iOS4 was released to public earlier today and we shared some screenshots and tips on how to use folders with iOS4 along with multitasking with iOS4.
Along with that, the dev team also announced the Ultrasn0w unlock for baseband between 04.26.08 thru 05.13.04, however, the redsn0w tool to jailbreak iPhone has not yet been updated.
This means that there is no way to jailbreak the iPhone as of now, and of course because of that you cannot unlock your iPhone too. However, the good news is that the iPhone dev team posted an update that jailbreaking tool for the iPhone was being updated and will be released shortly.
Remember that the redsn0w jailbreak did work on the iOS4 GM, so it should not be long before it will also work for the official iOS4 release.
So if you have not yet updated to iOS4, you better hold on till a jailbreak update is available, because if you do and rely on a carrier unlock, you will not be able to use your device.
Have fun, we will keep you updated when the iOS4 jailbreak is out for users to download.

The cooks at XDA have released a new HTC Desire ROM for the Acer Liquid phone. For Froyo, only Donut radio is supported as of now.
However, the ROM is too buggy right now and only supports few features including Touchscreen, buttons, GSM calls, 3D, 2D, sound. The ROM does not support mobile data connection and SD card.
With the bugs and limited support this ROM is only useful if you are looking to test things out, other than that just leave it aside.
More info and ROM download at XDA.
Looks like HTC is turning to become another Apple. Following in their footsteps, HTC is threatening legal action against cooks/rooters who distribute ROMs.
Distributing ROMs is nothing new and has been happening for quite sometime now, however, the problem does not lie with the users who distribute it, the problem lies with the device manufacturers themselves who delay releasing those ROMs to general public for months at times.
No doubt that HTC is coming up with a Android 2.2 Froyo update in the next two weeks, but would users wait? It would be interesting to see how HTC goes after these users, since it is highly impossible that they would get hold of them, and yes of course, if you curb free speech you get underground.

Redsn0w the popular tool for jailbreaking iPhone has been updated to beta 4 to support the latest iPhone OS 4.0 beta 4. iPhone OS 4.0 beta 4 was released by Apple last week, and the developer team has already been able to jailbreak the iPhone OS 4.
The latest version of Redsn0w is targeted at developers of jailbroken apps who are trying to get their apps working on the iPhone OS 4.0 platform. If you are someone who is not a developer you should stay away from this app for now.
This is a beta release of redsn0w targeted at developers of jailbroken apps. It uses the same pwnage2 DFU-mode exploit that we’ve been using since the 2.x days. Nothing new is revealed to Apple, and it’s not applicable to the iPad. Don’t go near it if you use yellowsn0w, ultrasn0w, or blacksn0w.
Redsn0w 0.9.5b4 only supports iPhone 3G for now, users will also have to use MAC OS X for the jailbreaking. Please do not use this tool if you do not have the iPhone OS 4.0 beta1/beta4 installed on your device.

Android 2.2 Froyo had been officially made available for the Nexus One along with an option where users could download and install the manual update on the Nexus One. However, if you are not that tech savvy you can easily root Android 2.2 Froyo on the Nexus One using a tool called Quick Rooter.
According to an XDA forum member, Quick Rooter does not install a full ROM, however, it should be used to flash an existing installation.
Just a quickie to enable root access on the new FroYo OTA.. This is *not* a full ROM, but meant to be flashed over an existing stock installation. This is just something I threw together for myself until Google releases the source to AOSP and CM6 can get underway.
If you are eager to root your Nexus One and get Android 2.2 Froyo on your device, visit this page on the XDA forum to find the necessary downloads to flash your device.
