iPhone 4 Unlock May Be Released In Less Than a Month

Unlock iPhone 4

We finally have some good news for iPhone 4 users who want to unlock their iPhone.

Sherif Hashim, iPhone hacking expert who had figured out a way to activate iPhone without the need for the official carrier SIM has hinted that software method to unlock iPhone 4 will be released in less than a month.

Sherif Hashim revealed this while responding to a tweet from one of his followers:

Gerges2001: @sherif_hashim I’m going to perform military service by January 16, will I get the unlock before this date? (translated in English)

Sherif_Hashim: @Gerges2001 sure

Though it might be a case of reading too much between the lines as Sherif Hashim hasn’t spelled it out clearly, he had found a baseband exploit few months back, so it looks like it can be used to unlock all basebands including baseband 02.10.04 (that came bundled with iOS 4.1) and baseband 03.10.01 (that came bundled with iOS 4.2.1)

This is good news for iPhone 4 users as Ultrasn0w released by iPhone Dev team last month can only unlock iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G by upgrading the baseband to 06.15.00.
