If you’ve got an iPhone 3GS and you want to jailbreak it, there’s a brand new solution to use, known as purplera1n and created by developer George Hotz. You’ll be able to download the jailbreak software from here and you need to know that it only works on a Windows PC.
Forget about Windows 7 or a Mac, though, since they’re not supported at the moment. You’ll also need an iPhone 3GS with 3.0 firmware on board and the newest iTunes version, to install the jailbreak. Purplera1n is available in a beta version, so you should backup all the data on your iPhone before proceeding.
All you need to do in order to jailbreak your iPhone is download the software, connect the iPhone to your PC, click on “make it ra1n”, wait, run Freeze on bootup (installer app) and then a pretty foolproof install process will start. More details on the hacker’s blog here.
