    Default Geohot hardware mod works in HongKong, zero scatch

    Spent 2 hours to open the case without any scratch
    - Tools: a rubber knife, a guitar pick, a hand with super strong finger power

    Spent 3 hours to let minicom run.... all available tutorials have missed some important information to let minicom to run...

    Spent 2 hours to let iunlocker run.... all available tutorials have missed some important information to let iunlocker to run...

    I can prove that Geo's method is ok for you to upgrade to FW 1.0.2 first before start.

    I used 2 needles method. However, I found that we still needed to clear the circuit coating on top of A17 line and expose it a bit, otherwise it is hard to let the needle to contact the A17 line.

    Anyway, thanks to Geo, I can throw out my TSIM.
    For all HK guys, this method work perfectly in HK, I have tested the following carriers:
    - PEOPLES (Of coz for most iPhoner)
    - SUNDAY/PCCW
    - 3

    Hi garyz88, congratulations on your iPhone unlock!

    I am in Hong Kong as well, since you don't need the Turbo Sim anymore, would you consider selling it to me?

    (Please check your PM, thanks!)

    Anyway, I want to help you guys in HK...
    but it's real that it got very high chance to hurt the case... and damage the iPhone forever.

    It is very high risk for me to mod your iPhone.....
    What if I damage your one? Will you kill me?

    And I can tell you that.... opening the iPhone case is very very very hard (the hardest step among others, it will let you give up at the very first beginning).

    Actually, I have hurt 3 fingers, very painful now, can't do the case opening again without 1 week for rest.

    God damn AT&T....

    I've only opened the antenna cover, that took me an hour. once i saw the almost-welded-together case backing, I gave up. I'll wait for my TSIM or software unlock.

    Hotman1999,
    As I have said it got very high chance to hurt the case... and damage the iPhone forever.

    It is very high risk for me to mod your iPhone.....
    What if I damage your one? Will you kill me?

    So, it is not a good business for me to take the risk for damaging an iPhone ($6500?) against your hundred dollars mod fee....

    Its true that... the beauty of this mod is:
    - you did not need a TurboSIM, and
    - you did not need to cut the SIM card, just plug-in any SIM Card.... it rocks!
    - you did not need any extra money instead of buying iPhone
    - Enjoy the DIY
