iOS 4.2: iPhone 4 Download and Ultrasn0w Unlock Choices

As most of you are probably aware, Apple are about to drop the update for iOS 4.2 at any moment. It has been tailored for the iPad specifically, but the update will also be worthwhile to iPhone and iPod Touch users.

On the other side of the pond, those users who decided to jailbreak with one of the various tools that released a few weeks back are now sitting patiently waiting for an unlock method to arrive.

We previously told you that a new version of ultrasn0w was in the works, and although it would be able to unlock iOS 4.2 as well as iOS 4.1, we heard that it was only going to support the iPhone 3G and 3GS, meaning iPhone 4 owners would miss out.

Bearing this in mind, what are you planning to do when Apple release iOS 4.2? Will you just bite the bullet and download to enjoy the new Airplay and Airprint features, or will you wait further in the hope that an unlock for the iPhone 4 becomes available? Let us know your thoughts on this.

Ultrasn0w iOS 4.2.1 Unlock THIS WEEK (ETA)

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2010

Please, don’t ask me again about the ETA of the new Ultrasn0w unlock for iOS 4.2.1 running on iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS with baseband 05.14.02 ONLY.

Again, the unlock will be THIS WEEK as confirmed by iPhone Dev Team head MuscleNerd..

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is to follow us on Twitter or Facebook (if you haven’t yet) and share the post with your friends (in forums and everywhere) to be the first who get the unlock. It will be before Sunday…

Hey

My iPhone 4 is running on IOS 4.1 with a baseband 1.59. Should I upgrade to 4.2 when it comes out? Is there a way to upgrade to 4.2 and still preserving the 1.59 baseband?

Well I'm using an iphone 4 ios 4.1 and been waiting for the ios 4.2 release as well as the JB and unlock too, since i think ios 4.X.X are the worst FW the Jobs has released until now, let's hope that this new firmware brings any changes and fix the bugs of my phone….. i'm really fade up and disappointed with ios 4.1 ……(

and one thing, i read in ultrasn0w.ca that they are going to release the unlock for the iphone 4 users too…. so i guess that a good news

there are a lot iPhone 4 users out there that purchased an iPhone 4 with IOS 4.1 hoping to unlock it for other networks. I am one of them and I really do not understand why ultrasn0w is waiting for the 4.2 release when there are no major enhancement for iPhone users.

In the meanwhile my iPhone is used as a very expensive web browser 🙁

Well, a lot of iPhone 4 owners would be a bit pissed off if that is the case.
I have been waiting for an unlock for nearly three weeks to be told
That my phone can't be unlocked yet. I hope it's not going to be long?

I bought a 3GS with iOS 4.1 and baseband 5.14.02, so I'm obviously waiting patiently.
