Jailbreak for iPhone 3GS iOS 4.1 Won’t Be Released Until November

GreenPois0n is going to be released on Sunday. It will jailbreak the iPhone 4, iPad, and iPod Touch 4G. It won't however jailbreak the iPhone 3GS. So what happens to those of you who have an iPhone 3GS?

Well, yesterday we confirmed that Comex is working on a jailbreak for the iPhone 3GS but if I were you, I wouldn't hold my breath too much on that as MuscleNerd made it clear that such a jailbreak wouldn't be released until November, when iOS 4.2 is released...

iPhone 4.1 Jailbreak: This is Where We’re At

The forums and blogs are filling up quickly with the most common question out in the iPhone world, "Where is the 4.1 Jailbreak?'. The jailbreak was revealed when a widely known hacker, pod2g, posted the iBSS decryption keys for the iPhone 4.

The exploit used was codenamed SHAtter, and it is in the bootrom and can not be fixed due to the fact it resides in the hardware...

HDR Capabilities Coming to the iPhone 3GS?

Is HDR photo capabilities coming to the iPhone 3GS? It seems like it looking at the discovery 9 to 5 Mac made of what appears to be a future HDR feature in the 3GS. As you can see in this image, there are two icons for the HDR feature inside the SDK. One clearly is for the iPhone 4 Retina Display, and the other is for an iPhone without the Retina Display, which most likely is the iPhone 3GS.

This seems to be pretty good news if it is indeed for real. On the other hand, it could very well be a feature that Apple decided to drop at the last minute which would mean the 3GS will never get HDR...

Update on the GreenPois0n Jailbreak for iPhone

It seems GreenPois0n is going to be the next jailbreak for iOS 4.1 thanks to a new bootrom exploit that will supposedly work for the iPhone 4, the iPad, as well as the new iPod Touch.

Because everyone wants to know what's going on, the Chronic Dev Team gave a "no-update update" on their blog about the future potential GreenPois0n jailbreak, saying things were going swimmingly, to paraphrase them.

I guess the team has been receiving many emails and tweets from people eagerly waiting for a jailbreak for iOS 4.1. Here is the full update given by the Chronic Dev Team:

Does Apple Game Center Only Allow 500 Friends?

As we reported last week Apple unveiled a special section in the App Store that features entries compatible with Game Center. This new iOS 4.1 feature is a social gaming network that allows you to compete against as many friends as you can convince to accept your requests. Apparently that isn't the case if your friend tally goes beyond 500.

TiPb has a story about an employee running into issues once their friend counter gets to 500. Beyond that it appears that once you delete a friend and you're at 499 another request is then allowed through which bumps your tally to the seemingly restricted 500...
