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/

I have the same problem as Dana, I get a "Script execution error" when trying to install Anysim 1.3. Any idea what could be causing this? I used ZiPhone (the GUI version on windows) and am coming from an originally 1.0.2

Hello, I have just done everything as in guide. Baseband upgrade - ok changed the attributes of ..springboard.plist - ok anysim 1.1.3 run ok (succesful unlock) and now my phone does not work also not showing the Modem version... Any help?

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.
dagamer34 - February 10, 2008 at 3:34pm
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 :)

I did this and forgot to did the soft jailbrealk 1.1.3 now my phone seems to be bricked. I can not restore to 1.1.1 I have no internet what can I do from here. Please help
Jump - February 8, 2008 at 3:37pm
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
Rayven17 - February 7, 2008 at 2:31pm
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?
Omar - February 7, 2008 at 12:55pm
I did the Natetrue version for upgrading to 1.1.3...i had 1.1.1 before. It upgraded fine but for some reason my ringtones would not work... all sound comes from the phone but when i get a call it only vibrates! It wont even play the ringtone settings>sounds>ringtone... I then upgraded baseband, and used AnySim unlock 1.1.3. It unlocked and the process was flawless however, ringtones still do not work. Am i doing something wrong? Do i need to install something from the installer to fix this? please anyone help!!!!
AG - February 7, 2008 at 11:01am
just performed this method on my Nattrue jail broken 1.1.3. Went smoothly. No issues. Phone working perfectly. Thanks to zibree.

@ Appadmins: Installer > Sources (down, right side) > edit (upper right corner) > add (upper left corner) > (pay attention: no big I allowed) > OK. Then Installer > install > Tweaks 1.1.3 > ForwardMSGfix 1.1.3 Good Luck!

Must have BSD Subsystem installed or will not work.

I just wish to say that AnySIM 1.3 worked fine for me. My phone is working perfectly after following this tutorial. But I did my soft upgrade to 1.1.3 using the "Official 1.1.3 upgrader" from another source - and if you do that, DON'T UPDATE THE INSTALLER BEFORE INSTALLING BSD SUBSYSTEM or else you'll have to repeat the whole thing again!
cobai71 - February 7, 2008 at 1:38am
Help!… big problems now… after 1.1.3-3 & baseband update I've reinstalled OpenSSH & Terminal (as Terminal kept asking me about password) then I’ve changed passwd for SSH from “alpine”to something else… as my Terminal started to crash I unistalled it… then the nightmare started… Springboard keeps looping with “Edit home screen” and reseting… I can still SSH in the phone… so I've restored passwd to "alpine"... What should I do? (I have now firmware 1.1.3-3, baseband 04.03.13_G, bootloader 3.9, the springboard keeps reseting)
Dana - February 6, 2008 at 10:58pm
I have did everything right updated to 1.1.3 jailbroken already had 4.3.13G from where I accidently upgraded weeks ago but when I go to do the any sim 1.3 it said Main script execution failed and my phone want activate please help
Appadmins - February 6, 2008 at 10:09pm
Thanks for this very good doco. I have unlocked 1.1.3 with new baseband firmware. Everything is work. I have one question how can i turn off "Call forwarding active" pop-up. Many Thanks
cobai71 - February 6, 2008 at 6:17pm
IGOR... please help... 1. I cannot acces my Terminal after Official 1.1.3-3 upgrade (don't know the password and username now)... 2. I don't know how to rename that vars in order to make anySIM aware that I've checked Autolock - Never already... can you post the strings of command? Thank you :)

I have an OTB 1.1.1 that's unlocked using anySim and it's jailbroken. Can I do the softupgrade to 1.1.3 from the 1.1.2 update? Any ideas?
Justin - February 6, 2008 at 5:11pm
I had a 1.0.2 that was updated to 1.1.1 and then I used Nate's version to Softupdate my phone to 1.1.3, my phone was unlocked in using anySimi 1.1.2u so when I got to 1.1.3 I was already unlocked. Is there any benefit to me upgrading my phone to 3.9/4.03.13 from 3.9/4.02.13
shadow6265i - February 6, 2008 at 4:27pm
Hello!! I need help! I did the baseband upgrade and i installed anysim to unlock 1.1.3, but evrytime i start anysim it says that i have to restore the iphone because i didnt set the auto lock to never nut i did!! Please some help thank you!!!
PaNdA - February 6, 2008 at 1:08pm
I have a 1.1.1 OTB downgraded to 1.0.2 fully unlocked phone. I used this guide(mac version) yesterday and it WORKED!! except.... remember there was a step there in the 1.1.2 jailbreak guide (which was part of this guide, i just noticed it got changed) that u get a cable and itunes screen and u're in restore mode after the error code 1015 when restoring 1.1.1, and we'll have to use indeppendance to get it out of restore mode? that happened to be several times during the whole process such as 1. after i restored to 1.1.2 i get the 1015 code thing again and have to play around with the cable and independance again 2. towards the end of the 1.1.2 jailbreak it will rebbot ur iphone twice, then show a jailbreak completed message. What actually happened was, after it rebooted the first time, it went to the itunes and cable screen again, so i have to play around with the cable as well as independace again to get through that screen, then everything else worked other than the 1.1.2 jailbreak progress status never finished(probably because i unplugged the cable and plugged it back in) Anyhow, it did worked fine I'm just here to report problems incase someone else experience the same thing (Altho i noticed the guide is now simplified with the bootloader upgrade thing rather than the whole long progress ->update 1.1.3--->1.1.1 jailbreak-->1.1.2 jailbreak---> 1.1.3 jailbreak--->1.1.3 unlock ) Thanks!

Igor do you have a solution to your problem? I have the same...

Moving from varmobilelibrarypreferences to its root equivilent isn't working for me, I am using iBriker 0.91 to do it, is there a better way?
thania8 - February 6, 2008 at 6:33am
BL4.6 is not AnySIMmable nor turbosim works. I had a iTunes-updated phone to bring "back" to iPod, so I tried this way and all went well, even 1.1.3 Update went well - I cold-started the iPhone after one hour waiting with doing nothing. Finally it was 1.1.3, all works well - and I tried with turboSIM and started AnySIM 1.3. No phone even. I find it should been clear, that after 1.1.3 update as with this tutorial, you should install BossTool out of Utilities. I found this phone had only 3 MB memory left before, after font/ringtones and applications moving up to 38 MB.
Yho - February 6, 2008 at 6:21am
What would happen if i don't put my phone in airplane mode?Actually i did forget to put it on airplane mode but it's still working fine.
Igor - February 6, 2008 at 5:03am
SOLVED !!! It is very simple solution, the root cause is: anySIM 1.3 checks in /var/root/Library/Preferences/ 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/ to /var/root/Library/Preferences/ 3. Copy /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/ to /var/root/Library/Preferences/ 4. Set "Airplane mode" to ON. 5. run anySIM 1.3 (now it should run smoothly) 6. rename /var/root/Library/Preferences/ to /var/root/Library/Preferences/ 7. turn "Airplane mode" OFF Have Fun! Best Regards.

I have a BL 3.9. I updated my firmware to 1.1.3 (Official Dev Team Release). very thing when fine. then i tried upgraded my baseband to 04.03.13_G. Stilll fine. then i installed Anysim 1.3 to UNLOCK my phone. (thats when my life stopped). When i try to launch Anysim 1.3.
