iOS 4.3 Beta will Upgrade Baseband to 04.08.00 – Stay Away

IphoneWiki moderator @Veeence tweeted this morning about iOS 4.3 that was released by Apple for Developers beta testing . Its not safe for iphone jailbreakers and especially unlockers to upgrade to iOS 4.3 . According to Veence the new iOS firmware will upgrade your current unlocked baseband to higher 04.08.00 [tweet pic below].

ATT users must have received a SMS from their provider encouraging them to upgrade to iOS 4.3 to get an important upgrade which we presume is the new HotSpot Feature . But if you are an unlocker just stay away from the trap .

We still don’t have an unlock for baseband 02.10.04 and 03.10.01 , and upgrading to latest baseband 04.08.00 will further aggravate the situation. Official warning from Iphone Dev Team below.
