Yellowsn0w - Success! iPhone 3G Software Unlock works!



Since the Dev Team updated yellowsn0w to 0.9.4, and fixed a lot of bugs, and changed a few methods of baseband injection and fixed re-insertion after reboot, for many many users. Yellowsn0w has magically started working, and unlocking quite a few iPhone 3G's.

Heres my experience from it.

I just wanted to report a method that definitely works for 3 iPhone 3G's ive tried in India. (Mumbai to be precise)

1. AT&T Locked iPhone 3G 16GB White
Installed Yellowsn0w 0.9.4, Rebooted Twice with BossPref's, Got Signal. Everything works, DATA, Call in/out, SMS in/out.
(Both with Airtel India and Vodafone India SIM's.

2. Vodafone Locked iPhone 3G 16GB Black
Installed Yellowsn0w 0.9.4, Rebooted Twice with BossPref's, Got Signal. Everything works, DATA, Call in/out, SMS in/out.
(Airtel India SIM was used, AT&T USA SIM also got me signal, but I didnt make a call since it would have charged my friend, like LOL. xD)

3. Vodafone Locked iPhone 3G 8GB Black
Installed Yellowsn0w 0.9.4, Rebooted Twice with BossPref's, Got Signal. Everything works, DATA, Call in/out, SMS in/out.
(Airtel India SIM was used)

All 3 phones, even after a normal reboots, get signal in about 5-6 seconds after bootup, and never drops.
Works perfectly.

Thanks for fixing the bugs Dev Team!

Id like like to write a small little tutorial for how to get your iPhone 3G Unlocked as well.

1. Restore to Firmware 2.2 (Download here)
2. Download QuickPwn (Download here)
3. Jailbreak your phone (Follow this tutorial MAC / PC)
4. Go to Cydia, Add the Repository ("http://apt9.yellowsn0w.com/")
You can do this by going to Manage > Sources > Edit > Add.
You need either Wi-Fi/EDGE for the step onwards, ofcourse.
5. Search for "yellowsn0w" in the Search tab in Cydia. Download and Install.
6. Search for "BossPrefs". Download and Install.
7. Close Cydia. Open BossPrefs, restart your iPhone using the BossPrefs Restart option. (BossPrefs > Power > Reboot)
8. Wait for your phone to boot up, again open up Cydia, and reboot using BossPrefs again.
9. Wait for your phone to boot up, you should see Signal appearing. Test calls/sms/data, etc.
10. If for whatever reason, you dont get signal. Remove your SIM, put in back in.
11. Wait 1.5 minutes, Enable Airplane Mode, Wait 10 Seconds, Disable Airplane Mode.
12. You should see Signal appearing. If not, your outta luck!

@ sickizblank, Your post wasn't approved because it wasn't properly formatted.

Also, it was a bit late, and had no information what-so-ever, except "The Unlock is out" and heres the link.

I had already posted this iPhone 3G Unlock is out! Only for 2.28.00 Baseband! Time to Update! (on 01-01-2009, 12:32 PM while you posted Yesterday @ 09:17 PM)

Re: Yellowsn0w - Success! iPhone 3G Software Unlock works!

SBsettings reboot didnt work for me earlier with 0.9.1 to even get me signal.
BossPrefs did. So, I think you should stick to using BossPrefs.

SBSettings is definately a replacement for BossPrefs, but I cant do without BossPref's, (What if MobileSubstrate goes into safe mode? )
