  • 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.

      Just to let you guys know that the I took a longer step but seemed to work just fine. after virginizing. I actually upgraded to 1.1.1 with itunes first. then i ran independence to put it in recovery mode and back to itunes to hit option with retore back to 1.0.2 and you guys know the rest. I don't know why I did it this way but it does one thing. It really shows that the virginizer works since after the upgrade it didn't give the bad imei number and all that other stuff.

      Hello! First time to post... will this work on 4GB iphones? As I have read this will leave your phone with 300MB something before the unlock.... Thanks!

      Yes, it works fine on any of the iPhones currently unlocked on 1.0.2, wanting to upgrade to 1.1.1.

      Cool guide! Thanks!
      I was following the steps as written but I bumped into something.
      Right after tuyping "./iUnlock ./ICE03.14.08_G.fls ./eliteloader.bin" into terminal I got the printout but instead of getting back a "FW are equal" I got a "FW differences found"...will that be trouble if I go trhough with the rest of the tutorial?

      ah, glorious, these guides were just what i needed tonight. unlocking as we speak.

      One question - I no longer have Installer as a result of restoring my phone during the virginizing process. Can I install it via independence as was done for anySIM? The Installer website says it's not yet functional for 1.1.1, but i've seen it in action on someone else's phone.
