Unlock For iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G On iOS 4.2.1 Released [Updated]

Unlock iPhone 4

iPhone Dev Team has released the eagerly awaited unlock for iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS users on iOS 4.2.1 just as they had promised.

Apple had patched the exploit that allowed users to unlock their iPhone in iOS 4.1 released on September 8 so it has been a long wait for users who wanted to software unlock their iPhone to use it with any carrier.

Dev Team has provided the following information on their blog about the free software unlock:

Today we’re pleased to announce our free carrier unlock for iPhone3G/3GS owners with a baseband later than 05.13.04.  The unlock for that baseband exploited the AT+XAPP command, thanks to a crash initially discovered by @sherif_hashim (@Oranav also found this crash).  So what hole are we exploiting today, since Apple closed that AT+XAPP hole?  Well, we’re exploiting the exact same hole!

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! Some of us have been running 06.15 for weeks now on our iPhones in preparation for this release.

Since 06.15 is a higher version than 05.14 or 05.15 (where AT+XAPP is gone), anyone stuck at those versions can simply upgrade to 06.15 to unlock again!  Luckily for us, Apple *still* provides the iPad FW 3.2.2 with this vulnerable baseband right from their own servers. (Grab it now, before they take it down!)

We’ve been busy updating both PwnageTool and redsn0w to make the baseband update as seamless as possible.

  1. First up is “PwnageTool 4.1.3 Unlock Edition”.  It has a special dialog box which will ask you if you want to update to the iPad baseband.  You must already have the iPad 3.2.2 IPSW on your computer (see the above link)….so just point PwnageTool at it (or let it find it on its own if you’re in “simple” mode).
  2. Directly after PwnageTool 4.1.3 is available, the official ultrasn0w repo http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com will be updated with ultrasn0w 1.2, which covers iPhone 4 baseband 01.59.00 and iPhone 3G/3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and now 06.15.00.
  3. Finally, we’ll release an update to redsn0w today for those without Macs and can’t run PwnageTool.  The new redsn0w will give you the option to update your baseband to 06.15 too.

WARNING — YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!  PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF UPDATING TO 06.15.

  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.

This PwnageTool also contains a 4.2.1 bundle for iPhone3G owners…for all else, it’s still only 4.1.  If you have an iPhone3GS with an old bootrom, the new redsn0w will handle 4.2.1 for you (in fact it covers 4.2.1 for all devices, even though some of them are still tethered at 4.2.1 until @comex can work some untethering magic).  iPhone3GS users with old bootroms who want to go to 4.2.1 should not use this PwnageTool! Update to stock 4.2.1 first, then use the upcoming redsn0w to update your baseband.

Update 1:

Dev Team has released the following update:

There’s an error in the bundle for the iPhone3GS 4.1 that prevents the new baseband from being used.  If you know your way around OSX, please download the fixed bundle, and unzip it if Safari hasn’t already done so.  Then “Show Package Contents” of PwnageTool.app, navigate to Contents->Resources->FirmwareBundles and drop it there.   Otherwise, please wait for the updated PwnageTool, or the OSX version of redsn0w coming soon.

Update 2:

Dev Team has released Redsn0w 0.9.6beta5 For iOS 4.2.1 Released To Unlock iPhone 3GS & iPhone 3G

Update 3:

iPhone Dev Team Releases Unofficial PwnageTool Bundle For iPhone 3GS

Update 4:

Activate iPhone Without Official Carrier SIM And Also Fix Poor Battery Life Issue After Unlocking Using SAM

Update 5:

Unlocking iPhone After Updating Baseband To 06.15.00 Causing GPS Issues

Please remember that unlocking your iPhone may void its warranty so proceed with caution.

As always, let us know how it goes.

    I am a Jailbreaker and Unlocker.

    I have my 3gs 32 GB with 3.1.3(7E18) / Modem Firmware 05.12.01

    Can I update to 4.2.1 directly from Itunes? Then Jailbreak with Redsnow and then Unlock with UltraSnow? Is that all ? Is there any risk ?

    Thanks

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com/ iPhoneHacks

      Yes that should do, the risks are the one mentioned by Dev Team of updating baseband to 06.15

      • http://www.apple.com Steve Jobs

        or you can wait till we release 4.3 :)


        Sent from my iPad

    • Iphone3gs New bootrom

      Better solution update 4.1 then jailbrek and unlock (4.2.1 need redsn0w reboot every time you reboot your device confirmed by me I did it and don’t like it)
      be carful your baseband will go 06.15.00 and there is no come back with baseband witch mean until apple relise base band higher then above(there is no confirmation thet normal update via iTunes will work)
      PS: I did it work’s fine

    • jd

      New or old Bootrom?

