  • MuscleNerd Hints Promising 4S Unlock is in the Works

    MuscleNerd's tweeted photo lends credibility to progress in unlocking an iPhone 4S.

    According to MuscleNerd's recent tweet about his Thanksgiving weekend, he seems to have been on double duty; spending time with the family for Thanksgiving, and pinpointing a potential iPhone 4S unlock. Although I can't speak for the first, it seems that significant progress has been made towards unlocking an iPhone 4S. His tweeted photo showcases what he has thus far.



    Many of us may look at this picture and are utterly confused on what tale it should tell. For those of us who don't speak or read the "native language," let's take this at face value; this picture deems that progress is being made, and the photographer of this photo is telling the story as "It's promising." The saga is for sure not finished, but it would seem that the story is escalating little by little each day. And this point in the story is another milestone crossed.

    The Thanksgiving season is not only about spending time with family, but expressing gratitude for all the wonderful things in your life. Don't forget to thank MuscleNerd for all his hard work - he's a vital component to ensure us jailbreakers the freedom we so crave!

    I express my gratitude for him here.

    Note: In terms of other stories and news about an iPhone 4S unlock being worked on elsewhere or that there's a working method, I would be extremely wary about what you read and believe. The jailbreak teams have never given us a reason to loosen our trust - let's stick to what progress they have for us, shall we?

      I pre-ordered and received my iP4s on the first day it was released, but it's still new-in-box inactivated until MuscleNerd comes through!! IMO, iP4 jailbroken is superior to stock iP4s.
      "Patience, Daniel-son."
      I'm with you!! I check mmi more than I talk to my girlfriend a day.. Patiently waiting on an untethered jb or anything else cool y'all bring to light ( like the native FaceTime 3g unlock ) and even though tethered really isn't that bad, I want to tell you hard working hackers how much I personally appreciate what you do for all of us "end users" out here! From the bottom of our little pwndapple shaped hearts "THANK YOU GUYS!!"

      MN still finds the time to help out when I amount of my depth. I do my best to shield him from most, but when indeed him, he is always willing to step in. He is one of the nicest guys I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

      Why does everyone keep saying jailbreak? This is NOT about the jailbreak. It's about the unlock. Back to the OP, thanks for the info on the UNLOCK. Many people are waiting patiently for it.

      yes, this about unlock. but even if an unlock comes out for the 4S, a JB is required to install the unlock sw. so a JB is imminent for an unlock to even happen

      I wish Apple would unlock phones when you can prove contract is up and or you paid full price.
      In both cases the phone is "Off the hook" since the subsidy is now not used

      Its just a game they play to keep you locked to paying for service

      Incorrect my friend. If you go to apple you can buy it outright. If u have 649 to drop on an iPhone, who's to say you just want an iPhone without any service?

      Im99% positive you could get it factory unlocked directly. Give apple a call, they'll tell you straight bud.

      You can now buy unlocked iPhone 4s in the USA (you could buy any iPhones unlocked in the UK) but that does not help people wjho bought previous iPhones locked to AT&T who's contract has now expired - it is only this month that Apple in the uSA started officially selling unlocked iPhones.
