Thread: How was my Phone Unlocked ???
12-31-2007, 03:33 AM #1How was my Phone Unlocked ???
I have an unlocked Phone on 1.0.2, i purchased it unlocked, i would like to update the firmware to the latest one but the uncertainty of how it was unlocked puts me off.
Independance and iFuntastic all have warnings about how it was unlocked.
Product Version 1.0.2
Firmware Version iBoot-159
Build Version 1C28
Activation State Factory Activated
SSH Installed YES
Can anyone give me any reassurance about upgrading ??
TY in Advance

You have to virginize your baseband first there is a guide in the guides section.MyPhone is better than yours

there is no need to virginize it, just place the iphone in DFW mode and perform a software restore to 1.1.1 . the main firmware will be re-flashed and the new baseband modem firmware will be updated. then just jailbreakme.com and then use anysim 1.1.
edit: just realized if you upgrade to 1.1.1, from anysim or iunlock then your imei will get screwed up. so yes virginize.

Virginasion is required, as Firmware updates have detected modded baseband in past and semi-bricked phones trying to update. The virginizasion process takes under 10 minutes and you are safe to upgrade as you wish to current firmwares ( provided you follow steps required )

i had my iphone originally at 1.1.1 otb, i downgraded to 1.02 and baseband to 3.14.08 because i messed up the baseband firmware. i tried using anysim on 1.02 and it worked successfully. then i used iphonesimfree 1.6 and it said "already unlocked" so i "shift update" firmware to 1.1.1 and iphone said activate with itunes, i performed jailbreakme.com and as soon as the iphone restarted, the iphone was activated but sill locked to ATT, i then OKtoPrep and then "shift update" firmware to 1.1.2 then jailbroke 1.1.2 and the phone was unlocked and activated as soon as i restarted the iphone.
