Instructions on how to unlock your 1.1.2 OTB and 1.1.3 OTB iPhone!

These instructions assume that you have already jailbroken the particular firmware you would like to be on. This works from 1.1.2 or 1.1.3 firmware! You can find instructions on how to do that here:

Jailbreak 1.1.2: Windows, Mac
Jailbreak 1.1.3: Installer, Windows, Mac
Downgrade 1.1.3: Windows, Mac

Also, you can only follow these instructions if you are on a 4.6 BL iPhone. This means that your iPhone came with 1.1.2 or 1.1.3 Out of the Box. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DON'T DO THIS ON A 3.9 BL IPHONE!

IMPORTANT*: You must have enough disk space free on your iPhone to install this package. Otherwise Installer may display a beach ball and then crash to the Springboard. You need space free on your ROOT file system. Your root file system is about 267M-300M in size. Its NOT the 7.3G file system! A tutorial on how to do this can be found here

Finally, you need BSD Subsystem Installed from Installer app (System Category). This most likely will already be installed especially if you did the 1.1.3 soft update...

If you have 1.1.3 OTB follow the downgrade link above to downgrade and jailbreak your iPhone.

Step One
Add iClarified to your Installer sources. You can find instructions on how to do that: here

Step Two
Press the Settings icon on your Springboard.

You are done! Unlocked iPhone :) Huge thanks go to Geohot for developing this. He truely is a genius. You can donate to him: here.

NOTES**: I personally tested this on my 1.1.2 OTB iPhone which was DEV updated to 1.1.3! Also it has been tested on 1.1.3 OTB by Viper! (Thanks!).

Also, if you are having a problem with your dialer crashing after this tutorial, it is likely that you are in an unsupported country. Either install iWorld from Installer or preferably add your country to AppSupport. You can do this by following this tutorial: How to Add an Unsupported Country to App Support

hi, I happened to bmtusle across your site and found it really awesome!! Its really great to see some one utilising their knowledge, experience, and resources for the benefit, and that too in such a unique way. A brilliant idea! I would really be happy if I can contribute and would like to get involved in this initiative actively and not just by donating. Incidentally I happen to reside in kothrud, Pune (India). Hope to hear from you guys, Regards,Sneha DasTelecom Engineer, Idea Cellular Ltd.

I know this is coming out of left field, but I'm a cievmtitope ultimate frisbee player and I would love to see Cleatology expanded into a resource that covers not just soccer, but football and lacrosse cleats as well. I know the requirements and desirable characteristics aren't the same across all these sports, but I find the review resources for non-soccer cleats to be woefully sparse and I think there's a great opportunity here. Whatever you decide to do, I'm excited to see what Cleatology bears and wish you the best of luck!

I unlocked my phone about 5 months ago and then one morning i tried using it and it crashed and now it is stuck on the iClarified screen. Every 5 to 6 mins it trys to restart itself until the battery dies, so what should i do. Because the computers i try to unlock it with doesn't even notice that my phone is connected. i want my phone to work.

Works Great! Just jailbroke and unlock my iphone 1.1.2 took about an hour to go through the process. Had to redo a couple of steps but it worked and the best part is it was all done for free!

Thanks iClarified for this tutorial... I just bought an iPhone yesterday (Mar 07) and it came with 1.1.3 OTB, so I went to iTunes and Restore to 1.1.3 (I didn't know why but I did it!) then I set it on recovery mode and execute ZiPhone 2.0 with the options Activate, Jailbreak and Verbose; once it finished, I installed BSD Subsystem and OpenSHH, then I followed this tutorial and that's all... an 1.1.3 OTB iPhone uncloked! Thanks again!

aditya - March 1, 2008 at 6:14am
rick...can u tell me how can i find out wat the source for big boss would be...any website or anythin?
Rick - February 29, 2008 at 5:36pm
@aditya - you need to find out about the address for the BigBoss souce : I can see only part of the address... - not sure if it's longer than that. There is also a program called fix disc that is supposed to move files too but I have never used it. I hope that helps
aditya - February 29, 2008 at 8:39am
i still cant find Boss Tools. can i do anythind else to get boss tools?
Rick - February 29, 2008 at 7:42am
@ aditya - If you cannot find BossTool then add the source and then refresh all your sources. @ kiran - try resetting all your settings - Settings --> General --> Reset I hope that helps
Mark - February 29, 2008 at 7:39am

kiran - February 29, 2008 at 6:29am
Dear Sir , I have 1.1.2 phone and am staying in india , i unlocked the iphone and installed BSD subsystem , the Patch for unsupported countries and then volume patch but the problem with my phone is as soon as i recharge the phone , the phone becomes hot after that the volume during calls is very low , some times only i can receive the calls , and if i reply to them , they say that the voice is very low or muted and viceversa is there any problem with the software or settings , if there is any solution please mail me thanq (you people are doing great job ) cheers kiran
