    Update to 3.0 tomorrow, unlock with Yellowsn0w. You will get more money.

    Upgrade to 3.0 when it is available. Apparently yellowsnow can unlock the 3.0 modem firmware but not the latest one for 2.2.1 (there is a demo of them doing it tonight).

    1 PwnageTool's site has links to 2.2 firmware.

    2. Upgrade to 2.2

    3. Download 2.2.1

    4. Run PwnageTool to get a custom ipsw that will upgrade you to 2.2.1 but keep modem firmware of 2.28.

    5. Install yellowsn0w.

    6. You're good to go.

    7. PwnageTool's site has lost of good info.

    No offence, but don't follow this advice. Tomorrow, when 3.0 is released, update your iPhone to 3.0, and Jailbreak and unlock it. It's all released tomorrow hopefully.

    I'd agree with this advice. You haven't got long to wait now.
