iPhone 4S Unlock Update: Baseband Bootrom Dumped Successfully

by on December 1, 2011

Last night MuscleNerd, one of the key members of The iPhone Dev Team (the developers behind most of the public Jailbreak utilities and software unlocks), tweeted out a picture (embedded above) that suggests they’re close to completing the first software unlock for the iPhone 4S.

Prior to tweeting out the picture above, MuscleNerd said the following:

iPhone4S baseband bootrom now dumped :)

Essentially this means that they’re wrapping up the creation of the unlock – however, there’s no current ETA. Additionally, because this will be a software unlock, the device (in this case an iPhone 4S) would have to be Jailbroken prior to unlocking it. And that’s good news for Jailbreakers if The iPhone Dev Team is planning on releasing an unlock in the near future.

Just remember to stay tuned for more updates on the status of the iPhone 4S unlock, as well as updates for the status of the 5.x untethered Jailbreak!

    I’m saddened by the fact that they have totally forgotten and skipped unlocking the BB for my iP4. :(

      They’re not able to unlock the BB for your iPhone… They’ve tried unlocking it since the 2.10 baseband came. That’s almost a year.¬†
      The i4s has been here for what? 2 months? And they might have found a exploitable bug. Think before complaining… They are doing the best they can, and it is up to you whether or not to buy a locked phone in the first place.

       jailbreak= hacking it to do anything like themes tweaks
       unlocking= using the iphone on unoffical carriers like T-Mobile
