How to Unlock Your iPhone With iLiberty+ (Windows)

Posted March 26, 2008 at 6:51pm by iClarified
These are instructions on how to unlock, jailbreak and activate your iPhone using iLiberty+ and Windows.

Before following these instructions you should have already restored your iPhone to 1.1.4 using iTunes. You should have the iPhone connected to your dock/computer and iTunes should have detected the iPhone after restore at least one once!

You can find a Mac version of the tutorial here

Step One
Download iLiberty+ 1.2 from here or here to your desktop.

Step Two
Double click the downloaded file (iLibertySetup_1.2.0.65.exe) on your desktop to launch the install program.

Check the operations you would like to perform. If you are unlocking you would most likely choose all 5 options!

Step Ten
Click to select the Payloads tab. From here you can select additional payloads to install while unlocking or jailbreaking. We will leave this alone for now and go back to the Standard tab. Note***: A tutorial on how to download and install payloads will be posted in the near future.

Step Eleven
Click the Go for it! button from the Standard Tab to begin.

Next I got a message that asked me to disconnect then reconnect my iPhone and click the OK button.

Step Twelve
You will then notice a status bar appear. Unfortunately, mine only displayed until around 13% and then disappeared. No worries though, the unlock procedure continued and finished successfully. I was not notified that it did by the software. Just watch your iPhone until it comes to rest at the "Slide to unlock" screen.

Hi, I had un unlocked iphone 3G. I accidentally (!!) upgraded it to 3.1 OS via iTunes when all I wanted was to back up the contents of the phone to my PC. Of course, it is now locked, I can't even open it as it asks me to connect again to iTunes and have acompatible sim card. What options should I check on the iLiberty installation. Thank you.

to anyone who will experience ERROR 1604 (restoring from original iphone 2g jailbreak). Just try to downgrade your firmware from 2.0 to 1.1.4 using itune7.5 and unlock using iliberty. Good luck. Uninstall all programs like itune7.7 and winpwn2.0.0.3. You will need installer like iTunes75Setup.exe, iTunes7.7.1.exe, iPhone1,1_1.1.4_4A102_Restore.ipsw and iLibertySetup_1.2.1.78.exe. my iphone works fine now using the firmware 1.1.4 unlock/activated. you will need this website for downgrade ( and unlock ( also from iClarified. Im using WinXP SP2 computer.

Hey if you have itunes version 8.0 the firmware version will be 2.0, there for the unlocking process will not work cause the highest it can go up to is 1.1.4 so my main question is how do you downgrade your itunes or where can i get another 7.6 itunes version from? So the unlocking will work?

Need help please. I installed the iLiberty and had no problems. Already set up my phone with some pretty cool apps. I have run into one problem, I can't access my email any more. I used all the different programs except the unlock phone one. Not sure if anyone has had this problem as well but any help would be appreciated.

Hi. Great tutorial, i'm gonna use it when i get my iPhone, by the way, when i'm gonna use it the first time, can i install other payloads at the same time, or should I jailbreak, unlock, activate, install and then install the other payloads??? :D

I just wanted to thank u for the great effort and for sharing it with us..
Chuck - April 18, 2008 at 4:50pm
Hey the worst program to use is Ziphone since it changes the bootloader from 4.6 to 3.9 and you can`t change it back. iliberty and iplus both give you 3.9FB which can be changed back. I was wondering if anyone tried using iliberty+ with an itouch 1.1.4 16gb?

I have accidentally removed installer from my iphone when I was using my Winscp. Everything on my iphone is alright except for installer. Does anyone know how to use install the installer back? I have a 1.1.4 iphone. I was trying to use iliberty to just install the installer back but it doesn't let me to unclick the jailbreak option. I didn't wanna restore the whole phone because my phone has already jail-broken & it's only the installer that I am missing. I have also visisted the nullriver site to download the installer zip file but seems like the link for firmware 1.1.4 has been removed. Please help !!!

Leandro Fonseca - April 14, 2008 at 12:11am
Fellows, I´ve used iliberty+ to unlock/jailbreak and activate my iPhone, but I installed Cydia on it and now I can´t install the applications from iClarified Repository! How do you do to install the old and good Installer to my iPhone? I´ve tried the, but it does not work! Please help, I want to keep following your tutorials, but with just Cydia it is not possible! Thanks!
