As we reported earlier Gevey team has come up with a clever way to unlock the iPhone 4 if you have one of the supported basebands on iOS. Basically, it works by forcing the activation of the baseband using the emergency dialer,in iOS. But we were not sure that it still works for anything beyond iOS 4.x. But now it seems to work for iPhone 4 on iOS 5 as well to unlock!
As we stated earlier there are questions about the legality of such an unlocking mechanism. For this reason we cannot recommend this method to unlock iPhone 4. Unless you are really feeling impatient and can’t wait for a better software solution to the iPhone 4 unlock such as a software based unlocking solution like ultrasn0w from iPhone Dev Team at some later time.
You might also be interested to know that a tethered jailbreak solution for the iOS 5 on almost all compatible iOS device has been achieved, and even better RedSn0w updated version has been released to jailbreak your own device. You can follow our guide Jailbreak iOS 5 On iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad & iPod Touch Using Redsn0w 0.9.8 for that!
