    Default Jailbreak & bypass activation without using AT&T Sim

    Hi all,

    I have an OTB iphone04.02.13_G (1.1.2 FW 4.6 Bootloader) week 49. I do not have an AT&T sim card but is it still possible to:

    DOWNGRADE : firmware 1.1.2 to firmware 1.1.1
    ACTIVATE: Bypass the AT&T activation to have access to all the functions in the iphone
    JAILBREAK:install 3rd party applications on the iphone.

    I've come across a step by step guide on how to do this but Step 3: Activate and Jailbreak of this guide tells me to MAKE SURE that the AT&T simcard is in the phone. (Please see steps below)

    Can anyone confirm with me if this is the best way to jailbreak and bypass the activation and do i need an AT&T sim to do this? Can i do this without an AT&T sim? Please advice. Many thanks guys.




    STEP 1 - DOWNLOAD NECESSARY FILES

    First Download the apple 1.1.1 firmware file
    http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite....a_Restore.ipsw

    Second Download Ibrickr if you are using Windows or 1.1.2 jailbreak for Mac

    Ibrickr : http://ibrickr.com/downloads/ibrickr_v0.91.zip

    1.1.2 jailbreak : http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/1.1.2-jailbreak.zip

    STEP 2 - DOWNGRADE FROM 1.1.2 TO 1.1.1

    At this step if you dont have Itunes installed on your Computer please visit the apple website and download and install Itunes

    - Next Plug your USB in your computer and in your iphone, Itunes will automatically open and give you an ACTIVATION page

    -Now press the MENU BUTTON and THE POWER BUTTON at the same time and keep pressing them until Itunes tells you that it has detected that your Iphone is in recovery Mode, this could take something from 10 seconds to 30 seconds, so keep pressing both buttons until you get the message

    - Once you get the message dismiss the warning message in Itunes (Itunes has detected .....) by pressing OK and now you have 2 options , the first is Search for Updates and the second, that we will use is RECOVER

    BEFORE YOU PRESS ON THE RECOVER BUTTON YOU NEED TO PRESS YOUR SHIFT BUTTON IN WINDOWS (OPTIONS BUTTON IN MAC) AND THEN PRESS RECOVER

    Now a "Browse your files" window will open, go and chose the firmware 1.1.1 file you have downloaded in step 1 and press open

    now Itunes will start downgrading your iphone (this takes some time) and the downgrade process will end up with an error message 1013 or 1015 THIS IS VERY NORMAL

    -Next if you are using Windows Open Ibrickr and chose the Option "Reboot my Iphone" to kick your Iphone out of the Recovery Mode

    -ON MAC use iNdependence to kick the phone out of recovery mode http://independence.googlecode.com/

    Now you iphone will restart and you will have an ACTIVATION PAGE on your iphone with the nice round WOrld image.

    STEP3 - ACTIVATE AND JAILBREAK

    Before you complete this part MAKE SURE that the AT&T Sim card is in your phone

    Now, you are on the activation screen that says slide to make an emergency call, slide to get to the keypad and then do the following:

    Dial *#307# and hit call

    The iPhone will now start to ring itself, once it start to ring you have to erase *#307# by using the backslash button on your iphone and then type 0 and then CALL, the iphone will ring again and this time hit "Answer" then hit "Hold", the Phone will start to ring itself again, this time click "Decline".

    Now on the screen you should be able to get to the contacts menu down the bottom, tap "Contacts" and then add a contact. Use the following instructions:

    Add the Name "Testing" and tap save
    Tap "Add URL" and type "prefs://1F" then tap save
    Tap "Add URL" again and type "jailbreak.unlockthatiphone.com" then tap save

    When this is done, tap "Save" again and it will take you to the contact page displaying the name "Test" and the two URLs you just added. Tap the "prefs://1F" URL and it will open the iPhone Settings page.

    Tap "General" and Then "Auto-Lock", set it to "Never".

