So, there are many people wanting to unlock the iphone 3g/3gs base-band from the 5.12.01 to the 04.26.08 because they "accidentally" upgraded to 3.1.3 so....
i am here looking to see if it can be done via the "hardware method"...that is the Vietnamese way....(google it)
i know it is because some due in vietnam is probably getting rich doing it...
as far as i know...
I need the 04.26.08 EEPROM
I need a EEPROM programmer
i need EXPERT SOLDERING skills
i got the skills, and about 150 people on a list to unlock...and what if i don't wanna wait until the iPhone Dev Team to releases their unlock method...
i am assuming that i can generate the 04.26.08 EEPROM with the EEPROM programmer assuming i get a baseband with the 04.26.08 installed...
so...do you what i'm saying?? YES YOU DO...
1) Where can i get the right EEPROM programmer?
2) iDont wanna wait, do you wanna wait?
Moderator...move to iphone hardware section..please...thanks...

Sounds like a complete PITA, and opens you up to some liability issues.
If I'm understanding you correctly, you are talking about removing a baseband eeprom chip, plugging it into an eeprom programmer and overwriting the 5.12.01 baseband with an older one?
Good luck! Personally, I'd wait for a software unlocks and waiting on older software than cracking the phone open, voiding the warranty and risk screwing up the phone.

Geohotz is the only one that I know of to do a hardware unlock on an iphone and it is EXTREMELY hard and he is a genius (literally) with this stuff.
Go ahead and give it up....if you could do it, not trying to sound harsh...but people would be doing instead of going without.
