A special edition PwnageTool is available for download from the infamous iPhone Dev Team which promises a safe baseband unlock to old-generation iPhone users. Unfortunately, iPhone 4 is currently unsupported, yet both Mac and Windows users can employ the latest Dev Team tools to jailbreak and unlock an iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS under iOS 4.2.1.In providing the usual updates for the jailbreak community, the iPhone Dev Team notes:
1. First up is “PwnageTool 4.1.3 Unlock Edition”. It has a special dialog box which will ask you if you want to update to the iPad baseband. You must already have the iPad 3.2.2 IPSW on your computer (see the above link)….so just point PwnageTool at it (or let it find it on its own if you’re in “simple” mode).
2. Directly after PwnageTool 4.1.3 is available, the official ultrasn0w repo http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com will be updated with ultrasn0w 1.2, which covers iPhone 4 baseband 01.59.00 and iPhone 3G/3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and now 06.15.00.
3. Finally, we’ll release an update to redsn0w today for those without Macs and can’t run PwnageTool. The new redsn0w will give you the option to update your baseband to 06.15 too.
