  • 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.


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


    Then just downgrade the baseband only, then unlock

    OSX Step 10 through 17

    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

      Hi, I'm about to update my 1.0.2 unlocked iPhone to 1.1.1. Only I still have some worries.

      If I get this right I notice that at the end of the guide you will end up with a 1.1.1 version phone but with a 3.14 modem firmware. Is this really what you want? I think that there is a reason other then prevent the unlocking to update the major version of a firmware. Does some one know it the iPhone Dev Team is doing the same approach but with a one-click UI application?

      I am running version 1.0.2, the phone is unlocked , jailbroken and running third party apps. My question is how to upgrade to version 1.1.1 so that i can get the bluetooth music streaming and then unlock it. I am not using a At&t activated sim.

      Is there anyone out there who can finally answer the question how to get the BSD Subsystem files to the phone?

      We download both files. We extract them. But which of the files do get the new name? And why does it now work to get them on the phone?

      Come on, there must be someone out there...

      does the following command line need to be copy n pasted as it is or does it need altering....

      cp /path/to/1.1.1-jailbreak/iPhoneActivation.pem /path/to/iASign/bin/

      also is this to be entered in ssh mode or from the mac

      I followed the all of the guides and ended up with an unlocked iphone 1.1.1 but the only thing that made me go back to 1.0.2 is that I could not sync with itunes. I then tried to get ibrickr to downgrade the iphone but it kept telling me that there was no phone connected. I found out after messing with every thing that you have to leave the lockdownd file from 1.0.2 on the phone to get the phone to make calls and when you do that it does not activate the usb functions of the iphone in firmware 1.1.1 so i had to put lockdownd file from 1.1.1 back on the iphone. After a restart the phone would say that I did not have any service on the phone. After i tried and tried I just gave up and went back to 1.0.2.

      The ppl that are having problems getting ieraser to work. Follow all of the guide and get apptapp installer on the phone and install terminal on the phone when you get down to the firmware downgrade stage use the iphone terminal and everything will work on that stage. If you find a way to get the phone to sync with itunes and have service then please let us know.

      I got it . I have almost all working fine. I can´t sync with Itunes and I can`t charge battery with my macbook.

      I did a mix using MacOSX and Winxp (for installing Installer.app).

      For restoring baseband to 1.0.2 version I had to do with a MobileTerminal. If you did with ssh you maybe lost Wifi and It didn`t work.

      Youtube need to be activated following an answer from this forum. You need to download this and do that:

      "You have to put this 3 files (data_ark.plist,device_private_key.pem,device_publ ic_key.pem) in /private/var/root/Library/Lockdown and to copy the -DeviceCertificate key from the data_ark.plist to the DeviceCertificate key of the plist that you found in /private/var/root/Library/Lockdown/activation_records."

      I got accents in vowels, itunes wifi, tvout and more features.

      But, What can I do for syncing with Itunes again? I removed the symbolic link as indicates the guides

      i've been asking the same question jeetu610 but have yet to have anyone say yes or no, it would be helpful to have a guide for those of us that haven't upgraded to 1.1.1 but have iunlocked and are running 3rd party apps that want to upgrade to 1.1.1

      hopefully there will be a "one click" from the dev team like we had for unlocking 1.0.2 soon. but i would still like to know how to upgrade anyway.

      Hi Guys,
      I am still on 1.0.2 and the phone works fine. I used the free unlock to make my phone free. For me the question is the following:

      Can i virginize my phone really like out of the box with this method and then use the Turbo Sim Method and upgrade to 1.1.1? Is this working without problems or giving problems again?

      Tried this all day to unlock 1.1.1

      there is a major problem with this method. the unlock doesnt work. and it put the phone to reactivation everytime i flash with bbupdate.

      I had every problem i could imagine. while using ieraser my wifi died which left me in a major restore state. (used ibickr on windows to bring the phone back to life).

      i am going to wait for more to try again.

      Well there really isn't a major problem with the method, you just have to really know what your doing or it wont work for you. Plenty have succeeded using this method already.

      I was able to complete all steps (virginize, sym links, upgrage to 1.1.1, jailbreak 1.1.1, ssh into 1.1.1), however when I got to the step of ieraser the process just hung. I ended up having to reboot the phone because it would not reconnect to my WiFi network. I thought I had bricked my phone, however after hours of playing around with it I am now back on 1.0.2, but get a "IMEI number incorrect" message every time I use iTunes. If I remove my sim and then plug in the phone, iTunes works; I have to do this every time...

      Does anyone know how to fix the IMEI problem? My IMEI matches the back of my phone... what gives?!?

      Thank you to everyone that helped make these guides, I have donated and will continue to do so as more updates become available.

      Thanks to anyone that helps,

      Hi, stoiber

      I have the same problem as you before and fixed by virginize the baseband and apply anySIM.app again and it fixed the issue.

      I tired this, however I am still getting the IMEI error on iTunes... I think I may have done permeant damage to this phone, I have one more 1.0.2 phone to try the 1.1.1 upgrade and unlock on. I will keep everyone posted.

      UPDATE: I have successfully fixed this problem, I virginized the baseband, re-applied the anySIM.app and then used iNdependence to activate the phone. The strange thing is, iNdependence showed the phone not being activated however the phone acted as if it was... I was able to make and receive phone calls, SMS, etc... Bottom line, I am now able to plug my phone into iTunes without issue.

      Ieraser didn't work to you due you did from a Terminal in yours mac or PC. The baseband downgrade it's needed to do from the own Iphone. I installed Mobileterminal and I installed succesfully. No obstanding, a Spanish guy who did using your way lost wifi and ieraser didn't work.

      Now you have to start again the guide but you need to repair your wifi (and I think you have imei corrupt too)

      Independence 1.2.2 is released and It activates 1.1.1 phones. I need to restore the lockdownd 1.1.1 and pass this Independence for getting itunes. I have a "succesful" firmware 1.1.1 with BB 1.0.2 unlocked but I can't to connect to itunes. The lockdownd I have installed is from 1.0.2 version and maybe that is my problem.

      I just did finish the step 6 succesfully. And the iPhone stays "Unactivated" as it says in the last 'Phase 6 Clean Up' message : iPhone state : Unactivated.

      But in the next step, step 7, we have to SSH via terminal to the iPhone with the IP. How can I get the IP (with wifi) when the iPhone remain "unactivated"? Do I have to Activate it first? Though I cannot activate the iPhone with iNDependence ver 1.2.2 (with message : no AFC connection).

      Am I missing somewhere?
