  • 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.

      After you select the iphone 3g ipsw and then say yes to the update baseband you need to point pwnage to the ipad 3.2.2 firmware.

      Very risky business
      I upgraded my 3Gs to 4.1 (was on 4.02 and old bb but could not jailbreak) and the new bb. Had I known that the new ultras0w requires to update to 6.15 I would have stayed on 4.02 and waited for an upgrade to 4.1 that preserves the old bb, like with my iPhone 4.

      This is "very risky business" indeed!

      I have baseband 05.13.04 on a 3G firmware 4.1. What do I need to do to unlock? I see all this stuff for higher basebands, but I don't see anything for people like me who were careful to preserve their baseband for this update.

      I haven't had any successful attempt. Anyone can check whether i'm doing it right or not?

      1) I press option+click on restore and chose 4.2.1 firmware
      2) Jail break using Pwnage tool 4.1.3
      3) I click NO to update baseband
      4) Build 4.2.1 custom firmware
      5) I tick on everything that i am suppose to except that i can't tick on "upgrade baseband".
      6) DFU mode.. etc etc.. done..
      7) Open itunes 10.1 and press option+click restore and chose my custom firmware.
      8) open pwnage tool again and this time click on YES onto update baseband.
      9) select custom firware... it says "wrong firmware bundle". same thing happen when i click on the firmware that i have downloaded.

      are my steps correct? any video tutorial for pwnagetool?

      or...i'm suppose to install ipad firmware instead of iphone 3G firmware? am i correct?

      Yes you can, i did this with my iPhone 3GS and then unlocked it with redsn0w iPad BB but do think about it before you do it there is no going back, after i did it i do kinda wish i waited now.

      help
      i know the apple server where the iPad BB s the one you need to unlock was getting slammed, so just give it a little bit! it should work, if not it means that apple removed it already, i know musclenerd was on about apple taking it down!

      Yes you can when you start redsn0w have it update the BB to the iPad BB

      Here's what I did on my iPhone 3G 4.1 baseband 5.14.02:

      1) Used redsnow to jailbreak and update to iPad baseband 06.15
      2) Installed ultrasnow to unlock

      Worked perfectly, I had a signal and everything, but made the stupid mistake to update using iTunes to 4.2

      Now I get "Connect to iTunes" logo screen and can't restore as the baseband it's not correct anymore.

      What can i do? Is it officially bricked?

      Can anyone help me with a custom IPSW 4.1 3G as I don't have a Mac pleaaseeeeeee ((

      Try kicking out of recovery with tiny umbrella. If that doesnt work then restore back to 4.1. When you get 1015 error kick out of recovery with tiny umbrella.

      I used again redsnow with the update baseband option checked using firmware 4.2 ... and it worked!

      The strange thing is that I am still on 4.1

      Any idea how can I update to 4.2?

      You are going to need a custom 4.2.1 to be able to get to 4.2.1 now that you have the iPad baseband.
