iPhone 3.1.3 05.12.01 baseband unlock imminent, Sherif Hashim discoversexploit

Written By Unknown on Wednesday, February 10, 2010 | 1:33 PM


iPhone 3.1.3 unlock

Just a week after Apple released the iPhone 3.1.3 update, Sherif Hashim has discovered an exploit that could allow iPhone users to unlock their iPhone on the iPhone 3.1.3 firmware on baseband 05.12.01 and use it with other carriers like T-Mobile in the US, for example. We get these a lot, but no the iPhone can't be unlocked to work with Verizon because Verizon operates on a CDMA network. Apple always updates the baseband with each update, causing many iPhone users to loose their unlock so this is good news for the iPhone users that had their baseband updated and lost their unlock.

For now, download iPhone toolbar (works on Windows/Mac on Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer browser) and you'll receive an alert once the unlock is released, and instructions on how to install it.

The exploit Sherif Hashim uses has not been revealed yet, but iPhone Dev Team member MuscleNerd has confirmed that it works. The iPhone Dev Team will most likely wait for Apple to release the next generation iPhone 4G before releasing this unlock so that Apple does not patch the exploit before then. For now, all iPhone users that are unlocked/jailbroken are advised to be extremely cautious of future firmware updates and avoid updating before the jailbreak tools are updated.

February 10, 2010 at 2:25 PM

Thanks for the hard work :)
Fortunately, I didn't upgrade my iphone to 3.1.3 so i'm fine and i can wait. the new firmware is not that good after all

Nice news! Now please let us unlock our iPhones PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!

February 10, 2010 at 2:49 PM

Verizon also has GSM phones most of their HTC phones are GSM
so it probabbly is possible to get an iPhone on their network.

February 10, 2010 at 2:52 PM

السيد شريف هاشم ، والتراسل الفوري في التحدث باسم الجميع ،

(MR SHERIF Hashim, im talking in the name of everyone,


February 10, 2010 at 2:57 PM

first of all great job. Can you tell us a release date or at least ETA until it will be available ?

February 10, 2010 at 3:12 PM

I think i can speak on behalf of everyone AVIDLY following DEV TEAM and ANYBODY who can unlock/jailbreak this new firmware, we really really need this. I'm very willing to donate to have this release sooner than iPhone 4g! It would kill us to wait that long! Please find it in your hearts to release it now, and accept the donations that would arrive for your noble efforts. We need you. You need money. And I KNOW you guys will be able to break through Apple's efforts to stifle you. PLEASE RELEASE THE UNLOCK! PLEEEAAAASSSEEE!

February 10, 2010 at 3:15 PM

For thpse pf u who are accidentally update ur iphone, let it be the lesson for u. Next time please and please read the information first before u update.... :)

February 10, 2010 at 3:32 PM

I wanted an iPhone for two years. I finally get the exact one I want and the day I do the 3.1.3 update comes out. Now I have a useless iPhone. Please release the unlock I'm desperate and because of my desperation I am ready and willing to donate whatever it takes. Please release the unlock tool! You can't see me right now, but I am on my hands and knees begging you.

February 10, 2010 at 3:39 PM

RELEASE THIS and a JB for 3.1.3 for 3Gs.

Come on guys, A LOT of people messed up and updated to 3.1.3 and we need this. We can't wait the 4-5 months until 4.0 is out. Just please release this now, we all need it!

February 10, 2010 at 3:47 PM

What should It matter If they released this "unknown" jailbreak for the 3.1.3 on new baseband now ? It´s just to push the problem further ahead, Apple are anyway gonna try to fix the this wormhole as soon It get´s public, In this state is just a fart In the wind or just as good as BS.

February 10, 2010 at 3:51 PM

Thank you so much for all the work you guys are doing but PLEASE RELEASE A 3.1.3 JAILBREAK FOR THE 3GS!!! im miserable without a jailbroken iphone and along with that im sure everyone who wants an unlock are just as miserable if not more... thank you so much guys....

February 10, 2010 at 3:57 PM

If they release this jailbreak/unlock now, apple would try to solve It. If they release this jailbreak/unlock when 4G comes, apple would try to solve It. So release this so far BS jailbreak to the needing people and take the credits for finding Apples miss In this so far hardest challenge, and see forward ro Apple´s next uppdate.

February 10, 2010 at 3:57 PM


February 10, 2010 at 4:37 PM

YOU GUYS ROCK FIRST OF ALL! SCREWW AT&T... But you should just release it if you have it. Because either way itunes will put a new update out to block immediately (just don't update firmware). Even after the 4g is out and you wait they will I'm sure have 2 or three updates right off the bat that will block the hack. BUT, until then I will keep an eye out for it.

in hopes...

February 10, 2010 at 4:51 PM

please relaise!!!i have now iphone 3g with 05.12.01 pleaseeeeeeeeeee help meeeeeeeee

February 10, 2010 at 5:10 PM

Yes, please release me from the confines of my locked iPhone! PLEASE!

February 10, 2010 at 5:23 PM

who accidently upgraded.

