While it's a significant progress, as stated on the blog, we're talking here about reverse engineering a very secure system with some parts acting as a black box (i.e. data in, data out, and we don't know what's it's doing in between). So we could hit show stoppers, as we could find unexpected shortcuts, nothing is sure, but we'll try to make you informed as soon as it gets more clear.

    We stopped working on Zero-G and similar network tricks, because we think it'll never be reliable enough to be worth considering.
    Thank you. You guys at Dev Team are way above and beyond the rest. Even GeoHot seems to be not really in on the loop, from his blog comments.

    You guys/gals are now running your own "beta" baseband on the iPhone 3G. This is a major step.

    This means that there are baseband versions that may have softer security/ exploits which they had not yet patched in the final. This may be the key.

    As for me, I cannot confirm or deny on Yessim yet because I haven't received the sample yet.

    Honestly, if iPhonix/Juma works on 2G, I'm considering it as a temporary solution. However, there are good points on network flaw hardware sim exploits which are inherently unstable.

    In your opinion, given there are no ETA on the unlock release date. Wouldn't the sim proxy tools be sufficient for a moment? Because without it, there no way we can use the iPhone 3G without signing contract with approve carrier.

    erm no. A tool that can bring you severe issues with your country law or your operator contract, is higly unstable and does not let you use the most important part of your phone (i.e. 3G data) isn't worth it, IMHO.

    First of all, I have tested a few *sim solution, even the most expensive steaxxxsim, (I learnt now expensive does not mean good, cheap one can work equally well or even better) none of them work all the time in all the 3G newtwork in Hong Kong. GExxx sim & isXm said they will have a new solution coming out on 8Aug.,2008. Let's wait & see.

    They might be broken stuff (for the time being), depends on your expectation. It will fit someone who want to use the iphone for a particultlar operator, not all the operators. For me , althougt I only use Hutchison network in my daily life, I want the *sim work in all networks in Hong KOng & China, because this is a better value for money .

    "Buy from a company can explain you why their method is working" is a good idea, but explaining why their method work does not meant that it will work. Their explaination may fail a real world test. Also, in a real business world, I belive no company will tell you exactly how their *sim work, just like Coca Cola will not tell their customers their real receipt that make Coca Cola test so good.


    Waiting the community unlock solution is good , but I would like my hand on an *sim iphone now, rather than waiting for no due date free solution, may be at that time, iPhone is not so hot already. I myself like hot products, even expensive, do not like an cheap antique.

    At this stage my opinion is that even as a temporary solution, it seems a bit too unstable still.

    I got my iPhone 3G White 16GB from the US late July. Remember, we're less than one month from the official release. New software, hardware, baseband, baseband hardware, etc.

    My interest is at this stage how Mac and iPhone, iPod, iTunes Store products can be spread wider and benefit people, and how I can make a reasonable income from it...

    My personal guess is that the Dev Team has got the iPhone 3G right in its targets now. We're talking jailbreak of 2.0.1+ software, Installer (which was a huge, massive, deal on the original jailbroken iPhones)... Unlock of the GSM/3G is progressing, I believe, given that they can run several different versions of the baseband firmware of their choosing... They also reported being able to backup the baseband when tinkering with it.

    My plans are to estimate that I have a nice upgrade from my iPod Touch now, and by the start of September I'll at least have basic 2G call/SMS function, using WiFi for data needs.

    Does anyone can tell whether unofficial jailbreaking an iPhone or software unlocking is legal or not, because in some countries, unofficial modifying Microsoft Windows operating system is illegal because modifying a sotware has something to do with the intellectual right which is protected by the law. Will this apply to modifying iPhone baseband as well?

    For the time being, a *sim temporary unlocking solution is still the best for us to use a 3G iphone at lower price. But this solution must work as well as an official unlocked iphone, otherwise , it will destroy the fun of using an iPhone.

    Just wait & see if one of these *sim temporary unlocking solutions will stand the test of time.
