Working Exploit Found to Unlock iPhone 3.1.3 Firmware 05.12.01 Baseband

Written By Sam on 13 February 2010

New working Exploit has been found for the Baseband 05.12.01, by an iPhone hacker called Sheriff Hashim. Sheriff identified a promising crash in the new Baseband and as per the reports, he handed over the exploit to the most efficient iPhone Dev-Team. Though there are any ETA’s or promises from the Dev-Team, they have already started working upon porting this crash into a full unlock.

The iPhone Dev-Team confirmed that the exploit is working however they did not give any ETA on any information about the tool that will help unlocking iPhone 3.1.3 05.12.01 Baseband for iPhone 3G and 3GS. There are chances that the Dev-Team might not use this exploit for this minor update. The Dev team is also not speaking much about 05.12.01 unlock which indicate that the Dev-Team is planning to use this exploit for a major update such as iPhone 3.2 or iPhone 4.0 with the next-gen iPhone 4G, something which we have to watch out for!

Also be warned that currently there are no unlock tools for the iPhone 3.1.3 05.12.01 Baseband. So do stay away from the 3.1.3 firmware update if you own a iPhone 3GS/3G.
