We just gave you the bad news that there won’t be an iPhone 3GS iOS 4.1 jailbreak, and unfortunately, we have more bad news, especially for unlockers. According to iPhone hacker Veence, there will not be an unlock for any baseband on iOS 4.1.

So why is that? I’ve got my ideas…

I believe the Dev Team is currently working on an unlock for the basebands mentioned in the above tweet. I also believe they are close to completion. Knowing that iOS 4.2 is just around the corner, it would be a bad move to reveal their exploit to Apple now, which would leave them enough time to patch it in iOS 4.2.

So what can you do? If you haven’t updated to iOS 4.1 yet, you will be able to use PwnageTool soon to update to iOS 4.1 while preserving your baseband. After that, you’ll be able to download UltraSn0w from Cydia to unlock your iPhone.

If on the other end you have already updated to iOS 4.1, then there is no going back as it is currently impossible to downgrade the baseband.

Bummed out?

    I’m still on ios 4.0 and used jailbreakme to jailbreak my phone. What exactly do I have to do tomorrow in order to upgrade to 4.1? I’m still new to the iPhone unlock scene so sorry if that’s a dumb question.

      @Etown
      Look up the difference between unlocking and jailbreaking. If you have a factory locked phone, like locked to AT&T iPhones in US, and you want to use your phone with a different carrier, then you depend on an unlock.

      So to answer a question with a question, are you dependent on the unlock? If yes, you should use pwnage tool to update to 4.1 without updating your baseband and jailbreak with whatever jb available. This way you’ll enjoy the ability to unlock your jb’n iPhone fw 4.1

        I don’t need an unlock, I’m on a regular iPhone 4 with 4.0 ios and have it jailbroken, all I want to do is simply upgrade to 4.1 when it becomes available tomorrow. Is there going to be another website like jailbreakme.com that I go to? Or there another way I have to upgrade to 4.1 now?

    I’ve got good news.

    Geohot has an unlock called Limesn0w. Please investigate if this is indeed legit before making it news.

      All Geohot accounts on Twitter are fake, his words not mine.

    do i need a “unlock” if i have already done a carrier unlock before i initially jailbroke my phone? So if i do a 4.1 upgrade and jailbreak it, i can still use my iphone on any carrier right?

  • joe

    People leaving negative comments are just plain stupid.
    Why can’t you understand that revealing exploits hurts the future of this whole movement.

    Impatient children…

  • Ana

    I did the jailbreak with limera1n on 3GS iOS 4.1 baseband 5.14.02 — I think you got your info wrong there. Still no unlock though.

  • becool61

    good luck to you all

  • Freddy

    I downgraded the ios. 4.1 to 4.01 with tinyumbrella and it works fine

    • How can u downgrade from 4.1 to 4.01 and also downgrade the baseband!? thats bullsh*t

  • Shane

    Thanks for the explanation devs, sadly I’m walking around with an iPod touch. Damn u Steve Jobs lol. Any ideas when 4.2 will be released and unlockable?

  • issa

    i have an iphone 3gs iOS 4.1 baseband 5.14.02 i jailbreak it with limerain and waiting for the unlock ? which software i shall use and when it will be released ??
    thank u

  • Missy

    Ok I am sorry if u have already answered this but I really don’t understand ANYTHING u are saying. I bought an unlocked iPhone 3G took it home and my son connected it to iTunes where it said to update, so we did. Now apparently that was the wrong thing to do bc nobody can unlock it now. Is there anyway to erase the update n reset the the whole phone so we can use it?

    • Kenny Love

      did u get any help with this? ive the same problem, bought a 2nd hand 3gs and it was already updated
