Purplera1n for Mac OS X Released


We've just gotten word from TiPb forums that George Hotz has released his much anticipated Mac OS X version of purplea1n.

So you say you have an iPhone 3GS along with that jailbreak itch? Hit the link and get your download on. As always proceed at your own risk. TiPb and all of it's staff take zero responsibility to any wrong doings that may occur while using the software.

cyberbob says:

Has anyone tried this on 3.1?

Rudy says:

@ Vincent I don't know how to delete it. But you can try bosspreff and use that to hide it from the springboard

Matt74 says:

You can just delete the freeze.app folder via ssh, then respring.

I tried to download the file...upon opening it gives me an error about unsupported architecture

Mikechek says:

I've checked the info on the extracted file and it states application(intel)...does that mean it can only be opened on an intel mac???

mattweimer says:

Seems to be working great for me.

Joshua says:

Purplera1n works, but Winterboard does not work on the 3GS. It crashes and puts the phone in Safe Mode.

ftlprojects says:

i just used total commander and T-Pot, found the Freeeze.app folder removed it and rebooted the phone and it is gone... much easier than ssh
