Unlock any iPhone

Unlock any iPhone

It is now possible to unlock any iPhone, yes – the iPhone 3G S unlock tool is now available. Actually, there are two.

There was no fuss, no official announcement, no press release, but the DevTeam’s iPhone 3G S unlock was sneakily released in the recent redsn0w 0.8.

After making the announcement that there would be no 3G S unlock until at least iPhone OS 3.1, this release came unexpectedly, but perhaps not surprisingly. after all, the DevTeam had been beaten to it, and provoked, by the earlier release of purplera1n – the first iPhone 3G S unlock tool made widely available.

GeoHot, the creator of purplera1n, taunted the DevTeam by saying “Normally I don’t make tools for the general public, and rather wait for the dev team to do it. But guys, whats up with waiting until 3.1? That isn’t how the game is played. We release, Apple fixes, we find new holes. It isn’t worth waiting because you might have the “last” hole in the iPhone. What last hole…this isn’t golf. I’ll find a new one next week.”

Great to have some competition – it drives technological advances.

It actually reminds me of the old DarkAlex/M33 competitiveness for PSP downgrading – but they turned out to be one and the same…

If you are considering unlocking your iPhone, get a free iPhone first in case you brick it.
