    Just want to confirm that this method does indeed work fine with my UK/Euro 1.1.2 OTB iPhone. I waited a few days before deciding to jump in just to be sure - and although I was a little 'stressed out' not being sure if it would actually work.. 30 minutes of taking it slowly got it working fine on my via my Windows system.

    Just make sure any windows users download "iBrick" .. this *will* see your iPhone and bring it back to life when it appears (purposely) to be dead. Be prepared for the iPhone "plug-in" screen to turn red (good sign!) and it will then reboot to your new firmware; thats the hard part really.. or the worrying bit (but it will go fine!) ..

    What else, .. other than that it really is not that hard at all to pull off.. the difficult bit for me was getting the bloody sim out the iPhone and putting my newly purchased O2 PAYG in (after backing up and replacing the lockdown file) .. I then wondered if it had all been for nothing, turned the phone completely off.. back on again and boom .. it searched and found O2 and works beautifully from the few calls I have made.

    I was a little cheesed off before starting as I asked a question in an IRC channel and some buy told me that it this method would definitely not work as he had tried it.. bollocks to him! - The hard part was entering the digits in correctly on the keypad (for me!) well .. remembering the sequence -)

    Anyone who's thinking of attempting it - just do it! Don't spend a week fannying around worrying; Windows users that is!

    Hi,

    Which firmware version is this 04.02. 13_G purchased from apple london? Is it 1.1.2? If so, I'd like to wait for the proper unlock to it instead of downgrading to 1.1.1.
    I was wondering if i can activate it for the time being or is there some sort of specific activation procedure before proceeding to unlock?

    Thanks a lot.

    Just an update on the iTunes not seeing the phone issue...

    Solved it by using a different lockdown file... Doh! I missed the link in the original instructions and found a different version. Definitely a case of RTFM first.

    Also important to change the file permissions with WinSCP.

    All hunky dorey now and very pleased with the result.

    Ok I will try to clarify the steps I took and how they differ slightly from the steps on page 1 of this thread. Here goes:

    5) You will then get an error: 'The iPhone could not be restored. An unknown error
    occured (1015)' DONT PANIC! This is good lol! It means you've successfully
    restored to 1.1.1, proceed to step 6.
    Ok, when I did this step the error message popped up but when I dismissed it the iphone showed the connector lead and the itunes icon, hinting that it had lost connection to iTunes. What you need to do here is open activity monitor in system prefs, unplug the iphone, kill ituneshelper application and then plug the phone back in. I didn't need to kill iTunes or even close it for that matter.

    It seems you need to download the iNdependence beta 1.3b as this is the only package that seems to have the mod dev tool included. If you are using iTunes 7.5 (which I did) you WILL need to follow this step in the FAQS:

    Q) INDependence is asking for MobileDevice / INDependence is saying I dont have the correct version of iTunes.
    A) Okey, simple solution for this. Down the MobileDevice file (Click Here), unzip this in your INDependence folder. Now run the independence mob dev tool, to tell it where the mobiledevice folder is, and also tell it where the independence app is. (Look carefully on the mob dev app 'window' if you dont understand)
    I'm fairly certain that if you have the same problem as me above you shouldn't need independence to kick the iphone out of this mode, killing ituneshelper and replugging the phone worked nicely.

    Finally, instead of following all individual instructions in step 4 all you should need to do is download the latest jailbreak 1.1.2 here http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/site/112jb.html unzip and run the .jar file. This did everything for me - jailbroke 1.1.2 and activated my phone. I didn't need to do the whole lockdownd business - it just worked fine after this step. Everything seems to work on the phone with an O2 simplicity sim card with no problems. I haven't tried visual voicemail yet but I doubt that'll work as it is related to your contract service supplied by O2.

    Basically you can't go wrong if you follow the steps to this tutorial in tandem with the steps in the jailbreak 1.1.2 readme in the package that I linked above.

    Cheers and good luck to all!

    P.S. I was using OSX tiger on a macBook pro, with iTunes 7.5 (just to be sure I uninstalled my SRS iWOW plugin from iTunes just in case it didn't play nice)

    Excellent information, worked a treat...thanks so much.

    I havent been able to download the lockdownd file but my iphone seems to work fine without it.....should I keep trying to get the file or just forget it seeing as I can make calls, text, sync etc.??

    Glad some people are clarifying(sp?) it out for others. It is a pretty simple method tbh, and it has been confirmed to work by everyone here. Hopefully, this should lay rest all the uneasiness about a guy with a DBZ name making a guide

    Hi

    I just have two questions...

    1) Does this fix affect or alter the IMEI number.

    2) I take it that to put the iPhone back the way it was, I just need to update the firmware. Is this correct?

    Many thanks for your help

    yes, 1.1.2. it cant be unlocked at all, even with a downgrade. different bootloaders. search this excellent forum if you want to know more.
    activate using instructions above, and no one knows the process to unlock, until the unlock is out!

    1. it didnt for me... the one on the phone and in the about section are the same
    2. yes, that should be correct, as long as you dont unlock (which is currently not possible)

    Hi

    I have fallen at the first hurdle!

    I have downloaded all the software necessary and done step 2 OK. When I start up iTunes (step 3) it doesn't offer me the option of restore or update. All I get is how to activate and sign up for the O2 contract!

    I am obviously doing something wrong, can anyone offer any help.

    Best wishes
