Though the new unlocking law, it's of great difficulty for ultrasnow to develop software unlock, since the basebands are provide by qualcomm.

Surely every YouTube video is for real ........ NOT ! :eek:

As stated, software unlocking has been dead for coming up on 4 years. The last device which Ultrasn0w worked on was iPhone 4 with the original baseband (1.59.xx)

Sad part is that Unlock was always associated with jailbreak in the beginning, thats is why many people still question about it and sites still cashing in on "Jailbreak Unlock" and rip people off.

If iPhone unlocking was first available via IMEI then no one would have remember the Ultrasn0w days lol
