Just a couple of days after the release of blackra1n RC2 which can jailbreak iPhone 3.1.2, GeoHot is back with yet another major announcement. Geohot has declared on his blog that he will soon be releasing Blacksn0w to unlock iPhone 3.1.2 baseband 05.11.07 on iPhone 3G/3GS running iPhone 3.1.x firmware.
It is a great news for those of you who accidentally upgraded to iPhone 3.1.x firmware from iTunes! He hasn’t given the expected date of release of blacksn0w, but one can expect the release to be coming in another couple of weeks max.
below is a screenshot confirming the progress he has made on 05.11.07 baseband
hello there, this is geohot

We will of course keep you up to date with further developments but things certainly look promising. Keep up the good work Geohot!
