iOS 4.3 unlock working on iPhone 4 basebands 3.10.01 and 2.10.04?

iOS 4.3 is surely on the horizon. That leaves many unlockers wondering whether or not there will be an unlock ready. It's been a while but it appears a tweet from @sherif_hashim may be confirming that the issues have finally been worked out.

Don't go upgrading just yet though! MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team stated earlier that an iPhone 4 unlock solution would not be released until after iOS 4.3 goes public. This unlock would allow iPhone 4 users to unlock their phones on the newer basebands (3.10.01 and 2.10.04).

If all goes well and the unlock does perform as expected, we can probably expect a release a few weeks after iOS 4.3 is released to the public. Any of you unlockers stuck waiting for a solution so you can upgrade? Sound off in the comments!

Hope they release the unlock for 4.1 and 4.2.1 as soon as 4.3 goes public (since those unlocks are completely worked out), and THEN work on the 4.3 unlock :)

HSaturn says:

I think they released the unlock for 4.2.1 not sure though

Austin says:

I think u can downgrade from the later baseband. I can't wait till this cones out. I've been stuck on 4.1 just waiting for an unlock

Chris Parsons says:

I'm stuck on 3.10.01 so please, bring it on.

Ethan says:

So annoying. I've been waiting forever for the unlock. I am going to London next week and need it to tether my laptop. Really annoying!

BBCurve9300 says:

Try making an unlock for yourself, now that's annoying

Josh says:

I've got a related question I'd love answered... What is the actual difference between an AT&T iPhone and those abroad that are already unlocked. Is there a hardware reason the AT&T phone can't simply be changed into an unlocked 'international' version?

Allyson Kazmucha says:

Primary difference: international carriers are cool with the unlock.
AT&T = stick up you know where when it comes to unlocking :p

Ethan says:

@Josh: Nothing, other than it's locked to AT&T.
And I tried calling AT&T to get my phone unlocked. They weren't having that, either. Won't give me the SIM Unlock code. They would on any other phone. LAME. They wanted $200 for 200 mb international roaming.

Larry says:

How much was the Dev Team and Geohot paid for not releasing the Unlock?

sherlock says:

That's cold. I very much doubt it... it's my impression they do it as a hobby and a public service?

rotkiv3451 says:

I'm really getting annoyed by this unlock that takes forever to come out. I'm waiting since october!!!!!!!!!!!!

djrezerekt says:

I'm waiting so impatiently for this unlock to come out! I'm stuck at 3.10.01 and cant wait for this unlock! I think they havent released it yet because by the time they found the exploit....the 4.3 was seeded to developers and they figured they would stay one step ahead this time and not give apple a chance t5o close the hole thats being exploited. Both musclenerd and Sherif have stated (even if indirectly) that the unlock WILL be released only after 4.3 is released (3/11 for you guys who dont know) I have no reason to believe that after all the basebands theyve crashed for us to have an unlock .....that they would not do it yet again....on the most important iphone to date!

me says:

wth man.. sherif and oher ppl are apple paid hackers.. they dont want to release unlock.. stupid whores... cant crack a baseband after 7 months
