We have some good news for folks who want to unlock their iPhone.
MuscleNerd announced the good news via the following tweet:
Good progress today…everything is on track for updated ultrasn0w by Sunday/Funday at the latest (longer for iPhone4!)
iPhone Dev team had mentioned earlier that the unlocking solution for iPhone 4 users will need more effort and were not in a position to provide any further information.
The updated version of Ultrasn0w will unlock baseband 05.14.02 that was shipped with iOS 4.1 or lower.
However, it is not clear if the updated Ultrasn0w will unlock baseband 05.15.04 that was shipped with iOS 4.2.1. So users who want to unlock their iPhone should avoid upgrading to iOS 4.2.1 for now. iPhone Dev Team had warned users immediately after iOS 4.2.1 was released:
As always, ultrasn0w unlockers please stay far far away from this official firmware (and all official firmware). Wait for the ability to create custom 4.2.1. IPSWs that don’t update your baseband!
