  • YellowSn0w 3.0 Video Demo. Enter UltraSn0w!


    Quick facts:
    • Apple closed the injection vector that YellowSn0w used.
    • Solution? New version enters called UltraSn0w.
    • Will unlock ANY iPhone 3g on 3.0 firmware regardless of baseband, bootloader, etc.
    • Same payload as YellowSn0w, injected into new hole in the baseband.
    • This new hole was found by an iPhone user named Orinav (no idea if i spelled that right) outside of the dev team.
    • Not releasing until iPhone 3.0 goes live so Apple doesn't have time to patch the hole.
    • Dev Team planning on releasing UltraSn0w on Friday. Could they be trying to unlock the iPhone 3G S before release too?

    (skip 2 minutes in to hear it start)

    MuscleNerd, from the iPhone Dev Team, has just released a video demo of the new iPhone software unlock - yellosn0w has now become ultrasn0w. It will not be released til Friday, on the iPhone Dev Team's site. Of course we'll have tutorials and links up for you as soon as it happens, same as always, so keep checking back.

    The best news? It unlocks ANY modem firmware (no more fiddling around with downgrading baseband and wondering if you're allowed to upgrade, etc) - as long as you're running the 3.0 firmware on your iPhone 3G, you can unlock. This WON'T work on the 3GS, until they've got that hardware - they'll be working on that right away, of course, its what they do.

    3.0 will officially be available from iTunes as of tomorrow for your iPhone 3G, 1G, and both versions of the iPod Touch. MuscleNerd DID say that the iPod Touch 2G 3.0 jailbreak "will be out soon after Apple pushes 3.0 official," but just the 3.0 unlock won't be available til Friday while they iron out a few last kinks.

    Oh, and its fine to install 3.0 as soon as its available if you don't mind being locked a few days (just until Friday, when ultrasn0w comes out).

    It's fine to install 3.0 now if you don't need to unlock til Friday. When you jailbreak make sure it's from our links tho to avoid hassles.

      From what I can remember, we can't really rely on the launch dates the Dev Team claim to seed their software.... Actually, when was the last time they actually released on time???

      Serously, where would we all be without the dev team....I say.. they are Gods among men.. However anyone know the up n up on the 3.0 jailbreak? I'm assuming a new release of Pwnage tool or QuickPwn will be on its way.

      I will probably wait until Sat. morning. One more day won't hurt and I've spent far too many nights working on phones....
      UltraSn0w? I wonder what they'll call the next one!

      Guys, i would search for the thread from back in january where yellowsn0w first came out. 3 days of absolute hell!!!
      Don't b impatient!
      Wait till the devs iron out ALL the kinks. There could b issues with sim cards like last time.

      YellowSn0w worked for me from the start - I'm to impatient to wait
      (BTW - no blue?)

      Nope, UltraSn0w is for BB 4.26 only, apps should be updated to work with 3.0, more are each day.
