Done and done. As promised, the Dev-Team has delivered yet again and released the first version of its iPhone 3G soft-unlock to the world. It’s not without a few hiccups but it definitely works and it works well. What’s more, yellowsn0w works with the current baseband which means you won’t have to worry about downgrading or any other such nonsense. Getting yellowsn0w is as simple as can be – just add a new repo to Cydia or Installer and you’re off to the races. For those continuously commenting about the iPhone 3G unlock being useless, please. How about using the iPhone on T-Mobile with EDGE? Most T-Mobile handsets are still without 3G anyway and the iPhone is a device unlike anything currently available from the carrier. We’re not saying it’s better or worse, but it is different and choices are what it’s all about. How about using a local pre-paid SIM while traveling? Nothing like being able to keep your handset along with all of your data while traveling abroad – without having to worry about being bent over by international roaming charges. There are plenty more reasons as well but we won’t bore you with more ranting. Hit the via link for the Dev-Team’s blog post and the read link to get unlocking.
