmware that uses the current baseband. The iPhone 3.1 update updates the baseband to a newer one that permanently blocks the software unlock. A guide on how to unlock iPhone 3.1 this will be up later.

Thanks... I love this website and the daily emails.

I heard that 3.1 would make your iPhone immune to being jailbroken--meaning you will never be able to jailbreak it again. Apparently this is especially a problem with the 3GS. Is this true or is a solution available? This info from Cydia.

September 9, 2009 at 6:16 AM

So, can we just use redsn0w 0.8 ?

September 9, 2009 at 6:21 AM

I doubt they would be telling you to update to 3.1 first if you couldn't jailbreak it.

September 9, 2009 at 6:28 AM

I opened Cydia and it says DO NOT upgrade to 3.1 unless you want to lose your JB. If you notice above, the article does not go into detail about JB with OS 3.1. For those that unlock, definitely stay away. You can try at your own risk to JB but I'd wait until you get official word. This site is no longer the official site for JB.

Is it safe to upgrade to iTunes 9 before we do the upgrade to 3.1 + jailbreaking?

Go ahead and update to iTunes 9 if they tell you that you have to have a lower iTunes I will put a video on YouTube to downgrade to a lower iTunes. Follow me on Twitter @ Twitter.com/iHail

There is no need 2 download 3.1 right now since apple will most likely have another update, 3.1.1, after they release the MMS update on the 25th. So I will wait til then 2 update & the JB should b out by then as well.

September 9, 2009 at 7:15 AM

we can't wait! :)

September 9, 2009 at 7:19 AM

I doubt there will be another update just for AT&T customers, there will prolly just be a carrier update to unlock MMS. Also, if we want to update early to see the feature and JB later do we need to do a full restore before updateing to 3.1

Jailbeak lol :)

September 9, 2009 at 7:23 AM

Perhaps the MMS update is within this one.

September 9, 2009 at 7:23 AM

Need something to fix the poor battery on the 3gs fingers crossed we get this 3.1jailbroken and it delivers.....

September 9, 2009 at 7:26 AM

I connected my 2G 3.0 jailbroken iPod Touch into another PC with a fresh install of iTunes 9.0 and it didn't have any problems with it. Still don't know if it's possible to sync apps (legit and cracked) with the iTouch and it being jailbroken... Does anyone have any more answers?

September 9, 2009 at 7:59 AM

i have a jailbroken iphone now can i follow these steps when the new redsnow comes out ?

September 9, 2009 at 8:43 AM

3.0 had mms. if u tell at&t u have a different phone, then u can get mms

September 9, 2009 at 8:54 AM

You can sync legit and cracked apps, I am able to as of now...but makesure when u install apps thru instalous, to have it as a clean install with iTunes sync turned on...can't wait for the JB

September 9, 2009 at 10:34 AM

I downloaded 3.1 before reading this stuff & I seem to be unable to jail break as I have in the past. Does "permanently" unable to break it really mean permanent?

I must say that this is really early to think about the jailbreak but any thing else when ever JB available u must need these files to JB so download them as soon as possible.

and they also mentioned that what people are asking where when JB and unlock available this will be updated in this thread :)

2. Download redsn0w (not up yet, stay tuned!).

3. Follow the jailbreaking guide at the Jailbreak iPhone 3.1 post (not up yet).

yes this is okay to do and just DONT upgrade your OS on the jailbroken device!

Chris Jones
September 9, 2009 at 1:24 PM

As of now there all developers and iPhone crackers are trying to find a solution they said that as a precaution to warn ppl NOT to do it til one solution is found!

September 9, 2009 at 1:40 PM

MMS is already supported, I'm in canada and MMS works fine, its just ATT that doesn't do it. nothing to do with the iphone.

I restored my phone (thanks to HomeLeopard) not knowing about the update. I went to jailbreak again. It does not work for me. It was stuck on the downloading jailbreak screen. I wanna know about a downgrade ASAP. And btw... Dont download the homeleopard theme it looks cool but didnt work

Maybe he is learning English a$$hole. It's not like everyone is lucky enough to be born in the U.S. English is sometimes someone's second language, so ease up... Ha Ha Ha.....

September 28, 2009 at 12:53 PM

I have the 3.1 upgrade and the new 9.0 itunes every time i jailbreak the phone says dowloading jailbreak data and keeps loading and does nothing for minites and shuts of what am i diong wrong

September 29, 2009 at 3:23 AM

Apple is controlling the game after 3.1 updates and the jailbreak community has no answers to it. :(

Apple is like communist dictators.... They like to control their consumers coz they have the power.

I hope one day someone can changes it and make their products more freedom.

September 30, 2009 at 9:01 AM

No, actually there is a Mac version of the 3.1 jailbreak. This is actually the usual Mac users general snobbery against PC users.

September 30, 2009 at 11:30 AM

I believe apple has superior products to anything on the market. However, they also have superior Nazi tenancies. They control something you, and I own. They should have no influences on how I decided to use something that is no longer theirs.

September 30, 2009 at 5:29 PM

You are right...

Please be considerate.

Maybe he is trying his very best to tell his concerns to us, as we all know that English is the main medium to communicate here...no matter where we lived.

If he speaks his own language (if he is not an english-speaking individual..), definitely, we will not able to understand him.. and you will be more pissed off. :P

Hi! I have a terrible problem. My sister didn't realised and downloaded the 3.1 soft for the 3gs. When will the software to unblock the iphone appears? Thank youuuu

October 9, 2009 at 12:37 AM

I have a brand new 3Gs which running FW 3.1 that I haven't been able to use. I have been reading around and it looks like there are a ton of people in the same situation. Someone please come up with a JB for 3.1.

October 16, 2009 at 10:14 PM

Thanks for your contineuous efforts to unlock the iphones.fighting with apple who do not care morthan a million customers around the world and do not respect of their thoughts.

here i could not understood what is the use of downloading the IPSW 3.1 and when and how to use it while jail breaking, YOU HAVE NOT STATED ANY STEP TO USE THIS FILE, BUT YOU HAVE SAID HOW TO USE IPSW 3.0 and 3.0 is recognised by redsnow but not the file 3.1

so give me a hint to jail break by using resnow 0.8 with the file 3.1 ............. and 3.0 (mixedup ???)
and again i have attempted twice to jail break my 3.1 i phone and every time redsnow stucked at "waiting for phone to reboot" and show no progress in the bar.

Hi Michael,

I got mine iphone 3gs 3 weeks ago from the UK. I charged and never used it, as is must be locked or jailbreak. Even if i inserted a european sim card it only says "No sim card installed - Insert a valid Sim with no pin lock to activate the phone" I can only use it for emergency calls.

Could you please help me, i dont really know what to do? I cant even see what firmware/version is..

thanking you in advance
