Yesterday GeoHot gave us a quick sneak peek at BlackSn0w and told us BlackSn0w would be bundled into BlackRa1n RC3, due to be released on November 4th.

Good news came earlier today from GeoHot when he wrote in a blog post that Sn0wDay was coming one day ahead of schedule.

At Noon EST, 5 PM GMT, I will be making it sn0w, and I’m looking to see “#blacksn0w” trending. blacksn0w is the unlock for the latest 05.11.07 baseband, and will also enable official tethering. blackra1n, a jailbreak for 3.1.2, has been updated to RC3, with hacktivation support, 15 second speed improvement, Tiger+PPC support, and installation of the latest

Here is what’s important to note:

  • BlackSn0w will unlock baseband 05.11.07
  • BlackSn0w will enable tethering

UPDATE: BlackRa1n RC3 and BlackSn0w tutorials are up:

    Smooth as a whistle. Just unlocked 4 iPhones with 3.1.2 (1 may have had 3.1) that were previously jailbroken with blackra1n. 3 went without a hitch, one hung at the sn0w installer, but rerunning it did the trick. Don’t have T-mobile to test with, but assuming they work, this was quite easy.
