iPhone 3G / 2.2.1 / 02.30.03 unlocked!!
Hi, a friend of mine bought a new iPhone 3G 16GB, gave it to me to unlock it, it got firmware 02.30.03 baseband 5.9 so i told him its a hopeless case, you need a turbo sim.. theres no way to downgrade/unlock or even run yellowsn0w on it...
he accepted that until another friend toke a look at it, toke his iphone.. brought back the next day fully unlocked and working with the same baseband version.. same modem firmware.. it wasnt even jailbroken!! theres was no cydia no installer.. i was totally shocked.. restarted the iphone.. toke the sim out and in.. tried another sim.. the iPhone was really working like it was officially unlocked from Apple.. and his friend didnt charge him.. he said its a gift.. when i asked this guy that unlocked it how did you do it.. he said "i dont know, i kept playing with it, restoring, dfu, restore, dfu.. and suddenly it showed service!!".. maybe he really didnt know, or maybe he just dont wanna tell.. he said he have more 3 iphones that didnt work for him and still locked..
im just wondering.. if every one knows theres no way to unlock iPhone 3G/2.2.1/2.30.03/5.9 how did this happen without even a jailbrake!!!
maybe someone can tell me what to look into this iPhone? see something changed inside it? some special software?! some numbers?! i dont know.. maybe this can help every one to understand how to unlock it!!!!
