New iPhone Unlock Coming After iOS 4.3 Release

Some key players in the jailbreak community are feuding again. Members of The iPhone Dev Team and The Chronic Dev Team have been bickering back and forth about who has the best jailbreak and/or unlock for current iDevices. If you follow these folks on Twitter, you know what I’m talking about. In my opinion, this is all ridiculous. If these guys could all work together, maybe they’d get somewhere.

Out of all this arguing comes a confirmation that The iPhone Dev Team have an unlock for current basebands, but they are not releasing it until newer firmware has been officially released. Musclenerd had this to say:

Official iPhone unlock statement: no unlock will be released until after 4.2.5 or official 4.3 (whichever is last) is out

My guess is, iOS 4.3 will be out last, as iOS 4.2.5 and the Verizon iPhone 4 are probably just about ready to ship. We’ll see iOS 4.3 probably around the release of the new iPad. Again, just my best guess.

    You guys don’t get it….it’s best to wait for Apple to show their hand first…..that way the jb will last as long as possible before Apple releases the hounds and patches the exploit. It’s stupid to waste an exploit just for the sake of releasing it.

    lol…i do get it…im just getting sick and tired of itunes keep trying to get me install 4.2…
    dont want to lose all my stuff on the phone…even though i hardly use 3/4 of the apps on it..

    He said “no unlock until after 4.2.5 or 4.3”. That doesn’t mean they have an unlock. It means, even if they come up with one, they won’t release it before 4.25 or 4.3. Big difference. If they had the unlock already, they would have revealed that they had it.

    Nice spelling, ever edit before you rant?

  • Hes just saying that if they work together they could possibly release something better, wouldn’t you want a unlock that Apple would not be able to patch

    Im just curious, theres always advertisement on this website for an unlock for 4.2.1 when you click it you have to pay $20-30 and they “gaurantee” it will work on all Iphones. Are these legit? do they work? I’d pay to unlock my phone as I’m going overseas for a few weeks and it would be a huge help to use my phone with a different sim there. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to answer this question!

  • Mud Dogg

  • Blackwidowman
