I just read in the MMI forums that an iPhone hacker going by the name of msft.guy has put together a new package for BlackSn0w to work on iPhone 3.1.3 with baseband 05.11.07. It also appears that this “update” to BlackSn0w fixes the bug that causes issues with WiFi.
Apparently this has been tested by several people and it works flawlessly on both iPhone 3G and 3GS. But will it be released? According to the MMI post,
It appears that msft.guy has no intention of publicly releasing the fix and GeoHot is nowhere to be found to comment on the issue.
I personally don’t think GeoHot cares much about this at all. At this point, I actually don’t think anyone cares at all about this BlackSn0w unlock. Whoever “accidentally” upgraded their iPhone to 3.1.3 is now stuck on the newer 05.12.07 baseband, for which there is still no unlock. What’s really needed now is a jailbreak/unlock for OTB iPhone 3.1.3.
