    Default Just want to say what worked for me... 1.0.2 to 1.1.1 unlocked on a Mac.

    I'm writing this 'cause with all the post it's sometime kinda hard to muster the good solution. The entire process was done on a Mac and it went as smoot as silk. Newbies should be able to do this easily (Well newb are always newb so things might not go smoothly for them but hey, they might not be able to read the instructions, or else just try to bend the speed limit and skip some steps...)

    Well, Had an iPhone, original version was 1.0, updated to 1.0.2 and unlocked with either Anysym 1.0.1 or iUnlock, i do not remember, that was in the original days of iUnlock a while back. Anyway, it was working OK, and here what i did to upgrade to 1.1.1 and unlock it again.

    First: follow exactly the instructions here... well kinda...

    http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=13170

    (BTW thanks for the time you took to write that down, pretty well done!!!)

    Just remember that you can always use your trusty terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app) to SSH to your iPhone (So forget Putty) and use Transmit to connect via SFTP (forget the WinSCP stuff...). Of course if your iphone is unlocked and/or jailbroken, it's a fair bet that you already have SSH and the BSD Subsystem installed. If not, use Installer.app to install, or use Independance 1.2.5 (you will need this anyway). Follow carefully the instructions from the link above and your baseband should revert to a virgin state. That process went as well a one might hope.

    Second: Just download Independance 1.2.5, and from there, reactivate/jailbreak your iPhone if it's not (on my case it was returned to an inactive state but jailbroken, so i had to reactivate my iPhone.) Then do the Pre-1.1.1 preparation, and update with iTunes to 1.1.1. After, it's a matter of reinstalling AnySim 1.1 (and installer.app while you are at it) and unlock your Phone with AnySIM. (The help file in Independance is pretty well done, and following the instructions should solve all of your problems.)

    The entire process took me less than 25 minutes including the time to upgrade the phone inside iTunes.

    So if any newbies or technicaly impaired people are looking to virginize-update-unlock their 1.0.x phone to 1.1.1 on a Mac, use this method.

    "On Mac Substitute Terminal for Putty....."

    I'm a complete novice when it comes to command line...

    When I get to the following part I get stuck, because I dont know enough about terminal to know what I am doing, or more importantly what I am doing wrong...


    6) close WinSCP and launch putty
    username: root
    password: dottie

    8)type the next commands
    cd /usr/bin/virginizer_pack
    chmod +x virginator.sh
    ./virginator.sh
    9)Type: 2, then hit enter


    When I open Terminal I cant enter any of these commands...
    All I get is the welcome screen and...

    Seans-Intel-Core-Duo:~ sean$

    Where do I go from here?
    Any help would be gratefully appreciated...

    what exactly is meant by

    " Then do the Pre-1.1.1 preparation"???

    I did the virginizing, and appearently it worked. Then upgraded to 1.1.1 but cannot use INDEPENDANCE. It says I have to downgrade to 1.0.2!?

    For Cerebro:

    the syntax would be:

    ssh -l root xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (replace xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx by the actual IP address of your iphone)

    It will probably ask you to confirm the crypto key, just say yes

    Then it will promt you for the password

    After that, you will get the prompt from the iphone (should be a #)

    From there follow the commands explained in the tutorial, and after, follow carefully the instructions in Independance.



    For maskwearer

    That's exactly what i meant about following the independance Help, in the help file, it's clearly explained that if you have an iPhone with version 1.0.2, you have to use the pre-1.1.1 update and do the update after. Now, you have to downgrade to 1.0.2 and do your homework from there (go to the help menu, it's all there)

    (Well newb are always newb so things might not go smoothly for them but hey, they might not be able to read the instructions, or else just try to bend the speed limit and skip some steps...)
    You did exactly what i expected....

    Extract from the help file in Independance:

    Usage by Phone Firmware Version
    If you check the status bar at the bottom of the iNdependence window, it will tell you which firmware version you have on your phone.

    If you are using firmware 1.1.1, see this page for information
    If you are using firmware 1.0.2 or lower, see this page for information
    And

    Please note that if you have used anySIM 1.0 or other older free SIM unlocking solutions (anything except for anySIM 1.1. and iPhoneSimFree) to SIM unlock your phone, and you upgrade to 1.1.1, it will wipe out the SIM unlock and render the phone and text message part of your phone inoperable. Everything else will work though.

    Check the firmware version that's reported in the status line at the bottom of the iNdependence window. If it doesn't say 1.0.2 (or lower) then you'll need to downgrade your firmware using the instructions above.
    Activate your phone using the activation instructions above. Note that you should leave your phone jailbroken after activation.
    Install SSH on your phone using the instructions below.
    Ensure that your phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network (read the iPhone manual for instructions on how to set up Wi-Fi). Also ensure that it's IP address does not conflict with any other devices on your Wi-Fi network (sorry, I can't offer network admin help).
    Get the IP address for your phone by launching the Settings application on the phone, navigating to Wi-Fi and pressing the blue arrow beside the name of the Wi-Fi network that your phone is connected to.
    Select the Firmware tab and press the Pre 1.1.1 Upgrade button.
    Enter the IP address of the phone and the root password (see below for the default root password if you didn't change it when you installed SSH).
    Follow the instructions given in the dialog windows. If iNdependence gives you a warning about host verification failure and asks to edit your known_hosts file, choose the Yes option (which is now the default).
    Once you are told to upgrade using iTunes, quit iNdependence, and select the Update button in the iTunes window (not the Restore button).
    Wait for iTunes to finish.
    Quit iTunes and relaunch iNdependence. In the status bar at the bottom of the iNdependence window you should see Firmware 1.1.1.
    Congratulations! You are now ready to activate/jailbreak your phone using the 1.1.1 instructions.
    So please READ BEFORE YOU TYPE
