Why to hold off an unlock for baseband 05.12.01 OS 3.1.3, when the newer firmware will bring newer baseband?? Answer is, dev-team want to test the same exploit on iPhone 4G OS 4.0 and if it worked, it’ll the best thing ever happened in iPhone hacking world and if it doesn’t, we shall have PwnageTool to safely update to OS 4.0 while preserving baseband at 05.12.01.

If you’re waiting for OS 3.1.3 baseband 05.12.01 unlock, make sure not to upgrade to OS 4.0 unless Dev-team confirms an unlock for OS 4.0 baseband and those with older firmwares also avoid OS 3.1.3 unless unlock for baseband 05.12.01 comes out.

There are several web sites offers unlock 100 % with payment for 5.12.01. Is there anyone tried already?

iPhoneHeat June 11, 2010, 11:43 pm

Those are FAKE!

mpnoon June 12, 2010, 3:13 am

today is 6/11/2010, and is there any hope for unlock the new baseband?
What if I open my idevice and replae the modem part, so that I can unlock it afterward ? And, where can I buy a modem part for iphone 3gs ?

nk60 June 12, 2010, 8:54 am

wait a bit more. rumor says that will be a release for 5.12.01 when 4 comes out (june 24th) its worth it to wait a bit more, u can jailbreak it but NOT unlock it. i JB mine 3.1.3 3GS 5.12.01 very with spirit (and i save the SHSH files just in case) but not unlock yet.

Vegeta June 14, 2010, 2:18 am

*waiting patiently* 4g is already mass produced why do we need to wait longer. I hope that its not all BS and really is comming. Its going to feel like christmas if it does come out.

daopow June 14, 2010, 1:08 pm

Why is there an unlock for 3gs iOS 4 with baseband 5.11 and not 3gs 3.1.3 baseband 5.12? Does that mean that all 3gs phones have to upgrade to the iOS 4 in order to unlock them?

iPhoneHeat June 14, 2010, 2:34 pm

it’s for those using custom firmware to update their firmware since OS 3.1.2.. Custom firmware updates your firmware only but preserves your baseband..

sahil June 14, 2010, 3:38 pm

is there any other solution instead of waiting for the 5.12.01 to be released!!!and if NO then can you give us a estimate of the date of its release???

AfRoo June 15, 2010, 2:09 am

Oh gosh ya and all of yea guys stop shitting all of au knew that iPhoneheat is helper crew so they won’t give u any date cus already the unlocker tool will out after iPhone 4 and the guys like dev team or who ever just won’t show the world any thing cus apple might change the date to fix the mistake in ios4 so plss keep holding on and stop pooping and asking stuped quastion cus no help before iPhone 4 come out. Peace out and thanks for ur times

Klint June 14, 2010, 11:26 pm

An other day, another disappointment. Any word on when the 5.12.01 unlock will be released? This waiting is killing me. I’m sure I’m not the only one

pink princess June 15, 2010, 9:33 pm

launch of the new unlock is the 14.6.2010. have been waiting since January for this, I’m just tired of waiting as you are folks.

itech June 21, 2010, 10:19 pm

Why being so anxious. I know the wait is killing evertbody, but if waiting months did not kill us, few days definetely can’t me. I don’t know about u. Let be positive and wait. The day is almost here.

-T June 21, 2010, 3:09 am


the unlock was supposed to be released today(20Jun), no? Or has it been pushed back?

iPhoneHeat June 21, 2010, 6:54 pm

for 3GS and 3G it’s expected soon after iOS 4.0 availability which in anytime today.. If not..
then expect all jailbreak and unlock tools availability soon after the iPhone 4 launch on June 24th

Papabey June 23, 2010, 8:22 am

Just to let you know guys that I have unlocked my Iphone 3G Baseband 05.12.01 simply by running the updated version of ‘repo666.ultrasn0w.com’ via Cydia as my phone – funny I finally call the brick a phone – was already jailbroken.

Thanks to all the guys that work on this

Kari27 September 4, 2010, 8:15 am

My 3gs iphone is still on the 3.1.3 version with the 5.12.1 firmware. Can I update it to the 4.0 version now? And still have it be unlocked, or do i have to download the new unlock for the 4.0 system- is it even out yet?

greencat September 5, 2010, 11:33 am

Kari27, if you update your firmware you will need to jailbreak & unlock again. iTunes will auto update to 4.0.2 at the moment and I don’t know if that version patches the exploit. So here’s what you do:
Download 4.0 and install on phone (hold shift when you press restore in iTunes and select 4.0 which you have downloaded).
Jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.5
Unlock with ultrasn0w by adding the source from http:\\repo666.ultrasn0w.com in Cydia as before.

Jackal_xxx June 22, 2010, 8:17 pm

Woohoo, unlock your iPhone 3.1.3 baseband 5.12.01 now available in the unlock section, just unlocked my 3G on T-Mobile UK! You guys are the masters!

greencat June 23, 2010, 5:25 am

This is good news! So… can anyone help.. I’m stuck at ‘Connect to iTunes’ screen 3.1.3 05.12.01 baseband. Spirit jailbreak requires phone to be activated. Will RedSn0w 0.9.5 b5-3 jailbreak & hacktivate this version? Or should I upgrade to iOS 4.0 and try it then? Very afraid to update my baseband further in case nothing works again!!! Anyone know?
