Dev Team Demo UltraSn0w: Software Method to Unlock iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0


The iPhone Dev Team demoed their new software method to unlock iPhone OS 3.0 yesterday.

They are calling their latest method to unlock iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0 UltraSn0w. iPhone Dev team will be releasing UltraSn0w on Friday.

MuscleNerd who gave the demo of the new software method to unlock iPhone OS 3.0 provided the following details:

  • Apple has apparently closed the injection vector that iPhone dev team had used in YellowSn0w. YellowSn0w was the first software method to unlock iPhone 3G.
  • The latest version of their software unlock solution is called UltraSn0w.
  • They have managed the latest method to unlock iPhone 3G running OS 3.0 thanks to a new hole that was found by some clever guy named Orinav.
  • The Dev team claim that UltraSn0w will unlock any iPhone 3G running iPhone OS 3.0 regardless of baseband, bootloader etc. This is great news as yellowsn0w worked with only baseband 02.28.00 which came bundled with iPhone OS 2.2.
  • Dev Team will be releasing UltraSn0w on Friday.
  • They plan to release the latest version of QuickPwn and PwnageTool as soon Apple releases iPhone OS 3.0 which was just released. We will let you know as soon as it is available.
  • Dev Team will confirm if UltraSnOw will work with iPhone 3G S as soon as they can get their hands on the new iPhone.
