ultrasn0w Unlock Update – Carrier Logo Fix

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

##ICON_NAME## Today the Dev-Team released an update to the unltrasn0w unlock. The update to version 0.92 is basically a bug fix.

Today we released an ultrasn0w update that fixes an issue for those running firmware 3.1.2 with the 04.26 baseband. That specific combination resulted in a missing carrier name in the upper left-hand corner of your home screen. Today’s ultrasn0w update from 0.91 to 0.92 fixes that problem (which was an important issue for roaming). You should see the update available if you have http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com as a Cydia source. Enjoy!

Quite a few people have been asking GeoHot, the developer of the blackra1n jailbreak, if he is going to look into an unlock… his answer is always a resounding, “No.


However, GeoHot has recently decided to look into an unlock for the 05.11.07 baseband. It seems that Jody Sanders, better known as the guy that sells the Dev-Teams unlocks, has offered GeoHot $10,000 to release the unlock.


If GeoHot does find an exploit for the unlock, it will be released to the community for free however, Sanders will continue to sell support for the the unlock to his customers.


According to GeoHot it should only take him a day or so to find the exploit. He started the search at 10:00pm EST last night.


So far, he still hasn’t found an exploit and is running out of places to look. We will just have to wait and see if he is able to find one!


Dev-Team Releases Jailbreak – PwnageTool 3.1.4

##ICON_NAME## The Dev-Team has released a jailbreak for firmware 3.1.2. The jailbreak (PwnageTool 3.1.4) works for the iPhone 2G, 3G and 3GS. It also work on the 1G and 2G iPod touch. It does not support the 3G iPod touch at this time. PwnageTool only works on a Mac (no Windows version yet).

If you are an unlocker, “It is super important that people who need the unlock to understand they can keep it only by starting at 3.0 (or earlier) and updating solely to custom IPSWs that don’t update the baseband. For those who have been onboard the “unlock train”, simply install ultrasn0w via Cydia once you’ve restored to your custom IPSW. Don’t forget to turn off the “3G” setting in Settings->General->Network if you use T-Mobile in the U.S.A.”

Below is a snippet from the Dev-Team’s website. However, you will want to check out their blog for full information and the download.

Be sure to read everything carefully before you begin your jailbreak.
