  • 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.

      QuickPwn was by the Dev Team.
      The Dev Team do not accept donations. I don't know who you 'donated' too but it certainly wasn't the makers of quickpwn.

      Awesome. I've fond there's only a couple of things I truly miss about my jailbroken 3GS, but I really really really miss those. Can't wait and thank you for all the hard work!

      Guys I have a question:

      By "unlock" do you mean "jailbreak + sim unlock" or "jailbreak, no sim unlock"

      Unlock is unlock - that is what MN is working on
      But you can't unlock without a JB which Comex is working on.

      Not trying to question mmi or anything (since I get TONS of information here), but this news was available for quite some time now. It was even stated in the article (dated to July 9th). I don't really account this for "news" since we're still in the unknown about when it comes to estimated release dates other than post-4.0.1 update.

      On a positive note, I'm really glad that Musclenerd, Comex, and the rest of the Dev Team is completely confident about their work and have been so insightful to the public about it. If it wasn't for Apple's reluctance and childishness about admitting their faulty design, we'd probably get a JB+unlock by the end of this week. I hope they'll live up to their mistakes and just release the update already.

      And just to let you news guys know, GeoHotz implied that he's "stepping out" of the JB game because of how the "current scene don't care unless they are getting something." I can turn this to a rant on GeoHotz, but I wont. Anyway, giving you guys a heads up about GeoHotz if you guys haven't already (assuming you guys haven't since this article is still implying that GeoHotz is working on the JB).

      So by "unlock" you mean I can put in any sim?

      MN's latest breakthrough was this morning (here in the UK anyway)

      That'll be really cool...if a jailbroken iphone 4 gives the solution to the reception issues. Would shut Steve up for good...though I doubt it'll ever happen!
