Thread: New iPhone-- Best way to upgrade then unlock

    Default New iPhone-- Best way to upgrade then unlock
    Hello everyone,
    I finally got an iPhone today (1st generation obviously). I would like to unlock it and use it with T-Mobile, but I'm pretty sure it's not version 1.1.14. What's the best way to unlock/activate the phone, then update the firmware, and then unlock it yet again? Or do you not need to unlock the phone again...? I know iLiberty is preferred over ZiPhone because of the boot loader, however, what steps should I take to update my iPhone to 1.1.14 and then unlock it? Or am I wrong all together... Can I just unlock my new iPhone and then update? The problem is, I'm afraid of 'bricking my new phone'
    Thanks
    Matt

    Sorry for double posting mods-- wasn't sure which category was appropriate.

    Just plug it into iTunes and click on upgrade since you have never used it.

    Or you might need to put it into DFU mode and click on restore.

    Either way should be fine.

    After that just use iLiberty or winpwn.

    Update isn't an option at this point. A screen comes onto iTunes asking me to register.

    What do I do...?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Nevermind-- I found instructions here (* How to put iPhone in DFU mode easily*—*winandmac.com) on how to put the phone into recovery mode...

    Which do you recommend winpwn or iLiberty? Thanks

    I plan on using winpwn, but it shouldn't really matter.

    iLiberty is very buggy, it doesn't always jailbreak properly and iDemocracy has problems too such as the app crashing.
