The iPhone Dev Team group of skilled and intrepid firmware developers have announced that they will demonstrate a fully working version of the yellowsnow unlock tool for the official build of iPhone OS 3.0 which will be available for download on Wednesday and released as default on the iPhone 3G S.
This development is notable as the DevTeam is known for quick and fully functional releases of their venerable unlock tools in PwnageTool and QuickPwn for Mac and Windows respectively not long after Apple releases major and minor software updates for iPhone.
The Dev Team does stress that little information on unlock tool development for the 3G S will be released, owing to Apple’s ability to patch any exploits that might be found after release of the hardware via constant development updates.
Update: As promised, the Dev Team has demonstrated the new unlock tool for iPhone 3.0 on iPhone/iPhone 3G, now known as ultrasn0w.

The unlock is planned to be available on Friday barring any last-minute issues.

this is wrong info, os 3.0 is available for download tomorrow, 6/17/09
It is but developers got the 3.0 GM a week ago, which is the final version of 3.0. Tomorrow is the public release but its not different from the GM release. Thats why they were able to work on 3.0. I currently have 3.0 on my iphone.
This is not saying that they are releasing 3.0. It is saying that they are going to introduce an unlocking tool like the pwonage tool. Read the article and you will know.
3.0 was leaked weeks ago.
Read the article people. This not about the release of 3.0. Its about unlocking tool for 3.0. cmon .
I think some people just weren’t under the impression that 3.0 had been finalized and released to developers already. That said, it was news that we covered live with our WWDC coverage.
No, in the USA, the update for the 3.0 software is still on the 17th, but it will be sometime around 8 to 10am PCT.
Like any iPhone release You all fail at life.
When you plug your iphone in and iTunes says heres some firmware!
This is when it’s Available, Go to Bed and let the dev team work.
Any firmware out on the internet IS NOT let me say again IS FRACKING NOT the final release. Like all IPSW releases the final build will likely be different.
Just go to bed and update tomorrow, As far as I know Steve has not outfitted your phone with legs.
Although a portable suicide booth would be a great Idea for some of you.
Porkchop, your comments are about as warranted as they are respectful. We previously reported the potential difference between “GM Seed” and an actual final release.
Well, for all you girls fighting over nothing, the final release is the same build the GM is/was.
