iPhone 4 jailbroken and unlocked. For real.
It’s the one event that even people who are holding it the wrong way are looking forward to.
Yes, the (in)famous jailbreak of a new Apple iPhone. A magical moment for the many people who are into this kind of thing.
It has arrived.
For the iPhone 4.
Now, over the past few days, George Hotz (better known as Geohot, the guy who first jailbroke the original iPhone) has claimed to have jailbroken the iPhone 4, but also said he may not release the procedure. He then decided to quit doing stuff like this altogether.
A sad moment, that.
But fret not, as the even better-nicknamed MuscleNerd and planetbeing are up to the task, and making everyone miss Geohot just a little bit less.
Yep, that’s Cydia running on an iPhone 4. Cydia is an alternative app market that’s only available after jailbreaking (but you knew that already, I hope).
Not only is the iPhone 4 now jailbroken, it has also been unlocked. Meaning you can run it on any (GSM) network you please, regardless of which network it used to ‘belong’ to.
And now for the bad news.
There’s still no guide to follow in order to get your precious phone unlocked and jailbroken.
But hang tight.
It will come.
