yellowsn0w unlock iPhone 3G

Written By Unknown on Wednesday, December 31, 2008 | 10:12 PM

...

The DevTeam has released yellowsn0w, the world's first iPhone 3G unlock. You must upgrade to the latest baseband 02.28 in order to use it. It is possible to use it with the older baseband on firmware 02.27 but the DevTeam has exclusively restricted it to work with the newest baseband. So if you haven't already, upgrade to firmware 2.2 with the 02.28 baseband! Did you unlock your iPhone 3G? Post back your results here and let everyone know of the experience. From what I hear it should be a very simple automated process. You can download yellowsn0w from Cydia/Installer.

Quick Question - My phone is an unlocked and Jailbroken iPhone 3g, Model MB489J, Modem Firmware 02.11.07. I bought the phone in China and it works perfectly, but I have no idea how it was unlocked, I'm not using a turbosim and there are no marks on the case to indicate that it's been opened and had the insides tampered with. I want to upgrade to 2.2 but know this is a risky process. Any ideas on how I should proceed?

yellowsn0w is only for iPhone 3G BASEBAND (SIMCARD BYPASS) unlocked for sim cards so it wont wotk on the ipod touch for now!!!

Anonymous

OK. Seems that I have found a workaround for the signal problem.

Here below is what I did.

1. re-install yellowsn0w from cydia
2. power off iphone
3. sim card out
4. power on iphone
5. after it's back again, insert your sim card and wait for a few secs

It's stable now.

Hope it helps.

To Anonymous: mobiles in china and hong kong are mostly unlocked due to market demand, iphone included. This is unfortunatly forced upon apple as if the iphone were locked and sold in china or hong kong, there would simply be no market for it. Thats the way it works over there fortunatly =], Source: i frequently visit Hong kong and was there for its release back in july/august.
On-Topic: this yellowsn0w works perfect, just when you reboot the iphone you need to insert the sim and wait at the unlocking screen until it shows youre respective provider i.e. vodaphone. if it doesnt after 30-40 seconds, you will need to re-insert it. but i can reassure you that this unlocking method DOES work, but requires a little intelligence =] > and here is the cydia repo link > http://apt9.yellowsn0w.com/
i tested this unlock with a vodaphone and virgin sim *UK*
Thanks to the DEV team and musclenerd for this!!

and why does my iphone have the inability to post comments on this webiste, ironic knowing that this website only is here because of the iphone ;)> letter authencation cannot be seen..

This works with BHARTI AIRTEL carrier from INDIA.I have a US AT&T iphone 3G that i've been using with turbo sim. Followed the procedure exactly, install bossprefs, disabled everything, put the sim back in and it worked instantly. Made a couple of calls as of now, seems to be stable. Thanks Once again.

I can confirm that this works with Orange UK with 3g on. Many thanks to the devs! To make it work, i installed yellowsn0w via installer with an o2 sim in, rebooted, pressed home then the power button to switch the keylock on. removed o2 sim and replaced with the third party sim (orange voda, etc...) then waited for a few mins and this worked. if 'no sim' or 'invalid sim' is displayed, press home then the power button again remove and insert sim again and wait for network to be found. hope this helps, and if can answer any other questions i will do as i know how desperate i was for this to work. once again many, many thanks to the devs!

This does work, but in an unusual way; at first, the phone kept searching for networks after install. Tried a few reboots, swapped SIMcards multiple times, did not seem to do anything useful. Now I uninstalled yellowsn0w and without reinstalling it magically works perfectly. (Orange Switzerland SIMcard in dutch T-Mobile locked iPhone)

I'm using T-Mobile and having the same problems other are. It shows one bar, but doesn't say T-mobile or anything. I've used some of the tricks posted and i'll finally get it to show T-mobile and five bars, but if it disappears and goes back to simply one bar and no carrier after a few moments. Anyone on t-mobile have much luck with this?

i got it to work yesterday night with my BHARTI MOBILE AIRTEL carrier here in INDIA. But upon restart of the phone, it stopped. I was fiddling around and got it to work again. Made a couple of calls. Then, i synced with itunes and upon restart it wasnt working again.
TO THE DEVELOPERS:
When it did work, the "Carrier" in About section was "AirTel 2.9", and now its "Carrier 2.9". Is that making any difference?

