iPhone 3G software unlock set for 31 December

Apple may have curtailed the jailbreaking joy on their own OSX platform, but that hasn't stopped the iPhone Dev Team, behind major hacks of the Jesus

Previously, fully unlocking the second gen iPhone has proved difficult, but the new hack is currently being put into an easy–to–use package, which the team says will be easy to install onto your Apple blower.

Naturally though, there are issues. It will only work on the 2.11.07 baseband. Apple's latest update has changed that, so if you've bumped your phone or plan on buying a new one, it looks like you'll have to wait.

Obviously, this will break your iPhone warranty, and as we've already seen today, Apple is more than adept at fighting back. Will you be unlocking your iPhone 3G? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
