UltraSn0w iPhone Unlock for iOS 5 to Be Released Tomorrow

By , Oct 13, 2011

Speaking of unlocking the iPhone, MuscleNerd just confirmed that an iOS 5 compatibility update to the unlock tool will be released tomorrow, after the planned MobileSubstrate update.

Of course, UltraSn0w will only work for 01.59.00, 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04, and 06.15.00 basebands. If your baseband is different from these, you will not be able to use UltraSn0w to unlock until the Team figures out a new exploit, which may take a while…

In order to use UltraSn0w for iOS 5, you will first need to upgrade to iOS 5 while preserving the baseband. This can be done using the latest version of RedSn0w — see our detailed RedSn0w tutorial.

Once you are on iOS 5 with a preserved baseband, you’ll simply need to install UltraSn0w from Cydia.

As usual, we’ll let you know as soon as UltraSn0w is updated. Stay tuned!

    • Jeff

      Just restore it then update to iOS5. Then Jailbreak it. When I had trouble after the restore I put it in DFU mode and then did a restore from there. Something like that it’s been a while. But just get it restored

        Also download PkgBackup from Cydia, plus if you want to reinstall your music the easy way. Add to playlist for every song you put in your iDEVICE. Example: right click the song ButtNinja, than click add to daDDy playlist. that way after restoring all do is drag the daDDy playlist to your iDEVICE and all your song are back Quick and Easy. I been doing it this way for years.

  • Francesco

    • Vitica7

      Its not for 4s… Read the article again!

      • Francesco

        I KNW I MEANT JUST IN TIME WHEN THE IPHONE 4s comes out

  • Diddyo

    Nice, I updated to early and soon discovered ultrasn0w wasn’t working. Glad the fix is coming really soon.

  • Francesco

    This is also effed up cz. Most ppl upgraded to uos 5 too early to look at the new features and didn’t knw

    • Alex

      Is it the Dev Team’s fault because some people decided to get a bit careless?

      • Francesco

        No… they are just doing their fun games to help us …. and everything for free …

      • Francesco

        noo its not their fault they can release when they feel like it but they warn you abt it and it you don’t listen ur screwed

      • http://twitter.com/stonedinny Stonedinny

        Yeah really. I don’t care what kind of update it is, unless the devteam says theres a untethered jailbreak and unlock i’ll never update just to “see new features” thats what youtube and google is for.

  • Pratik

    Isn’t this jailbreak tethered? Yu shud warn ppl abt that in this post?

    • Tyler Hauser

      This DOESN’T jailbreak your device.

      • Tyler Hauser

        Sorry, wrong post. :-\

  • Jeff

    It doesn’t really matter. How many times does anyone restart there iPhone. I mean really like never. And if so your phone still works. Just doesn’t have the extra apps and tweaks. Plug back into your mac and 30 seconds later its back to normal. Nothing hard or complicated. Especially if your jail breaking cause jail breaking can be a pain lol.

  • ITaY

    What about untherthed jailbreak ?

  • MALdito

    …”until the Team figures out a new exploit, which may take a while”, it has already been a while, dont you mean “until the Team figures out a new exploit, which would be never”.

    • Amo

      Exactly!!!

  • Amo

    Can we unlock the phone on iOS 5 with Gevey??

  • MALdito

    “…until the Team figures out a new exploit, which may take a while”, it has already been a while, dont you mean “until the Team figures out a new exploit, which would be never”.

    • MALdito

  • AMB

    You know, i’d be interested to know if there has been any progress to unlock on newer basebands. The last time they did something about it was a year ago and then there was a failed experiment.

    Hopefully they held something back for ios5 and iphone 4s. Id love to software unlock my iphone 4

  • @besmartenough

    hello!
    I installed the custom ios5, on my 3gs with 6.15.00 baseband, redsn0w and then by cydia I installed ultasn0w to unlock but now ios5 can’t find my carrier. :(

    previously activate with my dits sim card, who had worked in iOS4…

  • rottenblood

  • Nyange

    Remember, the jailbreak was only for already unlocked Baseband, anything else other than that, should wait, its hurts but i havr to hold on to my IOS 4.3.3 for now. u should too

  • rottenblood

    bt bb 6.15.00 it was unlocked on my previous ios 4.1

  • rottenblood

    now works! :) I re-flash my iPad baseband again with redsn0w 0.9.9b6 and and now ios5 find my network. but I still have network problem (unstable) if I use Location Services in ios5. although this version has been done to correct it.

    i have an iPhone 3Gs
    old bootrom
    currently on 4.2.1 bb 6.15.00

  • http://twitter.com/madskilz1969 Jason Kirkhorn

    I recently took the plunge with my 3GS (newer bootrom) and updated my baseband (05.15.04) to 06.15.00.

    After completing the process and installing UltraSn0w, I could make calls but with poor reception and I was told there was a humming noise when on a call by the people I was calling.

    Soon after I lost all reception. ‘No Service’, I still have WiFi and GPS.

    I just upgraded to 5.0.1 and re-flashed the baseband, just to be sure, and re-installed UltraSn0w 1.2.4

    I am still getting ‘No Service’ and there are no “Cellular Data Settings” for MMS or Data, and carrier say “not available” under About.

    It’s like UltraSn0w is not working at all.

    I have re-installed, re-flashed, and re-loaded multiple times.

    I have seen several posts about this, with few resolutions other than try, try, try again,

    Does anyone have an additional insight or success stories that they could share?

    • sahar el rabaa

      i have the same problem please if u found any solution share it as am tired of this and some times its works in certain places and it loses serves in other places :s

    i have i phone 4 version 5 unlock what can i do to make my iphone work again

    i need help

  • http://twitter.com/tweenkstar aurora

    hi I carelessly updated my itunes to 10.5 thus my iphone was updated also into ios5 with a firmware 4.11.08. Bad news is i didn’t preserve my baseband, thus resulting to “sim invalid”. Another thing is my phone is unlocked, so i used gevey sim. I try to jailbreak it again but same thing happened “sim card invalid”. I try iFaith to have my customed firmware since i did not preserve my baseband. But couldn’t push through b’coz pop op error “1600/ 1601″ appears. Now I am stuck. Definitely needs help. T.T… Any suggestions?.. Thanks.
