iPhone 3G Unlock En Route

Codenamed yellowsn0w, the Dev-Team said they are currently working on a way to package this hack in a user friendly, simple application for use by your average job.

Dev-Team announced the achievement in a blog update, sandwiched between possible fixes for the DFU problems that have been plaguing users after yesterday’s 10.5.6 system update and news about part of the team’s appearance at the upcoming Chaos Computer Club’s 25C3 Congress. There’s a couple of catches for the hack. Here it is, straight from the horse’s mouth:

« [the 3G unlock] is now completed and is currently being packaged into a user-friendly application with the simplicity that you see in QuickPwn or BootNeuter.

* The target release date for the unlock is New Year’s Eve 2008.

So, there you have it. Come New Year’s Eve we reckon they’re be plenty of people ringing in 2009 with an unlocked iPhone 3G.

Check out the Dev-Team Blog for more or less the same.

  • It's too bad there won't be more people thrwing their iphones into the toilet on new years eve. That is where they belong!

    Amazing that so many people want new iPhones, then wait for people to help them break them.
  • It's not "break them", it's "break into them". Once the protection is broken, we can put any applications we want onto the phone hardware we own. I can even write my own!!! To put them onto a normal iPhone, they have to be approved & blessed by apple, which is nice that they're offering to do that for us, but I disagree it needs to be mandatory. Unrestricted iPhones for us all, please!
