    Default [HOW-TO]: Jailbreak an Out of the Box 1.1.2 Firmware iPhone (AKA euro iPhone)
    EDIT: THIS NOW WORKS WITH ANY O2/AT&T/BASE PROVIDER SIM!! You can use any O2 sim with this method

    Editing Again: I've added details to get the voicemail link working in "phone" application. However, this will not allow visual voicemail, just gives you a handy link to your voicemail
    Hi there. Because I'm lazy, most of this is copied from jailbreakme.com I'll leave credit where credit is due.

    If you think this could be made simpler, which I'm sure it could be. Just drop a comment and I'll alter where it's needed. I'm online all day.

    Note that an unlock has NOT BEEN DEVELOPED YET. Do NOT USE anySim 1.2 as it we europeans have a new bootloader.

    The bootloader is exploited in order to unlock the sim. Ours differs from the Americans' which has already been exploited. Just wait for a few days and I'm sure the dev team or someone will come out with one.


    Things you'll need:
    An iPhone
    Working WiFi connection
    -----> Jailbreak-1.1.2 by conceited software available from here. Hats off to them.
    -----> 1.1.1 restore firmware, available from here
    An FTP client capable of SFTP (details given later)
    iTunes (any version > 7.3 should be fine)
    About 15-20 minutes of your time





    This section is copied from www.jailbreakme.com/1.1.2

    so it's quite reputable :
    MAKE SURE YOU INSTALL SSH (Check the box in the jailbreak section) AS IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE NEXT STEP.
    1.1.2 Jailbreak

    **** NOTE: This method currently requires you be on 1.1.1 of the firmware. If you are on 1.1.2
    you must downgrade prior to being able to use this jailbreak. ****

    **** NOTE: PLEASE NOTE THIS METHOD ONLY WORKS ON ITUNES ACTIVATED PHONES OR IPOD TOUCHES ****


    Step 1: Downgrade to 1.1.1 (if required)
    *** NOTE: This guide does not guarantee it will work 100%. Also errors 1015 is expected at
    the end of the process. Continue reading to understand. ***

    1. Download the 1.1.1 ipsw firmware file from Apple. If the downloaded file has the extension
    ".zip", please remove it and modify it to end up with a filename ending in _Restore.ipsw

    2. Reboot your iPhone holding the top (power) and home buttons BUT release the top button 10
    seconds into it (right after the screen goes dark) and continue to hold the home button until
    iTunes detects the phone in recovery mode. The iPhone screen will appear to be off, but start
    iTunes if not started yet .

    3. Restore your iPhone by pressing and holding the ‘Shift’ key on windows or ‘option’ key on Mac,
    then click ‘restore’ to select the 1.1.1 firmware file you downloaded earlier. The restore should
    go through and errors at the end with error 1015. However you will notice that the iphone is in
    DFU mode with the connect to itunes screen from 1.1.1.

    4. In order to kick the phone out of that mode I just had to launch iNdependence version 1.2.5
    and wait a minute or so. If you are using iTunes 7.5 you will have to get a MobileDevice from a
    previousv version in order to run Independence.
    If you are running windows. Simply download iBrickr from www.ibrickr.com and run it, it will say something along the lines of "reboot iPhone". However, I wouldn't know, because it keeps crashing on me *grumble grumble*

    If you are unlucky enough to be running vista, it almost definately will crash... alot. In fact, the only way to get it not to crash is to restart your computer and run iBrickr. Subsequent attempts before a restart will crash the program again.

    If iBrickr still doesn't work, you'll have to get iPhuc from somewhere. I got it from iDemocracy by chance, so I'll lead you there. Also, I'll lead you there because in a few days, they'll have automated this process making this all completely redundant.

    http://code.google.com/p/idemocracy/

    just download idemocracy and there should be a program called "iphuc-jailbreak.exe" or something.

    In iPhuc, type these commands:

    cmd setenv auto-boot true

    then

    cmd saveenv

    cmd fsboot

    and it should reboot. Although, I recommend running iBrickr as each time you reboot, you'll need to keep typing in those commands.

    Next:
    Step 2a: Jailbreak 1.1.1 on Unactivated iPhone
    *** NOTE: If your phone has been activated through iTunes, you can proceed to step 2b. ***

    1. enter *#307# press call, now use the back button on the top of your screen to remove *#307# ,
    now enter 0 , press call, press answer, press hold, press decline. And you get to the contact
    list. And thereafter every time you push the homebutton you just slide the "emergency call"
    slide, then enter 0 , press call, press hold, press decline.

