However, GeoHot has recently decided to look into an unlock for the 05.11.07 baseband. It seems that Jody Sanders, better known as the guy that sells the Dev-Teams unlocks, has offered GeoHot $10,000 to release the unlock.

If GeoHot does find an exploit for the unlock, it will be released to the community for free however, Sanders will continue to sell support for the the unlock to his customers.

According to GeoHot it should only take him a day or so to find the exploit. He started the search at 10:00pm EST last night.

So far, he still hasn’t found an exploit and is running out of places to look. We will just have to wait and see if he is able to find one!

  1. It would be so nice to be able to do what all these geniuses can do. With or without money I would enjoy having the ability to do all of these things for my iDevices. I wish I was good with computers…

    I wish them luck, but I am a loyal AT&T (USA) customer. I had T-Mobile (USA) for one year in a very large market and the service sucked for me. Never going back to them. No problems for AT&T with me.

    • I’m on at&t too (switched from T-Mobile so I could have 3G), but it’d be nice to have the ability to unlock my phone for when traveling overseas.

  3. so nice to be able to do what all these geniuses can do that`s very cool

  4. Though my iPhone does not require the unlock, but I hope either iPhone dev team or GeoHotz could find the carrier unlock for this baseband soon.

    Good luck!!!
