Hardware Hack Allows Unlock of iPhone 3G on OS 3.1.3 [Video]

Posted by · 35535 views · Translate

A shop in Istanbul, Turkey has posted a video demonstration of how they perform a 'hardware unlock' on the iPhone 3G with OS 3.1.3.

The video shows ElektroPower performing a hardware teardown to reflash the Baseband to 04.26.

Thanks to @pjer_pixie0809 and @MuscleNerd for the heads up.

Lol , I\'m turk too but living in usa . I called them while I was watching the movie . The employee says that i have to send it to them ,with $100 ! However I think they might did it .I guess they r erasing the eproms and reload them which does nt make sence since the software is capable of this . It is so risky way but I guess such dissection might work ! Ne Mutlu Turkum Diyene ! :)

Man, i feel upset to elektropower and to iclarified also, why? Don\'t you know guy\'s,this method is too old for us,we\'ve been doing this since the 2.0 is out. You guys forgot that the world first baseband dump by TA_mobile? He\'s the man behind all these. don\'t you see the videos that the elektropowernstaff downgraded it only to 4.26bb? while us we can downgrade it even to 2.28bb. Let me know guy\'s if you want proof that we can do it. Guy\'s you didn\'t give even a small credit to TA_mobile. Why we don\'t post this solution before? the answer is simple,We are not show off guy\'s. We have some other method of unlocking check this out: http://idecode.blogspot.com

This is real but useless because the only thing that they do is flash the chip to downgrade the baseband to 04.26.08 version and that\'s all !! ... after that they use Dev Team\'s Ultasn0w for unlocking, these scammers don\'t provide a real unlock.
