iPhone Dev Team Working Hard To Release Tools To Jailbreak And Unlock iOS 4; Warn Unlockers To Avoid Upgrading To iOS 4

Redsn0w 0.9.5 beta for iOS 4 GM

Apple has finally released iOS 4 for iPhone and iPod Touch users.

One of the things that users who have jailbroken and unlocked their iPhone are eagerly waiting to find out is whether iOS 4 can be jailbroken and unlocked.

iPhone Dev Team have just published a blog post advising users who need to software unlock their iPhone to avoid updating to iOS 4 until they release their tools to jailbreak and unlock iPhone iOS 4:

We are working hard on a release to our tools that will jailbreak your device (or give you iOS 4 via the jailbreak train) and provide you with a carrier unlock.

Until these tools are released you should hold off on updating your device until we have fully tested our tools with all the relevant devices.

If you rely on hacktivation or a carrier unlock (ultrasn0w) then you should not  upgrade until we have fully tested and released our tools.

Don’t be tempted with unofficial PwnageTool/redsn0w bundles or releases, just check here or our team twitter for real time release information.

Remember, we risk our devices so you don’t have to (but this time anyone who has made a mistake upgrading their baseband firmware at 3.1.3 or 4.0 should be OK real soon 😉

They have also published a video, which says it all:

MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team has reconfirmed over the weekend that it will be possible to unlock the new baseband (05.13.04) that is included in iOS 4 Golden Master and that it might be possible to also unlock iPhone 4. Its the same baseband in iOS 4 that was released today, so expect to get the good news soon.

As always, we’ll let you know as soon as we get a confirmation from the Dev Team. Stay tuned here at iPhone Hacks or follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.
