Ultran0w fixer has been updated to support iOS 6.0.1 unlock. After upgrading to custom iOS 6.0.1 firmware on iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, the user can unlock iOS 6.0.1 with this Ultrasnow fixer. Before following this unlock guide, make it sure the custom iOS 6.0.1 has preserved baseband otherwise you can lose the unlock.
Finally the wait is over. Now we can successfully downgrade the iPad 06.15 baseband to normal 05.13.04 baseband on iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS using the latest Redsn0w 0.9.14 b1. As usual Redsn0w 0.9.14 b1 is available for download on both Mac OS X and Windows platforms.
The official Ultrasnow 1.2.7 update is finally here to unlock iOS 5.1.1 on iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS. As usual this update of Ultrasn0w doesn’t include the support for any baseband. It will work on already unlockable basebands only.
As we have untethered iOS 5.1.1 jailbreak now, we can safely upgrade our iPhone 4 GSM and iPhone 3GS to iOS 5.1.1 and then unlock it using this method. This guide requires two tools, one is called Sn0wbreeze and another is Ultrasn0w. However, ultrasn0w is not updated yet to support iOS 5.1.1. For this purpose we will use an Ultrasn0w fixer.
Many users have already unlocked their iPhone devices while using the trick found in SAM (subscriber artificial module). Sam Bingner, the developer behind SAM unlock tool, has released a new version which shortens the whole unlock process. This version doesn’t add any new feature or any special support for those users who are not getting the unlock; in fact, new version of SAM removes some activation issues and makes the iPhone iOS 5.1 / 5.0.1 / 5.0 unlock process simpler and easier.
Yesterday Loktar Sun found a trick, while experimenting with SAM (subscriber artificial module), which allowed him to unlock iPhone running on iOS 5+. You can also backup the activation tickets of unlocked iPhone for future use. These activation tickets will be required to re-unlock your device after you restore a fresh iOS firmware on your device.
Kudos to hackers and researchers! They have found a new method to unlock any iPhone, whether it is iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, or iPhone 3GS, running on iOS 5.0, iOS 5.0.1 or iOS 5.1, even having the baseband 0.4.11.08. This new method involves the use of SAM which is exclusively available through Cydia Store. So, this technique will work only on JAILBROKEN iPhone.
AT&T is already unlocking the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 3GS devices officially. Unlocking is performed to free the device from any network restrictions. After the device is successfully unlocked, one can use the SIM card of any carrier around the globe.
One of iPhone Dev Team posted a new article on their blog suggesting the current jailbreakers not to update the iOS 5 devices to today’s anticipated iOS 5.1. The team member wrote in the post that the jailbreakers might lose the jailbreak ability once they updated their modern idevices esp iPhone 4S and iPad 2 to iOS 5.1.
Ultrasn0w 1.2.3, along with Pwnagetool 4.3.3 and Redsn0w 0.9.6rc15, is available from now to unlock iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS running on custom iOS 4.3.3. Ultrasn0w 1.2.3 does not support any new baseband but it provides solution to all those users who are still on unlockable baseband to update their devices to iOS 4.3.3 in which many bugs, esp location tracking issue, are fixed.
In addition to PwnageTool 4.3.2, today iPhone Dev Team also released Ultrasnow 1.2.2. Ultrasnow 1.2.2 can unlock up to iOS 4.3.2 provided you are already on unlockable baseband. If you are still running any older iOS version, you can now safely update your device to iOS 4.3.2 while preserving the baseband and unlock it using Ultrasn0w 1.2.2.
Last week we reported that many websites were offering IMEI based iPhone unlocking service. They did so by entering the IMEI number of locked iPhone into the “whitelist” of Apple’s database. Though it is still unclear what route they adopted but it is sure they had access to that particular database.
According to CultofMac:
Many websites, which have been selling unlock for other devices in past, are now offering permanent unlock solution for iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS. They use the IMEI number of iPhone and unlock the device remotely without installing any software on the device.
Ultrasnow 1.2.1 is out now. The main purpose of this update is to support iOS 4.3.1 and fix the signal bar issue on iPhone 4. It is to inform you that this update is for current unlockers only i.e., for those users who are still on unlockable baseband.
