Dev Team Publish Video to Demonstrate Ability to Run BackGround Tasks; Even Closer to Unlocking iPhone 3G

iPhone firmware 2.0 hacked

The iPhone Dev Team has published a video to demonstrate that they are now able to run background tasks on iPhone 3G.

When the dev team had cracked iPhone 3G’s baseband couple of weeks back we had mentioned that they were closer to unlocking iPhone 3G.

With this ability to spawn background tasks, they are now even closer to release the much-awaited software method to unlock iPhone 3G as they can see a clear path to follow.

The iPhone Dev Team commented:

"This ability we now have to spawn background tasks means we are one step closer to the 3G soft unlock.  We have a clear path to follow, and “all” that remains is the implementation."

The video demo titled "Nucleus Persistent Tasks" can we seen below:

The iPhone Dev Team has given the following explanation:

"That “One more thing!” text is being generated by the backgrounded
“steve” task at 5-second intervals.  The “A0” is the task’s priority."

You can find below the summary of the milestones that the dev team has achieved in their quest to unlock iPhone 3G:

I guess now its just a matter of time for the iPhone Dev Team to release the much-awaited software method to unlock iPhone 3G. So stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks to get the latest on the iPhone 3G unlocking news.

Please remember that the iPhone Dev Team has also warned iPhone 3G users who are looking forward to unlock their iPhone 3Gs to avoid upgrading
to upcoming iPhone firmware 2.2 when it is available until they don’t
give an all clear.