February 10, 2010 at 5:58 PM

Nice work!!! I knew you guys could do it!! :-D
Please relaese the unlock, there are so many people with locked devices :-S

February 10, 2010 at 6:04 PM

yes i couldnt agree more with diana accdental upgrAGE PLEASE RELEASE SOON

February 10, 2010 at 6:07 PM

release plz U.U

February 10, 2010 at 6:13 PM

Stop begging you idiots !

It your fault and your fault only if you upgraded your Iphone.

Thus, bear your own mistake.

February 10, 2010 at 6:30 PM

Well,OS 3.1.3 with Baseband 05.12.01 already unlocked ;)
Nice news but what should we do with that only ?
You`re waiting till new 4G ?!?!
Hmmmm,Geo will bring that Unlock to us if you still want.

...... :)

February 10, 2010 at 6:35 PM

If they release the unlock exploit, then apple can then patch it before the 4g phones are out.. ruining the exploit.. they are not easy to find, if they were, their would be no exploits to use. apple would patch them from the start.

The new update apple released is not a big deal so you should of waited to upgrade, I just updated my ipod touch and see no real difference. for those who did.. you'll have to wait.. better to have majority of people who upgraded to the new phone then a few who made a mistake updating their current phone.

February 10, 2010 at 6:39 PM

I think it's a really good idea to save the exploit for the 4g iPhone. While people keep finding these exploits, they are not unlimited and I'm pretty sure the people who buy the 4g will want an unlock... anyone who decided to blindly update (and needs the unlock) without checking to see if the baseband was updated deserves to be stuck for now.

February 10, 2010 at 6:49 PM

wait for 4G? what about us?please!!unlock my phone..

February 10, 2010 at 7:15 PM


February 10, 2010 at 7:27 PM

Whenis the 4G going to be released? I really need the unlock as well and really don't want to wait too long...

February 10, 2010 at 7:30 PM

I just read that the release date is going to be July 2010.....!! Please do not make us wait that long. We need the unlock now.

Please please please please :-)

February 10, 2010 at 7:31 PM

too all for u whom be (accidently or just stupidity)updated to 3.1.3

hv to sit and wait it out

February 10, 2010 at 7:42 PM

i really can't imagine not using my iphone until then.. It's so painful :(

February 10, 2010 at 7:42 PM

Mr Sherif Hashim, please release it soon, we need it right now
May Allah SWT bless you..

February 10, 2010 at 7:53 PM

I dont understand, why u there are people who dont want to release it asap. It contradicts a free community.

The 4.0 release will be a major release - so it is also possible, that the exploit found by sherif wont do anything in 4.0 - irrespective of releasing it now or later.

So pls release it asap!

February 10, 2010 at 7:58 PM

Thanks for your great job. But:00

Please please release. I have no unlock at the moment. Very frustrating.

February 10, 2010 at 8:25 PM

Pleeease release the unlock, July is so far away.

February 10, 2010 at 8:38 PM


This is very good news. Congrats! Thanks for your dedication to it.
I also ended up with a locked iphone. I understand the strategy of keeping it for the iPhone 4G, 3.1.3 does not give real new features, but still i'll love to see it publish.

In the meantime, what about support to downgrade the baseband from 05.12.01? Kind of like what Fuzzyband does for iPhone 3G. As I understand, Fuzzyband does not support the 06.04 Bootloader.
Do you need an exploit to enable baseband downgrade?

Great Work Sherif Hashim!

February 10, 2010 at 9:10 PM

give us some tutorial and link broooo

February 10, 2010 at 9:28 PM

I fully agree with you Scott. Why ruin a good hack for a few months or weeks. You know I really laugh at all this. Upgrading is not that simple if you have the slightest bit of grey matter so how can people 'accidently' upgrade. Really beats me, just plain stupidity really. Right now I have 2 brand new iPhones 3GS right in front of me both 3.1.3. These are from people just bought them without thinking at all. So I need a crack anf jailbreak but until then my friends will have to get by with their Nokia's.

February 10, 2010 at 9:33 PM

This is really a good news. I´m also in the unfortunate situation as the others. Please let us not wait so long.
Many thanks in advance.

February 10, 2010 at 9:38 PM

huh3, im a da one who xcidenly upgraded to 3.1.3...
almost a week im not using my 3Gs anymore bcoz of this prob...
please evryone, pray for new tool release...

February 10, 2010 at 9:42 PM

first of all good job done "sherif Hashim". Apple should know that there are other genius people other than them.But please release it now befcause many of us have accidentally or were forced to do an upgrade because of the recovery mode issue. We cant wait for july.Please hashim help us we will surely donate more than you guys think many people have done this terrible mistake.please as a noble deed please release this unlock.thnxxx

February 10, 2010 at 9:54 PM

You are the best, it's great news.
Please release it as soon as you can, there is really great number of people who are waiting for it. Greetings from Poland!

February 10, 2010 at 10:15 PM

February 10, 2010 at 11:12 PM

February 10, 2010 at 11:30 PM

Please make millions of us apply, please release the Unlock to the 3.1.3 on baseband 05.12.01. please.. we need it so much..

