Jailbreak your iPhone

Unlock iPhone 4 iOS 4.1 With Ultrasn0w


As you know GeoHot released Limera1n jailbreak for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 3G and 4G and Greenpois0n is on hold for a while. Limera1n jailbreak requires you to install iOS 4.1 first and then apply the limera1n jailbreak as instructed here. Direct update to stock firmware is equal to updated baseband. Last month we published a Guide to Update iPhone 4 to iOS 4.1 While Preserving Baseband 1.59.00. Doing this way you can update to iOS with old baseband (iPhone 4 Only).

So first update to iOS 4.1 while preserving your baseband (instructions here) then jailbreak with limera1n (instructions here) and then follow the following instructions to unlock your iPhone 4 iOS 4.1 baseband  with Ultrasn0w.

    Why are you killing your self to unlock 4.1 ? take your Iphone 4 with 4.1 firmware to the Apple store and tell them phone have weak signal,and dropping calls etc.. and tell them you wanna try another phone , then they will give you Iphone 4 with 4.0.2 firmware then you can unlock for another sim, i did this to 6 Iphone 4 now and it’s works 😉 there is nothing new future in 4.1 if you don’t care the Apps store
