    Sherif hashim has found a crash for baseband 5.12 which could be used for an unlock. This is a good thing for anyone who accidentally updated to a stock 3.1.3 firmware.

    However its all up to the dev team now when to release it, They might save it for a future device/firmware. What are your thoughts guys?

    Nice. No major threat in accidentally updating so.

    Quality post. Front paged! I saw it on twitter earlier and didn't have time to pull all the tweets up so I'm really happy you have as I just copied and pasted your whole post to the front page

    I hope they release ASAP.... I'd rather not have to pay £15 for a carrier unlock..

    I would rather just do that, £15 isnt that much when you think about it as it is a permanent unlock..

    I just want to know how they do it, surely it must be taken in by them and modified / replaced in some way? Otherwise we could just fake that "official unlocking" process.

    Could possibly just send data over the network to the phone. :/ I see what you're getting at though.
