    Feels like Im close now but I have no idea what to do now... I get the message above when typing minicom -s

    Please help me out.
    Download this.

    SSH/PuTTy/FuGu into your phone.

    Go to your /usr directory. Create a directory called local. Navigate to that and create a directory called etc

    In the /usr/local/etc directory you just created, put the termcap file from that link I put.

    EDIT: poetic, you might wanna throw this in the guide or something for those that may not have tried the hardware unlock and don't have/know what termcap is. even with minicom -s'ing it'll kick back the no termcap error.

    ok, I put the termacap file in usr/local/etc/

    ssh -l root 10.0.1.12
    [email protected]'s password:
    -sh-3.2# minicom -s
    No termcap database present!
    -sh-3.2#

    still no termacap database preent?

  3. #103
    Try putting it in just the /etc directory.

    When you SSH in after that, you may get a string of messages before your prompt, but continue on if you do.

    Thank you Rayne, it feels like Im getting closer and closer....

    I did what you said and now I get this:

    Port /dev/tty.baseband

    Press CTRL-A Z for help on special keys

    Are you still running "minicom -s"? This is what I'd do at this point.

    Go back to here.

    Download minirc.dfl.

    Put that in the usr/local/etc directory I had you create earlier.

    Then go back and run minicom (with no -s).

    You should get:

    AT S7=45 S0=0 L1 V1 X4 &c1 E1 Q0
    OK

    Then you should be able to type AT and get a response of OK.

    Start from Step 9 of the guide on this site and you should be home free.

    EDIT: Actually, you might already be. You posted again before I reposted. It doesn't LOOK like you can type in the Terminal window, but try typing AT anyway.

    Okay, a couple things. If you have the bbupdater binary on your phone, I would "bbupdater -v" to test if the unlock even worked. You should get an xgendata output. If you don't have it, it's on that site I've linked to, and it goes in /usr/bin

    Second, there's no standard cursor in the minicom binary, but it might still let you type. Mine does, and I can issue AT commands.

    I also see this if I press control + A:

    CTRL-A Z for help |115200 8N1 | NOR | Minicom 2.2 | VT102 | Offline

    I seriously haven't got a clue what Im doing right now but Im just following your instructions and it feels like Im getting closer and closer. I did what you said and I get this in response:

    -sh-3.2# bbupdater -v
    -sh: /usr/bin/bbupdater: Permission denied
    -sh-3.2#

    ?! What next?

    Sounds like you need to navigate to the /usr/bin directory in SSH and chmod +x bbupdater , first of all.

    Then when you run it -v you should get something similar to this:

    # bbupdater -v
    Resetting target...
    pinging the baseband...
    issuing +xgendata...
    firmware: DEV_ICE_MODEM_03.14.08_G
    eep version: EEP_VERSION:207
    eep revision: EEP_REVISION:7
    bootloader: BOOTLOADER_VERSION:3.9_M3S2
    Done

    Then you should run minicom. AT string or not, you should be able to type (cursor or not, there may be a small delay) AT and get a response of OK.

    Damn the last thing you asked me to do is way over my head... I put the bbupdater in the directory as you said. What next?

    I don't get the chmod thing.. what do you want me to type?

    (Seriously, thanks for replying this fast and taking your time! You're the man...)

  16. #112
    While you're still in SSH, type cd /usr/bin

    Then type "chmod +x bbupdater" which basically gives you permission to execute it.

    Then go back and start from "bbupdater -v" like posted above.

    No problem, these things are a pain sometimes.

    -sh-3.2# /bin/launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    nothing found to load

    Can't be far now...

    Does anyone know if..i restored the phone, will it still be unlocked?

    One more note, you might find your logo disappeared after unlocked..just do a hard reset, it will appear again.

    Goodluck guys..this is great for the iphone...great for Apple. They'll sell more phones. I'm getting a 4G for $225 on Craigslist..will unlock it for my brother who lives in Switzerland..he'll be soooooooo happy. Yay!!!

    Hey guys, dont know if it would help but i used PuTTy..with ibrickr..on Vista.
    I followed the instructions on http://iphone.unlock.no/, and it worked the first time i tried it..no mishaps whatsoever.

    I downloaded PuTTY here...the first one PuTTY.exe http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~s.../download.html

    GoodLuck.

  25. #119
    I finally did it!! Now to decide if I want to go back to T-Mobile and pay that rediculous fee again. Thank you to everyone who made this all possible.
