Dev Team To Release Ultrasn0w For iOS 5 Tomorrow [Unlock iPhone]


MuscleNerd, member of the iPhone Dev team has just announced that they will release Ultrasn0w for iOS 5 after an update for MobileSubstrate is released tomorrow.

Dev team has already released Redsn0w for iOS 5 for Mac, which includes the PwnageTool functionality and iH8sn0w had released Snowbreeze for Windows that allows users to preserve iPhone’s baseband while upgrading to iOS 5.

MuscleNerd tweeted few minutes back:

will coordinate ultrasn0w iOS5 compatibility update to come out *after* a planned MobileSubstrate update tomorrow

Please note that we’re assuming that Dev team will release it as soon as MobileSubstrate is released, but it is possible that it is released a little later.

Ultrasn0w currently supports the following basebands  01.59.00 (iPhone 4), baseband 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and 06.15.00 (iPhone 3GS). We don’t expect it to support latest basebands such as 04.11.08 (iPhone 4) or baseband 05.16.05 (iPhone 3GS) that comes bundled with iOS 5 that was released yesterday. Note: You can find your iPhone’s baseband by going to Settings –> About –> Modem Firmware

So Ultrasn0w for iOS 5 will be useful only for users who have iPhones with the older basebands mentioned above, unless Dev team has a surprise for us.

As always, we’ll keep you posted, so stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or join our Facebook Fan page or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.

  • mato

    its more than a year since baseband 02.10.04 for iPhone 4 had been released and still no progress. they should have reported that this baseband and up is impossible to unlock. waited more than a year for this but no news

    • Sam

      I am running iPhone 4 with baseband 02.10.04 on firmware 4.1..ultrasn0w supports it with 1.2.3 but will upgrading to ios 5 with preserving my baseband work?

      • jinesh

  • MaurinX

    Is ther any chanc with iOS 5 to fix 3GS gps or downgrading bb 6.15

  • helnaw

    what the…. I don’t see my iPhone 4 baseband 04.10.01. I suppose thats a supported baseband, just my luck.

    • ne0

      Yes it is but you better create custim ipsw without the baseband update and upgrade you device using you custom in orden to keep your baseband

      • ne0

        i mean custOm

  • fas

    So 2.10, 3.10 and 4.10 can keep dreaming for an unlock!

  • Beauty

    Does Gevey sim work with new iOs5 released yesterday?

    • Toluco

      Yea it does ! Gevey ultra

  • applelover

    This sucks, i have a factory unlocked iphone 4 on 4.3.1 and i heard rumours that updating to ios 5 might lock my phone and on top of that i am on an unlockable baseband.

    • That’s not possible, if you’ve a factory unlocked iPhone that is. Software updates don’t lock it.

      Let us know where you came across this and we will have it verified as it just doesn’t seem right.

      • applelover

        There were some discussions in about factory unlocked iphones becoming locked after updating to 4.3.3. Just to let you know i also jailbroke my iphone 4 with cydia. So can i restore it with ios 5 and still be able to use the factory unlock?

  • Plat

    I have bought by accident also a factory locked Iphone. Do I have also any opportunities to unlock this?

  • Sketx

    Guys, any news about the untethered? That is the most important right now!

  • Beauty

    I agree with Sketx. Untethered is what i need. If MuscleNerd delivers the Updated UltraSn0w tomorrow as promised, i wouldn’t know what do lol

  • Bobo

    Agreed! WTF cares about unlock anymore? iPhone is on 3 networks now. All but tmobile, which has like 5 customers.

    UNTETHERED JB for IOS5 should be the primary focus. iPhones with tehtered JB is useless and too risky.

    • cudanh

      Over 1 million tmobile users using unlocked iPhones.

      And anyways I0n1c claims he already has the untethered jailbreak ready.

  • Sketx

    Let’s hope that is true 🙂

  • ne0

    if I jailbreak tether right now, will I be able to jailbreak untether in the future?

    • Sketx

      Yep, you just need to start all over!!

      • Ne0

        Thanks dude, i’ll start playing with tethered JB then!

  • Beauty

    I care about the unlock. I’m one of the T-mobile users with my iPhone 4. So right now the Updated unlock and UNtethered JB are my main focus.

  • Raissa

    They dont say about baseband 05.15.04? I have a 3Gs that It´s been almost one year that I cant unlock it. What I do? Keep waiting?

  • Hi

    Everyone with 3gs – upgrade your base band to the ipad baseband if u want an unlock.

    Excited for this. I have a 3gs with the old boot rom. Ios 5 untethered ftw!!! Haha suckers 🙂

  • mike

    update my iphone 3gs with ipad baseband and now my phone wont read my sim card also no way to activate my iphone 3gs cuz i have no att sim card.

  • Queenofhearts

    The 4s is both cdma & GSM. Will you be able to flash it to a different cdma network?

  • Sylvia

    is there any chance of an unlock for the 3GS with the old bootrom with baseband 5.16.05 without updating the baseband?

  • Raj
