Read About iPhone NCK Unlock

If you want to officially unlock your iPhone then you need to have 15-digit key. This key is called NCK (Network Control Key). The method to unlock the device with a legitimate NCK is still existing and functional in X-Gold 608 and possibly later basebands. It is, however, replaced by the policies occur the WildcardTicket which is created through the activation process. An unlocked iPhone gets a wildcard ticket which has no limitations set.

You can use this wildcart ticket to activate the iPhone baseband. You can find it in this file:

"/var/root/Library/Lockdown/activation_records/wildcard_record.plist"

If activating iPhone, the ticket is taken from Apple's server and located in the gadget. It includes everything regarding sim-/netlocks. Factory- and carrier-unlocked gadgets get a wildcard ticket with policies that enable all SIM cards.

It is a theoretical exploit that entails brute forcing the NCK from the seczone the CHIPID and the NORID. Up to now nobody has made public a clear case of NCK discovery applying this theoretical strategy.


Given that NCKs are 15 digits long, the keyspace is 1015 (about 250). This would be searchable if all the cryptography used was symmetric. But the algorithm is TEA(RSA(token),NCK+CHIPID+NORID) TEA. So that inside RSA has to be done. A modern machine can search the 8 digit keyspace in about 5 minutes, which means we need a couple orders of magnitude speed increase to consider 15 digit.

Ticket Layout

0x0 Version number (=2 for iPhone 3G, 3GS)

0x4 Encrypted Ticket

The ticket is decrypted with TEA in CBC mode using a key hashed from the NORID, CHIPID, IMEI and a salt. The layout of the decrypted ticket looks like this:

0x000        Certificate Length (in bits)

0x004        Certificate Serial (usually 1)

0x008        Public Key Length (in bits)

0x00c        Public Key Exponent

0x010-0x090  Public Key (RSA Key 3)

0x090-0x110  Montgomery Reduction

0x110-0x190  Certificate of the first 0x110 bytes signed with rsa_key2

0x190-0x19B  ICCID mask (relevant bits for simlock)

0x19C-0x1A3  IMEI

0x1A4-0x1B7  Hash of several hardware IDs (IMEI, NORID, CHIPID)

0x1B8-...    Table of "policies" (netlock)

Official Unlock For iPhone is Here

Did you heard fresh news that official method to unlock iPhone had been discovered? No need to hack your iPhone because it legal. Off course you may know this however this post is not about the factory that unlock iPhones. Just find out about what different people think regarding official unlock.


Check out what Olly Farshi said after official unlock iPhone:
“When upgrading to the iPhone 3GS, those same customers are given the option to pay off the remainder of their original 3G contract. Paying off the contract, and thus completing the two years prematurely, entitles the customer to have their iPhone 3G unlocked. 
The helpful assistant at the Sonera store made a note of my IMEI number and then passed it onto his boss — after that there’s a special piece of software that only his boss is authorized to use. This mystical application submits the IMEI to Apple, which in turn authorizes the device for unlocking. 
I was advised that when the iPhone 3G was next synced with iTunes, it would be unlocked. Minutes later, back at home, I connected the iPhone 3G to iTunes and received a new carrier settings update. After downloading and installing the update, Apple’s official iPhone unlock screen appeared.”

Proof of Official Method to Unlock iPhone:

Screenshot that shows iPhone was unlocked in iTunes:


It is important to note that Olly had to pay off the contract to officially unlock his iPhone, so this method can be expensive. And Finland is not the only country where this is allowed (mostly due to regulations enforced by Telecom authorities in those countries). But if you want officially to unlock your iPhone then you have to pay, because many free sources have no confidence.

Let's take a look at other views:

Sophie, TAB reader from France comments:
I have an Iphone 3G contract with orange. In France, it is possible to unlock any phone (including the iphone) after 6 months of contract, legally, with Itunes. We don’t have to wait until the end of the contract to get the unlocking code.
Reader Zoo from Sweden points out:
TeliaSonera in Sweden states on it’s website that they will unlock iPhone after 12 months for a fee of SEK 300 (~EUR 30). Telenor does the same for SEK 350:-. (no mention what happens if there is time left on the contract).
Ervin comments from Singapore:
Actually in Singapore, the laws states that all phones sold must be unlocked. So purchasing an iPhone, and then terminating the contract at an additional SGD850, you can have an unlocked phone, without a contract.
You can checkout this Apple Knowledge Base article to find out the list of carriers that allow authorized unlocking for an additional fee (though as per the link, Olly’s carrier Sonera doesn’t support authorized unlocking).

iPhone Unlock Note: You should look for the tick under the column “Carrier offers authorized unlocking” to find out if the carrier in your country offers authorized unlocking. No tick under the column “Locked to Carrier” means that you can buy a factory unlocked iPhone from the carrier.

