My suggestions that there wouldn't be any s/w unlock until Apple understand that profits goes down seems to be not pointless (no firmware update, no mysterious update from mysterious 'dev team'). After all, I asking all community:
"Maybe it's time to moves our iPhones to linux? And start working on alternate firmware?"
It's clear that new firmware made by our hands would solve problem of sim-lock, but at least we would have free framework and place for thoughts!? So what linux guru says? (todays iPhone OS based on linux/bsd kernel i believe and one of the most biggest problems would be drivers for gsm modem, bluetooth adapter, multitouch panel, wi-fi adapter)
So point is:
does any one wants to starts porting Linux or Android for iPhone?
I got skills of programmer, so can help with software writing, but no skills with linux porting.
I just hate to wait when Apples goes down to end-user and give ability to use its gadget.
