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.

Update; It works now! Thanks to everyone who made this possible!

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, I have the same problem as Mike, "Can not connect to the device" when trying to run Jailbreak.jar as Mike below. Have been up all night, still no success, Please someone??
Mike - February 9, 2008 at 5:30pm
Can someone please help me. When I go to run the Jailbreak.jar i get an error that says it cannot connect to the device. Anyone know why this is happening and what can be done to fix it?

To clarify, I did took my finger off the power button and kept the home button pressed. I tried this 3 times already, it just doesn't work. Anyone have any idea what's wrong?
tta - February 9, 2008 at 4:51pm
Hi, I got stuck on the 2nd step. I press and hold the power + home button, the phone turn off, but I waited for a while and it doesn't go into restore mode. How long do I suppose to wait or am I screw here?

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
Alvaro - February 9, 2008 at 10:30am
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.

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.

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 - 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 - 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?
fly - February 1, 2008 at 6:07pm
I'm having some trouble with the update process when I get to update to 1.1.2 everything goes like the tutorial but the phone get lock and it doesn't reboot twice to jailbreak it. I tried the process twice and also tried to re-run the Jailbreak file but the result is still the same. Any advise? thanks F

cecile - January 25, 2008 at 7:11am
Thanks to Pal for the solution, it worked perfectly for me.
Pål - January 21, 2008 at 4:28pm
Jonas Quit iTunes do not unplugg iPhone. Then go to step nine, ten and probably my new step eleven. Don't run iTunes until you got out of restore mode.
Jonas - January 21, 2008 at 4:27pm
Thanx... Tried independence again... and that solved my problem as well!!!!
Pål - January 21, 2008 at 4:09pm
Missing step! after step ten, my phone is not unlocked until I run iNdependence once again. (Quit iTunes first) osX 10.4.11 iTunes 7.6 iPhone 1.1.2 week 43
Pål - January 21, 2008 at 4:03pm
Missing step! After step ten my iPhone didn't unlock (got out of restore mode). Opening the iNdependence-program once again solved the problem. But first quit iTunes. By the way - the red slider "slide to power off" did not show up for me (And iNdependence as has a new release for iTunes 7.6.) I'm running: osX 10.4.11 iTunes 7.6 iPhone shipped with 1.1.2 from week 43

Problem at step 8!!! Great guide... I've managed to jailbreak my friends iPhone out of the box, it now works wonderfully with a Stealth Sim. I then bought one myself that was allready jailbroken... As I didn't get it to work with my StealthSim i decided to reset the phone and do it myself... Already done it... What can go wrong? Well, everything!!!! At step 8, that ends with "Quit iTunes once the update is complete. " The phone goes in to restore mode again, and iTunes tells me the same thing... It's the update to 1.1.2 that seems to be the problem. As of now i've got an iBrick. Can anyone help me out here!!!
Fabio - January 21, 2008 at 12:17pm
Thanks for your guide , very usefull ! I've a question , I'm jailbreaking an 1.1.2/4.6 OTB's iPhone and now (01/21/08) at step eight when I need to ugrade to 1.1.2 version iTune ask me to upgrade to 1.1.3 version. I'm thinking to use the restore button to "upgrade" it but the guide say "don't click Restore button or you die"..... Anyone known if can I use the "Restore" button for upgrade my iPhone ? Thanks a lot Fabio

I've read too blog and web posts: does this method work for UK phones w/ OTB 1.1.2 firmware? My iPhone is produced week 45.
Danny - January 18, 2008 at 9:02pm
I've gotten so far and I'm proud of my self. I just bought my iphone yesterday OTB and currently on 1.1.2. I just did the firmware to 1.1.1 following the instructions. I'm currently in Independence and it's waiting for the connection with the iphone. It's been roughly 5 minutes and nothing yet. I'm still in the screen with the itunes logo and the usb cord. Any help would be appreciated. Also if anybody is willing to help via AIM please let me know. The faster the responses the faster I can get this done.... Thanks. Danny
daniel - January 18, 2008 at 2:56pm
the screen in the beggining of the video is not the OTB screen because on my iphone and which is week 50 1.1.2 (04.02.13_G) and OTB it shows the usb cable with an arrow pointing to the itunes logo?!?!?!?
dave - January 17, 2008 at 9:30pm

Drew - January 15, 2008 at 8:12pm
Just wanted to let you know this tutorial is the best on the web. Thanks for helping me with my iPhone, I'm one grateful Canuck
dave - January 15, 2008 at 9:50am
i have a week 52 iphone and i plan on using it for att so what do i have to do?i don't really care about unlocking just want to install 3rd party app ...you think i can just jailbreak it
bubba123321 - January 9, 2008 at 10:14pm
Worked like a charm. Thank you. It is not clear to me if my old ATT SIM card should work or not. I know the phone is not unlocked for ANYsim but i thought i might have a shot with my currently in use on a different phone ATT wireless SIM card. I have had it since before ATT became cingular. Any clarification would be appreciated. -Bubba
iClarified - January 8, 2008 at 7:03pm
Yes, just put the phone back into recovery mode and restore using iTunes to 1.1.2.
