Noob - I have a Mac - which is the best unlock method?
I am really sorry to be posting questions like this - I know that most people on here are way ahead of this but im really nervous about unlocking my virgin US 8GB Iphone which should arrive any day now onto UK Vodafone. I have found these 2 guides which seem to be the same (at least they use the same basic technologies):
Are these the best ways to unlock on a Mac? They both seem to take a long time and I have read that there are now faster unlock methods? Are these for Windows only? And finally, is there a new technique/new GUI method coming out in the next few days I should wait for?
And finally, there is a really worrying post on this forum about the unlock counter being reached. Does this only get reached if you use a scripted method? Maybe these manual slower methods are 'safer'?
Thanks so much,
1. make sure that you first upgrade to the latest version 1.02 firmware
2. use The latest version of independence to activate, jail break and add SSH to your iphone.
3. copy the unlock application over to your phone and run it.
4. you may have an error problem, if you do then restore phone and use independence to activate again and it should work.
I used the following method for mac, following it to the letter of the word and it worked like a treat with my UK Virgin sim card, takes about 25 - 30 minutes in all.
use firmware 1.0.2.
Apptapp (Latest version) and it shd be done.
