Another one, back from the dead...
Hey all, just confirming this worked spot-on for me.
Only hiccup was I first attempted on 1.1.2 (I had previously activated/jailbreaked my OOTB 1.1.2 and had tried to use it with a Stealth SIM with very little success, it just didn't work all the time and often dropped service).
When I attempted the ienew in term-VT100 on the iPhone, the whirling wheel appeared like it was trying to restart. The phone froze - I had no choice but to reboot it, while the bootloader was erased!
I almost panicked, left it overnight and came back and managed to restored to 1.1.2 and got back my IMEI, Wi-Fi and ICCID. I downgraded then to 1.1.1 and then I continued with the iunew which worked and finally Oktoprep'd up to 1.1.2. Ran AnySIM 1.2.1u in Airplane Mode and unlocked fine.
So many thanks to all community members here who posted their tips.
Cheers, -= Digga =-

you can have the phone on during take-apart. in fact, you can remove back plate/on-off power cable from front side without any problems while powered up, as well as the inside metal plate. the iphone is pretty durable, and is not sensitive in the least bit. now then, i would worry more about getting that damn back-side off then i would about power on-power off.

make sure the CommCenter plist is unloaded. make sure, while inside folder, you chmod 777 *. if that fails, type ps -A and find the PID's of everything running in the /System/Library/Fr... and then issue kill -9 123 (replace 123 with the PID number of the process). once all those are killed, try bbupdater -f *fls -e *eep command and hopefully it works.

Actually I did all the thigs mentioned in the
which has nice detailed comments for a noob like me...
Still i got one question remaining:
I started with the hardwaremethod only, because I killed my wifi, imei, ... by trying to use a basebanderaser made for the old bootladers.
now i followed all the steps mentioned in the above tutorial and everything seemed to work.
On settings it sais now I have modem firmware 04.01.13_G and also my imei reappeared
BUT I STILL DONT HAVE ANY WIFI
So just wanted to ask if anyone knows the last steps???
Just RESTORE to 1.1.2 with itunes?
this should update the baseband and give me back my wifi & co, sholudn't it????
And I should still have the hacked BL 3.9? True???
Thanks for help on this...!!!
Yes, do a restore to 1.1.2 - if you still have the problem it's probably hardware fault.

If you installed it over a week ago, those files arent even included. If you installed them the first day i added them, they are not chmod'ed correctly, so you need to chmod 755 manually. All packages now containes pre-chmoded files, so there should be no problem with this anymore if you have the latest versions!
Note: Some people reported that after writing 111.fls and eep, phone appears to work normal, and unlock with anysim is successfull etc - but you get no signal. It looks like even though you flash baseband after bootloader downgrade, you will need to restore your phone to 1.1.1 again before you get signal. If someone has a logical explaination to this, please let me know...
I dont now its right here ore not.. but i got a great Problem!
we has downgrade my IPhone from 1.1.3 to 1.1.1 and now its damage :-(
you see the Cable to CD Icon. You can go to Emergy-Call-Modus and take numbers at the display. But you canīt call again whit the Green Bottom, thats do nothing, or wating more than 30minutes and mor ... but do nothing
