iPhone Dev-Team Expects 3G Unlock Before New Years

iPhone Dev-Team Expects 3G Unlock Before New Years

Posted December 15, 2008 at 1:10am by iClarified
The iPhone Dev-Team is working hard on the iPhone 3G unlock and expects to have it released a couple days after Christmas.

According to team member MuscleNerd the "Target date is a few days after Christmas :)"

At first the unlock will be released for the iPhone's with the 01.45.00 baseband. If time permits the Dev-Team will try to complete an unlock for the 02.11.07 baseband as well.

Right now for 02.11.07 we have some untested ideas. Ideally we'd have something solid by the end of next week, but if we don't then it would be a staged release, with 01.45.00 first out of the gate.

Here is a list of the iPhone firmware versions and their matching basebands...
- 2.0.0 Firmware & 01.45.00 Baseband
- 2.0.1 Firmware & 01.48.02 Baseband
- 2.0.2 Firmware & 02.08.01 Baseband
- 2.1.0 Firmware & 02.11.07 Baseband
- 2.2.0 Firmware & 02.28.00 Baseband

Those of you lucky enough to still be on 2.0.0 or the 01.45.00 baseband will be able to unlock first. If you are at 2.1 or used PwnageTool to update to 2.2 then you will have the 2.11.07 baseband. This will be the second baseband to receive an unlock.

Those on the 02.28.00 baseband will likely have to wait a while before an unlock is released so make sure you use a tutorial on our site to jailbreak and update rather then using iTunes directly.

I've heard on IRC that they already have a solution but have agreed not to release it until after Christmas (due to those that use the unlocks in a commercial manner -- to sell iPhones, etc.) Missing the biggest sales time of the year is a big problem for resellers but the end user (which DEV-TEAM caters to) doesn't matter.
