Unlock iPhone 3.1.3 Baseband 05.12.01 (Hardware Unlock)

Hardware Unlock for iPhone 3.1.3 Baseband 05.12.01 [Video]

There’s is a way to Unlock iPhone 3.1.3 Baseband 05.12.01 but it’s a hardware unlock. Folks from a Turkish shop have managed to successfully unlock iPhone Baseband 05.12.01. They have posted a video demonstration (posted below) on hardware unlock for iPhone 3G OS 3.1.3 with Baseband 05.12.01.

Update: UltraSn0w 0.93 is Out Now! It can unlock all basebands for iPhone 3GS and 3G. (Check the Updates at the bottom)

The Turkish Guy unlocked iPhone 3G 3.1.3 05.12.07 baseband by a hardware flash. He downgraded the baseband by flashing it back to 04.26.08.

Don’t get your hopes high, it’s a hardware level unlock that can’t be done by everyone. Wait for the Dev Team or GeoHot to come up with an unlock for baseband 05.12.01. The guy has also mentioned his phone number in the video so that you may contact him when visiting Istanbul, Turkey and want to unlock iPhone 3.1.3 baseband 05.12.01 :p. Check out the video:

AfRoo April 9, 2010, 7:24 pm

hey,, lnkedyouth
I am aready 3.1.3 with B-B 05.12.01
but wich version of redsnow (3.1.2 ipsw) I have to use
AND then where I can get fuzzyband is it in Cydia ??
..help me pls and let me pieeeeee lol

inkedyouth April 10, 2010, 1:48 am

download the original ipsw 3.1.2
use redsnow..it will modify the ipsw (3.1.2)
it will do its thing and install cydia
then search cydia for fuzzyband (there are two…one works)
fuzzyband will downgrade your baseband to 4.8 or 4.3
after the baseband reflash you will be good to go
with yellowsn0w for an unlock to your network

seriously bro ..took me ten minutes from update to 3.1.3

dont know what all the fuss is about…been doing it this way since 3.0 came out

if your really battling email me at

hey dude,, whatsup there,,,
I used redSn0w and it work nice but ooops when it done. my iphone got stuck in Black screen mood i powered it off then on but it’s the same 3.1.3 without Cydia , so what’s new with it Still I can’t Pieeee yet, lol

inkedyouth April 11, 2010, 2:14 pm

redsnow will ask you to to point out where your downloaded
3.1.2 ipsw is (must be original)…it will then modify it …then modify your current 3.1.3 firmware…all through redsnow

after that your iphone will be jailbroken and ready to use cydia for the baseband downgrade..with fuzzy band
