Dev Team Update their yellowsn0w App to Unlock iPhone 3G: Fixes Even More Problems

The iPhone dev team have released an updated version of their software solution to unlock iPhone 3G.

They have fixed some of the problems which iPhone 3G users had reported with the latest version of their unlocking application yellowsn0w v0.9.6.

You can upgrade to the latest version via Cydia. You can follow our step-by-step guide to unlock your iPhone 3G.

They have also updated their application as seen in the screenshot below to clearly indicated that its free software (a good move) to ensure that some folks like Jody are not duping people into paying for their free software.

The Dev team have also revealed their future plans related to unlocking iPhone:

  • One major feature we have left to provide support for is PIN locking.  We have dabbled in this a bit and think we have a solution, but want to make that a separate effort from making yellowsn0w work with as many SIMs as possible.
  • At that point, we can probably declare yellowsn0w out of “beta” status.
  • The “permanent” unlock is still the ultimate goal for some of us.  We’d like to break the chain of trust a bit earlier in the boot process (if only for the fun in trying).

I just tried it out and this is the first time it worked without any workarounds so if you had problems previously in unlocking iPhone 3G, you can try it again with the latest version of yellowsn0w.

Let us know if you were able to successfully unlocked your iPhone 3G with yellowsn0w 0.9.6. If you are still facing problems and used the tips mentioned in our step-by-step guide then please report the issue to the Dev team using this link.
