Dev-Team – Losing GPS Functionality When Unlocking 06.15.00 Baseband

The Dev-Team has added another update to their blog post about the ultrasn0w unlock for iOS 4.2.1. The update talks about an issue with retaining GPS when unlocking iPhones with 06.15.00 baseband. It seems that some people on 06.15.00 are losing their GPS functionality when they unlock their device. The Dev-Team does not currently have a fix for this problem and says that, even though the problem does not occur for everyone, you should just assume you will lose GPS capabilities when ulocking 06.15.00. However, they are working on a fix for the problem. Check out the full details below.

Dev-Team Releases New Version of redsn0w

The Dev-Team has updated redsn0w to version 0.9.6beta5 for unlockers. Below is all the info.

Update #2: The new redsn0w 0.9.6beta5 is out. It gives both Windows and OSX users the ability to flash the iPad 06.15 baseband on iPhone3G or iPhone3GS. It fetches the baseband files directly from Apple for now (the only IPSW you ever point it at is the stock IPSW for the FW on your iPhone right now). There may be a long delay while it’s doing this (their servers are currently getting pounded).

* OSX (SHA1 a322ec2c9e91993eca21abaf2e655bb44de3d7d4)
* Windows (SHA1 7250416e17c3aea9838cdfc73712b38b025e2ed0)

If you do flash your baseband via redsn0w, please keep it plugged into USB the whole time. You don’t want your battery to die during the flash process!

Dev-Team Releases iOS 4.2.1 Unlock for iPhone 3G/3GS

The Dev-Team has released the much anticipated update to the unltrasn0w unlock that unlocks iOS 4.2.1 on the iPhone 3G and 3GS. Below is what they have to say… make sure you read it thoroughly.

Today we’re pleased to announce our free carrier unlock for iPhone3G/3GS owners with a baseband later than 05.13.04. The unlock for that baseband exploited the AT+XAPP command, thanks to a crash initially discovered by @sherif_hashim (@Oranav also found this crash). So what hole are we exploiting today, since Apple closed that AT+XAPP hole? Well, we’re exploiting the exact same hole!
