    READ THE THREAD. THE ANSWER TO THIS QUESRTION IS ON THE FIRST PAGE, THE PREVIOUS PAGE, AND MANY BEFORE THAT
    the iPhone bought in UK or Germany CANNOT CURRENTLY BE UNLOCKED so only an o2 sim will work in the UK, or a T-Mobile sim for germany
    A TMOBILE SIM CARD WILL NOT WORK IN A UK IPHONE

    eem, Thanks for the reply. Please can you be more explicit what I have to do re the YouTube. You say...

    "so when u ssh into u can copy the zip file to your machine and extract, and copy the contents to the right folder.. all is done"

    Sorry I must be dense as I have some questions...
    1) What app am I using to ssh the iPhone?
    2) Which zip file are you describing?
    3) How am I expanding the zip file?
    4) which is the "right folder"?
    to use SSH, download a trial of 'transmit'
    in the server box, type in the IP address of the iphone (more on this in a sec)
    in the user name box, type "root" without quotes
    in the password box, type in the password you chose, or "apline" if you didnt choose one
    to find the iphones ip address, go to settings > wifi > click on the connected wifi network
    and the ip should be listed there, something like 192.168.1.6

    and i dont know about the zip file, or correct folder, sorry

    see, i am still happy to help people with GENUINE problems that HAVE NOT already been asked

    OK I posted earlier after downgrading my OOB UK 1.1.2 iPhone to 1.1.1 and jailbreaking succesfully. Well I've now done the rest.

    Following this guide to the letter and using iTunes 7.4.2 (4) on MacBook Pro running OS 10.4.10 it went smoothly updating via iTunes back up to 1.1.2. Then used the jailbreak (had to download the libreadline.5.2.dylib as outlined in the FAQ) and hey presto.

    Then installed my free O2 PAYG sim newly aqcuired this morning and I'm now happily texting, calling and voicemailing (they even added a 1 bonus onto my account .

    Only problem I'm having is I can't seem to install any new apps through the installer. I get all the way to the install or cancel button but the install button is greyed out and unresponsive, the cancel button works fine. Can't uninstall either - anyone any clues. I can upload via SFTP no problem. Also can't delete contacts from address book but can add them! Again syncing them ain't a problem.

    Overall though well chuffed. Donation to DEV team on it's way!

    and thanks for crediting me, only did it so more people can successfully follow this guide and use the amazing iphone without the amazingly ridiculous price, so all credit should be for you, and those that have helped make this hack possible.
    Heh thanks. To answer your question, those who used the old 1.1.2 JB need not re-do this. Its essentially the same 1.1.2 JB, however it will automatically 'activate' it for (i.e. skip lockdownd step on the guide, hence its removal) and also fix youtube. Thats about it

    Wait for an unlock solution to become available. This was essentially your fault. As pgilder has already pointed out, if you had only read the guide properly, you would have known that the UK iPhones will only work on O2 UK simcards, and the german iPhones will only work on T-Mobile GERMANY simcards. Ignorance is not an excuse

    TAKE NOTE:

    YouTube seems to be working for some but not for others. (Me included) I'm currently trying to get hold of the correct solution, and then I will post how to fix this in the F.A.Q section. I repeat, the F.A.Q. section!!

    Trunkz, is this of any help:
    http://www.ging.co.nz/youtube.php
    the youtube thing is quite a common issue...

    oh and Trunkz, how about adding this fix for visual voicemail to the FAQ, to make the voicemail button ring the voicemail phone number:
    type "*5005*86*xxx#" (where xxx is the voicemail number. for o2, this is 901, so it would be *5005*86*901#) into the keypad on the phone, which will make the phone ring o2 voicemail when that button is pressed, so its like pressing and holding 1 on most other phones...

    damnit, i just brought an iPhone for nothing..
    depends on how you look at it
    you can activate and jailbreak it, and have an enhanced ipod touch
    and, if you wait a few weeks, youll have a new phone as well
    i think its lucky you bought it now, as it will be unlocked eventually. rather than waiting for the next software upgrade and for this whole process to start over again...

    can you not do a restore in itunes?

    mhh... don't get it, did a restore to 1.1.1 in itunes, then went ahead to do the jailbreak, tapped "install appsnap" safari closed by itself and the phone shwitched off. when turning it back on from the power button nothing was different - still "slide to emergency". so tried to do the jailbreak again, pressed again install appsnap and still got the same result - "slide to emergency"!!

    What went wrong??? Do i now have to start from step 1 again(restore to 1.1.1, even though it should be on 1.1.1 now)???? Help please!
