    Default How do I know what method was used to unlock my 1.0.2 iphone?
    Hi All

    I bought my phone from ebay about 6mths ago now. It was already unlocked and has worked great since.

    I'm now thinking of upgrading from 1.0.2 to 1.1.3 (a reliable simple way of doing this is something I'm still search this and many other forums for - feel free to point me in the right direction )

    One thing I've noticed searching for the best upgrade path is many 'tutorials' seem to depend on the method that was original used to unlock your phone. I've got no idea - whats the best way to find out.

    I have noticed quite a few people looking for the same info I was. I am at 1.0.2 on a phone I bought in Singapore October 2007. I bought it unlocked and had no idea of what method had been used. I'm thinking of upgrading, or at least making sure I have the tools and procedures in place for when I do go ahead.

    After wading my way through so many forums and search engines I managed to pull the details from several different posts.

    First ensure your SIM PIN is turned off. Check in Settings > Phone > SIM PIN

    From a ssh terminal session like PuTTY connect to your phone.

    Stop CommCenter, type
    launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
    and hit enter

    Start minicomm, type minicom -s and hit enter

    Scroll down to serial port setup and hit enter
    To select Serial Device type a
    Backspace over the current value (/dev/modem) and type /dev/tty.baseband and hit enter
    Get out of the minicom configuration screens by hitting esc twice

    Your screen should now look like

    Welcome to minicom 2.2

    Port /dev/tty.baseband

    Press CTRL-A Z for help on special keys

    type AT+xsimstate=1 and hit enter

    The output from this command looks something like

    +XSIM: 2

    +XLOCK: "PN",4,0,"PU",5,0,"PP",5,0,"PC",5,0,"PS",5,0


    If it appears as +XLOCK: "PN",4 it was unlocked via anySIM1.0.2,iUnlock, or hardware unlock
    if it appears as +XLOCK: "PN",1 it was unlocked via anySIM1.1
    if it appears as +XLOCK: "PN",5 it was unlocked with IPSF

    To exit minicom press ctrl a then x
    To select yes press enter
    Start CommCenter again, type launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ and hit enter
    Turn on your SIM PIN again if desired in Settings > Phone > SIM PIN
