iPhone iOS 4.1: Jailbreak and Unlock – Apple can’t stop it?

We have an interesting article for you to read now, which follows on from the latest jailbreak news for the iPhone 4 running iOS 4.1. The article in question has stated that Apple is powerless to stop users jailbreaking their devices.

According to TheRegister, Apple are going to find it very difficult to combat the latest events that have occurred in the iPhone 4 jailbreaking scene.

As we told you a few days ago, a new bootrom has been found within iOS 4.1, and will allow users to freely jailbreak their iPhone 4 once a solution becomes available.

As a result of this, TheRegister believes that Apple will have to make ‘significant hardware changes’ due to the new bootrom, but will they release a new update so soon after iOS 4.1?

Meanwhile the hackers are urging everyone to stay on iOS 4.0.2 until a jailbreak solution becomes available – which doesn’t seem to be too long until that happens.

What are your thoughts on this? What do you think Apple will/should do?

Can you unlock and iPhone on 4.1?

Tommy Murphy

^— is a idiot. There is no unlock at the moment for the modem firmware of 05.14.02. Now engrain this into ur mind for now ok. If you have updated to the newest firmware of 4.1 you may suffer the consequences and sit tight and pray that a jailbreak and unlock is released with the next firmware of 4.2, i assume. Limera1n does not unlock ur phone. It allows you to update to the 4.1 firmware and preserve your old baseband and reuse ultrasn0w to unlock again. So to reiterate…………..Sit tight,wait for the 4.2 update and then wait for the… Read more »

I bought the iphone4 I’m not leasing it, I can do whatever I want with it. And they are telling people who have jailbroken the iphone4 not to update because you can use it with the jailbreak perks. Apple need to just get over it and let the public purchase their product and get stupid paid not paid and be stupid.

Another more crap.. We knew all that about a week ago that an boot exploit has been found by Dev Teams member @pod2g..

And so far they say dont update to 4.1
And no jailbreak/Unlock will be released for 4.0.2
So please dont misguide people to stay on 4.0.2!!!
So ONLY suported Jailbreak is for 4.0.1 or older firmware.

I think that apple will release unlocked versions as soon as their contract with AT&T is over with. There is no reason to stop the inevitable

Thank you for not giving up hackers

Nice reporting donkey! 4.0.2 will ruin anyone's jailbreak! How about you everyone stay at 4.0 or 4.0.1. That is the correct answer!

While I understand that any decent software company is required to close security holes, I think Apple has taken it a little too far. I have owned Apple hardware since the beginning and have always been loyal. But I can't remember the last time I went to install Windows XP and was told "Sorry, you can't do that". I should be able to put any version of the OS on my phone as I like. Seriously Steve, I'm this close to jumping ship – most of my friends already have. I'm hoping things change.

How can apple sell unlocked phones with 4.1? What about all of those phones that were sold unlocked and they updated now they are locked again. How stupid can you get
