Egyptian neurosurgeon Sherif Hashim seems to have found something very interesting. He found a way to actually crash the iPhone’s baseband 05.12.01 of the latest firmware update 3.1.3.
MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team has confirmed this bug. Though the iPhone Dev Team posted later today that they cannot tell if this bug actually leads to an unlock. The iPhone Dev Team also warns for potential scammers trying to rip us off.
More information to come. Congrats to Egypt! Nice find…
