  • 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.

      No. Quickpwn is coming as soon as the Dev team have it ready 'Quickpwn Admin' is nothing to do with the Dev Team and is just guessing.

      Update from teh Dev Team
      Update 2 (Thursday morning):

      * We have two issues that we’ve been trying to resolve:

      1. There are new 3.0 complications with YouTube.app if you’re on a hacktivated (unofficially activated) device
      2. There’s a bug in Apple’s new version of asr that our custom IPSW’s are tickling and causing crashes on, on some devices.

      * We have a workaround for #2. For #1, we’ll try our best to get it fixed but we may end up releasing a preliminary jailbreak in which YouTube doesn’t work for hacktivated devices, and then follow that up with a more complete jailbreak when we can.

      Well it was either wait or have a non complete jailbreak that could potentially crash and burn your iphone, im willing to wait the extra couple days. Who knows maybe it gets released tomorrow, but i say more realistically considering musclenerds last tweet sometime Monday is my guesse.

      EDIT: maybe an overnight release of ultrasn0w, devteam twitter states f5 keys at the ready, perhaps something is about to appear on their page?

      I am prety sure the developpers are aware that "the community" is eagerly awaiting their great work. So pushing them won't really help I am afraid.
      I myself, I just press my F5 button every half an hour or so, hoping to be lucky.
      Good luck guys, we really appreciate your hard work!

      Their fixing the bug where the phone gets confused (from the demo video) My guesse is they work on it through the weekend and release during the week, likely MOnday.

      Well according to Musclnerds twitter the past couple of days, due to the issues that came of with youtube with jailbreak, tweaking of ultrasn0w had to be delayed and is being worked on through the weekend. They are working on getting rid of the confusion your iphone goes through when entering a tmobile sim. Id expect for a release at the earliest tomorrow.

      EDIT: just went through twitter to make sure im correct on what is going on, they are now past the confusion and are working on this according to planetbeing: Remember how ys didn't work smoothly until 0.9.6? We're trying to cut down the number of AT commands it takes so it's more stable.

      For a stable ultrasn0w, im willing to wait.

      They said Friday so that Apple couldn't make any last minute changes to 3.0. You really think they just meant any random Friday somewhere in the future lol? Give me a break.

      Yup, some random Friday.
      If you think you can do better then do it yourself.

      okk guys whatever you beleive,we can't really know so just wait for it

      Jailbreakers: I know a lot of you here are waiting on a QuickPwn 3.0 download for the iPhone OS 3.0 firmware, but unfortunately Dev Team has decided to retire the QuickPwn program. QuickPwn.com is working on making it and plans to have the QuickPwn 3.0 jailbreak released by Friday this week (possibly earlier, but we don’t want to get your hopes up). If you’re using iTunes 8.2, the current QuickPwn will not work on it but we are working on fixing this in QuickPwn 3.0. If anyone has experience creating jailbreaking/unlocking software and would like to help with the QuickPwn 3.0 jailbreak please e-mail webmaster[@]quickpwn.com.

      iPhone unlockers: The Dev Team is working very hard on getting the ultrasn0w iPhone 3G unlock out to us. They’re making good progress! According to MuscleNerd, ultrasn0w will also support Pin-locked sims. Pin-locked sims are the sim cards that require you to enter a code before using them (usually corporate phones are forced to use these sims). The Dev Team has no ETA for the ultrasn0w unlock but they’re working hard to bring it to us.
      so nobody knows when it will be reaease!
      just a question devs won;t realease a new quickpwn for 3.0?
