      Well said! i totally agree. and I think you're new iDemocracy app works amazingly once I get my credit card up and running with PayPal ill be sure to help you get enough money for a macbook! And just a suggestion, you don't need 2000$ to get one, you could get a refurbished macbook for around 1000-1400 depending on what model you want. And I'd go with the black one. Cuz its got a pretty fast processor and the flat black just looks better IMO.

      Great job on iD2 tho! can't wait for future updates!

      I can't wait for your donation! Thanks for supporting! And I was kind of exaggerating by the $2000 remark. However, with the rumors of Apple releasing a new MacBook at MacWorld '08 and all, prices may go up, and I want the latest and greatest model so that I can stick with it for a few years.

      oh really? wow i didnt know about that. Yea that is gonna be really sweet. Well now that I think of it its about time for them to upgrade the MacBooks. And it always seems like Apple releases the latest and greatest thing RIGHT after you buy the previous model..
      but hopefully you can get one!

      and I have one quick question. I finally seemed to downgrade my 1.1.2 FW phone, even tho I didnt do anything differently, and now i have a 1.0.2 sittin here, and im not sure how to activate it. Ive tried with iBrickr and with AppTapp and iD2 and nothing seems to be working. I seem to be gettin random results when I have my sim card in and different ones when its out. I have T-Mobile btw.

      Any ideas? Im stuck again haha. Sometimes i really hate apple..

      @wannagotopopeyes: That's odd. 1.0.2 is like the easiest firmware to do... well anything to, really Have you tried wiNstaller? It can activate pretty easily.

      Hey, how did you downgrade?

      Because I kept trying to downgrade to 1.1.1 the way he said, and I always get stuck on AppTapp after activation.

      Warning! Becareful when using AnySIM 1.1.2 using iDemocracy 2.0 !!!
      I did all the steps. When I got to the last phase: copy anySIM 1.2 over my phone, then run the application, it takes forever and forever and forever to unlock! The screen of phone keeps displaying the "apple" and the "processing circle" ....... Big Bug!!!

      yea ive tried it. It gives me the "error initializing communications with iphone" message. i guess ill just keep trying. i think its cuz i have the 1.1.2 baseband or w.e but have 1.0.2 software/firmware running. idk what to do. some guides say to use the original att sim card when u activate it after u downgrade, but I dont have that anymore, i use my Tmo. sim card. hmm idk what do

      @Trent J.
      well I might not be the best help to you, it took me a REALLY long time to finally get it to downgrade. I started with an unlocked 1.1.1 FW phone, upgraded to FW 1.1.2, without installing OkToPrep, and I think thats what fkd it up. and I tried using itunes in windows, on my mac, with my tmobile sim in and out of the phone, and i tried downgrading to 1.1.1 first then to 1.0.2 and had no luck, and today i tried to restore to 1.1.2 and then go straight to 1.0.2 and it worked, and now im stuck on the activation screen

      So much random stuff is happening im not sure what im doing right and wrong haha. but yea try that, and if not, then try different USB ports or a mac/PC depending on what your using. idk just try anything you can and remember that its never bricked, there is ALWAYS a way to fix it. hope that helps...

      Well for me, it kind-of came out of nowhere and had an amazing GUI and great features.

      A lot of things arent working for me, but they arent really part of the program, they are things you have to do outside the program in order to use the program.

      Congrats on the popular application though.

"Our democracy" references the essential message iD2 is supposed to send out, which is that we are no lesser than Apple, considering development, and considering our say in whether or not we deserve third-party apps. It shows that if Apple thinks they have to repress us, then this society is truly damaged. And finally, "Long Live the Revolution," of course, references the iPhone Revolution--the battle between us and them. They fight for dominance, but we fight for equality.
      wow thats truely said phrase!

      Ok guys I went for the Unlock method. The Dev team one. I got all the way to running anySIM then bam. I get Stuck in the rebooting loop. So I downgrade to 1.1.1 now with a 04.02.13 So I thought anySIM 1.2 would work on 1.1.1 even thought it specificaly says all firmwares. Finnaly it's finished but I have no signal. Then I downgrade again (1.0.2)this time not installing anysim and My signal is all the way up with the t-mobile symbole in the corner. Other people said It only worked on 1.0.2 for them. I didn't want 1.0.2. So I gave up on iD2. Turns out I couldn't verginize my phone with any method I could find except for iD2 their basband downgrader worked fine but the verginize didnt work all I got was acces denide 2x in the screens that pop up. when I clicked basband downgrader worked pefectly so now i'm back at 1.1.1.

      What I want to know why AnySIM won't give signal on 1.1.1 with the latest firmware and why it puts the phone in reboot in 1.1.2. Did I do domething wrong. Was I supposed to Verginize before I upgraded from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2? Witch doesn't make sence because anySIM did work on 1.0.2 with the latest baseband.

      Also I downgraded my baseband and my phone is working fine on 1.1.1 with the 04.01.13.

      So all in all this program didn't do anything good for me except for downgrading my baseband. Also is that the same as verginizing. If so why is there two buttons?

      If anyone has accidently updated to 1.1.2 just downgrade the best you can to 1.0.2. If the phone gets stuck in recovery mode boot it with iD2. Then install ssh on the phone and downgrade the baseband now your phone is as good as new. I'm not getting into details.

      There are two buttons because bb downgrading only does the first part while virginizing downgrades the bb and then runs other scripts to undo the unlocking.

      This app is great! Good work! I have a question though. I am on a 1.0.2 iphone which I unlocked using the any sim method. Now I wish to update to 1.1.1. Will I have to virginzie my phone? Whats the process I should follow with this program in order to get to 1.1.1. And also if I update to 1.1.1 will I lose everything on my phone like contacts, pictures etc.? Thanks

      @Darko_kun: You need to virginize, then upgrade to 1.1.1, then do the Short Method. However, don't virginize until you download the iDemocracy 2.0.1 patch update tomorrow, which fixes a big bug in virginizing which prevents it from completing successfully.
      Oh, and because you're doing an upgrade to 1.1.1 and not a restore, you shouldn't lose any information (but back it up first anyway).
