Video: Dev Team Really Really Close To iPhone 3G Unlock
Some very good news from the Dev Team earlier today: they now have persistent nucleus tasks running on an iPhone 3G. What does this mean, you ask? Well, if you’re looking for a technical explanation, it means they can now spawn background tasks. If you’re a normal person, you just need to know that this means they are very, very close to a software unlock for the iPhone 3G. They no longer have any foreseeable obstacles. Very good news indeed. Video after the break.

A list of their accomplishments thus far:
- Unsigned code execution on 3G baseband
- Reverting 01.45 baseband to previous versions
- Patching of static text (the AT&V demo)
- Injection of AT routines (the task list demo)
- Injection of background tasks
Now it’s on to overriding the baseband code that enforces the carrier lock.
Rock on, Dev Team!
