Edit: Here is a tutorial. The whole process takes under 10 mins.
Okay, so what does using purplera1n mean later down the road when dev Team gets a jb?
Also, do I still need to back up those two files everyone seems so worried about?
And finally, does Ultrasn0w work with this?
the Dev has said wait!
but clearly the choice is up to a individual. they have said to wait and that it might risk if you want to jailbreak in the future, nobody knows not even the DEV team and probably not Apple. Purplerain is not from the Dev team from a 19 kid. I have seen multiple thread some with succes other bricking there phones with purple rain what you do is up too you and 1st you unlock then you Jailbreak if you don't know how then it's at your own risk and still even so!
My 1st JB ever. Looks fine. Cydia asks me to update some packages, shall I do it ?
Yes update Cydia as this updates core files. Purplera1n has been working great and he is a real talented person. Hopefully Purplera1n continues to be supported even if/when the dev team releases their JB. Purplera1n does not force you to restore in order to JB.
it has been working perfectly well for me so far!
after using http://purplera1n.com/ jailbreak, how are people finding the iPhone3GS? Slower then usual after you jailbreak or speeds are fine?
Does this mean that when the unlock is out from the dev team that we won't be able to use it?
I am just a tad nervous when it comes to the jailbreaking part, i don't want to mess anything up, hence so many questions.
hmmm... okay, maybe i will finally bite the bullet. any word on winterboard? if it isn't working, do we know if it'll just be a winterboard update to fix it? or will we need to rejailbreak to fix it?
I have been using the JB since it was released without any issues. Everything has been very smooth so far. If you decide to not like it you can just restore and JB is gone. I read in another thread that people were using the purplera1n JB with ultrasn0w to unlock, i have not tried this however since I am on AT&T no don't need to unlock. No slow down in fact backgrounder and all other things i have tried seem to work much better since the phone has more resources.
Thanks for your prompt response. So now that the phone is jailbroken, we can SSH into the phone and make modifications of course right?
so far this has been working well. my only issue is that when trying to use the g-maps app as well as slacker radio, the phone wont let both applications use their audio at the same time. also spotlight does not search my hidden apps.
i am going back to 3.0 non jb for the time being. hopefully apple will release their 3.1 update soon so i can jb through dev team, but i doubt these issues will be fixed
i do have to hand it to geohot though, this was a very simple jb, much simpler and easier than dev team!
That was the easiest, fastest jailbreak yet... worked perfectly for me!

Any 3G-esque slowdowns?
soo does winterboard work? iPhone3GS JB???
These are the main questions i need answered, then off i go home after work and jb my phone
While I have not tried it, I have read that Winterboard still does not work.
Thanks to all responding.
Still waiting for the answer to the Ultrasn0w question. Does ultrasn0w work with this?
Also-what about the two files from iTunes that Apple sends to the GS?
I really need an answer to these questions PLEASE. The answers to them will determine whether I go to 3 GS or stick with the 3G.
i have heard that ultrasnow is working:

Hmm okay fixed the wifi issue , just restored re jailbroke but this time i used my mac and not windows.....
....Just prooves again macs are the way forward
Im now loving my iphone 3GS unlocked and fully operational
winterboard still up there right now, and will wait for the confirmed answer!
anyone know if its possible to use g-maps and slacker radio at the same time using backgrounder? if slacker is running in the background and so is g-maps.. i can only have one apps audio work
Does SBSettings work on 3GS?
Yeah I'm using it successfully.
Uh oh, ran into a problem. I installed qTweeter and now Springboard keeps going into Safe Mode.
Attempting to uninstall...
Uninstalled and good to go! Word of advice: Don't install qTweeter. ;-)
100% works on my factory unlocked 3Gs. Enjoy!
Purple Ra1n for Mac Available
It sounds like you have not had to do this:
This is the process to back up certain temp files from itunes.
Does anyone using purplera1n have to do this?
Why is this such a big deal for dev team? They provided the link to the tutorial for it. If purplera1n doesn't need it, why are people backing these up?
i didnt look any of that up. all i did was click the button and my iphone was jailbroken. very easy.
