A couple days ago we informed you that the UltraSn0w unlock for iPhone iOS 4.2.1 was supposedly going to drop this Sunday. According to a recent tweet from Dev Team member MuscleNerd, it seems we are on the right track for a release on schedule.

This UltraSn0w unlock for iOS 4.2.1 will work with the iPhone 3G and 3GS. It will not work with the iPhone 4 yet, but it’s being worked on…

A few weeks ago, the Dev Team had claimed that UltraSn0w would be available shortly after the release of iOS 4.2.1, but there was a slight plan change because it needed some unexpected updating.

UPDATE: UltraSn0w unlock for iOS 4.2.1 is available. Click the link for more details.

    Not sure if anyone has programed their Satellite receiver before but when the codes changed, you would have to wait. Yea, waiting sucked but you knew when a fix came out, it was good. Same thing here. Patients is not my strong suite either but its a necessity to have some at least. Otherwise you end up beating your head against a wall and giving yourself stress. Chill ppl!! Even if it is another week, it would be better than loading something that will give you even more troubles. Dev more than likely is trying their best for us all and will not release a faulty update. Can you blame them? Already taking slack from many who are soooooooo selfish…lol

  • LELO!

    ATTENTION:

    By recent updates (TWITTER)
    The unlock wouldn’t be released TODAY.
    All of us will have to wait some more time…

    :S

  • John

    @Eazy well said 🙂

  • Carter

    Let’s go Dev team let’s go. I have faith and patience in you guys. I don’t care if I have to continue using this slow ass iPhone one because I know for sure the Dev team is going to have my iPhone 4 up and running again. Everything takes time so y’all need to ease up all tge fussing isn’t going to make the update come any faster

  • jim

    NONE of the twitter pages say it will be delayed…must be releasing today

  • forgotmywatch

    Fat finger trade by MuscleNerd???
    Quote: “Good progress today…everything is on track for updated ultrasn0w by Sunday/Funday at the latest (longer for iPhone4!)”

  • jim

    what the fuck it said it was gonna release at 2am…and theres no word on it???

  • Eazy $

    It’s early in the day everyone. The update is probably all ready and packed to be distributed, but mind you, There’s a lot of coordination and planning that goes into releasing something this important. I’m on 4.1 with 5.14.02 BB, so I’m just as eager to unlock my phone like everyone else. Don’t let these false accusations overwhelm you. I’d bet my money that we’re all elated by the end of the day. Go watch some football, and check back in a couple hours. It’s definitely not gonna drop at some random time this afternoon. Probably doing last minute tests to make sure everything is kosher. Thanks Dev-Team, specifically MuscleNerd for keeping us posted. Besides, if they said a certain time, then everyone would try and update at the same time, which would overload their servers. Have patience, or put some duct tape over your mouth til the update comes out.

  • jim

    but muscle nerd has not kept us updated….

  • forgotmywatch

    Found my watch… Thanks MuscleNerd & Dev Team

  • beanzy

    I’m sure that dev team has more important things to do than to keep us updated. Even if they updated saying it is delayed, many will start saying crap about it so why update? Patients is a virtue!!! lol

  • Chris

    I’ve just had an update on ultrasn0w for version 1.2 but it still hasn’t got baseband 05.14.02

  • Trista

U cant jailbreak on that high bb. Explain to me if im wrong. PLZ HELP wat to i do so i can still jailbreak. I have a iphone 3gs fw 4.1 bb 5.14.02 and its already jailbroken

  • jon

  • Even

    Ultrasn0w 1.2 Is out an igot it. Put my SIM card in and all it says is searching… I’m on an iPhone 3g 4.1 firmware 5.14.02 baseband, why isn’t it working?

  • Gemini

    Jailbreak using the new redsn0w and update iTunes. U have to take apples new fw. 4.2.1. So just let the new iTunes update ur device then jb using the new redsn0w then install ultrasn0w. I just downloaded the new redsn0w and I’m updating my iTunes …I’ll keep every1 posted!

    • Bob

      where did you download new redsn0w

      • Gemini

        Don’t remember exactly where but I googled it …just google redsn0w 0.9.6.

  • Gemini

    U have to upgrade ur baseband if ur stuck on the 5.14 one so every one on iOS 4.1 needs to upgrade their fw to 4.2.1.

  • Even

    I have to jailbreak with new redsn0w and then update firmware to 4.2 and then use ultrasn0w for unlock?

  • Gemini

    Update, jb then unlock.

  • Marchel

    Unlock is working perfect

    Thanx

  • Trista

    Yes! Just got my phone unlocked..
    thanks to dev-team!

    • MIM

      could you please give me steps to unlock 3Gs 4.1 5.14.02 and places where to download needed stuff

  • beanzy

    Hey Marchel and Trista, did you use redsn0w or other jb?

  • Trista

    i’m on mac… so i used PwnageTool

  • total

    i updated my 3G to 4.2.1 via itunes by mistake.
    now i’m stuck on the slide for emergency screen.
    how do i unlock my phone agaiN?

