There is a much easier way to unlock your phone . here are the steps: 1. download iTunes on your computer ibrickr on your computer 3. connect your iPhone to your computer with USB. 4.launch ibrickr from the directory you installed it to ibrickr you will see some instructions . They are to jailbreak your phone. do those then relaunch ibrickr . 6 . Click the applications tab .you will see more instructions. when you jailbroke it did not automatically install installer for you . these instructions are to do that .do those the browse tab 8. click the anysim tab. This will install anysim on your iPhone . 9. Disconnect your phone from the computer 10. Insert your new SIM card 11 launch anysim. 12. click the ok tab then wait for it to complete. It should take about 15 minutes.

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.

I just bought a new 1.0.2 iPhone from the AT&T store. How should I unlock it with a Windows PC? Should I ugrade it to 1.1.1? Then upgrade from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2? And then follow the tutorial "How to Unlock a 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 Upgraded iPhone Using Windows"? Thank-you for the help.

hi i am stuck at step 14 my iphone crashes as soon as i go into the wifi connections and restored it couple of time but nothing it still does the same thing ... :( plz help
Andrew - January 12, 2008 at 1:22am
I receive a message when i run jailbreak for 1.1.2 that i did not rut okto prep although i did run it.. Any ideas?
Aljan - January 12, 2008 at 12:05am
Jin, I had the same problem and what i did was repeating the anySim process this time with version 1.2 instead of 1.1 (after completing the whole guide and getting the incorrect Sim message) with the ATT card in. It workd for me, just run anySIM1.2 at the end with ATT card, shut down iPhone, insert your SIM and done. Hope it helps
Andrew - January 11, 2008 at 3:37pm
I followed your tutorial but when i try to install the installer from the it just goes to the activation screen without doing anything. I tryied it several times, but it jus won't work. PLS help. I have to mention that i had an unlocked 1.1.1 phone which crashed and i had to update it to 1.1.2. At which point i started following your tutorial. Tnx

hey iClarified, great work, but i was just wondering, would this method jailbreak and unlock OTB 1.1.2 (week 50) iphones? i heard there was a problem with the baseband, is this true? can this resolve the baseband too?

Okidoke, fixed the keypad issue and also crashing on sms and phone features. What I did was install the iWorld app, and that did it. Maybe you should note that too in the tutorial. Also another tip: copy and paste the commands when using the terminal tool to avoid typos. Thanks again.

Just did the whole tutorial. My phone is of the first release (bought it June 29) and was activated with AT+T with update to 1.1.2. Seems to works now with Telcel Mexico. The only issue I have right now is that the keypad aborts at the first number entered. Still works with contacts. A couple of notes on the tutorial: Should be noted never to disconnect the iPhone from the usb. Also I needed to reinstall the OpenSSH after step 6 in the upgrade 1.1.2 process (maybe because I had updated the installler app). Thanks and great work!!!
iClarified - December 30, 2007 at 1:52pm
jin, did AnySIM install successfully ? Did you update (not restore) to 1.1.2 successfully?
iClarified - December 30, 2007 at 1:50pm
Jerry, make sure you completed step 7 correctly and copied the file to the right location. Use the command 'ls' in Terminal to make sure the file is there. If the file is not present then the 'tar' command will definitely not work.
jin - December 30, 2007 at 12:31am
thanks for great tutorial, my i phone verison is 44th week, i try to unlock it with your instruction. but after i done all the steps it still says "this iphone must be used with an approved sim" can you help me to solve the problem. thanks!
jerry - December 30, 2007 at 12:10am

I have a OTB 1.1.2 that I have downgraded to 1.1.1, jailbroke and activated and upgraded back to 1.1.2. I popped my ATT sim card in and it works fine however I can not use my Tmobile sim. I have seen so much stuff out there so I am a little confused. Can I use your method (which is very well documented) and go back down to 1.1.1 and follow your steps to the end at which point I can use my Tmobile sim. Thanks, and great work.

hi, i'm trying to follow your amazing guide, but after I install appsnapp it doesn't go to where it says slide to unlock but it stays with slide for emergency. I've previously had my iphone unlocked, but somethng went wrong and I have to redo it. after downgrading to 1.1.1 i check my firmware and it says 04.02.13_G. does that mean that i'm still on 1.1.2? should that be 04.01.13_G? if yes how can I downgrade to that? thanks
aspenmitch - December 15, 2007 at 2:40am
do i need a valid simcard to follow this tutorial? i'm using my tmobile. thanks
aspenmitch - December 15, 2007 at 2:07am
hi, trying to unlock my 1.0.2 iphone (which had a simfree software installed prev, but was not working) So i decided to use the tutorial but i get stock in step where should say slide to unlock, mine keeps saying slide for emergency. I followed all steps but don't know what am i doing wrong. Any ideas? thanks
Andrew - December 12, 2007 at 8:50pm
i unlocked it using anysim 1.1 from the installer
iClarified - December 12, 2007 at 4:44pm
Did you unlock using anySIM 1.2u? If not you can't update. 1.1.2 is more stable and enables easy ringtones through iTunes again.
Andrew - December 12, 2007 at 1:40am
i did virginize it, and at the end any sim wouldnt unlock it 4 some reason, but now i finally ugraded to 1.1.1 and unlocked it, using a differnt site, should i upgrade to 1.1.2 or is there not much of a difference?
iClarified - December 12, 2007 at 12:47am
Andrew the reason you were having trouble with the tutorial is because you have previously unlocked iPhone. If anyone has a previously unlocked phone and is trying to use this tutorial you must virginize first!
Andrew - December 11, 2007 at 1:49am
now i tried 2 restore it to 1.1.1 and it says error 1015
Andrew - December 11, 2007 at 1:41am
so now i tried 2 restore it and it wont let me, it says could not restore iphone error code 1
Andrew - December 11, 2007 at 1:31am
and now it wont even start up, when i turn it on, it shows the white apple and the littile loading circle and it juss stays there, but if i put it in itunes it thinks its fine and the same with ibrikr
Andrew - December 11, 2007 at 1:18am
i did everything u said, i had 1.0.2 unlocked and upgraded to 1.1.1 then to 1.1.2 and i did everything and it took a long time, but after all of this it says something about the sim card not being the right sim card, so my problem is that it isnt unlocked i guess, can u help?
iName - December 7, 2007 at 5:54am
Thanks iClarified. My hope is in next Saturday. :) Another thing.... Can you make a tutorial for downgrade, jailbreake, upgrade and again jailbrake an OTB 1.1.2? Yours tutorials are better than others found in the web. And i never found one that have a full explanation about that. Normaly they have only downgrade and jailbreak 1.1.1, and not upgrade again do 1.1.2. Or have a upgrade but no downgrade. Thanks and best regard´s.
iClarified - December 6, 2007 at 9:23am
iName, at this point it is not possible to unlock 1.1.2 OTB iPhones (New Bootloader). You can however still jailbreak and activate.
Marco - December 6, 2007 at 8:43am
nevermind... my computer sucks. I fix the problem and just jailbreak my OTB 1.1.2 according to your instructions. Tks,
