Some very comforting news on this cold Thanksgiving day, as MuscleNerd confirmed today that the iPhone unlock for iOS 4.2.1 will most likely be released this Sunday or even before.

This is good news, especially for those of you who still are using an iPhone 3GS or 3G. It is however not as good news for iPhone 4 users because there won’t have an unlock for iPhone 4 for a little while…

The Dev Team has already released a jailbreak for iPhone iOS 4.2.1 with RedSn0w earlier this week. It is unclear at this point if the unlock will work for the latest iOS 4.2.1 baseband update, but it’s safe to assume so.

So in short, if you’re on an iPhone 3G or 3GS, you will most likely get an unlock this weekend. If you have an iPhone 4 with iOS 4.2.1, you’re going to have to wait a little longer (no ETA at this time).

As usual, we’ll publish up to date news and tutorials once this UltraSn0w unlock drops. Stay tuned!

  • kurt

    youre not serious!! first you said an unlock for BB 2.10 will be available once ios 4.2 is out, now you say its not??!!?! and where is geohot with his limesn0w?
    im tired of waiting with my iphone 4 to be unlocked please help me :\

    • whatchasay

      it will be ready when it is ready… quit your bitching OR throw away your iPhone 4 and get an iPhone 3 if you wanna unlock iPhone!!! OR unlock it yourself.

    • Or switch your damn carrier. these guys work really hard on this stuff. come on now dude, stop whining. this is why i wait for phone to come to Verizon, so i can just JB and not have to unlock.
      P.S. i have Verizon. best. Droid Eris, iPad 3G w/ Verizon whoo.

  • Rohit

    when will the unlock for ios 4.1 be released…..

    • Burge

      It should work with 4.1aswell

      • Julien

        R u sure the unlock will work on iphone4 4.1 bb 2.10
        Because i’ ve been stuck for more than 2 months and still waiting
        Anybody can help???

      • Burge

        Not iPhone 4

      • bldxbill

        Do u recommand us to update to 4.2?? u sure it gonna come out for 4.2.. if I update it to 4.2 and jailbreak nad it doesn’t work, then??

      • Burge

        Stick with 4.1 for now , only update if the unlock will work for you

  • Eric

    then create the unlock yourself, or buy a phone that can be unlocked. These devs are doing this for free, so quit complaining. Its nobody’s fault that your phone can’t be unlocked. So sit tight and it will be here before you know it. Pisses me off when people just WANT WANT WANT with the jailbreaks and unlocks. These devs dont owe anybody anything so please quit with the WHINING!

    • Eye Fone

      Word.

      • Rob

        I sure hope the devs know that we appreciate their hard work and intelligence.

    • whatchasay

      WORD!

    • Burge

      WORD!

      • Suavedude

        Word!!!

    • exactly.

  • Eric

    @Rohit are you serious? Did you not just read the above blogpost? No wonder the Devs get annoyed with the stupid ass questions. Half of the n00bs to jailbreaking cant think before clicking an update button, let alone a blog post submit button, jesus christ! READ ABOVE POST BEFORE POSTING damn it!

  • Justin

    Right on target Eric!!!!

  • Mark

    Hey iPhone users

    Does anybody know if the redsnow bug has been worked out yet? Cause when I jailbreaked my iPhone cydia was crashing when I tried to open it and the LCD was flickering.

    • Eric

      Depends on the device…you will have to go back into redsn0w and rejailbreak it everytime you reboot or let the battery die. just click”Just boot Tethered for now” New bootrom 3gs and Ipad and iphone 4 are tethered boots. Anything like old 3gs bootrom and 3g can boot untethered with redsn0w now.

  • Zeeshan Chawdhry

    @Sebastien hi , have u tested ios 4.21 ??? i mean i have ios 4.02 and it has got some bugs

    how much stable is os ios 4.21 ????

  • besim

    jailbreak ios 4.2.1 with redsn0w on iphone 3gs is working fine for me just dont install iblacklist app from cydia.

  • Michael

    anyone know when its gonna be out for hte iphone 4 running 4.2.1? i will PAY for someone to tell me how seriously.

    • leo

      Atm no unlock is available for your device. Wait until news special for the 4 comes out.

