  • 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

      Yeah, u gotta virginalize your iphone first if you wanna run this method.

      im not sure whether to press ahead with the v1.1.1 update because the exploit does not seem to be completing

      I had to restore 102 for the exploit to install.

      Stevonw Have you tried this method? I would like to ask this question to someone WHO HAS ACTUALLY DONE THE 1.1.1 UNLOCK.

      I think posts by people (good intentioned though they may be) who "think" they understand it or are "guessing" shouldn't post, because someone might mistakenly take that post as an authoritative one and fark up their phone.

      JedixJarf What are your thoughts on re-virginizing a 1.0.2 unlocked phone and then using your method?

      The deal with this unlock method is that it depends on the 1.1.1 Jailbreak method that expressly states that those who have unlocked their phones by modifying the baseband SHOULD NOT do it.

      It is my understanding that you cannot "revirginize" the baseband. And since there are/were several methods of unlocking 1.0.2, there are many areas where people may get hung up because not all methods are the same.

      What happened? What do you see now? What can you do/cannot do?

      Your report will help others to diagnose the problem and propose a solution.

      So you had an unlocked 1.0.2 phone (by what method?), tried this free update and now you are locked at 1.1.1. Is the phone still functional? Are all components functional? You determined that it's locked how? Do you have an AT&T SIM to test that it is still functional or are you guessing that it is because it's asking for an ATT SIM?

      The phone is still functional, i unlocked via anySIM and yes i was on v1.02. I had virginalized the basband as in step 1 of this guide before proceeding. Where i went wrong was with the 1.1.1 HACK (The one u install before upgrading) and decidied to upgrade anyway.

      So this hack may still work, its my fault that im in this situation lol.

      Im downgrading back to v1.02 now

      I'm not sure what im doing wrong, but every time i run terminal and about to type in the password dottie it wont let me. It wont let me type in anything. (i can still press enter) and i have already replaced and installed the edit files via cyberduck. Is there some kind of setting that i need to change, or is it a matter of copy paste but that also doent work. Im thinking about finishing it up on a pc, maybe that will work?

      Any help will be appreciated
