    Default interesting
    Looks like you're trying to reproduce the suspected IPSF methodology.

    I'll watch this thread with great interest.

    If my weekend tests don't go well, I'll consider signing up

    There is an easier way..

    Its hopefully coming out this weekend on installer.app
    DevTeams own Application.

    Or

    You could always try the iTunes "OMFG your baseband is so f*ckd that iTunes will reflash it for you" method.

    Weve been testing that and it hasn't worked yet. Where are you getting that info?

    Dang! I just got home and was gonna try it. Ah ill just wait.

    Default Very cool!
    I'll defintely give it a try if my stuff fail.

    Question: Why does seczone restoration have to be done remotely? Can't that app be packaged and distributed so people can run it locally? Your resources are going to be pummelled when the masses try it.

    Thanks for all your contributions here, BTW!

    Interesting process you posted there ReVan.

    I suppose the million dollar question is - what happens when you then try to do the 1.1.1 update? Will the phone brick? Will it work?

    Afterall, updating to 1.1.1 is the reason half of us want this revirginising process..

  14. #11
    Woohoo!!!! Worked like a champ! Updating to 1.1.1 as I type.

    ...like a virgin......not bricking for the very first time......

    Update: Upgrade to 1.1.1 successful! No bogus IMEI, no "could not upgrade/restore messages"

    Bravo!

    where the guide for us mac users???

  16. #13
    Interesting bro... atleast you could have written, where and who posted this instructions.. Well I dont know what it didnt work for others, but it worked for me. Before i published it online I tested it on 3 patched 1.0.2 iphones.

    I updated two of those iphones to 1.1.1 and used anySIM 1.1, right now I am enjoying the iPhones.

    For mac users, the only program you have to use is

    Instead of WinSCP or Putty-- Fugu
    Instead of Installer -- Independence

    For creating the bin loader - Use Virtual Desktop for mac and iNstall XP.. until unless a executing file is created for mac

    Instead of fugu can iIuse cyberduck????

    Sorry for being so blunt

    Nope the reason is it doesnt have SCP.. SFTP would work but then you have to select Allow SCP callback.

    Dear All,

    This method has been tested and worked out by myself.

    The iPhone VirginMaker
    thanks to gray for reversing the iphone crypto, without him this server wouldn't work
    thanks to ipsf for writing a really well designed software program
    and thanks to everyone who gave seczones to play with

    Credits: thx goes to geohot for server, gray for all research and code, guest184 to retype the code error. DevTeam for the iUnlock program


    Code:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?aqe5dd05ddk
    Instructions:

    STEP 1
    To prepare, if you haven't already,
    - Download and install Apptap
    Click here for Apptap

    - winSCP (for communication and transfering file between iphone and your pc)
    Click here to download WinSCP

    -Putty (To execute commands in your iPhone from your pc)
    Click here to download Putty

    -Baseband
    http://www.mediafire.com/?21dnbevlfxu

    Now You will need to install the following items in your iphone using Installer
    a). Community Services
    b). BSD Subsystem
    c). Open SSH

    Once done.

    STEP 2
    1. Connect to your Iphone (Using winSCP)
    Code:
    IP Address: Check your current WiFi settings on your iPhone.
    (If you have trouble, try issuing a static IP.)
    Login Name: root
    Password: dottie
    Connection Type: SCP
    Port: 22
    If this is your first time connecting, it may take a minute or so. If a dialog pops up asking to Abort after 15 seconds, ignore it. If you get an error about a groups command, ignore this as well.

    Navigate to the /usr/bin directory of your iPhone (the root directory, not /var/root/ or /private/var/root).

