If you’re an iPhone 4 user with baseband 4.11.08 or 4.12.01 who couldn’t get any benefit from SAM unlock, then you would be worried that how you can get rid of this problem. Instead of worrying too much, you should try to get aware about the current status of these stubborn basebands. Here, we’ll give you an update about what’s is happening in the unlocking world right now and what you can expect in future.
SAM Unlock Overview
Most of you must have heard of SAM method by Loktar Sun. It was the only solution which worked for most people and they got their iPhone unlocked on any BB. Unfortunately, this solution used a bug in Apple servers. MuscleNerd and many hackers warned us that this method is not long term and soon this exploit will be fixed by Apple. Therefore, they advised us to save unlock tickets for future use. Those who saved baseband tickets can now unlock their phones for long period of time. They can now use it even after updating iOS. As expected, Apple has fixed the exploit and this solution wouldn’t work anymore for people who didn’t avail this opportunity.
Gevey and R-SIM IV
Expectations were great from both Gevey SIM and R-SIM IV but quite sadly both cheated their users and used SAM exploit in their chips. Applenberry and EachSupplier didn’t tell us that they’re using it in their SIM cards. When Apple fixed issue in their servers, Gevey told its users that they were using SAM method to unlock baseband 4.11.08 and 4.12.01. People were furious about it and at the end Applenberry apologized to its users and vowed that this wouldn’t happen in future.
What to Expect in Future?
Although, there’s no latest update on whether if some hacker or renowned company is working on BB 4.11.08 and iOS 5.1.1 BB 4.12.01 or not but we still believe that there might be some hacker who would be aware of the situation and he might try to bypass Apple security. Before, many people didn’t know about Loktar Sun but from nowhere, he came up with brilliant solution. Same thing can happen again and people can get their iPhone 4 unlocked.
We’ll update you as soon as we’ll get some news regarding these basebands.
