Unlock iPhone OS 3.1.3 Baseband 05.11.07 With Blacksnow

If you followed our step-wise tutorial to unlock your iPhone 3G 3GS on 3.1.3 firmware with 05.11.07 baseband using Blacksn0w and faced problems/issues, then this post will address them. Blacksnow was facing issues in unlocking iphone 3.1.3 because it actually locates a function and patch it via searching a binary string "SIM is not supported", but in iPhone firmware 3.1.3, Apple replaced this string with "Verified". There is a workaround to cater this change, the patch will work if the string and its length is changed in Blacksn0w.

Please follow following step wise procedure to unlock you iPhone 3G/3GS with blacksn0w. Please note that this is only for 05.11.07 baseband, it won't work on latest 05.12.01 baseband.
