  • 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.

      Yes (to answer my earlier post), AppTap Installer can be installed on 1.1.1, no problem, either via SSH or independence:
      1. Download AppTappInstaller
      2. Unzip it
      3. control-click on AppTapp Installer and 'Show Package Contents'
      4. Navigate to Contents...Resources...Installer.App and copy it to a convenient location
      5. Copy Installer.App to your iPhone Applications folder using SSH or independence.

      Thanks heaps for the guide! It's been working great, but I've hit a snag when it came to opening up iNdependence.

      I've followed the guide, killed itunes and itunes helper and opened Independence but when I hit the Firmware tab, the Pre 1.1.1 upgrade button is greyed out...

      Any ideas why that might be and what I could do?


      Update for anyone interested:
      The button was grayed out because I hadn't installed SSH onto the iPhone. I thought OpenSSH was still there from when I installed it through Apptapp, but apparently not. So just install it through Independence and you can continue on with the guide.

      Hey PF - thanks for that guide - did it as you were posting and it works like a charm - I have 1.1.1 working and unlocked - awesome !!!

      Just one thing - anyone know how to get installer to load onto the phone - can I just run installer or do I need to do anything specific

      thanks

      Restoring the baseband went fine for me. However, when I went into independence the prep for the 1.1.1 upgrade button was greyed out. I restarted the phone and relaunched independence but nothing changed. So I went ahead and started the upgrade to 1.1.1. Downloading the update now. Will see what happens.

      UPDATE:
      I had to downgrade to 1.02, jailbreak, update to 1.1.1, jailbreak again and then unlock. Definitely proves that the restore works because when I downgraded to 1.02 the phone was relocked. Excellent work from the Elite Team!

      Does anyone know why anySIM.app would not show on springboard after jailbreak on 1.1.1?

      I restarted the thing, and still anysim won't show.

      I just had a quick question regarding my situation.

      I bought a brand new 8 GB running 1.1.1.

      I downgraded to 1.0.2 using option click.

      Then I downgraded the baseband using the dev team method.

      Now my phone is running perfect jailbroken and unlocked using anysim with 1.0.2 and baseband 03.14.08_G.

      Do I still need to re-virginize my phone before upgrading to 1.1.1 and running the new independence/anysim?

      (I double checked my IMEI number and it's the same as on the back of the box).

      Amazing.

      I firstly had a fresh 1.1.1 phone.

      Downgraded to 1.0.2 and did the usual in order to unlock my SIM.

      Had some problems regarding SMS.

      Virginized.

      Upgraded back to 1.1.1.

      Activated, Jailbroken and successfully Unlocked 1.1.1 with the SMS issue fixed.

      Now wheres installer for 1.1.1

      EDIT:

      ledude, I had to manually add anySIM back onto the phone via FTP after the Jailbreak of 1.1.1, hope this helps.

      Can I just give out a very big thank you for those who've put in so much effort in to this upgrade process. I'm now happily running 1.1.1 and had very little trouble all thanks to these people's hard work.

      Thank you!!

      Hey thanks the guide!

      I copied the installer.app, but I can't update it to version 3.
      And the summerboard 3.0a11 said i can install only to fw 1.1.1.
      Settings/general said i have got fw 1.1.1.
      So what now?

      UPDATE:
      solved this one...
      if anybody has the same problem then do this:

      1. Download LocalPackages.plist from /var/root/Library/Installer

      2. with any texteditor change the 3.0 and 3.0b4 text with 2.63 and save it. (watch out with the extension, it should be .plist and not .txt)

      3. upload the edited file to /var/root/Library/Installer

      4. restart your iPhone

      You probably dont have SSH installed yet - thats why its greyed out - you need to install SSH thru Independence and then go back and try - it should work fine

      UPDATE : Guess you figured it out
