Ultrasn0w Permanently Unlocks The iPhone 3G On Baseband 06.15

Here is some good news and possibly some bad news for 3G users. According to @MuscleNerd’s tweet, the Ultrasn0w unlock for baseband 06.15 will be permanent.

Because there’s no 4.3 beta for iPhone3G, it’s effectively unlocked for life via the 06.15 ultrasn0w unlock

However, here is the bad news. This means that iPhone 3G users will not get the iOS 4.3 update and will possibly be locked out of any future updates coming from Apple too.

The iPhone 3G was launched around 3 years ago, so it makes sense for Apple to remove support for the device considering that they might launch the iPhone 5 this year.

So have fun with your unlocked for life iPhone 3G but don’t expect any new goodies from Apple.

Dev Team Is Not Pleased About GeoHot’s Comeback

Oh my God, there is a big big problem in the jailbreaking community and it is not about Apple’s closed system. It is more about what is happening with GeoHot’s announcement that he is going to come back into the jailbreaking scene with his latest offering Limera1n.

GeoHot and Dev Team Problems

Limera1n which is a lifetime jailbreak for all Apple devices from GeoHot exploits a bootrom exploit which the Dev team has been working on, but GeoHot’s announcement to release this to pubic is definitely not going down well with the Dev team.

For a prolog, GeoHot’s decision to quit the jailbreaking scene had similar reactions, from the public though. You might want to read up the comments on this post to learn about it.

So if this going to create a long term issue within the jailbreaking community who help users jailbreak iPhone, jailbreak iPod Touch and jailbreak iPad? Well, the next few days will make things more clearer.

iOS 4.1 Jailbreak/Unlock Under Development, Might Take Time

for and was released earlier today (iOS 4.1 Direct Download Links) and it looks like the jailbreak for iOS 4.1 might take longer than usual. According to some updates from the Dev Team, an exploit for iOS 4.0.1 was found found when 4.1 went live.

Crazy timing that @pod2g got latest exploit just as 4.1 went public (lots of work left…keep away from 4.1 for now!)

A concrete jailbreak for iPhone or Unlock for iPhone is not yet available and the Dev Team even went ahead and posted about the iOS 4.1 update being a trap to possibly permanently get rid of jailbreaks and unlocks, you can read the post here.

There is no release date available on the iOS 4.1 jailbreak, however, considering that iOS 4.1 beta versions were already jailbroken, it might come out sooner than expected.

If you have a jailbroken iPhone or jailbroken iPod Touch you are advised to stay away from this update. A jailbreak/unlock for iOS 4.1 should be available shortly.

We will keep an eye for updates from the Dev team on new jailbreaks/unlocks for iPhone and iPod Touch running iOS 4.1. Stay tuned.

iOS 4.1 Jailbreak Watermark Fake According to Dev Team

Apple released the beta for earlier today and there have been some rumors that Apple may display a watermark on the phone that it is jailbroken, just like Windows shows a “Not Genuine” alert for PCs.

Also, iOS 4.1 has new encryption technology, that will constantly check if iPhone or iPod touch, have been jailbroken. This is done by digital watermark that appears when iOS is jailbroken, and this watermark cannot be removed, even if reverted to unjailbroken status. Apple store employees will check for the watermark during iPhone service.

However, @MuscleNerd from Dev Team has said that just like earlier rumors about the AT&T OTA jailbreak detector, this “Watermark” encryption is ┬ájust rumor. This comes from a guy who has been working on jailbreaking the iPhone for quite sometime now.

So rest assured, the Watermark encryption should be not be a problem, and even if it does you can be rest assured that the Dev team will take care of it.
