How to Activate and Jailbreak Your OTB 1.1.2 iPhone

Posted December 12, 2007 at 10:29am by iClarified
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.

How to Activate and Jailbreak Your OTB 1.1.2 iPhone

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.

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.

What's up! Fooling around with zibris procedure without success. Now trying this tutorial... Tweaks 1.1.1 is no longer available in installer!!! Aargh! What's going on?

Hi , Everything worked and I got my iphone jailbroken. However it is not recognizing any international SIM. except At&T?? I wonder if there is a way to do it? I am not using stealth sim. Thanks, Harsh

I always get an error (1015) when trying to upgrate to 1.1.2 (with OTB 1.1.3 iPhone). Any idea? I also tried to skip 1.1.2 and instead go from 1.1.1 directly to 1.1.3, but then I had problems that the installer does not want to install anything anymore. Anybody knows if skipping 1.1.2 would really hurt that much? Thx

Hi Ignacio de la Rica, I just post a comment with a problem with the OktoPrep stuff. Ignacio de la Rica, how you install Oktoprep yourself, I do have installer 3.0 I think thats the problem. Regards

Hi guys, I tried to use the jailbreak from 1.1.1(4.03 baseband) to 1.1.2 with this method, install follow all the steps, and at the time of using jailbreak 1.1.2 it appears a sign thats says you need to install Oktoprep, but as a mather of fact I already install Oktoprep from the installer aplication in tweaks 1.1.1 What am I doing wrong? Comments will be appreciated.

j - February 5, 2008 at 12:37am
also i did run okeprep after installing appsnapp just to make sure it installed. following iclarified instructions and also what i added in comments i was successful on my first attempt jailbreaking and activating a week 46 1.1.2 OTB iphone. Yay!

j - February 5, 2008 at 12:34am
Success!!!!! Thanks Pal. Follow Pal's steps to successfully complete. After running jailbreak.jar and it completes successfully iphone is frozen with the itunes logo on it (no slide to unlock or for emergency call appears) and itunes opens automatically and detects iphone in recovery mode. Just close itunes and launch independence again and give it a sec and watch the status bar at the bottom. It will reboot iphone and success..."slide to unlock" Also in the very beginning if itunes doesnt recognize iphone automatically you have to reinstall itunes. i had 7.5 reinstalled 7.6 and it then detected iphone.
Ignacio de la Rica
Ignacio de la Rica - February 3, 2008 at 6:14am
Ooooops! I found out a way to do it! Definitively OktoPrep is not installed with the AppsSnapp 3.0 What I did is the following: 1) I installed OktoPrep myself. Don't forget to press home button to finish installation. 2) Update it to 1.1.2. 3) Run jailbreak.jar following the tutorial. 4) At the end of the process, I got my Iphone into recovery mode, then I quitted iTunes and I ran Independence for a second time to exit recovery mode. After some time and screen movement in the Iphone I saw the friendly "slide to unlock". I did this with two different iPhones and it succesed with both.

Ignacio de la Rica - February 3, 2008 at 3:54am
This tutorial says before step one on How to Update to 1.1.2: "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" Is there any way to check if OktoPrep is installed? Apparently it is not instaled becasue when I run jailbreak.jar inmediatly it gives message error: "This utility can only be used if you have already run OktoPrep before updating to 1.1.2" As OktoPrep is in the Install folder of Installer I riun it and, then, I followed steps One and Two of the updating tutorial. When jailbreak.jar is almost finished the Ipnohe didn't reboot and turn back to recovery mode. On Friday I jailbroke and actvated two Iphones 1.1.2 O.T.B. following the tutorial and the previous version of AppSnapp (updating to v.3.0 after the jailbreaking), so installing OktoPrep myself. On Saturday I tried with another one (in the same condictions, with the same software, with the same computer, in the same room) and failed as I told above. My conclusion is that something is wrong with the new version of AppSnapp. Obviously the mistake could be mine, but I don't find it. Please is there anyway to contact with AppSnapp developers to check this? Thank U for your help.

David! Tried Påls replie to my previous post. Then the sollution was to simply run iNdependence once more and all of a sudden everything was fine... Now trying with my third iPhone... But now this doesn't seem to work out!!! Same i setup! Aargh!!!
Ignacio de la Rica
Ignacio de la Rica - February 2, 2008 at 6:26am
I have followed all the steps of this tutorial. When I run jailbreak.jar I am receiving an erro message "This utility can only be used if you have already run OktoPrep before updating to 1.1.2" and quit. If I run OktoPrep before updating, the jailbrek.jar doesn't works. Any suggestions pls?
David
David - February 2, 2008 at 2:29am
Jonas, I pretty much say the same! The first time I unlocked my iBrick easily, everything worked great, but after a second restore due to certain issues, I can not get my iphone to upgrade fro 1.1.1 to 1.1.2. It reverse to the restore mode. So far, no way to overcome the probleme, tried everything once, twice, thousand times. Any idea?
