  • 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:

    01110110
    01110100
    01100001
    01100010
    01100101
    01110010
    00100000
    00110110
    00110001
    00110000
    00110110
    00110000
    00110001
    00110111
    00110100
    00100000
    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.

      ok...tell me if this is a stupid question, but would a software mod enable the iPhone 3G service to work on the T-Mobile 3G network?

      The iPhone chipset is NOT capable of 1700 mhz.

      Unless you plan to sell yours then it's pointless to unlock.

      Some "Dingleberry" person on the dev blog is saying that it's out now. But no, it's not. Dev-Team said they will update when it's out, and I'm sure if it was, it'll be quite hectic here in no time.

      You won't need your computer, it's all through Cydia.

      In the blog comments it says 11:59 PST as that's where the dev team that's releasing it is located.

      Unless you want to use a plan other than AT&T. Also, you can still use the T-Mobile 3G whatever plan, it just wont allow you to use the 3G.

      This is all confusing.... Will "YellowSn0w" work or not on the newest baseband?

      It looks like it will, or it may be a teaser of a 2.28 baseband unlock to come in the future.

      Will wait to hear more from dev team though

      Only if you want to access third part development (apps) or use your phone in another country and not have to pay for the roaming (slipping in a sim card from a local carrier)