  • Tacoma

    Ultrasn0n doesnt cover BB 5.14.02? what’s going on!

  • tom

    I just install ultrasn0w 1.2 and no service with my BB 5.14.02 I am on 4.2.1 3gs MC model.
    Not working at all, any idea?

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com/ iPhoneHacks

      Ultrasn0w 1.2 does not unlock baseband 05.14.02, it can only unlock basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and now 06.15.00.

      To update your baseband to 06.15.00, you need to use PwnageTool (Mac) or Redsn0w (Windows).

    • Tacoma

      Same here
      There is no BB 5.14.02 list on Ultrasn0w

      • http://www.iphonehacks.com/ iPhoneHacks

        Ultrasn0w 1.2 does not unlock baseband 05.14.02, it can only unlock basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and now 06.15.00.

        To update your baseband to 06.15.00, you need to use PwnageTool 4.1.3 for Mac (released) or Redsn0w for Windows (will be released today)

  • Tacoma

    Some1 said “I updated my 3GS to 4.2.1 and it says it is modem 5.15.04 ” Ultrasn0w does not cover BB 5.15.04 either. How do you be sure u jailbreak with Redsn0w to get 06.15.00 BB. I just wish Ultrasn0w with 5.14 more headache!

    • DiabloZoe

      Go to the Devs website and read the instructions!

  • Koomoo

    What iPhones hacks is trying to say is dat u can’t unlock 5.14 because of fucking apple or 5.15 we have to upgrade r baseband to 6.15 so that means we have to go for another process of jailbreking n unlocking….

  • Moji

    Read guys…READDD!!!
    to unlock 5.14 or 05.15 they must be upped to 06.15 whhc is the ipads 3.2.2 firmware baseband
    im assuming the tools will be provided to do this
    however there are risks in updating to this baseband
    Weigh the pros and cons

  • Bobby

    Does it not unlock baseband 5.15.04?? am I missing something cause its not working? help

    • DiabloZoe

      NO!

  • Koomoo

    The only cons is not having warranty no more…. But everyone should know that unlock iPhones r more valuable then lock phones…. But it let’s everyone know to take care of there phones better

  • steveunderhill11

  • Koomoo

  • Koomoo

  • King

    I have iphone 3g with bb 5.13.X…using with custom FW 4.1…of course, jailbroken and unlocked with ultrasn0w.

    If I update the phone for 4.2.1, what BB do i get?

    Do you advice to upgrade to 4.2.1…its iphone 3g. Thanks a lot

    • iphone3g

      yeah, anyone? plzz im confused i also have iphone 3g with bb 05.13 on custom 4.1

    • DiabloZoe

      5.15.01

  • Sam23

    SMH… so it means that now we have to wait for redsn0w so we can unlock our iphones 3G & 3GS??? more waiting thats awesome. :-(
    bt im counting on them to release the new redsn0w today! so i can update to baseband 6.15

    so can i just update to firmware 4.2.1? so when they release the new redsn0w i just update my baseband to 6.15 with redsn0w??

  • Koomoo said to King

    shouldn’t u be able to use snowbreeze 2.1 with out ugradeing the baseband or please someone correct me?

    • DiabloZoe

      Its not updated to run with 4.2.1 it will work with 4.1

  • Chev Chellios

    Hey guys, is it safe for me to upgrade to 4.2.1 on my 3G BB 05.13.04. I want to unlock it. If possible can you give the link to the stuff i need to download. Im on windows btw.

  • Justin

    This is what I understand from the blog.

    If you are using 3gs and you are stuck on BB 05.14.2 and it’s locked…

    you have to upgrade to 6.15 which can be achieved by downloading the iPad 3.2.2 ipws and using pwnagetool 4.1.3 to create a custom ipws to restore.

    Once this is done, you can now goto cydia and install ultrasnow to unlock your 6.15.

    But there are pros and cons but whats pros could there be for a locked phone…

    Any corrections?

    • Tacoma

      I think so too
      Waiting for Redsn0w for Window and i think i can stay with ISO 4.1 no need to update to 4.2.1. You’ll need both Ipad 3.2.2 Iphone 4.1 or 4.2.1 firmware for this to be able update to ipad BB

  • Pussyman

    I wish and I believe that it could be usable for every jailbreaker to create a very simple step by step instruction by dev. team how to process the unlocking.
    What do you think?

  • lowdown

    I tried the Pwnage unlock edition which is supposed to cook up the custom firmware and the iPad baseband to be used with iPhone 3g and it fails everytime. Anybody else getting this?

  • Justin

    there’s a special pwnagetool for this ie PwnageTool 4.1.3 Unlock Edition not the other one. You must download this version and not the old one!

