iPhone Dev Team Updates Blog

The iPhone Dev Team has updated their blog with interesting information. First, they have developed a new method to dump WiFi tables and the seczones. This will help the "downgrading and upgrading" processes.

They also have addressed that the unlock for the iPhone 3G is making good progress, but there is no release date.

Finally they close by explaining some cryptic posts they posted earlier.
A week ago, we posted a screenshot of an iPhone 3G downgraded to an earlier baseband firmware. We are able to execute unsigned code on the baseband in order to circumvent a security check, which then allows us to flash the baseband to an earlier version. Of course, this isn’t a 3G unlock (as yet) but it is a demonstration of our ability to hand-control the baseband.

With all this upgrading and downgrading, we were worried about bricks, so we’ve developed a method to dump the WiFi tables and the seczones. Now we can modify without sweating, since a successful recovery can be made at any point. With this out of the way, changing our underwear every 5 minutes isn’t necessary!

So, we are making steady progress towards the goal of a software-based iPhone 3G unlock. Please note though that we are working hard on it with no estimates of if and when it will be completed. We’ll update you as soon as we know anything else so stay tuned and watch this space.
