  • 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

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.

      I also had an unlocked 1.0.2, and followed the steps to erase the baseband and rewrite it with 03, then followed all the procedures to unlock 1.1.1, I ran AnySim 1.1., which said "Unlock Successful" but I got the Incorrect SIM error. After the "virginization", the IMEI is unaffected when upgrading to 1.1.1, which is good.

      I then resorted to trying to just downgrade the baseband to 03, and when I entered the command ieraser, the terminal froze on me. At any rate, the Wifi was fried and the "Repair Needed" message came up. So I restored the phone back to 1.0.2 (which worked). Interestingly enough, when I restored the phone, the baseband automaitcally reverted back to 03 despite the fact I did not install it as the ieraser command hung up. I think I screwed up the baseband to the point where the system automatically restored the baseband as well. At any rate, I unlocked it again with AnySim, and I'm now really going to wait for the virginizing tool.

      In the last two days, I've probably repeated the 1.1.1 upgrade and downgrade process 8 times on the same phone, and I still haven't managed to fry my phone yet.

      Hey the_unknown, what was the original firm of your iphone?

      hey jacobzking, what phones have you unlock successfully 1.1.1 phones as in this was the original firm of phones? how?

      Ok I think i'm gonna speak for most when I say this.

      I have a stock 1.1.1 iphone that i was just gonna use independence and the help instructions in independence to downgrade to 1.0.2 at which point i tried to use the unlock.app which said it was successful but after putting in a t-mobile sim no go (incorrect sim) message. I didn't go back any steps from here and just cyberducked the anysim.app (1.0 i think not this new one yet.) and this one just hung up and had some kind of error and could not complete some thing about the nor. anyways I then just factory restored from itunes back to where it now says to activate the iphone. Im I screwed or should i try again since the new any sim is out. I don't need the full upgrade to 1.1.1 i just want it to work with 1.0.2

      My iphone is 1.1.1 but i downgrade to 1.0.2 and fix de baseband to 03.14.08_G and unlock.

      Can I restore it to 1.1.1 and use the new AnySim 1.1?

      The instructions FOR WINDOWS work perfectly. I followed them with my 1.1.1 iphone, and I got it to downgrade to 1.0.2, change the baseband, and unlock it. I never used AnySim.

      I believe there are no GOOD instructions as to how to use AnySim.

      For the other part, EXCELLENT WORK, I have no problems at all, and using now my iphone with another carrier other than ATT.

      Great work!

      No. If you have a mac and a 1.1.1 never unlocked IPHONE read this. I unlocked my iphone after running the independence 1.2.3 whole process. After that I didnīt know what to do. So I read and read posts and threads and decided to do the following and WORKED!!! After the whole independence 1.2.3 process connect the iphone and open ssh with independence 1.2.3 (donīt forget to close Itunes) get connected to ssh and then open the customize label. Once there go to applications---user----add type your iphone ip address and password: alpine. Then drop there the ANYSIM unzipped file. An icon with the image of ANYSIN appears on the iphone. In it go to general switch the auto unlock to never put your non at&t sim inside and turn off the phone,reboot. Press the Anysim button an install the software. After about 10 minutes a sign telling that your phone is unlocked appears....and yes!!! Itīs real!!!!! Everything works: WIFI, text messages, voicemail, youtube, calls: in and out. I canīt believe it. Try this method....hope it works for you too

      Please take some time to read the posts before you ask questions. The long time and most knowledgable posters here have taken a break from trying to help. Frankly I dont blame them. They do this for free and when the same questions keep being asked, they just leave. Your question has been answered MANY times and if you would take the time to do a little research, you could find the answer. You have to "virginize" your phone before you attempt the new method. If you are unsure what "virginize" means I suggest you take a few hours to look through all the posts. You will be able to tell who is knowledgable. Take some time. In the course of answering the question you have, you may learn other things as well.

      Remember, these people are doing this for free. Take some time to educate yourself. Then when you have a problem, they are more likely to be helpful. I am not trying to flame you and I understand how it feels to want information now but these guys have been answering the same questions for 36 hours and they are fried.

      Please take some time to read the posts and 3 hours is by no means enough, but it is a good start.

      Ok...go "virginize" your phone.

      Estelin

      When you run the new Independence with a new in box 1.1.1 what is the exact sequence? Do you click the "jailbreak" tab then "activate" or is it the other way around?

      I would assune one could SSH into the phone with Cyberduck and drop Anysim in the applications folder too right?

      i tried terminal to get anysim on the iphone but had some problems, so i just used cyberduck and it worked, now i am wondering if i should run anysim with my at&t sim card, or no sim card, or the sim card i plan to use (non at&t)

      edit: anysim tells you before u click the unlock button to insert your new sim not at&t, i just started the process....

      edit: 5 minutes later....it worked...like a charm

      In 1.0.2, anysim wants the new sim card while it unlocks. Might be different in 1.1.1, though.

      awesome! thats great news.

      What i want to know is does this reset the baseband firmware to 1.0.2 or does it unlock the 1.1.1 baseband?

      I'm also wondering how the hell they managed to unlock 1.1.1 when buffer overflow is removed...?

      In the first jailbreaking sequence (after donwgrading to 1.0.2) Activate and the jailbreak. In the second jalibreaking sequence (after the 1.1.1 upgrade) you have to only activate because the process activates and jailbreak in this instance. Related to ssh I did it with Independence 1.2.3 ssh (get connected to ssh and then open the customize label. Once there go to applications---user----add type your iphone ip address and password: alpine. It´s really easy. Then drop there the ANYSIM unzipped file. An icon with the image of ANYSIN appears on the iphone. In it go to general switch the auto unlock to never put your non at&t sim inside and turn off the phone,reboot. Press the Anysim button an install the software. After about 10 minutes a sign telling that your phone is unlocked

      Hey there,
      If you followed this guide from starting with an unlocked 1.0x iPhone you will find that you'll have a very phoneless "iPhone"... just an "i" really...

      You might find that you ended up geting incorrect IMEI and looking something like 0049... and even if the AnySIM app said your unlock was successful you'll get the "Invalid SIM" error. Unfortunately it looks like nothing can be done about this until the DevTeam release their revirginizer tool, which will hopefully restore the nvram.

      To fix the IMEI issue, i just used iNdependence to put my iPhone into recovery mode, then used iTunes to option-restore to the older firmware and then went on following the guide at:
      http://modmyi.com/wiki/index.php/Dow...1_to_1.0.2_OSX

      I didn't do the last step so that I am back at 1.02 running firmware 3 and unlocked.

      Now... PLEASE REMOVE this guide before it wastes even more hours of peoples time.

      Hope this helps. Fingers crossed that the virginizing tool isn't far off.

      I think cash has said something really wrong here.
      So to make it clear:

      NO WORKING UNLOCK FOR FW1.1.1 IS AVAILABLE FOR THOSE WHO HAVE EVER USED ANYSIM.

      and there is NO SUCH THING: VIRGINIZING YOUR IPHONE.
