New blackra1n RC3 jailbreak RC3 is 15 seconds faster than the rest
George Hotz, also known as Geohot, has announced iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS unlock dubbed as Blacksn0w. Earlier, the iPhone OS 3.1.2 updated the baseband to 05.11.07 which was not unlockable. With new Blackra1n RC3 jail breaking tool, users can update to unlock their baseband in iPhone OS 3.1.2 and 'hacktivate' it.
Blacksn0w caters to iPhone owners with 3.1.2 firmware and 04.26 baseband who can now easily unlock their iPhone to latest baseband. Unlocking the baseband version makes the iPhone useable with any mobile carrier. Users updating to 05.11.07 baseband won't get to see anything new on their iPhones. However, a word of caution here is that baseband once updated, can not be downgraded to previous versions.
Blackra1n application jailbreaks iPhone devices faster than other tool. Once its jailbroken, tap the Blackra1n icon and install Cydia, Rock and blacksn0w packages.
The jailbroken iPhone users can add a new repository blackra1n.com from Manage>Sources panel in Cydia. Note that this unlock is available for free. With this unlock, even the most recently produced iPhone 3GS models can be jailbroken and unlocked to be used with any mobile carrier.