  • Appleeverything

    Demand demand oh my god stop updating read before you update bb exploits are hard to find buy an unlocked fone the devteam do all this for us for free out of there own pockets nil donations top software

  • Appleeverything

    There’s always lots of warning not to update but these n00bs still do it then bitch demand take geohot he closed his Twitter blog to all these ungratfull people

  • deema

    what about iphone4 users ? still use device as ipod… how long ? a day? month? eyar?

  • bldxbill

    hey how about 4.1 and baseband of 5.14.02?? do u recommand to update to 4.2?? anyone??

    • Matthew

      @bldxbill, from the sound of things it seems as if this unlock will work for for baseband 5.14.02 on iphone 3gs and lower. IT IS NEVER A GOOD IDEA TO UPDATE iOS IF YOU NEED AN UNLOCK. Wait till ur told its safe to do so. U can always use sn0wbreeze to make custom IPSW w/o the updated bb. Sn0wbreeze will tell u if the version ur using doesn’t support ur stock ipsw to create custom. U can find snowbreeze @ http://ih8sn0w.com/index.php/welcome.snow for latest version and info. Many thanks to ALL Hackers/Unlockers/ and any1 else contributing to the community.

  • RR

    I am new to the iPhone world. I have been reading about the jailbreaking and unlocking but have yet to understand it completely. I have a new iPhone 4 that has 4.1 installed and would like to unlock it to use other carrier’s SIM cards/networks while traveling but didn’t want to lose any of its other functions like Safari, etc., etc., which I read somewhere could be a problem when an iPhone is jailbroken and/or unlocked. Because I have no baseband from an earlier version saved, does this mean I am out of luck even when an unlock for 4.2.1 becomes available? Should I install 4.2.1 now or wait?

    If anyone could explain this to me or point where I could find the information, I would appreciate it.

    • Burge

      Do not update yet , there is no unlock yet for the i4 it’s best to wait and keep a eye on this blog

  • bldxbill

    icic.. thx.. so.. u recommand me not to update it to 4.2? lol.. I have 3g. and currently under 5.14.02 baseband. 🙂 so.. u sure that it gonna come out this sunday to unlock 5.14.02? thx.. a lot Dev team.. 🙂 waited so long for this.. i’m appricate for u guys hard work.. 🙂 thx..

  • bldxbill

    i kno which version im using.. im using 4.1, 5.14.02 and 3g… so.. it will work right? for 4.1, 5.14.02 this sunday??

    • sk@tta

      Yes it will work. Im also using a 3G with iOS 4.1 on 5.14.02 Base Band.

      And he said Sunday Latest which means it just might come before Sunday

  • stevo

    People who want an unlock buy the phone from Apple Store and use with whatever carrier they like.. unlocks should be banned they just encourage crime

    • sak500

      STFU

    • KooKBeater

      Crime??? You my friend, are gay!

      • stevo

        yes crime, when there is an unlock available gangs will be looking for ppl to rob the iphone4 off, even if you block it with the carriers in your country they send them to places like Nigeria to sell them. KookBeater are you the tin man from the Wizard of Oz?

        If you wanted an unlocked one buy from Apple Store Simples you stingy ass ppl.

    • gangbangel

      How do you think I got my Iphone, My Gang member gifted it to me, if not I would never have known of such an amazing device. SO next thing youre gonna tell me gangs should be banned…Foo!

  • martin

    so… seb… basically for those of us with a 3g and os 4.1 and firmware 5.14.02 will have to upgrade to the os 4.2.1 and then unlock it? or can you elaborate a little more on how the process will be in order to unlock this baby?… i am just curios and want to visualize the process and understand it and minimize the possibility of messing things up… you understand right?
    mac

    • KooKBeater

      If you are jailbroken on 5.14.02 all you will need to do is unlock with the new Ultrasn0w when it comes out. Updating to 4.2.1 would be a big mistake if you are already unsure of what you are doing.

  • Thor

    People please take a deep breath. If you are not absolutely sure about the possible ramifications of upgrading DO NOT DO IT!!! Wait a few days or a week and read the reports from experienced jailbreakers/unlocks. The tools are not fully tested yet and new bugs could emerge. When the process for your device and firmware is fully tested there will be plenty of step by step guides posted with lots of feedback from users. 4.2.1 does not offer any must have right now functionality. You are adults or nearly so. Do not act like my 5 year old the week before Christmas.

    Play it safe do not do anything yet.

