    Default iPhone 4 Unlock Less Than a Month Away?


    There has been some news about the 4.2.1 jailbreak lately, but the unlock has been missing in action for some time. However, we got a little ray of light about ultrasn0w on Twitter from Egyptian baseband hacker Sherif Hashim, who worked on the 3.1.3 unlock. He's still keeping it on the down low - English-only speakers would have missed it - but he's indicated the unlock should be ready in about a month.

    Sherif Hashim found an exploitable baseband crash that could bring an unlock for basebands 05.14.02 and 02.10.04 back in November. Very little has been heard since then, and nothing definitive as to the timing on a new ultrasn0w for iOS 4.1 and 4.2. One impatient unlocker sent Hashim a tweet in Arabic, saying he was going away for military service on January 16 and asking if the unlock would be ready by then. Hashim's response, in English: "sure."

    The main reason we don't get a lot of news from these guys is that they need to spend their time hacking, not sending out updates. As Hashim promised yesterday, "whenever it is ready for beta testing and use, u ll all be notified thru @MuscleNerd's Twitter or mine." So consider following both on Twitter, and we'll also have the latest news available for you here.

    We also don't get a lot of info from Sherif at times because he is busy doing brain surgery, that guy is a beast!

    Great choice of words there, are they our personal slaves? Maybe they don't give a lot of news because they need to spend their time with their lives, family, work, etc? Just saying...

    Great news unlock is hopefuly coming out for some of my friends...

    ummmm this article was about the unlock but ok. You can jailbreak it at anytime, it will just be tethered if you have an iphone 4, ipad, or new bootrom iphone. If my only option was to have a tethered jailbreak, i would until then dont complain, just jailbreak and wait for untethered.

    On what? The 4.2.1 baseband on iPhones (beside iPhone 4) is 5.15.04. I don't have an iPhone 4 or and iPad so i guess its one of those two. But for those two devices i think the unlock will be take a little longer

    Might update to 4.2.1 if untethered jb comes available. Still on 4.0.1 bb 01.59.00...didn't see a point in upgrading. What are advantages other then being able to find my iPhone with 4.2.1?