Anyways, it worked for sure. Just takes some goofing around. Great job you guys.

Update: It finally worked. For you T-mobile users after you do everything mentioned here correctly do this: install terminal from Cydia if you don't already have it, open it and type "yellowsn0w -r" without the quotations, then type yellowsn0w -q, and finally turn on airplane mode on and of.. it should work after that... if you have a data plan then go to settings>general>network>cellular data network>edit APN to: internet2.voicestream.com and leave username and password of.

Initially it did not work, but if you reinsert the SIM card it starts working fine.

I am in the UK with an O2 based iPhone that I purchased on the Release Day. After trying both Cydia and Installer installations, I only managed to get an Orange Sim Card working once. As soon as I removed it and plugged it back in, it stopped working. I now do not have any Carrier Name or Signal. As soon as I put the O2 Sim back in, all works fine. I have tried Airplane Mode off and on, waiting 60 seconds etc. I have rebooted numerous times and uninstalled and re-installed. Anything more I can try? Let me know, MIKE.

Just a followup, I have also tried Vodaphone, T-Mobile simcards with the same problem. Also switching 3G on and off does not seem to be doing anything. Wondering if those people with slightly different revisions of the phone are getting any success? Anyone else in the UK got it working?

8. Turn of Airplane mode, you should see "searching" start smiling T-Mobile carrier will start appearing.
9. Start make call!

Use these instructions, they worked perfectly for me, just follow them right. If you already installed it, go into Cydia and reinstall it with your sim in the phone, then follow from step 2 and on. Restarting the phone after it is already done will require you to redo these steps.

Have fun, and try it at least twice before saying it does not work =).

Also could not unlock it as it was not recognized by the PC nor Itunes. Eventualy used a different PC and was able to restore it but still cant install Quickpwn. good luck to all!

it works fine you guys. even for T_mobile users. I have T_Mobile my self. What i did was. remove yellowsnow and reboot your iphone. then reinstall yellow snow agian. after its done installing put your phone on airplane mode and shut your phone down. then take out your sim and reboot. after it reboots turn off the airplane mode and insert your sim. and wait a while and it should start searching and you will have full tmobile signal.

First of, thanks to the dev team, you guys are incredible, I managed to make it work wirh my vodafone sim card but the problem is that I still can't go online with it, I mean there is no chance to activate it via itunes or to just surf in the internet, although I use a flatrate sim card, how can solve that problem???

James from Taipei, Taiwan.

Thanks for Dev' team great job. I have finally made an iPhone from the US with AT&T contract unlocked with my SIM card from Taiwan FarEaston. At beginning it did not work immediately. I then reinstall, use Terminal commands as suggested in the threads, turn on-off Airplane Mode and suddenly it gets the full bars!

I tried on my friend's iPhone in NYC. Now I am going to get another one within his Family package plan for me :-)

Of course he also need it unlocked since he is coming to Taipei with me. That was the original reason I gave it a try here.

Happy New Year to all of you.

Works for me!! Using a T-mobile USA sim card.. When I reboot/restart my iphone though there is only one signal bar and no carrier name.. what i do is i turn on airplane mode for about 7-10secs and turn it off again and it says searching... 3 secs after this i get the signal bars and the tmobile carrier name. tried it 4x and works perfect. I'm pretty sure the devteam will fix this soon

one more thing.. t-zones hack doesnt work for me right now.. i installed it but the problem seems to be that it deletes my apn wap.voicestream.com everytime i go on safari or google maps.. hope they fix this.

