    Smile [Advice] I'm gonna buy an O2 UK iPhone soon, can i unlock/hack it myself ?

    Hi I'm thinking of buying an iphone, I've just got a few questions:

    Can I just go into a UK o2 phone shop buy one and unlock it myself (using the info on this forum), if it orginal has software 1.1.1 install (or higher)?
    Do I need to take into consideration the week number or something, and use a piece of hardware which attaches to my sim (I read this somewhere on ebay)? And if I do where can I buy one, and which is the best?
    Is the process of unlocking relativly easy- can someone with limited computer know-how do it?


    Thanks,

    Dr K.

    Finding a 1.1.1 new iPhone nowadays is almost impossible. You'll either find 1.1.2 (with 4.6 bootloader) or 1.1.3 (with 4.6 bootloader).

    This is the unlocking status for 1.1.2:

    • Hardware unlock it. (that means you'll have to disassemble your phone).
    • Use a TurboSIM-like method (or any other xSIM solution out there).


    And this is the unlocking status for 1.1.3:

    • Use a TurboSIM-like method.


    If you don't have computer skills or have never worked with SMD circuitry, I'd recommend you to buy a TurboSIM-like solution.

    Also, please follow the forum rules when creating new threads next time. There's a sticky thread explaining how the thread's title format should be.

    Apple
    sucks.
    Microsoft rules.


    TurboSIM-like methods? No way.

    - Unlocked Week 47 1.1.3 iPhone, baseband 04.04.05_G.
    - Bought in Minneapolis, MN;
    - Currently on TIM carrier.

    I'm not here to find help. I'm here to help others and give back what I've learned from Hackint0sh.

    You should be able to find plenty of 1.1.2's around. I bought an iphone last week, and it was a week 43 iphone. But sadly, unlike the USA iphones of week 43, UK ones are 4.6 bootloader. so can only jailbreak and activate it to use with an o2 sim.
