Amazing such a great tutorial. Even complete noobs like myself should have no problem at all. Note - if App Tapp hangs up during the software transfer phase, just undock your iPhone and replace it and the software should kick back in.

Great tutorial-Excellent work congrats to developer and author if not the same- Hope that its working for the fellow posters who are doing that now-has the long wait done something-
My iphones arriving <monday-just one question: in part 4 what are we supposed to do with lockdownd-execute it? What is meant by "Replace lockdownd with the original file and install it before continuing." What original file? on the iphone? what directory? http://www.modmyi.com/forums/images/...s/confused.gif
Thanks very much and good luck!

Like I said in the tutorial...
Now, open up /usr/libexec, and drag the lockdownd file you downloaded in the beginning of this part of the tutorial into it.
09-14-2007, 02:59 AM #8iPhone super duper mega slow after unlock
I followed all the instructions for unlocking my iPhone and it was successful!!
Unfortunately the phone is essentially unusable because it runs so slowly. I noticed it after installing ssh and the new lockdownd tools first, but thought it might go away after unlock.
I even removed unlock and then OpenSSH (I thought maybe a daemon was bogging me down) to no avail.
I've already restored and done the whole thing again twice. After lockdownd the iPhone just crawls (like 30 - 60 seconds per touch).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

Great guide, helped me unlock my phone so I can use it with Tmobile but just wondering is there any way to get youtube to work now that I have my unlocked iphone but I would really love to get youtube on my phone, thanks in advance.
09-14-2007, 03:27 AM #10ssh issues
i don't know what I did, but, ssh login isn't working for me I changed the passworrd from dottie to something else. Can anyone tell me how to reset it?
From Cyberduck I get a I/O error: Connection Failed.
I can't evn use independence app anymore. It can find my IP
Please help me.......

i'm confused about this part
--In order for this to work you must change the file permissions on the Unlock.app. ssh into your phone:
chmod -R 0777 Unlock.app
how do i change the permission of the unlock.app ??
is it through Cyberduck ?? how to do it ??
btw what's the "bsd" in the warning ??
--Warning-- If you have not installed the BSD tools, your iPone will not function. Replace lockdownd with the original file and install it before continuing.
09-14-2007, 08:09 AM #12Great Tutorial, but there are two confusing points:
1.--Warning-- If you have not installed the BSD tools, your iPone will not function. Replace lockdownd with the original file and install it before continuing.
2.--In order for this to work you must change the file permissions on the Unlock.app. ssh into your phone:
chmod -R 0777 Unlock.app
Please clarify... .
and congrats on a super nice tutorial, what attracted me to it and made me give it a try was the level of detail with screenshots and downloadable files from within the tutorial.. again thanks. I'm just sorry I could not figure out the two points above.
09-14-2007, 11:42 AM #13
Those are the two exact steps that I'm confused with...
09-14-2007, 11:53 AM #14
I did not add those, someone edited the Wiki. Those steps are not necessary, as CyberDuck already sets those permissions. Refresh the guide, it has been updated to be how I originally intended it.
09-14-2007, 11:57 AM #15
Thank you for the reply. I actually was just about to tell that it worked for me without those steps! Thanks! And thanks again for the amazing instructions!
09-14-2007, 12:19 PM #16How do I activate with AT&T after unlocking?
I will be attempting to unlock my iPhone and use with T-mobile for a few weeks. After that, how do I activate with AT&T? Do I just connect with iTunes and the activate with ATT message will come up?
09-14-2007, 12:20 PM #17
Do you already have ATT?
09-14-2007, 02:45 PM #18
No, I don't. I plan to sign up with ATT in a couple of weeks. In the mean time I will use my existing tmobile.
09-14-2007, 02:46 PM #19Using T-Zones w/ iPhone
I've used the Unlock.app method to unlock my iPhone for use w/ T-mobile while I was waiting for my TurboSIM to show up. Both methods work(ed) fine. But now that I have my TurboSIM I don't have to worry about Apple software updates.
In either method to get T-zones to work all I had to do was go to Settings>General>Edge delete the AT&T entries in the APN, Username, and Password fields then enter wap.voicestream.com in the APN field. T-zones works without any other hacks. You don't need any username or password. Leave those fields blank.
Now this may not work for everyone ... but it's a good first place to start before having to hack anything else.
09-14-2007, 02:55 PM #20
T-Zones works for you? You can do all the Safari, Mail, Maps, etc with just the $5.99 plan?
