  • MuscleNerd Now on Final Step of iPhone 4 Unlock

    Here's a welcome chunk of positive news to start the week.

    Jailbreakers get ready. MuscleNerd says his solution to iPhone 4 unlock is almost complete. Early today on Twitter, MuscleNerd tweeted the following: "@davidamodt It means the "next step" demoed in Twitter / MuscleNerd: Next step is to keep the t ... has been reached, so now there's just 1 final step " The next step alluded to dates back to July 6: “Next step is to keep the task backgrounded like we did for 3G/3GS … Backgrounded task is the unlock.”

    As the likes of MuscleNerd and GeoHot continue working toward the final phase of the iPhone 4 jailbreak, the biggest question isn't if the jailbreak will be released but when. Unfortunately, it isn't yet clear if Apple will release its promised update before or after the jailbreak is made public. While a case could be made for either a pre or post jailbreak release of iOS 4.0.1, it doesn't necessarily appear at the moment that Apple and the modding community are still plotting their respective releases in conjunction with one another.

    At this point, at least from Apple's perspective, it doesn't seem logical to delay the release of iOS 4.0.1 in hopes of preemptively patching any jailbreaking exploits. As the critics of iPhone 4's "death grip" mount (including a withdrawal of support from Consumer Reports), for once it seems that the jailbreaking community may not be on the most immediate radar of concerns for Cupertino. Indeed, these days Apple has much bigger problems than unlocked handsets.

      My guess is the finishing part is to package it up for public release. Im sure Muscle Nerd and the rest dont need it packaged to use it which is why they have jailbroken and now unlocked iPhones. I could be wrong though.

      Wrong on almost all counts.
      To Unlock they need to be JB - but, I believe they are using Comex' JB - it doesn't mean it's ready to be released but it will be.
      Sherif Hashim's exploit works on all basebands including 05.13.04 that comes with iOS4 for the 3GSh is why it was worth keeping secret for so long. I had no problem keeping it secret as it was not mine to release but there were times when he wanted too. It was very hard for him not to release but he is a very good man that listened to reason and has now helped far more people than otherwise!

      Hashim's exploit has absolutely nothing to do with the actual act of jailbreaking the phone. His exploit crashes the baseband. This crash in turn allows for 3rd party code to be injected into the baseband and thereby unlock the phones. The only relation Hashim's exploit has with jailbreaking is that you have to jailbreak your phone in order to gain access to the root directory and be able to execute the unlock coding.

      Yawn!! Another day without a jailbreak or unlock. Me thinks they are not as far along as we all thought they were. Oh well, all we can do is wait and hope it's released soon.

      I need jailbreak. Wah wah wah. Do most of us a favor and find something better to occupy your time until it is released. Your post will not speed up the process, it will be released when the time is right. That time is not now. Ahhh I feel better.

      This was not directed at anyone it was just a random outburst. Lol.