    Go back to the settings page

    From here, tap WiFi and Add your WiFi network and make sure you are connected to it

    Now, hit the Menu button to go back to the Activation Screen, slide and dial the number 0, the iPhone will now ring itself again, tap answer, then hold, then decline just like before.

    Now, hit contacts again and then Testing, this time go to the "jailbreak.unlockthatiphone.com" URL
    Safari will open and loan the page, PRESS ON THE TOP OF THE SCREEN TO GET THE ADDRESS BAR AND CHANGE IT TO "http://jailbreakme.com" and hit GO when the page loads scroll to the bottom and click on "Install AppSnapp".

    Safari will now close and your iPhone will now go back to the Activation Screen.

    Once you get to the activation screen slide to get to the dial pad again and when you do this iPhone will restart by itself and thats it, your now Activated and JailBroken.

    STEP4 - UPGRADE TO FIRMWARE 1.1.2 & ACTIVATE AND JAILBREAK

    -Click on INSTALLER on your iphone (Blue Icon usually the last one)
    If you are asked to update your Installer please do it (if you updated don't forget after the update installs press the HOME button, it will take you back to the SLIDE TO UNLOCK page )

    -Now open your ITUNES on your PC or MAC and press on the name of your IPHONE in the left colum, this will take you to the page with UPDATE or RESTORE buttons

    On your IPHONE clikc on INSTALLER and press on TWEAKS 1.1.1 and press and install Oktoprep, once it is installed it will give you a message on your iphone saying "YOUR PHONE IS NOW READY TO BE UPGRADED TO 1.1.2 ........" press OK and then press the HOME button and it will take you back to the SLIDE TO UNLOCK.

    -Your ITUNES is still open on your PC or MAC now press UPDATE and ITUNES will update your iphone to FIRMWARE 1.1.2 and this time you will not get an error message like the last time when u downgraded to 1.1.1
    When the Update is finished you will get a picture of a plug that will appear on your iPhone and you will have the page SLIDE TO UNLCOK but written in French

    -Close ITUNES on your PC or MAC

    -download and unzip 1.1.2 Jailbreak from here http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/1.1.2-jailbreak.zip

    -In the Folder you will find the file jailbreak.jar Open it and press on JAILBREAK!
    (IF JAILBREAK.JAR DOESNT OPEN UPDATE YOUR JAVA HERE

    This will take some time and at the end you will get a message that says "Your Phone will reboot a couple of times ...... "

    Let your phone REBOOT a couple of time... And you will get back to the SLIDE to UNLOCK page

    YOU ARE DONE !!!!
    YOU HAVE AN ACTIVATED AND JAILBROKEN 1.1.2 IPHONE
    NOW ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GET A TURBOSIM AND START USING YOUR PHONE

    there is a pre loaded At&T sim in the phone. i believe not all places can use method.

    for example
    the part where dialing #307# does not work in South East Asia. my best bet
    could be AT&T can't just call back to the iphone way half across the globe where their coverage and service is not availavle. not sure can you use the same function by other service provider to duplicate the effect a not? can anyone confirm this? a lot of people use turbosim clone. i might get one myself. but i rather prefer a softhack then a hardhack.

    great work guys. keep it up

    regards

    What does *#307# have to do with AT&T? Do you think it was AT&T calling back?
    LMFAO!
    It's just a network configuration code, buddy. The phone basically calls itself.

    So that means #307# should work anywhere right? Since it's only the phone calling itself?

    I live in Thailand, South East Asia, and *#307# works without any SIM card in the tray every time.

    And by the way, you don't have to browse to jailbreak.unlockthatiphone.com first. You can add jailbreakme.com to the contact right away.

    Good to know someone in South east asia get's the unlock to work. I'm in Hong Kong now but i plan to jailbreak and bypass the activation when i get to the US next week since my iPhone is there. I plan to use Hong Kong's NEXT SIM card which i bought last week so hope everything works well for me.

    Did you have any troubles going through the guide i posted in this thread?
    Is there anything i need to watch for?
    It should work on an iTunes 7.5 right?

    What guide did you use to jailbreak your iPhone Iamz