    2. Push contacts, end call and you get called again, this time hit decline and you access one of
    menus with favorites, you can edit contacts, do a test ride on keyboard, take photos etc.

    3. Now edit a new contact and type in "prefs://11" as web-address and "http://jailbreakme.com" as
    an additional URL.

    4. When you tap "prefs://11" you can now select your favorite WiFi gateway.

    5. Now press the home button and move the slider to the dial-pad.

    6. Now you can go back to the contact list by Dialing 0, push call, then answer, then contacts,
    then hit the "http://jailbreakme.com" web address you typed in.

    7. Scroll down to the bottom, click "Install AppSnapp". Safari will exit and you'll return to your
    springboard. Wait for the phone to reboot. You are now jailbroken. and are able to use
    Installer.app.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 2b: Jailbreaking on iPod Touch or iTunes Activated iPhone

    1. Launch Safari

    2. Visit http://jailbreakme.com, Scroll down to the bottom, click "Install AppSnapp". Safari will
    exit and you'll return to your springboard. Slide to unlock, you are now jailbroken. and are
    able to use Installer.app.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 3: Prepare your 1.1.1 device for the Update

    1. Launch Installer.app

    2. Scroll down to Tweaks (1.1.1)

    3. Select OktoPrep

    4. Click Install

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step 4: Update to 1.1.2

    1. Connect your device to your computer

    2. Launch iTunes

    3. Choose your device

    4. Click Update

    5. Wait forever for your device to update
    For step 4, when updating. If you get an annoying message saying that 1.1.1 is the latest version, download the 1.1.2 firmware from

    here

    Then press the shift key and click "check for updates" or "upgrade/update" depending on what you have (I think it's the option key and click on Macs).

    A box should pop up, navigate to where you downloaded the 1.1.2 restore file, making sure it ends with _Restore.ipsw. Then open it.
    (has the ipsw file extension)

    Step 5: Jailbreak your iPod Touch or iTunes activated iPhone

    1. Close iTunes

    2. Connect your device to your computer

    3. On Windows, double click on windows.bat, on Mac, double click on osx

    4. Follow the on screen instructions.
    This section may be a tad ambiguous. Firstly, unzip the jailbreak-1.1.2 zip file I told you to download eariler. Using Winzip or WinRAR or whatever you like.

    Then there should be a file in there called windows.bat or run file called osx if you are on a Mac.

    WARNING: If you are running osx, make sure you have libreadline which can be accessed here. Just extract the whole directory to your hard drive and it should work then.

    On Windows, you need Java, which can be googled very easily. (I havn't run it on mac, but I'm assuming you'll probably need the same).




    Only use the next section if you have not activated your iPhone through iTunes.




    Ok, at this point you should be at the activation screen you started off with riiight at the beginning. When you were young and all your favourite shows were on tv. With a vital difference, you now have a jailbroken phone and you can modify its filesystem.

    To get around this you need something called a "modified lockdownd" file. This will bypass the activation screen. First, download this here

    (Shamelessly ripped from hackint0sh)

    Now we can use ANY O2 SIM with this special lockdownd file courtesy of Callx! THANK YOU!:
    http://rapidshare.com/files/69520380...ownd_1_1_2.zip

    (Taken from http://modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15752&page=3)

    Now, if you enabled SSH like I told you to and can remember the password. Open up an FTP client that can handle SFTP. Two freeware ones I can recommend are:

    Filezilla

    and

    WinSCP

    just google them, they're pretty easy to find.

    Now, go into the FTP client and type in the IP address of the iPhone, which should be in prefs: (back in the contacts menu) You can get to this using the methods outlined in step 2.

    Go to wireless settings and touch the little blue arrow on the right which will display the IP settings.

    Paste it into whatever FTP client you are using. In WinSCP you select the SFTP protocol and in Filezilla, make sure the port is 22.

    If you used the defaults then the username is root and the password is alpine.

    Once logged in, go to the base directory, (/). Then, go to user and the libexec.

    I recommend backing up the lockdownd file (copy to hard drive and rename lockdownd-Backup or similar).

    Then, copy the modded lockdownd provided to that directory, overwriting. Then, change permissions so that the file has permissions 755. In WinSCP you should be able to go to file properties and type in 0755 and in Filezilla it should be 755 in file attributes.

    Then, reboot (hold sleep button for 5 seconds and slide to power down) and it should work!


