HowTo: Jailbreak iPhone 3Gs With purplera1n [Mac]

ATTENTION: also read HowTo: Jailbreak iPhone 3Gs With purplera1n [Windows]

In the previous article: Released: Purplera1n iPhone 3Gs Jailbreaking Tool For Mac i said that the jailbreaking process is the same as on windows so you should be good. It is, but with a couple of notes added.

And besides, i can diss you mac users by not creating a tutorial for mac, just because im a lazy funk. ( tryin not to curse, im on fire today…. ). So, let’s begin…

Go to purplera1n.com, and click the Mac logo to download the tool. Make sure your iPhone 3GS is connected to your computer.
Unzip the program if your browser didn’t already for you, and double-click the purplera1n icon to launch the app.

Open Freeze and tap ‘Install Cydia’. It will now download and install the package and then clean the installation. Wait till it says ‘Finished!’ and then just exit to home screen. If you still don’t have cydia, reboot the phone and use freeze again.
