Thread: AnySim Error/Fail Unlock
12-19-2007, 10:43 AM #1AnySim Error/Fail Unlock
Ok, I have searched the forum for this resolve before I posted but was unable to find the fix stated clearly.
Either way, I've done the downgrade method, then OktoPrep, then Upgrade, then AnySim 1.2.1u.. Received, "anySim Cannot unlock this iPhone, anySIM will now quit. Please turn off you phone and tun it on again after anySIM quits." Also receive a quick secpack error, which is covered up by the above error. I've done this a few times, and tried again, same error.
Figuring this maybe be an issue with 1.1.2, i decided to downgrade back to 1.1.1, and anySIM 1.1, I recieve the same error with anySIM 1.1 also.
I have BSDSub, SSH, installed, and the phone is Jailbrokened. I for the life of me cannot figure out what the issue is, or which step ive missed.
Either way, any help would be a appreciated as Ive spent a good 6 hours on the issue without a resolve.

did you put the phone in airplane mode before running anysim1.2.1u on 1.1.2? i think you've gotta do that..

Yep, I followed the in-house guide to the T, exactly as it was documented.

Might be an OTB 1.1.2, which is unlockable at the moment. Even if you downgrade it to 1.1.1.

Nope this isnt a OTB 1.1.2, I purchased this (waited in line) the first day it was released.

Did you already unlock it because me and a guy were trying to figure out why his tmobile sim wasnt working after we unlocked it and ran it again and it said that

Great point Chris, Yes I had the iPhone unlocked in 1.1.1 w/anySIM 1.1... then one of my clients wanted to borrow the phone for awhile, not wanting them to mess anything up with "Installer" I clean restored it to 1.1.2, wiping all "mod" appz away, essentially a fresh iPhone. Upon return of the iPhone I was not able to use my T-Mobile sim anymore, thus tried the in-house guides.
Which as you can see above have failed, and I've yet to figure out why. Did it have something to do with unlocking before? That being said, why didn't it stay unlocked?

Yep, I've tried that via -> http://www.modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18096
But when running the Baseband Downgrader i get "Main script execution failed!" error...
My current Firmware is 04.02.13_G
12-19-2007, 12:39 PM #10
i think what happend to me was it gave me that error and then there was no firmware on the baseband (WI-FI greyed out) and then i restored to 1.02 and then up to 1.1 but let me know if u figure it out

Ok well, I again restored to 1.1.1, fresh 1.1.1 and was able to do the BB downgrade.. Restored 1.1.1 again, per instructions, and activated, AppTapp'd, and running anySIM 1.1. I dont plan on upgrading to 1.1.2... until whatever issue that is happening has been resolved. I'll update when anySIM completes, see if it worked or not.
Big thanks to whomever runs this site -> http://iphone.unlock.no/#Unlock-the-SIM-lock
anySIM 1.1 worked, on 1.1.1, T-Mobile up and running.. Now I just need to fix the EDGE settings to work with T-Mobile.
Thanks for the help guys!
