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.
