Well, it looks like there's always hopes!
After almost everyone knew that there's no iPhone 4 unlock in the coming days and it may take more months, MuscleNerd of the iPhone Dev Team is telling us about a new exploit (NCK) which was discovered few hours ago and expected to permanently unlock the iPhone 4 basebands.
