    If your using an ATT sim you could upgrade using itunes.If you unlocked it, you would have to virginize the phone first.

    If it's not unlocked you can just use SHIFT+click RESTORE to restore to 1.1.1 (Restore erases old programs, that's why I'd use restore and not upgrade)

    How I did it (unlocked 1.0.2 to 1.1.1)

    Toolbox: http://qurl.net/redir/?http://rapids...enten.rar.html

    1: Install BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH via installer.

    2: See what your wifi ip is and remember it.

    3: Ok, install WinSCP on your computer.

    4: Open WinSCP, host-name= IP, Username= root, Password= dottie, protocol= SCP, druk nu op Login.
    Will take a while don't abort

    5: Connection, yay!

    6: Use the left screen (local computer) to find Virginizer_Pack, navigate on the phone to usr/bin and drag the virginizer_pack to the /usr/bin folder in het right menu.
    Will be a pop-up, click "More"click on permissions and set to 0755. now press "Copy"

    7: close WinSCP, and open Putty

    8: Hostname = ip-adres, click Open

    9: type: root <enter>
    type now: dottie <enter>

    11: Surf to http://code.google.com/p/iphone-elit...irginizingTool
    Follow the guide from "Change to the working directory" untill the END!

    12: All done ok = virginized iPhone.

    13: Download firmware File 1.1.1 Go to iTunes and take out your sim. Press <shift> when clicking RESTORE. When prompted navigate to your feshly downloaded 1.1.1

    14: All done ok = virgin UNactivated iphone.

    15: OpenCARNAVAL and open file "(click here)" Follow steps in program, it's really clear on what to do

    16: All done ok= activated 1.1.1 iphone!

    17: CARNAVAL installed Installer. Install the update, and install BSD SubSystem and OpenSSH.

    18: Open WinSCP make connection like before. new password= alpine

    19: drag "Anysim.app" to "Applications" folder on iPhone. 0755 CHMOD!! Restart iphone with sim in it

    20: Open Anysim and run.

    21: when Anysim is done, you can remove Anysim.app with winscp

    22: all done
