Only few days ago I showed you all tips and tricks on how to unlock iOS 6 firmware and now the turn came for 6.0.1.

It is great that Apple payed attention on bugs in iOS 6 and decided to release iOS 6.0.1. The new version brought nothing special, only some improvements (now you can use over the air update on iPhone 5) and bug fixes like horizontal lines on the keyboard, camera issues, WiFi connection problems and more.

You will be able to enjoy all these features with one condition, when your phone will be unlocked. If you are looking to find some new unlocking solution for iOS 6.0.1 I have to disappoint you. There is still the same method as SAM, Gevey, Ultrasn0w. Also there is the best method know as IMEI unlocking method.

iOS 6.0.1 Unlock Methods

SAM Unlock

You can always unlock iOS 6.0.1 or any other iOS using SAM tool but only if you have backed up Activation ticket. With this ticket SAM is the best free unlocking solution in our days. There are still many those who are using SAM tool on their devices, especially those who have those tickets. So if you don’t have activation ticket forget about iOS 6.0.1.

In case you have it just use latest redsn0w and jailbreak iOS 6.0.1. Then add this Cydia repo:

Then Install SAM on iPhone 4, 4S , 3GS and replace Activation ticket. The detailed guide on how to do that you can use from iOS 6 SAM unlock tutorial.

Gevey SIM and Ultrasn0w Unlock

Well there is the only one Gevey Ultra S for 3.0.04 baseband on iPhone 4S. If your iPhone’s modem firmware is 3.0.04 then you can easily to order this SIM at ApplenBerry company. But if your device features another baseband then stay away from the update. But it is confirmed that iOS 6.0.1 baseband on iPhone 4s is 3.0.04.

As for Ultrasn0w here is the same situation. All depends on baseband version on your device. iPhone 3GS can be unlocked but not 05.16.08. Only iPhone 3GS old bootrom and baseband:

  • 04.26.08
  • 05.11.07
  • 05.13.01
  • 05.12.01
  • 06.15.00

As for iPhone 4 you will be able to unlock only 01.59.00 with Ultrasn0w. So if you update your device to iOS 6.0.1 baseband 04.12.02 you will not be able to unlock it.

Also you need to know that there is no Ultrasn0w for iOS 6 or iOS 6.0.1 from iPhone Dev team. You can only use Ultrasn0w fixer for 6.0.1 by adding repo:

and install it on your device.

Note: I have just recently found warning to not update your device to iOS 6.0.1 if you use Ultrasn0w.
