so a friend of mine came to me asking me to unlock and jailbreak his iphone 3G. Well the jailbreak of course was quite simple. Worse case scenario? He updated his iphone to the new iOS 4.1 which also updates the baseband to 5.14.02. I dont know if it updates the bootloader too but his is at 5.9 and if it was at 5.8 I hear that somethign could be done to unlock this fucker. So for the last 2 days or going into two days I have been trying to figure this shit out. The only thing about the “bright” side is that I have all these fucking icrap programs to unlock other phones in the future lol.
So i read that Apple has not released iOS 4.2 and it wont be for another 10 days or so from now. Its safe to say that POSSIBLY it might come out by Turkey Day. Thats Thanksgiving for those that are not keen on our American holiday Thanksgiving. So after all the bullshit, slamming my fist on my desk countless times and …..well you know getting pissy. I just decided the best thing to do at this point is to just put the thing aside, give it back to him and keep an eye out for the new iOS 4.2 because the hacks will be released around the same time. THEN i can unlock his unruly phone. lol. I charged him $25 bucks to do it. Honestly it doesnt bug me to spend all the time trying because through all the trial and error and shit, it might pay off later to unlock more of STeve Jobs contraptions for fanatics. lol.
So in the end, its a waiting game. So if your an Apple icrap lover which I am NOT, then I will have to wait to get his phone cracked just like the rest of you. Ive gone through all the BS. Downgraded the phone to a custom 3.1.2 IPSW firmware, tried the redsn0w shit, welll you get the picture. So instead of getting a coronary over this phone ill stick with playing with my phone while my friend Thomas gets pissy because he will have to wait to use his used iphone 3G on T-Mobile and I get to enjoy my awesome HD2. lol
So if your an iphone user that really really really really really really really needs these hacks, i suggest you wait it out and stop whinning over it. The more you whine the longer you will wait. Apparently, Apple has held up the release of it because of a wi-fi bug for the ipad and I guess because of that they are holding back all the updates until its fixed. I personally think Steve Jobs likes making his worshippers wait. Go ahead Steve, im not one of your worshippers! lol
