  • ultrasn0w 1.2 Out - Unlocks "Stuck" iPhone 3G/3GS


    The DevTeam has released ultrasn0w 1.2 - with a clever feature for those of you who've had an iPhone 3G or 3G[S] with a baseband later than 05.13.04.

    It turns out that the very first iPad firmware 3.2.2 has baseband version 06.15.00 still vulnerable to AT+XAPP. The iPad baseband is built for the exact same baseband chip as the iPhone3G/3GS — they’re fully compatible!
    For many iPhone 3G and iPhone 3G[S] users, you've been stuck at baseband 05.14 or 05.15 and unable to unlock because there is no carrier unlock available for those basebands on those phones. The Dev Team found the iPad baseband is actually a *higher* version number, but it STILL VULNERABLE to the ultrasn0w unlock exploit, as well as being FULLY COMPATIBLE with the iPhone 3G and 3G[S].

    Meaning?

    If - AND ONLY IF - you've got either of those devices (3G/3G[S]) and NEED an unlock but can't because your baseband is 05.14 or 05.15... you can now upgrade your baseband to the iPad one (06.15) and use ultrasn0w to unlock. This should NOT be done unless you absolutely need to. Here's the full warning posted by the Dev Team as to why:

    WARNING — YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF UPDATING TO 06.15.
    • There is no way to come back down from 06.15, and there’s no hiding the baseband version from Apple. You’ll be voiding your warranty in a very obvious way.[/B]
    • If some future baseband comes out with a critical fix, you won’t be able to update to it if it remains down in the 05.xx sequence (then again, you wouldn’t update to it if you wanted to keep your unlock anyway).
    • Starting with FW 4.2.1 if you have 06.15 on your iPhone you won’t ever be able to restore to stock firmware (it will fail). You’ll need to only restore to custom IPSWs (then again, if you’re unlocker you should already be doing that).
    Certainly don’t update to 06.15 if you don’t need to! Only do this if you need the unlock and you’re stuck on 05.14 or 05.15, and you’re willing to assume the above risks.
    We'll have a full guide up asap, but they include basic instructions in their blog post detailing how to do so using redsn0w 0.9.6beta5 or Pwnage Tool 4.1.3 Unlock Edition.

    This does NOT unlock the iPhone 4 yet. The Dev Team gave this info:

    The i4 unlock is taking more effort though, and no further concrete info is available about that yet.
    There's a lot of info in that post, so read up, but basically - stuck 3G and 3G[S] users can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

      I too was content/scared to upgrade to 3.1.3 with my new bootrom 3GS but I finally gave in & just used custom 4.1 fW. Still have my 5.12.01 BB and now almost all apps are compatible.

      I would like to upgrade to 4.2/4.2.1 and keep my jailbreak, unlock and baseband. Can someone please point me in the right direction?

      Thank you.
      Can be done as per dev team site but IMHO, for now, I would just go to 4.1 with custom FW. This way you save your 5.12.01 BB and nearly all apps are 4.1 compatible. It takes 10 minutes and rumors are suggesting more fw updates are soon to come anyway.

      Hi, I have an iPhone 3GS which is already jailbroken on iOS 4.1 bb 05.15.04 and was wondering if I would be able to use redsn0w 0.9.6 b5 to just update my baseband only or do I have to restore it and re-jailbreak?

      I dont believe so, you would have to be on 4.1 or 4.2.1. Nothing to stop you from going back to 3.1.3 after though.

      are you browsing to the location you downloaded the fw too?

      This can take a long time since it's being downloaded directly from Apple's servers. Wait... wait... wait.

      Try to unplug the USB cable from the phone and plug it right back in.

      Can anyone here confirm if they are going to try to unlock baseband 05.14.xx or this is it as far as unlocking?
    1. Simon's Avatar

      This is probably it for unlocking 5.14.02 but no one but the dev team know for sure.

      Sucks bro

      Let me ask you...is it possible to "upgrade my BB without needing to upgrade firmware"?

      use NEW redsn0w (currently running 4.1 FW) > browse for 4.1 FW > install ipad baseband?

      Or I definetly will need to update to 4.2.1?

      Thanks,

      No need to restore or update. You have it right for using redsn0w to just update the baseband.

      Nice! I'm still debating wether I want to lose the unthetered jailbreak or just installing the baseband won't change nothing else? cause as of right now I'm jailbreaked thru limera1n

      It shouldn't. I have done it on a few phones without needing to restore.

      I would recommend waiting for a few days to get the kinks out.
      same problem:
      jailbroken, firmware 06.14, unlocked

      but iPhone 3gs old bootrom won't find carrier

      I found a way to solve the "Waiting for reboot." They are 2 ways to solve it, u can unplugged it while it's on "Waiting for reboot." Another way is instead of holding 15 seconds on home, hold it for 30 seconds.

      Try the carrier reset fix in Cydia. Repo: Cydia.pushfix.info It worked for me.
