  • iPhone 3g Unlock Update - Modified Baseband Running
    Over the past week the dev team has made some good progress towards 3g unlocking.



    The above screenshot and this video are of a 3g iPhone with a modified baseband. The news is that although the baseband fails integrity checks it is still running! So now the dev team can run a modified baseband on the 3g iPhone.

    While the dev team still can not estimate how far they are away from a 3g software unlock this is a step in the right direction.

    [via iphone-dev] thanks tony

      Just thought I would mention (I am NOT AT ALL saying this is fake or not true), but I think for the average person that pic/video means nothing.

      No it's not. at&v is just an AT command.

      Keep it up Dev-Team! You are doing a great job there.

      wouldn't it lower the value since the unlock program will be readily available?

      Also is there another iphone coming out? HSDPA???

      coool...I hope they can unlock it within this next month
      I travel abroad a lot and need it unlocked badly.

      Cant they copy the baseband off a factory unlocked iphone?
      I guess they would've done it, if it was that simple.

      Woo this is awesome! I'm currently using the TurboSIM to use T-Mobile on my iPhone, but who wouldn't love an actual hardware unlock more?

      That way no more crippled functions, like with the TurboSIM (which isn't a big deal since T-Mobile's 3G isn't working with the iPhone, )

      Awesome work Dev-Team!

      It's the GSM modem firmware. Just search for "iphone baseband" on Google if you want to learn more...

      LOL, now THAT should be how we refer to the 1G iPhone!

      A s/w unlock would be great, so that way I can make more $$$ off of my 3G when the real 3rd Gen comes out.
