How to add the Ultrasn0w Repo to Cydia and unlock your iPhone 3g and 3g[s] using ultrasn0w

Written by iHospital. Posted in How To

Things to know:

  • Your phone must have a modem firmware of 4.26.08 for ultrasn0w to work.
  • If you have T-Mobile in the USA, 3G will need to be turned off for ultrasn0w to work for you.
  • If your modem firmware is above 4.26.08, you will not be able to use ultrasn0w
  • If your modem firmware is below 4.26.08, simply upgrade to 3.0 or 3.0.1 , BUT NOT 3.1 or ABOVE.
  • In order to use ultrasn0w on 3.1 or above, you will need to upgrade your ipsw using custom firmware only!!
