  • iPhone 4 Unlock Release in 48 Hours


    I chatted with David Wang today, aka planetbeing, and he let me know he's doing a 48 hour test period from now, and then will release the unlock.

    The iPhone 4 unlock is already working and remains in testing. Planetbeing and MuscleNerd have been testing it a while, and it's nearly perfect - but needs a couple days for some finishing touches. With the jailbreak being released just now, I figured an unlock status update would quench a thousand threads from starting.

    Cody has been in Scotland for a couple weeks, and is also testing the iPhone 4 unlock with O2 and various carriers in Europe. So far it's been smooth and working just like how it should - without you noticing. Toss in some APN settings and you're off with an unlocked iPhone 4.

    The iPhone 4 compatible version of ultrasn0w will be downloadable through Cydia, same as normal. It will unlock a multitude of device/OS combinations. Of course we'll let you know as soon as it's officially released.

    Meanwhile - we're hosting planetbeing's new iPhone app, Signal. It's available through the Cydia Store now, and works on 3G, 3G[S], and the iPhone 4. Signal maps the cell towers you are connected to and displays detailed cellular information from the baseband. Pretty nifty app which runs $4.99. The Dev Team and planetbeing don't accept donations - but these guys have put a LOT of work into the iPhone and the most recent unlock and jailbreak! Grab that app in Cydia asap to give back to planetbeing - and get a sweet app as well.

      Pretty sure he was referring to a Safari based jailbreak, though that still doesn't make sense since this is an unlock post and a lot of users weren't even around for that anyway. I remember SSHing and using Terminal for unlocks, the emergency call screen into your sys prefs, revirginizing basebands.....haha, now THOSE were the good old days.

      I just jailbroke my iphone, but my carrier disappeared. So I get no 3GS network anymore, but I assume that the unlock will clear this problem...?

      !-Problem Resolved-! Was very simple, I just rebooted my iphone and the carrier came back, and works all fine and normal and with Cydia!

      Search before you post. But since you're an uber-n00b, I'll make it easy on you; ultrasn0w works on all current 3GS basebands so just install that thru cydia. You're welcome

      I went to the website, accessed Cydia. Could not connect first time. Clicked on Do it the Easy way (or something like that) in Cydia. It loaded and did not ask or restart my phone. I powered down and now it's hung at the Apple icon.
      It just goes black for a second and comes back to the Apple icon.
      Should I just restore it. I was able to get it to shut down by holding the power button down.
      Any suggestions??? Thanks.

      I can't even purchase it yet. It's not linked to the store and just says forbidden when trying to download.

      Hey everyone, I could really use some help. I apologize if this has been covered, but I am legally blind and it takes me a while to read, so with all the posts today, I may have not gotten to it.

      I successfully unlocked on the website today, however now I don't seem to be able to unlock. I downloaded ultrasn0w, and have since uninstalled/reinstalled as well, but it is as if I never did. I push my sim in, and it just says different sim card and tells me to connect to iTunes. If anyone could help I would really appreciate it. I patiently waited, after accidentally upgrading to 4.0, for an unlock, still paying my phone bill, and was so excited this morning. I would love to have my phone back!

      Thanks a lot guys.

      The release today was not the unlock, it was the jailbreak, two different things altogether. The unlock should be released soon, check back often for the updated news on "unlock!"

      Hope this helped you!

      Hey thanks a lot. I think I got confused when reading the ultrasn0w info. I thought that since I JB my phone yesterday, that now ultrasn0w would unlock it since it is a 3gs on the latest baseband. More waiting but in the meantime I can reacquaint myself with a JB iPhone.

      Thank you for the reply.
