    when the 100% is completed .. the phone enters recovery mode and stuck then i can only click on 'jump out of recovery mode'

    hmm i can't get Installer !
    I never experienced iLiberty leaving the iPhone in recovery mode, sorry. the reason we need Installer and BSD Subsystem is that we have to use both at 1.1.1 to virginize - thats it.

    If I were you I would restore the iphone in itunes again to 1.1.1 and give it another try. Thats the best choice you have. You will get Installer on 1.1.1, maybe trying to add the payloads several times screwed up things.
    So, if you have the time, start iTunes (latest version, update if not) and restore to firmware 1.1.1.
    Start the iLiberty-thing from step 12 and make sure to complete all the steps. iLiberty got the iPhone jailbroken and activated, otherwise you would not see the apps on the iPhone, installer should be among them.

    So, if you want to, go for it. It's 1:20 am where I am now and I need some sleep for now.

    Once you completed the task, are at 1.1.1 jailbroken and activated, with installer on the iphone you could continue with the following:

    Things to make sure first:

    You have established Wi-Fi access on your iPhone to your Wi-Fi-router and the internet.
    Make sure during the following process, that the iPhone does not run out of power. Best would be to connect it to the PC to make sure it is powered. If iTunes pops up, quit it.


    DONT RUSH NOW!!!!!

    1. You MUST set Auto-Lock to "Never" (in Settings->General) on the iPhone!!!!!
    2. Start Installer on the iPhone
    3. If Installer wants to update itself, just ignore it.
    4. In Installer goto "Sources" (on the bottom)
    5. Add i.unlock.no to sources and refresh.
    6. Quit and restart Installer. Update Installer might pop up again, just IGNORE it
    7. Start Installer, goto "Install (on the bottom)->Unlocking Tools -> The Virginizer" and hit "Install"
    8. Virginizing takes 10 minutes NEVER interrupt!
    9. After its done, immediately start iTunes and restore to 1.1.4 (again hold Shift and choose 1.1.4 firmware NOT the 1.1.1!!!

    You are at 1.1.4 firmware (locked) then, ready to jailbreak, activate and unlock.

    You have two choices then. using iLiberty or Pwnage for Windows. In Pwnage section of the forum there are two stickies on pwnage, one general and one for windows. You should check both.

    The other option would be iLiberty. To use iLiberty, goto this thread, it explains all step by step. Take your time, never rush and do what the tutorial says.

    After getting this one done, enjoy your free and up-to-date iPhone

    best,

    hi again ..
    i'm still facing the same problem

    i've tried to redo the steps from the beginning several times .. yet i'm getting the same result !!

    after activating through iLiberty (when the status bar shows 100% complete) the phone enters recovery mode .. if i leave it as it is, it wouldd disconnect automatically after a while and show on the iphone screen "BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0"
    but if i click on 'jump out of recovery mode' in iLiberty, text would scroll on the screen and apparently the phone would be activated as i can see the apps and use them but Installer is not there !!!!

    what shall i do now ??
    am I missing something here ??
    is there another way to fix it ??

    There is still something worng with your iPhone. It is not supposed to go into recovery mode after doing the procedure. Plus still getting "BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0".

    Cause we defenitely have Installer on your iPhone, there is only one way I could think of. It was used back in the days when 1.1.1 was introduced. So you would have to restore to 1.1.1 another time. Then all the procedure is just typing stuff on the iPhone. On the end you have an activated, jailbroken iphone with installer on it.

    The procedure is here
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=42046
    in post#2 named Detour 2. This could be your way out. If you decide to give it a shot, just make sure to stop at the point (step 22) that is mentioned. The steps after that one would unlock your iPhone at 1.1.1, but you will get stucked, cause the iPhone has to be virginized before.

    I would recommend to give it a try.

    I followed this procedure (Detour 2 ) and it worked very well .. then continued these steps:

    15. Add i.unlock.no to sources and refresh.
    16. Update Installer will pop up again, just IGNORE it
    17. Start Installer, goto "Unlocking Tools -> The Virginizer" and hit "Install"
    18. Virginizing takes 10 minutes NEVER interrupt!
    19. After its done, immediately restore to 1.1.4 in iTunes, "setup as new phone", not "from backup"

    After updating to 1.1.4 firmware iphone displayed connect to iTunes and ‘Slide to emergency’ on the screen

    Now .. what steps I shall follow to activate/jailbreak/unlock my phone .. I’ve checked several threads here but can’t decide which one to undertake, as I don’t want to mess-up things after reaching this point

    Great, thats exactly where you have to be for a fresh start. Your iPhone is virginized now and ready to be jailbroken, activated and unlocked at 1.1.4.
    thats why it "only" shows the slide to emergency screen. It's now like an iPhone you have been recently buying.

    The difficult and tricky part is over now. Whenever something goes wrong now, you dont put yout iPhone at risk - as long as you stay away from ZiPhone.

    You do have two options now to follow on the way to the unlock. I have been writing up a tutorial to do this with iLiberty, you know it already. Should be working now for you, as the iPhone is at clean 1.1.4. The tutorial is here:
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=43569

    The other option would be to use pwnage from the dev team. I used it on two of my iPhones, have been working with iLiberty on another one - its up to you. For pwnage check the FAQ/tutorial here
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=36686
    for general information and here
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=41203
    for the windows version.

    Your iPhone is ready to go for both options, if I were you I would read both and go for the one that meets your needs. Both easy to do, both tested and working very well.

    If you continue to do it step by step you will have your free up-to-date iPhone in about an hour (plus reading before). As I said before, dont rush, take your time.

    I'll be back tomorrow here, need some sleep now, best

    Hello, sorry to butt in and sorry for seeming lazy and as if I haven't done my research - But I just want to be very careful that I don't 'brick' the phone, know what I mean? I just want to be extra careful, that's all.

    I would like to upgrade my phone to the 2.0.1.
    My phone is currently running 1.1.4, it is unlocked and jailbroken, I use it with T-Mobile.

    If you could please point me in the proper direction... I would be very grateful.

    Thank you...

    You're safe. just check the stickies for Winpwn (Windows) or PwnageTool (Mac) to bring your iPhone to 2.0.1.

    Default 1.1.1 oob -> 2.1 ?

    Hi,

    I have read this thread and a few others and I _think_ I got it, but I am not 100% sure. So before bricking my iPhione[s], I wanted to ask this:

    I have 1.1.1 OOB jailbroken with the old jailbreakme.com and unlocked with AnySIM. I want to update it to 2.1 using Pwnage Tool.

    How do I go about it? Virginize to 1.1.1, upgrade to 1.1.4 and then run pwnage tool? Is the upgrade to 1.1.4 going to bring the BL to 4.6? Will it then behave like 1.1.4 OOB?

    Thanks.