    • Sam23

      where do you get the PwnageTool 4.1.3 from??

  • iphone3g

    someone please answer my question my iphone 3g is on bb 05.13 on custom 4.1 i want to update to 4.2.1. Do i need to update my baseband to 6.15 to unlock it on 4.2.1?? or will i be able to use redsnow to update to ios 4.2.1 without upgrading my baseband??

    • DiabloZoe

      Pawnage tool and snowbreez were the only tools that would update with out changing the BB, but because more people have the newer bootrom the Dev team released pawnage this time without all the bundles so pawnage is like redsnow for the mac!

    • Nibiru07

      U do not want to update to 4.2.1, as of right now u can jailbreak and unlock ur phone with ur current IOS 4.1 and Baseband

  • ultrasn0wthebeast

    Oho Ultrasn0w unlock that everyone was waitin for

    that’s exactly what i wanted

  • Borat

    Can someone please correct me if im wrong but i understand that people using windows are unable to unlock their 3G or 3GS until redsn0w is released in a few hours. This is a quote from the dev teams webpage “Only do this if you need the unlock and you’re stuck on 05.14 or 05.15.” So i guess that unless your stuck on Baseband 05.14 and 05.15 then dont upgrade.

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com/ iPhoneHacks

      Yes, Windows users need to wait for Dev Team to release Redsn0w.

      You should only upgrade to 06.15.00 only if you are stuck on baseband 05.14.02 or baseband 05.15.04.

  • READ

    READ THIS CAREFULLY 3G/S USERS WITH 5.14/5.15 Modem Version, your going to need to update your baseband to an iPad baseband to be able to unlock. ULTRASN0W DOES NOT WORK FOR 5.14/5.14 BB

    READ THE BLOG CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FOLLOW THE STEPS BECAUSE IT COULD RESULT IN YOU LOSING YOUR CHANCE OF AN UNLOCK!!!

  • Justin

    so which product from the pwnagetool unlock edition do you select? ipad or iphone????

    • READ

      If your on version 5.15/5.14 BB then choose iPad.

      • Justin

        ok…so once pwnage creates the custom firewire…then I restore with iTunes? and install ultrasnow through cydia to unlock?

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com/ iPhoneHacks

      You should select iPhone.

      • Justin

        when I select iphone it doesn’t find the ipad 3.2.2 ipws when in simple mode…and when I goto expert mode it says bundle error…and when I select ipad it starts to create the custom ipws and then it stops and says fail???

        • http://www.iphonehacks.com/ iPhoneHacks

          You should use the iPhone ipsw the first time, you will be prompted for the iPad ipsw later on.

          • Justin

            am sooo confused right now! So I should download the iphone 4.1.2 ipws and use the pwnage unlock edition to create a custom 4.1.2 bundle? At what point will it ask for the iPad ipsw??

        • http://www.iphonehacks.com/ iPhoneHacks

          PwnageTool extracts the exploitable baseband in iOS 3.2.2 and will replace the baseband in iPhone ipsw.

          • Justin

            Ok…to summarize.

            Am using iPhone 3Gs 4.1 with baseband 05.14.02 locked.

            To jailbreak and unlock I have to do the ff;

            1. Download iphone 3Gs 4.1 FW
            2. Download iPad 3.2.2 FW
            3. Pwnage Unlock Edition
            4. iTunes 10.1

            - Start Pwnage Unlock Edition
            - Select iPhone from the choices
            - Choose the iPhone 4.1 FW
            - Pwnage will prompt you if you want to upgrade the baseband to that of the iPad – select yes and browse for the iPad 3.2.2 FW
            - Pwnage starts creating the bundle
            - Once done, dfu your iPhone, launch iTunes 10.1 and restore using the custom ipws.

            Am I right?

        • http://www.iphonehacks.com/ iPhoneHacks

          If you have an iPhone 3GS with older bootrom then you should wait for Dev team to release an updated version of PwnageTool with the fixed bundle.

          If you have an iPhone 3GS with newer bootrom you can try it out, but remember to read the risks of updating to 06.15.00

          • Justin

            ok…am on the new bootrom so I guess am good to go then?

  • ross

    Hi,
    I have a iphone 3g running on ios 3.1.3 unlocked.
    what will be different if I upgrade to 4.2.1?
    will the iphone 3g perform better or what?

    thank you

    • DiabloZoe

      go to aples webstite or there is a wiki site with all the Ios ver and what they provide. you will see that 4x offers more features the 3x and I have herd that 4.2.1 on 3G is pretty good!

  • trimmer

    will the ipad ipsw work on iphone 4 ??

