A few weeks ago, I blogged about an unknown called hacker hamzah_akram about his attempts to unlock iPhone 4 baseband 4.11.08. He just released his tutorials. Please read on.

UPDATE: AT&T iPhone 4 can be factory unlocked. Unlock it now.

Many people were convinced that he would be able to make it. His blog became the center of attention by iPhone 4 users who are stuck on baseband 4.11.08. However, many people turned skeptics after his effort was criticized and flamed; including MuscleNerd who labeled him as ‘fake’ on Twitter.’

    Thank you

  2. Worked for me on two phones. Locked to AT&T and I’m in Ireland. Bought an AT&T sim on flea bay and carried out the procedure a few times before it worked… Thanks.

  3. Hi when I select the network selection to OFF it gives me a message "Unable to load network list" so I cannot select my desired network please help …. Thanks

  4. What can you use besides an original SIM because I bought my iPhone 4 second hand on Craigslist and never got the original SIM.

  5. ES COMPLETAMENTE REAL, FUNCIONA EL TELEFONO QUEDA COMO LIBERADO DE CASA. POR FAVOR SIGAN LOS PASOS COMO INDICA Y VERAN QUE LES RESULTA, ESO SI TIENEN QUE TENER UN CHIP DE LA OPERADORA DE ORIGEN Y UN CHIP QUE NAVEGUE AL CUAL VAN A LIBERAR.

    • Google translation:

      IS FULLY REAL, HOW DOES THE PHONE IS RELEASED FROM HOME. PLEASE FOLLOW THE STEPS AS SHOWN AND IS VERAN THEM, THAT IF YOU HAVE HAVE A CHIP OF THE OPERATOR OF ORIGIN AND A CHIP THAT IS GOING TO SURF THE RELEASE.

      • the actual translation is: It is completely real, it works, the phone works as if it was factory unlicked. please follow every step as they are shown and you will eventually get them to work, but you DO have to have an original SIM from the original carrier and another one with a data plan to the carrier you wish to unlock.
