iPhone 4 to be Permanently Unlocked by Next weekend?

iPhone 4 to be Permanently Unlocked by Next weekend !!!

Well every one of us are eagerly waiting for unlock for their iPhones 02.10.04 , 3.10.01 or 4.10.01 BaseBand. 
Here is the good news :) The one of the best iPhone Hacker from the Team Dev Blog "MuscleNerd" announced that there is permanent solution for unlocking your favorite phone iPhone :D

So we need to wait till next weekend :D to see MuscleNerd's tools :) hope he releases sooner cant wait for a week

What is this NCK-key cracking? How does it work?

The NCK-key is generated by Apple if you’d like to unlock you iPhone officially. This “NCK-unlock” method was initially developed by Geohot  while working on iPhone 2G unlock that could “crack” these 15 digits long unique key easily. Geohot’s NCKBF program could do around 100,000 keys/second.

Now, with this exploit in hand, iOS hackers can’t unlock your baseband, but they can capture more information from the baseband to speed up this cracking process. Since the NORID and CHIPID (unique for every device) are known, you’d apparently only have to check 40 more bits (5 digits). A 40 bits key is theoretically crackable on “home hardware” within a week (24/7). The downside of this approach is that you’ll have to keep your computer turned on, and your iPhone has to be connected. And that is the reason why they never tried it before.

Here, “by Next weekend” does not necessarily mean that you will get iPhone 4 unlock by next weekend. It would just be a confirmation, whether the exploit, they are working on, can be used to unlock iPhone 4 permanently or not. If they are able to crack this 40-bit unique NCK key of the device, there are high chances that your iPhone 4 would be unlocked permanently.

This new exploit comes as a savior for iPhone Dev Team, after failing to deliver promised unlock for iPhone4. As always, we will update you about every bit of information
