Dev Team ships iPhone 2.2 unlocking tools

The game continues once again, on news this morning the iPhone Dev Team has successfully built software to unlock iPhones and iPod touch devices running software version 2.2, released by Apple last week.

The DevTeam has released Pwnage Tool and QuickPwn 2.2 Windows users only have QuickPwn.

“If you have a 3G iPhone and want potential soft unlock in the near future do NOT use QuickPwn, and do not use the official ipsw or the iTunes update process without using PwnageTool,” the team warns.

The team notes that Apple’s new software updated the baseband on the 3G iPhone, which means the iPhone Dev Team are advising unlockers not to use Pwnage, as it will revert to the older (slower) baseband.

Baseband is the generic name given to the internal components of the iPhone that handle the phone calls and Internet access. This ‘baseband’ is a tiny and unique independent computer system that runs inside your iPhone, it is separate to the main system that handles the applications (such as email and Google Maps) and talks to the main part of the phone over an internal communications network.

There’s a host of information on unlocking, full instructions and links to the unlocking tools on the Dev Team website.

    I have a 3G iPhone and accidently updated to 2.2, I am using a turbo-sim chip with T-mobile. I understand about the unlock feature not being able to be accessed in the 3G, but is there any why I can repair it, once I have updated the software. This is my main phone can you please advise.

Add http://free-cell-phone-unlock.com to your list of free cell phone unlock sites, I use the downloads there a lot to help me unlock phones for customers, don’t be mad but hey I have to make a living some kinda way!! lol.

    Anyways, I figured you could use that in your bag of tricks too 🙂

    Great write up. The iPhone is truly amazing and I don’t like being without it. This time last year I had jumped in a pool with my iPhone and it was dead. I had to wait 10 days before I was able to get a new one. The phone I had was a cheap go phone. I really love all the games that can be downloaded to the iPhone. The best part about the iPhone to me is the ability to check emails on the go. Thanks for the information.
