UPDATE***: December 07, 2007. I have updated this tutorial to no longer require downgrading to 1.0.2. This should save a bit of time and also removes the need to use Fugu.

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 restore 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. Also your phone needs to be virginized if you have ever unlocked it before.


DOWNGRADE TO 1.1.1
Step One
For this you will need iNdependance 1.3 beta, iTunes 7.5, iPhone Firmware 1.1.1, and MobileDevice 7.4.2 Framework.
- Update iTunes to get the latest version.
- Download iNdependance from here: iNdependence_v1.3_beta2.dmg
- Download MobileDevice 7.4.2 Framework from: MobileDevice_7_4_2.framework.zip
- Download iPhone Firmware 1.1.1 from: here

Step Two
Double click iNdependence_v1.3_beta2.dmg to mount the disk image. Drag the iNdependence application to your Applications folder.

UPGRADE TO 1.1.2
- Download the Jailbreak 1.1.2 package from: 1.1.2-jailbreak.zip.
- 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
Connect the iPhone to your Mac. Then launch iTunes and select the iPhone.

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

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

NOTES:
I had to piece together many of these screenshots because I no longer have an iPhone with the old bootloader. In the steps to add iClarified as a source in Installer you will notice I am connected to Fido. In your case you will not have a connection so please ignore that. Some screenshots have been located from around the net. Most notably I'd like to thank Mark from HacktheiPhone for many.

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, ...

I had the same problem as JaMa84. After recovering back to 1.1.1 and starting over and getting the same problem, I decided on a whim to launch iNdependence to see if it could fix it. I ran it and let it sit (like before), and eventually it popped up a box that said that 1.1.2 was unsupported. BUT, the iPhone went back to the "Slide to unlock" screen, iTunes claimed it was perfectly fine at 1.1.2, and installer was there and everything was happy. I'm now moving on to the 1.1.3 update.

Hello I have followed the instructions, but at the last step it failed. The iPhone wouldn't reboot, but jumped into recovery mode. iTunes was stopped, but after a while I started iTunes to see what was going on and I got on the screen that I had to activate my iPhone with AT&T. I tried to retry and reset but nothing works! PLEASE can someone help me! Greetz

Just to note, if you had a 1.1.1 firmware with the 4.01.13G instead of 4.01.13G bootloader then the 1.2.1u anysim is not going to work. Instead you have to use anysim 1.1.1. Then you upgrade to firmware 1.2.1 and procede with the 1.2.1u anysim since the upgrade will update the bootloader. I think i got this strait. oh, and on the last step, if you already had your iphone profile setup in itunes, be sure to unplug the device after the final jailbreak.jar when it starts doing its reboots. otherwise it might get locked up.

I have an iphone from weak 43, with firmware 1.1.1., but updated for 1.1.2. I've already made an anysim process, but when I finish it and I put the "TMN carrier sim" it says : Incorrect SIM This Iphone must be used with an approced sim" does anybody knows how to solve it? Thank you very Much Duarte from Portugal

Use Firefox to download the firmware. Safari extracts it as soon as it downloads and that is why you arent seeing the ipsw file.

The problem you are experiencing with Fugu is easy to fix. Select Preferences from the Fugu dropdown menu. Select the Known Hosts tab. Delete the key you previously saved for your iPhone. Reboot Fugu.

I ran into a problem when I was supposed to add the anySIM app using Fugu... i got a error msg that says: @ WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED! @ Quite frustrating actually... so I decided to try CyberDuck instead... which WORKED!!! so if anyone has this problem... try using CyberDuck... I was using version 2.8... and just as the instructions say in this guide... put the anySIM1.2.app file into the applications folder... and i'm finally onto the next step!! I hope this helps someone... thanks!!!

When you use the download link for the 1.1.1 firmware you should get a .ipsw file. This is the correct file name iPhone1,1_1.1.1_3A109a_Restore.ipsw to download to.
