Short and sweet! The software unlock software codenamed yellowsn0w is first uploaded to the iPhone and then it is run via OpenSSH on a Mac, simple huh! Even simpler is the fact that it takes less than 8 seconds from running the software to actually seeing the new carrier’s signal! This functionality will be neatly packaged into an App which will be available on Cydia this New Year’s eve. Merry Christmas everybody!

iPhone 3G Unlock (codename : yellowsn0w) is finally ready for general consumption with an anticipated release date of December 25 ~ 31 (Christmas — > New Year’s eve!). It is currently undergoing idiot proof GUI packaging for the total noobs! However, those users who accidentally upgraded to 2.2 firmware from iTunes have no other choice but to resort to x-Sim solutions or a possible baseband downgrade from 2.28 to 2.11 (hopefully).
Great job iPhone Dev Team, you really rock the iPhone world and Apple likes it too, not sure about ATT …

3G, battery, iPhone 3G, Review »

Mophie Juice Pack is an absolute godsend given the fact that my iPhone 3G repeatedly gave up on me on numerous occassions. What good is all the technology if it cannot last for one day ( I mean 9 AM to 9PM at the least!) with regular usage (Emails, Camera, Apps, Safari, GPS) ? I started using the iPhone less frequently when I am on the go ( on a trip, …) trying to preserve the battery but doesn’t it defeat the purpose of owning the BEST gadget on planet …

2.1, 3G, iPhone 2.0, iPhone 3G »

iPhone 2.1 firmware released today (Friday, Sept 12) greatly enhances your overall iPhone expereince, very close to the pre 2.0 updates (last stable update was 1.1.4!). If you are a legit iPhone user, there is no point holding off since iPhone 2.1 is not easily jailbreakable yet. So, what are those amazing features 2.1 has brought? Absolutely not NEW but a VERY stable system altogether! A quick run down of my experiences so far :

ATT, Deal, Deals, iPhone 3G »

Just a shout to those early adopters who stood in line for an iPhone and got a new line activated such that the contract can be terminated after a month by paying the ETF ($175) and owning the device without an enormously huge data plan requirement! Things get really interesting now! What if you slide a SIM with iPhone 2G plan into the 3G iPhone – will we be able to save $15 every month by gaining 200 free SMS messages and 2G data plan pricing!

In effect, for a 16GB …

iFixit has done what they are so good in – cracking open to find the traces of hardware used! They travelled all the way to Auckland to lay their hands on the 3G iPhone which was released first in NZ for a change (time zone game!). Hardware is so much more sophisticated if not for way too many changes. Just that you don’t need to be an electronics major now to use the solder iron the iPhone 3G.

3G, ATT, GPS, iPhone 3G, iPhone Plan »

[10 Jun 2008 | 5 Comments | ]

Yeah, they did it with iPhone 1.0 and now with the latest iPhone 3G. They remain the exclusive carrier of the iPhone 3G despite Apple ending revenue sharing agreement with ATT over iPhone to reach the masses, they now want to hop-in on the extra revenue by charging a ransom for 3G network access in a not-so 3G rich America.
As of today (June 9th, ’08), only 285 metropolitan areas have ATT’s 3G access in the US and they expect $30 for Unlimited 3G data plan ($45 for biz. users), that …

Just sift through some quick info about the new 3G iPhone here. Now you are all set for the next part :
Buy a 16GB iPhone 2.0 given the faster data speeds and the obvious amount of data downloaded. Don’t say you were not warned! If you want to stick to the legal mobile provider, best bet is to sign a new contract, get a free ATT phone – sell it off eBay and then use the money to buy an iPhone (you end up getting it for free, right?)!!
Best bet for …

Quick Updates :
3G, GPS, Better Battery Life, Thinner, Same size Screen, No Copy / Paste Support Yet, iPhone 2.0 Firmware released Early July (11th Supposedly).
Best part : Affordability. $199 (8GB) and $299 (16GB) – Technology can never be more affordable! July 11th – Lines and lines and lines as usual! No news of ATT contracts, hence the same old story of Jailbreaking/Unlocking might persist here as well. Too bad all those who forked out $499 for a 16GB might end up losing some BIG bucks given the $299 pricepoint for its elder brother.
