The unlocking of the iPhone with UltraSn0w leads to serious security issue in the iPhone 4.2 as well as 4.2.1. In the iPhone 4.2 and 4.2.1, regular push notifications were being sent to the user. Wifi was used to send the push notifications to user. It was not sent just like only once a day. The notification was send continuosly. The Wifi, when active consumes a lot of battery drain. So does the GPS and the GPRS when active. This leads to a lot of the battery drain. Not only did it lead to the battery drain, it also led to the quick battery heat and discharge.
The only way to solve the problem is by using the proper procedure, so that the notification is no more continuously sent using the wifi. The first step is to deactivate the hactivation and then activate the SAM((Subscriber Artificial Module). This jailbreaks the iPhone is a proper order and ensures that no more notification is sent.
