    Will there ever be a downgrade baseband hack or some type of software hack like yellowsnow for the 2.30.03 baseband any time soon?? Here is a quote for the Deve-Team blog:

    THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT THE UNOFFICIAL QUICKPWN RELEASES IS THAT IF YOU USE THEM, YOU WILL KILL YELLOWSN0W, POSSIBLY FOREVER. That’s because QuickPwn, by its very nature, requires you to already have accepted Apple’s official IPSW, along with its baseband update. If you do that, you will (possibly forever) lose your ability to software-unlock your iPhone 3G.


    Sounds like they have given up the new baseband...???? Iam using rebelsim with the 2.30.03 baseband (T-Mobile) and I cant keep taking my sim card out every week to reset the sim keys. Too much wear and tare on the internal board...At least thats what I feel like lol... Any body hear anything about annother hack??

    Im sure when 3.0 comes out they'll find a way to unlock it for both 2G and 3G.
    Yellowsnow might be upgraded or they might come out with a whole different hack.

    There is a hack and unlock for the new 2.2.1 3G baseband. The problem is if the iPhone Dev Team releases the hack, they will have to burn the exploit in this baseband and Apple will release a new update for the iPhone in a 2.2.2 update with new baseband. Once again, releasing hacks/unlocks consecutively turns into a game and tires out and only accomplishes nothing but the burning of useful future hacks.

    So, to prevent this, the Dev Team has vowed to only release new baseband hacks for yell0wsnow when the software update is worth it feature wise; not just a bug squashing release.

    Hopes this explains everything.

    How should we know? :confused:

    The Dev Team said it may be impossible to unlock 02.30.03. Who knows? Not even the Dev Team does.

    I'm guessing that they're not really going to try unlock it though, I think they're working on a 3.0 unlock.

    Wrong. Firmware is downgradable, Baseband is not.

    Thats correct.
    You cant downgrade the baseband once you upgraded it.
