    Default Help unlocking
    Hi all,
    I recently got a iphone 8gb and i want to unlock/jail it. (im using Windows 7 64bit)

    I first put the iphone is recovery mode and connected it to my computer and using itunes 9 and held SHIFT and clicked on restore and tried to restore using "iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw" but it was incompatible so i assume its a 3G model, so i downloaded "iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw" and it started to restore but it gave me error, saying it couldnt be resorted code (1015) and ever since been stuck there!.

    ps. ive been following http://modmyi.com/forums/iphone-news...0-redsn0w.html

    Perhaps you try to should restore again using the 3.0 .ipsw, then use redsn0w 0.8
    If you have a 2g phone you will need the 2 bootloader files or if 3g ultrasn0w from Cydia.

    I cannot access the phone as im trying to use a UK T-Mobile sim, so im doing without sim.

    When you say 3.0 is that the ipsw that itunes 9 automatically downloads for my iphone, when i goto the itunes folder all i can find is "iPhone1,2_3.1_7C144_Restore.ipsw" and it wont work with redsn0w

    No, that's for 3.1 follow this link and you can get the 3.0 firmware needed. You can actually leave your Sim card during the J/B process.
    Is this a 2g or 3g phone?

    To be honest i have no idea if it is 2G or 3G.. is there anyway to tell?..

    I think its a 3G as it has the black plastic back with 8GB.

    Update:
    so i downloaded both the 2G 3.0 Firmware and 3G 3.0 Firmware from that site but itunes 9 only lets me install 3G 3.0 Firmware and half way i get that error occured (1015) stil...

    yup, 3g so once you have the jailbreak complete you will open Cydia and add install repo666.ultrasn0w.com and that will unlock it for you.

    Well i wish i could get that far, im stuck at the installation process. Could it be because it was updated to 3.1 so i cannot downgrade to 3.0 to redsn0w

    Yes, what happened is when you updated to 3.1 you changed the baseband firmware so you may have to wait till the New Jailbreak/unlock comes out. The word is that it will be released on the 25th of this month.

    Or you can check from the source at Dev-Team Blog
    doesn't look like 3.1's baseband is going to be unlocked for a while though...
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something
