George Hotz was the first to release a jailbreak app for the iPhone 3GS -- the only problem was that it was only available for Windows. Now there's a Mac-based jailbreak solution for the 3GS, Purplera1n RC2a has been released for the Mac. iPhoneHacks.com has posted a detailed step-by-step of the process.

  • never mind the Jail break

    Wheres the VOIP options. Never mind jail breaking the system. Sure that's nifty. But I would actually consider one of these toys if they let me use the Phone over IP.

    I think being able to make a cell call where needed, on any network is Great, but a full hybred using CELL and WiFi for Tellecom is so much better.

    Now I apologize if this has already been fixed and I simply missed it's passing. However the last I looked, it was not an option, and yet with the iPhone there really so little not on the table as an option.
