iPhone 4 iOS 4.1: Unlock & Jailbreak iPhone 4, 3GS with New Hardware Exploit

San Diego, CA, October 5, 2010 — The latest jailbreak for iOS 4.1 has won great fanfare providing unlocks for iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4. iPhone hackers UnlockiPhone4.biz brought a wonderful exploit capable of jailbreaking Apple’s coveted gadgets. Users will get great options as UnlockiPhone4.biz have developed a full unlock method out of this exploit.

UnlockiPhone4.biz claims the new tool to unlock iPhone 4, 3GS & 3g on baseband 05.14.02 will hit devices running iOS 4.1 software. The jailbreak works by simply crashing the device when inputting a certain command to the baseband.

The hackers have been updating jailbreaks for iOS 4.1 since the celebrated operating system was unveiled by Steve Jobs in Apple media event on Sept. 8. Apple has been working to block hackers putting them under legal suit. But, tech giant was completely flattened when U.S. Copyright Office and Library of Congress judged that jailbreaking did not violate the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

While Apple claimed fix for 24 security issues iPhone hacker, pod2g of Chronic Dev Team found a boot ROM based exploit and exposed iOS4.1’s vulnerability. The iOS 4.1 was celebrated as it will fix numerous bugs like iPhone’s proximity sensor and will improve Bluetooth connections. But, hackers have nullified Apple restrictions by exploiting holes in iPhones and iPod Touch.

Very interestingly iPhone Dev-Team has claimed that Apple couldn’t prevent jailbrreaking without making significant hardware changes because the exploit targets such a low-level part of the operating system.

Earlier the same hacker had found the 24kpwn exploit which enabled users to jailbreak their iPhone/iPod Touch. Meanwhile, very surprisingly Apple has relaxed the restrictions on developers and opened the water tight compartments of its popular gadgets for users.
