iPhone Dev Team has released an updated version of Ultrasn0w 1.2.1 unlock to fix issues with iOS 4.3.1 firmware. This update is only for 4.3.1 compatibility and ONLY unlocks the baseband that Ultrasn0w 1.2 currently supports.
We’ve pushed out the 4.3.1 compatibility fix for ultrasn0w in Cydia – it’s now at version 1.2.1. If you’re not already at 4.3.1 and you need the unlock,please be sure you understand how to get to 4.3.1 using a custom IPSW that doesn’t update your baseband.
This isn’t a new unlock! It’s to allow those who are already unlocked to use FW 4.3.1. It also fixes the signal bar issue for those who aren’t using the unlock but retain an older baseband intentionally.
AFTER INSTALLING ULTRASN0W 1.2.1, PLEASE REBOOT YOUR iPHONE using the normal “slide to power off” swipe. T-Mobile users in the USA also should disable 3G mode in Settings->General->Network.
