If you're a jailbreaker with a 3GS or just updated to the latest firmware 3.1.2 to fix those comas and other problems, you'll be pleased to know that the Dev Team has released Pwnage Tool 3.1.4 on Tuesday which will allow jailbreaking of 3.1.2 and the 3GS.
Just a few days after the Dev-Team released the 3.0 jailbreak and the ultraSn0w carrier unlock for the iPhone 3G, they have published a blog post saying that the same unlocks for the 3GS are laughably easy.
The iPhone Dev-Team has finally unlocked the iPhone 3G with the 0.9 beta release of “yellowsn0w”. Though it still has a number of noted issues, the unlock will work with the latest modem firmware (02.28.00). This means that users with an updated iPhone 3G (version 2.2) will be able to unlock their iPhone without have to do too much work.
A new website has surfaced, preaching the great gospel of unlocking and jailbreaking. iPhone Infused alleges that there is a way to legally avoid 2 year contracts, outrageous fees, and access thousands of free applications and ringtones! The site promises that for $40, you too can jailbreak and unlock the heck out of your iPhone.
Now, just consider the absurdity of the website’s claim.
There’s a video up at Infused’s website that is supposedly “proof” their “simple solution” will work. The Dev Team member, who maintains that the site is a hoax, says the video is just a re-edited, reversed version of one he recorded.
The site looks a little hoaky itself, despite it's incredibly trendy design. Word to the wise, if the iPhone Dev Team thinks you should steer clear, they're probably on to something.
The iPhone Dev Team has decided to forgo weekend fun and release the iPhone Pwnage Tool 2.0 today. The release is just in time to ruin any Saturday night plans you had, and keep you glued to the warm glow of your newly jailbroken, and unlocked, iPhone.
Pwnage Tool 2.0 will jailbreak any OG iPhone, and iPhone 3G, that is currently running iPhone Software 2.0. The tool will only unlock the OG iPhone for now. The iPhone Dev Team is currently working on a version of the Pwnage Tool that will unlock the iPhone 3G.
As with any new unlocking/jailbreaking tool, you might want to wait until the tool has been tested by brave super nerds before taking the plunge yourself.
For the brave, be patient, the Dev Teams servers are being hammered right now.
So those awesomely unstoppable bags of wacky known as the iPhone Dev Team, who roam through the countryside jailbreaking iPhone and iPod touch firmware, are getting set to release the first PwnageTool for jailbreaking the iPhone 2.0 firmware update that was only unleashed, oh, five days ago.
But the team announced on its blog today that the PwnageTool won't be able to unlock the iPhone 3G to run on other wireless carriers. If you have an iPhone 3G, the tool will jailbreak the handset to run unsupported apps while still maintaining App Store support.
And the team is still working on a "baseband unlock" of the iPhone 3G, as well, so I guess someone should start a pool to see how quickly they get that accomplished. (Those cats are wicked smart, yo.) Read more about it on their bloggy blog.
It only took five days and the iPhone Dev team has already managed to jailbreak the new iPhone 3G, though there is no official release annoucement. Anyone with the OG iPhone, iPod touch, or iPhone 3G will be able to partake in the pwnage. Third party apps will still be accessible, as well as other cool hacks like video game emulators, video recording capabilities, and maybe someone, somewhere will figure out how to create a hack for cut and paste. Seriously.
