NOTES***: If you are experiencing a problem with AnySIM telling you that your Auto-Lock is not set to never you can try this solution posted by iderzh. Thanks!

It is very simple solution, the root cause is: anySIM 1.3 checks in /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist file "SBAutoLockTime" value. So, if you used Official Dev Team 1.1.3 Upgrade this file was moved to /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/ .

Solution only for iPhone with 1.1.3 (Official Dev Team Release):
1. Set "Auto-Lock" to "Never"
2. Rename /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist to /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist.old
3. Copy /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist to /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist
4. Set "Airplane mode" to ON.
5. run anySIM 1.3 (now it should run smoothly)
6. rename /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist.old to /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist
7. turn "Airplane mode" OFF

Thanks for the tips -- one note though, when I had to copy the springboard plist from mobile's preferences to root's preferences, I had to chmod +r it too since it was originally set to not be world readable. that line is (for anyone else having trouble) after the copy step and it would be: chmod a+r /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist

Ok, for those of you that have been having problems installing the soft update and getting Ringtones to work, every where keeps talking about adding Tweaks 1.1.3 for Ringtones. But you can't find them anywhere. You need to install Bigboss's Beta/Experimental first and then do the tweak. Now, I have at least the standard ringtones on the phone.

Just a note: If you are following iClarified's tutorials to fully update your phone to 1.1.3, make sure to immediately install BossTools and check the free space left on your root partition. I have 2MB left after installing anySIM, and could not install any more programs. Required many cycles of restoring before I got my phone working again. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE FREE SPACE ON YOUR ROOT PARTITION! If you don't, installing apps will fail.

Followed directions with a few exceptions. I had to SSH in and fix the installer. Locate me on Maps is working now, too. However, ringtones aren't working yet. I even tried added the repo for the 1.1.3 Tweak but the fix isn't in. Any clues?

YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!! I did everything with the files provided by your repo. Soft-Upgrade 1.3 -> re-install BSD Subsystem -> Baseband Upgrade to 04.03.13_G -> Unlock with AnySim (having a 1.1.2 jailbreaked/unlocked phone with BL 3.9). Worked like a charm... the whole process took about an hour... The only thing I had to do is enter my voicemail-number again (*5005*86*my-voicemail-number#)... Thanks a lot for these awesome tutorials! (happy iPhone user from Switzerland here :)

maybe someone can answer. I have v1.1.1 OTB with BL 3.9. I uploaded Nate True's iBrickr. After that which is correct way to finish? #1 Soft update, #2 then baseband? Or is it baseband then soft update? I tried last night the soft update but 1.1.1 is still on phone and I had to perform a sync fix. After that, the phone doesnt see what's already on the phone so I may have to re-install 1.1.1. Any suggestions?

This works great. Thanks. I now have an unlocked phone with upgraded baseband on T-mobile. My only question is, does "My Location" still not work on T-mobile? I can't get it working.

For everybody having problems with anySIM "you must set auto-lock to never" isuue: after copying the apple.springboard.plist to var/root/Library/Preferences folder, makse sure that the PERMISSIONS of the springboard.plist FILE IS SET TO 755 (or at least to 744) so that the anySIM application can read the springboard.plist file. The file HAS to have the SUFFICENT PERMISSIONS for anySIM TO READ the file. thanks for reading

Thanks for all the info, but I have one problem. When I get to the part where I'm running AnySim 1.3 the process seems to get stuck on "stopping commcenter". I've left it for a few hours and nothing. Am I missing a step?
