iPhone OS 3.0 Is Jailbreakable

21 03 2009

As you may already know, iPhone 3.0 offers over 100 new features including copy & paste, MMS, voice recording, etc. This update is huge and you’ll definitely want to upgrade your iPhone once it’s released this summer. See iPhone OS 3.0 features here.

iPhone Dev-Team confirmed that iPhone 3.0 Beta can be jailbreakable for both iPhone 2G & 3G. It’s incredible how iPhone Dev Team does that in so short period of time. But one thing the team stressed is that, DO NOT UPGRADE TO iPhone 3.0 directly for iPhone 3G when it is released. This will upgrade the baseband that your iPhone can no longer be unlocked using yellowsn0w:

And for those wondering, yes the 3.0 OS is jailbreakable on all devices. It’s just those using 3G yellowsn0w that have to show some restraint and wait for PwnageTool to create a custom IPSW that avoids the baseband update.

For those who are new to iPhone 3.0, it is the next version of iPhone firmware. Presently, it’s still in beta and available for iPhone developers. Apple is target to release it publicly this summer.
