image As you know the big news was iPhone SIM Free finally unveiling their commercial unlocking Software to the world although it is plagued with problems that not only affect iPhone users but the company itself, hackers have taken aim and set their sights on the unlock solution.

The unlocking method has been sold to retailers in bulk orders and generally go for $50. Keep in mind that this solution is not a guaranteed method and any support is not offered by retailers or iPhone SIM Free.

However it is shady business, should a firmware update re-lock your iPhone or should the unlock go awry, you will be charged for an addition license.

“In the event Apple comes out with a new firmware upgrade which will lock your phone again you hereby agree that Wireless Imports nor its vendor will be held liable or responsible for unlocking your handset again,If your handset becomes locked you will be charged to unlock it again.”

Fortunately hackers have created a free version of the unlock to deter any profits and provide an easy to use yet flexible solution. There are two Apps, ieraser which is a script based unlock and iUnlock which according to Engadget is a better bet since it’s more concrete than ieraser.

If you have attempted these hacks yourself, let us know!
