    From twitter @geohot- tomorrow, i add hacktivation support :-)

    so wait until tomorrow and use purplera1n/sn0w
    Or you can use redsn0w now to hactivate, although no guarantee that purplesn0w will work. so use ultrasn0w for now if it does fail...

    I went ahead and did a full DFU restore and then rejailbroke with Purplera1n Rc2a (which i used in the first place when i was using ultrasn0w I just didn't want any issues) and installed Purplesn0w which is working perfectly.

    Just letting you guys know how i did it. I didn't just uninstall ultrasn0w and turn around and install Purplesn0w. Do it the right way first and you most likely wont have any problems. Yes it takes a little longer to do a DFU restore first but it works the first time and who knows you might be saving time by avoiding a problem down the road.

    Some may say the same about you! Don't like PR or PS, then don't use it. We all have the right to remain silent.... how about you give it a try.

    While I somewhat agree with this post about supporting both,it seems that theres a slight competition brewing with Geo's release of his jailbreak ahead of the devteam(along with the comment tha came with it about "thats not how the game is played")..And in most competitions,people cheer for one of the teams,rarely both.

    And while I do thank Geo for finding the initial exploit on the first iPhone,we are now on the 3rd generation and other people just as smart and savvy are sure to come about..To those that say the dev team sucks,and Geo is the man,think about it this way from an automotive perspective..Karl Benz is known as the person who made the first (gas powered)automobile,does that mean that the Benz name is the end all be all and that nobody else would come along and up the ante?

    And those that say the dev team rocks and Geo sucks,well if it wasnt for him,the first iphone wouldnt have been broken (hey wait,I dont see how this pertains to the here and now but)

    Guess the point im trying to make is,if they are trying to 1 up each other,its kinda hard to support both.

    This unlock is broken on any phone with 3G enabled, regardless of provider. Disabling 3G through SBsettings immedietly fixes the problem, and you get signal + wifi right away. Enabling it again kills them both and causes the phone to run very slowly.

    Hopefully he will come out with a fix for this

    Sorry guys, but GeoHot's Jailbreak is much more superior then Dev Team. Now his unlock will be even better as well.

    GeoHot is the one who finds all the exploits as well, please don't bash him.

    Google hired him for a reason

Screw geohot, devteam is better. The not accepting donations thing is the prime example too!
    Be Nice!

    So if I unlocked with redsn0w (2G 3.0) just for the heck of it does that mean that my battery is being drained more quickly?

    I realize that this mod is for 3GS only, but the part about running an extra program for unlock got my attention.

    thanx

    Its important not to lose sight of the cause. We need to support both. We also need to donate to keep them going. I dropped a "feety" on geo for purplera1n. What ever software you use, please donate if it works for you ;-)
    Thanx

    I'm happy with my AT&T service so no need for the unlock, but I'm glad to see people are making these attempts. Hopefully one day Apple and other handset manufacturers will realize the futility of "locking" a mobile to any carrier and just let everyone choose what they want and who they want.

    Thanks to Geo and the Dev team for all their hard work, and their competition. Choice is a good thing.

    The only competition is the one that the people have made here on the forums. Geo has always worked well with the dev team. Dont you follow twitter, lol? Geo hands almost every piece of information he finds over to the Dev team so they can build a tool, and the Dev Team also support geo and give him advice and exploits they find. Where do you think the exploit used in yellowsn0w came from?? All in all, they really do work together and the only real competition is here on the forums. Geohot is all about making things as easy as possible, which is why he has been lately trying to make tools that allows jailbreaking and unlocking to go a lot smoother and quicker.

    There will be an update to purplesn0w tonight that will fix some bugs as well. As it was stated before, the first version of sn0w is a beta, use at your own risk!!

    Just tried this unlock, works perfect. All I did was uninstall ultra, reboot the phone then install purple and reboot again. Phone found T-Mobile service almost instantly and everything works perfect!
