So with the release of the new firmware for the iPhone getting VERY VERY close one question on anyone who unlocks and or jailbreaks there phones are wondering the same thing. Well I am going to attempt to answer some questions.
First off for those of us unfortunate enough to be stuck with a 2.2.1 iPhone using a turbosim to unlock or just not using the phone because of the damn baseband update we are going to be in luck. A week or so ago I was reading the iPhone Dev Teams blog and they stated the following about yellowsn0w [the program used to unlock iphones with out using a turbosim. Don’t forget to save this iPhone back glass repair contact in case you need an affordable solution to the damage on your device.
YellowSn0w on 2.2.1 and beyond
We see many questions about whether yellowsn0w can ever be made to work on firmware versions past 2.2 (or equivalently, basebands past 02.28). This is probably a good place to address those questions:
If there is a yellowsn0w update for firmware after 2.2 (or basebands after 02.28), there is no way it would ever be released before 3.0 is official. It just wouldn’t make any sense to release an exploit for something that only those who have beta 3.0’s (NDA signers) could use. Most people in the world aren’t NDA signers. Any yellowsn0w update for 3.0 would need to happen *after* 3.0 is officially available
Now I dont know if maybe I was just being optimistic but I figured they had gotten it to unlock on the 3.0 firmware just because of the way it was worded. Well I was correct. As of writing this and just a mere 4 hours ago the dev team posted this to there blog.
On Tuesday evening (just before the big Apple release) we’ll do a live demo of the yellowsn0w carrier unlock working on official 3.0 firmware. The actual link for the feed will be twittered by @MuscleNerd (see our twitter feeds to the right) and also placed here when the feed starts. The demo should answer everything you need to know about the new yellowsn0w. But it’s good news for iPhone 3G unlockers everywhere.
What does that mean? Well first it means I can drop this damn tubrosim and go software to unlock. Dont get me wrong the turbosim works great most of the time it just takes a while for it to kick in and do its job and having to type in “internet2.voicestream.com” every time I loose a signal is not a fun task. So that is great news for me and anyone else out there using it.
Lets move on shal we? The 3.0 firmware is going to be able to be jailbroken [did you have any doubt] and it will work with the new iTunes 8.2 that was released. So if things go as I think they are going to go by the end of the week I will be on the new itunes rocking 3.0 firmware on my iPhone with yellowsn0w unlocking it to use on t-mobile.
Lets summarize this up…
iPhone 3.0 firmware CAN be jailbroken
iPhone 3.0 firmware CAN be unlocked [pending the release of the new yellowsn0w]
Quickpwn/pwnagetool WILL work with iTunes 8.2

Apple … that wonderful company that brought us such fun stuff such as iPods, OSX and the iPhone. In this article I am going to talk about the iPhone – all of its previous generations, and the one that may be on its way into a apple store near you following the upcoming Apple WWDC!

This video will show you how you can get paid apps for free on your iPhone or iPod touch. Keep in mind that stealing programs is wrong. The developers work hard to make these apps and are only trying to make a little money while you do it. That is why we do not suggest you try doing this yourself. If you dont take this warning and do try it make sure any apps you do try for free you delete and go buy legaly from the appstore so that you can support the developers and they will keep creating new apps for you to play with.

Ok so I bought a turbosim off of ebay for $8.20 [link] and it got here today. Speedy shipping so that made me happy. Once I got it within 2min of sitting at my desk I was recording a video and testing the card out. Now I have had it working for a few hours and all seems to be well so far so I am calling it a success.
If you want to unlock your iPhone I suggest grabbing one of the sim cards at that ebay link above and trying it out. If you have success be sure to let us know 🙂
BE SURE TO READ THE INSTRUCTIONS WHEN YOU GO TO INSTALL IT FAILURE TO DO SO MAY CAUSE YOUR PHONE NOT TO WORK AND YOU WILL HAVE TO TRY AGAIN!

Ok so here is one for you…using your iPhone to watch live streams and stream through ustream.tv. Streaming requires you to jailbreak but the viewing app can be downloaded from the app store for free! Check it out 😉
[p.s. I know I did 3 iPhone videos in a row but it was a slow day and I recorded them all and didnt want to wait to post them.]
