The world is moving fast, so is the Jailbreak world is also making progress day by day. Whenever there is a new iOS released, the Jailbreak for that iOS is released after some time. The time duration can go to months and not years. It can take about 3-4 months for the jailbreak to arrive for a new iOS. If we talk about the Unlock, so it has been more than a year since we last saw the Unlock for iPhone 4 on baseband 1.59.00.

As per today, still there is no unlocking for the iPhone 4 on old and new basebands. In past the teams have shown many proofs and showed us some great hopes regarding unlock for iPhone 4 new basebands. Still now one has come up with an unlock other than GEVEY people. Till now there is no official unlock for the iPhone 4.

GEVEY is a SIM interposer that unlocks the iPhone 4 baseband by bypassing some hardware changes in the iPhone. After losing hope in the Dev-Team, GEVEY People showed a new hope with a working proof. Today those of who you are locked on iPhone 4 old basebands will be using GEVEY SIM for sure. Still you people require an official Unlock.

No official words have been said on the official unlock so far, but Apple have said the locked users “Bye-Bye” regarding the Unlock. Apple has patched the GEVEY SIM hole in iOS 5.0 with a new baseband 4.11.08, which made the phone, locked back once again and users cannot unlock it so far. That was a nice move by Apple to stop unlock.

Apple might be celebrating its success for the new baseband when we came across new news that people over GEVEY are working on the Unlock for the 4.11.08 baseband on iOS 5.0. They believe that the unlock will be ported in the next release of GEVEY SIM which will be GEVEY 2. If you are one of the unfortunate people who got their iPhone 4 on new baseband 4.11.08 or updated their iPhone on iOS 5.x.x and got the new baseband can wait a little more for the Unlock by GEVEY People.
