    Lightbulb iPhone unlocking and activation bypass roundup

    Hi all,

    While searching for good way to remove the iPhone's SIM lock I found that there are quite a lot ways to do it, and even more scams. A good roundup would be great so I wrote one: http://coolblog.profit42.com/2007/09...ypass-roundup/

    Please tell me what you think about it and please digg the guide if you like it: http://digg.com/apple/iPhone_unlocki...undup_profit42

    (note: I'm still waiting for my iPhone to arrive so I couldn't test anything written in the guide, though after reading a lot I think that all the stuff works)

    --------- if you don't want to startup the site, here's the article: --------

    Activation bypass methods (no sim unlock)

    MAC: iNdependence (the new iActivator)

    iNdependence is a Cocoa-based application for Mac OS X which provides an easy-to-use interface for jailbreak, activation, SSH installation, and ringtone/wallpaper/application installation on your iPhone. It’s open source under the GNU v2 license.

    WIN: “Draken’s way”

    Since there’s no working one-click-activation program for Windows yet user Draken from the hackint0sh forums wrote great two step guide for Windows users, which will take you from a brand new Iphone to a fully activated Iphone without hassle!

    Sim-unlock methods (don’t forget to show off afterwards!)

    MAC/WIN: The SuperSIM method

    With this method you change some things on your own providers SIM card to fool the iPhone, it’ll think that you inserted the AT&T SIM card. The method is a little bit expensive because you have to buy a SIM card reader/writer and a supersim, though with this method you don’t have to unscrew screws and “can’t” destroy the phone (note: this only works on “old” V1 simcards).

    MAC/WIN: The TurboSIM method

    You can’t fool the iPod by writing AT&T on your SIM card, though you can with this method (since the turbosim is sold out this can get a little expensive…).

    MAC/WIN: The Hypersim / PSS SIM Kit method

    This method is similar to the TurboSIM one, though hyper cards are easier to get and way easier to program (thanks to PSLiNK for the tip)

    MAC/WIN: Hardware unlock

    Difficult and dangerous, you can end up with an exploding iPod (ow, yeah, before trying this, read the disclaimer).

    MAC/WIN: Software Unlock

    Jailbreak the iPhone, bypass the activation, install this program and unlock the iPhone! Confirmed working by engadget and gizmodo, though it costs 100$ and you have to give them your IMEI...

    There's also the PSS Sim Kit method. Similar to TurboSim but way easier to program.

    I think something.. You have to jailbreak the phone. jailbreak process requires to download Apple firmware from somewhere. Its not designed for "any" user ("any" user can brick iPhone doin jailbreak process, dont u think?)

    You can jailbreak the iphone quite easy with iNdependence (it involves downloading the program and clicking one button), I'm sure that there are also easy windows methods available, otherwise you can install osx86 and....

    (again, I can't test it because I don't have an iphone yet... tell me if I'm understanding something terribly wrong)

    Has anyone tried the pqdvd's unlock toolkit? It's no a sumunlock but it's definitely for windows and it seems to be a one-click solution. My iphone's on it's way, so I'll prolly test it myself, but in the meantime, any info would be great!

    I have, it works perfectly, but as you said it's only an activation, not an unlock.

    Hi,

    You might want to replcace "Draken's Way" by "Point and Click Activation with Youtube", since it's the original name:
