Jailbreaking iPhone OS 3.0.1: Pick redsn0w, avoid purplera1n

We have recently seen Apple offer an update, the first since 3.0 and as always OS updates poses an interesting game of wait and see for those who have jailbroken and or unlocked their important].
Typically, once an update is released, we (those who have jailbroken) hate to wait to update our iPhones until the Dev Team or George Hotz released an update to theirimportant software.
Well, the iPhone OS 3.0.1 update comes with a little bit of good news – those tools are already available.
According to a few recent postings;
From the Dev-Team:

“You can re-use redsn0w v0.8 we released a few weeks ago to jailbreak today’s 3.0.1 update. Just let iTunes update or restore you to official 3.0.1 then run redsn0w. The only “trick” is that when redsn0w asks you to identify the IPSW used, point it at the 3.0 IPSW instead of the 3.0.1 one. After the jailbreak, reinstall ultrasn0w 0.9 if you need the unlock.”

From George Hotz:

“3.0.1 isn’t supported by ra1n, idk why. i recommend redsn0w.”

Basically, it looks like you need to choose the sn0w instead of the ra1n if you are running 3.0.1.
