It has been a long time since I last wrote about how unlock the iPhone. In the meantime, the Dev Team has worked frantically in order to unlock the new iPhone 3G and after rumors, announcements, delays and fuss the most famous team in the world has finally release its incredible Yellowsnow tool which unlocks your iPhone 3G with baseband 02.28.00 in a matter of minutes, thanks to an user-friendly interface and a quite simple procedure! Here is the procedure and two very interesting videos.
In order to use the Yellowsnow tool you need to update your iPhone to software version 2.2 using iTune. Right after that you have to use QuickPwn to activate and jailbreak the iPhone 3G. QuickPwn 2.2 is able to jailbreak iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G and iPod Touch.
Locked iPhone 3G – Preserve Baseband
Usefull if you have a locked iPhone 3G and you wish to update to 2.2 but preserve the iPhone’s current baseband software. Preserving the baseband will give you the maximum chance for any upcoming software unlock. To upgrade your phone to 2.2 and preserve the state of the baseband you need to create a custom .ipsw with PwnageTool. This custom .ipsw will not contain the baseband update but of course will still allow all the cool new stuff from 2.2.
Locked iPhone 3G
If you are using your iPhone with one carrier and have no interest in the possibility of an iPhone 3G unlock in the near future then just restore or upgrade to 2.2 using iTunes and use QuickPwn to Jailbreak and add Cydia and Installer.
iPhone 2G (1st Generation)
Update or Restore your iPhone 2G with iTunes then run QuickPwn to do the magic, ‘nuff said, you don’t need to worry about anything.
iPod Touch 1G (Original iPod Touch)
Update to 2.2 with iTunes and run QuickPwn.
