    This is Not mine!!! I have no idea if it works I am just reposting it to see if peeps want to risk it...please idk so don't ask me..use at your own risk This came via sinfuliphone

    BlackSn0w is unable to unlock baseband 05.11.07 on firmware 3.1.3 because it locates a function to patch by searching the binary for reference to string “SIM is not supported” but in iPhone OS 3.1.3, the same function now uses the string “Verified”. Since the location to patch is determined by instruction search&replace, the patch itself still works in 3.1.3 after changing the string and its length in Blacksn0w binary.

    To unlock your iPhone 3GS and 3G running iPhone OS 3.1.3 Baseband 05.11.07 with BlackSn0w, simply follow the step by step instructions listed below.

    Unlock iPhone 3.1.3 Baseband 05.11.07 with BlackSn0w

    STEP 1

    STEP 2
    Install OpenSSH on your iPhone from Cydia. Then reboot your iPhone.
    STEP 3
    Connect your iPhone to your computer and close the iTunes.
    STEP 4
    Windows Users:
    Download WinSCP and install it. Run the WinSCP and provide the following details:

    * Hostname: IP address of your iPhone. (Settings >> WiFi >> Tap the Arrow next to selected Network)
    * User name: root
    * Password: input your SSH password here. Default password is alpine
    * Protocol: SCP

    STEP 5
    Copy the System\Library\LaunchDaemons\com.apple.CommCenter.plist from blacksn0w.deb to /tmp/ directory on the phone, you’ve SSH’d into.
    STEP 6
    Download the patched blacksn0w.dylib

    Copy it to /usr/lib/ directory on the phone.
    STEP 7
    Install the MobileTerminal from Cydia. Open the Terminal app and run the following commands to login as root.

    * su root
    * alpine

    Once you have logged in, enter the following command (yes it’s a single lengthy command)
    launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist ; launchctl load /tmp/com.apple.CommCenter.plist ; launchctl start com.apple.CommCenter
    Check if you get the Signals with unofficial Carrier SIM.
    In case the test load fails, your iPhone will freeze. Wait 20 seconds and reboot it using (Power+Home) buttons combination.
    STEP 8
    if test load is successful, copy the com.apple.CommCenter.plist file from /tmp/ directory on the iPhone to /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/.
    Reboot your iPhone. That’s it.

    This has worked for me on my brand new 3gs so if it doesnt work for you most likely you did a incorrect step

    He copied and pasted it so the last part was probably part of the copied part.

    The real question is why anyone would be in this situation when everyone knows that there is absolutely no reason to update to 3.1.3, and using PwnageTool to do so (the only way anyone would be on 3.1.3 and still have baseband 05.11.07) is against the express advice of the Dev-Team.

    Not all people updated most people just bought the 3gs like me so it came with 3.1.3 its lucky to get one with 3.1.2

    All new iPhones purchased with 3.1.3 on them or updated to 3.1.3 stock have the 05.12.01 baseband, which cannot be unlocked with blacksn0w even with this procedure. The only way to get a phone with 3.1.3 and the 05.11.07 baseband is to upgrade with a custom firmware created with PwnageTool.

    Link to Google Site?

    When I click on the link in Step 1, it doesn't seem to work. Can you confirm the URL?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    If your 3GS came with 3.1.3 theres nothing that can be done at the moment to JB it or unlock it.
    Searching and asking the same question will not change anything.

    If it was that easy, why wouldnt they just re-write the program and make a new release of blacksn0w?
