    Default Official, Consolidated iPhone Hack Unlock Thread

    I have been bouncing around the internet, and here is some consolidated info about unlocking/hacking the iPhone. Someone should start a skypecast. You need skype and a windows box to host one.

    Consolidated iPhone Hacking Info:

    Removing the SIM card from http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=1191069:

    Pictures won't show here.

    "Insert the end of a small paper clip into the hole on the SIM tray. Press firmly and push it straight in until the tray pops out."







    Alright, I did some swapping this morning, and below is what I have found out. In summary, the iPhone SIM, once activated seems to work fine in unlocked and newer and older AT&T/Cingular phones that are locked. Other AT&T/Cingular SIM cards will not work until activated with iPhone plans. They connect, can't dial. iTunes will let you activated it. Non AT&T/Cingular SIM cards will not work at all.*

    So, this phone has almost a double-lock on it. You have your standard GSM subsidy lock, but you also have some sort of mechanism that is tying the SIM card to the phone. This latter one I'm sure someone will figure out how to work around soon.*

    Phones:
    iPhone (activated) 8gb Locked to AT&T/Cingular
    Treo 680 GSM Unlocked & unbranded
    SonyEricsson Z520 Locked to Cingular
    SonyEricsson W600i Locked to Cingular

    SIMs:
    iPhone "AT&T 3g SIM" - Activated
    Cingular 3g SIM - Prepaid (looks just like AT&T Sim minus logo)
    Cingular 64k "Smartchip" Sim
    Vondafone UK SIM
    OldSkool AT&T SIM

    Yes = Works*
    No = Does Not Work

    iPhone
    YES - iPhone "AT&T 3g SIM"
    NO - Cingular 3g SIM - Prepaid (looks just like AT&T Sim minus logo) - Same as below
    NO - Cingular 64k "Smartchip" Sim - Gets a "Incorrect SIM please connect to iTunes to reactivate phone" It does let me use phone features, just fails when trying to dial. It does connect to AT&T.
    NO - Vondafone UK SIM - "Incorrect SIM, The iPhone must be used with an approved SIM" This is a different message than using another CINGULAR/ATT Sim. This is the GSM "lock"
    NO - OldSkool AT&T SIM - Same message as Vodafone SIM

    Treo 680
    YES - iPhone "AT&T 3g SIM"
    YES - Cingular 3g SIM - Prepaid (looks just like AT&T Sim minus logo)
    YES - Cingular 64k "Smartchip" Sim
    YES - Vondafone UK SIM
    YES - Oldskool AT&T SIM (won't connect to network though, it's deativated)

    Sony Ericsson Z520
    YES - iPhone "AT&T 3g SIM"
    YES - Cingular 3g SIM - Prepaid (looks just like AT&T Sim minus logo)
    YES - Cingular 64k "Smartchip" Sim
    NO - Vondafone UK SIM
    NO - Oldskool AT&T SIM

    Sony Ericsson W600i
    YES - iPhone "AT&T 3g SIM"
    YES - Cingular 3g SIM - Prepaid (looks just like AT&T Sim minus logo)
    YES - Cingular 64k "Smartchip" Sim
    NO - Vondafone UK SIM
    NO - Oldskool AT&T SIM

    You can Still use other things without SIM (after it is activated)


    You can still play music and use other features with invalid SIM

    From Mac Rumors:

    All current claims to people owning an unlocked iPhone are false. To this date no one I am aware of has successfully unlocked an iPhone. I purchased an iPhone at 6 yesterday with the sole purpose of unlocking it. I have T-Mobile and have zero intention of switching to AT&T. So, I'm looking for the community who is currently trying to unlock it. I was involved in the uncrippling the V710 project and was impressed by the people I met.

    I'm hoping we could get a sticky thread going with all the current progress made. Maybe this thread :-)

    Here is the progress I have made so far. My friend purchased an iPhone as well yesterday and let me run a USB sniffer while he was activating it. Here is that log. You can view it with SnoopyPro. Currently, I cannot even get my iPhone off the main screen saying I need to activate it. That is the first step towards an unlock. I'm surprised no one has really started hacking it yet; where are the firmware dumps, does it have seems, where is the unlocked status stored? Post whatever you can find out. My sn is "imgeohot". If this community is as good as the V710 community, we can have this thing unlocked in a week.

    The iPhone is an amazing device, let's bring it to the AT&T free masses. I am looking for the "they" people claim will unlock the iPhone and actually will work on it.

    This is a crosspost from HoFo

    From hackint0sh:

    I've got my iPhone, it's activated, and I've been doing some rudimentary analysis of what's going on with it. I doubt I'll be able to accomplish the Holy Grail myself - loading 3rd party apps to do whatever you want (portable gaming platform ahoy!) But I bought my iPhone in the hopes that it'll eventually happen, and I'd like to help the hacking community get to that point however I can.

    Here's what I've found so far.

    When you update iTunes to 7.3, a PrivateFramework called MobileDevice.framework gets installed in /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks. Four applications are inside it, aside from the library binary itself: AppleMobileDeviceHelper.app, AppleMobileSync.app, reenumerate, and usbmuxd. These applications, from a cursory analysis (i.e. strings ), seem to have tons of debugging info left in them.

