  • NEW GUIDE: Jailbreaking a 1.1.1 locked AT&T iPhone
    I have written up this quick guide to clear up some confusion. Many people with locked 1.1.1 iPhones on AT&T have had the misconception that they must downgrade to 1.0.2 and virginize their phones and then jailbreak up to 1.1.1.

    This is not the case. If you have a locked AT&T iPhone running 1.1.1 firmware you can just use iJailbreak for iPhone to jailbreak. Although this is extremely easy to do I have made a quick guide Here is the guide. Sorry windows users, this is OS X only. As soon as someone buys me a nice PC I'll write some windows guides .

    I hope this clears up any confusion and those with locked 1.1.1 AT&T iPhones don't go through unnecessary steps.

      The applications folder? Mine is there and it keeps erroring at SSH. I'll keep at it.

      EDIT: My problem might lie in that I keep getting a format error when I try to unzip the ijailbreak.zip.

      Is there a way someone could post an unzipped file?

      EDIT: Ok I downloaded Zipeg and it seemed to unzip no problem..> Trying Jailbreak now...

      What about for out of the box 1.1.1? Is there an activation in 1.1.1. yet that does not require downgrading/upgrading alla independence?

      that would be the problem. does my mirror in the mmi downloads section not unzip for you? I had that same problem from the creators site so i tired and tired till I got one that works, unzipped it and re archived it from my comp and uploaded it here.

      someone correct me if i'm wrong . . . . you can use post #12 to get to the website required for this jailbreak
      http://modmyi.com/forums/showpost.ph...5&postcount=12

      and i believe after you finish jailbreaking you can just activate using the most recent independence

      Yeah I tried both links and neither file would expand properly using stuffit... however i downloaded a program called ZIPEG and it seems to unzip it without a hitch. I'm restoring my phone to a fresh 1.1.1 right now and then I'll see if it jailbreaks it momentarily.

      EDIT: Ok That did it! Installer is back in action on 1.1.1. Thank you very much for the post!

      HI iam maritimeswimmer:

      iam from Panama country in central/carribean americas.

      I wanted to let you know that you site rocks and its pretty cool to be able to unlock the iphone by your great guidance and awsome hacking.

      i wanted to send you a message regarding the 1.1.1 update guide that you have on your website.

      i did the entire thing as it was written in the site, but now i cant make calls, i used "anysim" and what it told me at the of the procedure it was that it couldnt unlock my iphone and now iam stock with a brick phone. although i can use every single feature of the phone, but the most important feature of the phone which is making calls, that one i cant use.

      Please i really need help on this, i have downgraded the version two times and neither of them helped, i have installed "installer" on both occassions and neither of them helped it. i have used independence with intstaller and neither of them has unlock the iphone. another thing that i wanted to tell you its that i can activate the iphone and i can use every single feature but no calling.

      iam using the anysim version for 1.0.2 for iphone and what it says its "The firmware on this iphone is already patched.anysim will now quit.Please turn off your iphone and turn it on again after anysim quits". i obviously dont know what that means and i like to know what does that really means.

      if you guys can help, please write me here or email me at [email protected] and if you guys can guide me step by step with this. ah something else i wanted to tell, its that neither the at&t sim which came with the iphone and my Panama Cable wireless sim card, neither of them its working now. i do write my password for the cable and wireless one but what happens its that it gives me a message saying "Incorrect sim, this iphone must be used with an approved sim" this happens with my cable and wireless sim card, and with the at&t one, haha it cant even read it. it says incorrect sim card.

      Please guys help me out here.

      Thanks again, and i hope you can use me as a reference and situation for helping other people.

      Thanks

      maritimeswimmer you're using an older version of anysim

      you should use the latest anysim not 1.0 but shoud be 1.1.0 that should work i did it on 3 phone now.

      i did the method where you dial *#307# and instead of doing it quick i did two urls on one contact, one was something like pref:// and then i didn't have to do the 'quickly touch settings' method, settings menu came up on its own, and i got wifi working and then ran CARNAVAL. it's the only method that worked for me. summerboard is sideways instead of up and down now but everything is fine and i got my phone function back on 1.1.1 and it's jailbreak i have att. found a guide by dale and used his program but a lot of apps didn't work afterwards (i had phone service back until i ran anysim), i retried it with carnaval but used the other url dale had in his faq and it worked fine i got my phone service back as well and haven't tried unlocking yet (i have att) more apps seem to work tho. used wifi to load programs. good luck, hacking 1.1.1 is possible it took me forever to find the guide so happy hacking.

      i'm trying to unlock for a couple other people. Do i leave the original sim card in or do i need there's in order to unlock? Also if i do use the sim that was included in the iphone do i just need to take it out before doing anysim or iunlock and tell them to run it with their sim card? any help would be great.

      The error before the SSH install is something to do with no directory found. I double check and the ijailbreak is in my applications folder. So I have no idea why it is giving me this error.

      Can anyone help? I had a phone that was 1.0.2. I upgraded thinking I can handle the hacking. But I failed! I then down grade to 1.0.2. So far so good. I then ran ibrickr so far so good. My iphone is freed and on 1.0.2. However, I now get incorrect SIM error message. I even went to install a new SIM, but I still get same error message. What can I do now? I dont run MAC OS only Windows Vista. Can anyone help me? At this point I dont even care if I get 3rd party apps AND I only wish to be on at&t network. I just want my iphone back in operation. I will even pay if that will help.

      Thank You,
      Art

      When it unzipped, did you also get an error message? This is what was happening to me. Go look at page 2 of this thread of a solution.
