    Default [1.1.2 OTB UK] Windows Tester Wanted - Needs O2 Pre-Pay SIM Also

    Im looking for someone to test this once and fo all so we can get a definitive answer with proof, i need someone to follow the instructions below and let us know if they get a signal with an O2 Sim that is either pre-pay or post-pay but DID NOT come with the iPhone and was NEVER activated in the iPhone.

    Firstly you will need the following files:

    iPhone 1.1.1 ipsw File - Download
    iBrickr 0.91 - Download
    WinSCP - Download
    iPhone 1.1.2 Lockdownd File - Download
    1.1.2 JailBreak - Download

    Now, when you have all those files, lets get started:

    - Take your New iPhone from the box and connect it to your PC and open iTunes
    - Turn off the iPhone and then turn it on again. While turning on, hold the power button and as soon as you see the apple logo, hold the menu button also. Hold the two buttons together for approx 20 seconds until the phone goes into restore mode
    - iTunes will now say it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode
    - In iTunes, hold the "shift" key on the keyboard and click the "restore" button
    - Browse to and select the iPhone 1.1.1 ipsw file you downloaded earlier and open it
    - When it finishes you will get a 1015 error and your iPhone will be in recovery mode
    - Open the iBrickr 0.91 folder and run the ibrickr.exe file, it will ask you to boot the iPhone, click on the "boot" button and then exit ibrickr.
    - After about 10 seconds the iPhone will go to the activation screen

    Now you need to JailBreak the iPhone using jailbreakme.com:

    - On the Activation Screen, slide to make an emergency call
    - Dial *#307# and hit call, the iPhone will ring, if you get a screen that says answer and decline, hit answer, if you go back to the dial screen, delete the *#307# thats there and diall 0 and then call, then hit answer
    - then hit hold then hit decline and the doen the bottom hit "contacts"
    - Hit add contact and add the name "Test", hit save
    - Now hit add URL and type prefs://1F then hit save
    - Now add another URL and add http://jailbreakme.com and hit save and then save again
    - Now tap the prefs://1F URL on the contact page, this will take you to the phone settings
    - Hit WiFi and add your WiFi Network
    - Hit the menu button to go back to the activation screen and then slide and dial 0 again
    - Hit answer, then hold, then decline and then contacts
    - Now hit the http://jailbreakme.com URL in the Test Contact screen
    - Click on "Install Appsnapp" down the bottom
    - The phone will go back to the activation screen, slide to get to the keypad and leave it for a minute
    - The iPhone will restart itself and you will be at the spingboard
    - Open Installer, hit install and then go to the Tweaks (1.1.1) Category
    - Install the OkToPrep Package in there and then hi the menu button.

    Now we need to update back to 1.1.2:

    - Open iTunes again and hit the "Update" button to update back to 1.1.2
    - You will get no error this time and will be left with the 1.1.2 activation screen when finished
    - Now, open the 1.1.2-jailbreak Folder you downloaded earlier and click on the windows.bat file
    - Make sure the "SSH" box is ticked and hit the button to continue
    - Let it do its thing and reboot when it tells you
    - When the iPhone starts next it will reboot again
    - Now when it restarts it will be at the activation screen
    - follow the *#307# instructions from earlier to get to the settings menu on the iPhone (The contact "Test" will still be there as we only updated, not restored)
    - Hit the Wi-Fi button and hit the blue arrow beside the wifi network you are connected to and write down you IP address

    Now we need to Activate the phone:

    - Open WinSCP and enter the IP address of your iPhone with username "root" and password "alpine"
    - In WinSCP, keep hitting the top folder in the dierctories until it brings you to the directory with the "usr" folder in it
    - Open the "usr" folder and then open the libexec "folder"
    - There will be a folder called "lockdownd" in there, rename it to "backuplockdownd112"
    - Now, get the new lockdownd you downloaded it earlier and upload it to this folder
    - Right click on the new lockdownd file and click "Properties"
    - In the bottom half, make sure that all the R's and all the X's are ticked and NONE of the W's are ticked, it should say "555" underneath
    - When done, exit WinSCP and restart the iPhone

    If you did everything correct above then your iPhone will restart and go to the springboard, you will have Installer and SSH Icons on your desktop.

    Now you need to put in a Pre-Pay O2 Sim or an O2 sim that did not come with the iPhone and see if it works, some sya it does, some say it doesnt, lets find out!!

    I don't know... To change the SIM card in any iPhone you definitely need to SIM unlock it, and neither the activation via a patched lockdownd, nor the jailbreak even touch the SIM lock at all.
    Of course you can install applications and stuff, but the phone itself should still be linked to the supplied SIM card.

    I not doing it myself as i live in Ireland and do not have access to a UK 02 Sim Card. If i did, i would do it.

    I dont know either but alot of people are reporting that it works, but only with O2 Sims, thats why i want someone to test and post the results here!!

    I think what he's getting at is similar to what people on AT&T who are not on an iPhone plan are doing. In that case activation should be enough to get the phone working.

    I can confirm this does work with a o2 pre paid sim card

    The only thing I didn't bother with is saving the old lockdown file and just replaced it.

    What's funny is that with the o2 sim installed if you go into Carrier you can see

    O2 - UK

    vodaphone UK

    T-Mobile UK

    Orange

    as options....
