If an O2 contract’s all that’s standing in-between you and an iPhone 3G, then hardware hackers the iPhone Dev Team have a treat for you: an upcoming unlocking tool.

According to the team’s blog, it has successfully cracked the iPhone 3G for use on any network with an unlock codenamed 'yellowsn0w'.

Unfortunately, the unlock won’t be available until New Year’s Eve, but the team’s promised that it’ll have a simple GUI interface style akin to the existing QuickPwn jalbreaking application.

The team cautioned that the unlock will only work on iPhone 3Gs with baseband version 2.11.07 or earlier - the firmware that runs on the handset's modem hardware. The unlock will also require the phone to be jailbroken first, and will be installable through the Cydia app installer tool.

If you’re still a little perplexed about the process, then fear not, because the team’s promised to upload a live demo of the unlock process sometime before the application's launched.

Find out more about basebands online, with the iPhone Dev Team's 'Baseband 101' guide. ®
