This guide with show you how to unlock iPhone 3G/3GS on iOS 4.1 and iOS 4.2.1 using Ultrasn0w version 1.2.
Note: Make sure you have read the following information here about the latest release of Ultrasn0w and PwnageTool 4.1.3.
iPhone Dev Team’s iPhone 4, 3G and 3GS software unlock, now with added PwnApple. Compatible with iPhone 4 baseband 01.59.00 and iPhone 3G/3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and 06.15.00! Thanks to @sherif_hashim and @Oranav for contributing baseband crashes.
Step 1: Sync your iPhone with iTunes to back-up all your important data including settings, apps, music, contacts and photos.
WARNING — YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! PLEASE UNDERSTAND THE CONSEQUENCES OF UPDATING TO 06.15.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
Step 3: Launch “Cydia” on your iPhone.
Step 4: Typically, the Ultrasn0w repo is included with Cydia. If not, tap the “Manage” tab located on the bottom tab bar.
Step 5: Tap “Sources”, “Edit”, then “Add”. You’ll be prompted to add URL source. Type “http://repo666.ultrasn0w.com” and tap “Add Source”.
Step 6: Cydia automatically refreshes and updates sources.
Step 7: After Cydia is done refreshing sources. Tap the “Search” tab on the bottom tab bar and search for Ultrasn0w. Once Ultrasn0w appears, tap and you should see version “1.2″. Ultrasn0w is a software unlock for your iPhone, so you can use it with any carrier by simply inserting the SIM card.
Step 8: Restart iPhone and voila! Your iPhone should now be fully unlocked.
