iPhone hacked for use in Australia?

Sponsored link

iphone-aus.jpgAussie hackers have somehow managed to get an iPhone working on Australia’s Telstra mobile network, by “modifying the iPhone’s default SIM card to be recognized as an AT&T SIM, while actually containing data that allows it to be accepted by Telstra.”

We’ve yet to see actual proof of this (apparently there was a video that has since been taken down), but the preliminary results sound enticing.

CommonGate: The hack is made possible through the use of iActivator, a Mac OS X program that provides an interface for activating/deactivating your iPhone without invoking an AT&T contract or prepaid plan. The program doesn’t unlock the iPhone’s SIM, but simply unlocks the functionality of the iPhone so that an AT&T-based activation is not necessary. The tool also has the option to perform a “Jailbreak” on the iPhone, which allows files to be written to the device’s filesystem.
