  • Iphone Dev Team Still Trying To Unlock 3G


    Well posted on their blog is some bad news. Their new pwnage tool about to be released will activate and jailbreak the new 3G but it won't unlock. You guys are going to have to wait a little for that.

    On a more positive note if you have a first gen iphone with the 2.0 software, it will be able to unlock that.

    Apparently the latest build of firmware on the 3G is giving them some trouble and they want to wait until they perfect it.

      O.K., is it just me, or is the dev team blog not working? I've been on my mac with safari, xp with internet explorer, and iphone, but they all say they can not contact the server....
      Is anyone experiencing this or is the dev team about to release something....

      Read this:
      iPhone Device Software 2.0.1 on the way? : Boy Genius Report

      Correct me if I am wrong, but this version, so far, is not available on the Apple servers.
      I know for sure that what was rolled out on July 11th with the 3G launch, was 2.0 5A347.

      You may or you may not have to wait.
      Most developers, that will remain using Installer.app rather than publishing through iTunes AppStore, have had the tools for several months to develop and update their apps for 2.0. They may already have them ready because they did not necessarily require a Pwned device to test them.

      Besides, a Jailbroken 2.0 has many other advantages (albeit it requires more expertise) than just installing unofficial apps.

      You can have custom ringtones on your iPhone 3G without the jailbreak. I already have custom ringtones.

      Would it be possible for Windows users to use a VMware Image with OSX Leopard to install the pwnage tool and jailbreak our 3g iphones?

      I am excited bout the unlock for the themes and sounds and stuff.. But mainly I can not wait to be able to disable that stupid auto correction tool while im texting!!!!! I hate it so much, it makes me mess up all the time while texting because I like to use slang or abbreviate when i text... I am so excited for this I can't wait... I used to have Iatkos 10.5 on my dell laptop and i might put it back on just so I can jailbreak my 1st gen 2.0 ipohne!

      Great!

      I'm thinking about unlocking it on my brother's Mac, since win-version probably is gonna take a while...

      I wonder what Geohot's doing right now...

      The Dev Team are doing a great job but looks like somebody beat them to it.

      But still, I too would rather wait for the Dev Team than pay for an unlock.

      Ok seriously dude why would you just not post the information on the forum that way people will know and not have to pm you... Kinda sounds like you are wanting some attention here... Anyway whatever doesn't matter I guess at least you are trying to help... But here are some websites that will explain everything that you need to know... And it is really not very hard at all...

      i would like to pledge $10 dollars to the Dev Team. I believe that we owe these people alot and would help our cause to support them. I just wanted to be on record as saying it and hope others will do the same.

      True. In America it just sucks that AT&T has a 5 year deal with Apple. I've had T-Mobile and never have a reception issue, my friends on AT&T are always frustrated. More bars in more places, yeah right!

      3. I didnt want to post to another forum in a main mmi news thread I thought it might be a little disrespectful to the owners of this forum.

      I don't expect anything in return or recognition. Lol I just want an unlocked 2.0 like alot of other users here stuck on windows and this install makes a good way to pass the time til release. This is alot to type on a phone LOL but anyway good luck to all dual booters!!
      yea i unserstand... just thought id throw the links out there just in case.

      I think its great what the dev team has done for the iPhone community. And I don't mind waiting for any kind of release from them because there is a reason why there is a wait. To make sure their method is safe. I have nothing but respect for them. Thanks!
