  • 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.

      i got screwed on this process and i had the similar issues with iNdepedence needing me to revert back to 1.0.2 unlocked state. now i installed apptap and i cant downloads BSD Systems so inturn i cant download OpenSSH and so im screwed!! it says the host cant be found and i dont know what to do. i donte even know how i messed up with the installation. i followed everything on the instructions but then after i updated the firmware it wouldnt let me activate.

      After virginized my (1.0.2) iPhone, can I do a factory restore first with the 1.0.2 firmware then follow the guide to go about jailbreaking and unlocking my iPhone to 1.1.1? I wish to have a very clean transition from 1.0.2 to 1.1.1.

      Or would following the steps and reaching the UPDATE the firmware to 1.1.1 stage wipe out my iPhone clean, just like a OTB iPhone? I have eperimented and installed too many rubbishes on my iPhone, and I wish to have a new and clean one.

      Thanks

      give this a try
      -----------
      The latest installer beta has the wrong link in the RemotePackages.plist file for the BSD subsystem.

      RemotePackages.plist is in /var/root/library/installer/

      You need to change

      http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/zips/BSD_Subsystem-1.5.zip

      TO

      http://iphone.nullriver.com/zips/BSD_Subsystem-1.5.zip

      --------

      copy the RemotePackages.plist file into your mac, then edit it with TextEdit. Then transfer/copy the edited file back to your iPhone using Cyberduck/Fugu/etc again. simple and very easy.

      Thanks a lot for the instruction first, though it doesnot work for me in the first part.

      This is the message from the Terminal:

      BigMac:~ Han$ ssh -l root 192.168.1.5
      [email protected]'s password:
      Last login: Wed Oct 24 21:21:46 2007 from 192.168.1.4
      /bin/mv: cannot stat `/var/root/.profile.tmp': No such file or directory
      'MobileFinder will now upload the contents of ~/Library/MobileFinder/Sync to ~/iPhone on
      /usr/bin/rsync -avz --progress ~/Library/MobileFinder/Sync/ @:~/iPhone
      ssh: : No address associated with hostname
      rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
      rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at io.c(453) [sender=2.6.9]
      Upload completed.
      Press enter to exit...

      Could anyone give me some idea how to fix this? Thanks.

      Can't do that because I do not get a connection with Cyberduck since no SSH installed. SSH has to be installed after BSD and BSD fails for at least the whole day.

      Poetic Folly: I purchased the phone already unlocked 1.0.2 (couldn't wait for my unopened virgin one to arrive from the US).

      I'm pretty sure it was unlocked on a windows machine, it was most likely unlocked using 'anysim' as it was still installed on the phone when I received it.

      I followed your guide and everything seemed to be working perfectly, bar youtube which I repaired.

      I'm back up and running on 1.0.2 now.

      What do I need to do from here...

      Thanks

      Okay... so I got through the whole process. I have it unlocked to T mobile and everything... but now I CANT MAKE CALLS. What do I do to fix this?

      "Couldn't remove entry from /Users/philipcarnevale/.ssh/known_hosts. Please edit that file by hand and remove the line containing your phone's IP address."

      does anyone know how to fix this?
      alrite pacman took me forever to figure this out, but open up terminal and type in
      rm -f ~/.ssh/known_hosts
      then press enter, and that should fix the problem

      Honestly I never believe that a BSD server goes down will hinder so many of us. We have to make a workaround this problem (besides Windows version that I cannot get it working with two computers). This is a bit disappointing...

      EDIT: Should thanks whoever did a BSD (ALT.REPO), at least I am able to get BSD 1.5..... MANY MANY THANKS!!!
