How to Activate and Jailbreak Your OTB 1.1.2 iPhone

These are instructions are on how to activate and jailbreak an iPhone that was shipped with the 1.1.2 firmware (OTB, OOB, OTTB) and the 4.6 bootloader. These instructions do not unlock your iPhone to use on other carriers. They do however allow you to install applications and in general use your iPhone as an iPod touch.

If you are not sure if you have the 4.6 bootloader then check the serial number of the iPhone. If the 4th and 5th digits are 45 or higher then you have the new bootloader and cannot unlock. Follow this tutorial until an unlock is found. As soon as a software unlock is released I will post instructions so check back.

**NOTE** (Wednesday, December 20th, 2007 12:00):
Here is a list of suggestions for those still having problems with the jailbreak server(Step 22). These suggestions have not been proven as it has always worked for me. However, they are still probably worth a try if the server is giving difficulty. If anyone has a suggestion to add then please let me know.
- Try to do a hard reset on the iPhone and try again
- Make sure you have a strong wireless signal
- Try the jailbreak with your iPhone still connected to the computer and iTunes
- Try using http://www.jailbreakme.com instead of http://jailbreakme.com
- Disable wireless encryption on your network
- Use a Wi-Fi connection without proxy

**NOTE** (Tuesday, December 18th, 2007 23:00):
I have posted a video of what the jailbreak process should look like. I hope this will clear up some of the steps if anything is not understood.



DOWNGRADE TO 1.1.1
Step One
For this you will need iNdependance 1.3.1, iTunes 7.5, and iPhone Firmware 1.1.1.
- Update iTunes to get the latest version.
- Download iNdependance from here: here
- Download iPhone Firmware 1.1.1 from: here

Step Two
Double click iNdependence_v1.3.1.dmg to mount the disk image. Drag the iNdependence application to your Applications folder.


Step Three
Connect your iPhone to your Mac. Press and hold Home and Power button of your iPhone at the same time. Once the screen turns black, release the power button but keep on holding the Home button until Apple logo changes to the restore screen.


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


Hold down the Option 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)


At the end of the restore you will get Error 1015. This is okay. Simply click the Ok button.


Step Five
Press and hold Home and Power button of your iPhone at the same time. Once the screen turns black, release the power button but keep on holding the Home button until Apple logo changes to the restore screen.


Step Six
iTunes will then again detect an iPhone in restore mode.


Step Seven
Eject your iPhone and Quit iTunes.

Step Eight
Open iNdependance by double clicking its icon in Applications.


Step Nine
iNdependence will after a short time take your iPhone out of recovery mode. If you get an error or it doesn't seem to be working then restart the iPhone and try it again. You might also try to disconnect the usb cable and plug it back in. If its really being difficult then just re-restore to 1.1.1 and try again.


Once it is successfully out of DFU mode you will see the Activate Phone screen displayed on your iPhone.


Step Ten
Quit Independence.

JAILBREAK 1.1.1
Step One
At the "Activate iPhone" screen move the slider to the right for emergency calling.


Step Two
Dial "*#307#" then press the Call button.


Step Three
You will hear the phone call itself. Use the back arrow to clear the number you just enter. Now dial "0" then press the Call button.


Step Four
Now you will be able to see the incoming call. Press the Accept button.


Step Five
Now press the Hold button to put the call on hold.


Step Six
The phone will call itself again. This time press the Decline button.


Step Seven
We are now presented with the keypad again. Press the Contacts tab at the bottom. We now are presented with an empty contacts menu. Click the plus(+) button to add a new contact.


Step Eight
Press Add New URL.


Step Nine
Input prefs: as the url then press the Save button.


Step Ten
Press Add New URL again.


Step Eleven
Input http://jailbreakme.com as the url then press the Save button.


Press the Done button to finish adding the contact.


Step Twelve
Now in the contact view you will see the 2 urls. Press the prefs: url.


Step Thirteen
This will bring up the iPhone's Settings Menu. Select your wireless network from the Wi-Fi category. Press the Settings button at the top left to go back to the Settings Menu.


