    Default From the Box to Unlock--Winodws

    I have been reading all the tutorials for unlocking, jailbreaking, activation etc.. and I am still very confused. I want to make sure I have a clear udnerstanding of the jailbreak, activation and unlock methods before getting my iphone.

    What I understand so far:

    1.)The phone needs to be upgraded to 1.02 (but what is the best way to do this. Just use Itunes and do nothing duringthe upgrade or do I have to start and stop itunes and use other software etc..)
    2.)The phone needs to be jailbreaked using iBrickr for Windows.(I have read saying you need itunes 7.4 but ibrickr does not work with 7.4)
    3.)Once it is jailbreaked you can use the new GUI method and that should be all you need to do to unlock the phone.
    3a.)You can use a manual method like at http://iphone.unlock.no/ (I have no idea where to get BSD since I dont have a MAC and what communite services are)

    I guess what I am looking for is an up to date and accurate way to take the iphone from box to unlock.

    I think the biggest confusion comes from upgrading to 1.02 and what method should be used (one that is compatible with the new free unlock).

    How do I activate the iphone and what method do I use. Do i just connect to Itunes and let it upgrade my phone to 1.02 then activate it through itunes as well or do i stop the itunes acitvation process and activate it another way?



    Thanks,

    Same here. I am also a little confused regarding the whole process. It would be really great if some one could please provide a step-by-step IDIOT PROOF GUIDE to unlock the iPhone from the BOX to Complete Unlock, offcourse for both Windows and Mac.

    I can understand that Devs team is very busy in fine tuning the software unlock for all of us and I salute them for all their extreme hard work for past couple of months to provide us all with a free unlock solution. However it would be really great, whenever they get time, if some one (if possible from Devs team) can create a step-by-step guide to avoid confusion for many non tech savy people. I would assume it would include all steps from jail breaking to software upload to unlock along with all the links to the software/applications/files that are needed for the unlock.

    Once again thanks to Devs team who has right now defined true definition of hackers.

    BRAVO!!!

    The dev team has done a great job. It is amazing how soon they did this.

    I just hope that some nice folks can put together or respond to this post with a step by step process for taking the phone from box to unlock.

    I am just unsure about man steps and what is all needed and what apps I need (BSD, SSH etc..).

    I dont want to buy the iphone until I feel confident I can unlock it.

    Thanks,

    Windows Unlock Pre-Reqs:
    1) restore to 1.0.2 (iTunes 7.4 okay if phone is new/unmodded or provided you restored w/ 7.3 prior to upgrading)
    (kill iTunes and iTunesHelper)
    2) Jailbreak using whatever method you can (7.3/7.4 methods respectively)
    3) Run activation script titled "point and click activation (with youtube)"
    (http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/show...indows+youtube)
    then unlock following instructions, if BSD needed simply install AppTap: http://iphone.nullriver.com/beta/

    Mac Unlock Pre-Reqs:
    1) restore to 1.0.2 (iTunes 7.4 okay provided you restored w/ 7.3 prior to upgrading)
    (kill iTunes and iTunesHelper)
    2) Install AppTap (7.3/7.4 installer versions differ, http://iphone.nullriver.com/beta/)
    3) Run activation script titled "youtubescript"
    (http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=5582)
    ..then unlock following instructions

    Ok, for Windows:


    1. Download iTunes 7.4.1.
    2. Press Power Button and Home Button at the same time until you see the Connect to iTunes logo, then plug it in the dock
    3. When iTunes opens, recover the phone. This will automatically download the 1.02 update that AppTapp needs and upgrade your phone in the meantime. Note that for a brand new installation unless you do this step, AppTapp will fail.
    4. After phone has been recovered close iTunes and run AppTapp.
    5. Download the Paycay app and run
    6. Install ibrickr
    7. use Installer to install PXL
    8. used iBrickr to upload unlock.pxl
    9. run unlock.pxl

    10. Done

    All the apps you need are here - http://p.tehinternets.co.uk/index.ph...cD90PTYwMjc%3D

    Are all those steps done off windows or through the phone? I am assuming its off windows but I have no idea.
