  • 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.

      It's amazing how one person can discover a "hole" in 3.0...against an entire corporation filled with software engineers who have been working on this for over 6 months...

      What are the chances of Apple "patching" the hole in the next 2 days?

      3.0 is coming out today (thanks). Don't try to update now, ultrasn0w will not be released until Friday. If you try to update now you will lose unlock capabilities.

      why? is it better to restore a jailbroken phone to the factory settings before doing an official update?

      Do you think that apple will find a way for ultrasnow to not work? I hope the delay in release is due to just apple being slow.

      It is not necessary to restore your phone for an official updates. The dev teams pwng tools take care of that for you. You will be just fine!

      So you don't lose 500mb of disk space of course.

      Why do you want to wait until Friday to jailbreak it? Why not use the jailbreak tools being released today?


      They didn't release it when I thought - last time it was 12 their time I believe which is just over 1 hours time. Should be soon anyway and pwnage not long after.

      But O2 have said 6pm UK time apparently - that's 3 mins away!

      i know it worked for alot of people but don't mislead these young wipper snappers.

      yellowsn0w was a nightmare for most of us for almost 4 updates!

      and no blue settings when i use the mobile page on my phone.
      i have to physically change it later.