  • Ralphy

    Hi… Have 3GS 4.1 bb 5.14.02… I can’t wait for the unlock this Sunday… Been waiting long… Thanks a lot to the dev team for their hard work… GREATLY APPRECIATED….

  • Icyhotonmynuts

    If its SUCH a big deal that your iphone work on all gsm carriers, you whiners should have dug deep in your cheap ass pockets and bought the factory unlocked iphone 4 like i did. Man, these complainers are annoying.

  • thefallen

    This freaking people… Think before you post bs…

  • Thiboo

    My iPhone 4 version 4.1 so can unlock too?
    Thx in advance

  • Adrian

    hye, 1 question. did the unlock works for 3G iOS3.1.3 bb 5.14.02?

    • matthew

      @adrian, I think u should check ur phone info again. A 3g ios 3.1.3 shouldn’t have a baseband 5.14.02, unless u previously upgraded to ios 4.1 then tried a downgrade that only worked on the ios and not the bb. And to answer ur question yes, the soon to b released unlock should work on ALL 3g(s) iphones that are ios 4.1 with bb 5.14.02. And 2g iphones are already completly jb’d and unlocked.

  • Adrian

    Yeah. i did upgrade it to 4.1, but its seem a little bit laggy. So i decided to downgrade it to 3.1.3. Owh, ok.. so the procedure to unlock my 3G iOS 3.1.3 bb 5.14.02 will be the same as iOS4.1 bb 5.14.02 rite? anyway thx for the infromation matt =)

    • matthew

      Yeah, since u upgraded u got stuck on the new baseband. Come Sunday you should be fine to upgrade to ios 4.1 again then jb n unlock according to the methods that will b provided. U shouldn’t have any problems with ur iphone being slow, just make sure u always use the stock ipsw for ios 4.1 which the link can b found on this forum . At the top of this screen click on “downloads” and click on the link for the CORRECT ipsw for YOUR iphone. That is IMPORTANT! If u accidentaly used a ipsw for the wrong device that could have been ur problem. Iphones are eachly unique. The “correct” steps for anything is very device dependant. How to do something on one phone might not b exactly the same for another.

  • Irretracable. *thumbs up*

    Ok. I know that everyone is asking the dumb questions and what not, but I have a more elaborate question. I’m currently trying to unlock my gf’s iPhone for a Christmas present she doesn’t know about. When I bought it refurbished, it was on 4.1. Idk what baseboard and all of that hoopla is, but this sunday (or before then) will be the day where I can unlock for 4.1? And if so, do I have to rejailbreak it? Thanks much.

    • matthew

      As long as it is currently jb’d and doesn’t have ios 4.2.1 u should be fine but it never hurts to “restore” ur device to correct stock ipsw for ur specific device, ie, 3g or 3gs and follow the jailbreak/unlock procedures. Oh and I mean stock 4.1 ipsw not 4.2.1.

  • Cerberus

    Crime is what AT&T do with us. I wonder what would you say If you hold locked iPhone in your hand. We if ultrasn0w is crime dev-team would be terrorist that do for mankind

    • Cerberus

      Some error message man 🙂

  • these unlocker guys are just too lazy they are not working fast enough or maybe they are not intelligent, unlock it already you couch potatoes.

    p.s:when you find the unlock solution then why don’t the iphone dev team come down to my house and unlock my iphone 4, i just don’t feel like jailbreaking and unlocking myself i am just not in mood to do that, but i do need my iphone unlocked with 4.2.1

  • Matthew

    Wow joey, that’s really something to say! U say ur too lazy to unlock it yourself and u have the nerve to call the great ppl that make our lives better to where we hav a choice on our sp r lazy couch potatoes. U should be nicer to ppl, especially the jb’er n unlocker’s b4 they decide to quit doing this for us. All their hard work is provided to us free of charge. If u wanted a completly upgradable unlocked phone, then mayb u should hav spent the money for one that way u can’t complain. Oh n 4 u ppl reading this blog, I and telling every1 to spend the money for an apple unlocked phone, do u realize that even with 1 of thoses u still rely on the comm. FOR A JAILBREAK! That way u could use cydia and get better apps. A JAILBREAK N UNLOCK ARE TWO VERY DIFFERENT THINGS PPL!

    Ungrateful ingrates!

    • baby you are so gay, i want to have gay sex with you, please f-u-c-k me

      • Matthew

        ha ha ha, very funny! but thanks for da compliment, “I Think?” anyways hav a very GAY DAY!