    When I sync my iPhone, iTunes throws this into the Console:

    Created child with pid 788...
    Starting child at /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework/Resources/ AppleMobileDeviceHelper.app/Contents/MacOS/AppleMobileDeviceHelper, setting input fd to 27, output fd to 33 and closing all other pipes
    Created args array of size 5
    Child /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework/Resources/ AppleMobileDeviceHelper.app/Contents/MacOS/AppleMobileDeviceHelper starting up, argc is 4...
    arg[0] = /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework/Resources/ AppleMobileDeviceHelper.app/Contents/MacOS/AppleMobileDeviceHelper
    arg[1] = --pipe
    arg[2] = 27
    arg[3] = 33
    Created child to sync device with pid 789...
    Waiter has started running...
    Created unique process name from name AppleMobileSync, process name AppleMobileSync: AppleMobileSync.FD62FB24-08FA-4FD6-B7FC-6566D9F5229D

    So in order to mess with the iPhone, iTunes calls "AppleMobileDeviceHelper --pipe [input pipe] [output pipe]", which I assume to just be plain old unix file descriptors. Someone should sniff the data running over those pipes to get started.

    -Hi
    I did a port scan and found something running on port 62078

    Don't know what it is, and when ever you connect, it cuts the connection right away.

    Any ideas?

    -We managed to obtain and crack the hashs of the user passwords for the iPhone OS. More information could be found at our development Wiki here (link removed).

    Edit: cause you digg people broke the poor wiki:

    The password for root is "alpine"
    The "mobile" user accounts password is "dottie"

    Is it sick to have root pasword to all iPhones worldwide? Well not really, there is no terminal yet to login

    -FWIW - I can also confirm that the iPhone is not an any way locked to the SIM it is shipped with prior to activation.

    I was having activation issues, and after numerous phone calls and trips to ATT store, they finally swapped out the SIM (which fixed the problem).

    iPhone Restore image download:

    This ipsw file is actually a zip file. Rename it .zip and unarchive. You will get two disk images, a system software dmg and a user dmg (from what I can tell). The system software dmg is password protected

    There are also a few files compressed using the compzlss thing as on AppleTV.

    Happy Hacking!!!!

    Just to note, I couldn't download it in Safari, but "curl -O http://..." worked for me.

    I have an iPhone to dedicate to testing, so if anyone needs info from it (i.e. IMEI) I will forward it to you.

    have you tried iphoneunlocking.com in order to get past the GSM lock as a 1st step???

    i think it's worth a shot... they only need the imei and yor email.... i think it's $19 once it's past beta stage for the iphone...

    the comapny behind this is uniquephones that unlocks 1500 GSM phone models...

    have your tired them???

    since they state they're in beta....???

    i have tried other sim lock sites, one in GB before and it worked perfectly...

    the sim lock is GSM based, not osX... when the sim lock is gone that's no guarantee that the iphone will sync with itunes... then you guys come into place;-)

    and if they're so fake, why did they have dozens of people do guerilla marketing in NYC...??? apple even told them to leave their premises...

    Need some clear view here. I think there are a lot of ppl still misunderstand about phone locking. There are 2 mechanisms here:
    1. SIM lock -> phone is lock to specific SIM card -> without that SIM, the phone is birck.
    2. Network lock -> phone is lock to specific network provider.

    In GSM phone there are 2 mechanisms exist and the SIM lock is more strict. The unlocking process is actually clear the lock code via the baseband processor. The detail process is varies from phone to phone.
    One of the most famous unlocking events is the release of unlock code generator for Nokia BB5 - series by the GSM master Dejan.

    Iphoneunlocking.com is FAKE!

    It's from an old 'friend' of mine (from UK not US) who specializes in selling free unlock solutions..
    He does not have the knowledge to unlock this phone.. The 'unlock counter' on his page is only a stupid php script which increases everytime you enter the page with a random number.

    The phone is based on a s-gold2 platform and similiar to panasonic 705p (according to Kevbodian) and currently no public unlock solution.. I do believe more in the people who can deliver unlocked Iphones, this because I got this info via more trustfull sources...

    I was checking my bill on AT&T's website and I had an option marked UNBLOCK SIM CARD on my Phone/Device screen.

    When I click it, I get an 8 digit PUK code and instructions on how to unblock my sim card.

    The PUK codes for my 2 iphones are completely different.

    I don't know if this has been covered - I did a search and didn't find anything about this. Maybe this could help unlock these phones... (or maybe it is something completely different and I have no idea what I am talking about).

    Whoa right there!

    The PUK code is an alltogether different thing we're talking about. Basically, you need the PUK code only after you've managed to enter incorrectly your PIN code 3 times in a row.

    At that point the SIM card is locked - you can't use it, you can't perform any operations on it, until you enter the PUK code.

    The PUK code won't unlock anything else but a PIN-locked SIM card. It won't unlock your phone off the network it's supposed to be on, it won't unlock the phone off the SIM it is attached to, if that is the case...
