    Default [1.1.2 OTB] I am so confused... I think.

    Okay, I am new here and new to the iPhone, but I think I got some of this right, please, confirm my understanding or understand my stupidity. (please forgive me, I am a mechanic, and the most programming I know is BASIC for programming my small robotics projects (mostly using PICAXEs) but that is it)

    Alright, I have a week 47 iPhone, this would mean that I have bootloader 4.06, which is unlockable. Unlockable means that I cannot use software to change service companies (which is fine by me because I like AT&T, rollover is great, and where I live I get great reception). I could change service providers if I used anysim, or any one of those xxxsim things, which is a hardware hack.

    Now, I want to use custom software (mostly because I am waiting for the partfoundry to come out with their GPS and also I want to get flash/Java programs)

    What this means is that I have to... Jailbreak it. To do this I have to downgrade to 1.1.1 because I have an OTB (out of the box) 1.1.2. While in 1.1.1 I have to jailbreak that, than use different software to upgrade it to a version of 1.1.2 that will allow me to keep my iPhone free. This is because if I just restore it via iTunes restore that came with my iPhone, it will go back to the 'imprisoned version' of 1.1.2. I have to use iBrickr and I can still be on AT&T. This link is how to do all of this paragraph.

    Is this all correct so far?

    Alright, now, the next thing I am confused about is what to do from there. I would like to for the iPhone to work with my iPod2Car and my steering wheel controls. Here is a link for you if you don't know what I am talking about. Link Right now it works with my 30Gig iPod Video, but I would like the use of the iPhone so I don't have to carry two iPod products.

    So, could someone read over my post and correct it if I don't have something right using laymens terms, because I am programming challenged.

    For Mod: I think it's better to lock the topic and reply with the reason than deleted.

    I am sorry but you did not answer my question. Considering that I did cover all of my bases (version and problem) that I did follow that within my post. My problem is basically with terminology and understanding what people are referring to when posting.

    jailbreak 1.1.2 >downgrade to 1.1.1 >jailbreak 1.1.1 >install software on iphone to prepare 1.1.2 jailbreak>update (via itunes) to 1.1.2 >run a software on your comp to complete jailbreak of 1.1.2

    if it works with your ipod it SHOULD work with your iphone.
    having said that, some people have reported irreversibly damaging there iphones by using product that were not specifically designed for the iphone (the Voltages are different)

    Thank you. I understand fully. And yes, I checked to see, but my iPhone will not respond to the commands off of my steering wheel control buttons (next track, last track) like my iPod will. It will only act like it is charging off of a wall outlet charger. I will have to try my friend's new iPod Touch to see if it works.

    Thank you again, I just wanted to make sure I am on the right track (self doubt surrounds me at all times.)
