Best unlocking method under osx
Hi guys, i bought an iphone some days ago on ebay, and it should arrive hopefully in few days (yeah thanks a lot italian mail service for the good job you're doing ) with firmware 1.02 (hope its 1.02, i bought it before 1.11 release - crossing fingers!). Just wanna know which unlocking method you suggest under osx.
I read positive comments on this forum about this guide http://modmyiphone.com/wiki/index.ph...ck_OS_X_Part_1 , it looks pretty straight and easy but...theres a better way that you guys used or suggest?
Thanks a lot in advance and sorry for my english :p
I wrote one before:
EDIT: NOW, THE IPHONE FIRMWARE 1.1.1 IS RELEASED. THIS GUIDE WILL NOT WORK FOR IPHONE 1.1.1. DO NOT UPDATE IF YOU ARE USING IPHONE WITH FIRMWARE 1.0.2.RESTORE YOUR IPHONE ONLY USING THIS METHOD..
I know everyone is confused with the guide all over the Internet. So, here is the updated guide for all of you to get your iPhone completely worked with your own SIM. It is tested with iTunes to 7.4.2 and iPhone to 1.0.2. You will nlock SIM, SSH, adding custom ringtones, native programs and more after reading this guide. All for free.
First, this instruction will write for Mac only. I am not sure whether I will have time to write one for Windows. I will try hard to do it.
This guide does not guarantee it will work 100%. DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. DO NOT RUN THE FOLLOW STEPS IF YOU HAVE ALREADY UNLOCKED USING OLD VERSIONS OR OTHER SIMILAR TOOLS.
Make sure you quit process of ‘iTunes’ and ‘iTunes helper’. You can check it using Activity Monitor.
Step 1. Make sure you updated to iPhone 1.0.2, and copy the file from ‘~/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates’ . Copy the ‘iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw’ to somewhere else. Change it to ‘iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.zip’. Don’t double click the file, extract it using StuffIt Expander or anything else.
rename the firmware to .zip
Step 2. Download iNdependence 1.2.1a. Choose ‘Activation’ first to activate the iPhone. You need to choose the folder that you extracted from Step 1. The process is automated and you don’t need to do anything. If you saw ‘can’t enter recovery mode’ or ‘ICCID’ error, just exit the program and run again.
Activate your iPhone first
Step 3. The iPhone should now be activated. Than, from the jailbreak, choose to perform the action. Again, this process is automated.
Jailbreak process is also automated
Step 4. Than, install SSH from the Tab. Click ‘Install SSH’, this time you need to do some work, follow the screen and it will be fine. We recommend you to ‘change password’ to enter a new password for accessing SSH server of iPhone. Type ‘root’ as account name.
Step 5. I have also chose to ‘customize’ and add new ringtones. It works perfectly after sending the ringtones that is m4a format. If you don’t know how to change mp3 format to m4a, click here.
Step 6. Connect your Mac and iPhone with Wi-Fi. Check your iPhone’s IP address. Than, download Fugu and start connecting by typing the detail like below. You can did it also by sharing your Mac connection to iPhone. (Guide will be provided for sharing Mac connection.)
Step 7. Download the new AnySIM 1.02 from here. Extract the zip file by right-clicking it, than select using BOMArchiveHelper.
Step 8. Upload the extracted file to iPhone using Fugu. Put the .app file under /Applications. Quit all program. Restart your iPhone now. (pressing Power button and slide to power off. Turn it on again)
Upload to Application folder.
Step 9. You will notice the icon on the Springboard. Install the SIM that you wish to use. Run the program as instructed. If you got ‘locate bite error’, try this.
Upload it to iPhone
anySIM unlocked iPhone
Step 10. iPhone voicemail function may not be unlocked. So now, check your voicemail number. And press *5005*86*yyy# under Phone function.
where yyy stands for your voice mail phone number. If it was #123, than press *5005*86*#123#
The iPhone is now fully unlocked with complete function. If you want to install other third party native applications, than move on.
Step 11. Now, it’s time to install the native iPhone programs. Download the AppTap.installer first.
Step 12. Again, run it and follow the on-screen instructions. Make sure you choose the right firmware of iPhone.
Choose the right firmware
Step 13. Now you will see the Installer icon on iPhone. Run it, make sure to install ‘Community Resources’ so that you get update for latest native apps. DO NOT INSTALL OpenSSH or it will cause you errors.
Install community resources.
Horrray! Now just choose anything you want to install. iPhone should now worked completely with fun. (including YouTube and phone functions!) Sync it with iTunes and transfer the stuff to iPhone now.

Wow that was fast! Thanks a lot eddy nice job!
This is good.. but i found the one at modmyipod.com..... better and simpler...
I used this guide (http://modmyiphone.com/wiki/index.ph...ck_OS_X_Part_1)
to unlock a new iPhone today and it was a breeze. Instructions were clear and accurate. 10 out of 10 Apples!
I chose this method too because it seemed to have a lot less problems than others and (anecdotally at least) doesn't seem to be as prone to the low volume bugs that other methods sometimes report.
