    Default 3G iPhone real hardware unlock available on 7/24/08 in Vietnam...
    iPhone 3G ‘ã ‘ược unlock th*nh công Ÿ Vi‡t Nam - DI„N Đ€N TINH TẾ

    He opened up the iPhone 3G to remove or replace some chips to set/bypass the value of locked back to no lock. Tested on all vietnam networks. Work more stable than sim-unlock.

    In the pictures, they compared their hardware unlock method and sim-lock method...

    Atleast the 3G unlock is not impossible anymore...

    No, he was commentting on the sim hack, because he said that sim hack is very unstable and loose signal all the time, but his method is actually replaced a chip or bypassed it and make it permanently unlocked. He also said that the iPhone 3g word more stable, and work with 3G enable too. I didnt really understand the word they used.. so im not sure either he replaced a chip or bypass it. In a picture you see him soldered 2 wires on the board to hack it..

    I don't think he is soldering, I think those are tweezers on the chip that he removed.

    Haha, why is it that every time a new baseband comes out Vietnam is the first one to say they've hacked it. But has anyone seen the evidence? No.

    well, because they are not really connected with the outside world.. many worldwide websites are blocked by Vietnam government so the people in vn cant browse them.. And they are all sh'e't heads... lol