February 10, 2010 at 11:33 PM

Hello. Thanks a lot for the good news. We know now that there is a solution. I just bought a phone locked and thought the procedure to unlock would be the same easy one. Unfortunately this is what I found, it was blocked with 3.1.3 SW on it, I have now an expensive devise doing nothing. I am very frustrated so please add me to the list of people begging you to release the unlock with a big PLEASE!

February 10, 2010 at 11:45 PM

Great man.. But from where can i download unlock and what is the procedure..

February 10, 2010 at 11:48 PM

Please release!!! pls

February 10, 2010 at 11:49 PM

please share the unlock with us!!! i need that unlock!! i can't use my new 3g :((

February 11, 2010 at 12:33 AM

Martin, first off, this article is about UNLOCKING, not JAILBREAKING. Two totally different things.

February 11, 2010 at 12:34 AM

I too agree wth all the other people above,
i finally talked my partner into buying an iphone after showing her all the things i could do with my unlocked 3gs,
hers arrived wth 3.1.3 out of the box im like WTF????
nothting ive tried works.
Id be willing to pay $$$ for a jailbreak for her we just wanna send the phoe back now!
Apple Sucks
Sherif you RULE!
If it helps lol,,,,,please man on behalf of all the jailbreaking community in australia Release it PLEEEEEEEAAAAASE lol

February 11, 2010 at 12:37 AM

Please DO RELEASE IT as soon as you can!
A lot of us are stucked in 05.12.01 and our iPhones are just iPodTouches now!!! :-)

February 11, 2010 at 12:37 AM

The thing is... with this news, apple will probably upgrade the baseband for the new iphone 4G and this unlock tool will be useless, so release it ASAP.

OBS: the iphone 4G will come with many new features. New baseband and new firmware. You will find a way to unlock it. It just took 1 week for you to unlock this one.

My iPhone 3.1.2 is having problems, the only way to solve them is by performing a full restore, so it will go to FW 3.1.3 and BB 05.12.01, so please, help me.

From BRAZIL, Nikolas.

February 11, 2010 at 12:50 AM


February 11, 2010 at 1:03 AM

they need to NOT release this. all you idiots that "accidentally" updated to 3.1.3 deserve what you get. it's not like accidentally clicking something. it's a process that you must go through step by step. you knew what you were doing. maybe this time you learned a lesson? probably not though.

shafiq khan
February 11, 2010 at 1:33 AM

Nice news..........
sharrief abdulhashim and Dav team great work thanks for helping us but don't make us wait release it. many iphones are waiting for unlock.

February 11, 2010 at 1:43 AM

please release an unlock! i got tricked into updating to 3.1.3 by claims that Sn0wbreeze worked on the redmond pie website. i managed to roll back to 3.1.2, but i still have the baseband version of 05.12.01 and no way to revert that.

please, please don't anyone else fall for Sn0wbreeze.

February 11, 2010 at 2:11 AM

not of us r idiots ...some of us just got our iphones and started off with 3.1.3 05.12.01 and were never jailbroken

February 11, 2010 at 2:13 AM

nice to hear someone is working on it I wont have to wait too long, thanks in advance

February 11, 2010 at 2:22 AM

February 11, 2010 at 3:17 AM

February 11, 2010 at 3:50 AM

please relaise now and i donate you 30 euro please!!!

February 11, 2010 at 3:55 AM

apple sucks, I got a contractless phone, which worked for 24 hours, and now the damn phone doesn't work because I upgraded it to 3.1.3. Apple Sucks. It should have never sold the phone without a contract. The Iphone Sucks. I will recommend any body to buy an iphone..there are better ones available in the market.

February 11, 2010 at 4:22 AM

Tried everything with 3.1.2 and earlier, wouldn't fix my crashed iPhone. Now I'm stuck with a locked and therefore completely useless 3.1.3 iPhone. PLEASE release this asap!

February 11, 2010 at 5:08 AM

iphone sucks!!!!!! nahhhhhhh its other way around lol iphone is de best at number one spot

February 11, 2010 at 5:26 AM

iphone is the best phone ever created but it sucks when its unlockable.why do apple need to sell iphones with Legit sim card only?..i know they have these targets on which people should use iphones but well thanks to the help of these iphones hackers like geo hot.the sales increased but still apple remains not to produce unlock phones that can be use with all types all carriers..
im stuck with 3.1.3 & baseband 5.12.01 & guess i need to wait for the official jailbreak & unlocks..no such thing can downgrade my bootloader.lmao..to Geo Hot,Dev Team etc..u guys are our only hope.There are thousands of iphone users rely on u guys.

February 11, 2010 at 6:13 AM

We are really need it!

all of us are stuck in this 3.1.3 and all our information is invisible
we can not wait until the 4G
Please help

February 11, 2010 at 7:21 AM

We can not in any way to wait for 4G! Please do not do it!

