How to Unlock iPhone 3GS OS 3.1 With UltraSn0w

Advertisements

These are instructions on how to software unlock the iPhone 3GS with OS 3.1 for use with any GSM cell phone carrier. Before you can follow these instructions you must have a jailbroken iPhone if you haven’t jailbreaked your iPhone 3GS then follow our Guide to How to Jailbreak iPhone 3GS on OS 3.1 Pwnage Tool (Mac) or How to Jailbreak iPhone 3GS 3.1 on Windows. For unlocking your iPhone UltraSn0w, a soft unlock payload from iPhone Dev Team is used. UltraSn0w is a small daemon that is launched on boot.  It injects the payload at boot and also whenever there is a baseband reset.  You won’t notice anything about it other than that your third-party sim now works. Once you have a Jailbreaked iPhone then you can use these easy steps to Unlock your iPhone.

Step One : Press to launch Cydia Installer from your Springboard.

    Ive successfully followed the options and my phone is jailbroken on 3.1. I then went on Itunes to restore all my data, only to find a newer version of the operating system is available, 3.1.2. The problem is that when in Itunes I can’t restore my data without updating too. so, is 3.1.2 safe for a Jailbroken phone?

    Darn it! I’m in the “out of luck” category too. This must be really hard to try to figure out for the Dev Team. We’re cheering for you guys, we know you can do it!

    Will this work on OTB 3.1′s that will (Hopefully)be JB with greenpois0n? Does the baseband version matter for this? Thanks.

    So 3gs with 3.1 can unlock as far as i understand.What about 3g with 3.1? Is there any hope with 3g unlock?

      @Gaksu Unlock 3G with the same procedure but your baseband should be 4.26.08
