While the iPhone Dev Team are working hard to unlock GSM iPhone, it looks like some folks have figured out a way to flash CDMA iPhone 4 to work on pay-as-you-go carrier Cricket Wireless’ network in the US.

Few weeks back, we had reported that Verizon iPhone 4 had been unlocked to work on China Telecom’s CDMA network.

Engadget reports:

As any astute follower of the “pay-as-you-go” world knows, there are quite a few back alley Cricket dealers (and quite a few main street ones as well) that will happily flash any phone you give them for use on their network — and not even Verizon’s CDMA iPhone is immune.

You can also checkout the video of Verizon iPhone 4 working on Cricket’s network:

Technically, flashing refers to the overwriting or re-writing of the phone’s firmware, which in terms of the iPhone would be the baseband. We’re not sure how it was done but it looks like you first need to jailbreak CDMA iPhone and then flash it
