  • 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.

      I guess now would be the time for me to get a white 3G since I'm on TMobile... but the only thing is finding one that hasnt been upgraded to 2.2... I know itll be a matter of time before the new baseband is cracked, just like how it was with the older 1.1.1 1.1.2 1.1.3 1.1.4 days LOL. Speaking of which, anyone heard anything from that "Z" guy LOL

      i'm with t-mobile. are there any advantages to having a 3g? i thought the radio frequencies the two companies use are different. If this is the case, one would only be able to get edge download speeds, right?

      Are there any other advantages to having a 3g model? Better, faster hardware like processor?

      Is firmware 2.2 directly related to baseband '2.11.07'? In other words, when looking to buy an iPhone 3G, can I simply make sure they never upgraded to firmware 2.2?

      The differences between the 2G and 3G: GPS, louder speaker, flush headphone slot, and of course 3G speeds.

      You can't use T-Mobile's 3G so if you want one make sure its for the other stuff since you'll be stuck in Edge.
