05.12.01 Baseband Unlock Exploit on iPhone 3.1.3 Firmware Found by GeoHot?

Written By Sam on 21 February 2010

The latest iPhone 3.1.3 firmware will update the baseband of your iPhone to 05.12.01 and currently there are no tools to unlock your iPhone. So if you have accidentally updated your iPhone firmware to 3.1.3, here is a good news for you as GeoHot has tweeted a message which indicates that he had found a working exploit to unlock 05.12.01 baseband. But things are not really very clear and there is no further information or any ETA.

For safekeeping d8b50dc95d7906e3ff6155331a534b55d0f6cac1=good. And motorama this weekend!

Earlier we also wrote about Sheriff Hashim who found a new working Exploit to unlock Baseband 05.12.01. Sheriff identified a promising crash in the new Baseband and as per the reports, he handed over the exploit to the most efficient iPhone Dev-Team. The iPhone Dev-Team confirmed that the exploit is working however they also did not give any ETA or any other information about the tool that will help unlocking iPhone 3.1.3 05.12.01 Baseband for iPhone 3G and 3GS.

It is also not very clear that if the exploits found by both of them are different. But there are chances that the 05.12.01 unlock is just around the corner, either by GeoHot or the Dev Team. There is also a possibility that GeoHot and Dev-Team is planning to use this exploit for a major update such as iPhone 3.2 or iPhone 4.0 with the next-gen iPhone 4G, something which we have to watch out for!

    I’m desperate… I bought my iphone 3gs 3 weeks ago and at the same day I jailbreak it and upgrade it.

    I am not familiar with apple. I am a windows kind of person so I didn’t know better. It’s not fair, there was no way for me to know.
    I was willing to give money to unlock but after some research I read that these are scam sites so I didn’t.

    Unfortunately I didn’t do any research before updating, but at the time I had no reason to.
    I never expected that something like this could happen because I was clueless 🙁

    I managed to roll back to 3.1.2 but as you know the baseband is still on 05.12.01

    Please unlock 🙁