  • Gemini

    Yaaayyyyyy!!! It worked! No more waiting! 🙂

    • carter

      hey how are you. i was wondering how you got yours unlocked? i updated my software to 4.2 but the baseband is 5.15. what should i do

      • MIM

        you are screwed if you updated through itunes

      • Gemini

        There’s an option on redsn0w to use ipad baseband make sure u chose that option because that’s what’s going to allow u to unlock later.

  • beanzy

    did you use redsn0w Gemini? I get the waiting to reboot screen and stays in dfu mode. Then tried again and it got to as far as downloading jailbreak data then crashes. Wonder what is up?

  • Eazy $

    They’re releasing an updated version of redsn0w. DO NOT update to 4.2 using stock Apple firmware. It says you need to upgrade baseband to 6.13 via the Pwnage Bundle or wait for updated redsn0w, which will also make a custom 4.2.1 ipsw, while utilizing the upgraded BB in the same procedure, so that you have an unlockable BB with the custom 4.2 ipsw that is jailbroken. Done and done. Can’t downgrade BB, but it’ll be unlockable anyways. Don’t screw yourself by updating to stock Apple FW!!! You’ll hate yourself for months until they release new firmware and the methods for unlocking it then. Be careful, and if you’re unsure, wait a day or 2 to try any of these methods. Wait for all the impatient idiots to post their disaster stories, so you know what NOT to do. Check all the other unlocking and jb sites to make 100% positive you know what you’re doing. Trust me, seriously trust me, 1 mistake can mean months of agony & not being able to use your iPhone.

  • beanzy

    fianally got redsn0w to work. Installed cydia completely and install ultrasn0w. Went perfectly. Now I insert mi sim and it says searching. Then I went into settings and sellected airplane mode then back but it still keeps searching. Any ideas?

    • Jen

      How did u get redsn0w working? I keep getting stuck waiting for it to reboot!

      • beanzy

        Took several tries and finally went through but still cannot make calls as it does not see my sim card with simplemobile

  • Bob

    but if I have 4.1 and ios upgrade the baseband to 6.15 and then unlock with ultrasn0w, at a later time I update the ios redsn0w 4.2 with PwnageTool or maintaining the same bb?

    thank you very much

  • zay

    I has an iphone 3g 4.2.1 baseband 06:15:00 but I can not unlock because wifi does not work can help me to open it?please help me

    • beanzy

      Why doesn’t your wifi work? You need wifi to complete the unlock. If you cannot connect because you don’t have internet, that a different subject. If you have internet but cannot connect, I had this issue before and had to restore again completely.

      • Jen

        I still haven’t had any luck getting past the waiting to reboot..but beanzy have u tried to reset the network settings? It was a fix for previous no service issues.

  • Jen

    It finally went thru!! I had to close all processes that had to do with apple/iPod/iTunes.

  • beanzy

    Jen, Could you point me towards the previous fix. I don’t know about the fix because I just recently got this Iphone. Any help would be appreciated…. Thanks

  • beanzy

    OK Finally got things working and UNLOCKED Whoooo hoooooo Here’s what I did so that maybe it can help some others having issues, especially with redsn0w crashing on uploading data using Windows PC. I had 3g with fw 4.2.1 and bb 5.15.

    WARNING WARNING WARNING – This process updates your BaseBand to 06.15.00 and you cannot revert back without knowing how to restore with SSH Blobs. For those of you who never want to use ATT and have a cheaper plan that uses a sim card, then your here for the same reason I am. Here ya gooooooooooooooo

    1.) Download 4.2.1 (3G): iPhone1,2_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw (Save to folder)
    2.) Download rensn0w 0.96b5
    3.) Plug in your Iphone and wait for it to be recognized.
    4.) Turn off Iphone
    5.) Open redsn0w and select Cydia and Install iPad baseband
    6.) Next process, follow the screen display putting your Iphone in DFU mode. (This process is a bit tricky but don’t worry, if it goes into recovery mode, you can download recboot to take phone out of recovery mode.)
    7.) Iphone should now be uploading data the you will see a huge pinneapple Icon with a progress bar.
    (Do not unplug or touch phone until it reboots. Can take up to 12-15 minutes, sometimes quicker.)
    8.) Once rebooted, connect to wifi and then go into settings/general/Auto-Lock – Turn off auto-lock for now.
    9.) Exit to main screen with home button. Click Cydia icon and install. Cydia will close after install.
    10.) Click Cydia again and let it load, then click the manage button at bottom and then click sources.
    11.) Under sources, select ultrasn0w then click install top right corner.(If you do not see ultrasn0w, Tap to “Edit” and then “Add” a repository, and then type the following: http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com. Once added, tap install and then confirm.
    12.) Once ultrasn0w is installed, enjoy your favorite carrier.
    13.) Insert your sim card. (If carrier not found after 45 sec, go into settings and select airplane mode, wait 5-6 seconds then click airplane mode again, thus turning airplane mode off.)
    14.) Once carrier is detected, ENJOYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

    Make sure to change your Auto-Lock back to what you want to conserve battery life. ALSO – Do not turn your phone OFF!!!! If you do, your sim will not work and you will have to run redsn0w again and select tethered mode only, then you are back to unlocked.

    If I have missed something here, sorry but thought after seeing so many having issues, it was my contribution back to the community. THANK YOU DEV TEAM You are AWESOMEEEEEE
