    I am not sure that the network in Ireland is very different, it is also operate by O2 UK, and to the best of my knowledge is being upgraded with the same base stations used with O2 UK. Maybe there is an activation process to go through, however it would be interesting for some Irish testing to be carried out. I suspect it won't work however.

    I've done this too to my UK iPhone (and to my friends one) except the copy of the hacked version of lockdown, and they work great with O2 pay & go sims.

    Adding your own hacked lockdown is pretty old school at this point.
    jailbreak-1.1.2.jar (latest) does that for you...

    And the answer is yes, the O2 Pay as you go SIM card will work if you do this. Same how AT&T pay as you go and AT&T non-iPhone SIM's all work in US 1.1.2 OOB iPhones as long as you activate (hack lockdownd).

    Hoping that a 1.1.3 or some such adds Rogers Canada officially and the same can be done there.

    There's no reason to use the lockdown file at all.

    It's all a breeze, downgrade to 1.1.1 install OKtoPrep, upgrade to 1.1.2, easy.

    Hey, I just followed the instructions and it worked. If there's an easier way of doing it without the lockdown file, go for it!

    Put phone into restore mode.
    Downgrade to 1.1.1
    Used Independence to take phone out of restore mode
    Jailbreak
    Install Oktoprep

    I think that's everything.
    dazb2007, isn't the "Install OpenSSH and BSD" step meant to be done before the "Install OKtoPrep" and "update to 1.1.2". Also after the update to 1.1.2, shouldn't the 1.1.2 jalibreak be run...

    I would guess the correct order would be...

    Put phone into restore mode.
    Downgrade to 1.1.1
    Used Independence to take phone out of restore mode (or iBrickr for Windows users)
    Jailbreak
    Install OpenSSH and BSD
    Install Oktoprep
    Update (Not restore) to 1.1.2
    Jalibreak 1.1.2
    Copy the hacked version of LockdownD to the phone.
    Reboot and away it goes.

    As I said, I'm only guessing, so please tell me if I've got this wrong...

    Ok, I've got a working oob 1.1.2 with 02 payg.

    What is the LockdownD, and what does it do for you?

    Only thing I cant' get working is data. edge or gprs, despite it showing some edge data useage, I've got not it to go anything productive.

    There's a thread on here somewhere (sorry I can't remember where I saw it) that details exactly how to get Edge working. I think you need to edit one of the plist files so it re-enables the option to change the Edge settings manually. Then you can enter the relevant Edge settings (there's yet another thread details Edge settings for contract and PAYG)

    I've got the same, jailbroke and activated using the tutorial for OTB UK iphones, then just stuck in an O2 pay as you go SIM and is currently working a treat

    Is a better solution to having an expensive ipod touch until an unlock is available IMO.

    Couldn't agree more. I've got the calls from my contract phone forwarding to the O2 PAYG sim until the unlock comes out. Works spot on!
