ok all done. unlocked with 1.1.1 on there!
10-24-2007, 11:00 AM #83
my phone bricked after 2 hours use on 1.1.1 following this guide.
I don't think it has anything to do with poetic folly's guide though.
I trust him 100%.
To rectify I followed the downgrade guide
worked a treat, do exactly as it says.

I am stuck in the Terminal... After typing pasword as dottie, I get
-sh-3.2# (not just # sign) and will not let me type more than 3 letters and closed my cnnection.
Tried to uninstall Open SSD from Installer and reinstall Open SSD.
Cannot reinstall BSD from installer: Package download failed: can't connect host
EDIT: Use INdependence, remove SSD, install SSD, go back to installer and reload BSD.
after that run terminal and # sign will come out.

Finally got back to 1.1.1 after i downgraded to 1.0.2 and then used the instructions on the independence help tab.
Many thanks for all of your work Poetic Folly,and quick responses! One thing though,why did the phone kick back to the at&t unsupported sim page when i attached to itunes? It just seemed a little weird that it went from ok to locked in the time it took to re-attach phone to laptop.The only thing i was running at the time was the apptap download,would this have done anything???
Curious to have some feedback.
Also in the virginizer steps,i never did get the file seczone.backup in either the user/bin file or in cyberduck but still managed to complete the steps and get everything working.Would this make a difference and cause any glitches?

You are typing the command wrong. That's the letter "L" not the number "1".
The command is:
ssh -L root 192.168.x.xxx
It's a lower case L though. I just capitalized it for emphasis.
I had the same error. I was typing 1 until I looked closer at the guide and saw it was an L.

Thanks for the guide, PF!
But I'm curious about the final unlocking stage. I see that the iPhone-elite team is still working on a "true" unlock for 1.1.1. Does this mean to suggest that the current version of anySIM 1.1 will unlock a 1.1.1 iPhone for now ... but that we might run into more of the same problems (e.g., baseband downgrades, re-virginizing) with Apple's next firmware upgrade?
(Basically, I've not been able to find any info on what anySIM actually does in the new version. Is it just being destructive to the seczone like the previous version?)
Thanks in advance for any clarity that someone can provide me...

Am I missing something?
I have a fresh out of the box 1.1.1 iPhone and I want to unlock it.
Can I simply follow the following two guides to achieve this?
Preparing the 1.1.1 iPhone for Unlock/Modding
Unlocking 1.1.1 iPhone
Or do I actually have to downgrade, virginize, upgrade, prepare for unlock and then finally unlock?
Can't I just use the two aforementioned guides?
Also, what precautions do I have to follow regarding my sim card during all these steps? Do I keep the AT&T card in the whole time? Or do I put in my carrier's sim card?
Thank you very much for all your hard work and any help!

Edit: Ok, so I reinstalled and ran iUnlock and went through that whole set up and now my phone seems to be working except for it occasionally gives me a message of "No Sim" and I have to take out my card and put it back it. Any suggestions on how to fix this and/or update to 1.1.1.???

Is there any guide how to get apptap going on the 1.1.1 unlocked?
This is a great tutorial works perfect for me. Thanks to the iPhone community and the author of this guide, YOU GUYS RULE.
Wired but I did not even had to unlock the phone it worked fine with my old cingular sim, no idea y. =)

I had the "FW Mismatch" forget the exact error and "Unable to download .FLS" error and was able to fix it. I ran Ieraser and erased the firmware then did a bbupdated to flash the firmware. Finaly ran through the guide and all is well now. Just thought this may come in handy for some with my same errors.

This is exactly what I did...it's really easy.
pf edit: here's an MMi mirror.
1. Install BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH via Installer or iBrickr
2. Extract the virginizer_pack folder from the zip file.
Extract the virginator_10 folder from the zip file.
Extract virginizer.sh from the virginator_10 directory and place in the virginizer_pack folder.
3. Connect to your WIFI, take note of your phone’s IP address (Settings-WIFI-Tap your network for the infro).
SSH into your phone via WinSCP.
Host is your phone’s IP iddress, user name is: root, password is: dottie. File protocol is SCP.
4. It’ll take a little bit to load up. You might get a prompt asking you to abort since it’s been 15 seconds, just ignore that and let it do it’s thing. You should now be in the phone, with the files on your computer on the left, and the iPhone’s directories on the right.
5. Navigate to the beginning of the tree and navigate to this folder: usr/bin
6. Drag the virginizer_pack folder from your computer (left window of winscp) to the /bin folder on the iphone.
Make sure the virginizer_pack folder and its files have their permissions set at 0755. (Either hit F9 to change it, or right click the folder and click on properties).
7. Now, log into your phone via putty. Your phone’s same ipaddress, and the user is: root, password is: dottie.
8. Navigate to the virginizer_pack folder by typing in:
9. Give virginizer.sh permission to execute by typing in:
chmod +x virginator.sh
10. Execute virginizer.sh by typing in:
11. Follow all the prompts from here on and it’s all automated!!!
The hardest part is just figuring out WinSCP and Putty. After that it really is not complicated at all. My phone was virginized, I updated to 1.1.1 via iTunes. Activated, jailbroke, and unlocked successfully!

I have put on installer.app on my phone but when I go and update it installer to the newest version 3.0b4 the file size is 0 bytes.
I have reinstalled the BSD Subsystem already.
Also when trying to remove some of the old apps it gives me some script error.
