Dev Team Jailbreak Beta version of iPhone Firmware 3.0

Would you believe it?

The iPhone Dev Team have done it again, they have already jailbroken the beta version of iPhone firmware 3.0 which Apple started distributing today after their special event to preview iPhone firmware 3.0.

But the iPhone Dev team didn't need much time to hack Apple's next generation OS. They write:

With all of the great stuff lined up for us with the 3.0 OS that Apple described today, many 3G owners may find themselves with itchy update fingers.  If you find yourself with access to the 3G IPSW for 3.0 via the iPhone Dev Center program, and you are using yellowsn0w, do not update or restore to that official IPSW.  You will lose yellowsn0w and find yourself unable to revert the baseband to get it back.

And for those wondering, yes the 3.0 OS is jailbreakable on all devices.   It’s just those using 3G yellowsn0w that have to show some restraint and wait for PwnageTool to create a custom IPSW that avoids the baseband update.

The iPhone Dev team continue to amaze us. But it's still early days; since iPhone firmware 3.0 is expected to be released to users only in summer, Apple still has time to figure out a way to prevent iPhone firmware 3.0 from being hacked.

We will keep you posted on this developing story so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks.

Thanks Egypt for the tip!