    EDGE settings:

    If you are on an O2 contract (untested with PAYG) then use this for EDGE settings (Settings->General->Network->EDGE):

    APN: mobile.o2.co.uk
    username: faster
    password: web

    Voicemail hack:
    Firstly, you need BSD subsystem. This can be installed using the installer application. It is in the "System" subfolder.

    Allow this to install (could take some time).

    Now, SSH into your iPhone, a recommended program to do this is PuTTY (google it).

    Now, inside putty, you'll have to log in, if you installed SSH as instructed before, then your default password will be "alpine".

    once logged in, just copy and paste these commands in:

    rm /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.carrier.plist

    ln -s /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support/O2_UK.plist /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.carrier.plist

    rm -f /var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist

    one after another.

    Now reboot, and you should be able to click your way to voicemail .

    So , did you use Ibrickr or the IPHUC?

    In Iphuc do you have the type the commands after every reboot? Which one did you use?

    And what the "quick now" scheme your talking about? Wouldn't everyone choose that?

    I have used both.

    When you use IPhuc, it is a temporary solution (in MOST cases). In other words, every time your iPhone is rebooted, you need to type in those commands to iPhuc.

    The quick now scheme is just a term I used if you are using Vista and iBrickr keeps crashing, I'll remove now.

    in the sense that it saves a lot of time. But if you're on vista, it's a major headache.

    Nope, you'll have to start all over again at 1.1.1

    Unfortunately not. That pretty much exactly what I've been trying to do for the past 4 days.

    From what I gather, in 1.0.2, you actually activate the SIM (you get a window that pops up saying activating).

    However, in the later editions (1.1.1 onwards) people seem to be bypassing activation altogether by using cracked lockdownd files.

    So what we need is an activation process for 1.1.2/1.1.1 which I have no idea how do get.

    hey Dilinator,

    your "howto" really helped me so hopefuly this will help you, I got my pay and go o2 sim working on 1.1.2 using a different modified lockdownd with your "How To".

    Credit goes to Callx for modifying the file

    http://rapidshare.com/files/69520380...ownd_1_1_2.zip

    confirmed o2 pay as you go on a jailbreaked OTB 1.1.2 using this How To and extra patched file above

    Could you show me the link as to where you got that file from initially?

    This would make sense if it is the 1.0.2 lockdownd file.

    If that is the case, then a good link is here:

    http://rdgaccess.com/iphone-elite/vi...t=207&start=15

    Where this guy found it.

    Warning though, it involves lots of commands and sshing to get it working.

    In my opinion. Wait 3 days, if no official unlock has been released, go for this.

    Got his LockDownd from this thread:

    http://modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15752

    UPDATE: This method used a *coughs modified modified lockdownd 1.1.1 (no typo error here ) It worked fine but didn't feel that "neat" so yea, I looked at what the iphone-elite team did and patched a 1.1.2 lockdownd. It works on mine. Anyone else wanna try that for me? I'll update the guide accordingly after you guys confirm it works

    Thanks so much dej4y! Worked perfectly!

    I have updated this tutorial to include the lockdownd file and my EDGE settings.

    Can we get this stickied or something? I'm tired of seeing the same questions over and over again .

    EDIT: Added voicemail link hack.

    So... Are there any incompatibilities in terms of apps on 1.1.2 from 1.1.1? When I get my iPhone, I'm wondering if I should just downgrade to 1.1.1 or jailbreak it on 1.1.2... Any suggestions? Thanks

    The reason I was wondering is because that I heard some apps don't work. Any clarification would be nice. Thanks

    You say brand new out of the box does this mean the iPhone hasn't been activated to the o2 contract? I really need to get mine unlocked soon.

    Thanks to everyone who contributed to this fix!

    I now have 1.1.2 iPhone with O2 Pay&Go, working!

    I think 10-20 minutes is unrealistic however - the 1.1.2 Jailbreak takes that long on its own!

    Glad to see work is being done to make euro iphones work! This method is perfect.

    Just one thing - I got voicemail working a different way that is less risky and easier, can be done direct from the phone:

    Just type in *5005*86*yourvoicemailphonenumber# then press call. So for O2 it is:

    *5005*86*901# CALL

    Now the voicemail button calls voicemail! No files deleted!

    Ah yes, this needs to be explained - I read this somewhere:

    On OS X, open Terminal, type cd followed by the folder location that the jailbreak is in

    So I typed: cd /Users/Josh/Desktop/Jailbreak then press return

    Now type ./osx and it should run! You will now be able to jailbreak 1.1.2!

    Hope that helps!
