Otb 1.1.2/1.1.3 Jailbreak Activation Unlock TutorialOTB 1.1.2/1.1.3 JAILBREAK,ACTIVATION,UNLOCKBlazingANgel1986
Firstly the iphone used in this tutorial is an otb 1.1.2 running modem firmware 04.02.13_G but rest easy for those running otb 1.1.3 or that accidently updated there phones to 1.1.3 and ended up with modem firmware 04.03.13_G i can assure this guide will work for you none the less.
Ok first if your phone has already been jailbroken from 1.1.2 and you upgraded to 1.1.3 using the devs installer method u may want to restore your phone to 1.1.2 using the recovery method, you can do this simply by connecting your iphone to your pc and make sure that itunes is running I used the below version
1. First you want to downgrade your phone to firmware version 1.1.1 first off make sure that your phone is connected via its usb cable and that itunes is running once this has been done you want to put your phone into recovery mode, This is done by holding both the power button and the home button on your phone at the same time for however long it takes untill your phone displays only the image of the iphone cable and itunes icon as shown below
Itunes will then say that it detects an iphone in recovery mode after clicking on ok you would then want to hold the shift key and then click restore (while still holding shift) this then allows you to select the iphone firmware version 1.1.1 to downgrade your phone from 1.1.2 to 1.1.1, after this is done you get error 1015
this is quite normal that means you would have succesfully downgraded to iphone firmware version 1.1.1
**note if you don’t already have firmware version 1.1.1 you can download it from apple at this linkhere
Ok now that that’s done your probally wondering why your phones still sitting in recovery mode that’s because it needs to be booted out of recovery mode no need to worry ibrickr created by nate true dose this job quite fine you can download I brickr fromhere so once you have fired up irbickr.exe it will detect the phone in recovery mode and automatically ask you if to boot the phone as shown below
Now as ibrickr will tell you I will be sure to tell you the same your phones background may change to a red back ground this is normal it means its booting up quite fine but if it comes up green you did something wrong and should retrace your steps so turn your phone off and on and try restoring back to 1.1.2 and then downgraded back to 1.1.1 (you can get 1.1.2here)
Now that your phones been downgraded u want to run that slider to the right that says slide for emergency now you want to dial *#307# and then hit call, that’s right your phones ringing or rather should be now you want to delete all the digits you typed in by hitting that arrow in the upper right corner with the x and then dialing 0 and call then press answer and then hold and finally decline.
A new window comes up and you want to click on contacts now you want to add a contact now you don’t have to add a name you can if you want but its not really necessary but you do wanna hit add new URL and add the following prefs:// and press save and hit add new url again adding www.jailbreakme.com and save again after confirming that both links are there press save again.
You can then click on the prefs url wich will take you into the phones settings menu here u would want to enable ur wifi and make sure your connected and then go into genral>auto-lock>never then press the home button.
This brings you back to actiate iphone screen same scenario sliding the slider to the right and this time dialing 0 and call then press answer and then hold and finally decline u would want to go back to your contacts and pulling up the contact that you created and pressing that www.jailbreakme.com url wich then fires up safari and pulls up appsnapp insaller for 1.1.1 would want to schrolll strait down to the bottom and click on install appsnapp safari would then crash don’t get scared and your phone will restart and guess what you succesfully jailbroken and activated your phone with the installer app present
, now you would wanna fire up installer and browse firstly for the BSD Subsystem (unix tools for the iphone) this is needed for the unlock to work.
Then you would want to browse for and install and run 1.1.2-1.1.3 OTB G-Unlock takes about 3-5 min
Congrats the phones unlocked for sim use but you’re a ways to go also please don’t take out yout at&t sim ive been getting major errors by taking this out b4 the entire proccess is done
Returning back to installer you need browse for and install OktoPrep but if for some unknown reason you don’t see this look for a package called Community Sources and look again you will find it
Ok now we want to upgrade out phones back to 1.1.2 by firing up itunes and clicking on update using the shift method (holding down on shift while clicking update) wich allows you select wich update you want because 1.1.3 is out and who knows maybe 1.1.4 or 1.1.5 by the time apples done being pissed with us but you wanna download if you don’t already have firmware version 1.1.2 from apples website the link can be found here after wich using the shift method select the 1.1.2 firmware and let it run
Your prob wondering why did I do this my phones locked up again wrong lol download the 1.1.2 jailbreak software from the guys at coceited software found here make sure you have java instaled on your system unzip and run the jailbreak java app
and its as easy as that click on jail break and let It run your phone will restart a few times but afterwich u have a fully functional 1.1.2 04.02.13_G Iphone but your not quite done you have one last final step that takes time on your phones part so once you runn this last part u may wanna get a cup of coffe and watch some tv or something come back in 30 min or so lol
finally going back to the installer app u wanna browse for and download Offical 1.1.3 upgrader this is all thanks to the dev, when its downloading u wanna run it from the spingboard answer yest to everything and kick back and watch tv or get some cofffe because this will take a while but when its done you will have a fully unlocked iphone running firmware version 1.1.3