February 11, 2010 at 7:52 AM

The way I look at it, apple signs with AT&T to give them exclusivity. at the same time they make the iphone easy to hack, so there will be always a demand for it outside of AT&T users. AT&T and out of network users, win win for apple

February 11, 2010 at 8:06 AM

The iphone isnt just an ordinary phone it completey took it not to the next level but several other levels past that. People, like myself, get so attached to thier iphone rather it being a legit sim or not its the iphone we want. And for apple to come out with upgrades to prevent us from using thier product its just not fair. Regardless of what sim we use we still had to pay for the damn thing. Apple still made their money. So Please Release The Unlock So We Can Use Our Phones Again!!!!!!!! AND TO THE DEV TEAM AND GEO HOT AND ANY OTHER PEOPLE ASSOCIATED WITH CREATING JAILBREAKS AND UNLOCKS WE THANK YOU AND APPRECIATE EVERYTHING YOU DO FOR OUR IPHONE NEEDS!

February 11, 2010 at 8:33 AM

I understand both sides of the issue here but happen to have an iPhone that is currently only as good as an iPod Touch. It would be great if we could get the unlock sooner rather than later. I personally purchased a iPhone which was already upgraded so I had no chance to unlock it based on the current 06.04. Bootloader.

Any help would be appreciated!

February 11, 2010 at 8:37 AM


Please release it soon, there are so many people waiting for.....


February 11, 2010 at 11:24 AM

PLease release the app to unlock our 3G 3.1.3 5.12.01 here is another brother from Nicaragua in Central america!

February 11, 2010 at 11:26 AM

Your fault for updating, we can wait all we want.

February 11, 2010 at 1:28 PM

OMG please Sherif!! please Dev Team!!! I have lost a part of myself when I updated my firmware and BB via iTunes!! OMG I don't know how much longer i can go!! please release me from this prison!!! I will love you all forever!!

February 11, 2010 at 2:37 PM

hey, i am also stuck up with iphone 3g updated with 3.1.3 and now its dumb..pls release it @ the earliest. we all r waiting....

February 11, 2010 at 3:57 PM

Yes, a new firmware will take aprox 3 months to come...

February 11, 2010 at 4:06 PM

I feel you man.. ugh I heard they might even be waiting until 4G to release the exploit. That wait is just too brutally long and by the time 4G comes out why would we wanna keep our obsolete iPhones anyway? 4G will probably get hacked eventually. (everything does)

They should just release this exploit as soon as possible to help those who are stuck on 3.1.3 and put a freaking huge warning sign that says "DON'T UPDATE TO NEWER FIRMWARES!". Why bother waiting until 4G? Is the iPhone some sort of holy grail or something?

Everyone makes mistakes. It happens and I'm seriously sick of hearing people say: "Blah Blah, it's your own fault. Live with it. You didn't read the warnings. All that crap is very easy to say when you've got a working iPhone in your hands and it makes us feel like shitty. Put yourself in our shoes. We love the iPhone just as much as you.

Seriously, by the time the Devs release this exploit, Apple will probably find it before them and screw this one chance up. I'm done with my rant. Have a nice day!

February 11, 2010 at 5:33 PM

pleeeaaz Saiidi Hashem and great The Iphone Dev Team. release it.. pleease.

Gud pless yeah'!!

February 11, 2010 at 10:53 PM

We are really need it!

all of us are stuck in this 3.1.3 and all our information is invisible
we can not wait until the 4G
Please help!!

February 12, 2010 at 12:05 AM

of course it's our fault, nobody says it's not! but this doesn't mean we don't want to use our iphones anymore!!

February 12, 2010 at 2:30 AM

Is the jailbreak tethered or untethered

February 12, 2010 at 3:06 AM

its not. you were just dumb enough to screw up ur iphone in upgrading it

February 12, 2010 at 4:45 AM

we NEED it sooooo BAD

February 12, 2010 at 5:35 AM

Mr Sherif Hashim

please i want asking you i did updata with ACCIDENT and now my iphone runing in os 3.1.3 and beseband 5.12.01 i know all sucks here from thet but i want asking you after we waiting are you sure dev team ect ect the will find way to actived any simcard and unlock the iphone please i want answaer

best regards and best wishs

February 12, 2010 at 6:07 AM

Please release the new jailbreak!!! Don't wait for the 4g release. Show Apple that no matter what they do to prevent us from jail breaking, Dev-Team will always be victorious.

Apple has a problem about trying to protect their product but for what? If is breaks you have to pay for it. No warranty. Apple needs to let it be. As long as us iphone AT&T customers pay their bills on time, we should be able to do what ever we want with the phone.

February 12, 2010 at 11:29 AM

Man I'm so sick of everyone saying "you upgraded to 3.1.3 (5.12.01) so it's our own fault" (Geohot's last tweet got me soooo angry!)..what about those of us that RECENTLY bought an iPhone and had NO CHOICE but to use the 3.1.3 firmware since Apple have already stopped verifying 3.1.2 firmware..how the hell is that our fault? As for the new exploit for 3.1.3 - great work but probably shouldn't say "3.1.3 05.12.01 baseband unlock IMMINENT" iPhone 4G is a minimum of three months away guys! Great work you have found an exploit...just not sure i can wait that long!!!!