Thanks a lot Dev-Team!! went from an 8gb iphone 2g to a 16gb iphone 3g! and i just got it today! Thanks again! hope tzones work on the final release!

SIMPLY PUT ... This is a nice breakthrough but IS NOT STABLE ... still needs lot of work for a proper unlock and signals and carrier activation using Yellowst0ne

Please dont experiment with us and give us a STABLE WORKING SOFTWARE as you have always done before...

i think some congrats is needed for the dev team, they have managed to do this, for nothing. agreed, yellowsn0w is unstable, but considering the first iphone unlock (geohot) was a hardware hack, and the first ipod touch jailbreak needed to be redone about 6 times before it worked, the devteams done an awesome job.

Yesterday I did all the steps:

Install Cyndia through Pwgtool to MAC;
Install the YellowSn0w.

And then today I had no network ... when I was preparing to do everything again, called the iphone to iTunes and I was told if I wanted to make a new profile or keep the old. Select and maintain the previous itunes did updating. when I was preparing to do everything again, voilá iphone got the network (TMN P)!

make and receive calls and sms. Everything OK!

******UPDATE IF YOU CAN'T GET IT TO WORK*********
I followed all the guides and steps on here to no avail. Nothing seemed to work, but I finally figured out how to make it work.
FOR ALL OF YOU WHO HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO GET THIS WORK

first thing you need to do, (assuming you already have bossprefs and yellowsn0w)
go to Cydia and click on search.
search for terminal, you should find mobileterminal.
download this and install it.
now (with your sim card in)

1) go to bosspreffs and turn everything off


2) reset network settings (under settings/general/reset)

3) open up terminal

4) type "yellowsn0w -a"

5) wait, this will take a couple moments

6) terminal will return to command-line entry
and you should see your carrier appear.
you may have 5 bars, 0 bars, or you may have had 5 bars but it became 0.

7) now just wait. soon enough it will reconnect to your service, and be working fine.

^^ Hope that takes care of all your confusion.

happy hacking

Hello All,
1 questions i've yet to see since lurking the net about the lasted iPhone unlock. Within Cydia it still says usings the QuickPWN for windows will keep from future soft unlocking. I know this sounds stupid becuase people are indeed soft unlocking with windows QuickPWN. Sooooo my question is: Is there another soft unlock that is still yet to come that Saurik predicts that will not with if I unlock now using windows, or has he not had an opportunity to update Cydia Home?

I tried this on my iPhone 3G. UK O2 v2.2

It was a bit slow getting going on Orange, but worked after a few reboots. However, when I rebooted and put my o2 simcard back in, it was flaky. 3G and Edge went on and off. Signal went from 4 bars to 0 with no apparent reason and it was 'searching for network' a lot. The biggest problem was that tethering did not work at all with iPhone Modem 2. That app gave the error that there was no 3G or EDGE even though the data connection was working fine at the time. All solved by uninstalling yellowsn0w.

All said and done it's looking promising! I'm super excited for the final version. Keep up the great work! :D

@anonymous whiners: this is a beta soft-unlock. if it doesn't work for you, remove yellowsn0w, quit moaning and be more appreciative.

I'm Brit living in Hanoi, have O2 Prepay I did everything and could not get 3rd party SIM to work always invalid sim, looked at all possible fixes on blogs etc, gave up went back to Rebel SIM with VN SIM (did not uninstall yellows0w or any other software) went to bed.

Today made a few calls, refitted O2 SIM to check balance then fitted VN SIM, IT WORKS including GPRS & Edge

Very strange

I can see a few folks getting a bit irritated on this blog, come on it's free software and you are hacking your phone, if it does not work you have to be patient and a fix will come along, I was disappointed but what the hell shit happens.

