It is really hard to factory unlock activated iPhone on iOS 6.0.1 or 6 after using SAM unlocking solution but it is possible and I’ll show you how to do that.
Here I describe the method that I performed when I tried to officially unlock my device via iTunes after using SAM. In my previous post I showed you the best way to unlock iPhone using SAM on iOS 6. After this article many iPhone users factory unlocked their devices. But there was one problem after restore with iPhone activation after factory unlock. iTunes didn’t detect iPhone.
If you accidentally or deliberately update your device to the latest iOS version you need to unlock iPhone 4 running fresh iOS 6.0.1 on 04.12.02 baseband. Here is a guide on how to do it in the best way and enjoy permanently unlocked iPhone.
If you look at iOS 6.0.1 unlocking methods you will see that there is only the one method that can help you with current baseband. Unfortunately, it is paid. Of course you can use SAM if you have all needed things for this tool. Let’s see what we can do with SAM.
If you have Activation tickets which had been saved before Apple closed exploit last Spring you are very lucky guy. If you haven’t these tickets than SAM tool is not for you buddy. But even if you have some you need untethered jailbreak having only tethered iOS 6.0.1 jailbreak which you can perform now.
Today I will show you how to use TinyUmbrella 6.01.00 to save iOS 6.0.1 SHSH blobs on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, iPad mini and iPad 4 to have the possibility to downgrade future iOS to iOS 6.0.1. If you need to downgrade iOS 6.0.1 to iOS 6 (5.1.1) you can use this link but only if you have needed SHSH blobs for this.
Next, I describe how to create a firmware with stitched iOS 6.0.1 SHSH blobs for any device including iPad Mini and iPad 4. You need this because if your iPhone will be updated to iOS 6.1 or higher you will be able always to downgrade it to iOS 6.0.1.
Experts in the field of computer security of Core Security found that such gadgets from Apple as iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 2 as well as older models of smartphones and tablets of several other manufacturers, including Samsung, HTC, Motorola have vulnerabilities in Broadcom chip that an attacker can use to block functioning of wireless networks on device.
This iPhone security vulnerability exists due to an error in the “incoming validation” in the firmware of two iPhone Broadcom chips – BCM4325 and BCM4329. According to experts, it is really serious bug, because it allows to disable the wireless network on the device at the time of the DDoS-attack. In turn, this error can be used as a platform for a high-level attacks.
Developers of informal applications for jailbroken iPhones, msft.guy and zmaster, announced the release of new version of Ultrasn0w fixer for 6.0 to unlock iOS 6 on iPhone 3GS and 4. There are phones which are tied to a contract with the cellular operator so, you need to jailbreak it and than to unlock it.
If you don’t use Ultrasn0w because your baseband is not old the only way to unlock iOS 6 is using IMEI unlocking service. It is paid method but it worth it, so you can choose it right now and don’t mess with any Ultrasn0w and jailbreak software.
It almost half and a month passed after new iOS had been released. But many iPhone users can’t update their gadgets to the new iOS firmware because they know that baseband will be updated too and they will lose unlock, so here you will find out how to upgrade iPhone to iOS 6 and preserve baseband for using previous unlocking solution.
Earlier update from iPhone Dev team brought many new long awaited features. You can update, re-restore, jailbreak and unlock your iPhone using new options in new Redsn0w 0.9.15b1. Yesterday I showed you how to jailbreak iOS 6 using Redsn0w 0.9.15b1 and today I got good news for those who use unlocked iPhone and want to update it to iOS 6 but afraid of losing unlock. Finally Redsn0w 0.9.15b1 can do it and I will show you how.
Well well well, something new appeared on the horizon. Lately, we hear only about IMEI unlocking solution for iPhone 4S running iOS 6 but a few days ago I found out that there was a new way to unlock baseband 3.0.04 on iPhone 4S and that was X-SIM.
X-SIM team have developed something that has not yet been made by anyone else on SIM unlock market. iOS 6 was beaten not by Gevey Sim but X-SIM team.
There is great possibility to install Siri on iOS 6 and I will show how to do it here. You can use specially updated SiriPort for the new iOS from Apple. Installing this package you will have a chance to use Siri on Apple iPhone 4 and iPod touch operating on the new OS.
Few months ago I showed you how to install SiriPort on iOS 5.1.1 A4 devices and now update for SiriPort 6 (Original) was released together with iOS 6 release and you can use it to install Siri on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G and 3G after jailbreak. After installing you will get not only Siri GUI, but also your device will be connecting to Apple servers every time you ask something Siri. SiriPort package is free and you can download it from Cydia sources.
I’m sure that all iPhone users who updated its device to iOS 6 found a lot of new feature there. And it is not a sin to enjoy all of them. But what you should do if you used to Gevey Sim unlock for 04.12.01 baseband or Ultrasn0w unlocking tool for 01.59.00 baseband on iPhone 4. It is not a secret that there is no Gevey Sim for iOS 6 or Ultrasn0w available.
Well, there is one way to downgrade iOS 6 04.12.02 baseband to 04.12.01 / 01.59.00 if you fulfill all requirements given below. And listen to my advice: DO IT quickly because there is the information that Apple will close APTicket and SHSH blobs exploits and make iOS downgrade impossible.
After 3 years of iPhone 3GS production we will close it in the near future. We can do nothing because that’s just the way it is. Repeatedly appeared information that the iPhone 3GS production is coming to an end and after the iPhone 5 announcement the 3GS selling will be stopped. After all this is not surprising, don’t forget that Apple has been producing iPhone 3GS for three years. It is reasonable to assume that iPhone 4 8GB will replace the current iPhone budget model.
