    Default How to restore an unlocked 1.1.1?

    Hi. Just wondering how i can restore a AnySim 1.1 unlocked 1.1.1 using OSX?

    You see, if i restore the iphone, it will be unactivated, jailed but still unlocked.
    and if i use iNdependence 1.2.4 to downgrade it the 1.0.2 again, would that corrupt the baseband because it is unlocked?

    besides, because i have unlocked it with anysim 1.1, i cant use the pre 1.1.1 upgrade because it's not an virgin phone anymore right?

    what do you mean by "simfree 1.1" ?
    Do do mean IPSF ?
    If you restore the iphone, it will be unactivated, jailed but still unlocked. This is true IF and only IF you know exactly how you unlocked it before. By that, I mean you know the version of IPSF or anySIM.

    What is the pre 1.1.1 upgrade are you referring to?
    The question of virgin phone is based on how you unlocked it; which is "did my unlock mess up the seczone of my baseband"?

    i think what he meant, and I'm searching for this answer myself is that if you happen to have successfully unlocked your phone, how do you perform a phone restore, assuming you want to wipe out your data and have a fresh 1.1.1 on your phone.

    do you need to perform a 1.1.1 to 1.0.2 downgrade then update to 1.1.1, or you can just hit on "restore" in itunes and just run independence after the restore?

    I've been figuring out how to do the restore, and if we do the normal restore using iTunes, will the activation work again?

    oh sorry, i meant unlocked with AnySim 1.1..
    i had a virgin 1.0.2 and used iNdependence new function "Firmware-Pre 1.1.1 upgrade" to 1.1.1 and unlocked it with AnySim 1.1

    but now i kindna need to restore my phone, but if i restore, it will deactivate and jail the iphone

    p.s. been reading a lot of old post and messed up with all the unlockering tool's name

    Yea, because i unlocked it with anysim, i go down to 1.0.2 it will be unlocked but then i can't update it back to 1.1.1 without brick the phone

    I got the same question. Although I have yet to get an iphone(but will very soon) I want to know the answer. I used to use PPC phone. What would happen, after the v1.1.1 OOTB iphone is unlocked, if it's restored to factory default? (does iphone have this function? )

    @bookmark01 & jhtoeh,
    Thanks for the clarification.
    I'm not an expert but based on my reading, it is my understanding that if you use the latest IPSF and AnySim 1.1; the unlock procedure does not mess with the seczone of your baseband. If you do a restore to 1.1.1 using the apple downloadable firmware, you are still good but you have to jailbreak and activate. The unlock you did previously still good. Of course, I did not try the restore yet .


    @gemini6,
    1.1.1 OOTB iphone - after unlock using lastest IPSF or anySIM 1.1 which does not mess with seczone. You can initiate restore, the function is there. I think it's the question of "what if I do a restore 1.1.1"? - I believe it will not be bricked.

    May be someone who have tried this can chime in.

    i wonder about this to. I used the Tiff-exploit to jailbreak and unlock the phone. used Anysim 1.1. and made the whole procedure on a windows machine. I have made a restore on the phone now and wonder if i can use independence or if i have to use the tiff-exploit again?

    (it was an 1.1.1 to start with)

    I don't see why not. Independence simplifies the process. The tiff-exploit is still there because you're still running 1.1.1 - Apple may patch it up later via a new firmware, who knows what else gonna break at that time :-)

    I restored and it was a pain in the ass to get it working again. It didn't work to unlock with anySIM after the restore.. it just exited after the copying firmware part..

    Just now (after 1,5h) got the phone back to 1.0.2. I still gotta downgrade the baseband..