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com/ iPhoneHacks

      You need to use the iPad ipsw only when you are prompted. PwnageTool extracts the exploitable baseband in iOS 3.2.2 and will replace the baseband in iPhone ipsw, which you then need to use to restore your iPhone.

      • WRONG INFO

        Dude if you read the dev blog you would know that the iPhone 4 is still yet to be unlocked, NO1 CAN UNLOCK THE IPHONE4 CURRENTLY the devs have found an exploit but are still working on it like the title says this is for iPhone 3G/S not any other iDevice.

        So next time read the question asked before actually providing information, and read the information that was provided by any Team/Hacker etc.
        (Dont take this the wrong way)

  • King

    if anyone has iphone 3g/3gs…do they need to go thro pwnage to get 6.15 BB, does not matter what the BB one has to have 4.2.1 unlocked???

  • Kenny

    Would this unlock my iphone 3g on 4.2.1??

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com/ iPhoneHacks

      If your iPhone 3G is on iOS 4.2.1 (baseband 05.15.04), then it means that it you will have to use PwnageTool to update the baseband to 06.15.00, which can then be unlocked using Ultrasn0w. However, please read the risks of updating baseband to 06.15.00.

        • Iphone3gs New bootrom

          I had same problem.Point is that you must ran redsn0w again and only check option “Just boot Tethered right now” and follow instructions after that(for me dosent worked).After that I run Redsn0w again and pointed it to 4.1 firmware and everithing was fine. If I helped I am glad
          PS:Iphone is 3Gs with new bootrom

  • will

    what? are you serious dev team? you’re already dealing with a user base that is, by all accounts, not technically apt (e.g. the large numbers of people that “accidentally” upgrade their BB) and this is your next great unlock release? you confuse the user base even further? by telling them that the 5.14.02 (which seems to be the larger # of users complaining) unlock won’t work unless they upgrade their phones with a different devices BB/FW? an even more confusing process with pitfalls to lead the user to what could potentially be a bricked device…and/or still locked…possibly forever? wtf.

    • DiabloZoe

      WTF is use the unlock you made or call the cops on the guy holding the gun at your head making you do this! Thing is its FREE don’t accidentally BITCH about free stuff!

    • ipiss

      I am totally agree with you. Waiting almost almost 2 months 4 ultrasn0w to unlock 5.14.02 BB and only wish not getting any error and problems using new Redsn0w, i’d rather stay with my 3gs 4.1 then update to 4.2.1

  • ipiss

    more waiting more suffering s h i t

    I am so confused I have a 3G on 4.0.1 and want to update to 4.2.1. My firmware is 05.13.04, all this stuff is confusing to me. If I update in itunes won’t my unlock be tethered?

      There is no available Pwnage Tool for 3G that will preserve your 5.13.04, only for 3gs is avaible. If you update it to iOS 4.2.1 your baseband will be 5.15.02,and it’s unlockable. If you so you will be force to update your baseband from 5.14.02 to 6.5 to unlock it. So “DON’T MESS UP YOUR CURRENT BASEBAND!” 4.2.1 is not worth updating. Some have problem with battery, Airprint is not working, I’ve tried it on my 3G. if you want to update, just 4.1. iOS 4.1 will make your iPhone3G better in speed. And it is almost the same as 4.2.1. “DO NOT UPDATE or RESTORE YOUR PHONE DIRECTLY WITH iOS 4.1″ which you downloaded from iTunes it will update the BB to 5.15.02. Only Restore with CUSTOM FIRMWARE build using SNOWBREEZE 2.1. Snowbreeze will not update the BB. CUSTOM FIRMWARE build has pre-jailbreak and pre-activated bundles.

  • http://woo.com look

    u guys r ridiculous. how dare you call yourself hackers… heheh :) it’s just ashamed. freaking teenagers. graduate first, work and have some experience and then you can relase something serious. it is going worst and worst. I am missing old days: ultrasn0w could unlock everything without any problem, spirit, jailbreakme.com. Can’t you just release one tool for everything? If not, don’t do this at all then. (limera1n, greenp0ison, sn0wbreeze, redsn0w, ultrosn0w, pwnage tool) and what else ??? I feel sorry for u MOTHER HACKERS ;-(ZZzzz

    • Borat

      This isn’t the old days anymore. Apple are making it more and more difficult to jailbreak and unlock, if you have been keeping up to date with iPhone Hacks or any other iPhone hacking website you would know that.

      Can you really call yourself a hacker?
      If your such a good hacker then it wont matter how many jail breaking programs are out.

      Did you graduate?
      Your English suggests that your didn’t.

      Dont feel so sorry for us. You should be feeling sorry for yourself.

