Ultrasn0w fixer has been updated for support on those running the marginally-tweaked iOS 6.0.1, released by Apple a few days ago. So those of you looking to maintain the carrier unlock you've treasured for so long can now do so on the very latest firmware.
The much anticipated update to The iPhone Dev Team's Redsn0w jailbreak utility brought a ton of features. The updates attached to the revision are probably a lot more notable than most of us would have imagined with one of the new features allowing iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users to block the baseband update that would generally come attached to updating the firmware on the device. This is great news for owners of one of those two devices who want to experience all that a new version of iOS has to offer without losing a software based unlock on their current baseband.
With the jailbreak community once again reveling in delight after the release of the latest jailbreak that provides an untethered experience across the board on iOS 5.1.1, the expectant update and release of the iPhone Dev Team's software-based Ultrasn0w unlock has finally come to fruition. For a lot of users, being jailbroken is only half the battle, with the ultimate goal being able to unlock their iPhone for use on all networks.
