  • Free Unlock Is Here!
    UNLOCK IS HERE!

    FULL TUTORIAL IS HERE FOR OS X USERS!!!



    Daeken, Darkmen, guest184, gray, iZsh, pytey, roxfan, Sam, uns, Zappaz, Zf, plus Nightwatch for the toolchain were responsible for this, and it is HERE! WHA HOO!

    I have updated the guide to reflect the new GUI app for unlocking, it is much easier. Link updated in this post. It is here.

    If you would like your voicemail to keep working correctly, follow this guide. NOTE: This already works with carriers who's name shows up in the top of the iPhone, namely, T-Mobile.

    Problems?

    Check the F.A.Q. before asking questions!

      you didn't create the /usr/local/etc directory

      create this directory then copy the minirc.dfl file into it

      you can find this file here

      enjoy and check my previous post if you're using putty the alt-enter thingy cost me 2 hours

      are you still getting the configuration files not found error.
      this error means it's not finding the minirc.dfl file
      check all spelling for both the filename and directories

      also check to see if you created the directories in the wrong place

      it should be [SYSTEM_ROOT]/usr/local/etc/minirc.dfl

      are you using putty/windows? if so then hit 'right-alt'+enter

      Ideas anyone?
      check the permissions on the dfl file it should be rw-r--r--

      you can easily change the permissions of the file

      chmod +w minirc.dfl

      did you use the right alt button? i can't stress this enough it caused me no end of trouble.
      try typing just:
      AT

      you should get an OK
      if not then there is something wrong with the minicom or your connection to it. I found reinstalling and trying again worked for me.

      Quick note about the termcap thing mentioned a couple pages back:

      If you get an error about no termcap database, download Geohot's pack of files for the hardware unlock and copy the termcap database from there into the etc directory.

      You may have to re-unlock the phone, sounds like something didn't write properly during the unlocking process.

      Anyone know what this means :

      Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
      It is also possible that the RSA host key has just been changed.
      The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is

      The x's is where my name would been. I restored using itunes 741 and used iNepedence to activate and jailbreak and ssh. So I wanted to make sure that my user and password worked and I got that. No clue why I got that.

      this means that you have reinstalled your SSH server.
      you've probably already connected to a previous ssh server and now the RSA key has changed
      you may have to delete your known hosts or add this one to make it work
      Add correct host key in /Users/xxxx/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.

      if you delete your known_hosts file it will forget all the previous hosts and ask you for new RSA keys

      Just type in a Terminal window:

      rm /Users/YOURUSERNAME/.ssh/known_hosts

      Then try it again.

      Download this.

      SSH/PuTTy/FuGu into your phone.

      Go to your /usr directory. Create a directory called local. Navigate to that and create a directory called etc

      In the /usr/local/etc directory you just created, put the termcap file from that link I put.

      EDIT: poetic, you might wanna throw this in the guide or something for those that may not have tried the hardware unlock and don't have/know what termcap is. even with minicom -s'ing it'll kick back the no termcap error.
