F0recast is a new tool by iH8Sn0w (the developer of sn0wbreeze) that I think is going to be of tremendous help to many jailbreakers and unlockers out there.

It’s become quite complicated to follow up with the jailbreaking and downgrading requirements lately and many people just can’t figure out whether they can jailbreak, unlock, downgrade or not. That’s where F0recast comes in.

f0recast is a tool for Windows® that will check your iPods and iPhones to determine whether it is tethered, or unlockable (iPhone Only).

It is just a real simple app for users who are confused about their device being tethered or able to unlock.

It even tells iPhone user’s their Boot loader, so if you are an iPhone 3G user with the 5.8 Bootloader, it will notify you that you can downgrade your baseband if you wish to unlock.

So basically, F0recast will tell you:

  • if you can have an untethered jailbreak or not
  • if you can unlock or not and what tool you can use to unlock
  • if you can downgrade or not
