These are instructions are on how to unlock a 1.1.1 iPhone or an iPhone that has been upgraded to 1.1.2 firmware. These instructions do not work for a 1.1.2 iPhone new from the store.

If your firmware is 1.1.1 please use iTunes to update to latest firmware(1.1.2) before starting this tutorial! You need to do this otherwise the unlocker used in this tutorial won't work.

Just hold the home button till iTunes detects the iPhone.


Step Three
iTunes will then detect an iPhone in restore mode.


Hold down the Shift key and click Restore.


A dialog window will appear asking you to select the firmware to restore to. Select the 1.1.1 firmware we downloaded earlier (iPhone1,1_1.1.1_3A109a_Restore.ipsw)

UPGRADE TO 1.1.2
- Download the Jailbreak 1.1.2 package from: here.
- Download the new ipetools from: here
- Download the 1.1.2 Firmware from: here

At this point normally we would have installed OktoPrep from Installer (Tweaks 1.1.1 Category). The new jailbreakme.com is supposed to do this for you now. I've heard a couple reports of the site not doing it so I've left this in the tutorial for now!

Step One
Reboot your phone by holding down the Sleep/Wake button for three seconds. Move the power slider to right to power down. Then press the Sleep/Wake button again to power back on.


Step Two
Launch iTunes.


Name your iPhone if it asks then click the Done button.


Step Three
If you get a dialog window asking you to update to 1.1.3 click the Don't Install button.

(NOTE*: The image says 1.1.2 in this example because i don't have the new image yet).

Hold down Shift and click the Update button to update to 1.1.3


A dialog window will appear asking you to select the firmware to restore to. Select the 1.1.2 firmware we downloaded earlier (iPhone1,1_1.1.2_3B48b_Restore.ipsw)

Once complete a dialog box will appear letting you know you have updated successfully.




When it finishes updating, the iPhone will have been restarted. The new emergency slider and connect to iTunes image will be on the iPhone.

Step Four
Close iTunes then extract the 1.1.2-jailbreak.jar we downloaded earlier. A folder will be extracted called 1.1.2-jailbreak.

Double click windows.bat from within this folder to start the jailbreak.


Step Five
A popup will appear asking you to enter the desired password and whether or not to enable SSH. Make sure you check to enable SSH and then press Jailbreak!


Whens it done a popup will appear letting you know the jailbreak has been successful! During this process the phone may be rebooted a few times.




Step Six
From your springboard press to run the Installer application.

Press to select the Install tab at the bottom.


Press to open the System category.


From the System Category press to select BSD Subsystem.


Then press the Install button at the top right of the screen. When prompted select Install again to begin the installation.


Once the install has finished you will be placed back at the Category list.

Step Seven
Extract ipetools.zip that we downloaded earlier. You will extract a folder called ipetools. Inside this folder is "ipe-lockdownd-tools.tgz". We need to copy this to the iPhone.

Go back to WinSCP. Log back into your iPhone using the same procedure as before.


On the left navigate to the folder that contains "ipe-lockdownd-tools.tgz" and on the right navigate to your root directory. Copy "ipe-lockdownd-tools.tgz" to your root directory.


Step Eight
Select Open Terminal from the Commands menu.


You may be asked to Confirm. Click Ok.


Step Nine
Enter the following commands then press the Execute button after each line:

cd /
cp /usr/libexec/lockdownd /usr/libexec/lockdownd.bak
tar -xvzf ipe-lockdownd-tools.tgz
cd ipetools
./ipatcher -a



Step Ten
Reboot your phone by holding down the Sleep/Wake button for three seconds. Move the power slider to right to power down. Then press the Sleep/Wake button again to power back on.


Step Eleven
Go back to WinSCP. Log back into your iPhone using the same procedure as before.


Step Twelve
Select Open Terminal from the Commands menu.


You may be asked to Confirm. Click Ok.


Step Thirteen
Enter the following commands then press the Execute button after each line:

killall -9 lockdownd
cd /ipetools
./bricktool



Step Fourteen
Reboot your phone by holding down the Sleep/Wake button for three seconds. Move the power slider to right to power down. Then press the Sleep/Wake button again to power back on.


You can now put in any SIM. You have an unlocked iPhone!!!

NOTES:
I'd rapidly improving the quality of my own screenshots; however, some of them have been obtained from around the net. Most notably I'd like to give thanks to Mark from HacktheiPhone.

THANKS:
Well, I also really need to thank all the developers who have been working like crazy to make this tutorial even possible, the iPhone Dev Team and the ipetools creators - 79b1caf2c95695e0af0e6216216eec54 -BlaCkBirD -Zibri -b1llyb0y -kiwi66 -rdh.
A big thanks to chainsawwws who helped me get through these steps successfully!

HK, Please let me know if you figure out how to get past the anysim error message.

Hey, Ali try running the appsnap while you\'re connected to iTunes. I have the same problem Nicole has, I keep getting \"error package download failed\". Then I downloaded anysim 1.2 from a different source. It said \"anysim cannot unlock this phone. anysim will now quit\". The first time I followed this tutorial everything went smoothly, I only got problems after I restored my firmware.
