5 hours ago Dev-Team Blog (http://blog.iphone-dev.org/) reported that in 12 hours they will broadcast a live video and audio stream "(from an iPhone 2G) of an iPhone 3G being soft-unlocked with yellowsn0w".

As already reported yellowsn0w is a software unlock and the unlock method is only available to iPhone 3Gs that have 2.11.07 baseband or earlier. So if you updated to firmware 2.2 (who didn't?) you will not be able to unlock your iPhone 3G. As reported by the dev team, the unlock requires a jailbroken 3G iPhone. and will be installable via Cydia so it doesn’t matter if you have a Mac or PC.

So check out Dev-Team Blog (http://blog.iphone-dev.org/) to see the video in 7 hours.

I guess that's a good enough reason to wake up at 5am

Is it possible to downgrade the baseband software to one that will be unlockable?

Nope.

The dev team warned people of this.

That is great!

Did they mention that it will be available new years?
