iPhone 4 Unlock for ALL Basebands Announced!

*April Fool's Day Prank* FINALLY!!!!  In a surprise announcement, the iPhone Dev Team announced that they finally have a stable, working unlock for the iPhone 4 that is baseband independent.  This will also work on the iPhone 3GS. (Baseband 3.10.1 and up)

After months of unstable trials and failed attempts, they stumbled upon an unlock exploit that works regardless of baseband version or firmware version.

The Dev Team has released a unified unlock tool for all iPhone versions and until Apple patches the hole, it should work on future updates as well.  It takes advantage of a coding error in the Apple Activation Server, rather than the phone itself.  Although the actual process is being kept a secret, the basic idea is that the unlock acts as a proxy between the phone and the server.  The unlock gathers activation info from the server, then activates the phone.  And in an ironic coincidence, this also unlocks the App Store allowing authentic paid apps to be downloaded for free.  Similar to the Gevey SIM in the process, but no user intervention (other than clicking UNLOCK) is needed.

This is a completely untethered unlock.

Download the unlock tool here.

Please share this news with those who you think would appreciate it before the exploit is patched!

*Update, this was meant as an April Fool's Day prank (and it worked) Since it is no longer April 1, I added a warning at the beginning of the post*
