    , and
  • 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.

      I noticed musclenerd said the phone he was using was jailbroken and he mentioned Cydia ? Does this mean we can now jailbreak 3.0 as well and use all the apps we use now on 2.2.1 ??

      The jailbreak tools will be released shortly after FW3.0 is.
      Provided the apps are 3.0 compatible you can use them.

      For as smart as the dev team is... why in gods name do they always tell everyone how they did it? That blows my mind.

      People always ask and Apple are smart enough to work it out.

      I assume this is if you don't want to jailbreak though? If jailbreak and unlock is something you want you have to wait?

      i asked that on another thread. why are they the exact same build number?
      how do they differ?
      my firmware on my phone says 7A341
      the firmware being released sometime today is exact same, no?

      so i'll ask again, should i bin this and restore to the "official" one??

      i hope i'm not sounding stupid, but once i have the official release today won't i have 2 identical sets of firmware on my comp?

      how will pwnage know which one is which when i go to JB?
      OR, how will i know because i'll be choosing the firmware at the launch of the pwnage tool!
      can anyone see my point here?

      i know i can just place my old firmware somewhere else or just rename it, but why do i have to go through all the crap of restoring to the official one?

      Don't b impatient!
      Wait till the devs iron out ALL the kinks. There could b issues with sim cards like last time.
      This is the EXACT same unlock as yellowsn0w... just through a different hole. They took care of all the issues and kinks.

      Apple most likely opens for business at 9am PT which is 2 hours from now. In case there are any disasters it's always good to have people present in the office to jump on it!