    • Thor

      I read his comment as sarcasm pointed at all the whiners, but I could be wrong. If I am wrong, just remember Joey that unlocking is a privelidge not a right, just like driving a car.

      Dev team members just remember you do this for the greater good and the vast majority of us praise your chairitable efforts. Please do not let a small minority of selfish people discourage you. Always looking for the best in people I believe Joey just has a wicked sense of humor. I do.

      • joey

        unlocking is my r9ight and dev team is my slave, and you thor are my prison bitch , so shut the fuck up cock sucker, hey thor i wanna fuck your mother

  • panos

    hey i have an iphone 3g (3.1.2)
    i want to updated in latest firmware 4.2 coul i unlock this and jailbrake it after some minutes or i have to wait some days?please help me i am from Greece thanx

  • Matthew

    If u want the latest firmware and ios wait till Sunday . Thr unlock and jb should work. But its better to update to ios 4.0.1 and then use sn0wbreeze to create custom ipsw of ios 4.2.1 that way u can jb AND unlock today. Snowbreezw makes custom ipsw’s without updateing the bb and ios 4.0.1’s bb is unlockable now. Or like I said wait till Sunday.

    • joey

      wait till sunday, why you gonna go to church and pray for new firware , you moron, what a dick head you are couck sucker, mother fucjer

      • Matthew

        Who u talking to here?

    • Amjad

      Really? Can u do that? What sn0wbreezw version works with 4.2.1 on iPhone 3G…i was under the impression that it’s not possible yet….and what about the 4.2.1 checking the correct BB on statup thing that apple just applied??

  • Matthew

    CORRECTION, UNDER 28

  • akyamy

    Dev team is doing wonderful job. Thanks a zillion to Dev Team

    • joey

      YEAH AND I AM DOING WONDERFUUL JOB FUCKING YOUR SISTER AND MOTHER AT THE SAME TIME, THREESOME DUDE.

      • Matthew

        Wow! I’m an only child, and just remember sweetie, I do all the fucking around here. Now tell me again how much u want my c**k in ur shot out a*s. Little bottom bitch!

  • Amjad

    Hey, correct me if i am wrong.. BB 05.14.04 Is for 4.2.1 on iPhone 3G, right?? and the unlock coming this sunday is for 05.14.02?
    if u say unlock for 4.2.1 is coming, that would be misleading…

    • Matthew

      @Amjad, if I remember correctly the upcomming unlock is for ios 4.2.1 with the new bb. Since that one was expected to come out so soon that is y there was never an unlock for 4.1 it is a lot harder to unlock than it is to jb, and they didn’t want to waste an unlock. So the unlock is supposed to work on new ios and bb on iphone 3g(s). The jailbreak on the other hand is only untethered on 3g and older 3gs. Newer 3gs and 4 will b tethered, also NO UNLOCK, just yet for i4.

  • Adam

    Dude m also stuck with my iphone 4, 4.1 , isn’t there any way to get out of it.. i am ready to pay.. can anyone help if there is any unlocking software available in the market or somewhere?

    Please help me friends.. 🙁

    • Matthew

      Stuck where? What r u trying to do n what files/programs u using?

  • Adrian

    Matt, Oh no.. did u mean that i need to upgrade it again to 4.1? i cant unlock if im using 3.1.3??

    • Matthew

      @Adrien, no u can if u want, I believe. Since u did already upgrade to 4.1 before u updated ur bb so u need to wait for the new vwrsion of Ultrasn0w. But if u would like to u can keep ios 3.1.3 I was meerly saying that ur phone shouldn’t b slow on ios 4.1 depending on the other programs u have. Only thing tho, a lot of apps require a newer ios, so depending on what apps u hav/want iit might b better to update. But the choice is yours! Hope this helps.

  • Adam

    My iphone 4 4.1 02.10.04 is locked… is there any way to unlock it?

    • Lee

      Hey guys been waiting for a decade to fix my phone as my girlfriend updated it on me :@ just wondering will this new ultrasn0w unlock 5.14.02 baseband just becausebim screwed if not thanks

  • Jay

    Bro I been stuck on 4.1 forever now. I think I’m just going buy the new iPhone official). I’m do mad this unlock has took so long to release I feel like to break my iPhone out of frustration.
