Blacksn0w RC2 to Unlock iOS 4 Released – [The Full Guide]

Blacksn0w RC2 has just Released for iOS 4, this release is based on the original unlock tool from geohot, and the binaries which were released from couple days by MSFT GUY for 05.11.07 baseband on iPhone 3GS, running iOS 4.0 GM. Follow the step by step guide After the jump..

Here’s the description mention in the site:

Use on Modem Firmware 05.11.07 ONLY!
V1.2: Support for 4.0 GM. Backwards compatible to 3.1.2/3 as well. V1.1: MyWi tethering fix
Geohot’s unlock for 3.1.2/3.1.3/4.0GM on the iPhone 3GS (and probably 3G). Please donate at if you enjoy.
With 3.1.3 & 4.0 GM patch (when needed) by msft.guy. Packaged by
This is an unofficial release but Geohot HAS given me permission to redistribute blacksn0w. All known issues with WiFi loss and boot loops seem to be fixed.  If it doesn’t work for some reason, you should still get the SpringBoard. This allows you to uninstall if necessary. It is a little slower to boot because of the increased safety of the release. A 3GS boots to cell connection established in about 90 seconds in iOS 4 now (50% slower than 3.1.X).
Improvements may be made in the future.