    • Enoch

      What a wanker, go back to your N95 mate.

  • yalin

    disappointing and misleading for the last few weeks.i think the last 3-4 months every tool for jailbreak and unlock tool is a nightmare for the users.its getting worst and apple is in the advantage side.even my 3g is like junk cant imagine how 3gs and 4 users are.their genius way to unlock is thevworst ever!!!

  • Gerry

    I’M STUMPED? HAVE IPHONE 3G, NEED TO HACTIVATE AFTER MOST RECENT UPDATE. PLEASE HELP

  • DiabloZoe

    You guys must understand that they dont make this shit for you!! They do it for them selves at no cost and then decide to or not to release! Every situation is different they cannot cover them all! Best thing to do is buy an iphone unlocked or make your own JB/Unlock!

  • Koomoo

    CHAOS BABY!!!!

  • J

    Which bootrom for the 3gs is the old one and which is the new? I’m not sure which one I have.

  • Koomoo

    i understand if u look at ur serial number n if starts with MC u have the new bootrom n MB is old bootrom someone correct me if i’m wrong

    • DiabloZoe

      There are programs that you can dl that will tell you your iboot ver they require you to put the phone into DFU the MC/MB depends on the serial and applies to ipod touches I have an MC 3Gs but my 4th and 5th numbers in my serial number are 24. 24th week old boot ROM. I think above 40 and above are new! You can also check out Ih8Snows site and dl forcast

  • iSteve Hacker Jobs

    Here is a good way to jailbreak your iphone with baseband 6.15.xx is download a custom firmware 4.2.1 with unlockable basebands. This is for all smart and idiot people.

    It should be released as soon as later tomorrow. Custom firmwares are on the way…

  • yalin

    and iphonehacks this is not a breaking news would you mind changing header?its not unlocking anything.its bullshit.

    • DiabloZoe

      Should they change it to Yalin releases unlock for all idevices and all BB’s???? Didnt think so! Go purchase an unlocked Iphone no probs no bitching!

      • yalin

        shut up moron.

    • Borat

      Please be quiet.

      • DiabloZoe

        NOPE!

  • DiabloZoe

    There is an update #1 on the devs site for 3Gs bundles must check out if your getting errors!

  • Reyes

    My iPhone’s wifi has a problem and it can’t access the wifi. Is there any way I can still unlock my phone?

  • Daniel

    Do not blame those guys,just blame it on AT&T and Apple,Steve Jobs is the biggest control freak you will ever come across.
    And the next time you buy technology consider Android first,I will.

  • Reyes

    My iPhone’s wifi has a problem and it can’t access the wifi. Is there any way I can still unlock my phone? Please help.

    • busted

      Try switching it back on again in settings. seriously though, did you try to JB it or what? its no good telling what the problem is if you don’t tell us what you’re up to.

      • Reyes

        All I did was jailbreak. I’m on 4.2.1 now. I was just wondering if there was any way to unlock the phone without having to use wifi.

  • J

    so i just want to be clear before i do this (the last thing i want to do is have to wait another 2 months or more for an unlock). i have a 3GS, old bootrom (MB), on 4.1 with 5.14.02 baseband. according to the dev team, i should update to apple’s 4.2.1 through itunes and use redsn0w to update my baseband, then ultrasn0w will work for me. is this correct?

  • iphone3g

    iphone 3g on 05.13 with custom 4.1 i wanna update to 4.2.1 do i need to update the beaseband aswell? and when is redsnow going to be released?!

  • Wen

    well, I have Iphone 3G baseband 05.14.02, i use to have 4.1 but now i downgrade it back to 3.1.2 and hoping it will also change the BB. and now what do i do??? i a, scared.

  • DiabloZoe

    Redsnow released! Dl on the dev site!

  • Dariio90

    my iphone is 3g 3.1.3 unlocked, do i have to update thru itunes before goin thru all steps??

  • Vincent

    My Iphone’s Wifi has problem too. Is there any way to unlock without using Wifi?

  • B

    i have a 3gs os4.1 bb05.14.02
    so basically my question is when do i update to 4.2? before or after i use redsn0w? cause it says to select the corresponding IPSW for my current firmware. do i point it to 4.2 while im still in 4.1? or to the ipad 3.2.2? sorry.. but thx ^_^

  • stupidfuk

    I just followed the instructions and now i have baseband 5.15.04 on my 3G and can’t find a damn carrier. Thought this was supposed to unlock 5.15! WTF! I have windows so I can’t update my baseband to 6.15.

    Now what!?

    • DiabloZoe

      5.15 is bundled with 4.2.1 now you use Redsnow to update the bb to 6.15 and ultraslow to unlock

  • JBer

    Does anyone know if Cydia is working as it should on iOS 4.2.1? Thank you.

