    Default [Advice] Which Method/Program ?

    Hey Guys, I need a little bit of help with my Iphone. I have bought a brand new 1.1.2 Iphone a few months back, and have unlocked it with this method (http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=18284) and then bought a stealthsim and now working fine. Now what I want to do is unlock my Iphone without using the stealthsim, so I just insert my sim and it works...I undersatnd that I could do that.

    Could somebody point me in the right direction please..thank you.

    Search for winpwn for windows or pwnage tool for mac.
    iLiberty is also good but I would personally avoid Ziphone. Have a search and decide for yourself.

    It's pretty easy. Make sure you have the latest iTunes running on your Mac/Windows-PC. Connect the iPhone with your PC, iTunes will "see" the iPhone. Restore to firmware 1.1.4. After that you will ahve a locked 1.1.4 iPhone.
    Check the "Unlock" section in this forum for the sticky on "iLiberty" and the pwnage section for the sticky on "FAQ Pwnage".
    Make your choice, both are good tools. Just do not use ZiPhone, it may screw up your phone.

    If you got any questions, just post back.

    Hope that helps,

    Thanks man, your help is much appreciated....And just to be sure...I need to (SHIFT + RESTORE) my IPhone to 1.1.4 using the .ipsw file using Itunes, right? And one last thing, Which Itunes version would be best, is it the latest?

    When you Shift-Update (Windows) or Option-Update (Mac) iTunes will pop up a dialog and let you choose manually a firmware file that has to be sitting on your PC.

    If you just hit restore, iTunes checks which firmware file you have (local inside of an iTunes directory), connects with the Apple server and compares both versions. If the same, the local one is used.
    If not, it is downloading the latest from the server.
    For us, beeing on hacked iphones it is always a good habbit, to shift-retore. This way you make sure, you exactly restore to the version (you downloaded manually before) that you want to have. If you dont - this is just theoretically - you could end up with firmware 2.0 and a locked iPhone. Will be the case in a few days, btw

    So, in short, yes shift-restore to 1.1.4.

    And yes, I would make sure to use the latest version of iTunes on my PC.

    One more hint: I created a folder in my home directory called "firmware files". Links for downloading the firmware files from Apple manually are here:
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=22056
    I downloaded the recent version(s) to my PC and copied them into the created folder for later use. Thats the one I always Shift-restore to ;-)

    Best,

    Hi All, I have used the methods mentione above and am at 1.1.4. Recently I changed the WEP key on my router..so i changed it also on my iphone...but now, the wifi is saying that it's connected...but i can't access the internet, so i changed the WEP key on the router to the old one...and changed it also on the iphone, and it's still not working...although it says connected. Any ideas? Should I restore? But if I restore, I have to unlock the iphone again and I have to get wifi working again. What if I restore and can't access internet on the iphone? will I be stuck? Any help appreciated..thank you.
