Low and behold, the Dev Team has quickly responded to the latest 2.2 firmware update released just a few hours ago. Here’s what they had to say (we were predicting the following anyways right?) about the latest firmware update in conjunction with the upcoming 3G software unlock:
We can confirm that this update SHOULD NOT be applied if you want the chance of a soft-unlock in the near future.
Some facts –
* The 2.2 firmware for 3G contains a baseband updater for the 3G iPhone
* The 2.2 firmware for 2G (1st gen iPhones) doesn’t contain a baseband update and is still at 04.05.04
* We believe that our Pwnage technique (and therefore the Jailbreak) isn’t affected, but PwnageTool and QuickPwn do not support this release as yet, so don’t install if you have third-party (non AppStore) applications that you want to use right now
* We are not working on the 2nd generation iPod touch at the moment, so we cannot comment on what applying the 2.2 software update for this model may do.
So, as always, if in any doubt delay the install of this firmware on any of your devices until we have investigated the release in more detail. Watch this space 😉
There you have it. Just be patient and hold off on updating to 2.2 firmware if this matters to you at all. As you were, fine folks!
