Jailbreak your iPhone

GeoHot is Working on an Unlock for Baseband 5.11.07


Good news for those who stucked locked on iPhone 3G/3GS with baseband 5.11.07, GeoHot tweeted a while ago that he starts finding the exploit for baseband 05.11.07 GeoHot claims “ i don’t have an exploit yet it’ll take me a day to find i bet ”. So we can expect another bang from GeoHot very soon, A two day ago he released the Blackra1n RC2 by added support for Jailbreaking the newer iBoot loaded iPhone 3GS. Though it was a tethered jailbreak means “ After jailbreak, if your battery die or phone crashes, you’ll need to run the jailbreak process again with a computer “

Unlock baseband 5.11.07


<< 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

Have Something To Say ?

  1. Digital Extreme February 6, 2010 Reply

    This is very strange!! Today I bought a used iphone 3gs 16gb. The guy I bought it from told me that it was giving him an error 28 when trying to restore it via iTunes. Sure nuf, I tried to update it and get off of the emergency call only page but I was getting error 13 then 28, then 29. I honestly have no clue what I did, but somehow, my iphone is updated to 3.1.3 but the bandbase is still at 5.11.07. Is there any way to unlock and jailbreak this phone since I am still on the 5.11.07 bandbase? My email is digital_xtreme1976@yahoo.com. Thank you very much in advance!!!

    Jody Sander claims to have the unlock at his own web… Look to it… Its true?

  25. trriplesss October 29, 2009 Reply

    hey , i m new user here , but i really appreciate what GEOHOT is doing . i got something around 7 3gs with baseband 5.11.7 n completly depend on geohot . give us some good news man . we all r waitin )

  26. MagicUser October 29, 2009 Reply

    Geohot can do it . Probably he doesn’t care about the prize on top of it, as I’m thinking he is the one who wants to finish what he started. But getting 10 K prize wouldn’t be refused by him if he crack the shit out of the iphone!:)

  27. Paresh Patel October 29, 2009 Reply

    Desperatly waiting….Geohot, thanks a million as u started exploiting to unlock BB 5.11.

  28. Pankaj October 29, 2009 Reply

    Don’t want to bug geohot when he’s workin’ hard, but Vinay, any updates so far for the “unlucky” ones who updated their 3GS to 3.1 with BB 05.11.07 accidentally?

    And, do we first need to jailbreak the phone with purplera1n or something? and if that doesn’t work once/twice, is it reversible? i don’t want to try ANYTHING now till i’m sure it can be done!!

  29. JamesW October 29, 2009 Reply

    Oops… I also blinded upgraded my 3gs to 3.1.2. I wasn’t planning on it upgrading my Modem Firmware to 05.11.07 too. This is also now my homepage…. I need my phone back!

    You guys are the greatest. I have been pulling out my hair for days looking for & testing many types of softwares & solutions. To no avail, none of them work. I, as well as thousands of other iPhonerz apprecieate the hard work you & the team dedicate to us. I graciously thank all of you. Keep up the good work.

  38. Arshad October 28, 2009 Reply

    Great news, I have been looking forward for base band downgrade options for a long time. Hope it will do the job for boot loader 6.02 as well.

  45. 3Gs user October 27, 2009 Reply

    Great News!!! I recently blindly updated my 3Gs to 3.1.2 from 3.0.1 with a custom firmware (for some reason I didn’t think the custom firmware will affect my baseband) but it did, now i’m stuck… hope this is genuine as i’ve tried most methods to downgrade firmware/baseband to no avail….. I think i’ll make this site my home page.
