Gevey Recalls iPhone Unlock Tool

iPhone 4 owners, who bought the rather hefty priced Gevey Ultra to unlock their handsets, have just received some intriguing news. Applenberry, the main Gevey distributor, has announced the recall for all the Gevey Ultra 5.1 for the iPhone 4 mobiles.

The reason for this, is that the mechanism has stopped working, after Apple fixed the loophole that was used to unlock an iPhone. In addition, people behind Gevey were caught red-handed, as they had copy and pasted details, from another company's unlock solution.

"Unfortunately, the GEVEYTM Ultra 5.1 for GSM iPhone 4 will no longer unlock the iPhone 4. The unlocking mechanism used in this model was based on Loktar Sun's (the SAM solution to iPhone unlocking) discovery of an Apple server logic error that took advantage of an ICCID bug to unlock the iPhone modem firmware. On April 27, Apple fixed this bug", announced Applenberry.

Apple phone owners, who had ordered Gevey will receive a refund, but it is very likely that they will be happy about the situation. They had to pay $50 (about £30) for something they could very well get for free.

According to Applenberry's official statement, Shanghai Ai Guan Digital Technology, the rights holder of GEVEYTM brand products, is taking full responsibility for the mess.
