We had reported yesterday that Blacksn0w, an extremely popular tool to unlock iPhone for iPhone OS 3.1.3 and iPhone OS 3.1.2 had been successfully ported to work with the latest beta version of iPhone OS 4.0 and baseband 05.11.07.
However, since it worked only with baseband 05.11.07, it meant that users who had accidentally upgraded to iPhone OS 3.1.3 or iPhone OS 4.0 (when it is released) will not be able to unlock their iPhone.
It also meant that users who bought an iPhone with the latest iPhone OS (iPhone OS 3.1.3 or later) won’t be able to use Blacksn0w to unlock their iPhone.
MuscleNerd from the iPhone Dev Team has just tweeted some good news for users who fall in this category:
People still ask, but sure, with both 4.0 & iPhoneHD coming out this month, so too will the 3.1.3/4.0 carrier unlocks
So looks like they’ve managed to unlock baseband 05.12.01 that was bundled in iPhone OS 3.1.3 and also the new baseband 05.13.04 bundled in the latest beta version of iPhone OS 4.0 – iPhone OS 4.0 Beta 4.
