    Default [1.0.2][SUCCESS] unlocked straight to 1.1.4 +Tmobile EDGE

    All the info is on the forum, but I found it spread out and a bit confusing as most of the info is for >1.0.2OTB, or the older instructions suggested hopping upgrades from 1.02 to 1.1 to 1.2 etc. No need for any of that. Finally took the plunge tonight and took both of my pre/1.0.2 iPhones previously unlocked, and have them up to 1.1.4 now with Tmobile $5.99 edge, Google locator, SMS, Youtube etc all working great! In case this might help someone out there with 1.0.2-unlocked, here're the steps (as of March 4th, 2008 using the latest Ziphone 2.5c):

    1. If have an older ie. 1.0.2 unlocked phone, first virginize it via:
    http://iphone.unlock.no/#how-to-virginize-easily

    2. Download the latest restore firmware (ie. 1.1.4 restore firmware at iphone.unlock.no)

    3. Open Itunes. Erase the old phone backup settings (under preferences-iphone) so that you don't end up trying to backup your old iphone settings to the phone. You want to choose to add the newly restored iphone as a NEW phone so that it doesn't import a bunch of garbage and files from your old-firmwared phone.

    4. Use Shift-Restore (and NOT "upgrade") to put the downloaded 1.1.4 firmware file on the phone

    5. When done, close Itunes and make sure itunes.exe is not running.

    6. Run the latest ZiPhone (I used ziphone 2.5c) and choose the GUI "do it all" button to activate/jailbreak/unlock

    7. Done! To get T-mobile EDGE settings via the $5.99 plan: add http://sleepers.net/iphonerepo into the installer.app sources. Refresh your sources and install the 'TMobile $5.99 settings' (ie. Under 1.1.3 tweaks) and then just restart your phone.

    If you are using the $19.99 Tmobile plan, you can add 'internet2.voicestream.com' into the EDGE settings instead without using that application.

    doing all of this rite now.. just want to mention that instead of using iclarifieds tutorial (for sum odd reason my fone is being stubborn to jailbreak), u can simply download ziphone gui 2.3 which is what i used, and click "ierase bl 3.9 baseband" for those who cant jailbreak and access installer.

    B4 restoring to 1.1.4 u need to b in restore mode, or else it will say SIM CARD NOT RECOGNIZED.

    Also, i am going to use iPlus 1.1 as opposed to ziphones to see and report feedback

    iworld fixed the crashing issue in FW 1.1.2

    1.1.3/1.1.4 do not need iworld because apple fixed it already in those firmwares.
    First ever Apple product I bought : iPhone.

    Does the T-Zones plan work well enough to use? Is it a lot slower than the Unlimited data plan? Can you only download a set amount of data with T-Zones? If its worth it, I'd love to switch to the cheaper plan. Thanks.

    ilive in spain - and im running vodafone on a 114 (independance-hacked) i would install the Iworld app and the appsupport/patch for 114 before going - but its not the end of the world as you can do it with wifi when you get here if its nor working.

    I wanted to share that I went straight from 1.0.2 -- > 1.1.4 as well w/o any issues.

    I did viriginize the 1.0.2 phone.

    I used the iPlus 1.2 program instead of ZiPhone (too many bad posts on that program).

    I did a SHIFT+RESTORE to 1.1.4,not an upgrade.
    I initially used the Brasilian-PT payload file and it did not give me a signal. But, I went back to the original payload file and it worked fine.
    I should also add that I killed the iTunes.exe and iTunesHelper.exe appications prior to running the iPlus command:

    iPlus [-u].

    My YouTube did not initially work, but there is a Youtube Activator 1.1.4 under the "Tweaks 1.1.4" in the Installer app.

    The "LocateMe" GPS-triangulation works great. It is not perfect, but pretty cool for something that doesn't cost anything.
    The iSim program still works under 1.1.4. I use that as I have 3 different SIMs.

    So far, no problems with anything. Installer, SMS, YouTube, WiFi, SpeakerVolume, Phone, Maps, Safari....all working good or even better than before.

    Thanks to the hackers who come up with this stuff.
