Great news for everyone! Ultrasn0w 1.2.7 has been released by the iPhone Dev Team and can now unlock iOS 5.1.1 firmware with preserved basebands.
Now iOS unlockers can use this official Ultrasn0w tool instead of using the ultrasn0w fixer to unlock iPhone 4 / iPhone 3GS on iOS 5.1.1. It can be used on any firmware as it is backward compatible.
Ultrasn0w 1.2.7 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.
Users can use Sn0wBreeze if on any of these basebands and can preserve while updating to the latest 5.1.1. The Ultrasn0w 1.2.7 won’t unlock iPhone 4 baseband 4.11.08 / 4.12.01 — for more info with regards to unlocking these basebands click here.
