    I have to say this. Read up a couple of posts and then think carefully. Is it worth it?
    I hope people will learn from my f**k up and will stay away from this (and i thought i did everything right). I am quite technical and have hand built FM radio transmitters, so i am not new to this sort of modding. If you have any doubt (like i did a few days ago), i STRONGLY advise not doing it.
    If you do decide to go through with it, i recomend getting an "ipod opening tool" from E-Bay or somewhere. I got one and caused no damage at all.
    Also, you will need a good magnifying glass as the points are really really small. I have anindustrial one with built in light.

    At the end of the day, its your phone and you should do what you wish with it. Mine helps to keep the door from slamming shut. 10 mins and i'm worse off than i was last weekend.....

    My 2 cents

    UPDATE: Went to the last resort and installed 1.1.3 Phone fixed but useless!
    A strange conincedence happened though! Richard Marx and "I died in your arms tonight" came on the radio just as i started the update! Thats some Twilight Zone shit right there!!

    What do you think?... but if you, FatMax, could post some kind of video on Utube and all the tools to open the phone then that would be great...

    Thanks Fatmax.
    Did you get it open yet ? PM me for some tips if you didnt...

    Here's my experience with the HW unlock. I've done 6 of them now, the last one failed, but I finally recovered it. The first 5 I followed directions exactly and all worked. I ssh'd into the phone, unloaded CommCenter, ran ienew. At that point I lost ssh (as expected). then I turned to the term on the phone and continued with iunew and testpoint. The last phone, however, I deviated from the directions. Why? Well I wanted to check the Bl version of the phone before I unlocked. Don't know why, it was pointless. Anyway, I sshd into the phone, unloaded CommCenter, ran bbupdater -v to check version, and then ran ienew. At that point the phone did something different than the first 5, is reported waiting for data. From that point on, it was bricked and I couldn't get it back. I eventually swapped the comm board into a different phone and recovered it from there. So I'm not sure what bbupdater did. but I'm not running that again (before a HW unlock).

    @Eve:

    Do you hace any pictures from the opening of the case to post for people here? It seems this is the largest struggle for people. I have not yet documented my unlocks so far.

    ...After successfully getting the testpoint the process will finish of with the writing of the new bootloader. At the end it tells you to pray and write "bbupdater -v". Both times I got "baseband not responsive to pinging". After my experience, this is normal. Return to the springboard and put your phone in DFU mode.
    Restore your firmware to 1.1.2! NOT 1.1.1!
    Then you can restore again to 1.1.1.....

    this is what i doing..i did not reset the BL and just DFU to 1.1.2...and to 1.1.1

    but i am unable to jailbreak 1.1.1 ...after jailbreak restart, i just stuck at the apple logo screen.

    Please help !!!!!

    I'll get some pics for you, it requires patience really. I don't have a mark on any of the phones I've opening using simple, around the house tools.

    @zeroflame:

    Try some more times, probably just hangs. Everything else went fine ? Did you scrape the trace ? To hard maybe ? Did you get the "get down and pray"-message ?
    Tell me some more please!

    I agree that it really isnt that hard. I think most people believe its easier than it is, and therefore it bums them out. We need to document the procedure! ;-)
