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.

Fuck it ! Maybe we shouldn't be mad about the delay because there was no real official statement about the 15'th of Jan, just fucking rumors that came from "BIG Sherif" 's statement : SURE! Wtf is that ? People were so desperate to believe that the unlock is close that they based the whole fucking unlock release on Shitty's Sherif's answer. So : Fuck You Sherif for talking out of your ass or for anything else that you might have done and you didn't. and Fuck You Dev Team for taking our time, money and hopes and wiping yourselfs with them. I don't care if Apple gave you a shit load of money, if you have or not the unlock, whatever your reasons may be the lease you can fucking do is GIVE US SOME FUCKING DETAILS ! not just .... uhmm.... no unlock for now. FUCK YOU. I started playing the lottery on the 15'th so if I win I'm gonna track all you fuckers down and lock you in a room untill I get the fucking unlock, BTW this is the last iphone I'm buying. FUCK YOU!

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 unlockiphone4.com 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.

What a bunch of loosers, they have taken all donations but now they dont have anything new from September !! Apple has naild them like bitches. I wouldnt be surprised if they announce it for June now, when iPhone 5 is out.

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..

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

am i to understand as of jan 14 no more unlocks if iphone over 4 wow thats a bummer...i will buy an unlocked iphone from apple and go to any provider so all u can kiss my tiny black firm butt cheeks
 So tired of you all.

I just want to ask you people who only complain what have you done to make things better? Have you donated money to the very smart and hardworking jailbraking community? Do you know that they do what they do for fun? I for one wouldent do anything to help you ungrateful people! We should be so gratefull that they don't try to make money from their hard work!!! Shame on you!!! They give us this for FREE and you have the balls to complain.... Eric
Yes stupid

Yes, i paid the phone to apple and 50 euros worth apps only this month. This means that i' ve paid for the development of Apple, this beeing the producer of the toys for this loosers. Each owner of an iDevice contributed to the community by paying money at list for the device. Without this, the sorry asses dev team would jailbreak a nokia phone or a tetris game
I agree
I agree - January 14, 2011 at 11:30pm

HektikLyfe - January 14, 2011 at 7:17pm
