    Default confusion about 1.1.1 upgrade potential (sorry for redundancy)

    Hello folks, new to this forum :-)

    I have had an iphone since late Sept, ordered via Ebay from Cali into Canada to work on a GSM network. Phone is wonderful, works fine. It was unlocked and upgraded to 1.0.2 with Anysim easy-unlock, or so I have heard from the gentleman who sold it to me.

    Now, I have been reading tons of messages, web pages, etc. since september about the dangers of this and that, and I know that my case is not the best of all scenarios...

    My question is, can I upgrade safely to 1.1.1, and if so, how? My fear is that for all I have read so far, I do not necessarily fit the profiles I have read about, ie there is always something different from the case scenarios I have read about...

    Here's the meat:

    - I have an IMEI with 0113xxxxxxxxxxx, so it is not the apparently bad 00449 or whatever

    - I have a FW 03.14.08_G so I understand that this means I haven't had any fooling around with patch 1.1.1

    - my patch 1.0.2 has a (1C28) after it, if it matters (I have no idea)

    - I'm using Fido in Canada, so of course it is jailbroken and unlocked, allegedly using Anysim in whicever version was available in mid to late september I believe.

    And the assumption is that if I upgrade to 1.1.1, I would use it again jailbroken and unlocked...

    Any suggestions? As I said, it works, but I believe in upgrades, so I'd like the 1.1.1
    (I don't even know what 1.1.2 does anyways...)

    And I would be willing to pay to have it upgraded, if it is required.

    Thanks a lot for the feedback folks.

    Dr S.

    wow, no replies? I'm sure it wouldn't hurt anyone to write the 3-4 lines of text I need for help.

    Thanks in advance.

    feel free to upgrade to 1.1.1, then use the jailbreakme.com website, then install anysim to unlock.....

    You may find a brick when you upgrade to 1.1.1.
    i wouldn't trust people with just 5 posts.
    It will depend how the unlock was done on 1.0.2. You will probably have to virginize.
    You surely want to take a look at this: http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=13004

    Dr. S- do not upgrade to fw 1.1.1 without FIRST virginizing your iphone. If you have used anySIM 1.0, you need to return the seczones to a virginized state. If you used anySIM 1.1, then you should be ok. To virginize, search the forums for one you trust and can be comfortable with using. I would suggest using the i.unlock.no method (search the forums to figure out how to do this...it involves adding the i.unlock.no site to your sources list).

    thanks a lot folks, I haven't tried yet, but I assume I will have to virginize it indeed. One thing, though, is that I do not possess another SIM card than my Fido one (no AT&T card).

    Would that be a problem in your opinion?

    cheers,

    Dr Sly