February 12, 2010 at 11:33 AM

please dont let us wait :(

February 12, 2010 at 2:04 PM

Please release the new for iphone 3gs 3.1.3 baseband 5.12.01

February 12, 2010 at 2:38 PM

so many of us got caught on the 3.1.3 update. Seems like it was planned to take a lot of us out. I happened to sit my phone on a docking station and voila! got canned. Anyone hear of malware out there on Sony devices? Well we can only wait...and hope that quickly we can be back in the communicating world. I just disconnected house phone so am really stuck with no voice.
Did a jailbreak and got that done with snowbreeze but then discovered baseband was 6.02 and could not unlock wth ultrasnow. Could also not downgrade baseband. Now what? Just for the heck of it, tried to unlock anyway with blacksnow. Now have snowflake on screen and will not boot. hours and hours of fun....
Anyone have any success?????

I need this to work or its just a paper weight for me!!!! release it before the 4g and just make sure ppl know not to update after that! hahaha

February 12, 2010 at 4:00 PM

same here need to desperately liberate my iphone and start using it as it seems so dull as a dummy in my hand with a spare phone to make calls, God apple should be penalised for this.

February 12, 2010 at 5:06 PM

Dear .
Thank for all You done.But Please release it as soon as Posible.

February 13, 2010 at 1:11 AM

Well I'm glad that you are one of the people that is paying the developers money and supporting their houses so they can work full time on this and relase it on the time you want. Good job on sounding like they have to come up with something so you all mighty can use it for free and still complain about it

February 13, 2010 at 1:46 AM

Be positive ! at least we could use our fu**ed 3.1.3 Iphone as a toaster :D

February 13, 2010 at 3:02 AM

how much longer do we have to wait?? is there no other option to unlock your iphone with 5.9 baseband? fw 3.1.3 with the "no signal" fault ?????


February 13, 2010 at 3:35 AM

February 13, 2010 at 5:18 AM

hey!!! just cause you have more time using an iphone makes you no smarter than the rest of us... some of us only now are learning all the twists and turns... and apple was pretty sneaky...all one did was hit update and next thing u know the phone is blocked... if you have nothing productive to add shut up!!!

February 13, 2010 at 5:50 AM

pleasee release it i beg youuuuu mannnn

February 13, 2010 at 9:44 AM

February 13, 2010 at 10:39 PM

February 14, 2010 at 2:16 AM

i was forced to buy a compatible sim card today and now my Iphone works ..i tried to JB but in vain for now .. i will just wait and see

February 14, 2010 at 2:35 AM

bud... sometimes you can buy a iphone MONTHS later and still get one with 3.2.1.... what you think they do with the iphones with older firmware throw them out. jees,

February 14, 2010 at 4:02 AM

Only option you've is to turn back to original manufacutre setting.

February 14, 2010 at 4:31 AM

I have a brand new iPhone 3GS locked to fido if you want to trade I'd be happy to do so because I need the rogers version or the unlock which is currently not available.

February 14, 2010 at 6:24 AM

well my iphone 3gs is up for sale on craigslist.... all because i can't unlock it to use tmobile. i hate at&t ...i really didn't care about jailbreakng...i plan on getting the htc touch pro 2.

February 14, 2010 at 8:09 AM

February 14, 2010 at 8:23 AM

I hate apple I got lured into updating iPhone then when I tryed to jailbreak it agian I relised that bl4ck ra1n and sn0w breeze don't work on 05.12.01 firmware so it looks like I'm not getting all those free apps anymore so depressing I wish someone will release a jailbreak for 3.1.3 on 05.12.01 firmware soon or I'm gonna cry.

February 14, 2010 at 12:19 PM

how many days..month.. wait for this unlock ... edhe a oshte shqiptar qeky qe e ka bo unlockin

February 14, 2010 at 5:06 PM

It is your fault, the fact that you obviously bought an iphone to hack and unlock is your fault, there are no guarantees with unlocking, if it was meant to be then Apple would do it from the start, Its a cat and mouse game and you've just been caught,

These guys do it off their own back and you moaning won't make it happen any quicker,

Ali Imam
February 14, 2010 at 8:45 PM

Hello every one I am also caught to update the iphone OS 3.1.3, if anybody found the unlock software let me know please. I am from Bangladesh.

February 14, 2010 at 10:11 PM

huh3, i miss u....
com'on, back up again...
im realy2 crazy now...

that guy
February 15, 2010 at 1:52 AM

I'm sure Dev-Team are working on this update for no other reason than for you to be able to talk to your beloved girl friend. It's just that, if they release it now for you, they'll have to go back and create a whole different means to unlock it for all the others that are waiting (im)patiently for a solution. It really must be tough for them to decide who to cater to...

February 15, 2010 at 6:58 AM

I love my iPhone seriously! And I agree that it's f#%•ing exploitation of consumer rights. But, why should we be loyal to apple? F#%• it let's use other products like the google phone........... Afterall it's been nick named the iPhone killer, and personally I can see why.

Mr Max
February 15, 2010 at 8:07 AM

My iphone 3gs was jailbroken, downloaded and installed an app from cydia. It brixed my iphone. Got stuck in a rebooting/shutdown/rebooting loop.

