iPhone Dev-Team Says No Unlock Until After iOS 4.2.5 or iOS 4.3

Posted January 14, 2011 at 12:38pm by iClarified
The iPhone Dev-Team has announced that there will be no unlock released until after iOS 4.2.5 or 4.3 is released.

Official iPhone unlock statement: no unlock will be released until after 4.2.5 or official 4.3 (whichever is last) is out

This is of course disappointing for many but overall in the best interests of the community.

All i can say==Dev-team suck...

I think they have stopped this feature because iPhone 5 or 4g whichever one is next would come unlocked. You can either buy the phone from apple and choose your carrier or get it from the carrier at a discounted rate... Just my thought of what I have been thinking.... Let's see if apple does the US the favor of that..

So due to the after this, after that from devteam... Does anyone know whether paid options available online such as actually can jailbreak+unlock any firmware/baseband as they claim they do? Or are those a scam?

The current untethered jailbreak works well. It works fine with my ipad and iphone4. GPS, safari,skype,bluetooth and WIFI....all working fine. THANKS YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HARD WORK. KEEP UP A GOOD WORK DEV TEAM!!!

They can't jailbreak it or unlock it anymore, al least properly (the current one needs some special SHSH and even so it has lots of bugs) , they said before the 4.2 was released that jaibreak / unlock is ready and in maximum 2 days from official 2.4 release they will release a jailbreak/unlock for this ... but it never happened :) now they claim they have a jaibreak for 4.3 :) that's funny I'm 100% they don't they are just postponing the things ... so that's it for the "jailbreak" story , you'll have to play by apple store "closed" rules from now on :) I've figured out all this some time ago, so I've sold the my iphone4 (until some "believers" out there are still ready to buy this shit), bought a Nexus S (which I was able to root and unlock next day). The same apps I had on my iphone I could find them on my android phone, so I'm happy with my new phone, it's better than iphone and got rid of the worry of waiting for some "fake" "jailbreaks" that will never come.

Sure Dev-team.. another false statement.. you guys have nothing other than just big mounth. This was not cat and mouse game anymore. False to have tether jailbreak.. the claiming will working on untether jailbreak. then said it will be delay. then said won release after verizion iphone 4 launch. Unlock false false again.. Honestly, Jailbreak and unlock are no long interest Even I currenlty own all 3 Generation of Iphone 3G, 3GS and 4G. the different between Dev. Team and Gehotz. Dev Team actually talk a lot but work just little. Devteam my suggestion to your team just shut. You done nothing to the community lately. beside talking this and that then false to release it. I like to see thing in action. Not in talking..

LOL, I subscribe to that !
I agree
I agree - January 14, 2011 at 11:30pm
Thx to Dev-Team for their hard working.

Latest BETA worked Fine Here, and I Think will do an Unlock? I'm on iPad, so no need, but Untethered, Jailbroken, Working Fine. Bluetooth GPS works, Skype is Fine.......
manuel - January 14, 2011 at 9:30pm
with the last one, you broke GPS. any update or you don't give a dammm???
T.C. - January 14, 2011 at 7:50pm
So no unlock for now. Does that also rule out a jailbreak not requiring beta?
I think so
I think so - January 14, 2011 at 9:17pm
Actually, sheriff (unlocker) announced his delay of the unlock after musclenerd (Dev Team - jailbreakers) announced they will stop until the new upgrade comes. So it doesn't rule out, it's a consequence. The same outcome, it's shit

You DO realize these guys work for free right? You seem to have this attitude like they owe you or something. Be grateful for what you have already received because by the tone of your post, you didn't even deserve that.
HektikLyfe - January 14, 2011 at 7:17pm
So doesn't that mean 4.3 by default?
Vanja - January 14, 2011 at 4:22pm
By the time 4.2.5/4.3 is out, 5.0 will be released. So why release it then when they could wait for 5.0... Fact is, nobody is paying them for their work (unless maybe now Apple for NOT doing it), but Dev Team got really lazy.
TheStraightMusic - January 14, 2011 at 4:20pm
This is why you should buy an iPhone from An APPLE STORE then go to your chosen carrier and buy a simcard and put it into your factory unlocked iphone!! That way no locked iPhone!! Thats what i did with my iPhone 4!

Is it just me or is this starting to sound a whole lot like excuses to me?
f2e88c4 - January 14, 2011 at 3:04pm
Excuses because the DevTeam doesnt have shit. Im going legit.
Axe - January 14, 2011 at 2:23pm
They don't have nothing. There are people waiting from October and bought devices hoping that these "Gods" will do anything. They postponed for the community. I'm the community, you are the community. Who's interest it is ?
TITU - January 14, 2011 at 1:32pm
Thanks for bad news lollll. we hope and made our mind we also wait for new ultrasn0w unlock for all base band with 02.10.04 unlock iphone 4 . sharif_hassaim says must unlock iphone 4 02.10.04 wiat for mid january 2011. but we have time just wait for 15 january 2011. we hope may be re lace this new ultrasn0w sharif_hassaim.
iPhoneMK - January 14, 2011 at 1:04pm
Yes, it is bad news because we'll have to wait, but in fact is GOOD news! Because this means they already and finally made it and they are just postponing in the best interests of the community. Until this we were only told "we are working". So, I'm in fact happy. :))
Alex - January 14, 2011 at 1:17pm
I guarantee you that something will come up when the last one is released and they are working on it. I saw this coming from a mile away. There will always be one reason or another to postpone it. It's very aggravating. Didn't they say they created a method of jailbreaking and unlocking that couldn't be changed unless they change the hardware? Whatever. I'm not checking this site any longer because I only came here for jailbreak news. Since that won't happen (theoretically) until after 4.3 is released, then what's the point? I know, I know, stop whining and release your own jailbreak. If I could, I would. Peace

THIS AGAIN !!!! - I have to agree with Alex, always more and more reasons to postpone. I actually dont think they have a unlock for 4.2.1 so the easiest thing to say is POSTPONE FOR THE BEST INTEREST OF THE COMMUNITY. Why dont they just release it - if they have it - for those who want and eventually get stuck on it (will serve them right). Anyway, it seems that the DevTeam still cant match Apples developers and I dont think they ever will. Yeah yeah tell me about doing it myself. I dont jailbreak or unlock my iphone - i just follow the news and whats happening. SO to the DEV TEAM .... EXCUSES EXCUSES EXCUSES
blahblahblackshseep - January 14, 2011 at 2:45pm
Actually... this is exactly what they said when the newer baseband after 2.10.04 came out. And guess what? people are still waiting. This isn't to take away from what they're doing for the community as it's all very much appreciated. But this doesn't mean they have anything yet. Prepare for a longer wait.
