  • 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.

      @planetbeing

      Unlock will be out tonight, no worries.

      @MuscleNerd

      Most T-Mobile users in the USA using the iphone4 after tonight will need to disable 3G mode in Settings->General->Network

      Geez man, the first sentence of what you quoted says search before you post. It took all of 4 seconds on this "google" thing to find this.

      The issue is that that guide did not work for me unfortunately. I am certain tonight's unlock will solve everyone's problems.

      let's get this straight...you should not be posting on this thread on issues regarding JBing and/or unlocking 3g,3gs, etc...this thread is strictly for iphone4 owners awaiting a "carrier" unlock ...please do not make yourself look uneducated....there are about a billion how-to-guides on youtube let alone on modmyi.com...i am not trying to be mean but it's getting a bit ridiculous...

      For those of you waiting for the unlock, did you guys already trim your SIM card to a Micro SIM size?

      I had some spare AT&T Sims that I used for practice. I cut them to fit perfectly but the phone does not detect it. I just get the "No SIM card error"

      Have any of you tested your resized Micro SIM's yet?
