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

By Sébastien Page on Apr 19, 2011

Yay, we got a jailbreak for iOS 4.3.2! Ok, but what’s up with the unlock? My guess is that the Dev Team is working on updating PwnageTool for 4.3.2 compatibility. When they release PwnageTool, most likely in the coming days, they will also update their UltraSn0w unlock.

Those of you who have updated to 4.3.2 while preserving their basebands using Sn0wBreeze or PwnageTool bundles are out of luck because the official version of UltraSn0w is not compatible with 4.3.2 yet… Read More

As expected the Dev Team released tonight an updated version of their UltraSn0w unlock for iPhone 4.3.1. As we noted before, this version of UltraSn0w will not unlock any new baseband.

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

By Jeff Benjamin on Feb 27, 2011

If you’ve been using an iPhone 4 on basebands 3.10.01 or 2.10.04, your inability to unlock has undoubtedly been an issue of great concern.

Time and time again, we get our hopes up, only to come away disappointed.

Let’s give Apple credit, they’ve done a decent job with keeping these basebands locked down for a significant amount of time, but the gates could be breached in the very near future…

iPhone 3G on BaseBand 06.15.00 Unlocked for Life

By Cody Lee on Jan 17, 2011


It’s official. If you have an iPhone 3G on baseband 06.15.00 and you are unlocked , you better get comfortable. MuscleNerd confirmed in a recent tweet that since the iPhone 3G will not be receiving the 4.3 firmware upgrade, your iPhone 3G will remain unlocked indefinitely.

Now let’s not all panic, this only affects iPhone 3G users on the above mentioned baseband. If you are unsure of your baseband version, you can go to settings -> general -> about -> modem firmware.  For most of us this isn’t a huge deal, but to iPhone 3G users who unlocked using the 06.15 UltraSnow unlock, and have been experiencing GPS issues, this is devastating… Read More