Had to restore phone. I got screwed too. I have to sit and wait. I personally think it will be a long time before the break it out.

Mr Max
February 15, 2010 at 8:12 AM

What if the Iphone 4G can't be jailbroken?? then we all wasted our time waiting, and why wait for the new Iphone to come out and program a jailbreak why there are millions of 2G and 3G and 3GS users out there and the 4G will have only a few users. I am sure less then 10% of Iphone users will dump their current phones and run out and buy a 4G.

Maybe if there is an upgrade on your cell plane, but still the upgrade wont be free, unless you bought a NEW 3GS within 30 days of the 4G release, whenever that happens. And it could be weeks, months, or years away.

Just jailbreak the 3.1.3 05.12.01 and move on with other things please.

February 15, 2010 at 10:51 AM

HEY EVERYONE i am trying to unlock and possibly jailbreak 3g 8gig iphone that has 3.0 firmware. i want to unlock it for someone to use in russia with a different sim card.Now the problem is i dont have access to there itunes only my own and i cannot sync it to my computer so is there any software that will easily either upgrade to 3.1.2 firmware so i can use my blackra1n software or just unlock/jailbreak the 3.0 firmware ..i tried blackra1n but that did not work the phone wanted me to connect it to itunes and the blackra1n screen did not show up. please help someone with links or whateveer info you can supply i need to do this by tuesday evening...my e-mail ebart84@gmail.com

February 15, 2010 at 12:04 PM

for all you ppl who updated to 3.1.3 you can downgrade the firmware to 3.1.2 and unlock it with black rain

February 15, 2010 at 3:58 PM

All u spoil'd ass douche bags and fag hags, who probably got mommy n daddy 2 pay 4 your precious iphones and evrythg else u bitch n moan about need 2 shove those silver spoons back down your throats. Boo hoo. Boo Fu+#in Hoo. So u don't have your phone 4 a week or so. WEll damn I cant imagine what that must be like when theres dozens of thousands of people dead, dieing and lost, starving in Haiti. But, I bet your lives are all hotter than haiti having 2 live w no phone! There's millions of women raped in the congo and mutilated 4 absolutely nothing. A shitload of folks probly younger than most of u reading this away from their families 2 kill or be killed 4 the sake of their countries! Any of us could easily b victims of what I just mentioned...so, go head...on with the oh so life altering, earth shaking, ground breaking issues of our i phones.
I hope they do wait FOREVER (even tho it effects me 2, i'd b happy 2 sacrifice) so u schmucks can hear the word "NO" 4 the 1st time in ur sorry lil lives. What a waste of skin.

February 15, 2010 at 8:30 PM

I updated my phone by accident and really need it unlocked. Only had it since xmas and am getting really annoyed at having a contract with voda and buying credit and simcard for o2

February 16, 2010 at 2:54 AM

Listen you assclowns...stop buggin the Dev team and all these folk who are trying to gte the JB/Unlock to work. They dont owe you anything so stop whining like little brats. If they want to wait until OS 4.0 is out, so be it. Im annoyed with little runt shits like you who cry and cry..grow up you little piles of sheep scrotums.

February 16, 2010 at 3:57 AM

Before blaming people on an IPhone forum .. go instruct yourself how to use Internet and write good english

I bought my Iphone 620€ and now what ? shall i stop waiting and go to Haiti or elsewhere to help ? ahemm

jose b
February 16, 2010 at 9:24 AM

we should give them the dev team & geohotz more donations .....they deserve it for what they've done in letting us use our iphones. we just gotta sitback and let them do what they do best and are not even supposed to do.

February 16, 2010 at 12:35 PM

why dont you ppl just downgrade it to 3.1.2 its not that hard ill tell you guys how to if you want

February 16, 2010 at 2:04 PM

can you please post instructions on how to downgrade to 3.1.2

February 16, 2010 at 2:30 PM

download the 3.1.2 ipsw file from the link below, save it to somewhere you will remember, like your desktop. open itunes and go to the devices tab and click on you device, next if you are on a mac hold the alt key and press restore, to pop-up will appear and go to the place where you saved the file and click on the ipsw file. if you are on a pc do the same thing but press control instead of alt


for this tab there are three download links, choose the one that matches your iphone model

February 16, 2010 at 2:31 PM

cause even if you downgrade your baseband will not downgrade and that what you need to downgrade for the unlock and unfortunatly fuzzyband only seems to work wit a handfull of iphones

February 16, 2010 at 3:41 PM

Will not work. Message says "Software is not compatible with
this iPhone". It does this after verifying software stage
b4 installing. If you use snitch or disconnect it (iTunes 903) will simply stop the install and say "unable to verify"

February 16, 2010 at 10:37 PM

Hi all could someone please tell me if it will be possible to downgrade my iphone just for jailbreaking purposes only. I have no need to unlock only to jailbreak. I am fairly new to all this. I have had my 3gs 16gb iphone for a few weeks and installed itunes and not realising i upgraded the firmware to 3.1.3 and the baseband to 05.12.01. I have read conflicting stories regarding issues with upgrading and need to know if i downgrade will i be able to JAILBREAK ONLY. Many Thanks

February 16, 2010 at 11:41 PM

I updated to 3.1.3 and haven't been able to downgrade to 3.1.2. I get an error that says this iphone is not eligible for the current build (3.1.2) I also used the tutorial where you add gs.apple.com via the command line to the host file and I'm still unable to downgrade.

