    youll have to restore it back to 1.1.1, run oktoprep and unlock it with anySIM1.2 then update it to 1.1.2 and jailbreak it

    when you say restore, do you just mean restore using itunes and option+restore to select 1.1.1?
    I thought that wouldn't work to do the unlock after b/c 1.1.2 has a different baseband?

    There is no way to unlock and out of the box 1.1.2. The only thing you can do is jailbreak it.

    Downgrading and unlocking will not work since the out of the box 1.1.2 have a different boot loader.

    is there anyone who has a US version 1.1.2 who has downgraded and unlocked that can confirm?

    my friend is only here for the afternoon,
    so I won't have time to fix it if it doesn't work...

    then dont risk it.

    If they have a currently working phone, its not worth the risk from what you gain if im being honest

    I definitely won't risk it until I can get more information,
    but he doesn't have a working phone b/c we're in Canada.

    Obviously he wants to wait as little time as possible,
    just trying to help him out.

    I could be wrong but from my understanding is the OTB 1.1.2 US do have the new bootloader and can't be unlocked, because you can't downgrade the bootloader. You can downgrade the firmware all you want but without being able to downgrade bootloader, anysim will never work on it.

    You can however downgrade 1.1.2 that have old v3 bootloader, unlock them and then upgrade to back to 1.1.2.

    but anysim 1.2 will unlock with the US bootloader...just not the UK as its a different bootloader.

    Thats what ive understood? It doesnt really apply to me, so in the nicest possible way, I don't really care so much lol

    I think you'll find the bootloader has been changed world wide, inc. the US

    We're All Doomed!!!

    US phones have the new baseband also, and cannot be unlocked yet.

    Anysim 1.2 will not unlock OTB 1.1.2.period. There is no way to unlock a 1.1.2 OTB US or UK phone.

    The only thing you can do is JailBreak it.

    Don't try unlocking an OTB 1.1.2. You might damage the phone if you use anySIM 1.2
    I have already tried twice and I had to spend 4 hours on each phone to Re-Virginize.

    So far I got OTB 1.1.2 donwgraded to 1.1.1 unlocked it ran OKtoprep upgraded it to 1.1.2 and it gave me invalid sim for me tmobile...

    Next method is to leave it unlocked in 1.1.1 and se if it stays unlocked.... who knows if that will work?

    you haven't unlocked an OTB 1.1.2. maybe you have jail broken it but not unlocked it, its not possible yet.
