You saw it coming, didn’t you? Like Gevey Ultra, R-SIM IV hardware unlock solution for baseband 4.11.08 and 4.12.01 is also a copy of SAM Unlock exploit found by Loktar Sun.
As most of you would have already known that Apple has fixed the ICCID vulnerability in activation servers, people who own latest Gevey Ultra and R-SIM IV will be no longer able to use both methods because Applenberry and EachSupplier copied Loktar Sun’s free solution. Applenberry has already accepted and apologized on this matter. The company is also offering full refund for people who have ordered Gevey Ultra but we haven’t heard anything yet from EachSupplier.
If you visit official R-SIM 4 page and head over to “steps for unlocking”, you’ll notice that Step 4 requires your iPhone 4 to be activated through iTunes. This Step is quite similar to the Loktar Sun’s solution. Moreover, this product was released just after three days of the arrival of SAM unlock method. Now official page also shows “Out of Stock” in availability section. All of these evidences suggest that R-SIM IV didn’t use any original method.
This situation is quite unfortunate for many people because they were anxiously waiting to unlock iPhone 4 baseband 4.11.08 and EachSupplier promised about a month ago that within 10 days, they’re going to release a legitimate solution but we didn’t get anything concrete from the company except a few delays. As soon as Loktar Sun released a solution, R-SIM IV was also released.
It’s quite obvious now that Applenberry and EachSupplier were trying to make a quick money by using a free SAM method and they were not expecting this sudden ICCID vulnerability fix from Apple.
