Update (06/13/2010) : Here is a much easier way – Unlock iPhone 3GS running iOS 4 GM using BlackSn0w (Easy Way)
Update (06/10/2010) : Added one more method, to get this ported blacksn0w working at the bottom of the Post.
Recently, we have mentioned & provided you evidence that blacksn0w is ported to iOS4 Beta. The man behind this is the same person who created the blacksn0w for 3.1.3 baseband 05.11.07 & iPhone3GS_iOS4GM_Bungle to help you Jailbreak iPhone 3GS. The original BlackSn0w was created by GeoHot for iDevice running 3.1.2 baseband 05.11.07. Now, msftguy have gone a step up and ported blacksn0w to iPhone 3GS running iOS4 GM with baseband 05.11.07.
This is not has been tested and its working. But, source mentioned that its working and its a bit buggy. Each time you reboot, you will have to reapply the patch files. So, try this only if you are comfortable doing it. Remember, a unlock tool will be released soon (End of June or Early July)

Step 1: Download the blacksn0w4GM
Step 2: Download NetaTalk & Open SSH on your iPhone via Cydia Store (Just search for it) / Download Cyberduck on your Mac / Download WinSCP on your Windows – In this tutorial I am using NetaTalk. If you use CyberDuck or WinSCP the steps will be the same from Step 6
Step 3: Once NetaTalk is installed, reboot your iPhone & relaunch your Finder.
Step 4: In your finder, you will notice your iPhone in under Shared Devices on your left hand side.
Step 5: Select it & click on Connect on the right corner of the Windows.
Step 6: Here enter the user name & password (By default the user name is root & password is apline)
Step 7: Once get accessed, navigate to the following folder (In your iPhoen)
Step 8: Look for the file name com.apple.CommCenter.plist and rename it as com.apple.CommCenter.plist.back and leave it open
Step 9: Now, extract the Downloaded blacksn0w4GM
Step 10: From blacksn0w4GM/bin move the com.apple.CommCenter.plist to the navigated folder that we have left it open at Step 8
Step 11: Now, Navigate to the following folder (in your iPhone) and leave it Open
Step 12: Now, go back to the downloaded blacksn0w4GM folder and move the blacksn0w.dylib to the folder that we have left it Open at Step 11
Update (06/10/2010): If for some reason the above step didn’t work for you. Then follow the steps provided by Kev Meredith.
Step 1: Follow the same steps as above till Step 6
Step 2: On the iPhone leave the com.apple.Commcenter.plist (Dont move it anywhere. Just leave it where it is)
Step 3: Now, Copy both files from Blacksnow4GM/bin into /bin on the iPhone
Step 4: Now, Navigate to the following folder (in your iPhone) and leave it Open
Step 5: Now, go back to the downloaded blacksn0w4GM folder and move the blacksn0w.dylib to the folder that we have left it Open at Step 4
Step 6: SSH into the iPhone using Terminal(for example if your WiFi IP address on your iPhone is 10.0.1.3. Then type the following)
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org and hit enter
Step 7: You will be asked to enter password. By default your password will be “alpine”
Step 8: Now, you need to type the following and hit enter
Note: You would need to run this script, if the iPhone is rebooted. (You would need to follow from Step 6 to Step 8)
