UltraSn0w iPhone unlock for iOS 5 coming tomorrow?

iOS Dev-Team member MuscleNerd says that UltraSn0w will be updated as soon as tomorrow with support for iOS 5, allowing iPhone users to unlock their device to use on unsupported carriers.

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

Keep in mind that the UltraSn0w unlock will only work for 01.59.00, 05.11.07, 04.26.08, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and 06.15.00 basebands, so if your baseband differs from these you won't be able to unlock your iPhone using UltraSn0w until the Dev-Team finds a new exploit.

It's currently possible to upgrade your iPhone to iOS 5 while preserving your baseband using the current version of RedSn0w, which you'll also need to jailbreak your iPhone before starting.

Will you be unlocking your iPhone with UltraSn0w?

UltraSn0w iPhone unlock for iOS 5 coming tomorrow?


o_O Yeesh, don't have to be so rude about it. And yes I can read. I'm not a techy person myself, so I wouldn't know if the 4.10.01 is included in those that is listed, even if it slapped me in the face. Now can you spell? cause you realise that the letters "y" and "o" are on the same row as "u".

Is there any risks on doing this? Im on iOS 4.0.1, baseband 01.59.00. Also, when the untethered version comes out will I be able to do the whole redsn0w hack again to be untethered?

how do i unlock my baseband 03.10.01 plz plz plz plz guys work on this thing .............. is that posssible that it can b unlocked or i changed my phone to factory unlock

Thanks for every other magnificent post. Where else could anyone get that type of information in such a perfect means of writing? I've a presentation subsequent week, and I am at the look for such info.

He has milk with fruit and protein powder in the morning? These are three things that the older Chinese population in The China Study have never eaten ... well, they have some fruit once in a long while when they can afford it, but no milk, no protein powder. They get their protein from pork and chicken and fish. Sorry to bust your bubble.
