When planetbeing, the iPhone hacking expert who had ported Android to Apple’s iPhone had announced that he has successfully unlocked iPhone 4, MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team had reported that there are three different methods to unlock iPhone baseband.
MuscleNerd has just announced that he has managed to unlock iPhone 4 using another method.
MuscleNerd announced this achievement on Twitter:
Yay, got the 2nd of 3 ideas working. Now @planetbeing and I can compare
He has also published photos to prove that he has unlocked his iPhone 4.
MuscleNerd has indicated that he will share notes with planetbeing to figure out, which method has faster loading times and more stable so that it can be released. They plan to save the third method for future.
MuscleNerd or planetbeing haven’t provided any details on when the tools to unlock iPhone 4 will be available to the public.
However, we doubt they will release the tools before Apple releases iOS 4.1 that was seeded to developers of iPhone Developer program, which means users who are eagerly waiting to jailbreak and/or soft-unlock their iPhone 4 will need to wait a bit longer.
