It was only last week that we had hackers from Europe claiming to have completely unlocked the iPhone using a SIM reader/writer and a blank SIM card to obtain full calling and SMS capabilities. However, there were issues reported that though the hack worked it depends on the SIM card you use.
We now have news that you can unlock the iPhone using a Turbo SIM card, without depending on the version of your current SIM card and doesn’t use card readers.
So let me give you more details on the issue with the last update regarding this iPhone hack (see iPhoneHacks.com, Hackers from Europe unlock iPhone to work with any carrier with forged SIM).,
As mentioned earlier, there were issues reported that if you had an old SIM (V1) then it was possible to use the published method and program (forge) the new SIM card to make it work with the iPhone and on your network. However, if you are using one of the modern version of the SIMs i.e. V2 or V3 SIM then it wouldn’t work.
The primary reason for this was; it was possible to extract the Key identification (KI) of your old card which was needed to program the forged card but it was not possible to remove the KI from V2 or V3 SIMs as they used a different encryption.
This time round the hackers are claiming to have come up with a method which doesn’t use card readers and more importantly doesn’t depend on which version of the SIM you are using, it will work fine with V1, V2 or V3. They say that with the new iPhone hack you will have full calling, SMS and GPRS capabilities with any network. The hack is not software only but based on initial reports seems simple enough for anyone to follow.
You also don’t need any extra hardware i.e. SIM reader/writer like you needed for the earlier iPhone hack and all you need is to modify the $80 blank SIM using your own iPhone.
Update: I don’t have an iPhone to try this out, but here seems to be a link for the How-to on unlocking the iPhone using Turbo SIM. The how-to link along with the link of Bladox Forums should cover most of the stuff required on this iPhone hack. Let me know if it works for you.
