    Default 04.11.08 unlock out? Is this legit?
    Hello all! Like many others, I have a bricked iPhone 4 because of the 04.11.08 baseband. Yesterday I read on pastebin (thank you google!) that Hamzah Akram has released 2 methods to unlock 04.11.08 baseband. The first method is a 14 - step method and the 2nd method is using a patch.

    Came here as soon as I read the news but didn't see any update yet.
    Can somebody tell me if this is legit?
    Thanks!

    I personally wouldn't try it if it involves too many steps and aren't very sure of what you're doing.

    I also read that one of the steps is to erase the baseband which is basically asking to brick your device and then you'll be left with nothing more then a pretty expensive paperweight.

    My advice would be just to hold off. I hear Applenberry is making a sim unlock for the 4.11.08 or you could always just go buy a factory unlocked one.

    Are they STILL using the erase baseband as a "viable" option?? I know one of the options is the hotswapping sim method (the long listed one), though I dunno what this "patch" one is, if it's the erase baseband then totally agree with ya, DEFIANTLY not an option

    The hotswapping is still being done which obviously doesn't really work. It's hit or miss. I tried it on a 3GS and a 4S and it catches signal for like 8 seconds and then drops. Big PITA if you ask me to have to keep repeating these steps.

    The methods are fake. One will brick your phone, the other will get you signal for a few seconds, a minute at best. Dangerous and not worth it.

    If you erase your BB you will brick your phone, guaranteed 100%

    I discovered this myself.

    The other method is also crap, at best you will see bars then they disappear.
