Unlock iPhone 4 iOS 4.1 After Limera1n Jailbreak
Now that Limera1n jailbreak works for all iOS devices, including iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod Touch 4G, 3G, and iPad 3.2.2, you can go ahead and jailbreak your iPhone 4 using this untethered boot level jailbreak. Since Limera1n requires your iPhone 4 to be on iOS 4.1, which will obviously result in a baseband upgrade, you need to follow the instructions given below (only for iPhone 4) to preserve your unlock while jailbreaking.
iOS 4.1 Baseband Update Warning
For those of you who have not yet updated to iOS 4.1, let us tell you upfront that this firmware update will also update your baseband to 2.10.04 is not yet supported by Ultrasn0w 1.1-1. Which means that if you were to update to iOS 4.1 directly via iTunes, then you would lose your carrier unlock, possibly forever.
This is why we have put together a small guide on how to update to iOS 4.1 preserving unlock baseband 1.59.00.
Or you could wait for PwnageTool to bring in the Limera1n exploit, so that you can jailbreak iPhone 3GS without baseband update.
Jailbreak iPhone 4
Geohot, the iPhone hacker who earlier gave us blackra1n has come up with a boot level exploit which is untethered (thanks to another hacker Comex). This one is different from the SHAtter exploit that was initially set to release as GreenPois0n jailbreak for 4G devices.
With Limera1n’s release, GreenPois0n got delayed, and SHAtter exploit is reserved for future jailbreaks.