Well.. this goes to the Idiot of the CAPS. If you read well they say " USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK" isnt that clear enough for ya?? Ive been a beta tester for many years.. and that software you use it at your own risk also. Seriously, do you think any company that sales software it is a "working" software? just ask the guys at Microsoft, with all their windows version full of bugs.... If you wanna play.. use it.. if you can handle the heat, wait for a more stable version of it. I have a couple of friends that wants to unlock their 3g's cuz they are using a turbo sim, i told them to wait, at least.. A MONTH!!! So if you are stupid enough not to wait or to try it at first.. SUFFER DUDE!!! SUFFER!!!!!! Buaaaahhhhhhhhhh

January 8, 2009 at 3:06 AM

To all those having trouble sending/receiving data: it seems crucial to reset network settings after installing yellowsn0w to get data to work. At least, I couldn't receive any data via 3G or EDGE (using original AT&T card) until I reset network settings.

And for those of you (like me) who are asking "how do I reset network settings?", its:
Settings->General->Reset->Reset Network Settings.

(I was rooting around in Settings-General->Network for quite a while before I figured out that I needed to look elsewhere).

This will reboot the iPhone by itself, and will erase any saved WiFi profiles that you have, but hey, that's more than worth it to unlock your phone, right? :)

Oh, and remember to test 3G/EDGE by turning off WiFi (Settings->General->Network->Wi-Fi).

Apologies to all to whom this is obvious. It wasn't for me.

I had the hardest time using QuickPWN for my 2G iPhone with my 2008 Macbook Pro and OS X 10.5.6 Here is what happened and solution (hope it helps someone else because it caused me a full day of searching the internet for solutions!)

FYI: My iPhone was originally jailbroken by ZiPhone and had version 1.1.4

THE PROBLEM:
1: I synced my iPhone in iTunes (version 7.7) for backup my calendar, contacts, photos, etc
2: Installed iTunes 8.0.2
3: Updated iPhone to 2.2
4: Downloaded QuickPWN 2.2
5: All went well until I got to the IPWS and it froze my iPhone and Mac (could not turn off Mac because QuickPWN blocked it).
6: I thought...I BROKE IT!!

THE SOLUTION:
1: I had to dig out my old PC Windows laptop (running XP)
2: Downloaded iTunes 8.0.2
3: Downloaded QuickPWN 2.2 for Windows
4: Started QuickPWN and it asked for Firmware 2.2 of iPhone (download here http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/01/02/iphone-and-ipod-touch-firmware-software-22-direct-download-links/
5: It asked if I wanted to unlock iPhone (yes!)
6: Then asked for Bootloader v3.9 and v4.6 (download here http://ciappara.wordpress.com/2008/12/21/upgrade-iphone-to-22-on-windows/
7: Quickpwn will ask to hold down the home and power keys...just follow the on screen directions (please note: this QuickPWN Windows process is slightly different then the Mac).
8: QuickPWN worked its magic and the iPhone works GREAT!!
9: I went back to the Mac and restored all my old information through iTunes...perfect!! Contacts, text messages, etc is all there!

That's it! Good luck...the iPhone works great now!! Thanks Dev-Team

I had the hardest time using QuickPWN for my 2G iPhone with my 2008 Macbook Pro and OS X 10.5.6 Here is what happened and solution (hope it helps someone else because it caused me a full day of searching the internet for solutions!)

FYI: My iPhone was originally jailbroken by ZiPhone and had version 1.1.4

THE PROBLEM:
1: I synced my iPhone in iTunes (version 7.7) for backup my calendar, contacts, photos, etc
2: Installed iTunes 8.0.2
3: Updated iPhone to 2.2
4: Downloaded QuickPWN 2.2
5: All went well until I got to the IPWS and it froze my iPhone and Mac (could not turn off Mac because QuickPWN blocked it).
6: I thought...I BROKE IT!!