    Drag-and-drop the extracted contents to your iphone
    bbupdater
    ICE03.14.08_G.eep
    ICE03.14.08_G.fls

    Before pressing the Copy button, press More >> to reveal more options. Check the box next to "Set permissions" and make sure the textbox has this text:

    rwxr-xr-x
    You can also enter the Octal code of 0755


    2. Now connect to your iphone using Putty, navigate to the root directory of your iphone by typing [b]/.[/] then execute
    "launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist "

    3. Now type cd /usr/bin then hit enter, then type chmod +x bbupdater and hit enter then type ./bbupdater -f *.fls -e *.eep and hit enter

    STEP 3
    1. Download ipsf, the version doesn't really matter (attached with zipped file above)
    a. Connect to your Iphone (using winSCP)
    Code:
    IP Address: Check your current WiFi settings on your iPhone.
    (If you have trouble, try issuing a static IP.)
    Login Name: root
    Password: dottie
    Connection Type: SCP
    Port: 22
    b. copy SimFree.app to /Applications
    c. Navigate to the /Application/SimFree.app directory
    d. chmod +x bbsimfree kill rm sh

    2. Change your DNS server in Wi-Fi settings to 129.21.116.152 (required)

    3. Run IPSF; it won't work if your flash isn't original so bbupdate first(the fw version doesn't matter)
    a. it will say invalid token/error update token, this is normal
    b. if it says something else, that isn't normal

    4. Go to http://129.21.116.152:49973/seczones/(your imei).bin in your PC Internet Explorer after IPSF finishes
    a. use your real imei, not 0049..., example http://129.21.116.152:49973/seczones...5000012345.bin
    b. this file is your restored seczone, file size is 4096 bytes at time of writing.

    5. original geohotz gloader contain a bug which prevent it from work it was corrected by guest184 and simple proggy is generated to the personal gloader.
    a. cmd and change the dir to where you have saved the file you downlaoded.. "example: for me it was Ciphone\revirginizer"
    b. Then type "geomaker (your_imei).bin",
    c. You will receive "(Your_imei).bin_loader" - THAT IS YOURS LOADER.

    STEP 4
    Now time to restore seczone. further instructions situable only for fw ver 1.0.2.
    i assuming that you installed bsd subsystem and openssh packages.

    a. Connect to your Iphone (using winSCP)
    Code:
    IP Address: Check your current WiFi settings on your iPhone.
    (If you have trouble, try issuing a static IP.)
    Login Name: root
    Password: dottie
    Connection Type: SCP
    Port: 22
    Transfer all the file using Winscp on your iphone (better make some dir like /usr/u)
    314fls_correct,314secpack,eeprom.eep,
    bbupdater,iUnlock, (Your_IMEI).bin_loader (not .bin from server, but generated loader)
    Before pressing the Copy button, press More >> to reveal more options. Check the box next to "Set permissions" and make sure the textbox has this text:

    rwxr-xr-x
    You can also enter the Octal code of 0755

    b. Now connect to your Iphone (Using Putty )
    Quote:
    IP Address: Check your current WiFi settings on your iPhone.
    (If you have trouble, try issuing a static IP.)
    Login Name: root
    Password: dottie
    Connection Type: SCP
    Port: 22
    Then execute this command using Putty and rest of all the commands below:
    /bin/launchctl unload -w/System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist

    that will unload commcenter

    c. now execute:
    ./iUnlock 314secpack (Your_IMEI).bin_loader

    that will write seczone loader to phone.

    d. now execute:
    ./bbupdater -v

    You WILL GET ERROR "CAN'T PING TARGER", THAT IS NORMAL !!!! MOST IMPORTANT THAT SECLOADER ARE RUN AND RESTORED SECZONE

    e. to be sure, execute again ./bbupdater -v

    f. Finally, write patched firmware in phone by executing:

    ./iUnlock 314secpack 314fls_correct

    g. now execute:
    ./bbupdater -v

    it MUST show correct version !

    h. And finally, just to be sure:

    execute:
    ./bbupdater -e eeprom.eep

    that will write correct eeprom.

    i. now execute:
    /bin/launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist

    OR
    reboot your phone now - it is VIRGIN and UNLOCKED with gray's "ignore mnc/mcc" method (used in anysim11)


    Disclaimer:
    Your ltoken/seczone are being saved to this server.
    These could contain personal information.
    This is a test server, and will be taken down and have all the info deleted this Monday
    The source of the server will be released then.
