We have a big news to share. Apple has blocked the hole used for iPhone 4 unlock using GEVEY SIM in the latest software update. Today, Apple has released iOS 5 beta 2 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. With the new software update for developers, the company has closed the ability that GEVEY SIM interposer uses to unlock the iPhone 4 device.

Confirmed by iPhone Dev Team key member MuscleNerd:
