Unlocking an Unused iPhone 16GB 3G

Jul 24, 2007
Hey All,

Sorry in advance if this has been posted before - but I have two 16GB iPhone 3G's... and my question is can they both be unlocked and jailbroken despite the fact that they are not active anymore? I have the 3GS now that's why. I have a friend interested in buying the phone but he wants it unlocked.

Thanks! :cool:

Also, They are both running Firmware 2.2.1 - Should I updated it to 3.0 then unlock/jailbreak? Please post on how if you can if it's not too much to ask. thanks!

Ultrasn0w for iPhone 3G is ready!

  1. Ensure you have upgraded to iPhone OS 3.0
  2. Jailbreak your iPhone 3G using redsn0w or PwnageTool (this will also install Cydia/Icy)
  3. Run Cydia or Icy
  4. Please add the repo repo666.ultrasn0w.com to Cydia or Icy. That last “o” is actually the number zero “0”! If you use the letter “o” you’ll get an error.
  5. Search for ‘ultrasn0w’ in cydia or icy and install ultrasn0w
  6. Reboot your iPhone 3G
  7. T-Mobile USA users should disable 3G before using ultrasn0w
  8. Enjoy
