  • NEW GUIDE: Virginize, upgrade, and unlock. From 1.0.2 to 1.1.1.
    All right, now that the virginizer is out, I have created a guide which will let you know how to get from an unlocked iPhone running 1.0.2 (NOT unlocked with IPSF) to an unlocked iPhone running 1.1.1.

    The first installment of the guide, How to Virginize your 1.0.2 iPhone (which is basically just downloading the baseband is all), is now finished. I have the screenshots done for the next 3 bits as well (upgrading to 1.1.1, preparing the 1.1.1 phone for modding/unlock, and unlocking 1.1.1), and will have the guides up tonight.

    Good clean fun.

    Thanks to jwdav, I added a step in the first part - restoring to a clean 1.0.2 before preparing to upgrade to 1.1.1. This should fix some folks issues.

      Revirginized and all went well. I then did the firmware restore to 1.02. I now have an unactivated, locked iphone. When I try to activate with iNdependence, it just hangs on "Waiting for jail break...". I have quit and retried several times with the same result. Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!

Everytime I run it, it says "Unlock Failed: Error in server communications" or something like that. Anybody here that uses IPSF ever had that?? And also..do I have to activate this first using independence or something?? This is fairly new stuff so not so much support is out yet..thanks.
      I get the exact same error from the iPhone sim free app.

      I jailbroke my iphone in 1.0.2 & I have app tapp. I am activated with AT&T (so unlocking isn't an issue). I want to upgrade to 1.1.1. I updated app tapp a few weeks ago and everything is working fine but I'd like the newer version 1.1.1 for iphone. Do I need to "virginize" before upgrading? (if so, how?)
      Also, I've got version 7.4.2.4 in itunes, should I make any changes there? Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

      Appears to be working fine: I unlocked it, used anySIM which said my phone was unlocked but the iPhone cannot connect to T-Mobile, saying 'no service'.

      The iPhone is on 1.1.1, Firmware 04.01.13_G, runs iTunes and YouTube, but no T-Mobile. How to resolve pls??

      Hey guys, I'm using the guide "Upgrading 1.0.2 iPhone to 1.1.1" to bring my previously unlocked SIM and jailbreaked 1.0.2 phone up to speed.

      So I've gotten all the way to the part where you do the pre 1.1.1 update, and succeeded. The big problem I'm having now is updating to 1.1.1, when iTunes only gives me the option to updgrade to 1.1.2

      What can I do??

      I'm including a link here to another forum, because this guy has the exact same question. He said he tried pulling in the 1.1.1 file from the "restore" function, but it doesn't seem to work.

      Can anyone help us out?

      Thank a million!

      when i get to the terminal step of part one(virginizing) the terminal window shows 'bash' at the top and not 'ssh', and does not show local host, instead just the user name, and when i type in ssh -1 your.iphone.ip.address, it doesnt work, i dont get the error message that you displayed as a possibility, instead i get a blank line succeeding the comand line, and shortly after "protocol major versions differ: 1 vs 2" . What do i do from here? im using leopard.

      - use installer on iPhone and uninstall Mobile Finder

      - Start Cyberduck and connect with iPhone

      - in Cyberduck, select View/show hidden files (or however this is called in the english version, mine is german)

      - just for safety, copy the folder MobileFinder from iPhone to your computer (find it in: /var/root/Library)

      - delete the folder MobileFinder from iPhone

      - again for safety reasons copy the file .profile (hidden, only visible when "show hidden files" is activated in Cyberduck) to your computer. You find this file in /var/root/

      - delete .profile from your iphone (it contains only one line, and this line creates the error: ". /var/root/Library/MobileFinder/.MobileFinderProfile"

      Done. Now you should be able to go further. Good luck
      Stefan
      I did it even simplier...
      I just looked into .MobileFinderProfile with 'less' and I saw clearly that it was giving rules to sync... so I was continuously getting that annoying error starting mobileterminal.

      therefore
      mv .MobileFinderProfile .MobileFinderProfileITSUXS

      and the problem is solved, no wrong sync anymore!
      if you wish, just rm .MobileFinderProfileITSUXS.

      BTW, on 1.1.4 .MobileFinderProfile is in /private/var/mobile/Library/MobileFinder

      hope it helps somebody
