The hard working guys over at the iPhone Dev team have finally did it - the software unlock for the iPhone 3G is ready and will be made public on New Year's Eve. And best of all, it will be free as usual. To prove they have the real Mccoy, a member of the Dev-Team has published a video of the actual unlocking.
The iPhone Dev-Team have been working on a software unlocking method for iPhone 3G since Day One and they are finally ready.
For the time being, the method, codenamed yellowsn0w, requires command line operation, but the Dev-Team promises a nice looking graphical interface for inexperienced users. The tool will be available for download on New Year's Eve. 3G or not 3G is no longer the question.
The Dev-Team are obviously planning on distributing the software via the unofficial third-party software repository Cydia, so you'll need to jailbreak the iPhone first to gain access to it in the first place.
Unfortunately the only iPhones to benefit from the unlock, are those with baseband ver. 2.11.07 or earlier.
Here's the proof that demonstrates the unlocking process with yellowsn0w. Enjoy!
when will the iphone 4 ios5 will be unlock.
Am I the only seeing nothing but a black screen and audio from that video?
I just wanted to say I tried using this software but I got no signal after doing it, so I re-did it a second time and still no signal. I restored my iPhone 3G to factory settings and then did yellowsn0w and it now works fine! Unlock iPhone
