  • 3G Unlock VERY SOON - Works on ALL Basebands?
    EDIT: Yup, 3G unlock works on 02.28.00 modem firmware (baseband). Check Update 3 on the dev team blog post!

    2ND Edit: The Dev Team says the yellowsn0w Cydia package will be up as soon as the dev team member in charge of the repo fixes a file permission error. See update 3 on the dev team blog post

    3rd Edit: If you do NOT have the 02.28.00 bootloader, and are going to want to unlock - do yourself a favor. Back up your stuff now, restore to a fresh 2.2 IN ITUNES, then use PwnageTool to make that a jailbroken 2.2 with 02.28.00 baseband (this guide). That way you won't have to when the unlock is released here shortly.

    4th Edit: Its out.

    Well, the dev team has posted another blog entry earlier today. The contents are purely this:

    Now, that in binary translates to vtaber 61060174. What is that? A German blog surmises vtaber is most likely ROT13 code. EDIT: The German guys found that info from a comment on the Dev blog apparently... (hi, Germans ) In that case, the post would translate to IGNORE 61060174. Post 61060174 on the Dev Team blog said, in a nutshell, that you'd need to preserve your baseband at the 02.11.07 version (check Settings > General > About > Modem Firmware to find your baseband version) if you wanted a 3G software unlock on your iPhone.

    Could the dev team be letting us know to ignore that part now? That the yellowsn0w release, coming up today, will work on the newer baseband as well?

    A few hundred thousand 02.28.00 baseband users who would like to unlock their 3G iPhones sure hope so.

      This is AWESOME news for everyone with 2.28.00 baseband! I'm lucky to have 2.11 baseband for both my iPhone 3G's, but I'm glad to hear this because it means we can update to 2.2 Firmware AND then unlock, right?

      (One quick question, jailbreaking for 2.2 is only available for WinPwn which is for Mac only right?)

      You can use quickpwn to jailbreak 2.2 win or os x. Or you can use Pwnage tool for OS X.

      Winpwn is for Windows as you can tell from the "win" part obviously. Winpwn as far as I knw has not been updated in ages to work on 2.2.

      Quickpwn and Pwnage tool are for Mac. QP is also for windows

      Sorry about that lol, the alcohol is already getting to me I guess. :P

      I did mean Pwnage Tool.

      So QuickPwn was updated to Jailbreak 2.2 on Windows? Sweet! I'm going to update then, since baseband won't matter now.

      Very nice. I'm looking forward to the release to see the outcomes. I'm on contract with AT&T, so I won't need it now, but if I decided to sell, it will certainly help.

      This is the greatest Christmas gift ever! Probably the best gift I have ever received I just wonder if I will have to restore to unlock my phone. Either way this is a great treat for all us iPhone 3G owners.

      Happy New Year to all!!!!!!!!!!!!!