THE SOLUTION:
1: I had to dig out my old PC Windows laptop (running XP)
2: Downloaded iTunes 8.0.2
3: Downloaded QuickPWN 2.2 for Windows
4: Started QuickPWN and it asked for Firmware 2.2 of iPhone (download here http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/01/02/iphone-and-ipod-touch-firmware-software-22-direct-download-links/
5: It asked if I wanted to unlock iPhone (yes!)
6: Then asked for Bootloader v3.9 and v4.6 (download here http://ciappara.wordpress.com/2008/12/21/upgrade-iphone-to-22-on-windows/
7: Quickpwn will ask to hold down the home and power keys...just follow the on screen directions (please note: this QuickPWN Windows process is slightly different then the Mac).
8: QuickPWN worked its magic and the iPhone works GREAT!!
9: I went back to the Mac and restored all my old iPhone information through iTunes...perfect!! Contacts, text messages, etc is all there!

That's it! Good luck...the iPhone works great now!! Thanks Dev-Team

Hi, I tried to jailbreak my iphone 3g 2.2 (running on a sim 2.2 proxy). It run ok during quickpwn, but was stuck in the apple logo after rebooting (after pineapple). It wont open so i restored in itunes. But i dont have an AT&T card so i can't activate. I tried inserting it into quickpwn but it gets stuck in "Waiting for Iphone to go to recovery mode" step.

Please help.. :(

Ive got a Apple iPhone 3G from T-Mobile Germany with Basebandlock.
I update to Firmware 2.2 and installed QuickPWN 2.2 Jailbreak. Works great!
After that I downloaded and installed yellowsn0w over Cydia and its also working perfect.
I tryed it with Vodafone and O2.
Also 3G is working great after I installed the Settings for each Provider with Cydia.
Thank you very much!

@Rey-you can't quickpwn with a restored phone, quickpwn only works when the phone is DFU and then started to setup like a "new" phone but not actually setup. Your issue might be that it may need to be activated but try it anyway.

Hi,
after i browsed for firmware and selected iPhone1,1_2.2_5G77_Restore.ipsw quickpwn shows the following massage: "The IPSW file you selected (iPhone1,1_2.2) does not match the firmware version of your device (iPhone1,1_2.2). Please note that QuickPwn does not upgrade your firmware, it only jailbreaks whatever firmware you currently have on your device".

Settings:
Version 2.2 (5G77)
Modem Firmware 02.28.00

So i can't continue to the next step (chosing cydia etc.). I've already tried to upgrade my firmware via itunes 8.0 but as mentioned above it also states that i have the latest firmware. Don't know how to continue with quickpwn - need help. thanks in advance.

Hi,
I have a first generation iphone, I upgrade it to 2,2 with itunes, then quickPwn 2,2. I have a macbook Air and the first time it didn't works for the known problems. Then I did it with a usb hub and it worked fine, and I also backup all my files, but now my phone doesn't works. It always says no signal... HELP!

Does anyone know if you can use apps from the appstore with this break? In prior versions, ppl said their appstore apps would not launch.

Thx!

It's working now. (Smart Philippines)

I posted before that i was unable to jailbreak and unlock my iphone 3g. But i followed the advice from one of the posters and it worked for me (See below). I think the problem was i used the default ipsw file from itunes. So i downloaded the "...RESTORE.ipsw" from the link provided below and used it to update my iphone. After that seeing that it says it needs to be activated, i attached it to QuickPwn and proceeded with the jailbreak. The first time didn't go through, always seem to be stuck at the apple logo rebooting continously and never reaching the lock screen (happened twice for both iphones i was jailbreaking). But the second time was a charm. Second time i restored using the restore ipsw and proceeded with the jailbreak. It run ok (no signal yet) so i proceeded with the yellowsnow and just did some tweaking like reboot, reinsert seem or airplane mode and after a while i saw the 3G signal. :)

So all in all it's working for us. This saved me alot of money having to go to a mall and have my iphone unlocked.

btw. Thanks Richard for the comment and IPhone Dev Team for the charity work your doing.
