Yesterday, Apple released the iOS4 to all the iPhone users but DevTeam surprisingly released a jailbreak for this major update within hours of its release. Even an unlock has been released for both the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS now that’s compatible with the latest baseband that ships alongwith the update.
iPhone DevTeamâ€™s 3G and 3GS software unlock, now with added PwnApple. Compatible with basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01 and 05.13.04! Thanks to @sherif_hashim and @Oranav for contributing baseband crashes.
The weird part however is the missing jailbreak for iPhone 3GS.
In what appears to be a gaffe even bigger than Apple’s Wi-Fi mess, DevTeam accidentally released the unlock for iPhone 3GS before the jailbreak, which means you can see it but you can’t touch it… So just in case you were wondering how to jailbreak the damn thing in order to apply that unlock thing, you’re not the only one!
UPDATE: DevTeam just released PwnageTool that is compatible with iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G (non MC models only) and iPhone 3GS with older bootrom.
