    Apple iPhone 3G finally unlocked by the Dev-Team

    Well this has been a long time coming. It seems that the iPhone Dev-Team has finally done the impossible -- they've gone and unlocked the iPhone 3G. The hack isn't out yet (the team says they're shooting for a December 31st release), and it requires that you've got a baseband of 2.11.07 or earlier, but when it drops, the crew seems fairly confident it will result in freedom from carrier oppression. The team is packaging the app -- formerly codenamed "yellowsn0w" -- into a user-friendly app a la PwnageTool and QuickPwn. Of course, you know how this cat and mouse game goes by now, so don't be surprised when Jobs and company come calling with an update that adds toast making to the official menu, but breaks your breaks all over again.

    For those of you that have updated through iTunes to Firmware 2.2 and have the 2.28 baseband you will not be able to use this initial release to unlock your phone. There is no way to downgrade your baseband at this time.

    3G Unlock



    We have been working hard on a few other things. The main one being the 3G unlock codenamed “yellowsn0w”. This is now completed and is currently being packaged into a user-friendly application with the simplicity that you see in QuickPwn or BootNeuter.
    • The target release date for the unlock is New Year’s Eve 2008.
    • This unlock method is available to iPhone 3Gs that have 2.11.07 baseband or earlier, we did [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    • You can tell what version baseband you have by going to Settings->General->About->Modem Firmware
    • The unlock requires a jailbroken 3G iPhone. It’ll be installable via Cydia and so it doesn’t matter if you have a Mac or PC.
    • Please refrain from updating your baseband, regardless of what version you’re at. We’ll have complete directions on New Year’s Eve.
    • We’ll stream a live demo of the unlock before Christmas (see below)
    Update: Live Demo
    Sometime before Christmas, MuscleNerd will show a live demo of the unlock (and some other random nucleus and pwnage stuff). It’ll be streamed live via the awesome [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], and announced via his [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] just as the broadcast begins.
