    Default What to do, how to proceed when u don't know anything about unlock method used?

    I bought my phone when they came out on Ebay, i'm on 1.0.2 software, from what i've been reading here i should upgrade to 1.1.2...But i know NOTHING of the method that was used to unlock my phone initially... The only thing i know is that i can get into it directly by using Ibrikr .

    Should i stick with 1.0.2 and continue on my way, or upgrade it ? It is working fine right now, no problems. Should i go with the moto " If it's not broken don't fix it " ? I just don't want to be stuck with a phone that i can't upgrade anymore because the files are too old...

    I can tell you from my own experience it's not easy and it time consuming. First of all, you need to decide if you have the programming skills to upgrade your iPhone. Some of the guides are easier to understand than others. I would recommend you study them carefully. Also, you need to know if you are going do it on windows, mac, or wifi only.

    The most tedious and difficult process I did was revirginize my iPhone to upgrade to FW 1.1.1., but I am happy I accomblished it. It was truly a learning experience.


    Good Luck to you.

    when i got mine i screwed up so bad that i actually put mine on ebay as a ruined iphone, i had tried about 9 times to follow guides, but mmy first attempt really did shoot me in the foot

    i gave it one last try, and it worked, by this time someone had won the phone and but it was okay and nothing bad happened, ive never learnt so much stuff so quickly

    i never had heard of winscp, ssh and had never done any programming or such, didnt even know what firmware was but i did fix it, it is amazing what you can learn when you NEED to.

    you often dont know how to fix problems until they come up!!

    tho considering the effort and time i put in im still at 102 for fear of getting that damn triangle again!

    How about asking someone skilled in this to do it for you ?

    I won't mind to pay extra bucks when i can get something done without risking to mess it up myself.

    My advice to you is - if the phone is working fine and there are no issues and it also does everything you want it too, then stick with 1.0.2. If the 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 firmware has stuff you need (fixes/new features) and can't live without them, then upgrade.

    Regardless of whatever the current firmware version is, you can grab the individual older firmware updates (links are all over) and then get iTunes to update to them using SHIFT + restore button in Windows for example. So whenever you want to do the upgrade you can. Even if iTunes is showing the latest firmware is 1.5.0 or something.

    My cousin got an unlocked iPhone from Singapore and he wanted to upgrade it. We were unsure about the method used, but the info posted by "element" here http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=16165 really helped and we were then able to work out how to do the upgrade. It isn't for the faint hearted, but at least by using this method you know whether the person used a commercial or free unlock method and so it won't screw things up when you try and update.
