    at work now. got access to everything. if you can assist then great, otherwise are you on later to discuss?

    im half tempted to upgrade to 1.1.4 straight after a 1.1.1 restore.

    whats the reason behind not being able to update directly to 1.1.4 and then UL/ACT/JB using iLiberty+ ? One would have thought that all users who have 1.1.4 or less should be able to update then just simply unlock?

    Please stop for now at 1.1.1 I have found the solution. Already tested on two iPhones at the same status as your is. Working and solving yours and other users problem.

    Will be writing it up in an hour, Will be pretty easy for you cause you have all the stuff you need. I guess I just needed some sleep ;-)

    Default Working solution

    On your first question: At firmware 1.0.2 when AnySIM 1.0.2 was used to unlock, it left you with a corrupt seczone. If you now upgrade to 1.1.4 and jailbreak/activate/unlock you may end with a brick. No IMEI, no ICCID, no phone functions. Even if you are lucky, once you change the Bbootloader for any case you end with a brick.
    The Virginizer takes care for that and repairs the corrupted seczone. After that you DFU restore to 1.1.4 and have a clean redy to go iPhone.

    -------
    That took me a while. I forgot about 1.1.1 - without modifying some files you cant just add apps to the springboard. I found a way, puuh.
    You need to have a jailbroken and activated 1.1.1 iPhone, BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH on it - your setup. Make sure you have Wi-Fi connection on the iPhone.
    I had AT&T's simcard that came with the iPhone in the simtray all the time.

    You have WinSCP and PuTTY plus Installer.app from AppTapp 3.1 (Mac) on your PC. SFTP into the iPhone and copy Installer.app into /Applications.


    Use PuTTY to start Installer.app
    In WinSCP (still connected to the iPhone) choose menu "Commands" and select "Open in PuTTY" (you installed the software, right?). You will have to type in the correct password, it is alpine.

    Leave SSH connection running. Now on the iPhone check "Settings->General" and make sure "Auto-Lock" is set to "Never". REALLY IMPORTANT. To not to run out of power, connect the iPhone to your PC, quit iTunes and photo app if they start.

    In PuTTY set permissions for Installer (hit return after each line)

    chmod -R 755 /Applications/Installer.app
    chown -R root:admin /Applications/Installer.app
    chmod 4755 /Applications/Installer.app/Installer


    In putty type
    cd /Applications/Installer.app/
    and hit return. Then type

    ./Installer
    and hit return. Installer will start on the iPhone. Let PuTTY run all the way, text will be scrolling on it.
    It will bring you to a screen in Installer and offer to upgrade to "Version 3.0". Do it, you have to.

    After updated the Installer can not be restarted as it wants to - you cant hit Home to get to the springboard. Instead shut down the iPhone (Hold Start/Sleep until red slider shows up, slide to shut down) and restart it (Hit Start/Sleep button).
    You will loose the SSH connection. Re-establish first SFTP connection, then the PuTTY connection as done above as soon as the iPhone had restarted. Quit iTunes if it pops up again.

    In putty type
    cd /Applications/Installer.app/
    and hit return. Then type

    ./Installer
    and hit return. Installer 3.0 will start on the iPhone. It will offer to update. This time DONT do it, cancel instead.

    Hit "install" on the bottom. Even though you already installed BDS Subsystem (needed for SFTP and stuff) you have to again. The Virginizer later will check if its installed via Installer. Goto section "System" and install "BSD Subsystem". If it fails at the first attempt, redo. On the end a "Notice" will pop up, just hit OK.
    In Installer on the iPhone goto "Install" again, again into section "System" and install "Summerboard (Old)". You have to restart the iphone after doing and will find Installer among others on the springboard then!!!
    I forgot we had some restrictions in 1.1.1 in terms of adding apps. Thats why things failed. Instead of manipulating files on the iPhone, we now use the old Summerboard and all is working.

    Restart the iPhone. You may quit PuTTY and WinSCP on you PC now.
    You will se "waiting fo activation" on the iPhone, just dismiss (if AT&T simcard in the iPhone).

    Start Installer on the iPhone's Springboard and DONT update Installer. In Installer goto "Sources", hit "Edit", then "Add" and add i.unlock.no Hit ok then. Installer offers to update again, DONT, cancel instead. Hit "Done".

    When done goto section "Unlocking Tools" (hit Install on the bottom of Installer) and hit "The Virginizer". Hit "Install". After download in the next window hit OK and do NOTHING, until its finished. Dont touch anything, may take 10 minutes.

    When done, immediately start iTunes and restore to firmware 1.1.4. The iPhone is virginized then and at current firmware ready to unlock.

    You can then use this tutorial
    http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=43569
    to jailbreak/activate/unlock. When it comes to BootNeuter, leave Bootloader at 3.9. After done sync with iTunes. On first start of iTunes it will offer to recover data "from a backup". Dont do it, choose "setup as a new iPhone", after that sync and you are set.

    puh, that was hard, but i learned a lot

    enjoy your iPhone

    Puh, that was not easy. Now the solution is working. I forgot about different behaviour when adding apps in firmware 1.1.1 plus we had some glitches. Just take your time and your iPhone will be virginized in about 20 minutes, then upgrade to 1.1.4 and unlock.

    Just follow post # 57
