How To Unlock iPhone 4 or 3G/3GS with Ultrasn0w [iOS 4.0/4.0.1]

The Jailbreak for iPhone 4 and all other iPhones running iOS 4 has already been released online at Jailbreakme.com by Comex in a way few had expected. Now following that here’s the unlock solution for you all. Use your iPhone 3G/ 3GS/ 4 with any carrier worldwide with this unlock.

This guide has actually been tested on the said devices and works like a charm. The unlock via Ultrasn0w will work on your iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 with almost any baseband. However do make sure that your baseband is one of the following:

Go to Settings > General > About > Modem Firmware to get this info.

iPhone 3G / 3GS Basebands:

  • 04.26.08
  • 05.11.07
  • 05.12.01
  • 05.13.04

iPhone 4 Baseband:

  • 01.59.00

If your baseband is present in the lists above, that’s positive sign. Proceed with the instructions here and you will have an iPhone ready for any network. Jailbreak your iPhone if you haven’t done that already.


Steps to follow:

  • Launch Cydia
  • Click on Manage tab
  • Click on Sources. Click on the Repo that reads “repo666.ultrasn0w.com”. If its not present click on Edit and then Add. Type the URL without quotes.
  • Click on Ultrasn0w and then on the Install button.
  • Finally, Click on Confirm




Make sure you have a working wifi or data connection before you click on Confirm as Cydia will try to download the app. Once the process is over the Reboot Device button will appear. Click on it and wait for your iDevice to restart. And you’re done. While it restarts you may put in any other sim card other than the carrier the phone was locked to. It worked the first time for me and without any issues. The network search is pretty fast and takes around 15 seconds maximum to register network.


Go ahead and unlock your iPhone. Let us know if you run into any issues. We might be able to lend a helping hand as always.

Guide to Jailbreak iPhone 3G/3GS/4 online using Jailbreakme [iOS 4.0/4.0.1]

For Your Info:
in brief, is the process of freeing your Apple device from the restrictions imposed by the manufacturer. It’s a software installation which will hence give you ability to install third party applications including those unapproved by your carrier or Apple.

This tutorial has been tested and works for all iPhone devices having the latest firmware. The latest firmware version released at the time of writing this post is 4.0.1. If your iPhone’s firmware version is older you can get 4.0 or 4.0.1 firmware here and upgrade in iTunes and then proceed as follows.


Step One:

Launch Safari and make sure you are connected to a wi-fi or cellphone data network and point it to www.jailbreakme.com


Step Two:

A page similar to the screenshot shown here will appear. Move the slider to right just the way you unlock your iPod to proceed with the Jailbreak.


Step Three:

The download process will begin and once the required files are downloaded the jailbreak will begin. Sit back patiently as the slider moves forth. This may take longer if you’re on a slow connection of if the website is facing outage.


Step Four:

Once you’re notified that Cydia is added press OK and you’re done. An icon for cydia should be present on your springboard once you click the Home Button. Enjoy!



While the following guide has been tested to work for the suggested devices, please proceed at your own risk. Apple classifies this process as illegal and you may void your warranty. We’re also not responsible if your iPod starts mailing people on distant planets.


This process is absolutely reversible. You can simply restore your device in iTunes and set it up as a new one. You may want to do it before you take it to the Apple store for repairs.