Does anyone have a solution to this? please email me at donovanroddy [@] mac.com


February 16, 2010 at 11:44 PM

Doesn't work Bobby.

February 17, 2010 at 12:46 AM

If you have done the upgrade to 3.1.3 and it's upgraded the baseband you cant go back to 3.1.2.

You will just get the error on itunes.

February 17, 2010 at 3:29 AM

iPhone 3.1.3. 05.12.15 jailbroken, not unlocked 3g,16gb selling for 270 if ne 1 untreated

February 17, 2010 at 6:27 AM

how do you downgrade? i keep getting a error 1600 code. i am trying to use snow to downgrade

February 17, 2010 at 6:29 AM

did you get a reply? i am also not able to download 3/1/2. keep getting error code 1600

February 17, 2010 at 6:54 AM

Did you download on a 3gs because that is what I have?

February 17, 2010 at 7:15 AM

Who cares about those people? Their lives do not effect mine. However this does.

February 17, 2010 at 9:11 AM

Dear Apple iPhone users,

The need of unlocking your basebands on iPhones seem highly requested by iPhone owners. However, I would like to announce that we will be updating the iPhone 2G, 3G and 3GS basebands with every OS update.
Good news, the upcoming Apple iPhone is due June and 4G compatiable, dont know the official name, and its going to have new hardware to stop the iPhone hacking teams exploiting our devices. So this means no Jailbreak and no baseband unlock.
Ha now lets see what the iPhone hackers have to say.

February 17, 2010 at 12:13 PM

Apple sux, that's all there is to it. FUK em I am selling my brand new 3GS and moving on.

February 17, 2010 at 12:20 PM

I have no idea why Apple wants to sell stuff that is locked to begin with. That mentality is the reason that there are 10000 PC's for every Mac out there.

Apple may find that no one flocks to their stores to buy a shiny 4G POS that has been crippled permanently at the factory. I know I won't be in that queue.

February 17, 2010 at 12:22 PM

ya i probably should have tested that, it worked downgrading from 3.1.2 to 3.0 maybe it will work going to 3.0

February 17, 2010 at 12:27 PM

wow you guys suck so bad... but i am surprised that an apple person would stoop low enough to post on a website like this. whatever you couldn't stop the unlocking after with the 3g or the 3gs so i doubt you will stop it for long with the 4g either

February 17, 2010 at 2:26 PM

its almost like they just wanna piss us off

February 17, 2010 at 3:34 PM


February 17, 2010 at 6:28 PM

I wonder what mStiXX is doing reading this forum if they have no concern about the Iphone. Is their life really so drab that they have to read a forum that clearly enrages them, just so they make an attempt at being insulting?

February 17, 2010 at 9:37 PM

Whatever has been locked by a coder, can be broken by another coder. Even if the new 4G proves to be difficult for our beloved hackers. It will not be impossible, it'll probably just take a little longer to break.

February 17, 2010 at 11:10 PM

Because he forgot to mention you need to edit your HOSTS file to reroute requests to the Apple server to Saurik's server. Plus this only works if you've saved your IPSW in Cydia beforehand.

February 18, 2010 at 2:07 AM

You have to copy the 3.1.2 ipsw file to C:\Users\your folder\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates.
Make shure to delete the 3.1.3 file if there is any in that folder.
Change the apple ip addres in hosts folder to the recomended one (read forums).
I`ve got the 1605 error but did not bother it.
Carried on and used blackra1n and it worked fine.
Make shure to put the blackra1n program in the C:\.
This only downgrades and make it jailbroken, NOT unlockt!!
For now, you can continue to use your ipone with wifi or the origin operator ex: telia, telenor and 3.

February 18, 2010 at 3:30 AM

Why wait for the iPhone 4? Apple in a major upgrade should discover and patch that exploit... and after wait for months we could have nothing, not even the 3.1.3 unlock.

But I understand the point of view.

Hope you change your ideas, there are lots of people waiting for that unlock and jailbreak, not only the people that upgrades but the people that buys as well.


February 18, 2010 at 8:24 AM

Dear bobby,

Apple will make/has made the new hardware unhackable.

February 18, 2010 at 8:32 AM

people will be buying theshiny iPhone 4G because of its mind freezing features.

February 18, 2010 at 8:33 AM

Don't sell it, wait for the OS 4.0 its so gooooooooooooood. trust

February 18, 2010 at 8:44 AM

So we should all give up everything we own and be in shitty shape just like them....right. I don't see you changing your life....your sitting on a nice computer writing this bs right. Don't be a hypocrite. Your no better than anyone else, and you have no clue what other peoples lives are like. Who are you to judge other people you don't know? What makes you so special? Shut your mouth and go do something productive.

