iPhone unlocks and jailbreaks continue to work after latest OS update, for a change of pace

Chris Ziegler

Typically, official iPhone OS updates from Apple mean days of hand-wringing in the jailbreaking crowd while the iPhone dev-team and its contemporaries get cracking on updated cracks. Here's a refreshing change of pace, though: with 3.0.1, it's business as usual. Turns out that both redsn0w and ultrasn0w work every bit as well on the latest update as they did on 3.0 -- the only catch is that you currently have to point to the 3.0 file when you're prompted for an IPSW. Yeah, the dev-team says that it's working on an updated version of redsn0w that recognizes the 3.0.1 update, but really, it's a pretty minor inconvenience compared to the usual post-update unlock drama -- not to insinuate that we don't like a little drama from time to time, of course.
