    I am no unlocker, but I am pretty sure that there is no software unlock for 5.1 (unless you updated to 5.1 thruogh a custom IPSW, and the previous BB was unlockable).

    But I also heard in UK that you can pay for factory unlocks. Sorry I'm not of more help

    I don't think you have a choice mate if you want it unlocked. Your friend should not have updated it to 5.1.

    No..............Sorry. While you can downgrade (only if you have SHSH blobs) the baseband cannot be downgraded. He should have updated to 5.1 with a custom IPSW. What kind of custom IPSW............Any kind of custom IPSW. Any tool that makes custom IPSW's preserve the baseband.

    this is an old thread-closed.
    If you can stay calm while all around you is chaos then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.
