Heads up, developers: The iPhone Dev Team announced this weekend that Redsn0w 0.9.6b3 is now available. The update supports iOS 4.2.1 and will allow developers to bypass Cydia, which was broken in 4.2.1.
We don't have confirmation on this beyond the word of a Czech-based developer who has tested it, but apparently Apple is blocking push notification services in unofficially unlocked iPhones. However, we have tested it and it works.
The iPhone Dev Team, jailbreakers of all things iPhone, have released a demonstration video of a version of yellowsn0w they dub "ultrasn0w" that purportedly unlocks every version of the iPhone running everything from 3.0 on down the line.
The iPhone Dev Team has got us excited (and Apple worried) by announcing they have a fully-working software carrier unlock ready for the 3.0 firmware ahead of its official release.
The iPhone 3G unlock is now available. The unlocking software is called yellowsn0w, runs as an invisible application, and it's very easy to install. Here's how. Updated 3: Now works for me with 0.9.4.
The international team of code-monkeying playboys known as the iPhone Dev Team gave a talk at the Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin recently, where they presented a comprehensive history of iPhone hacking to date.

As you may remember from the first-generation iPhone unlock, this is big news because it means they have access to the core of the system, which gives them the ability to…
Using QuickPWN for Windows, you can now follow about 13 not-too-tough steps to be on the leading edge of the iPod touch 2.1 jailbreak curve, if that's your thing. There is a good chance that iTunes 8 won't recognize it though, since it can now detect custom firmwares. So if you've upgraded to 8 you might want to think…
Since they can't avoid hacked iPhones no matter how hard they try, Apple seems to have prepared iTunes 8 to avoid pwning, disabling this ability in mint iPod touch and iPhone devices. But don't fret, because the iPhone Dev Team has already launched a counterattack:
If you want to upload to the latest 2.0.2 version of the iPhone operating system, and you have a PC, check out the new QuickPwn for Windows, which now supports it. Yippee Kai Yay and all that. Mac users, hold on because they are working on the Mac version too. Until then, you can always use Pwnage. [iPhone Dev]
