    What, for the 3G iPhone? Because it's already been done with the first-gen. Couldn't you search? It's coming out on New Year's. It's on their website, for crying out loud.

    Yes, for 3G, I know there is one, but not for the newest baseband.

    Maybe I didn't ask it to clear enough:

    Firmware 2.2 is:

    1. The 2.2 as it is, all the soft update etc.
    2. The baseband, which handles the communication with you network provider

    They managed to unlock baseband 2.11.07 (or earlier). They warn people about "normal upgrading" the firmware and I was aware of that. But my question was:

    Are there any rumors about working with unclock for 2.11.07 or above ?

    if you had read any of the comments on their blog it is stated multiple times that they will start looking for exploits/holes in the 2.2 baseband in the near future. and once they find a hole they can inject their code and it will be as unlockable as the rest of the basebands.

    And if you had read anything from Google, you'd know that you can update to 2.2 without updating the baseband using PwnageTool and it will be unlockable on 2.2.

    Remember they are unlocking the 3G through software. 2G and the 1G were already unlocked but the 3G wasn't.
    Yellowsn0w will unlock the 3G version.

    I know, I was aware of that, I don't need to unlock right now, it might be useful for me in the future. All I wanted is the newest baseband update :).

    I admit, missed the part on their blog, where they are saying about working on new hole in the NEWEST baseband. Will wait and see, how it goes.

    yellowsnOw so close yet so quiet?

    Its 31st. Do we have an ETA as to when it will be released? just curious as I've been checking this forum every 10 mins to see a mention of it.

    According to the blog it will be released about 20 hrs from now. I may be wrong. Rather hope I'm wrong and its released earlier.

    I'm hoping someone posts a new thread at least once per hour asking when it will be released.

    This app will get released when it's ready. Do you want them to release a buggy installer for an app that can brick your phone? Plus, if you want the latest information about this, go to their blog. Why would you think someone here has some super secret, insider information?

    ^ yellowsn0w is the dev team's soft unlock for the iPhone 3G, it is being released today on NYE, though there is some contention as to when it will actually be made available hence the amount of chatter on the subject.

    On a side note I just opened Cydia and it stated that there was an essential upgrade, I wonder if it has anything to do with the yellowsn0w release?

    Just checked and can't see a package for yellowsn0w yet.

    No, it's an upgrade to the Cydia Installer.

    As you say it'll be ready when it's ready, being in the UK I was hoping to get it some time today but am expecting it some time tomorrow, I just couldn't help getting excited when I saw the Cydia upgrade...nevermind.

    It's very nice of you to do this since not everyone has access to Cydia to check on their own or access to MacForums to check this thread. :confused:
