iPhone Dev-Team releases unlock for iPhone 3G and 3Gs

The iPhone Dev-Team has released the iOS 4.2.1 unlock for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.

Please read their announcement very carefully...

-----
Today we’re pleased to announce our free carrier unlock for iPhone3G/3GS owners with a baseband later than 05.13.04. The unlock for that baseband exploited the AT+XAPP command, thanks to a crash initially discovered by @sherif_hashim (@Oranav also found this crash). So what hole are we exploiting today, since Apple closed that AT+XAPP hole? Well, we’re exploiting the exact same hole!

It turns out that the very first iPad firmware 3.2.2 has baseband version 06.15.00 still vulnerable to …
