So does this tool actually unlock a 3.1 or 3.1.2 iPhone 3Gs that has never been JB or Unlocked!!

It seems to say that, but I would love to hear if anyone on the forum has done this and how simple it was.

I am sat in the UAE with shiny white iPhoen 3Gs desperate to take out my O2 sim.....

Cheers Pitsy

If your iPhone (3G or 3GS) has the stock 3.1 or 3.1.2 firmware from Apple, then you can't software unlock because the baseband has been updated through the stock firmware. You can only jailbreak.

PS: "this tool" (PwnageTool) only jailbreaks. It is ultrasn0w that does the unlocking.

PwnageTool jailbreaks your iPhone. It does not unlock. I have never unlocked my iPhone because I'm fine with my AT&T account/service....

iPhone Hacks will provide help for you to unlock your phone. You must JB before you unlock.....so you should proceed with PwnageTool 3.1.4 to restore your iPhone to the latest firmware....v3.1.2.

i don't quite understand the dev-teams spiel about DFU mode..

If you’re already jailbroken (by whatever means), you don’t need to mess around with DFU mode at all. Just create (or get from a friend) your custom IPSW and Option-Restore (Shift-Restore on Windows) to it via iTunes. Don’t enter DFU mode at all.
I have an iPhone 3G which is currently running 3.0 JB'b with redsn0w and unlocked via ultrasn0w.

If i want to update to 3.1.2 i don't re-jailbreak?
I thought i'd have to use pwnagetool to create the custom ipsw from the official 3.1.2 ipsw?

:confused:

that just means if you want to upgrade to 3.1.2 then you must ensure you use a custom made ipsw from pwnagetool

You still have to create a custom ipsw but you on't have to go through the whole hold the power button for 5 seconds, power and home, just home blah blah blah anymore as it works from normal... hence no need for DFU mode...

so what you're saying is, they've made the entire process a lot easier?

I'm sure the GUI will reflect this as before it told you to hold down power for 10 seconds blah blah... but i'm assuming now it won't do that...

So essentially, just follow the instructions in the GUI right?

Might have to try this then :)
