AT+XEMN is a command on baseband 05.11.07 (pushed out with the 3.1 release), which when exploited correctly, causes a heap overflow allowing the crash to be moulded into an injection vector. This injection vector can then be used to inject an unlocking payload to provide a software SIM unlock on the official 3.1(.2) firmware running 05.11.07.

Credit

  • Vulnerability: Oranav (July) and iH8sn0w (September) (discovered independently)
  • Exploit: geohot

Implementation

This exploit is used in blacksn0w.
