3 Days ago we published GeoHot is Working on an Unlock for Baseband 5.11.07, and Jody Sander sets an open bounty of 10,000 $ for who unlocks the baseband 5.11.07 first. GeoHot claimed he’ll find a possible solution in 2 hours, but he fails to achieve his ETA. But this doesn’t means he is not working on 5.11.07 anymore. Yes he is working hardly and already succeeded to run an arbitrary code on the 5.11.07 baseband. The command AT+XEMN, if exploited correctly causes a heap overflow. The heap overflow allows the crash to be molded into an injection vector. This injection vector can then be used to inject the Ultrasn0w/Generic Unlocking Payload to provide a coveted Software Sim Unlock on Official 3.1.2 running 5.11.07, Here is the screenshot GeoHot posted on his blog. GeoHot also tweeted “ #blacksn0w is still a ways away…thats just PoC. and I’m kind of burnt out from that ” We can’t say the ETA of release at the moment but we’ll try our best to keep yourself updated.
Update 1 : GeHotz unlocked the baseband 5.11.07 and the blacksn0w unlock is expected to release on 4th of the November. In the mean time check this video uploaded by GeoHot. Check on 0:47 where GeoHot mentioned the 11/04/09 so we can say GeoHot will release blacksn0w on 4th of this November.
Update 2 : Blacksn0w is going to be a part of Blackra1n and the new version of Blackra1n will be available on 4th November. This means now you can unlock your iPhone without WiFi, it reminds me the days of Ziphone when Zibri released a one click utility to unlock and jailbreak both in a single click.
We’ll post the complete instructions once the blacksn0w will be available in the wild. In the mean time stick with us on Twitter @ihackinjosh or subscribe our free daily e-mail newsletter CLICK HERE to keep yourself updated on every news about iPhone community.
