    Default How truly * reversible * is AnySim 1.1?

    Many of us were 'stung' with having to wait until a virginizer came out or were bricked for a while. Look at all the hoops people have to go thru to revirginize at this time. If the current AnySIM is truly and FULLY removed and undetectable, then people can simply restore to 1.1.1 before the next firmware update is applied.

    DevTeam's work has been amazing, and I'm not detracting from them, just wanting to know the real risks from the current AnySIM.

    I know AnySim 1.1 doesn't damage the seczone, and the iPhone seems to be relocked if you do a firmware restore via iTunes, but have we received official statements saying that it is completely reversible with iTunes' built in Restore function?

    Although they claim that its completely reversible... I doubt it.

    I tried to unlock my OTB iPhone yesterday - somehow it failed at the last step of activation(I had some SIM probs)

    I restored the phone back with iTunes - then jailbreaked and activated - did not need unlock again. So there must me somewhere/something that AnySim has written - which iTunes did not restore.

    If I understood it correctly the unlock will remain in place until the Firmware is upgraded. Therefore just restoring the iPhone to the same version will keep the phone unlocked.

    I believe extra steps have been taken with AnySim 1.1.1 to allow future Firmware upgrades without problem, however you will be locked again.

    If the above is correct then I think this is the best method possible. This way the Dev Team get the opportunity to write a new unlock (if it should be required) for future Firmware upgrades.

    Please can other people reply to this thread with what they think/know?

    See my post:
    http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=13193

    I did a before and after seczone dump and they came up different.
    Now if AnySim doesn't touch the seczone, why are they different?
    That implies that, even if AnySim is reversible, it'll require an additional tool to undo the modification done to the seczone.

    On that note, has anyone done a comparison of a TRULY virgin (ie never unlocked) seczone vs the 'restored' seczone generated by
    1.IPSF
    2. geohot virginizer server (now down but source posted)
    3.other virginizer program(eg. virginizer_pack)

    AnySim touch seczone, the table but not the token...

    if you make restore, the unlock survives.
    if you make upgrade, te unlock dont survives (in some cases)

    Why?, some upgrades dont include upgrade of baseband

    if you wanna compare completely if AnySIM is reversible you must do

    1) JailBreak+Activate
    2) dump of Seczone OTB Iphone
    3) Unlock Anysim
    4) dump of Seczone after Anysim
    5) Virginize you Iphone
    6) Dump of seczone after virginizier
    7) compare dump of step 2 and step 6 must be equal (I think)
    Iphone 8Gb unlocked (3 of them, old versions all)
    Thanks Dev(dream) team

    So, what you are saying is that AnySIM 1.1 is not really that different than AnySIM 1.0x -- both mess with the seczone locktable, but *not* the seczone RSA token. Am I reading you correctly?

    Any Devs care to weigh in on this issue?
