Verizon iPhone Hacked to Work in China

You technically can’t use a CDMA iPhone in China but according to this WSJ article, a few China Telecom employees managed to get the Verizon iPhone to make its first call from China.

The group of hackers that call themselves the Apple Lab Team posted this image of a Verizon iPhone on a Twitter-like site in China, commenting that the “CDMA iPhone 4 has made its first call in China”…

“Guangdong Telecom’s first iPhone 4 has been successfully jailbroken,” one post said. The “Window’s version of Greenpois0n didn’t work,” it said, referring to software used to hack Apple’s operating systems. “A switch to the Mac version of Greenpois0n was a success.”

No other information about the process was shared. Unless this is just a fake attempt at getting free publicity, this little hack might get around, so stay tuned.
