Ok folks. 3 days after the WWDC 2012, we bring you the latest unlock news on the world’s most advanced operating system — iOS 6. This will answer the queries of whether to update to the iOS 6 or not.
The most asked questions are coming from the jailbreakers and those who have to unlock their iPhones. Let’s start with baseband. There is no info yet whether the iOS 6 will update your baseband.
However, it is likely. The recommended thing to do is waiting for updates for tools like Pwnage, sn0wbreeze and redsn0w so the custom iOS 6 IPSW can be created to preserve the baseband for future unlocking purposes.
Unlock iOS 6 with SAM Tickets
Before this becomes neglected, we must mention about the people who were able to unlock via SAM unlock tool. They shouldn’t update to the iOS 6, as it has no jailbreak. Although MuscleNerd was able to jailbreak his iPod Touch 4G tethered, it has many complications, and it will be long before an untethered one comes out. SAM Unlockers need to restore backed activation tickers via redsn0w or manually which requires an untethered jailbreak.

Unlock iOS 6 with Ultrasn0w
Coming to ultrasn0w, the latest version 1.2.7 managed to provide an unlock solution for iPhone 4 and 3GS users, but only for older basebands. These are the compatible basebands:
- iPhone 4 baseband 01.59.00
- iPhone 3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04 and 06.15.00.
If iOS 6 updates the basebands, than you can say adios to the unlock.
Gevey SIM to Unlock iOS 6 Beta
Talking about Gevey SIM, the users need a jailbroken iDevice to use it properly. So they shouldn’t update. ApplenBerry has released no official statement that when iOS 6 will be supported. Hopefully this would happen when iOS 6 is released publically.
Unlock iOS 5.1.1 With Ultrasn0w, SAM and Gevey SIM
Let’s be happy with what we have. Atleast iOS 5.1.1 can be unlocked. These are our few guides which can be used for the purpose:
- Unlock iOS 5.1.1 on Your Jailbroken iPhone 4 / iPhone 3GS / iPhone 4S
- To Unlock iPhone 4 with 4.11.08, 4.12.01 or 4.12.02 baseband you can use Factory unlock service.
- Use this service to Factory Unlock iPhone 5
Unlock iOS 6 Beta 4 Baseband 3.0.00 Update:
We have bad news for all Hardware Unlock users ( Gevey SIM, X-SIM, R-SIM …). We tried to Unlock iOS 6 beta 4 with Gevey Sim, but all hardware unlocks are blocked permanently. Stay away from iOS 6. In case your iPhone isn’t factory unlocked, you must stay away from iOS 6 updates.
