    They simply follow the path of least resistance in order to get 1.1.3 and later baseband unlocked.

    That is a very natural way of doing things, actually...

It made much sense to me as soon as the dev team released (in a quick and timely manner) a jailbreak for 1.1.3 phones. I sensed that with the SDK coming out soon, there will be a mad rush for 3rd party app developers (YES that includes members of the DEV TEAM) to start selling their stuff. Think how much more these guys can make selling 3rd party apps compared to splitting the bounty donations from people wanting a software unlock. It makes absolute sense for them. Unfortunately we've been sold out.

    From hobbyists who merely took the pleasure of hacking the iphone, they've become entrepreneurs. Maybe they also have some arrangement with Apple that they will allow jailbreaking but discourage these developers to come up with an unlock. And in return Apple will carry their 3rd party apps in itunes for people to buy. Compute, compute! Kaching, kaching!

    Again from hobbyists, these guys are now motivated by money. Ever wonder why Nate True tried to go out of his way to release the jailbreak much earlier than the dev team with which he was part of? From a united group of people their eyes are now flashing the green buck. And even if it meant betraying their original mission and betraying one another, they will go after this thing in the hope of grabbing a piece of that pie.

    In the end we all lose. I wish I could request to take back my donation. But then again just consider it as a loss.


    I must agree to this. It sounds the most possible explanation of all the silence to me. I would probably do it the same way

    why don't we tag this forum as "jailbreaking" or "sim information"?? unlocking sounds a bit big for it!

    In the end, you have been sold out (those who donated and those who bought 1.1.2 phones waiting for an unlock). Sorry to those people, but it's over and we should all move on. Buy a *sim, a new phone, an ipod touch or whatever, unlock is a thing of the past.....

    You make a very interesting point yalag

    Only time will tell

    One flaw in this argument: sales of *sim would rise more if the devs made a statement saying they had lost hope and were never going to unlock it. So if they have sold out to the sim makers, and are all liers anyway (that is, about 25 of them), why pretend to be working on it? They could make more by telling us to forget about the unlock and get a sim!

    I was trying to think of something to counteract yalag comment.. you just put foward another good point.

    I suppose the only comeback could be to say that, saying nothing keeps the unlock donations coming in as well

    I'm a hardened Dev Team supporter so I really hope yalag is wrong about this one

    Stop talking BS about Dev Team. This 4.6BL is a hard one and the impatient mass flagellates them instead of supporting them.

    If I were in the teams I would've lost heart already, not because its difficulty (which always motivates those of us with a curious intellect), but for the low support you guys give.

    So what if they don't publish their advances, let them work on what they enjoy, and get free benefit from that.

    Period!!!
