iphone 3.0.1

As I predicted this morning, Apple didn’t realease a 3.1 but a 3.0.1 update to the iPhone OS. The firmware update is supposed to fix the SMS vulnerability that we talked about earlier this week.

The firmware 3.0.1 update is available through iTunes. However, as usual when the iPhone OS is updated, jailbreakers (and unlockers) should stay away from it should they want to keep their jailbreak. Updating to 3.0.1 will remove the jailbreak!

In a hypocritical statement about the fix, an Apple rep said:

We appreciate the information provided to us about SMS vulnerabilities which affect several mobile phone platforms. This morning, less than 24 hours after a demonstration of this exploit, we’ve issued a free software update that eliminates the vulnerability from the iPhone. Contrary to what’s been reported, no one has been able to take control of the iPhone to gain access to personal information using this exploit.

I say it’s hypocritical because Apple had been warned about this for over a month.

So again, if you want to keep your jailbreak or unlock, do not update. Let’s wait to see what the Dev Team has to say about this update.

I will update the iPhone downloads page with the latest firmwares as soon as I get a hold of them.

    I can confirm you can upgrade and run redsn0w 0.8 on the 3gs. Dont think it works with ultrasn0w yet or purplera1n

  • @Andrew you jailbroke your iPhone 3GS running 3.0.1 with RedSn0w 0.8?

  • Andrew Wright

    yeah. I used the firmwar 3.0.ipsw in the redsn0w 0.8 menu and have everything working as it was before. Been confirmed by others on another site I use as well

  • OK, but that means you’re still using 3.0. So you just updated and downgraded. I guess you’re back to square 1…. Or am I missing something?

  • Andrew Wright

    No, update to new firmware in itunes, run redsnow and tell it you are using 3.0 and then update. In my settings it is telling me my software is 3.0.1 (7A400)

  • Interesting….

  • VistaUSer

    Any chances this will fix the Battery issue…. Its becoming a pain in the ass. My iPhone is loosing Juice right in front of me….

  • Not sure about that. I think we’ll have to wait for 3.1 to fix battery issues…

  • Jackzilla

    I can confirm same thing. I has to restore and install 3.0.1 and I just used redsn0w to rejailbreak.

  • Jackzilla

    well, now when I tried to install WinterBoard it went to reboot and didn’t work..

  • yunito

    do i need to restore jailbroken iphone first before updating or just go straight to update button?

  • Rn3sto

    I’d just wait till at least a 3.1 update 😛
    Don’t want to reinstall all my cydia programs. xD

  • @Rn3sto Same here!

  • Jacky

    any new thing in 3.0.1 that are make us interested?

  • D

    Will iPod touch 2G also get this firmware? If yes will anything new happen to it? Or it will only stay at 3.0?
