iPhone 2.0 Unlocked Before The Release

A renegade group of developers called “iPhone Dev Team” claimed they cracked Apple’s not-yet available iPhone 2.0 software.

The iPhone Dev Team claims to have cracked the software, meaning yet more pressure on Apple Inc. in the cat and mouse game between software developers and the owners of a million unlocked iPhones and the company and its network partners. They also say they have decrypted and have jailbroken the new iPhone software, and have published a series of screenshots of third-party applications running on the device. The jailbreak currently works only with hacked activation, meaning it won’t work with AT&T iPhones yet.

Apple executives have characterized the buoyant global market in unlocked iPhones as a positive thing, suggesting strong pent-up demand for the product, which is as yet available in just four markets: U.S., U.K., Germany and France.
