    Smile Just got my iPhone, I'm at a loss as to how to unlock it...

    Hi! So, sorry that I'm asking this, I feel a bit dumb because I know this seems like a question that would be asked a lot and so would be easily searchable, but I can't seem to find what I need strangely... I just got my iPhone in the mail, and I'm super excited to get it working... I'm on T-Mobile and really can't switch to AT&T right now, so these are my question...
    How can I check what version of the firmware came on my phone? I can't access any of the phone's settings, and when I open iTunes with the phone plugged in I just get the activation screen.
    Since I just got it, from the online store, I imagine that it's probably 1.1.2, which if I understand correctly, means that there's no way to unlock a virgin 1.1.2... is that the case?

    I don't want to try a method for 1.1.1 and have it somehow brick my phone, and I'm all ansy wanting to use it already =P

    Any tips for a complete newb? I should mention that I'm on a Macbook Pro, with a bootcamp Windows XP if I need it, and have used terminal.app before and whatnot...

    Thank you for your responses and I'm sorry that I'm probably bringing up a topic that should be readily availble to me if I knew the right search terms to use :p

    Srsly, if you just had watched the FIRST damn fucking page of the unlock-forum, you'd have found plenty of 'OTB 1.1.2 Phone' Topics.

    just check the 4th and 5th digits in the serial #. if higher that 44 you should have 1.1.2.

    Hi Man

    I was exactly in your shoes a couple of days ago and no1 helped me so i tried reading hundreds of threads all around the internet to find out how this works.

    So let me give you a very clear tutorial.

    First Of all you need to check the week of production of your Iphone
    you can find this on the back of your iphone in the SERIAL Number
    You will have somehting like this : 7V745xxxxxx
    the 45 means it was produced on the 45th week
    Iphones from week 45 and above have the new Bootloader version 4.6 with the 1.1.2 Firmware which is unlockable without a TurboSim

    You can also check the Modem Firmware version of your Iphone by doing the following.

    1- Turn on your iphone, you will get "Slide for Emergency Call"
    2- Slide and you will get the phone keypad
    3- type *3001#12345#* and press CALL
    3- Press on VERSIONS

    If you have the version 04.02.12_G you are sure to have the bootloader version 4.6 which in unlockable without a TurboSim

    What you can do now is downgrade your firmware 1.1.2 to a firmware 1.1.1, by doing that you can use every aspect of your iphone except all the functions that need a SIM card

    I will explain to you how to proceed step by step to downgrade, activate and finally jailbreak your iphone

    For those who dont know what each work means ...

    DOWNGRADE : go from 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: gives you the ability to install 3rd party applications on the iphone.




    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

    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 "http://jailbreakme.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 "http://jailbreakme.com" URL and 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.

    If you recieved your iphone and it was mailed from China, then 99.99% of the chance you have bootloader 4.6

    it is unlockable at the moment.

    jailbreaking is perfectly fine and possible, i even recommend it, just find a tutorial, but for now your phone will 99% prob not unlockable, except TurboSim. i just made a new site, it will help you out alot if you want to give it a look. it has all the guides you need. Go to links and click iPhone Status Document. Everything you need to know is in it. link is in sig

    You are so sweet to do this to a newbie!!! Some people here are not nice at all. Anyway, my question is this...when you say the phone is activated, does this means you can use your AT&T sim card from an old phone and then you can dial calls? Or activated means you can navigate around the iphone and use it like an ipod touch? Please confirm. I bought my iphone at an AT&T store 4 days ago and have firmware 1.1.2 with version 04.02.13_G with serial number 41. I did a downgrade to 1.1.1 and install AppSnapp. Everything works but calling or sending SMS. All I want to do is bypass activation and just insert my sim card from my other AT&T phone. Thanks in advance. Cheers

    Unfortunately, you won't be able to use the calling features like an unlocked phone but you can use it for emergency calls like 911. However yes you could use it as an Ipod touch. However, in order to really verify if your phone is unlockable, you have to verify the bootloader version of your Iphone. If the boot loader is version 3.9 and yes it can be unlocked by using anysim 1.2.1u. HOwever if your Iphone has the new bootloader version 4.6, it ic currently unlockable at this time and can only be unlocked using Turbo Sim method. Hope this helps.
