Success: UK purchased phone 1.1.2 with O2 pay as you go sim on a windows computer.
have tested : phone receiving + making calls, sms send and receive, youtube, web, music and video.
Thanks to Trunkz and all who worked on this.
Some details for windows users...
Step 1) part 2) - getting phone into restore mode
iphone on and in dock, itunes running
press and hold power off and home button
ignore slide to power off
white apple appears
let go power button , keep home button down
when connector picture appears let go home button
Step 1) part3) can't remember what the dialog said, think I pressed restore but it disappeared and I was left with the main itunes restore screen. On the itunes restore screen I click the restore button whilst pressing the shift key to get the choose restore file dialog.
Step 1) part 6) I used iBricker.exe to get me out of restore mode. ( yes the website does have a warning about "1.1.1 ruins everything" however the get out of restore feature works and that's all I used it for)
Step 2) part 2) "dial *#307#" could be written as "type *#307# and press call"
Step 2) part 4) "Press accept call, then press hold, then press deny." could be written as "press answer , then hold, then decline"
Step 4) part 4) "load up terminal" = "open windows command prompt"
Step 4) part 4) "type ./osx" = "run windows.bat file which you find in that directory"
Step 7 parts 1) and 2) I used WinSCP
note : the ip address can be found under iphone settings -> wifi -> and click the little blue arrow next to your active network connection.
Step 7 part 6) I used WinSCP to check the permissions on the existing lockdownd file ( select it, right click then properties ), I then renamed the old file, copied the new one to the phone ( drag and drop ) then set the permissions the same as the old one.
