    Default msft.guy Updates Blacksn0w Port : iOS 4 GM Compatible


    Last week we discussed a Blacksn0w port created by msft.guy that was compatible with iPhone OS 4 Beta 4 that allowed users to unlock their devices, and today we pick up news that msft.guy has updated his patch to be compatible with iOS 4 GM.

    As per usual you will need at least baseband 05.11.07, and the patches will need to be applied after any rebooting just like the previous patch. If your not on iOS 4 already, you'll need to ensure you install a custom firmware when upgrading in order to preserve the baseband, keeping it compatible with these patches.

    Once again, we do NOT recommend trying this out if you are not familiar with this process. Be safe, and be patient. It's almost time for official unlocks.

    Why are us iPhone 3G users being left in the dust. We are left with no solution to upgrade to iOS 4.0 without upgrading our baseband. Everyone is making custom bundles for the 3GS for Pwnage Tool. What about us 3G users that want to give 4.0 a try without the baseband upgrade

    I agree, and I am patient, but good things have already come to 3GS users, so why not us 3G users???

    wait who says this is 3gs only?

    from what i see, can't we 3g users jailbreak with the newest redsn0w and then unlock with this blacksn0w port?

    no

    You need to preserve your baseband, and that can only be done with a custom firmware.
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!

    Perhaps there isn't a 3G to test on

    I've got my iPhone 3GS unlocked on 4.0 with Blacksn0w that loads itself on boot, no need to keep typing in the command each time you boot up your phone.

    Well if that is the case I am pretty trusting and would be happy to test a 3G bundle. But I am not at the point where I can create one myself.

    Wasn't the dev team not going to release the 3.1.3 unlock because they said the same exploit was in the new 4.0 baseband. Maybe I read wrong but I believe that the dev team has the power to unlock 3.1.3 and possibly 4.0 but I guess they're waiting till 4.0 rolls out. Well I guess we'll have to wait until after June 21st!

    This would definitely solve my "how am I going to sell my 3GS when I get the new phone" problem.
