Dev Team: iPhone 4 Unlock Delayed

If you’ve been patiently waiting for the iPhone 4 unlock for Basebands other than 01.59.00, the Dev Team has some bad news.

According to a recent tweet from Dev Team member MuscleNerd, it is taking longer than expected to get the unlock:

Sorry, there’s no news on the i4 unlock for those who lost 01.59 (or never had it). It’s taking longer than we wanted 🙁

With Apple releasing iOS 4.3 today, the Dev Team may have encountered new problems with the unlock. Keep holding on everyone!

    Dev team is not the same. I am pretty sure Apple is paying them for this!!!!

  • Speedlock

    bought factory unlocked IP4 in Canada, tired of this game. No more waiting. will do the same on IP5.

  • Sesquipedal

    COMPLETELY agreed with Speedlock. Spend the extra money if you truly need it/want it. WELL worth it.

  • Me too.

    They never had a unlock since 02.10.04 they are stumped without Geohots help. I suspected all along that they couldnt do it, iv been waiting since sept.

    i wonder if the ASLR is preventing injection of code?

    So, let’s recap here…

    Johnny, who had an unlocked iPhone 3 or 3GS, and depended on the unlock, bought a new iPhone 4. He knew that there was no unlock for it but he had to have the newest and best!!!

    Johnny now complains, whines and curses the Dev Team because they still haven’t been able to develop an unlock for his newest and best phone, that he knew could not be unlocked when he bought it.

    Who’s fault is that???? Hmmmm…..

    Keep up the good work, Dev Team. You do good work, despite the what may be written to the contrary.

    Possibly…but I think that’s new in iOS 4.3. We still don’t have a working unlock for the new basebands under 4.2.1.

  • Lewis Kezagger

    What does this mean for 3gs with 4.2.1 and 5.15.04

  • dr karan

  • Paul

    Isn’t Dev Team providing this service for free? If so, we have no right to complain. Keep up the good work Dev Team.

  • Exactly.

  • Smaxh

    You know they should just tell us that they can’t do it instead of these delays and false promises lol – I think apple has finally won this battle…

    ..I wonder how soon before jailbreaking is history too – haha

    dev team announced that they wouldnt release it until 4.3 comes out because then apple would just close it. it would make sense to just make it work for all firmwares up to 4.3
