Update 4: (a) The yellowsn0w Cydia package will be available as soon as our devteam member in charge of the repo wakes up to fix a file permission error. (b) Once it’s out, those users with SIMs that have apps and other menus on them will need to do that extra step we’ve been talking about. They’ll need to pull and reinsert the SIM once after rebooting the phone to engage the unlock. Even though it’s needed only once per boot, it’s still a nuisance and we’ll be fixing that ASAP. (c) You’ll know if you fall into that “extra step” category if your carrier doesn’t show up within about 10 seconds of the slide to unlock screen. (d) Yes it really is for baseband 02.28.00. That means everyone can use it now! (e) Happy New Year!
Still waiting. Apparently this is a tiny daemon that runs at boot and will simply blow your baseband into kingdom come. The natives at the dev blog are restless. To wit:
all people waiting for “yellowsn0w”, why dev team doesn’t released on time at promised? I very hard to trust dev team at the moment. the video show for 2.1 unlocking so many days passed, you dev team shall done the software and release on time before 2008. we are unhappy on the first day of 2009, because all the world people waiting for you dev team’s yellowsn0w. you gave us very bad new year!
