iPhone 3G Unlocked!

This is done by the well-known DevTeam, AGAIN. See the official news on their blog here. and as said, ‘The target release date for the unlock is New Year’s Eve 2008.

So for those iPhone 3G ‘unoffcial’ owners, please keep an close eye on the DevTeam’s blog. And don forget to show your appreciation if possible.

iPhone 2.0 Unlocked by the Dev Team, Again

Here’s the proof(Bootneuter 2.0 from iphonedev on Vimeo):


The reason i say again is because they have done it before, for many times, actually, from the starting 1.0.0 to 1.1.4. I don know what you think, but i do think i should salute to them, again, not mention just after i read their latest post titled Rush,rush,rush on their blog.

btw, it’s for the old 1st-gen iphone, not the new 3G one.

Good Luck and Farewell, Dev Team!

The most respectful and well-known developer group in iphone hacking field, iphone dev team, has been eliminated! check out the official press release on their site here. here’s the quote:

iPhone DevTeam PRESS RELEASE

The “DevTeam” would like to announce the immediate withdrawal from the iPhone development arena.

It was anticipated that the DevTeam would be releasing a tool for the iPhone sometime this week, unfortunately it has been decided to withdraw all development activities on this tool.

Criticism of the validity of the tool has been reported in the press and certain actions were taken to prevent the release of the tool on the 30th March.

Due to these actions, certain developers ceased their work immediately, with others reconsidering their position.

On Monday the 31st of March the DevTeam was approached by an unnamed party to sell all of thei intellectual property and related applications.

After much consideration the offer was accepted and work has ceased.

The name of the company that has made this offer is private, and the details of the deal are confidential.

Our only comment is that Pwnage Tool and other such applications will not be seen outside of the lab.

We would like to thank our users for their support over the last 10 months.

ENDS

Really frustrated at this, ‘coz they are the one that owns my full respect and now they are gone. same goes to the long-awaited pwnage project. What do we expect from the iphone hacking field tomorrow, then?!

Anyway, they have done so much to us. and they should have a good ending. hopefully their hacking spirits will be kept and reserved in the following hacking guys. for now, let me say:

Good luck and Farewell, iPhone Dev Team.

Update(Apr.1,2008): So glad to learn that i’m just been fooled :-)

Huge iPhone Unlock Progress Achieved

First, BL 4.6 + BB 04.02.13_G is done by the young well-known iphone-unlocking genius George Hotz(a.k.a GeoHot). Here’s his announcement on his blog. What does this means? Well, it means anyone who plans to use iphone on any unofficial carrier network can go to get an iphone without any hesitation for now. For OTB or upgraded 1.1.2 or 1.1.3, try Ziphone . For others, use google.

Second, one of FF 1.1.3’s exploits founded by Dev Team. So what does this mean, again? It means 1.1.3 has been jailbroken. It means you can try the newly-added features in the latest firmware yourself. Without this, you will never ever get Ziphone.

Last but not least, BL 4.6 downgraded to BL 3.9. Done by GeoHot, Again. I know your question. And here’s my understandings. Tutorial here by aCujo.

Basically, it means you can make your 1.1.3 OTB iphone fully functional(hopefully) while staying at the up-to-date 04.03 BB.

Besides, if GeoHot continues his awesome job, a customized BL would be possible. That means, most likely, the hacking community will take a big step advance in the cat-and-mouse battle against Apple. For the iphone owners like me, we will benefit so much from that. Say no worry of no available unlock method at all when we do the upgrade in iTunes :-)
