looks like dev-team did it again!
Dev-Team Blog - Big week!
looks like they got 3.0 unlocked and will be doing a preview sometime tonight
"As anyone reading this blog must already know, this is the big week where Apple releases their official 3.0 FW to the public (Wednesday), and then the new iPhone2,1 hardware, aka the iPhone 3GS (Friday).
On Tuesday evening (just before the big Apple release) weíll do a live demo of the yellowsn0w carrier unlock working on official 3.0 firmware. The actual link for the feed will be twittered by @MuscleNerd and also placed here when the feed starts. The demo should answer everything you need to know about the new yellowsn0w. But itís good news for iPhone 3G unlockers everywhere.
Meanwhile, weíre in the middle of testing our PwnageTool and QuickPwn tools, which will work with iTunes 8.2. The jailbreak of course continues to work on 3.0 for all devices it ever worked on, thanks due the Pwnage 2.0 technique released last summer. Our tools will be released no sooner than the Apple release (just in case!).
P.S. For the new iPhone 3GS, please donít expect periodic updates about any progress we have or donít have. Nothing gives Apple the upper hand like someone tweeting or blogging partial hack results. Thatís not how cat & mouse is played :) Thatís how the cat gets fed."
not that the unlock matters to me, but i know its big news to a lot of anxious fans (especially the impatient ones with bricked phones from itchy upgrade fingers)
This is increbible news! The Dev Team delivers again! It's amazing that they do all this for free.
They do it for free because that brings them joy. That's their passion and they are awesome. Thank you guys for all your hard work! :D
Triple OWNED :pie::pie::pie: hurray.
This is amazing news :)
the dev team are great!
Long live the Dev team, damn im happy
1st post, I just wanted to know some basics that you guys might be able to help with.
I have the iPhone 3G with 02.30.03 baseband and as you may already know you can't jailbreak or unlock it with 2.2.1 firmware. I plan on upgrading to the 3.0 software coming out tonight (midnight) but will the baseband change or will it matter for me to jailbreak or unlock the iphone.
you can Jailbreak 2.2.1 but you can't unlock it.

Slightly off topic ;-)
Where did you buy the unlocked 3G from in Dubai? Emirates Mall?
I came here from South Africa in January, got it there.
