  • 1.1.2 Hardware Unlocked by GeoHotz. Software unlock on the way...


    GeoHotz, famous for unlocking the first iPhone, has posted his instructions on hardware unlocking the 1.1.2 OTB iPhone on his blog. If you have a 1.1.2 OTB and have been waiting, wait just a few more days - hardware unlock is all well and good, but the dev team will have a new version of AnySIM working with OTB 1.1.2 iPhones very soon now that GeoHotz has sorted the hardware unlock.

    Since the 1.1.3 firmware does come with a new boot loader as well, we may be waiting til 1.1.4 for an unlock to happen for 1.1.3 OTB. Jailbreak will be sooner, though.

    (thanks to pcguysam for the news)

      Assembly Language is the mother of them all, closest thing to binary you're going to get. I don't know what these guys in particular do, but most simply use a Hex editor and a Code tracer. It's sort of akin to pausing your movie and then stepping through one frame at a time to see the details of what's going on.

      Others use a disassembler, which takes apart the compiled code and puts it into Assembly. But believe me, Assembly is tough and monotonous.

      i've read a lot that there might NOT be a 1.1.2 SW unlock as soon as we thought, I'm sure many other's are wondering if the Dev Team WILL still make one, or have they gotten stuck? can i get an official to post another update? please?

      Though I have great confidence in the Dev Team and Elite Dev Team

      I've tried this hard unlock with the UK version, but it didn't work, anyone else tried with success on the UK version or does it really not work ?

      so if i understand right... I'm not able to use anySim on my 1.1.2 otb phone even though i downgraded to 1.1.1, installed oktoprep, and updated again to 1.1.2. Even though it is jailbroken? What exactly is the reason for this? (sorry, I'm just confuuuuuused)

      OTB 1.1.2 uses a newer bootloader. The only way to use anySim is to erase the current bootloader to a lower version which involves taking apart your phone and jumping some traces... along with a number of steps and praying....

      Just be patient... they say the software unlock will be soon!
      If you don't want to wait pay... for a modified sim card solution.

      If I read the instructions correctly, he doesn't mention anything about opening up the phone. Is this correct, or am I missing something? And where do I find this prey tell "3.9 nor" file?

      (i'm asking here)
      So you load the files to the phone (I'm guessing using ssh) then install mobile terminal, then follow the instruction and install the new booktloader?

      Sounds like a software hack to me, just more towards the hardware end of the spectrum.
