  • 3G unlock - New years eve!


    From: http://blog.iphone-dev.org/

    We have been working hard on a few other things. The main one being the 3G unlock codenamed “yellowsn0w”. This is now completed and is currently being packaged into a user-friendly application with the simplicity that you see in QuickPwn or BootNeuter.

    * The target release date for the unlock is New Year’s Eve 2008.
    * This unlock method is available to iPhone 3Gs that have 2.11.07 baseband or earlier, we did warn you.
    * The unlock requires a jailbroken 3G iPhone

    For those of you that have updated through iTunes to Firmware 2.2 and have the 2.28 baseband you will not be able to use this initial release to unlock your phone. There is no way to downgrade your baseband at this time.

      Hi Dev Team,

      I was wondering if you can help this 'green' person. I'm definately not tech savvy.
      Firtly, what's the difference between 'Jailbreak' and 'Unlock'?

      I was told to jailbreak my phone, I downloaded the necessary files but my phone isn't recognised in the latest (8.0) iTunes. I'm not sure if this is a recurring problem.

      Thanks in advance.

      WOW thanks Dev Team. Will we be able to use it on Jan 1st on any carrier? Another question would be do we have to do it with Apple Computer or we can do it via PC too?

      This is very exciting. I have been counting down the days!

      FYI: You won't need a computer to unlock your phone to work on any GSM carrier. You need to have your phone jailbroken with Cydia on it. The unlock will be available on Cydia and it will just install directly from your phones internet.

      01100101
      01110010
      00100000
      00110110

      00110110
      00110000
      00110001
      00110111
      00110100
      00100000

      Which translates into vtaber 61060174

      Hmm...I thought if you jailbroke a 3G with the current files http://www.modmyi.com/forums/iphone-...ailbroken.html, it would reset the baseband so it couldn't be unlocked (any time soon anyway)?

      Question? I have a 3g iphone with the latest Baseband 2.28. Now the update is coming via cydia how can i unlock the phone if it's not jailbroken? Will there be a program we can download from online that can process this?

      so far it looks like it will only be through cydia, so you'll need a jailbroken iphone

      At least for the inital release, you have to jailbreak your phone (which will put Cyida on your phone), then through a repository, the Dev Team will release the unlocking tool for download and then you can unlock your 3G through the program you just downloaded. If you are worried about jailbreaking, dont be; jailbreaking is really easy. Just use QuickPwn and follow the instructions and tutorials carefully. And if you need any help, this is what we are here for at MMi...

      Happy New Year to all.

      Does the 3G Unlock is now officially released by the Development Team?
      I live in Asia with a +8 Hours GMT and a bit confused which time zone should I check on
      to know if the 3G software unlock via Cydia is now avilable.


      Cheers for the New Year,
