Jailbroken iPhone 3g 3.0 firmware

Category: iPhone

Thanks to the iPhone Dev-Team for releasing the Pwnage Tool 3.0, I was able to upgrade to the jailbroken 3.0 firmware. The install process went very smoothly. I followed a similar procedure to what they demo’d on their youtube video. Some of my favorite jailbroken apps don’t work with the new firmware. Here are my findings:


  • Cycorder: Yes
  • OpenSSH: Yes
  • SBS Settings: Yes
  • Icy: Yes
  • Cydia: Stability issues
  • PdaNet: Yes, but possible stability issues
  • Winterboard: Mostly, some themes weren’t stable
  • Pwnplayer: no
  • Snapture: no
  • NES: no

Overall the new 3.0 features were well worth upgrading. The only app I will really miss is Pwn player and I hope there will be a similar replacement (it’s no longer maintained).  As for the other apps, I’m sure they’ll be getting updates soon.  Please let me know what apps you have working.

    After an update to Cydia, it seems to be working well now. Still hoping for PdaNet to stabilize. All in all, the jailbroken 3.0 firmware is working well!
