      This is the link to the framework on iDemocracy's site:

      @leigh1201: If you're 1.0.2 is unlocked, you HAVE to virginize it or you'll get bricked. Use iDemocracy to virginize (with SSH installed, of course), before proceeding.

      @shadybeagle: Get WinRAR.

      Well I want to but I'm confused on the steps to take.
      Do I just press the virginize button in independence then upgrade? (I'm guessing I'll go up to 1.1.2) or should I download the unpatched 1.1.1 and shift-restore?what about the activation and unlock?
      Edit: I don't have SSH involved nor am I familiar with it. Always avoided command lines (used automated scripts)

      @giojane: Sorry, I'm getting so many messages I forgot what you were trying to do if you're trying to get to 1.1.1 and you're on unlocked 1.0.2, you want to virginize first (with iNdependence or iDemocracy2) and then upgrade to 1.1.1, then run iD2's short method to get jailbroken, at which point you can continue on to jailbreak 1.1.2 if you really want to.

      my iphone has already been jailbroken in 1.1.1... will i still be able to use the file/media management with this?

      Thank you for answering anyway
      I'm sure you're overwhelmed now. I'll let the storm calm down for a few days. I'm sure someone thoughtful will post an unlocked 1.0.2 to 1.1.2 tutorial within the ease of independence.
      It's very thoughtful of all these devs to offer solutions for illiterate folks like us when they could just fix their phone and move on.
      Again, thank you!

      @viperrepiv: As long as your 1.1.1 has OpenSSH or DropbearSSH installed, and the password is still "alpine" you're good to go.

      My iPhone has been unlocked before so do I need to virginize my iPhone before I try to unlock it? Can I virginize it with iDemocracy? I'm on 1.1.2

      @jdbmac20: If your iPhone is currently unlocked you need to virginize. If it was previously unlocked but now isn't, you don't need to worry. iD2 can virginize, but only on firmware 1.0.2 (not safe on other firmwares yet). If you're not unlocked, don't worry. Is your iPhone upgraded to 1.1.2 or did you buy it with 1.1.2? If you bought it with 1.1.2 and it came with bootloader 4.6 you're not going to be able to unlock it.

      I upgraded it to 1.1.2 but on 1.1.1 it was unlocked. So should I downgrade to 1.0.2?
    1. Drakenza's Avatar
      Drakenza -
      Hm... wait, you upgraded to 1.1.2 while you were unlocked? And you didn't get bricked?!
      Anyway, I would assume your unlock got at least overwritten so you're probably a virgin anyway. If you want to be safe, downgrade to 1.0.2 and virginize. I assume your 1.1.2 is not jailbroken?
      You might just want to stick with 1.1.1, it's a lot easier.

      i upgraded to 1.1.2 when i was on unlocked 1.1.1 FW, but im not bricked. well it wont let me downgrade it just stays in restore mode, but i can restore 1.1.2 and i just need the right sim card. so can iD2 help me out? i really just want to get the thing activated right now.

      Jail/unlock would be GREAT but i just want to know if i can activate cuz i dont have an ATT sim

      @wannagotopopeyes: You can't downgrade? That's a new one... Did you go into DFU restore mode (i.e. Hold down Home+Sleep, let go of Sleep, wait until iTunes sees recovery mode)? If you're in DFU you should be able to downgrade. After downgrading to 1.1.1, iD2 can jailbreak it for you, then help you get to a jailbroken 1.1.2. If your iPhone didn't ship with FW 1.1.2 you can use anySIM 1.2 to unlock it.

      Come on people, Digg it 13,000 downloads and 5 diggs...?

      @Nifty: Glad the ringtone syncing works. Good to have that confirmed.

      Oh, and on a similar note:

      I have seen no mention about the password for root ? Or is "alpine" still working for FW 1.1.2 ?
