iPhone 4 Cannot be Unlocked – All Exploits Patched

I cannot believe this! Musclenerd of iPhone Dev team has confirmed that they do not have working exploit in hand for unlocking iPhone 4 on baseband 02.10.04, 03.10.01. However, he has chosen an alternative approach for unlocking it by downgrading its baseband. But no timelines has been specified for it!

Sorry, there’s no news on the i4 unlock for those who lost 01.59 (or never had it). It’s taking longer than we wanted :(
The 06.15.00 downgrade has been pushed off by the i4 BB work…gotta prioritize else it’s constant juggling
When one of the user asked Musclenerd: how much longer would it take? Weeks or months?…seriously thinking about selling my iphone4… Musclenerd replied: there’s no way for us to know. We were making great headway with one version til we realized it was SIM dependent (!)
Musclenerd clarified that the exploit they had in their hand is SIM-dependent. Which means, it works on one of the T-Mobile SIMs, but does not work on another. They indeed developed a method where you could “fix” the SIM to work with it, but its far too complicated to be released.
PHEW!! we never thought that that unlocking baseband 02.10.04, 03.10.01 will remain a mystery for them. At least they should have said it before. We will update you as and when we receive more information on it.
