Five down, one to go



The amazing guys at the iPhone Dev Wiki are working on the final and hardest task they set themselves five weeks ago: unlocking the iPhone. The unlocking task was originally in the middle of the list of tasks planned, but as unlocking was harder than originally thought it has slipped to the end of the list.

With running 3rd party applications done (way to go!)  only Unlock Iphone remains.

Progress is is being made on unlocking the basband radio as the Baseband unlocking ideas page indicates. Ideas such as Dumping nvram, IMSI check trapping, Locating cyrptographic functions, Modifying onchip root certificate store, and SIM Proxies are all being explored.

I really think that we are getting closer now. Anyone ready to guess how long before a end-user-friendly unlocking solution is released?
