iPhone 4 Jailbreak/Unlock for iOS 4 Might Take Some Time

Over the past couple of days lot of things happened. Apple released and within a few hours an unlock for baseband 04.26.08 thru 05.13.04 was released, and within few more hours several jailbreaks were released.


However, if you are someone buying an and looking for a jailbreak or unlock, don’t expect it to come out soon. The jailbreaks available right now are limited to the 3G and iPod Touch 2G. However, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G running iOS 4 have yet to be jailbroken yet.

Considering how easy it was to create an unlock and jailbreak for the older devices, the newer devices should have been jailbroken by now too. However, they have not, and considering the number of updates in the past day, Apple has made it really hard for the iPhone Dev team and other folks working on jailbreaks and unlocks.

Earlier too, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G users had to wait a while before the Spirit jailbreak was made available, and this time will be no different. iPhone 4, which have already begun shipping and will also be available at Best Buy and Walmart starting tomorrow will most likely not see any jailbreaks or unlocks for a few days or weeks for that matter.

So, if you are anticipating a jailbreak and unlock for iPhone 4, you might have to wait a few days, or maybe few weeks before you can use the features Apple does not want you to. What about you, how long do you think before a jailbreak and unlock for the iPhone will become available to users?
