  • 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.

      What should i do?

      Yep - I'm in the same boat. Can't click on the pre 1.1.1 upgrade button in INdependence. Anyone?

      ** FIXED: just re-start OpenSSH on the iPhone. Then re-start INdepenednece, and the button becomes active.

      Will this guide work with Windows Based PC? Is the Virginizer for Windows?

      Poetic - in " Unlocking the 1.1.1 iPhone anySIM" you tell people to ssh into the phone with the pass "dottie"
      is this right? I'm sure the 1.1.1 pass is "Alpine"

      SUCCESS!

      I am now using an unlocked iPhone with T-Mobile.

      My only last question would be... has anyone figured out the "carrier services" setting within the phone settings page? That was the only thing that didn't carry over for me. I used cyberduck to look at the new files that had replaced the previously modified files, to see if i could update them and they are way different from 1.0.2.

      Has anyone figured that out?

      theliksta,

      I deleted the anysim app via Independence. It didn't seem to make any difference, besides making for a cleaner looking springboard.

      Followed the guide to the letter. Unlocked and all was running well for 2 hours.
      Made and received calls intalled apps etc.
      Then I received a SMS, I tried a couple of times to open it but kept returning to the home screen.
      I attempted to restart the iphone and ended up with a brick??
      In the process of restoring to 1.0.2 (hopefully) not sure if I'll attempt to upgrade again.
      Anyone experience something similar?

      ok solved my issue.

      reloaded the .plist (launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist)

      rebooted the phone got my operator logo back.

      ran through the process again with this time doing

      launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist


      everything went smoothly

      Please can someone help! I followed the virginizer and anysim etc, and succesfully upgraded my phone to 1.1.1,working fine.Then out of the blue while connected to itunes,a message telling me the phone needed to be restored.i did this and now i have the itunes screen with the at&t logo saying the sim card in this iphone doe snot appear to be a supported sim card,and on my iphone screen it says activate iphone.

      I only upgraded from 1.0.2 because poetic folly is trustworthy and put up the guides which said worked fine and did for 1 hour,but now when i open independence 1.2.5,and try to activate or jailbreak,the message "error,you need to downgrade to version 1.0.2 the special upgread to 1.1.1" Im really unhappy with this as ive put time and faith into the guides on here and now i have a brick that i have no idea what to do next with.
      could someone please help me,and not ignore this?

      I am due to go on a business trip in 3 hours and need my phone.

      @ theliksta

      The restore wiped out the jailbreak and fake-activation. As independence says, you need to downgrade, set up the symlink (the pre-upgrade step) and re-up to 1.1.1. Sorry, not pretty, but should work if you still have the time.

      The only other way is to follow one of the other jailbreak guides that use the TIFF bug to do it all on 1.1.1. I know there are Intel Mac and Windows apps that will do this for you.

      Installer.app is included in the viriginizing pack. Simply install it using iNdependence like you install anySIM, and then start it up to update it. I've updated the unlock portion of the guide to reflect this.

      You most likely didn't have OpenSSH installed yet. To do so you need to click the Install SSH/SFTP/SCP button in iNdependence. If you have previously installed any SSH solutions, you will most likely also have to reinstall the BSD Subsytem in Installer.app.

      You have tried to install multiple versions of OpenSSH. Install SSH using the iNdependence method, and then reinstall the BSD Subsystem using Installer.app (navigate to the Uninstall tab in Installer.app, click BSD Subsystem, and click "Re-install").

After a few minutes it gave me an error (cant remember the error number) that said cannot update. So after that it gave me the message about seeing the iphone in recovery mode. So after getting nervous as to what would happen, I just recovered back to the 1.0.2. firmware. So i went through all the steps to jailbreak and unlock and now Im back with unlocked 1.0.2. So i tried again to do this new guide and now im getting stuck at the backup seczone part, where i type "./norz seczone.backup 0x3FA000 0x2000" into terminal. It just hangs at "waiting for data..." So after I let that hang there for about 15 minutes...i just canceled out of everything. So now I have the unlocked 1.0.2. phone and everything seems to be ok...but now how should I get to 1.1.1. if it hangs at "waiting for data..." Thanks.
      Sounds like you aren't typing the bit about launchctl unloading the CommCenter. Restart the phone, and make sure you are typing that.

      I never close SSH, and get at least 2 days with average use.

      Yes, 1.1.1 was a major upgrade, and that 30 MB is all firmware files.

      Is it possible for me to use your virginize-guide, or are there any known problems with unlock.app??
      No issues at all. The only unlocked iPhones this will not work with are ones unlocked through IPSF, the for-pay solution.

      Try manually deleting that file, and going at it again.

      You're good, go ahead. The IPSF method is the "iPhone SimFree" method, and is a for-pay unlock solution.

      Follow the instructions in iNdependence then to repeat the process. I am unsure why this would happen, mine has been connected to iTunes many times, and I have not yet seen this issue...