  • Lee

    I agreed with Will’s comments i’m also lost too! Pls make a video of how to baseband update pls anyone or the iphone hack teams ur the pro u should VDO and show us of how is being done :)

  • Aaron

    do u need to click the ipad instead of the iphone on pwnage tool?

  • B

    oh so i update my phone to 4.2. run redsn0w and then point it to the ipad fw and turn it into a custom ipsw and then restore off it? keeping my 4.2 but changing the bb?

  • B

    nvm.. just realized theres a comments sections on the devblog.. lol thx anyways. yay

  • Lee

    How about can I just updated from 4.1 to 4.1.2 VIA iTune will my BB change to 5.14.02 to 6.15?

    • DiabloZoe

      NO! 5.15 is bundled with 4.2.1 6.15 is an ipad exploitable bb

  • vis

  • iphone3g

    my iphone 3g is still in 05.13 baseband do i upgrade it to 05.15 to make it 6.15????? or do i wait for another jailbreak that will work with 05.13??? please answer guys!!

    • http://aol.com whocares

      5 13 can be unlocked

  • Justin

    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.

  • Lee

    ru sure about that Justin? what BB ru on MB or MC mode? how come it won’t work on mine

    • Justin

      Yep! Am on the new bootrom iPhone 3Gs. Was on FW 4.1 locked with baseband 05.14 now I am on 4.1 unlocked using ultrasn0w on baseband 6.15

    @LEE, during the process, it will ask you to input iphone FW first and then it will ask you to input ipad FW to get to 6.15, which will extract that BB from ipad FW

  • iphone3g

    thanks

    • iphone3g

      plzz someone answer him i have almost same problem xept mine is on ios 4.1!

    • iphone3g

      do you know anything yet?? anyone??

    • DiabloZoe

      Depends on what you want to do! if you want to go to 4.2.1 then you need to update to 6.15 because the bundled BB is not suported by Ultrasnow! Now if the BB you are on is not unlockable then you need to get it to an unlockable one! 4.26.08 5.11.07 5.12.01 and 5.13.04 are unlockable! Now as of not it seems to be a problem to use an older BB with 4.2.1 I have 4.1 used snowbreez and kept my 5.11.07 BB. You have to clairify what you want to do and if its jump upto 4.1.2 you need 6.15!

  • rob

    any way to unlock without wifi?

  • peter

    still hanging
    how long does it take to reboot?

  • H2O2H

    3G BB 5.14 and no jailbreak. Can I just go straight to Redsnow, BB6.15, then unlock with Ultrasn0w, w/o the initial jailbreak. Recommended jailbreak if so?

    • Julian

      hey dude

      im currently on 05.14.02

      what are the steps i need to take in order to jailbreak and unlock..i would appreciate your reply pls..thanks

  • michael

    you can upgrade for your iphone 3g if you like as long as your sure that your baseband will stay below the ones required by ultrasnow in my opinion sure you can but before doing that download the available redsnow and the 4.1.2 software after you finish downloading the firmware tested on the redsnow to see if it works, if redsnow accepts the ipsw well your good to go!

  • michael

    i just tried it and it works fine! so i guess you can go ahead and restore it threw itunes and then use redsnow for the jb part good luck! and if anything goes out of other feel free to ask i am here to help i know the newbie feeling you get when your about to do all this process yourself.

    • iphone3g

      michael can you help me? i have an iphone 3g on ios 4.1 baseband 05.13 i want to update to 4.2.1 but if i do do i need to do it through itunes and get baseband 05.15 and then use redsnow to go to 6.15??? helpme im confused!! thanks!

      • michael

        you will need to update to the new software provided by itunes then after that download the iphone software via felixbruns.com search for the one that saids iphone 3g 4.2.1 download it and use it with readsnow to unlock your iphone

  • ITcrowd

    Actually it is very simple. Upgrading your iphone baseband to 6.15 means you will never be able to use any original apple firmware. Why? Because BB 6.15 is from iPad, it is unlockable. But once you use it in iPhone all future original apple firmware updates will fail on your iPhone. So there is no way back, no warranty. Ever.

    • Tacoma

      Not so worry about the warranty, all i care about is
      be able to unlock and use it with Tmobile. But i believe you can restore to custom firmware in the future but never apple firmware, the BB always be 06.15.00

  • sam23

    idk what i did wrong bt it doesnt matter what i do my phone wont get out of recovery mode :( its on BB 6.15 and cydia was crashing to i tried to jailbrake it again and it wouldnt just get out of recovery mode. any help from anyone? :((

  • John

    I don’t see what is the big deal abou this release. If you upgrade to 4.2.1 it will change your baseband to the ones this new ultrasn0w doesn’t support and from there to go and update to 6.15 is just plain stupid. The thing that should’ve been release is the custom ispw OR an ultrasn0w that will unlock the baseband for the current ios. Now it’s more waiting and what about when 4.3 comes out? It’s gonna update to an unsupported baseband and we just keep running in circles.

