Geohot (iPhone hacker) has released blacksn0w to unlock iPhone running iPhone OS 3.1.2 and baseband 05.11.07.

Along with blacksn0w, Geohot is also releasing sa new version of his popular and extremely simple iPhone jailbreaking tool blackra1n RC3, with hactivation support, 15 second speed improvement, Tiger+PPC support, and installation of the latest blackra1n.app.

He has provided the following details on his blog for userswho have already used blackra1n to jailbreak theiriPhone:

If you are a loyal blackra1n user who kept the blackra1n.app on your iPhone, run it. You will see Icy replaced by an option "ra1n". Install this to upgradeyour app. After upgrading, run blackra1n.app again. You will see "sn0w". Install this, and enjoy your unlocked iPhone.

If you’re planning to unlock your iPhone for the first time then he has the following instructions for you:

If you are new to the scene, just looking for an unlock, finally ready to upgrade to 3.1.2 and the accompanying baseband, willing to restore for the latest and greatest, or stuck on the "Connect to iTunes" screen, you are in luck. Jailbreaking and unlocking have never been easier. Go to blackra1n.com, click on the logo corresponding to your operating system, run the app, and click "make it ra1n". When your phone reboots, you'll see blackra1n.app. Run this, install blacksn0w, and enjoy your unlocked iPhone.

He also plans to release blacksn0w via Cydia so you can install it if you have jailbroken your iPhone using PwnageTool.

If you jailbroke using pwnage or deleted your blackra1n.app, you are in luck too. Sometime later in the sn0wday, blacksn0w will be added to Cydia.

Blacksn0w will unlock iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS, if you are an iPhone 2G user then Geohot has provided the following instructions:

If you are on a 2G iPhone, blacksn0w isn't an option for you. But BootNeuter is, a completely free permanent unlock for your 2G. Of course, blackra1n will work great, and even hacktivate for you.

Geohot recommends:

Clean firmware 3.1.2 and baseband 05.11.07 are recommended.

You can install blacksn0w on your iPhone to unlock it using blackra1n. You can download the latest version of blackra1n fromthis link.


Geohot has also release blacksn0w via Cydia. To install it on your iPhone, add blackra1n.com as repository.

Please remember hacking your iPhone could void its warranty. So please proceed with caution and at your own risk. It is always a good idea to take a backup of your iPhone before you hack it, refer to this post for more details.

If the solutions works for you, don’t forget to drop over at the blackra1n’s website to give Geohot a donation for all his hard work.

As always, if you give it a shot let us know how it goes.

Recently, we decided to try and cut back on costs (when it comes to CELL PHONE bills), so we optimized our T-Mobile bills, as much as humanly possible !!!

First off, make sure your iPhone is Jailbroken , and Unlocked ... and then we'll get rolling !!!

T-Mobile has (Unlimited Minutes) plans, for $149.99 a month ... and they also have 2500 anytime minutes / 1800 anytime minutes ... but they're still pricey!!! You're looking at OVER $90 a month, just for VOICE !!

Here's how we optimized our T-Mobile bills :::

1. Signed up with the $69.99 , 1000 anytime minutes, free nights & weekends, free mobile 2 mobile plan ... (includes 2 lines)

2. Called into customer support, after a few representatives, we had them add 5 myfaves FOR FREE, to each line, because we have been t-mobile customers for more than 10 months (doesn't work with new customers)

3. After talking to MANY representatives.... we finally got the $5.99 t-zones internet plan added to the account (which is unlimited internet access, instead of paying $34.99 a month!!) Now, we set our APN to : epc.tmobile.com / or / wap.voicestream.com , either works!!! And, you still get google maps / email / and full web browsing !!!

4. Now, after 3 or 4 days of calling, we had told a representative that we wanted to switch to Verizon, so they immediately transferred us to Customer Account Specialists, where they added UNLIMITED texting for families, for $9.99 !!!

5. Signed up with Skype (click here to signup !!!, it's only $2.95 a month for 10,000 minutes!!!), and downloaded the iPhone app, through the app store.. Now, whenever we're in Wi-Fi, we can make FREE calls !!! (there's wi-fi EVERYWHERE!!)

6. Downloaded (voipover3g, and tricker3g) through Cydia ... restarted iPhone's, and now Skype works over EDGE (not that great of call quality, but it still works!!!)

7. Signed up with Google Voice (takes about a week to get invited into Google Voice), set google voice number as myfave (unlimited incoming, and outgoing calls... for FREE!!!)

Now, we officially have :
- $69.99 a month /
1000 minutes / 2 lines / unlimited Myfaves minutes / unlimited nights & weekends / unlimited mobile 2 mobile
- $FREE /
set Google Voice number as one of our MYFAVES numbers = unlimited calls
- $5.99 a month /
unlimited internet
- $9.99 a month /
unlimited texting for families
- $2.95 a month /
unlimited calling with Skype (click here to signup)
- 12% AAA Discount with T-Mobile

So basically, Unlimited calls, Unlimited Texting, Unlimited Internet....
All for $75.47 a MONTH!!!

Since all of us ALREADY have wifi at home, we were even thinking about going from the 1000 minute family plan to the 700 minute family plan, and saving $10 a month!!! Skype is actually faster than the real dialer (on the iPhone), and it's only $2.95 a month for 10,000 minutes !!!

Thank you (RJSummons18) for submitting this request to us!!! AWESOME FIND!!!

A couple of us were looking around in Cydia over the past few days, when we stumbled across a couple programs we thought would be pretty cool to test out!

So, this is how we did it ...

First off, we're using a 16gb iPhone 3G, running 3.0 firmware, jailbroken & unlocked for T-Mobile , and also, a 16gb iPhone 3G, running 3.0 firmware, jailbroken for AT&T, and we downloaded (Tricker ThreeG) and (VoIPover3G) through Cydia, and went from there!

We signed up with iCall (free calling over wi-fi), downloaded Fring (through app store) and Skype (through app store), and found out that , by using (Tricker ThreeG and VoIPover3G), we could make calls over T-Mobile's EDGE network, and also, AT&T's 3G network...

T-Mobile's EDGE network is EXTREMELY horrible when you're making VoIP calls over it, but it works!! , there's just SO MUCH lag, and it's very crackly on the other person's end... BUT, if you're out of minutes, and need to make a call.... this is the way to go!!!

On the other hand, AT&T's 3G network is AMAZING for VoIP calling, and we found that Skype is the best quality calling you can possibly get when it comes to (Cellular Data Networks), versus Fring and iCall (iCall coming in 2nd place), and we used Fring with (VoIPStunt)...

With AT&T's 3G network, we were constantly at a reasonable talking level, and neither us, nor the other party had any trouble hearing eachother... SO, we've decided to cut back on how many minutes we're getting through AT&T, (going from 900 to 400), and instead, we'll be using Skype for most of our calls from now on (as we're almost ALWAYS in 3G).

You can download these programs through Cydia, then restart your iPhone, and download Skype through the app store, but make sure you have a skype account before you download the app!! It's about $3.00 a month for UNLIMITED calling, and I (and 3 other guys) are saving roughly $25 a month by using this option!!

You can CLICK HERE to sign up with Skype and test it out for yourself!!!

Definitely an AWESOME find !!!
