There is finally some good news for iPhone users who want to unlock their iPhone.
MuscleNerd responded to a question from one of his followers on Twitter:
simplysaru: @MuscleNerd thanks.. how long would the wait be for 4.2 any approximate time
MuscleNerd: @simplysaru if you’re on 3G or 3GS, just a day or 2 at most after 4.2 is public (just enough time to verify stuff)
So it looks like iPhone Dev Team has figured out a way to unlock baseband 05.14.02 that was bundled with iOS 4.1 for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G users.
They still need to figure out a way to unlock baseband 02.10.04 that was bandled in iOS 4.1 for iPhone 4 users.
It also remains to be seen if iOS 4.2 comes with a baseband update, in which case users will have to use tools like PwnageTool or Sn0wbreeze to upgrade to pre-jailbroken iOS 4.2 and preserve the baseband from getting updated.
