01-29-2012, 02:07 AM #1Help with iPhone 4 on 5.0.1 and Baseband 04.11.08
Just tried to update my iPhone 4 to the new 5.0.1 using a NO BB Custom Firmware with RedSnow. Half way through it crashed on me and could not reboot even to DFU Mode, Tried for hours and suddenly itunes could restore it but to the latest 5.0.1 with 04.11.08 Baseband....Great!!! but i was using a Gevey Sim as its a Three Mobile UK phone and i moved to Austria a while back so i could use my A1 Sim over here in it. Now i believe it cant be unlocked which is not good as i cant use it.
Any way of unlocking it at all or downgrading it back or does anybody now when the new Gevey Sim will be released
PS ( I was running 4.3.5 Firmware with Baseband 04.11.01)

No unlock, no downgrading basebands, so basically you need to sell the phone and get another either factory unlocked or has an unlockable baseband. Unlockable baseband = anything except 4.11.08.

buddy brought me his (recently bought) sexy white 32gb 4 on 4.11.08 hoping I could do it for him. Soon as I connected it to tinyumbrella and saw the bb I just felt so bad for him.
jb'd it at least so he could wifi it up, but sadly., yeah...waiting game for 1.3 Ultrasn0w I believe? Any word on that?

Well, I don't know if there is another thread on this or not. But, either way. . . . What do you all think of this 04.11.08 BS? How long will it take for the new "turbo SIM" to be released.
I'm just curious. I bought a iPhone 4 for dirt cheap and didn't even think to check how things were going in the Apple unlock world since I just Unlocked and Jailbroke a 3Gs in like 10 Minutes that I also got way dirt cheap.
It's not life threatening to me like some of the poor people who upgraded to 5.o that came with 04.11 and lost their phones. But, still. . . I wonder when it will be released.

It'll come when it does. There has never been a set amount of time for these things to be done. Could take a long time, or it could take less time, but it seems Apple is getting serious lately. Or the jb devs are busier nowadays.

People don't understand that we are not the dev team lol. How are we supposed to know if/when an unlock is coming?
An unlock will be out within 20 years. No one here can provide you with a specific answer. If you even ask devs, they won't provide you with a specific answer. An unlock will be out when it is ready. We are not the dev team.
There is no way at all to unlock 4.11 (unless you go to your carrier, in which case search the internet/forums). No one here knows when an unlock is coming out. Why would we? When have devs ever said "hey in 3 days unlock is coming out"

They have said that, and it blew up so they stopped giving ETA's, lol. But yeah you're right, nobody really knows except the devs and even then they can only estimate.

Well. . . . . I did not say in any way that any of know when it will come out.
But, instead what is your opinions on this.
This is the first time I been back to the iPhone game since 3.1.x
So, I really have no way to measure by previous releases.
But, it does sure seem that way. Apple really stepped it up a notch in the security field. I remember first gens were getting unlocked and jailbroken quite quickly back in the day when new firmware releases came out. At least that's what I remember.

It used to be quick, like within a week a jb is out and within a month an unlock is out; but nowadays it's much longer. So I guess to say what I really think, the unlock is a long way down the road (if ever it comes). The iPhone 4 hasn't had a new unlock since 1.59.00...so yeah. It sucks to say but it looks like Apple has the upper hand (for now?).
02-01-2012, 08:11 PM #12
It's all a game. They always have the higher hand. We're buying their sh1t. They can't lose. We love to hate them. I don't know exactly why it takes longer. I'm just not on a developer level.
So, from what I gather. The saps like me have been stuck with a iPhone touch pod since the end of October of last year. Hmmmmm, kinda long. I dunno

what's the verdict about these websites that charge $19.99-34.99 to offer 'JB's & unlocking'???
Those ones that boast., 'can unlock any model iphone' including '4S' IE Unlock iPhone 4S and Unlock iPhone 5.0 Like WTF???
I've heard that some are scams...but can ALL of them be scams? Can all their posts be scams???

in regards to these "sites" that offer the 04.11.08 unlock i feel it's all bs. i mean think about it. if this was true, wouldn't we have heard by now from some member that it was a success??? i mean confermation or so??? i don't know about u all, but i haven't heard anything yet. number 2 point....if the devs cannot produce a working unlock as of yet, how is it these "sites" can???? and my last point i wanna make....the videos from these "sites" that show the unlock, how do we know if that isn't an already factory unlocked iphone they r working with??? we have no way to tell. so given what i said i believe these sites r fake. i was curitious and sent an e-mail to a couple of these so called unlocking sites that state, "we will answer ur e-mails within the next 24 hours". a week later still nothing. so that tells me no support, no nothing. so what i suggest like i have on other forums, if u wanna be brave enough and try one of these "sites" do ur hw 1st b4 u throw away ur hard earned cash . i myself will have to wait for gevey sim 2 to come out to try unless something happens with the devs between now and then.

There is no unlock solution at the moment with the Gevey SIM or software unlock on bb 4.11.08.
