  • planetbeing Confirms Working Unlock & Jailbreak on iPhone 4
    A recent twitter update from @planetbeing gives more confidence to hopeful iPhone 4 owners waiting for the unlock from the dev team. Just under an hour ago, planetbeing (David Wang) posted the following messages on his twitter account:



    From the looks of things, the iPhone 4 jailbreak and unlock is stable and working on the iPhone 4. It is still suspected that the dev team are waiting for Apple to release 4.0.1 before making their jailbreak public. We chatted with Wang this morning about the unlock, and he mentioned Apple's definitely catting this mouse (or is it the other way around?):

    Apple has thrown in a few extra tricks targeted specifically at previous unlocks (including blacksn0w and ultrasn0w) in order to mitigate the damage we can do (i.e. unlocking the phone) even if we found a bug. But we got around it. :P
    Although we have no official word on a release date, based on these twitter posts, the team have ironed out most of the creases! Of course this is all still low level stuff - they'll still be streamlining it for simplicity and ease of install.



    We'll be keeping you updated as the situation progresses!

    UPDATE: Another recent tweet, this time from @MuscleNerd sheds more light on the unlock progress:

    MuscleNerd: We think we have 3 different ways to unlock once inside BB (the 3rd way was first to fully work for @planetbeing !)

      We need these guys working on the Death Grip issue. They'd prolly figure it out and fix it in 10 minutes or less lol

      Nevermind, I'm dumb. I knew what I meant but said it wrong.

      We actually need the thing jailbroken so the rest of us can try to find a solution for the antenna issue. If we wait for Apple, it will never happen.

      Here's the planetbeing post for all the haters. I love the picture of the iPhone with all app store apps. It's suppose to have cydia but he didn't realize. Kinda funny. Maybe he shouldn't post these though considering the recent news about geohot. Hopefully people don't give him too much of a hassle. Nice work though

      I hope they wait for 4.01. Let apple sort the signal issues first.

      Great news. 4.0.1 can't be that much different than 4.0

      Awesome work guys. In my worthless opinion I agree with previous posters and think it best to wait for Apple to update to 4.0.1, especially considering the pressure they're under--
