    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.

    In short: As long as the iPhone 3G is firmware is 2.1 or less it will be unlockable? Thanks in advance for any info!

    if you are on 2.1 right now you are safe. if you are on the normal (non modified) 2.2 you have the updated baseband which is NOT currently reported to be supported with this new unlock release. i have heard some stories of people using ziphone to reflash the baseband back down again then being able to install a CUSTOM 2.2 firmware WITHOUT the baseband update. if anyone with a 3g can confirm this it will be much appreciated

    or has been pwned at 2.2 using the dev teams pwnage tool, this stops the baseband from being updated also.

    at the moment ive got all the goodness of 2.2 with a 2.0 baseband

    just to let you guys know, i bought an iphone on payg from the apple store the other day and it came with 2.1 firmware, but, it is only a matter of time before every brand new iphone is 2.2 otb.

    im gonna hold onto mine and sell it when people are looking for unlocked ones on ebay and they are a bit rarer, then use the money to buy a 32gb one after xmas

    whoah whoah whoah, hold up. ziphone works with 2.x firmware now? since when? have i missed a massive piece of iphone news here?

    SORRY to triplepost but ziphone worked upto 1.1.4, then zibri went on a rampage and eventually did not come through with anything for 2.x, therefore, there is no way for a 3g iphone to have its baseband flashed back to a 1.1.4 2g baseband, as 3g is 2.x only for now.

    i think youve got confused somewhere here?

    ziphone also enables imei changing i believe (although ive never used the programme) so this would be massive for me....

    Default Thats Right Is Coming Out Finaly
    Now that you guys have got used to the sunburn and blindness caused by the glare of our new blog template, we can get back to normal business. We’ll give you some updates and also tell you our schedule for the festive season.

    Over the Christmas break some of our members will be talking at the Chaos Computer Club’s 25C3 Congress. This talk will be a juicy technical talk relating to iPhone platform and our previous exploits. You can see more information about the talk “Hacking the iPhone”. There is even a super-cool TeamPwnapple T-Shirt ;-)

    3G Unlock

    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.
    You can tell what version baseband you have by going to Settings->General->About->Modem Firmware
    The unlock requires a jailbroken 3G iPhone. It’ll be installable via Cydia and so it doesn’t matter if you have a Mac or PC.
    Please refrain from updating your baseband, regardless of what version you’re at. We’ll have complete directions on New Year’s Eve.
    We’ll stream a live demo of the unlock before Christmas (see the update at the end of this post)
    DFU Issues in OS X 10.5.6

    Lots of users have been experiencing problems with the use of DFU mode after applying yesterday’s 10.5.6 system update.

    We believe this behavior is due to a kernel bug not a specific countermeasure by Apple. Possible fixes are (try at your own risk!) -


    1. Replace the following plugin kexts from within IOUSBFamily.kext with the ones from 10.5.5 and then rebuild kextcache (if you don’t understand this, then you shouldn’t attempt it!)

    /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBHub.kext

    /System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOUSBCompositeDriver.kext

    2. Use a USB hub in-between the DFU device and the Mac and insert/reinsert the iPhone’s USB cable.

    3. Use a PwnageTool created .ipsw on Windows! Oh the irony!

    iPod touch 2G

    Currently we are not investigating the iPod touch 2G. Other people outside the Dev-Team are looking into this, but we are not at the moment. Please don’t hassle us with comments and requests about this, they’ll just be deleted and ignored. If we do look at this device it will be sometime in the New Year and we’ll inform you guys if and when we commence this work.

    We would like to reiterate that this is not because -

    We are mean
    We are turning our back on the iPod touch community
    We have been paid off by JFK, Princess Diana or Elvis
    This is because -

    It’s not an iPhone
    We have been busy with the 3G unlock.
    We have been busy with the CCC talk.
    Only one of us has a iPod touch 2G (but we’ll see what Santa brings)
    Our employers don’t get as excited as us about hacking expensive pretty devices
    Unfortunately our partners, parents and pets need occasional attention too.
    Update: Live Demo

    Sometime before Christmas, MuscleNerd will show a live demo of the unlock (and some other random nucleus and pwnage stuff). It’ll be streamed live via the awesome Qik application, and announced via his Twitter account just as the broadcast begins.

    No other. T-Mobile and AT&T are the only GSM Network providers (sprint and the rest run on CDMA or whatever it's called). And out of the two that do GSM (what the iPhone is) only AT&T uses the range that the iPhone 3G modem picks up. T-Mobile uses a different one making it impossible for the phone to use it even when unlocked.

    So if you want 3G speeds on your iPhone in the US, you have just one option.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.