  • elvis

    Hi everyone just want to be clarified i want to upgrade my bb to 6.15 using redsnow how do i do it? is the upgrade for redsnow out yet? im lost at that point. where do i get this redsn0w from?

  • Sn0wTiger

    so if i update my bb to 06.15.00, i will never be able to update my iphone 3gs with future updates from apple? like im on 4.1 and apple releases an update for like 4.4 i wont be able to update my iphone?

  • Daniel

    Hey people.
    Just make sure this is the kind of jailbreak you want for your device,I believe it will be a tethered one for certain idevices,such as 3gs with new bootrom. ;-( ;-(

  • bikesh

    well i have iphone 3g bb 5.13.04 now if i update it now to 6.15 and unlock its good but what if apple releases ios 4.3 with other bb than 6.15 then again it is stucked…is there any chances that dev team is realeasing other methods to those who hasn’t yet updated there ios and bb so that it can be used with ios 4.3 which is releasing in mid december

  • Psyherin

    nobody talks abt iphone 4 baseband 02.10.04 nor the unlockers work on that baseband. plz plz plz look after iphone 4 users too

  • Amal

    Michael, I am newbie. can u explain exact steps on how to unlock IPhone 3GS 4.1 baseband 5.14.2 using windows computer.

    • michael

      Ok…for all those people using MAC and running an iPhone 3Gs (new bootrom) 4.1 with baseband 05.14.02 locked. You cannot upgrade to the 4.2.1 on 3gs using Pwnage but if you really want you can use redsn0w to create a tethered jailbreak which means you will have to connect the phone to your PC anytime you restart it.

      So, to jailbreak and unlock a new bootrom iPhone 3GS running 4.1 on 05.14 fw, do the ff;

      1. Download iphone 3GS 4.1 FW
      2. Download iPad 3.2.2 FW
      3. Pwnage Unlock Edition
      4. iTunes 10.1

      - Start Pwnage Unlock Edition
      - Select iPhone from the choices
      - Choose the iPhone 4.1 FW
      - Pwnage will prompt you if you want to upgrade the baseband to that of the iPad – select yes and browse for the iPad 3.2.2 FW
      - Pwnage starts creating the bundle
      - Once done, dfu your iPhone, launch iTunes 10.1 and restore using the custom ipws.
      - Launch cydia and download ultrasn0w to unlock.

      if you having problems creating the bundle, please download the fixed bundle (http://iphwn.org/iPhone2,1_4.1_8B117.bundle.zip), and unzip it if Safari hasn’t already done so. Then “Show Package Contents” of PwnageTool.app, navigate to Contents->Resources->FirmwareBundles and drop it there. Once you have done this, relaunch pwnage and repeat the steps above.

  • Abid

    To everyone waiting for Red Snow, It has been released on the Dev team website, Iphone hacks hasn’t updated their post yet, I upgraded to 6.15 and unlocked two phones, works perfectly.
    Download Redsnow,
    download 4.2.1 and select it as the Ipsw
    click next then select the Install Ipad Firmware
    folow instructions to enter DFU and then just wait, it took about 15 minutes for the whole process to be complete

    remember you wont be able to update the firmware in the future unless the Dev team figures a way around this

    when i go to download the ipad ipsw, it downloads as a .zip file instead of .ipsw and wont show up as the cube logo, just as a zip folder.

    please help!!! im on windows

    • tacoma

      i dont think you need ipad firmware if you using Redsn0w for windows, but you’ll need your iphone ipsw either 4.1 or 4.2.1 whatever u got on your device

  • RCGcebu

    Iphone dev. Team said you can not downgrade from 4.2.1 to 4.1 right? Guess what i have dowgraded my iphone3g os from 4.2.1 to 4.1 with baseband 6.15 ( of course) but the problem is ultrasnow 1.2 is not compatible with OS 4.1. My 3G is extremely laggy! I cant even slide slider on the lock screen. But I know and i have experience this the same problem when my baseband is still 5.14 / 5.15 and install ultrasnow 1.2. I just want know guys that 4.2.1 is downgradable. Now il try to downgrade to 3.1.3!

  • Ashbel

    There is an ETA for the iphone 4 unlock??? Thanks for the reply!!!

