  • blacksn0w coming soon! Will unlock 05.11.07!



    geohot has come through once again for the iPhone community. Earlier this morning he posted a video of blacksn0w:

    blacksn0w will unlock both the 3GS and 3G iPhones running 05.11.07 to use on any gsm carrier. blacksn0w will be bundled into a new blackra1n that will be available on November 4th. So if you accidentally updated or restored to 3.1.2 and lost your unlock, you are in luck!

    And of course you can find detailed instructions here on MMi on how to do it when the new blackra1n and blacksn0w are released!

    Enjoy!

      Just donated $20 bucks.

      It's the second time I have donated to his cause.

      The kid is a genius! He will be a multi millionaire in no time.

      You ever wander how much Apple watches these forums?

      You think Apple would ever hire GeoHot just to stop his abilities being used on the GOOD side? Like the satellite companies did with that sat genius.

      Think their pay would be more than our donations?

      Not popping bubbles, just a thought that runs thru my head.

      so does this mean that since i have a 3G on 3.0 firmware still, i can do a regular update in iTunes to the official 3.1.2 firmware which will update the carrier settings & baseband, then run blackra1n without ANY problems like 3G owners were experiencing when trying to jailbreak, THEN run blacksn0w to unlock the 3.1.2 firmware's carrier? So in theory....it'll be like my 3.0 is now, jailbroken, unlocked, fully functional only it'll be like that on 3.1.2? let me know!

      oh...and i'll HAVE my carrier logo and my carrier will display in the settings app instead of saying "not available" right?

      You are correct on all counts. If I were you I'd wait a day or two, geohot usually has several RC's in the days following initial releases.

      Get out of my mind. I was thinking this exact thing. I actually posted about the sat guy also.

Man if they ever did get him that would be bad. Just think that the teams would have to go against him on hacking it lol. Or it could be like the big satellite hacker who worked for the company but then took joy in breaking the encryption they used a few weeks later.

      WOW so I am not crazy, well aleast not alone.

      So think if two are thinking it on here you think that someone that can sign a check is thinking the same thing?

      Honestly it would have to be up to GeoHot on whether he wants to keep his superhero uniform or turn it in.

      And since I see you said he said, he handed in a resume, then it can only get worse.

      And incase you did not know it even looks like any work around for the poor person to get satellite is never to be seen again. The sat genius doesnt do it any more. Heard he got paid big bucks to stay out.
