  • 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!

It is also possible that the unlock exploit against BB 05.11.07 may not work on a 3GS with iBoot-359.3.2. This should be clarified before the masses run out an buy iPhone 3GS and end up with models that can not be unlocked or have to resort to a tethered JB / unlock.

      In any event, this is very exciting and great news. This will help many stuck people. Kudos to Geohot, he is definitely a highly motivated and super talented individual. Wow!

      Sorry to ask a stupid question, will this be another soft unlock or did GH come up with way to unlock like the 2G?

      Awesome!! This is great news. My current 3G's ultrasn0w unlock doesn't work anymore and I've tried everything I can to fix the on and off again signal to no avail but I've got another 3G on 5.09 bootloader and 5.11.07 baseband that's locked. I hope blacksn0w will work on this one!

      i understand how you feel that's why i switched to at&t. there's no point in owning an iPhone 3g or 3GS if you can't use the 3G...it's like having a ZR1 Corvette @ 630Horsepower and it's been governed down to 100horsepower and only has a max speed of 115mph...what's the point in having it?!!! But anywho this is wonderful news because i lost my chance of unlock when my first 3GS broke...the replacement i got came with 3.1 on 5.11 soo yeah this is GREAAT NEWS no matter how old it is! Thanks GEOHOT! I WILL DEFINITELY CONTRIBUTE TO YOU!
