    NONE of those mate, it should be exactly like this, Iphone 1,1_1.1.4_4A102 Restore.ipsw

    with a picture of like a lego cube with music logo on 1 side and a ipod on the other. search your computer for 1.1.4, see what come up.

    No no, sometime when you download the file, it saves as a .zip file. Make sure the extension is .ispw. Don't unzip it first, as soon as the download is finished then just change the extension to .ispw.

    as u can tell im being ridiculously cautious.. but just wanted to give you more background info to double check the above recommendations still apply..

    given that:
    * I purchased a iphone 1.1.2 in the states - its been 'jailbreaked' and unlocked (with problems now - cant call or sms) This was hooked up to itunes 7.6.2 on mac OSx
    * I dont know what method my friend used to unlock it.

    will any of these things affect your recommendations or is still safe to proceed?
    None of them shell affect your fresh restore and/or jailbreak.
    Your phone will be back at it's stock state at version 1.1.4, then you just jailbreak, activate and unlock your iPhone using iLiberty. It will then work on ANY network in Australia and anywhere.

    Trust us man. Take the plunge. There's not much that can go wrong. It's all tested and there is a 99.999999999999999999999999% success rate.
    You have to take a risk in the modding world. I have many-a-time. And I have stressed my nuts off. But thanks to the great people at this forum, there is always help at hand, and almost any issue can be fixed.

    You need to make mistakes to learn from them. Fortunately for you, at this stage of the jailbreaking procedure, many other have for you making it as safe as it is today!

    Read my above post...

    Ok, if this is becoming to difficult, just put your iPhone into restore mode and hit restore in iTunes, without holding the option/shift key.
    It will restore to 1.1.4 automatically and you should be able to jailbreak/unlock/activate without a problem...

    heheh yeah im ready to now! but i just cant get hold of this file! : )

    When it dowloads it automatically unzips it without me doing anything.. then it turns into a folder called iPhone1,1_1

    Ive attached screen grab.. the zip files you see arent available as i trashed the related folders. (it then reverts to displaying as a zip file again in DL's even tho the file isnt there)

    There is something that goes wrong when downloading... It changes the extension to .zip.

    To fix this, in Safari go to Safari>Preferences.
    In the General tab, uncheck the "Open safe files after downloading" box.
    Then download the firmware again.
    And once it downloads, locate the file and change the extension to .ispw.

    OR

    For a simpler method, just put your iPhone into restore mode and click Restore without holding Option/Shift.
    It will automatically download the 1.1.4 firmware straight to your phone, then just use iLiberty...


    EDIT: Sorry, didn't realise you had worked it out...

    Nah, don't worry about changing the sim. It don't make a difference. Just launch iLiberty now and unlock/jailbreak/activate.

    Then try out your phone, to see if it calls and txts...

    Then start installing apps via Installer. Have fun. Congrats on taking the plunge and becoming a real modder.
