<< Update Section >>
Update 1). The 24 hours timeline is finished and it seems GeoHot requires some more time. According to his recent disclosures it is cleared that he is working on exploiting the AT+XEMN Command. AT+XEMN is a command on baseband 5.11.07 (pushed out with official 3.1.2 firmware), which when exploited correctly, causes a heap overflow allowing 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 The good news is that he is still working on the 05.11.07 baseband so keep your finger crossed and keep checking this space regularly.
Update 2). It’s almost 48 hours since GeoHot starts his work, i know we have many desperate guyz here who accidentally updated their baseband to 5.11.07 All i have to say is keep your faith in GeoHot he is working hard on a new unlock. Jody Sander owner of a popular iPhone unlocking site starts a contest for encouraging all iPhone hackers, he made a 10,000$ bounty for who first unlock the baseband 5.11.07 here is the official Jody’s challenge page , don’t worry if GeoHot accepts his prize the unlock will be free for community. Jody Sander haz a bad reputation in Dev Team eyes because he used to sell pwnage tool and yellowsn0w, but Jody claims he only sells the support.
Update 3). It’s 72 hours and Finally GeoHotz breaks the silence with a new post on his blog. For more details check our new post Blacksn0w : Unlock for Baseband 5.11.07 Sooner or Later
