[1.1.2 OTB] DONE, 1.1.2 OTB is Now Offically H/W Unlocked
Just like the first hardware unlock, it is now possible to downgrade to bootloader 3.9 and unlock.
First of all, HUGE thanks to TA_Mobile and IMTH for getting us the secpack from 1.1.3 Also, thanks to psp_sully for giving me a 1.1.2 OTB phone to play with. Without them there would be no unlock, and no blog post.
YOU VERY WELL MAY BRICK YOUR PHONE WITH THIS. Be careful. I have done it sucessfully on two phones, and have never bricked an iPhone in my life.
So lets get down to business. It is a hardware method to downgrade the bootloader, and I am assuming you are familiar with the old hardware method, so I won't repeat steps. You need to have a 1.1.2 4.6 phone for this to work. If you upgraded to 1.1.3, have fun waiting for 1.1.4!
o Do you have a link to the 3.9 NOR dump?
Yep. Here. This is first 0x20000 bytes of the old nor dump. So you don't need to do any hex editing.
o Where can I get the rest of the files?
They are linked in geo's blog post.
o Was the secpack for 1.1.3 extracted?
o Is this a software method?
No. This method is a hardware-based unlock that requires you to open the iPhone. If you are a n00b, then don't do it.
o Got a tutorial?
o Is there a software-only method?
No. For now. Stop asking for it on this thread, it will be out when it is out.
o What does this news mean to owners of 3.9BL iPhones?
It means good stuff. Now that we have the 113 secpack, any accidental update to 113 can be completely reversed.
o Who did it?
The usual suspects; gray, dinopio, ta_mobile, imth, geo, psp_sully, devteam, and probably others.

There is a high probability in bricking/scratching/damaging/ruining your $400+ iPhone if you don't know what you are doing.
People are reporting success using this method, but there are not a few reports of losing Wifi during the downgrade. Make sure you INSTALL A TERMINAL ON THE IPHONE BEFORE YOU START in case something goes wrong.
Whatever problems you run into during the bootloader downgrade process NEVER EVER RESTORE/UPGRADE TO 1.1.3 IF YOU ARE STILL RUNNING ON THE 4.6 BOOTLOADER.