Step Fourteen
Select the General category from the Settings Menu. Then select the Auto-Lock subcategory.


Press to select Never from the list of Auto-Lock times.


Press the Settings button at the top left to return to the settings window.

Step Fifteen
Press the Home button. At the "Activate iPhone" screen move the slider to the right for emergency calling.


Step Sixteen
Now dial "0" then press the Call button.


Step Seventeen
Now you will be able to see the incoming call. Press the Accept button.


Step Eighteen
Now press the Hold button to put the call on hold.


Step Nineteen
The phone will call itself again. This time press the Decline button.


Step Twenty
We now are presented with our contacts menu. Press to select the contact we added.


Step Twenty One
Press the http://jailbreakme.com url. This will open Safari and take you to jailbreakme.com


Step Twenty Two
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and press Install AppSnapp.



Phone will return to activation screen, but don't panic, just wait. iPhone should automatically restart after almost a minute. When the phone starts again, it should no longer say Slide to emergency, but rather Slide to Unlock. This means it was successful!

I've had a few reports of the emergency slider not changing to the unlock slider. The best suggestion so far has been to keep the iPhone connected to the computer and make sure its detected in iTunes. Otherwise it seems to work if you retry installing AppSnapp till it works. Don't know what the issue is exactly (maybe a server load issue) but if it doesn't work immediately then try again.


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

Step One
Press to launch Installer from the Springboard.


Step Two
Choose to donate if you like. Note: you probably should...


Step Three
Navigate to Categories and then select the Tweaks(1.1.1) category.


Step Four
Press to select OktoPrep from the list of Tweaks.


Step Five
Click the Install button at the top right of the screen.


Step Six
Press the Install button on the next window to begin install.


Step Seven
Click the Ok button to confirm that we are ready to update to 1.1.2


Step Eight
Connect the iPhone to your Mac. Then launch iTunes and select the iPhone.


iTunes may ask you to name your iPhone. Once you have set the name then hold down the OPTION key and click the UPDATE button to update your iPhone to 1.1.2. (Note: Don't click the Restore button this time!)


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)




Quit iTunes once the update is complete.

Step Nine
Double click the 1.1.2-jailbreak.zip file you downloaded to extract it. Double click jailbreak.jar to begin the jailbreak process.


Select the checkbox to install SSH. You can leave the password as alpine or change it to whatever you want.




Step Ten
Once the Done popup window appears reboot your device by holding the power button down for 3 seconds and moving the slider that appears to the right. Press the power button again to turn it back on.




Wait about a minute and the iPhone will boot then reboot by itself a second time.

YAY :) you should now have an activated and jailbreaked iPhone!

NOTES:
Some screenshots have been located from around the net. Most notably I'd like to thank Mark from HacktheiPhone.

If you using this guide for StealthSIM or similar and you are in an unsupported country then you will need to install iWorld from the Installer for your calling to work properly.

THANKS:
Well, I also really need to thank all the developers who have been working like crazy to make this tutorial even possible. Im really not even sure who all I have to name but thanks to everyone! iPhone Dev Team, iNdependence Creator (operator), iPhone Elite Dev Team, ...

If you cannot find oktoprep, add http://hackthatphone.com/1.xml to your sources in installer app and oktoprep will show up in your packages.. I had to redo the downgrade to 1.1.1, jailbreak etc. and then install oktoprep. After this, your \"update\" to 1.1.2 via itunes may give you a \"1015\" error - but no worries, just launch independence again and then run the jailbreak 1.1.2 file. Then you should be able to apply the Geohot unlock from the iclarified sources in installer app. Good luck.

I did this all, it works. But if I want to call somebody I get ; You\'re not alloud to dial this number, and the same if I want to send a sms.. What should I do? ( I already installed iWorld)

Update: I really could skip 1.1.2 and directly update from 1.1.1 to 1.1.3. I just had to install BSDsubsystem and openSSH before going to 1.1.3, and afterwards I needed to install a new installer.app through the Terminal.
