    Default (1.1.3) 16gb unlock HELP!!

    Hey everyone

    I just had a quick question, i have 2 new 16gb iphones with 1.1.3 and 4.6bl still in the box. What is the best way to unlock this.

    I have been reading about the ZiPhone unlock, but it seems that those who are downgrading their bootloader to 3.9 are loosing their wifi and bluetooth and are unable to revive it. If i do the unlock but dont select the bootloader downgrade will everything still work ok. (jailbreak, activate, unlock)

    thank you for all the help

    if you choose not to downgrade your bootloader, you can only unlock your phone with the 04.02.13 baseband...

    If your 16Gigs are OOTB (they must be), use ZiPhone to jailbreak,activate and unlock, id you want to keep your BL4.6 UNCHECK "Downgrade Bootloader" under "Click to show advanced functions", a within minutes you and your iPhone will be happy, and free ....

    Regarding BT and WiFi issue (no BT, Grayed WiFi) that is mainly on UPGRADED iPhones,from 1.1.1/1.1.2 ... etc, previosly unlocked .....

    Or use new GUI, you can download it HERE:

    There really is no benefit to downgrading the bootloader on your phone now that 4.6 bootloaders can be unlocked. It's an unnecessary step and may cause those problems (with the WiFi, EDGE, etc.). Just stay with the 4.6 bootloader and save yourself from any future troubles.

    Well, everything right! But keep in mind that Google Location won't work properly with the old Baseband (which you get if you don't downgrade your Bootloader). I downgraded mine (1.1.2 OOB) w/o any problems btw.

    Not sure I completely agree with this, no offence meant. 3.9 allows use of the latest baseband, unlocked, which means google maps locate works too. And if it all goes pear shaped now or in the future, the baseband can also be downgraded with the 3.9 bootloader. You can't do this with the 4.6 BL.

    I have not had any issues with wifi or bluetooth on the couple of phones I've downgraded. My recommendation would be to downgrade the BL, enjoy the new baseband and all the features it brings. I hear Geo is writing some code to allow upgrading the BL from 3.9 to 4.6 anyway, so all options will be open.

    what is causing all of those issues, is it the downgrade or are they not doing something properly
