iOS 6.0.1 is the latest available firmware for iPhone 5, 4S, 4 and 3GS users, while iOS 6.1 is the available only for developers. Those who updated to this latest firmware would now be looking to unlock it.
A few days ago, we showed you how to unlock the iOS 6.0 firmware with updated basebands on your iPhone 4, 4S, 5. Now it’s time for iOS 6.0.1 unlock possibilities. Read on for more details.
Apple did a wise thing by solving bugs users were facing, and releasing iOS 6.0.1 firmware. The new version came with improvements (the OTA update is now available for iPhone 5), and bug fixes, such as camera issues, Wi-Fi connectivity bug, horizontal lines and the keyboard bug and much more.
However, all these features will be unavailable, if the firmware locks your phone. The current methods such as SAM, Gevey and utlrasn0w are unreliable on iOS 6.0.1. The only solution available is the IMEI unlock method.
iOS 6.0.1 / iOS 6.1 basebands are the same as in iOS 6.0 excluding iPhone 5:
- iPhone 3GS Baseband 5.16.07
- iPhone 4 Baseband 4.12.02
- iPhone 4s Baseband 3.0.04
- iPhone 5 Baseband 1.00.10
Unlock iOS 6.0.1 / iOS 6.1 with SAM Tickets
Before you forget, we recommend those people who are unlocked through the SAM unlock tool shouldn’t update to iOS 6.0.1, as there is no untethered jailbreak for it. SAM unlockers are required to restore backed activation tickets manually, or through redsn0w, which requires an untethered jailbreak. Therefore, it’s recommended that you stay on iOS 5.1.1.
Unlock iOS 6.0.1 / iOS 6.1 with Ultrasn0w
Coming over to ultrasn0w, the tool ultrasn0w fixer for 6.0 provided an unlock solution on 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.
Users who unlocked via this method also need to wait for the untethered jailbreak and iOS 6.0.1 / 6.1 baseband preservation methods. iPhone 4 users, on the other hand, can unlock only 1.59.00 baseband with ultrans0w fixer 6.0. Updating to iOS 6.0.1 firmware will also update the baseband to 04.12.02, leaving no solution to unlock.