February 18, 2010 at 9:36 AM

wow you guys suck. i no that apple is much better then microsoft by far and your products are amazing but why do you guys have to make everything so expensive. i cant afford a contract for an iphone its way too much the people who unlock this stuff are doing it because apple only lets rich people get there stuff

February 18, 2010 at 10:21 AM

can anyone say for sure that as february 18 6:30 pm 2010, is there a software that will unlock and jailbrake the firmware 3.1.3 / 5.12.01 for sure, any one

February 18, 2010 at 11:20 AM

Dear bobby,

I understand your concerns. One reason why Apple marketing is expensive is because the product is made of high quality materials and the Operating System of all Apple products are fast, secure and reliable. compare our products to Microsoft's products. Which is better ?

O and about 5-6 weeks ago some staff were talking about making a Apple gaming console in a meeting, but it got rejected. Anyway I can't be making so many posts here, and I do hope that all Apple consumers will help us continue our success in innovation.

Any questions just e-mail me at my new E-mail address taht is not relevent to me at all :) barbastb@yahoo.com

February 18, 2010 at 12:16 PM


There will be at least one extra shiny POS on the shelf for anyone dumb enough to spend their money on a crippled unit, because I'm not supporting this trash anymore.

There are too many smart people with good ideas and great phones and good business models for Apple to behave like they have a monopoly. It's a decent unit, and an excellent one when jailbreak is applied.

Apple doesn't realize how much business the jailbreak guys are bringing them. It is really amusing to see you trying to gloat when you think they've finally killed the goose that lays golden eggs. In a way, I hope you are right. Apple will then be relegated to the trash heap of good products combined with bad business models.

Although I won't be buying another iPhone, I may buy some popcorn for the show.


February 18, 2010 at 12:23 PM

iphone freezed on me i try using backra1n to boot it back up even with that it kept freezing. i tried to restore it back to 3.1.2 it had to be verify with apple i kept getting error iphone cant be restored. i downloaded 3.1.3 and try restoring allowed me but i unplugged after the verify with apple passed. i try restoring it again with 3.1.2 and still i didnt allow me to only way out was to update =(

February 18, 2010 at 3:18 PM

I guess I don't understand why it matters to apple whether I can unlock it. Didn't they make their money somewhere when the phone was sold in the first place. They make more money from us using an iphone and downloading things from itunes for it.

February 18, 2010 at 4:18 PM

wow this really sucks i was trying to unlock my iphone to work with safaricom in kenya (gsm) but i accidentally upgraded to the 3.1.3 software. How long do you think it will be until the dev team comes up with a solution?

February 18, 2010 at 4:40 PM

@ John,

Don't sing it big boy, bring it! I'll show you just how clever we all are on the "dark side" brother!

February 18, 2010 at 6:44 PM

share me link to buy it

February 18, 2010 at 8:41 PM

That wont work. That didnt downgrade the baseband. My Iphone has been unlocked for a while now, i have been waiting for the unlock for 3.1.3 05.12.10. Feels crazy, i love my iphone so much.

Labied rachid
February 18, 2010 at 9:14 PM

i've got the solution fot 3.1.3 firmware "jealbreak" software redsnow linked with firmware 3.1.2 that will jailbreak firmware 3.1.3
there is an application "buzzfuzz" that can unlock yore Iphone, (but not with Baseband 05.12.01) there is an other solution solution for SSH intergrated solution wit a Script that boots the port trouch the rom in the iphone that enables the ports that locked with 3.1.3 you can overcross this with 3.1.2 script load troug ssh and reboot youre iphone automatickly to an unlock iphone.

February 18, 2010 at 10:06 PM

Apple have beaten them this time.
There is NO UNLOCK and never will be. Sell your iphone now.
If there was an unlock, it would be released, they would not wait in case it was patched again. Bollo#ks.
If there was an unlock now for baseband 5.12.01 we would use it and just not update from apple anymore.
The so-called unlockers especially the Sherrif are talking through a hole in their ass.
Please stop waiting for an unlock as they will never beat us this time.
Mikey @ Apple

February 18, 2010 at 10:39 PM

Many thanks for your reply, not what i wanted to hear. Oh well we all live and learn. Gutted

February 19, 2010 at 12:55 AM

my iphone 3gs 3.1.3 is update and then locked
please any software solution
contact: chandny2009@gmail.com

February 19, 2010 at 1:04 AM

i'm from india

February 19, 2010 at 3:05 AM

@ john: well when the new iphone comes out they will definatly find a way to jailbreak it because it will have to be like the iphones now, you would have to update your firmware with itune. and if you can update the firmware you could probably create a custom firmware with like snowbreeze or something and just call it the apple software to trick the iphone into thinking its runnin offical iphone software.

apple just doesnt seem to get it of course people are going to buy the new iphone because it the new iphone. but alot of the pervious iphone owners will probably not buy the new iphone due to the amount of trouble that apple has given us and the trouble that will come with it.

February 19, 2010 at 5:01 AM

any news yet about the 5.12.01 unlocker? or we hae been permanently doomed?
