iPhone 4 owners who rely on a software unlock via Dev Team’s ultrasn0w must know that 1.59.00 is currently the only unlockable baseband on iPhone 4. But now, baseband hacker @sherif_hashim has pushed an update (via Twitter) about his ongoing work on iPhone 4?s locked baseband firmwares which also include the baseband 4.11.08. He also mentioned about his previous exploit which didn’t work out because of some technical issues.
Here is what he had to say:
“It would be greatly appreciated NOT to post regarding iOS related issues/unlock/…etc , and for those whom are still concerned YES i am still working on the VERY TIGHT bbfw 2.10-4.11 (i m taking that personal) after my -October 2010 found- vulnerabilities failed to achieve a payload injection vector despite the huge continuos trials and work done by the legendary @MuscleNerd, the great everlasting iOS hacker and guru, keeping in mind that there was a 10 months of halt due to the Egyptian revolution 🙂 , what i meant to say is that any new achievements -IF EVER POSSIBLE- regarding this issue will be notified either by this respectable iOS hacker or by the humble myself, NO NEED to ask because it won’t make it achievable/earlier/easier. Thanks a lot for taking time to read this.”
This is great news especially for those who are stuck with baseband 4.11.08 on their iPhone 4 because unlike other basebands such as 2.10.00, 3.10.1 and 4.10.1, there is no way to unlock it right now even with the Gevey SIM.