If you are interested in this unlock exploit, here is some more information on how it works (from LUI):
"To unlock an iPhone you need the NCK which is a unique 15 digit key. Those keys for unlocking are sitting on Apples servers and send to the iPhone via iTunes while the iPhone is connected to the Mac/PC. Each iPhone has a unique HWID, NORID, CHIPID, (id's embedded in the iPhone hardware/chips and unique to each phone), the NCK is only working with the one iPhone where the above are matching. The NCK does not unlock any other iPhone.
Trying to bruteforce the NCK would take years even on high-end computers (NCK Brute Force - The iPhone Wiki).
Trying to guess the NCK is limited as well, After 5 or so unsuccessful attempts, the iPhone becomes permanently locked to the carrier - unless you're feeling really, really lucky, I wouldn't try it.
Apple has HWID, NORID, CHIPID... of all iPhones sold in countries, where the iPhone has to be sold unlocked. So once a phone of those is connected via iTunes, the apple servers check HWID, NORID, CHIPID and compare it to their database. If the matching iPhone is marked "factory unlocked" the Apple servers send the unique NCK for this iPhone."
Some might argue that iPhone Dev Team’s method to unlock iPhone is very easy but this official method could be useful for users who are not technically inclined to hack their iPhone.

Gevey Sim Can Unlock your iPhone 4 on iOS 6.1.3


Today many unlocking solutions for iPhone 4 are presented. Some of them are free and some of them are paid. As talking about free unlock for iPhone 4 then I can tell you that I didn’t find anything that can work. In spite of a lot of propositions in the net there is still nothing to pick. So here I want to talk with you about paid unlock for iPhone 4 called Gevey Sim. Before unlock read this:


First that you must know if you choose Gevey sim is that you have to update your firmware to iOS 6.1.3. But don’t do this using iTunes because it will update your baseband and kill the unlock forever.

Second, you need to have latest version of redsn0w 0.9.15b3 and generate custom bundle for preventing baseband update. Then activate your iPhone after installing iOS 6.1.3 and before unlocking process.

Note:Gevey sim unlocks iPhone baseband lower than 04.10.01.

Third you will need to have an original Sim card (AT&T for example). But if you don’t have it, than jailbreak iPhone using the same redsn0w (0.9.15b3). Right after jailbreak open iTunes and activate iPhone.

After all these done you can insert Gevey sim for unlocking iPhone 4. Gevey sim is not software based unlock. It uses a sim interposer which sits between the baseband hardware and the SIM card itself to perform what is known as a man in the middle attack, rendering iPhone 4 basebands: 01.59.00, 02.10.04, 03.10.01, 04.10.01.

Follow these steps to unlock iPhone 4 with Gevey Sim


  • Go to Settings » General » Network and switch off the 3G connection. Leave the Data Roaming and Cellular Data on.

  • Place your Gevey sim card into the sim tray provided with the card.

  • Now put your sim card on top of the Gevey sim.

  • Now turn off your iPhone 4.

  • Insert the Gevey sim with your card into the phone.

  • Turn the iPhone back on and wait.

  • You’ll see a Welcome message. Just tap Accept to proceed.

  • Wait for a few seconds until the 1-signal bar appears. Then dial 112.

  • Wait for about 2 seconds and hang up.

  • Go to your settings and turn the Airpalne mode on. Wait until the No SIM card installed message appears. Tap OK on that message and switch the Airpalne mode back off.

  • After you disable the Airpalne mode you’ll see the SIM failure notification. Tap OK and wait until the phone unlocks itself.

  • Wait for few seconds for full signal bar to appear.
After all these done I can tell that you have just unlocked your iPhone 4 on iOS 6.1.3 Just follow our how to guide and unlock iPhone 4 with Gevey sim fast and easy

If you are looking to officially unlock iPhone and for get about jailbreak and other guides - just follow the link.
