Finally, the tool, Yellowsn0w, to unlock iPhone 3G firmware 2.2 has been released. This would be the biggest New Year’s gift for iPhone 3G users as Yellowsn0w by Dev Team, which has previously brought tools to unlock iPhone 2g and iPod Touch.

Yellowsn0w can unlock iPhone 3G firmware 2.2, which means you can now use the iPhone 3G with any carrier you want! Yellowsn0w download was supposed to be released right on New Year’s Eve, but got late due to some reasons.


Remember, this tool will only work with iPhone 3G firmware 2.2 baseband 02.28.0 and not with any previous ones. So it is recommended to all iPhone jailbreakers to upgrade to the latest baseband first!
