A new unlock has been discovered that works for all iPhones and all 5.x firmware versions, all basebands are supported.
The method discovered by Loktar_Sun appears to exploit a logical bug in Apple's server and can be performed on any jailbroken iOS device. His procedure involves using Sam Bingner's SAM (Subscriber Artificial Module) package to perform a series of steps that unlocks your phone to use a specific SIM.
It has been confirmed working by iPhone Dev-Team member MuscleNerd who notes an update may be coming to SAM from @sbingner to make the procedure simpler.

A hacker and iPhone jailbreaker known as "Chronic" suggests that Apple will increase the RAM in its upcoming iPad model. Leaked debug photos purportedly from Apple's third-generation iPad show that the device will sport 1GB of RAM, double the amount of its predecessor iPad 2 that carries 512MB of RAM, the same amount as the iPhone 4.
Leaked debug photos allegedly of Apple's next iPad that surfaced last month showed a line of code that read "vm_page_bootstrap: 244276 free pages and 8396 wired pages." By multiplying the number of free pages by the size of a page (4,096 bytes), the developer deduced that the device would have 1GB of RAM.

Various bug fixes
In 2010, Tristan Schaap, who now serves as a Core OS engineer at Apple, published a Bachelor thesis on his 12-week stint as an intern with Apple's Platform Technologies Group, a subdivision of the Core OS department. The thesis revealed that the former Apple intern had been working on the secret project to port Mac OS X Snow Leopard to the ARM architecture.
According to the paper, Schaap worked with the group to get Darwin, the "lower half" of Apple's Mac OS X operating system, to boot onto an ARM processor from Marvell. During the course of the project, he achieved his goal of "booting into a multi-user prompt," though some issues still remained due to a "poor implementation on the debug hardware."
