Written By Sam on 12 November 2009

Earlier we have covered about “Download PwnageTool 3.1.4 to Jailbreak iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS With iPhone OS 3.1.2” and also “How to Jailbreak iPhone 3GS and 3G With 3.1.2 Firmware Using PwnageTool 3.1.4“. Once you have jailbroken your iPhone you can “Unlock iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G with 3.1.2 Firmware Using Ultrasn0w“. But after you have unlocked your iPhone with ultrasn0w you should have observed the missing carrier name or logo on the top left side of the status bar. The iPhone Dev-Team has recently released an updated version of ultrasn0w that fixes the issues for those running firmware 3.1.x with the 04.26 baseband.


The latest version of ultrasn0w, ultrasn0w 0.92 should only be used to unlock iPhone 3G and 3GS running on iPhone OS 3.1.2 with baseband v04.26.08. Do remember that if you have upgraded your baseband to 05.11.07, you cannot use ultrasn0w to unlock your iPhone.

Procedure to Update UltraSn0w to Latest Version

If you have already installed the older version of ultrasn0w, you can update to the latest version very easily. To get ultrasn0w 0.92 just select “Modify” button on the top right and then click “Upgrade”. Once you have clicked update, just restart your iPhone. Once you have restarted your iPhone you will have ultrasn0w 0.92 installed and your iPhone will be unlocked and shows the proper carrier name or logo.

If you don’t have ultrasn0w installed then follow the below procedure.

  1. Open up “Cydia” on your iPhone and under the “Manage” section select “Sources”.
  2. Now touch on “Edit” and then click on “Add”. Enter the Cydia URL as “” and press “Add Source”.

  4. Cydia will automatically update the sources. Once the sources are updated, click on the newly added musclenerd source and select UltraSn0w to install.
  5. The latest version 0.92 of ultrasn0w  will unlock your iPhone and also fixes the carrier logo/name issue.

As I have already told, ultrasn0w can only be used to unlock iPhone with 04.26.08 baseband. If you have an iPhone with 3.1.2 Firmware and 05.11.07 baseband then read the below guides.
