How to Unlock the iPhone 3GS Using PurpleSn0w


These are instructions on how to unlock the iPhone 3GS for use with any GSM cellphone carrier using PurpleSn0w. Geohot has posted stating that the purplesn0w unlock should improve issues with wifi, battery, and the unlock itself. If you would prefer to use the iPhone Dev-Teams UltraSn0w unlock you can find those instructions here

Before you can follow these instructions you must have a jailbroken iPhone and you must be on the 04.26.08 baseband(modem firmware). This means that you must be running the 3.0 firmware and have used PwnageTool, RedSn0w, or PurpleRa1n to jailbreak. YOU MUST ALSO (FOR THE TIME BEING) HAVE ACTIVATED YOUR IPHONE WITH AN OFFICIAL APPLE CARRIER. NO HACTIVATION SUPPORT YET.

To find your firmware and modem firmware(baseband) versions you can follow this tutorial. If you are not on baseband version 04.26.08 then you need to follow one of these tutorials before unlocking: MacWindows

If you are on T-Mobile or any carrier without 3G remember to turn it off before starting...
