3G Unlock VERY SOON - Works on ALL Basebands?
EDIT: Yup, 3G unlock works on 02.28.00 modem firmware (baseband). Check Update 3 on the dev team blog post!
2ND Edit: The Dev Team says the yellowsn0w Cydia package will be up as soon as the dev team member in charge of the repo fixes a file permission error. See update 3 on the dev team blog post
3rd Edit: If you do NOT have the 02.28.00 bootloader, and are going to want to unlock - do yourself a favor. Back up your stuff now, restore to a fresh 2.2 IN ITUNES, then use PwnageTool to make that a jailbroken 2.2 with 02.28.00 baseband (this guide). That way you won't have to when the unlock is released here shortly.
4th Edit: Its out.
Well, the dev team has posted another blog entry earlier today. The contents are purely this:
Could the dev team be letting us know to ignore that part now? That the yellowsn0w release, coming up today, will work on the newer baseband as well?
A few hundred thousand 02.28.00 baseband users who would like to unlock their 3G iPhones sure hope so.

this question has been asked over and over. and definitively no. it can't be used on tmobile 3g in the US. tmo's 3G is a unique specturum from the ROW's 3g.If i say something stupid I apologize. If i say something smart: "RESPECT MY AUTHORITAH".
And if i help you, please hit the Thanks!

Wow, fantastic job guys, I was researching to find the meaning of the cryptic message and just ended up back here! Never would've figured it out myself.

Guys Important Update from the Dev Team....
Dev-Team Blog - 2008?
Update: The scamming douchebag is at it again. We DO NOT have a twitter account called ‘yellownsn0w’, and similarly no .net domain name related to yellowsn0w, don’t add this to your bookmarks. We would like you guys (currently 29 of you) to stop following him on twitter, and to also block him if he is following you. We need to see that 29 number decrease! do it people! He is a spammer! :-(

If you watched the presentation at 25C3 the dev team gave they explicitly said that the method they used couldn't be stopped by apple at this point in time. And that it would work on all current and likey all future firmwares. When they first said that the first thing that came to my mind was that post they previously made about their unlock not working on the 2.2 firmware baseband. I'm surprised nobody in the audience asked them about it at the end.
If the translation of the binary is correct, "IGNORE 61060174" then it all makes sense.

I believe he was referring to the possibility of 2.2 with the latest baseband.

You can still used EDGE with T Mobile.
And yes, the people asking questions (mostly those not asking questions) were pretty lame. Four people from the Dev Team on stage for a Q&A and no decent questions to ask them, for shame. Wish I could have gone.I write Mac only tutorials for the iPhone and own every model. My iPhones run on the following SIMs/networks: AT&T, GoPhone, H2O, O2, SimpleMobile, T-Mobile and Verizon.

I am lucky and have been smart about this since day 1 literally. I was like the 2nd person to get one the day they came out in my town. I'm still rocking 02.08.01 firmware. I really hope it unlocks all basebands, I have friends that work with me at T-mobile that want to use their 02.22.00 baseband iPhone at work on T-mobile's network like I will be doing tomorow at work (hopefully) haha.
