yellowsn0w for 3.0 on the way!

Author: Pico  //  Category: Development, Jailbreak, News

Update: The Dev-Team has just updated their blog in conjunction to MuscleNerd’s Ultrasn0w Demo (that’s what they are calling the 3.0 unlock)

* Only ultrasn0w is going to take til Friday to get pushed out. All of our other tools should be out pretty soon after the official Apple release.
* If you apply our jailbreak when it comes out, you can install ultrasn0w anytime after that. You obviously won’t have cell service in the meantime, though.
* This may in fact be directly applicable to the iPhone 3GS if it can be jailbroken, because it runs the same baseband version. Whether or not it can be jailbroken is a big question right now!

Watch MuscleNerd’s Ultrasn0w Demo


The Dev-Team Blog has just confirmed that they are in the finalizing stages of testing Pwnage Tool and Quickpwn that will work with iTunes 8.2.

In more anticipating news, they also announced that on Tuesday evening (just before 3.0 goes live), they will perform a live demo of the yellowsn0w carrier unlock working on official 3.0 firmware.

This is great news for all, as the image they provide shows the final 3.0 modem firmware (04.26.08) – basically sayings that all iPhone 3G’s are unlockable – even ones that have 5.9 Bootloader and 02.30.00+ modem firmware.

I would still recommend waiting on upgrading to 3.0 until the Dev-Team releases all information regarding the jailbreak and unlock.

Thank you Dev-Team!

    I am currently using 2.2.1 with BL 5.09, locked. waiting for available downgrade of BB to 2.28.00. Is this an alternative? Would I be able to upgrade firmware to 3.0 with BL 5.09 and use the new Yellowsn0w?
    Thanks Alon :)

    I just wanted to let everyone know that the iPhone 3GS has shipped. I ordered one on June 9th and now have the tracking number.

    Hey,,, just wait and see… for the up coming 3g unlock from the DEV-TEAM… i’m pretty sure yellowsn0w will rock again in the iphone world..

  4. Johnny Appleseed Says:

    Yes, that is what they are implying. I don’t know what BL the phone has in the screenshot, but you can clearly see the BB of 4.26.08.

  6. tazzky Says:

  7. lungulescul Says:

    Dude, this is about how to free your iphone not about how you can steal apps. Wrong place for that.

    wow… so happy for this thing… before i’m using my iphone 3g with rebel simcard,,, it works great though,, but after few months the rebel sim gone bad.. it doesnt work anymore because i always remove and insert simcard to change carrier.. my iphone is 2.2.1 and 2.30.03 firmware and 6.02 boot loader… i hope the 3.0 FW will be 100% unlockable :D tnx… more power dev!

    will all of it have to be re-written for 3.0 like they had to do when we went from 1.0->2.0 ???

  24. Alon Says:

    Hi BigBoss,
    question: I have purchsed the Gevey 3G and waiting for its arrival. I would like to know if you have any information regarding the functionality of the chip with the 3.0 operation system? My question is just to know since I hope the Ultra
    Snow will solve our all problems …

  29. Dev-Team Supporter Says:

    I think Apple should thanks officially to Dev-Team and people behind Jailbreak team … because of them, iPhone boost their sales on the market …

    No jailbreak! no unlock! I never think to have iPhone as my choice …
