Early today morning we reported about you about final iPhone Firmware 3.0 Features list which was previewed at Macworld Expo 2009 San Francisco. The next question which immediately comes after iPhone new firmware 3.0 is, will it be possible to jailbreak and unlock ?
Well Dev Team has some positive answers for this. The good news is that iPhone Dev Team have successfully Jailbroken iPhone Firmware 3.0 beta version which was distributed at Macworld expo.
Here is what iPhone Dev Team says,
“with all of the great stuff lined up for us with the 3.0 OS that Apple described today, many 3G owners may find themselves with itchy update fingers. If you find yourself with access to the 3G IPSW for 3.0 via the iPhone Dev Center program, and you are using yellowsn0w, do not update or restore to that official IPSW. You will lose yellowsn0w and find yourself unable to revert the baseband to get it back.
And for those wondering, yes the 3.0 OS is jailbreakable on all devices. It’s just those using 3G yellowsn0w that have to show some restraint and wait for PwnageTool to create a custom IPSW that avoids the baseband update.”
Above comment from iPhone Dev team makes it clear that Firmware 3.0 is still jailbrekable but do not restore your iPhone 3G to Firmware 3.0 if you want to have unlock capability with yellowsn0w. You need to wait for custom iPhone Firmware 3.0 ipws file created using pwnagetool.
Update : iPhone OS 3.0 final has been released.
