Finally! After weeks of hard work, MuscleNerd and PlanetBeing (of Android port for iPhone fame) of the iPhone Dev Team has managed to unlock the new iPhone 4 running on iOS 4. For those of you who don’t know, carrier unlock for US iPhone 4s on AT&T required complete rewrite of ultrasn0w software because of the new baseband OS in iPhone 4.
[IMPORTANT UPDATE: JailbreakMe 2.0 has been released, which can jailbreak iPhone 4, iPad and iPod touch. Follow our guide posted here to jailbreak iPhone 4 / iPhone 3GS on iOS 4.0.1, and here to jailbreak iPad on iOS 3.2.1, and here to jailbreak iPod touch 3G / 2G on iOS 4. Unlock guide for iPhone 4 can be found here, and for iPhone 3GS here]
Looks like I now have an unlocked iPhone 4. 🙂

And now that we have both the next version of Spirit like all iOS device userland jailbreak, and unlock for iPhone 4 ready, the wait is now probably for Apple to push the next firmware update i.e. iOS 4.0.1 / 4.1 for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and 3G before these jailbreak and unlock tools are made available for public consumption. Stay tuned as will let you know whenever these new tools are available for primetime use! [via Twitter]
