Unlock iPhone 4.0 Beta OS with Ultrasn0w [How To]

This post is about unlocking iPhone 3G on latest iPhone 4.0 OS Beta. The hindrance to unlock 4.0 OS was that it upgrades baseband to 05.13.03 and currently no unlock tool is available for latest baseband, but updated version of FuzzyBand tool has been released to downgrade 05.13.03 baseband of iPhone OS 4 to 04.26.08 so we can use ultrasn0w later to unlock it. Please note that the tools is for older bootloader 05.08 (5.8) and it will work on iPhone 3G only.
