Watch MuscleNerd explain the Evolution of iPhone Baseband and Unlocks at HITB2012.

Since the first iPhone in 2007, the baseband that Apple uses for cellular communications has evolved in terms of both hardware and software. Some of the changes were minor but others were quite drastic and obviously aimed at deterring carrier unlocks. This paper details the most interesting of the changes and what effects they've had on both software-based unlocks and hardware-based SIM interposers. In addition to comparing the most recent baseband against its own earlier hardware and software incarnations, we compare it to other current Qualcomm handsets and discuss the ramifications of changes Apple has made to the traditional Qualcomm baseband boot sequence.

Take a look below...

Though we truly appreciate your efforts. Apple has beaten you guys. Gone are the days of Pwnage tool and quick unlocks. But hey, at least you give haven't thrown in the towel yet.
