Its now been a number of years since iPhone Dev Team unleashed this amazing tool and to say how important the role of ultrasn0w has been to many iPhone users would be an understatement. Anyone who relies on their carrier / network to be unlocked in order to use their iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4 on another GSM carrier, now has the opportunity to take the iOS 4.3.1 upgrade while remaining unlocked thanks to ultrasn0w 1.2.1.

With the launch of Apple’s iPad 3G this week, most users will have been having one thing on their mind, is it jailbreakable / unlockable? As Geohot demonstrated shortly after iPad WiFi launched, it is indeed jailbreakable, it is just a matter of time when either Geohot or the iPhone Dev Team releases their magic to the public. In the video below, MuscleNerd from the iPhone Dev used the “Spirit” jailbreak, a software that promises untethered unlocking of Apple’s recent devices, therefore its not just the iPad concerned but also iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G. The Dev Team has promised to release Spirit to the public soon.

Well this isn’t too surprising, jailbreak for iPad – done and dusted. Literally a day after its release, the iPad has been jailbroken by the iPhone Dev Team and can currently run an SSH server. The iPad which runs the iPhone OS firmware version 3.2 had a number of unpatched security holes before it launched and it turns out these flaws have now been released to the public. iPhone Dev Team were able to easily exploit this and jailbreak it using their existing iPhone 3.1.3 hack.

The iPhone Dev Team have released their latest updated version of PwnageTool, 3.1.3. This new jailbreak tool extends its reach to the third generation iPhone 3GS as well as second generation iPod Touch. For those who would like full confirmation, the new PwnageTool 3.1.3 now supports iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and first and second gen iPod Touch.

If you’ve got a non-jailbroken iPhone 3GS running 3.1, now’s your chance to redeem it into a proper iPhone once more. The upgraded PwnageTool allows the 3GS (and the second gen iPod touch) to be jailbroken thus allowing users to gain access to third party apps on Cydia for example. That’s the good news, there is one bad news though. The new PwnageTool still lacks the ability to jailbreak brand new iPhones which have come straight-out-of-the-box installed with iPhone OS 3.1.

Update (04/11/2009): Those who have 05.11.xx baseband but have not been able to use fuzzyband’s baseband downgrader due to various reasons including non-supporting bootloader version should have a look at a new unlock tool released for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS by Geohot. It’s known as blacksn0w, it will work for iPhones running the latest firmware 3.1.2 on baseband 05.11.07: http://www.gadgetlite.com/2009/11/04/blacksn0w-iphone-3g-3gs-os-3-1-2/

We’ve been increasing contacted about whether it is possible to downgrade the new iPhone OS 3.1’s newly upgraded baseband 05.11.07 on the iPhone 3G / 3GS. At first we were quite convinced that the iPhone Dev Team would soon work something out for those who have mistakenly upgraded their iPhone 3G / 3GS and wait. But now it seems many are now understandably eager and want to be able to use their locked up iPhones again. That’s the bad news, the good news now is that there is a method to safely downgrade your iPhone 3G’s updated baseband from 05.11.07 back to an ultrasn0w unlockable baseband – 04.26.08.
