STATUS - What is going on? - read here first before posting! (includes rules)
In this thread we will report you recent changes in the development.
The below indicator will be updated regulary as soon as I can, please note that I am quite busy with keep the things around here and at IRC together + spending time to development, so it may lagg a bit behind the infos on the wiki. For more information you can see the wiki at http://iphone.fiveforty.net/wiki/ which contain all currently gathered and free-ed information about the iPhone!
The update cycle is just slower because recent thing are based on reversing the phone firmware which is much slower done than the things just bassed on configuration or similiar.
If you ever sit in front of IDA for 8 hours to follow a prorgam flow and do analysis you proberly know what I mean. ;)
Also please note that we NOT stuck ourself completly with the 3rd party code, it's just a needed requirement to get proper working user interface to the phone which we needed to get much easier testing facilities and possibilities to interact with the phone directly whitoout needing to hexedit together arm code injected into a bianry or such, which really cost time. Along the dev team unlock, the last missing step has absolute priority. We are very international and you may belive me there are more than one person along the dev team who are also more than intrested to see the phone unlocked and be able to finally use it.
Here again, something i wrote on this topic earlier...
well, the unlock will be done once someone had the right idea to solve the problem. lets see what comes with the weekend. noone can promise fast sucess but we do our best.
its worked many many hours each day to archive the goal, 24/7 for real. but as it is with such things, time spirit and ideas are the key, and its hard to give a eta on such things.
please belive me we do our best. I think we do good atm ( see toolchain, new tools and research results etc.) but all we can tell is it will be done once its done.
all research is open and it will be public as soon we found the missing bit but in the meantime all you can do is wait for the day white smoke rises and its done.
for anyone who wants to supports actively, feel free to join IRC and work with us at a solution or send a donation for the team so maybe the basicneeds could be covered. thanks
Please keep in mind that all people in thsi development are doing this for free as their hobby. If anything new exciting is found it will be reported instantly on the wiki.
But please let us the time to work.
If someone is willing to help with reversing ARM code we welcome you also very much on IRC. :)

Offers like http://iphoneunlocking.com or other similar things are fake. Don't get yourself fooled and honestly I wouldn't give my IMEI or eMail to anyone who asks.
Please don't post threads like "is it unlocked yet?". Threads like this will be closed or removed to keep an eye on the important things. Thank you :)
Q: When will the phone be unlocked?
A: I suspect a first solution within the next week, but it can also take a day or two weeks. It's not like developing a Tetrs game, it's really hard work and tires a lot of us.
Q: How will unlock work?
A: We not know yet, we prefer to find a software solution.
Q: Is unlock the only goal?
A: No we started with other intends like bringing the phone i.e. 3rd party possibilites as well, unlocking is a welcome side effect for many of you and a needed point for us as well.
Q: AT&T unlock codes?
A: Is personal and checks token from the apple webserver if really exist.
A: Does not work with a Jon activated phone.
Q: How can I support this project?
A: Read the doantion thread, any help is welcome as we are not advertisment financed. We can use any doantions. All theserver for forum, irc and wiki cost a lot. Thanks for anyone who supported us so far.
