    Default [Research] iPhone 3G after unlocked will relock to ATT automatically...

    Look at some details that Blogger Dexter said... on Geohot website,

    I wanted to raise Dev Teams antennas up so as to research / understand how to work around the relock issue on the 3G iPhone.

    Well, after some research on new iPhone 3G, i can tell you "something" useful/unuseful things:

    - "ICE2" modem 01.43.00
    - Bootloader 5.9 w/RAM loader
    - support FOTA, but i dont know its enabled by default (i think yes, so anytime we unlock our devices, network can relock for us
    - A lot of AT commands
    - A self-diagnostic program
    - MIDI support
    - Sound controller still attached
    - FM Radio support (cool)
    - a strange MCC+MNC implementation... Dont know exactly what is this
    - A looong list of operator names

    Well GeoHot, u have a looong, hard job

    Someone gave him the CarrierOS build for the 3G iPhone, the latest one, and I guess he used strings on it, because he did not really find anything that is groundbreaking or that geohot didn't already know. Those are not the final bootloader/baseband versions, so he kind of just mentioned that for no reason also. As for the carrier list, that is for roaming, it doesn't mean that the iPhone 3G now has exclusive deals with "Texas Wireless" and "Unicel"

    plus, all nokias (atleast the n-series ones) and SEs have "FOTA". Samsung too. But you have to go to menu and manually download the SW. After nokia bricked a few phones and ALL of Sprints "fusics"(or whatever the hell those things were called) were bricked by forceful FOTA a few years back, I'm pretty sure the Open Mobile Alliance agreed that owners consent was required to install updates. Plus, I doubt there's a company out there with the balls to try forceful updates again. Although.... If ever there was a company arrogant and cocky enough to try it, it would be Apple.

    This will surely only effect people who use native PTT sim cards without the IPhone Contract. Other operators can allready tell we are using the iphone and can bar us via our IMEI , they don't.

    ummm.. this sound too bad, bcoz apple will force carriers to send "updates" to our iPhones.. and we have a looong cat+mouse game.

    I think we should work on disable FOTA, even if this wont be dangerous, its recommendable to disable it (for peaceful reasons)

    Maybe that's the case if you are using ATT, O2 in uk, etc. But I would like to see apple "forcing" T-mobile USA to update a device over the air that they don't even carry... tmobile updates blackberry phones automatically, but I'm sure that BB's updates are no hundred and something megs to be made over edge.

    just like anything else, they'll find a way to disable it. Really not ground breaking, just another move in the cat and mouse.

    Yeh this is true. I bumped into a Vodafone mobile internet promoting tent today in Paddington station (London, one of the busy stations), and basically they were demonstrating mobile internet. They had a wide selection of phones. SO i made a snide comment about, how Vodafone are losing out coz they lost the iPhone contract to Apple. The guy said, give me an iphone 1 and i will unlock it for you to use in 30 seconds; lol.
