With a new OS always comes a new jailbreak… As always, the Dev Team has been working day and night to bring us a reliable jailbreak for iPhone 3.1.

So far, only a Mac version of PwnageTool is available but the Team is working on updating RedSn0w for both Mac and PC. We just have to be patient.

It is also important to note that there is no jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS so far. There finally is a jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS 3.1. It’s a little tricky though so please make sure you read the information below. I wrote a couple tutorials on how to jailbreak iPhone 3.1 using PwnageTool.

Jailbreak iPhone 2G on 3.1

As I mentioned above, there is only a Mac version of PwnageTool to jailbreak the iPhone 2G 3.1 so far. You can read my step by step guide on how to use PwnageTool for the iPhone 2G. A PC version of RedSn0w is in the work.

Jailbreak iPhone 3G on 3.1

Just like for the iPhone 2G, the only way to jailbreak the iPhone 3G 3.1 so far is to use PwnageTool for Mac. No PC version yet. Have a look at the tutorial I wrote on how to use PwnageTool for the iPhone 3G.

Jailbreak iPhone 3GS on 3.1

If your iPhone 3GS has 3.1 preinstalled and is not Pwned then there is no tested jailbreak solution at the moment. In other words, if you are on a pwned version of 3.0 or 3.0.1 (either using PwnageTool, RedSn0w, or PurpleRa1n), then you are fine; just follow this tutorial. If you updated to 3.1, you will have to wait for another method. We don’t know when this other method will be available.

There is only a PwnageTool version of the jailbreak for Mac OS X available but there is a workaround. If you have a PC and want to update to a custom jailbroken 3.1 firmware, follow this tutorial.

I will be updating this post as the news come. I also suggest you check our iPhone jailbreak page that always contains the most up to date information about jailbreaking (tutorials, guides, etc…). And of course, you can always follow me on Twitter.

    Does Apple finally find the way to scelled the jail?

    • hahah.. yeah.
      Dude thanks for the great guide.

  • I got angry customers because of 3.1 sim lock. But nowadays you don´t buy an iphone anymore. It is volksphone now.

  • Amy

    I feel so sad as my phone has locked by upgrade to 3.1 FW. Now my iPhone can be only a calculator…-_-“.

    Hope the dev-team can fix this problem as soon as possible.

  • bob

    maybe i will buy a mac laptop to jailbreak my iphone and after it is unlocked i will return my mac laptop for a refund Thats one way to get ur iphone working

  • Mathew

    What Iphone lost is gain to Nokia e97. I lost all the pride that I had to own an iphone after as my phone has locked by upgrade to 3.1 FW. Now my iPhone is a piece of plastic that made in china. By the way it is giving a massage that I can use for emergency call and I tried 999 “error in connection” appeared on the screen.

    hi 🙂

    i did downgrade a 3.1 / 3G iphone to 3.0 using the old redsn0w (it worked somehow on XP) xD
    not on Vista.

    then i added the source ultrasn0w from Cydia and installed it to unlock!
    but it didnt!

    is it something in the new update makes the iphone not to be unlocked at all!
    even if am running the iphone on 3.0 jailbroken firmware???

    thanx.

  • Eric

    how did you downgrade from 3.1 to 3.0?!

  • Adnan Ghosheh

    Hey Eric 🙂

    I used redsn0w!! (on XP) not Vista! And it worked!
    The device is working but no service!
    Needs to unlock!
    I tried Ultrasn0w from Cydia but it didn’t unlock it.
    Now I have an iPod LOL

  • Eric

    how did downgrade it?! i try on my iphone3G but it give me error

  • Adnan Ghosheh

    did you run ‘redsn0w’ on Windows XP??

    coz it worked for me on XP not Vista

    and i used the firmware (iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw)

    🙂

  • True Colors

    Downgrading from 3.1 to 3.0 still won’t change the baseband,thus you can’t unlock it using redsn0w.

  • True Colors

    *using Ultrasn0w 😀

  • Adnan Ghosheh

    Can’t. Wait for a solution to unlock 😐

    the market here (Dubai) is going crazy LOL

    LOCKED DEVICES (from the US) lol

    it’s cheaper than the factory unlocked here!

  • Eric

    OMG?! i spend 4 hours to jailbreak the iPhone 3G 3.1 and the final results?! i can’t run any application?!

  • Adnan Ghosheh

    Eric!

    do it again, keep trying until it works

    this is what happen with me 😉

  • bob

  • bob

  • Adnan Ghosheh

    Bob!
    i don’t think that apple will help people to jailbreak thier iphone’s by fixing issues in the new update! LOL

    I looked up the OS 3.2 and found nothing!
    Rumors xD

    cheers.

  • Eric

    yup yup mine is XP version. i’m now hang here wif 3.1 firmware 05.11.07?! help! help!

  • Adnan Ghosheh
  • bob

    Eric are u ok i worry for u u take this unlock so serious take it easy its only a stupid 500 dollar phone not worth spending so much time falling apart get a grip of urself

  • bob

  • Adnan Ghosheh

    I have also gone down the wrong route.

    The obvious point here is that those of us who said yes to the baseband update have screwed our phones up – for now?
    Those who didn’t are still able to get back to 3.0. Lucky beggers.

    All I wanted was to change my tones – I am so SICK of that charging noise. BRRRING! And to be able to have my own message tone back would be fantastic – that’s it. Why can’t Apple just release an official app that allows us to modify all ringtones as ToneFX did from Cydia.

    BS, man BS.

    Hi,
    i have the same problem–> i upgraded my iPhone and it is now locked!
    what is worse –> i was very panic, so i googled and found a website : http://automaticiphoneunlocker.com/members.php
    i paid $29.99 hoping that i’d be able to use my iPhone again… but! i logged on using the password they gave me, and found this message later:
    DO NOT UPGRADE YOUR IPHONE TO VERSION 3.1 UNTIL WE HAVE RELEASED AN UPDATED UNLOCKER FOR THE 3.1 FIRMWARE

    *$%#@&*^%$#@@&#*#(!!!!!! i was wordless!! i paid $30!!! for nothing!!!!!!
    i know this is a bit irrelevant but anyone know how i can get my money back?
    please…….

  • Adnan Ghosheh
