FuriousMod iOS5 Fix by mcbaron15 Unlock iPhone4 with Gevey Ultra on 5.0.1

It has come to our attention that the FuriousMod repo is not currently working and also the official FuriousMod package that is available does not work on iOS5. For those with an on 5.0.1 who have a compatible baseband(anything but 04.11.08) you can do a manual installation of the Furious Mod 5.0.1 deb from a MacRumors users, mcbaron15, which will allow you to use a on the latest iPhone firmware.

iOS 5.0.1 Furious Mod (by mcbaron15)

The easiest way to the deb would be to use iFile. Simply transfer the deb file to any folder in your iPhone(make the location easy to remember). You can do this via SSH with Cyberduck(mac) or WinSCP(windows) or you can use a USB transfer program such as iFunBox. After you have transferred the file to your phone open up iFile and navigate to the folder. Select the .deb file and choose "Installer" when it asks you what to open it with.

Once you reboot your phone you will be able to use your Gevey Ultra SIM! If it doesn't work for you at first, try switching airplane mode on for a few seconds and then turning it off(thanks to Krisz for the tip!)

    D´you know what?!? It works!!! Great and thanks alot to macbaron15! Why isn´t this article spread further? It took me a couple of days after jailbreak release to find it and I thought I was good in finding such stuff… ;-)
    The only thing for me to do is to switch to airplane mode for a second or two after rebooting my device and that´s it. No more stupid dialing an emergency number or following the whole silly manual unlock procedure.

    Go ahead and tell everybody…

      Do you have an official Gevey Ultra SIM purchased from AppleNBerry? The knock-offs that people buy on Amazon and eBay have a very high failure rate.

    Furiousmod 2.0 is out and seems to be working for me, is this manual method more stable than v2.0 straight from the repo?  Because something is causing my iphone to get stuck when rebooting and I was hoping it was furiousmod that was causing the problem and if I did the unlock this way it would correct it.  Thoughts?
