    Hi guys, i think i may be able to create an untethered iphone 3gs jailbreak if i can find this file, apple moved the file, so if i could just have some information on this, i might be able to copy the code into the new location, or create my own. thanks in advance!

    I don't think you quite understand the complexity of this matter. The bootrom is not in a folder. It is not in the filesystem at all. It is stored on a silicon chip which is flashable only at the factory. You cannot replace, move or reprogram the bootrom. Interaction with the bootrom is very limited...it responds to only a very few commands.

    I commend your enthusiasm, but I think once again that you are setting your sights a little high. Indeed, if you were a hacker capable of doing what you hope to do, you wouldn't need to ask this question at all!

    well see, its not that i dont think im not capable of doing it, i just needed a few background information on this, such as how they hacked it the other times, and maybe now i can incorporate my own hack into the new iboot, wherever apple moved it too. i know that apple switched the chips dont get me wrong, i just thought it was accessible via ssh. a little more information on geohot and the dev teams attempts at this would be nice. im always up for a challenge.

    I can assure you this is gonna be much more difficult than you think. :rolleyes: I believe it is the foolishness of your youth involved here.

    Based on your posts in this forum so far, even in this thread, I honestly doubt you are up to this. :cool:

    If this was gonna be something manageable, then it would have been done and released already. Even GeoHot has not tackled this yet.

    Are you sure you aren't the same person as "iPhonePwned" on Twitter ? He boasted of an untethered jailbreak and when GeoHot called him out, he pulled down his Twitter page and disappeared.

    The only way to acces it is to dump it. However, that requires literal disassembly of the iPhone and the destruction of the chip. Also, there is a high chance for failure.

    Like others have said, it ain't a file you can copy/paste. You can only interact with it.
