Updated: Ultrasn0w, Redsn0w, and Winterboard Get iPhone 3GS Compatible
Three of the most popular tools on the scene have been updated to be fully compatible with the iPhone 3GS: The Dev Teams software unlock - ultrasn0w, their jailbreak software - redsn0w (via torrent for Windows, Mac, Linux), and saurik's popular iPhone theming tool, Winterboard (via Cydia).
Two hours ago saurik twittered the following:
That was followed by a quick tweet from the Dev Team:
So it looks like purplera1n forced the Dev Team to respond by finally releasing their jailbreak software. Good news for all of you iPhone 3GS owners out there today, now you have two jailbreak solutions for your iPhone 3GS. Which will you choose?
For more jailbreak discussion be sure to check out TiPb's Jailbreak Central.
Update: The Dev Team have updated their blog since the release of the new software, for more information on why they decided to release it and more check it out!

I was shaking with fear.
It looked like it was going to reboot, but it never did. I turned the phone on manually it shows the apple logo then turns off again. Interesting, looks like ill be restoring when i get home..... Any one else had this problem??
it worked great, very easy.
iphone 3gs 16gb,
jailboken via purplerain.
upgraded in cydia
Thats what I've done in the past, but never with a new update right around the corner with something I actually want on the phone.. I guess I just don't want to get used to backgrounder and catagories again, then the update come and take that away, and have to wait for the next break..(I think I just talked myself into waiting, as I can't imagine after 3.1, there will be any big updates for awhile)
Oh, i understand. Geez, that's a bummer. well, my friends all have email accounts on their phones, so thats why i don't see a big lost. But from your point of view, thats a hard decision to make lol
Yeah, my friends are holding me back, so is the lady friend, most of them don't have email available on their phones(for that quick pic send), so, surprisingly MMS would actually be useful to me. I'll be pissed at ATT if I wait for 3.1 and they remove the MMS feature cause its not ready yet.. lol. Thanks for the help.
Isn't that a little sketchy seeing as the owners from that site have been going through the judicial system to be incarcerated?
Guessing saurik needs to add a few more tweeks to winterboard. He had lots of work to do, so there's no surprise it's not perfect.
Hat's off to saurik for all his hard work.
BUT I need my jailbreak, time to dive in!!
that's a little bulky but definately a looker....... The rebel serpent is what I'm Rollin with and I love it
Actually it's like already booted but the springboard doesn't stRt properly, so u can still access uninstallation feature via pcsuite
