Apple can abandon any idea that its iPhone 3G is safe, says TechGuru (Google translation).
Breno MacMasi and Paulo Stool, owners of Desbloqueiobr, had the full iPhone 3G (2.0) open within a mere 24 hours, it says.
And it was unlocked exactly like the original iPhone by, “using a special card that piggybacks to your SIM card, fooling the phone into thinking it’s using an official carrier,” according to Gizmodo.
The method, “forges the International Mobile Subscriber Identity, making the phone believe it’s working in the network in which it’s supposed to work,”ays the post, adding:
“There’s no word yet on the availability of this hack ….”
