    Hi Everyone,

    I have an iPhone 4 with iOS 5 installed. More specifically, it's version 5.0 (9A334) with modem firmware 04.11.08.

    Is it possible for me to jailbreak and unlock this phone? If so, what's the best software to use?

    I found this article, but I'm not sure if this applies to my firmware/baseband.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, that the one. However, you must understand that it is tethered jailbreak only for OS5 for your phone.

    Great, thank you. Is there any ETA when an untethered jailbreak will be available?

    Ultrasn0w won't work on baseband that you have on your phone. However, there is way to unlock your phone by installing different baseband. This method will create problem with your phone GPS. So, do more research on it first before you go this route. Search for consequences with iPad baseband on iPhone.

    How'd it work? I'm going to buy an iphone 4 today and want to unlock it with T-mobile. I've had unlocked devices in the past, but I'm not 100% of the processes with the 4, and more specifically iOS5, yet.

    Unlock after tethered jailbreak

    i understand that jailbreaking iPhone 4 with os 5.0 using redsn0w is now tethered only. However, if if i unlock the phone after jailbreaking using ultrasn0w, will the phone still be tethered ?

    What about a factory unlocked iPhone 4?

    Does this guide work with a factory unlocked (bought unlocked from Apple in the UK) iPhone 4 allowing it to be both jailbroken and unlocked? Or will this brick my iPhone's current unlocked status

    I have the above mentioned 5.0 (9A334) and 04.11.08 version and firmware.

    I've tried looking on google, and usually prove to be fairly capable at finding what I need, but I couldn't find anything on my specific question...:(

    your factory unlocked so you don.t need to worry. You can't brick a iPhone. If you want to jailbreak that.s up to you bug you will remain unlocked no matter what.

    You can JB it on 5.0 but it will be a tethered JB at the moment.
