    Default NEW GUIDE: Jailbreaking a 1.1.1 locked AT&T iPhone
    I have written up this quick guide to clear up some confusion. Many people with locked 1.1.1 iPhones on AT&T have had the misconception that they must downgrade to 1.0.2 and virginize their phones and then jailbreak up to 1.1.1.

    This is not the case. If you have a locked AT&T iPhone running 1.1.1 firmware you can just use iJailbreak for iPhone to jailbreak. Although this is extremely easy to do I have made a quick guide Here is the guide. Sorry windows users, this is OS X only. As soon as someone buys me a nice PC I'll write some windows guides .

    I hope this clears up any confusion and those with locked 1.1.1 AT&T iPhones don't go through unnecessary steps.

    Sweet, man. This is awesome, I know there are sites out there for windows, and you could always bite the bullet and use the untested iDemocracy or CARNAVAL.

    if you unlocked your phone with anything other than iphonesimfree you have to virginize.

    One more clarification needed...

    Can I use this iJailbreak method, if I have:
    - 1.0.2 previously unlocked by unlock.app
    - then revirginized, and upgraded to 1.1.1, and
    - finally 'restored' by iTune again (also 1.1.1)

    Thanks in advance

    Oh sweet. I don't spend much time on these forums anymore so I didn't know I didn't have to downgrade anymore. Thanks a lot!

    as long as it was completely virginized before the 1.1.1 upgrade it should work

    this was intended for those activated through at&t. somewhere in this new section is a method to use safari on a unactivated phone

    edit yes you can source

    1. Slide to reach the emergency dial screen
    2. enter *#307# and then press call
    3. Your phone will ring itself, press answer
    4. Press hold now and your phone will start ringing again
    5. Press Dismiss and your phone will go into the contacts/dial screen
    6. Press contacts from the bottom bar and add a contact (Give it any name and a random URL, www.google.com is a good choice)
    7. Now save your contact and then click on the URL, safari will open and say it cannot load the site. press ok
    8. This is the crucial part Now press the home button and be ready to really quicky select your wifi network. As soon as you press the home button a small box will come up asking for a network. Choose your network (has to be open network) and if you did it right you will see a wifi signal on top of the iphone.
    8a. Leave your phone like that now for a minute or two. Then shut down your iphone and restart.
    8b. After the iPhone restarts it should have the Wifi icon showing at the top…if it does not do steps 1 - 8 again. (This is normal, took me 5 tries to get the Wifi)
    9. Once the wifi is working, do steps 1 - 5 again.
    9a. For the next step add another contact give it another name and this time add the address as >> http://jailbreak.toc2rta.com/
    10. Save the contact and then go to the 2nd url you just saved. Safari will load the page and then close automatically to the home screen (the screen that says activate iphone).

    so this means I can simply upgrade my locked 1.0.2 iPhone to 1.1.1 using iTunes, then use the ijailbreak method?
