How to Unlock your iPhone 4.3.3 with UltraSn0w

By Sébastien Page on May 6, 2011

Thanks to the hard work of the iPhone Dev Team, the UltraSn0w unlock for iPhone has been updated to play well with iOS 4.3.3. As mentioned in our previous post about UltraSn0w, this will only work with iPhone 4 baseband 1.59.00, and iPhone 3G/3GS basebands 4.26.08, 5.11.07, 5.12.01, 5.13.04, and 6.15.00.

If your baseband is different from these, then you can’t unlock for the time being. If your baseband matches one of those above but you are on an older firmware, use PwnageTool to update while preserving the baseband.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to unlock your iPhone 4.3.3 using UltraSn0w… Read More

Permanent Unlock CutYourSim Discontinues Service

By Alex Heath on Apr 22, 2011

Last week we told you about a new unlock service called CutYourSim that offered a remote, permanent unlock for the iPhone. Instead of the classic method of jailbreaking and installing UltraSn0w, CutYourSim claimed to permanently unlock your iPhone’s baseband remotely for any GSM carrier.

For $169.99, the folks at CutYourSim would be able to unlock your iPhone’s baseband and keep it unlocked forever. Sounds like a dream come true, right?

The dream didn’t last long. CutYourSim has already announced that it is discontinuing its unlock serviceRead More

More Details About iPhone 4.3.1 Unlock Emerge

By Jeff Benjamin on Apr 3, 2011

Just to preface this before anyone gets the wrong idea; there is still no new baseband unlock available.

Now that the formalities are out of the way, I think it’s safe to tell you that new details have been revealed about the existing baseband unlock and its compatibility with the soon to be released untethered jailbreak for iOS 4.3.1.

Depending on when the jailbreak is actually released, if you rely on an unlock, you may have to wait a while until a new version of UltraSn0w is released. This is due to some compatibility issues between iOS 4.3.1 and the current version of UltraSn0w.

Fortunately, you won’t have to wait long, as the latest tweets from members of the iPhone Dev Team confirm… Read More
