Its latest version, Ultrasn0w v1.0-1 allows you to unlock the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3 running iOS 4.0 and iOS 4.01. Version 1.0-1 of ultrasn0w works for:
* iPhone4 baseband 01.59
* 3G/3GS basebands 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01 and 05.13.04
NOTE THAT THIS VERSION OF ULTRASN0W STILL DOES NOT SUPPORT IOS 4.02/4.1, so do not upgrade to it if you want to keep your unlock!
How to download and use Ultrasn0w v1.0-1?
#1 – You need to jailbreak your iPhone using either JailBreakMe or Pwnage Tool (VERY IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE ANY JAILBREAK TOOLS OTHER THAN JAILBREAKME OR PWNAGE!!!). This will also install Cydia app on your iPhone.
#2 – Once the previous step is done, load the Cydia app from your springboard.
#3 – Go to “search” and look for “ultrasn0w”. (If ultrasn0w doesn’t show when you search Cydia, add the repo: repo666.ultrasn0w.com). Once located, simply install Ultrasn0w and reboot your iPhone.
If everything went right, no further steps should be needed – once Ultrasn0w is installed it should do its work in the background and you should now be able to use a SIM card from any carrier.
Note that Ultrasn0w won’t create an icon on your springboard, but you can check if it’s installed or not via Cydia.
