Right after the release of iPhone 4S in the public, we found out that a little bug in iOS version let the users to temporarily unlock the iPhone 4S on the firmware for few minutes, and after the public claim, we got words from the popular iPhone DevTeam that they have also found out a method to bring unlock for the iPhone 4S and soon they will launch the unlock in Ultrasn0w for iPhone 4S after the launch of iOS 5.x.x untethered jailbreak.
As we now, at the moment both jailbreaking teams have released the first part of the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak in the public and now working to finalize the A5 untethered jailbreak on iOS 5.0.1 for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. The iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak exploit was discovered by Pod2g, and now is the main member of its new iPhone hacker team called “Dream Team”. However, after a couple of weeks, we come to know that MuscleNerd the key member of the iPhone Dev Team has told one of the market publications that the hacker is going to launch the iPhone 4S unlock soon in the market on iOS 5.0.
The hacker has told the publication that jailbreak hackers are currently working to launch the iOS 5.0 untethered jailbreak right after the iOS 5.0.1 Untethered jailbreak for iPad 2 and iPhone 4S. MuscleNerd has told iClarified that there is a good possibility of the iPhone 4S unlock launch for the users who are still running iOS 5.0 on their devices, and indirectly the team warns you to stay on iOS 5.0, if you want to get to unlock for your new iPhone 4S device.
The news mentions the reference of the MuscleNerd that he claimed that an untethered jailbreak for iPhone 4S running on iOS 5.0 will come up right after the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak for the A5 devices. So, according to the new details shared by the iPhone Dev Team, you have to stick on the oldest iOS version on iPhone 4S, if you want to unlock for your device. On this news, we recommend you to downgrade your device to iOS 5.0 for baseband downgrade, because it is not too late to downgrade your device to iOS 5.0. Apple has not stopped signing the bolbs signature for the iOS 5.0.
iPhone 4S users who are seeking for an unlock on their handset is recommended by developer teams to downgrade their baseband build number 9A406 to 9A405, as the unlocking exploit is mostly likely to be found for the earlier builds.
However, we have not heard any direct claim from the MuscleNerd on this claiming statement to the iClaried, and the iPhone 4S unlock launch is not guaranteed, the iOS hacker MuscleNerd, last November announced on his Twitter that a very promising unlock for iPhone 4S in the works.
