On our previous post we briefly mentioned that maybe one of the reasons why iPhone Dev Team is delaying the release of the unlock for iPhone 4’s baseband 2.10.04 and 3.10.01 is because they want to make sure the newest baseband 4.10.01 can be unlocked as well.
UPDATE: AT&T iPhone can now be officially unlocked on any iOS or baseband.
@musclenerd tweeted earlier and mentioned:
Current i4 unlock goal includes til 04.10.01 (4.3b3). Very weird situation…vuln cmds are there, trying to invoke them!
[Note: vuln cmds = vulnerability commands, in simpler words mean a set of codes can be injected into a program (the baseband program in this case) and will crash it therefore revealing an exploit which can later be hacked and unlocked.]
It appears that the unlock for baseband 4.10.01 is a work in progress. Meanwhile, when he was asked if 5.14.02 can be unlocked, he replied:
ironically, the i4 unlock search has yielded 05.14 & 05.15 unlock 3G/3GS vectors… but i4 is 1st priority
That means it is now becoming possible to unlock iPhone 3G and 3GS’ baseband 5.14.02 and 5.15.04. Obviously, most of the effort will go into unlocking the iPhone 4 first, then the baseband 6.15.00 downgrader and eventually the unlock for older basebands.
We don’t wish to spoil the mood but if the goal is to unlock 4.10.01 as well, the release of the iPhone 4 unlock may be delayed even longer. :)
