    Default O2 UK iphone - PayG Sim

    Reports circulating in other forums suggest that an UK O2 iphone can be downgraded to FW 1.0.2 and will function with a UK PayG Sim card. I assume that the phone needs to be broken out of jail.

    Has anyone experience in this?

    Or is there anyone out there willing to do a test to see if this is the case. It would be interesting to see if this is true and if so, such a solution might work in Spain and Ireland!

    My UK 1.1.2 OOB works fine with a O2 PAYG sim, once downgraded to 1.1.1, Jailbroken, Octoprep, Update to 1.1.2 and replace Lockdownd file. It even comes up with screen message telling me my balance once I've finished my call or sent a text.

    Hope that helps

    This is the first report of this. Anything I'e seen so far refers to 1.0.2 as the only FW that works in such instances.

    If I'm correct, this is exactly the same as the deBricking process, except for the last step (and no BSD sub-system or Open SSh after 1.1.1 Jailbreak). Apologies for my ignorance, but I haven't been able to find any ref to this method...

    However, I do know that such a procedure exists, and it works for all active O2 UK SIM cards - don't think this will work in Ireland or Spain as different physical network...

    It worked fine for me. I think the whole process took a little under half an hour (including download time for 1.1.2 update) I did have to install BSD and OpenSSH (forgot about that bit) so to re-summarize

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

    I think that's everything.

    Have you used anySIM or any other unlocking software? By the way would you please send me the "Lockdownd file" that you have used or give a link to it?

    Thanks in advance...

    Anysim doesn't work with the new bootloader. Just to re-state, this is for O2 PAYG sims not any other network.

    This should give you all the relevant info

    Yeah I know the problem about the new bootloader. I just thought that method could help to unlock the phone for other networks also. But as far as I understand you say there is no hope, don't you?

    I hope it's not a total loss. If there is a new firmware this weekend, this will be the best hope we have of 1.1.2 OOB being network unlocked. If not, we're in for a long wait!

    this activates, not unlocks, only for 02 sims

    Just to re-state, this is for O2 PAYG sims not any other network
    and for O2 pay monthly, simplicity, and apprently tesco sims (tesco is run by o2)
