I would like to see various sections in the Unlocking section
I dont think we should change anything, keep it that way
I have another idea: Explain

great idea having a solution/tutorial/guide section. but that section should be closed to the public and only MODS can post in it.

The way it would work is you would post in the FW section that you want to go to.

Now if you want to upgrade to 1.1.2, you would go to the 1.1.2 section and post how, etc. Get it? This works a lot of ways.
a. Because a lot of people are knowledgable on a lot of things, therefore if someone pops up in a section you like helping people out, you can help them without a problem.
b. this will allow you to find things easier. it breaks it down to the FW problem/solution youre on so that you can easly find what youre looking for.
Another note to add,
the reason XianLi had the way you post the Title's is because its easier to search. Makes things a lot easier, but not a lot of people follow that method.
and dtube, no there is not. when you're logging in and putting your password, click the remember me checkbox

great idea man. agree completely
iPhone 1.1.4 Unlocked with Ziphone. Greetings from Italy
some examples to strengthen my point. And to better understand what I mean in my previous post..
And importantly to avoid this over n over again...
- (ATT 4 16GB) on 4.3.2 / BB 04.10.01
- (ATT 3G 8GB on T-Mo USA. No 3G) Ultrasn0w (Unlocked/JB) on 4.0.1 / BB 05.13.04
- (ATT 2G 8GB on T-Mo USA) 3.0.1 Ultrasnow
I totally agree with this. Jailbreak and unlocking is two completely seperate things. And right now there's lots of questions related to the testpoint unlock, so i think that fits best in it's own category.

Extra sections within the unlocking section, Great idea!

Hey guys I proposed this before and noone paid attention .. lol..
now we have diferent versions and diferent bootloaders, so I agree a forum Tree change has to be made.
check out what I posted Months ago.
I think that's a great idea. I'm all for splitting everything up.

Hackint0sh rules. Keep it up.
I disagree for two reasons
1) Most of the posts involve people having problems when they're swapping firmwares up and down, I don't think a firmware-based division is going to do any good. In fact, I'm predicting people posting the same question in various subforums as they are already doing now sometimes posting both in general and unlocking. Plus, the people that are willing to help are probably the ones without problems, why make it harder for them to go through the forum.
2) Secondly, and most importantly, I doubt it will do anything to reduce the clutter of this forum. The real problem is newcomers coming in and posting "HELP!!!, etc." without taking a moment to search, read or even post their question in a way we can help (not enough info on what they did and what not).
My belief is that forum splitting will do nothing on that field, people will still post tons of new threads and actually 90% will end up in 1.1.3 section or whatever the latest firmware is.
Do you want to reduce the threads ? I say, make the FAQ better, perhaps post a "HELP" template for noobs, like what are the things they should say when talking about their problems. Or even take drastic action and start deleting threads with questions that have been talked about a million times.
I have a different idea that is the opposite of what is posted below. Instead of section where people would like to upgrade to, my idea is to create sections showing what version (OTB) that the customer is getting the iphone or other phones from. Because this OTB is more unique and tight to a serial number. Many of the future compatible issue actually relies on the initial version and not what the user like to be in the future (this is where people mess up their phone because the don't know which version they start out with for the new guys.
Unlock, Jailbreak and/or Activation (main catagory)
Definitions of each catagory (topic-sticky)
Unlock (sub-catagory-level 1)
1.1.3 OTB (sub-catagory-level 2)
1.1.3 OTB (sub2)
1.1.3 OTB (sub2)
This way the topic can be less dependent on the version they are in. If a new guy brought in an OTB 1.1.1 iphone and posted in the wrong section 1.1.3OTB, he/she can be redirected to the right section or move that topic to that section. Then this guy can read the problems and answers being brought to by other persons having the same phone version. And they get helped the same way.
Then if a person has a phone from OTB 1.0.2, he can easily help the other person with the same phone.
With this type of structure, it will be easier to see which OTB is having the most problem.
Of course, one problem exists and that is one jailbreak solution (for example) may apply to other section. And how do we solve that? I think that solution can be cross linked to different catagories.
This is type of forum we used for our company project and it's geared toward product specific issues and it works out well. Because for the most experiece guy, they can easily tell that the post is in wrong section and be moved to the right section. If I new guy come in, all we need is find out what version they have and they can be redirected to the right section easily.
Hopefully this give us some more ideas. I am when there is pro, there will be con. Let me know if there is any thing you like to comment on.
