    Default New US OTB 1.0.2 unlocking

    I have been given a new US week 37 iPhone to unlock and after checking the version to be 03.14.08_G, I believe this will have the original 3.9 BL? I just want advice on the best and easy way to jailbreak/unlock this phone pls. Is it best to RESTORE to 1.1.4 and then use either iPlus or ZiPhone OR do it the oldway using Anysims??? I have been searching for more info on original 1.0.2 unlocking methods, but looks like all now out of date since software unlock came out back in early Feb! Pls help!

    If its used then it has 3.9 BL.If you just bought it refurbished,then it might have 4.6

    In either case,iplus is a good choice.Restore to 1.1.4 and use iplus.

    It's brand new purchased in USA back in Sept/Oct 07. My friend just left it in box until TODAY before passing it to me to unlock! What do I do, use iPlus, but what about the bootloader, wil it still be original 3.9 after iPlus??

    iplus only messes with bootloader if the phone has 4.6.A phone with 3.9 Original will still have 3.9 Original after iplus.

    Do a restore to 1.1.4 and then use iplus.

    To do a restore to 1.1.4 you have to put phone in DFU or restore mode.I prefer and recommend DFU.After you have 1.1.4 on the phone,use iplus to A/J/U.See sticky for iplus for more info on that.

    Thanks! I also prefer the iPlus route. Now that we have iPlus/Ziphone methods, no point in trying to do it the 'old fashion' method of J/A/U

    Just a final check before I 'do it', original bootloader 3.9 WILL NOT be affected in iPlus even it says bootloader will be downgraded?? Thanks.

    You are correct!

    3.9 bootloader CANNOT be upgraded or downgraded anyway even if iPlus wanted to do that!

    All it will do is patch the baseband so it is unlocked.

    I have looked at Ziphone too and with a simple 'Do it all' GUI and no typing in commands too and also since it is an original 3.9 BL, doesn't matter then with regard Ziphone downgrading it to 3.9 after the process! Must make a decision soon since my friend wants the phone back by weekend!

    Another question, since I have already have my own iPhone connected to iTunes on my pc, what happens if I connect this locked phone to iTunes?? Will it mess up my settings??

    It won't mess up your settings as long as you dont sync, iTunes won't try anything. Just restore to 1.1.4 and use either one, I suggest iplus seeing as how it installs a number of fixes and saves you some time
