iPhone 2.0 Firmware Jailbroken and Unlocked



For those of you still interested in untethering your iPhone from its designated carrier, Gizmodo reports that the iPhone Dev Team has already managed to both jailbreak and unlock the latest iPhone 2.0 release.

The team plans on releasing their Pwnage tool so that everyone can unlock and jailbreak their iPhones.

Well that was fast... I wouldnt jailbreak it just yet, give it some time to see how it works out for those who do.
A lot of people still have to get around activating an at&t plan first to use it in another carrier though.

I'm impressed at the speed with which they've jailbroken it, but without a lot of beta testers (documented attempts), it's possibly worth some wait to see how things shape up.

Did this cover the 3G iPhone or just the 2.0 Software? I think it is only 2.0 on Gen1 Phones.

EDIT: Quote from Zibri:

"The device failsafe utility
(or Device firmware upgrade as someone says),
better known as DFU
it's a failsafe basic (and quite trivial) bootloader
present on the iPhone.
This is the weak point of the iPhone 2G and
hopefully 3G.
This post maybe means nothing to you,
but before anyone will say I copied/robbed anything
just remember you read it here first.
I will not release anything tomorrow.
And I strongly suggest
not to upgrade itunes nor the iPhone."

To me it looks like 3G iPhone has a chance of fixing the above weakness.

Well they have had the beta firmware to work with for months. Probably just had to confirm the hack worked for the final release version too. Still impressive timing, though.

Yeah! Lets all cheer the criminals who have no regard for Apple's intellectual property or the work put in by their staff. Hooray for flauting the law because you don't agree with it! I think speed limits are stupid too, i think i'll go drive 100 on the free way, look at me, i'm a hero! Whoo!

Dont read his blog. That guy is an idiot and the cause of many iPhone brickings.

Tell me how you really feel.... wowsers. Hostility?

We do appreciate BIG TIME the hard work people put into a product, we are not undermining that in anyway.

Regardless, way to go Dev Team, very fast indeed!
Cheers

It's not against the law to unlock a phone. At least in my country.
