iPhone 2.2.1 Firmware Update Breaks Unlock

MuscleNerd has confirmed that the iPhone 2.2.1 firmware update breaks the yellowsn0w unlock.

In his Twitter feed MuscleNerd shared the following information:

for *jailbreak* purposes 2.2.1 is fine for all including ipt2g. But it BREAKS the yellowsn0w soft *unlock* for iPhone 3G

it's not surprising that they fixed injection hole for yellowsn0w, it is surprising to see a "silent" update

the iPhone 2G baseband is untouched .. I *think* they've stopped all development of it :) last update for it was 8 months ago

It is quite likely that Apple released this update just to close the unlock hole used by the iPhone Dev-Team. We will keep you up to date with any further information released. Please DO NOT update.

Either use an official provider or buy a PiggyBag SIM - which might give you some functionality.

If you don't know, it probably doesn't apply to you. Which carrier do you use your iPhone on. This is only if you want to use your phone on a different carrier to the one it's locked too.
