iPhone 3.0 Beta Unlocked

Someone has released a jailbreak for one of the betas of the iPhone 3.0 firmware.  The iPhone dev team, who are responsible for the 3G unlock released a few months ago, hurried to get a post up explaining why they weren’t the ones to release  this latest exploit.  

They offer proof that they had a jailbreak a few weeks ago, but they kept it to themselves because they’d rather work towards a carrier unlock of 3.0, than try to keep up with a stream of beta releases from Apple.

Before you decide you want to be all cutting edge, a few things to keep in mind before trying to install one of the 3.0 betas, much less jailbreak it.

  • The new firmware doesn’t work with the baseband 02.28 firmware unlocked by yellowsn0w.
  • Apple is just going to release a new version.
  • You may render it impossible to ever unlock your iPhone 3G
  • You may not be able to roll back to the released firmware
  • Its a knock off of the hard work of the iPhone dev team.

If you still want to go ahead and do it, you can find it here.
