Following on from our earlier article which informed you of Apple’s GM release of iOS 4.2, iPhone Dev Team member MuscleNerd has confirmed that a new unlock method using ultrasn0w will be available shortly after Apple’s release.
As reported from RedmondPie, MuscleNerd hinted that the new unlock will be out around 2 days after Apple release the official update to iOS 4.2.
His latest Tweet reads: ”MuscleNerd: @simplysaru if you’re on 3G or 3GS, just a day or 2 at most after 4.2 is public (just enough time to verify stuff)”
Unfortunately, this unlock method will not be available for the iPhone 4 yet as MuscleNerd stated that the updated version of ultrasn0w will only support the iPhone 3G and 3GS running iOS 4.1 and 4.2 for now.
That doesn’t rule out an unlock for the iPhone 4 completely though, you’ll just have to wait longer than 3G and 3GS owners. It is definitely good news though for 3G and 3GS users who have been waiting for an unlock even before Limera1n was released.
Let us know your thoughts on this, particularly if you have an iPhone 4.
