  • 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.

      better to be safe than sorry, but you guys are telling people everything will be fine when you have no clue!
      Accoding to the Dev Team it is exactly the same but using a different inection - which means it *shouldn't* have any problems.
      I will try it as soon as possible after release but if you want to hang fire then it's not a problem.

      You will NOT have an unlocked 3GS on Friday!

      UltraSn0w will probably work with 3GS but there is no jailbreak for it yet.

      You need to jailbreak to download UltraSn0w from cydia.

      The jailbreak and unlock for iPhone 2g should be out very soon (today). They 3G unlock (ultrasnow) is scheduled for Friday. You need to jailbreak to download ultrashow via Cydia.

      Hope that clears up any confusion...

      C'mon jb and unlock for 2g!! That's what I'm waiting for! Although I dread redownloading all my jb apps and reorganizing everything on my phone, wife's phone, itouch 1st gen and then of course itouch 2nd gen....ugh...gonna be a long night

      I usually wait until the fire settles and goes down on these kind of things, especially after what we had going on with yellowsn0w, which regardless of anything, I'm just happy the Dev-Team helped us 3G users out.

      I'm too anxious to use 3.0, so, I think I can wait a few more days, even if on Friday it's not completely ironed out. So, 3.0, here I come!

      I haven't watched the unlock video, but if ultrasnow is a unlock for the new 3.0 baseband updating will be required to do an unlock. So even if right now you need to mod the phone prior, I see no reason why it couldn't be unlocked post install in the future.

      I saw a post on the live chat but QuickPWN Admin and he said due to issues with 8.2 that it wouldn't be released until Friday 3PM GMT (-4). And repeated it a couple times since people kept asking.

      Quickpwn admin? You're having a laugh aren't you?

      It's certainly nothing to do with the official quiickpwn - where did you find that idiot?

      So Quickpwn is also coming on friday?
      Well, I've waited 2 weeks to reinstall 3.0 I can wait 2 more days.
      Actually, as everything works nicely atm I might wait a little longer but I know a few people waiting for me to unlock and upgrade thier phones.
