Some of you guys may be on the lookout for a jailbreak for Apple’s iOS 4 on your 3GS or even a jailbreak your iPhone 4. Unfortunately there is no known jailbreak out for doing either one of these things. If you have upgraded to iOS 4 on your iPhone 3GS, you’ll just have to wait until a real jailbreak comes out from the jailbreaking community. All of the major players from that community release their jailbreaks for no cost at all. In fact the well known Dev Team won’t even take donations for the work they have put in on jailbreaking software.
goldra1n reportedly costs somewhere around $25 and from every report/forum I have seen across, is entirely bunk. None of the developers that have been part of the other jailbreaks have had anything to do with this jailbreak. My advice is, if it costs money, don’t do it. It’s not a real release because the people behind those releases don’t believe in charging.
That all being said, if you have an iPhone 3G and have upgraded to the iOS 4 and want to jailbreak your phone, you are in luck. Dev Team has the goods for you.
Summary: Currently, PwnageTool only works on previously jailbroken 3GS devices with the old bootrom.
IMPORTANT! Whenever you need to enter DFU mode, you will need to do so using PwnageTool.
