Back in December 2011, iPhone Dev Team had revealed that they were working on a promising unlocking solution for iPhone 4S.
But it has been almost a month since the jailbreak dream team has released Absinthe Jailbreak and Redsn0w CLI tool to jailbreak iPhone 4S and there has been no further updates about the software solution to unlock iPhone 4S.
While the wait for Ultrasn0w for iPhone 4S continues, Gevey has unveiled Gevey Ultra S, which they claim can unlock iPhone 4S running iOS 5 or iOS 5.0.1 and basebands 1.0.11, 1.013, 1.0.14. With Gevey Ultra S, iPhone 4S users won’t need to cut their SIM card or have to dial Emergency number 112, which was deemed illegal in countries like the US.
According to ApplenBerry’s website, Gevey Ultra S comes with the following features:
- GEVEY™ True Plug-and-Play Unlocking SIM Interposer
- No Need to Dial International Emergency Number 112
- Untethered Unlock with no Jailbreak Required
- Compatible with all GSM iPhone 4S SIM Cards
- Complete Unlock with all 2G and 3G data services
- No SIM Card Cutting or Physical Modifications
- Works on iOS 5.0, 5.0.1
- Works on Baseband 1.0.11, 1.013, 1.0.14
- Guaranteed Better Reception than Previous
- Decreased Power Consumption
ApplenBerry has posted the following video to demonstrate that the Gevey Ultra S can unlock iPhone 4S:
Gevey Ultra S is currently available for pre-order for $54.99 on ApplenBerry’s website and expected to be available between March 3rd – March 7th.
We would strongly recommend you to wait for some positive feedback before ordering it as hardware based unlocking solutions haven’t been very reliable.
