  • Free Unlock running 1.1.1 with a 1.0.2 baseband
    you saw it on mmi first. Free unlock for 1.1.1

    Using bits and pieces of some guides here on mmi JedixJarf has confirmed free unlocking running 1.1.1

    First you need to virginize your iphone.

    OSX
    Windows

    next you need to get 1.1.1 jailbroken and running ssh and bsd installed and your phone activated on 1.1.1

    OSX
    Windows

    Then just downgrade the baseband only, then unlock

    OSX Step 10 through 17
    Windows



    You may not want to try this until the method has been perfected. If you don't know what you're doing don't Try this. It works, but if you mess up at all you will corrupt the baseband beyond repair. If you are patient you can wait until The Dev Team updates anysim to work on the 1.1.1 or another 1.1.1 app is created

      I got through the jailbreak on my AT &T activated phone with the 1.1.1 upgrade...I'm about to downgrade the baseband so I can unlock for use with another sim...which unlock should I use? I tried to use anysim to unlock from 1.0.2 firmware/baseband...but got the message "flash successful, but unlock was not!! In 1.1.1 should I again try anysim? or should I try unlock.app? or iunlock2?

      I had the same problem with both anysim and unlock.app neither would work...it would flash the baseband, but anysim said it was unable to unlock...unlock.app looked like it worked, but the sim was "incorrect"

      i know this is a stupid question but I havent seen the answer to it yet. What happens when we need to do a restore of 1.1.1? Does it update the baseband again or will something error out? I suppose if something should happen we could always use bbupdater to flash 1.1.1 baseband again right?

      what version is the newest version of anysim?

      I have gotten through the first two parts of unlocking 1.1.1, but I cannot downgrade the baseband because I am unable to add the files to /usr/bin...how can I do this??? when I use cyberduck...it doesn't let me in with the password "alpine"...it gives me an error..."unexpectedly terminated" or something...any ideas?

      A new anysim was released not too long ago but its in ALPHA stage which means EXPERIMENTAL. Check the Unlocking for a link.

      c/p:
      Solution!
      Here is the real solution (other than the crap shoot of trying over and over again). It appears that there are 2 restore modes, the one where you see the itunes logo and connector, and another where the screen is black. Turn off your iphone by holding the power button. Once off, hold the power button and home button for exactly 10 seconds (THE SCREEN WILL BE BLACK), then release the power button and continue to hold the home button (THE SCREEN WILL STILL BE BLACK). iTunes will now recognize your phone and the restore will work successfully! Good luck!

Is there a way just to unlock the current 1.1.1 firmware, so i can use my non-ATT simcard? Please advice, thank you
      hey bluegopher,

      I had the same situation, this is a brief summary of what i did (using only modmyi.com guides):
      1st - Downgraded my firmware to 1.0.2.
      2nd - Activate my iphone with a non at&t sim using independence only after you check you have 1.0.2
      3rd - Install BSD Subsystem and Open SSH.
      4th - downgrade your baseband
      5th - unlock iphone using anysim.

      right now i have no interest at all to upgrade to 1.1.1 since i am in venezuela and i cannot access wifi itunes.

      hope this helps.

      Shadow450,

      That guide is taken from a readme file that comes with 1.1.1 jailbreak files that iphone devteam have developed , in order to do as they say you must have ssh access to the iphone.
      here (http://modmyi.com/wiki/index.php/Dev...reak_1.1.1_OSX) you will find a fine guide that tells you how to jailbreak 1.1.1, since all new processes begin with downgrading 1.1.1 to 1.0.2 and if you don't mind not having wifi itunes my advise would be to stay in 1.0.2 as long as possible.

      if you want to know how to downgrade from 1.1.1 to 1.0.2 here's the guide (http://modmyi.com/wiki/index.php/Dow...firmware_1.0.2)
