iPhone OS 4.0 Beta Unlock : BlackSn0w Ported by msft.guy
[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlewvG56t3I]YouTube - Blacksn0w ported to 4.0 in action on a 3GS 4.0 beta 4[/ame]
It's impressive the amount of work that is being done with iPhone OS 4.0 Beta inside the Jailbreaking community. Not only do we have jailbreak tools for iPhone OS 4.0 Beta, but now we have the ability to unlock 4.0 on the iPhone 3GS. While these tools and the beta are not practical at this moment, it's great news for developers that are stuck with the beta and need to be unlocked.
Msft.guy has released a video demonstrating the unlock and how he has managed to port Blacksn0w to be compatible with the new beta operating system. He also provide instructions on how to do this yourself. The video itself is only a proof of concept, and here's why. There are still some bugs involved so it will be a pain in the *** to stay unlocked. Each time you reboot your device, you will need to re-apply the patched files.
A word of caution as usual; if you are not a developer, you shouldn't be playing with iPhone OS 4.0. IF you have a good reason to be using this, you will need to be on baseband 05.11.07 in order for this to work. If you don't know what your doing, stay away from this.
We strongly suggest you stay away from playing with any unlocking tools until the iPhone Dev-Team released their unlock for 3.1.3, which isn't far away, as the new 4.0 should be available shortly after WWDC.

Patch WHAT? There's nothing new here. It's just the old exploit for 5.11.07 ported to 4.0 FW.

Bah I need a 05.12 unlock, this is the same unlock we've had.
I don't like this, as this may slow the release of a new unlock for people stuck on 05.12, enough with the 05.11.07.
Anyways thanks to the dev, but efforts should be directed at newer basebands as it will help more people than this baseband.
I can imagine there are thousands if not more, iphone locked with 3.1.3 and 05.12 who will not benefit from this, so if they upgrade to 4.0 it will be the same.

This is so motherfreaking nice!!

hmm, wonder if dev-team has a 4.0 baseband unlock too...
I thought it was odd they were waiting for 4.0 to come out officially before releasing the unlock for 3.1.3 baseband, unless the same exploit is present in the beta 4.0 OS.

I dont understand how this only unlocks the bb 5.11.01 but if your upgrade to 4.0 your automatically on 5.13.01
Unlock 3G 3.1.3, 5.12.01 
Get a red backplate for my 3g

If you restore the phone with a official IPSW, then it will update the BB. --Something I did the day the first beta came out, but I have the AT&T, so it isn't a problem... But I put beta 4 on without updating my baseband any Further
A jailbreaked beta 4 isn't ready for every day use, it is really just for developers. Which I am not. So I am back at 3.1.2 with redsnow, then the firmware faker thing to make it report as 3.1.3, which didn't add anything anyway. I had 3.1.3 installed before with spirit, but I like verbose mode

UKFitch21 and nycdiplomat
thats not necessary true
My iPhone got into recovery mode and I had to restore
I have an MC model so I couldn't use custom firmware (it would have cause an infinite loop so i was told) and not update the modem...
My only chance to even use the phone was simply to update to 3.1.3