  • dondon41

    My 3G iOS 4.1 has bb 6.15, It is jailbroken but after installed ultrasnow 1.2 to unlock it it will become extremely laggy.it is even hard to slide the slider on the lockscreen. i downgraded it from 4.2.1

  • dondon41

    I have successfully downgraded my 3G from 4.2.1 to 4.1 with bb 6.15! unlocked! and it is Untethered!

  • Romania

    easy peasy unlocking lads, here’s how:
    I have 3G os 4.2.1 i used macbook pro iTunes 10

    1.download latest pwnage tool
    2.download iPhone1,2_4.2.1_8C148_Custom_Restore.ipsw
    3. run pwnage tool and cook yer own ipsw
    4. follow the pwnage tool instructions
    5. after you enter DFU successfully, iTunes will popup asking you to restore your iphone.
    6. restore iphone to the factory settings (the cooked ipsw will automatically upload to your iphone)
    7. after the restore you’ll see the USB cable and iTunes logo on your iphone, dont worry, insert a valid sim card and activate your iphone as instructed by iTunes.
    8. the trick is that a lot of people have stopped here. You’ll need to reboot the iphone several times and disconnect and reconnect to you computer.
    9. after a few reboots, the iphone booted nicely up
    10. open cydia, go to menu, click the middle icon and scroll to ultrasn0w repo http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com and install it. Follow the instructions and reboot when instructed. I suggest you connect with your wifi do download faster
    11. get you Tmobile card and replace the ATT, it will say No Service, you’ll need to reboot again. After the reboot it will say Searching…. for about 3-5min then it will connect to Tmobile network. That’s it. Hats off to the hackers, good job!!!!

    hello dev-team: my only concern is that, there is no unlock for iPhone 4. me and my brother live in Europe (Georgia). we both got our iphone 4s as a gift from USA, but both of them are locked to version 4.1. i became an expert :) coming to this site each end every day. we’ve been waiting for unlock for about 4-5 months know. it is kind of uncool to have a $1000 phone and not be able to use it. if you guys can develop something like imei unlock or something, you can make a fortune by donations, simply let us donate first and than give us a code, we all trust you. if not, than can you at list please, I’m begging you tell me a decant website where i can unlock officially from apple itself, for about $100. there are many sites, but mostly they are saying that “the unlock is for specified country and specified carrier” in my country Georgia there are only “magti, geocell and belain carriers”. please help me out, I’m exhausted by waiting. thank you in advance. you can also email me if you wish: dato1222@yahoo.com. thank you aain

    Any news on iPhone 4?

  • portland503

    Ok guys- first off let me say you guys are awsome. got to love technology now a days. I have a iphone 3G 8GB currently on t-mobile with 3.1.2 i would like to reboot this thing due to problems with cydia and it is running slow lately, what OS should i go for that is reliable? and how should i go about unlocking/jailbreaking this using jailbreakme.com???? any help would be greatly appretiated. thanks

  • carol schwab

    Hello, i’ve done the unlock in a 3g iphone running 4.2.1 and with 6.15.00 baseband with ultrasnow. After that, I’ve got no service at all. I’ve already tried to restore all settings, but wasn’t succesfull. could you please help me? tks

  • Adil

    so the only way to unlock iphone 3g on 4.1, 5.14.02 bb is to update to the ipad firmware?

  • Spott

    I have an iPhone 3Gs running 4.0.2 firmware with BB 05.13.04, jailbroken, unlocked and stuff… but the problem is that it either shows NO SERVICE at all, or sometimes shows one or two bars of GSM service. I think that updating the BB might solve my problem, but I can’t find if it’s possible just to update the baseband and to keep the current firmware? Because updating the firmare up to 4.1 or 4.2.1 and unlocking it using the 06.15 baseband might lead to even worst consequence – no GSM signal at all.
    Of course, the antenna may be the reason for this, but the phone is new and i never dropped it and stuff, so I suppose all the hardware is fine.
    Anyone has any ideas? please!

  • Spott

    also I have another 3Gs FW 4.1 BB 06.15 unlocked, and there’re no problems with GSM signal at all, but still I just can’t deside whether it is worth risk to update unlocked 4.0.2 with BB 05.13.04 with low signal up to 4.1 BB 06.15 with the possibility of no signal at all :(

  • FoGSoftware

    I have an iPhone 3G with baseband 05.15.04. So can I jailbreak it and unlock it or not ? I’m a bit confused. I read that I can and can not. If I can, what do I need ?

    Thanks !

    Thank you for that smart critique. Me & my neighbour were preparing to do some research about that. We received a very great book on that matter from our local library and most books exactly exactly where not as influensive as your information. Im quite glad to see this type of info which I was searching for a long time.
