  • 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.

      Thank you so very much for all your hard work. Those of us unknowledgeable fools count on the detailed hard work of cool knowledgeable people like you.

      I wish I had such a clear concise guide to unlocking the first time. You saved me at least 2 days of headaches and pain. My only problem was trying to flip back and forth on my wife's iBook. It would be fantastic if you could do the same for the PC (or work with someone else to produce the same for a PC).

      BUT MOST OF ALL - THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! :-D

      Thanks pf (and crew) for all the hard work and time you've put into this, as well as the whole site in general.

      I waited until the 1.0.2 activation/unlock was perfected and it went w/o a hitch. So, I figured waiting until the 1.1.1 frenzy was over and go from there. And again, a perfect, no-hassle upgrade, activation and unlocking session. The longest part was downloading the 1.1.1 update (45 mins on this crap network). Other than that, it only took about 15 minutes.

      Ok, Im a little confused here. I have an unlocked 1.0.2 with 03.14.08_G firmware and what i want to do is upgrade to 1.1.1. with IPSF. I had bricked my phone then followed the guide here to bring it back. I virginized my phone but when it got to the itunes part, it gave me and error and kicked me out. So i had to restore with the originial guide here and successfully got to 1.0.2 with 03.14.08_G via iUnlock. So thats where I was at recently. Ok, now what i did was try to revirginize and update to 1.1.1 but i keep getting stuck at "waiting for data" for the seczone backup part and never was succesful. So what i did was restore 1.0.2 again and this time wanted to use IPSF but what im confused about is that once I restored my phone, i jailbroke and installed installer with simfree application but when I ran the application it said "already unlocked." I never unlocked it though???? i put in my tmobile sim and sure enough it was working?? how could it work if it was a fresh install and never unlocked after that?? confused..please help me. I want my phone to be fresh out of the box state so i can use IPSF..help!

      ok..this is what i did...got my IPSF license...it gave me a link to the dev team virginize kit thing..did it, worked like a charm. After virginizing, I restored in iTunes to the 1.1.1..after it did its thing, it brought me to the activation screen, so I followed the instructions on the IPSF website on doing the jailbreakme.com thing...worked like a charm once again. So basically i got everything working on the 1.1.1 phone except using the IPSF application itself (v 1.7). 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.

      HEY!! So i was still running into the Jailbreak failed after the 1.1.1 upgrade, so i tried http://modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13015 (jailbreakme.com) and it crashed like it was suppost to but still said please activate after it restarted, so after that i went back to independence and for fun clicked activate and this time it worked. I dont know if this was a fluke but people who are having issues try it


      Edit: So I got everything to work (had to install ssh and bsd subsystem from installer.app) then installed anysim, it worked then connected to itunes and it only said 300mb and i found this thread with the fix :-) http://modmyi.com/forums/showthread....hone+has+300mb download and run the app and it worked.


      FYI I did this whole update on a mac system running 10.5 :-)

      I got my 1.0.2 iphone to work pretty good with this guide and got it up to the 1.1.1 firmware. If i wanted to... how could I go about doing the entire process over again? Can I just start from the beginning again even though I have 1.1.1 firmware? Also, I was thinking of going back down to 1.0.2... how could I do this without messing up my iphone?

      Thanks to everyone again for all of the help and things...
      Anyone have any info on this for me???

      Hello,

      I cannot begin to thank you enough for the unlock method that you have provided for everyone on this forum. I had an iphone unlocked with tmobile on 1.0.2 firmware using the OSX guide on this forum from a few months ago. I recentley used your method to upgrade to 1.1.1. I did this succesfully... but I am wanting to go back down to 1.0.2 Do you know how i could do this? I thought that I could totally virginize my phone using you program and then revert back to the old guide that I used to finish the process... I would really appreciate your help...

      I thank you very much...

      Does anyone have the problem after updating an unlocked 1.02 to 1.1.1. that programs (safari, ipod, installer, etc.) suddenly quit and you return to your home screen or "slide to unlock" screen?

Then after you use the old independence to activate and jailbroken you could follow the steps in folly's guide it works fine.

      And ANIMAXY, after i done everything my youtube didnt work either...well i fixed it already, this is how you do it. Go search and download three files for the youtube. Im not sure where it is but you have to search for it on this forum then use cyberduck to place it in this location but cant think it right off of my head right now. If you still cant fix that problem let me know ill help u
      Thanks mate,adding those three files to my iphone did the trick,youtube works flawlessly now!

      I just want to ssh to my iPhone to re-virginize it, but I can't because the rsync tries to sync files. I already estalished a connection with a successful file transfer, but the terminal still sais "Press enter to exit..."

      How can I get rid of this rsync-process?

      Please help me, otherwise I'm not able to type the terminal commands to re-virginzie my iPhone (is on 1.0.2 and have installed MobileFinder and Terminal).

      Greetings!
      Hi Mac-Beat, I found the solution (if you are a Mac user). I can not yet report on virginizing and all the other steps (havent done that yet). This is what I did step by step, and I can now ssh my iPhone without any problem:

      - 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
