at first, great website.
I felt lucky because i got an virgin iPhone with 102 firmware.
I activated with independence, Community Sources, DNS Tools, BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH with apptapp, inserted the modified lockdownd file and tried to unlock via cyberduck with unlock.app - failed
restored the firmware (102) and tried it with anysim102 - failed, tried it with the old anysim - failed
restored and copied 314.fls and 314.eep via cyberduck to /usr/bin
used the mobilTerminal to get the baseband virgin:
1. cd /usr/bin
2. chmod +x bbupdater
3. launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
4. bbupdater -f 314.fls -e 314.eep
5. launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
restored again via iTunes and followed these steps:
-activate using independence,
-update firmware to 1.0.2
-again activate,jailbreak,install ssh etc.. using independence.
-install anysim(latest version) using Transmit.
-run anysim from phone
failed again i have no idea - tried so many times
what can i do? anysim tells me unlocked successfully - but it isn't
The Phone says SIM locked

i tried to virginize my phone after it was unlocked and the terminal said that the procedure was successful, but when i restarted my iphone it said invalid or unapproved sim. its the original sim that came with the iphone. should i restore to firmware 1.1.1 after i virginize? i wanted to upgrade anyways since 1.1.1 has been fully jailbreaked.

Reboot your phone and try the launchctl unload -w command again in Mobile Terminal.
You can also try this:
Uninstall BSD Subsystem & Mobile Terminal.
Re-install Mobile Terminal and then BSD Subsystem.

Hello, I have gone through many topics in this and many other forums to find a guide as to how to restore my 1.0.2 iunlocked iphone to factory (virgin) state on a MAC. Can someone please help me out with directions to a guide or instructions as to how to do it?
Thank you much

Does this Re-lock phones unlocked with AnySim?
It should, seeing as A virgin phone isn't unlocked right!
I gotta do this soon, gotta get my phone back to a fresh 1.0.2 then prepair it for 1.1.1 jailbreak and unlockmyRepoSpace.com - Easily create your own Cydia Repo.

For steps 2 & 3, it says to install ICE03.14.08_G.eep and ICE03.14.08_G.fls into bin/ which would mean [root]/bin. Is that just a typo? Because i would have assumed that these files would be put into usr/bin, since you're using mobile terminal to enter the command cd usr/bin, followed by using bbupdater on the modem files. I wouldnt think that bbupdater would be able to locate those files if they're in [root]/bin.
10-17-2007, 08:01 AM #29to clarify about "virginization"
What we need is an iPhone ressurection app that will make the phone truly "factory fresh"The Cake Is A LIE!

I'm actually restoring from my second try at upgrading to make sure that I hadn't missed a step.
I suspect that there will be an app that will address this real soon.The Cake Is A LIE!

I'm trying to virginize my phone i followed steps up untill where it says to "choose Applications > install from PXL file and choose MobileTerminal-VT100-svn161.pxl"
When i navigate to that folder the mobile terminal-vt100-svn161.pxl it isn't there.
I downloaded everything that was required yet that file is missing.
Can someone please let me know how to locate that vt100-svn161.pxl file

After changing the DNS settings, I clicked the menu button to go back to menu to launch IPSF. iPhone froze on the menu with the circle loading icon in the middle. Computer lost all connections to Iphone, and it's just sitting frozen on the menu, holding the power button doesn't do anything...
WTF do I do!?!?!?! I will be incredibly pissed off if I have to just wait for battery to run out because then I'll be phoneless for 3 days or however long the battery lasts for, and I really cannot afford to be in that situation.
For fucks sake, why couldn't I just have been happy with 1.0.2, I feel like killing myself right now. That and in 3 hours I have a practice exam, I thought fiddling my iphone to get 1.1.1 would be a nice relaxing thing to do to make me calm before exam, but now I'm ******* stressed and feel like punching stuff.
Edit: OK dunno what the **** is happening....screen is now blank. I pressed the menu and power buttons, nothing happened. Then when pressing nothing the 'slide her to unlock' screen appeared for half a second then went blank again. ??!?!?!?! WTF....seems if I press button, about 5s later the screen flashes on for ~half a second. Still no connection to itunes or putty or anything...
THIS IS ******* WORSE BECAUSE NOW THE SCREEN IS OFF 99% OF THE TIME SO THE BATTERY WILL TAKE EVEN LONGER TO DRAIN BEFORE I CAN ******* REBOOT IT
Edit again: Now it is frozen on the 'slide to unlock' screen. But is completely unresponsive still...
