The iPhone Dev-Team says tests on the 3G iPhone's retail hardware are great and everything works as anticipated.

They have been blogging their quest to purchase and test a new iPhone and are very happy with the results thus far. Perhaps an unlock is very near...

Dev-Team is Hardware Testing the 3G iPhone

Right, so three of our members are waiting to buy the lovely shiny Apple 3G iPhones. We need a couple of new out-of-the-box iPhones, for erm, some tests. Our guys are on the ground in various parts of the world, and we’ll be bringing you updates on their progress (in this post) hopefully with photos. Keep an eye out for them, but be warned, they’ll be in disguise as Apple geeks to blend in with the crowds.

UPDATE: bugout enters the store and says that the activation servers are fubar. They have given him a black 16GB as “ white is f***ing ugly”. He has been told to take it home and activate it. :-) course he will.

UPDATE: MuscleNerd and Pumpkin are suited and booted, they’ve left their houses and are on the way to the stores, we’ve heard it is 1 per customer, which is a shame because they each have a pocket full of cash for phones for our Eastern European colleagues.

UPDATE: We have a video of something you guys might be interested in, all will be revealed later.

UPDATE: MuscleNerd says there are 200 people ahead of him, and about 500 units in stock. He doesn’t want to get physical to get one, we told him to chill, he needs to act more like an Apple fanboy and they generally don’t have muscles.

UPDATE: Bugout is near the counter, he may be the first of the DevTeam to score. He is trying not to look any Apple genius in the eye, he thinks that will be like encountering Medussa, or something.

UPDATE: Bugout wins the race! He can start testing as soon as he removes his Emo disguise and puts away his skateboard.

UPDATE: MuscleNerd has revised the queue count to ~256. Please don’t be mad, he isn’t used to dealing with Base-10 numbers.

UPDATE: Bugout reports iTunes Fail, hmmm, do we really need it.


UPDATE: MuscleNerd is stood in line with a kid who had “3G” written on his face, Zf (who is usually idling) suggested that MuscleNerd write “GGGGGGGGGGGGG” on his Muscles.

UPDATE: Whistle while you work! la-la-la-la-la-la-la!

UPDATE: Daddy, am I black with white stripes or white with black stripes? 2008-07-11 12:28:17.000 iTunes[4906:10edf]: DFU file = (null)

UPDATE: So guys, the out of the box tests on retail hardware are great. Everything works as we anticipated. This is great news, seriously. No riddles or jokes or cryptic messages now, watch this space.

Hey someone posted this at MMi a while ago but haven't heard anything else about that yet.. Hey ModMyiFone.com! I think I found an exploit! I activated my 1st gen 2g iPhone with 2.0 without using iTunes. Thats right I bypassed activation on a 2.0 iPhone. I used a modified old trick. Ok if you have the new 2.0 firmware but you can' get it activated cause the activation itunes server is slow or down do this. Go to emergency call. Dial *#307# then click call Touch The Screen Then Backspace the *#307# Then redial and call *307# Again Touch The Screen Then Backspace the *#307# Then Dial 1 and call Then try clicking on add call and hold at the same time. Then try clicking on hold and contacts at the same time. Keep Repeating this till you see both of the add call and hold or both ot the hold and contact lit up. Then try double tapping the home button fast. Then turn the volume up and down. Then switch it to silent mode then back to normal. Then push the power button - DON'T HOLD IT Then Repeat That Process. Don't worry if your phone keeps going to the phone saying multi party call. and you click home and all my icons are missing. Just turn the phone off and turn it back on. BANG BYPASSED ACTIVATION Using *#307# (Twice Not Once) Then Dialing 1 (Then double clicking hold and add call) Then double click the home button. Also I think the 2.0 update fixed the iPhones screen issue. My iPhone screen would turn off or not turn on and only the backlight the white light would turn on. Now with 2.0 its fixed!
