The iPhone Dev Team has found another exploit to unlock iPhone OS 3.1.3 baseband – MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team has tweeted that just re-discovered a crashing command that yellowsn0w, the iPhone unlocking software was originally going to use.
What does that mean? It means he has found another working exploit for the baseband bundled in iPhone OS 3.1.3, which should help them figure out a way to jailbreak and unlock the latest iPhone OS.
The iPhone hacking community has already discovered two working exploits for the baseband 05.12.01 that is bundled in iPhone OS 3.1.3.
MuscleNerd announced on his Twitter page:
Ha just re-found crashing command yellowsn0w was originally going to use before +stkprof. Apple fixed it *accidentally* in 02.28.00.
some commands have come and gone. some command holes have come and gone. this command has come and gone but not the hole:)
it still seems accidental though :) there are no overt signs that they’ve closed the hole, but the byte alignment kills it
Apple has built in this bizzare intepreter into their baseband.
Why is it in production units? Fun!
It is still not clear whether hey’re talking about the same exploit or a different one.
In any case, the iPhone Dev Team and Geohot have at least one working exploit for the 05.12.01 baseband, unlocking iPhone OS 3.1.3 could soon become a reality rather than a dream!
