blacksn0w coming soon! Will unlock 05.11.07!
geohot has come through once again for the iPhone community. Earlier this morning he posted a video of blacksn0w:
blacksn0w will unlock both the 3GS and 3G iPhones running 05.11.07 to use on any gsm carrier. blacksn0w will be bundled into a new blackra1n that will be available on November 4th. So if you accidentally updated or restored to 3.1.2 and lost your unlock, you are in luck!
And of course you can find detailed instructions here on MMi on how to do it when the new blackra1n and blacksn0w are released!

He kinda looks like the guy tht plays Dexter brother in that show Dexter.
10-31-2009, 10:15 AM #9
So, if I buy a 3gs with 3.1.2 already updated will i be able to unlock it? or does the 3gs have to be on 3.1 unlocked already?
10-31-2009, 10:15 AM #10
wooohoooo nice work geo. the dev team seems to be slacking quite a bit lately
10-31-2009, 10:17 AM #11
Hallelujah! I'm so happy to hear this, I could cry! Geohot's genius never ceases to amaze me. I'm definitely throwing a donation towards his way if this works!

One question though... Since I don't even know which carrier I have (I bought it from a guy that bought it in Japan). So is there a way to find out which carrier you're on?
I am asking because I hope god blacksn0w isn't like purplesn0w. Meaning I need to legally activate it to be able to use the blacksn0w. >.<.

He hasn't officially said it will have hacktivation support but there was talk of it last night so I hope he figures out how to add it to blackra1n.

So there is no way to find out which carrier you're on? Sorry for the question...
10-31-2009, 10:29 AM #18
you guys should donate 50 cents if that is all you can give. this guy is coming through HUGE. I'm definitely sending a couple bucks over his way. I can finally get my 3gs off ebay now and unlock it without paying a lot. Can't wait.
10-31-2009, 10:49 AM #19
Great News!!!! I was waiting for him to release the unlock before I upgraded to 3.1 .. Thanks a lot
