  • Unlock 1.1.1 firmware FOR FREE AnySim 1.1
    The Dev Team has released anysim 1.1 which unlocks both 1.1.1 and 1.0.2 iPhone firmware. Note it will not fix baseband issues caused by the old version combined with an upgrade. To repair your baseband please follow This for Windows and This for OSX.

    download anysim 1.1
    mirror for anysim

    For all of you who have been holding off on paying iPhone SIM Free $60-$100, good news. The iPhone Dev Team has announced AnySIM 1.1. According to the announcement by netkas, the software has been tested with both 1.0.2 and 1.1.1. AnySIM offers a free unlocking solution for iPhone users and apparently, if I'm reading this correctly, does NOT fix baseband problems from earlier releases. This is meant for "virgin" locked phones only. Download your copy here. Be aware that as AnySIM works, it switches off your WiFi until you reboot. Also, this is NOT intended for phones that will be updated. Do not unlock 1.0.2 and then update to 1.1.1. Updating a locked 1.0.2 to 1.1.1 will relock your iPhone. The team is testing a 1.1.1 restore on 1.1.1 unlocks right now. Remember guys: although the software here has been tested to make sure it avoids corruption--it does not hurt NVRAM/seczone--it is very new and has not had a lot of field testing yet. Caveat hackteur.

    The team is now working on finishing the iPhone revirginizer that will safely revert your iPhone to its shipped (locked) state. You like? Buy the guys a beer or something. Nazdrovyeh!

    Update: The team says if you get a "failed to unlock" on 1.0.2, you're still probably unlocked. Reboot and give it a try.

    thanks IriQuel

      Should I chmod any files in anysim 1.1 when it is in the iphone?

      Should I take the ATT sim card out of the iphone for the unlock process?

      I'll appreciate your help

      ran anysim no problem said it was done successfully but when I put in my sim card says not activated???

      Any ideas, tried running anysim again but says now it was already done.

      The phone was a new 1.1.1 brand new with nothing done to it before the jailbreak and anysim.

      Ok - reset the baseband to an AT&T locked baseband, upgraded to 1.1.1 after prepping it with INdepnedence 1.2.3, put on AnySIM 1.1, AnySIM finished, the edge icon showed up with no bars or carrier name, and when I restarted the phone it gave the "Incorrect SIM" message.

      DONT follow this guide if you had a previously unlock 1.02 iPhone, even if the baseband is restored before updating the AnySim app in 1.1.1 will say it is successful, but no service will be available. On reboot an Incorrect SIM error will appear and the AnySIM app will say it cannot unlock this phone.

      My IMEI number is now showing up as the incorrect 0049xxxxx... Maybe some of the files from the previous unlock (i used iUnlock) are still on the iPhone prevented me from using the new AnySIM.

      If anybody knows a fix please let us know, there are a few people on this forum that have had the same problem.

      Update:

      Reading over the forum about AnySIM 1.1, the guide linked to here does not fix the nvram issue from iUnlock/AnySIM pre-1.1. This means even if you follow the guide and reset your baseband, the AnySIM 1.1 will NOT work for 1.1.1.

      This should be updated in the original post - will save a number of other people a handful of hours.

      So again, just to be clear, if you unlocked 1.0.2 in any way, this WILL NOT WORK until they release a way to revirginize completely (including the nvram). So wait for the revirginizer before attempting.

      noobist, any anyone else that went through the process to end up with an IMEI error -- just use INdependence to put the phone into recover mode, then restore using option + click in iTunes the 1.0.2 firmware.

      Then let iTunes sync it up and do it's thing, and after that, you can Activate and toss AppTap on there, and get it back to the way that makes you happy.

      weird. I was messing around trying to get anysim to work with my unlock 1.0.2 and after about 3 hours of messing around I figured that it's not going to work for my phone so when trying to get it back to 1.0.2, I ran anysim 1.0.2 only to find that itunes won't sync because of a bad imei#. So, frustrated, i put it into recovery mode and put on 1.0.2 again, but this time when the iphone started up (after installing apptap again) my phone was already unlocked! weird! never had to use the old anysim or install installer or ssh or anything! crazy...

      if you are scared to type on the command line (what this virginizer tool will be essentially be doing) then yes you need to wait for someone to package into a nice gui to make it real easy for ya.

      I'm out of this thread . . . . I can tell it's going to be one of those same question for 50 pages threads

      SEARCH AND READ THE FORUMS :P
      So you said the virginizer will the same thing with the downgrading baseband guide. But as far as I know, the anySIM for FW 1.0.2 is somewhat not perfect - it corrupts the NVRAM. And this is why iPhone Elite Team emerges as they try to fix this problem. And many people say that the baseband cant completely virginize the iPhone.

      see http://code.google.com/p/iphone-elite/wiki/FAQ

      I am really confused. Which side is true?

      You can go back to the 3.14 baseband and unlock to get a working phone, and then wait for the elusive virginizing tool to repair the nvram. that simple.
