    Here's a welcome chunk of positive news to start the week.

    Jailbreakers get ready. MuscleNerd says his solution to iPhone 4 unlock is almost complete. Early today on Twitter, MuscleNerd tweeted the following: "@davidamodt It means the "next step" demoed in Twitter / MuscleNerd: Next step is to keep the t ... has been reached, so now there's just 1 final step " The next step alluded to dates back to July 6: “Next step is to keep the task backgrounded like we did for 3G/3GS … Backgrounded task is the unlock.”

    As the likes of MuscleNerd and GeoHot continue working toward the final phase of the iPhone 4 jailbreak, the biggest question isn't if the jailbreak will be released but when. Unfortunately, it isn't yet clear if Apple will release its promised update before or after the jailbreak is made public. While a case could be made for either a pre or post jailbreak release of iOS 4.0.1, it doesn't necessarily appear at the moment that Apple and the modding community are still plotting their respective releases in conjunction with one another.

    At this point, at least from Apple's perspective, it doesn't seem logical to delay the release of iOS 4.0.1 in hopes of preemptively patching any jailbreaking exploits. As the critics of iPhone 4's "death grip" mount (including a withdrawal of support from Consumer Reports), for once it seems that the jailbreaking community may not be on the most immediate radar of concerns for Cupertino. Indeed, these days Apple has much bigger problems than unlocked handsets.
