[REALLY ULTIMATE GUIDE for Windows] Jailbreak-Unlock-Activate-YouTube Iphones 1.1.1
This looks long but this is as far as I know the easiest guide for windows out there (at the moment)
BASICALLY IT IS JUST 4 STEPS (for a new iphone 1.1.1): You can try other methods but you learn more about your iphone here.
1. Prepare TIFF exploit (just create a contact with 2 urls)
2. JAILBREAK (just run touchFree)
3. UNLOCK (just upload AnySIM and execute it)
4. ACTIVATE (just upload one file)
for youtube 1 more STEP (upload 3 files)
Ok. So after watching the ULTIMATE TUTORIAL for WINDOWS thread grow till its 85 page (849 posts).Filled with the same questions again and again.. questions that had been answered before but people as just too lazy to read or even search in the thread (YES, there is an option for that).
I have decided to rewrite vomer tutorial (there were some not so clear steps) and update it with new information gathered from the experiences of the people in that thread and my own experiences. It looks long but only because everything is detailed.
What we got now is a tutorial with LESS steps. If you can’t succeed now… then wait till someone else make a just one click application that does it all.
Also some netiquette advice or I may close this thread:
1. BEFORE POSTING A QUESTION BE SURE IT HASN’T BEEN ANSWERED ALREADY!!
2. Use the “Search in this thread” option.
3. Make sure the question is related to the subject of this thread. If not search for another thread or start a new one. There is also the internet out there (Google?)
4. Even if the thread gets to be 100 pages long. Hopefully it won’t. Search. Then read the first 15 pages because chances are that the most common problems appear at the beguining. And then go and read the last 5 before you make a new post.
5. When you make a question give as much details as possible (like Operative System,…)
6. Use your brains a little. We all have one!
You need to be able to read. I mean it seriously!! (This is not youtube, this doesn’t have pictures)
As someone said (and I agree): “If your only experience with computers is Word and Excel…”
Well, GET THE F.O…. :) Just kidding… but maybe you should wait for an easier solution.
I don’t think this is hard if you pay attention.
You must have never ever unlocked your iphone before (I mean before AnySIM for 1.1.1 arrived).
You could have jailbreaked it … you can have a firmware previous to 1.1.1 .. You could have already updated to 1.1.1… but you must have never mesed up with your Baseband (the modem firmware).
[OK, for more information take a look at this Guideline for upgrading to 1.1.1 and have it unlocked.
[OK, I am not sure at all it this could work in other cases or revirginazed iphones. I guess it should for revirginazed if that means really a clean starting state. DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. I CAN’T HELP HERE] [EDIT: Here is a virginized iphone confirmed to work with this tutorial: http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showpost...&postcount=67]
You need Wi-fi for this method to work. FULL STOP.
You need a computer running windows. I used XP with Service Pack 2. No idea about VISTA but it should work (there are some tips for that).
And ,yes, you need an iPhone.
PLEASE, PLEASE READ THE WHOLE TUTORIAL AND THE POST WITH THE F.A.Q. BEFORE EVEN STARTING WITH YOUR IPHONE.
DOWNLOADS (you need to uncompress the compressed files of course, no zip/rar goes into the iphone):
*http://d.turboupload.com/d/2098918/unlock111.zip.html (Includes: TouchFree 0.6 released, WinSCP, AnySIM 1.1, and more things you don’t need)
*Microsof .NET Framework v3.0: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=70848
*iTunes (7.4.3) !!Seems there is newer iTunes version!!I don't know if the method will work with that http://www.filehippo.com/download_itunes/?3239
*iPhone firmware 1.1.1 (if your iphone is not 1.1.1 already): [Some people are reporting that Apple may have patched this file to close the TIFF exploit.I doubt it but you can try to find the original 1.1.1 file from somewhere else] http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite....a_Restore.ipsw
[NEW TIP: It is really really recommended to completely uninstall previous iTunes (Including deleting folder C:\Documents and Settings\(UserName)\Application Data\Apple Computer\ if it is there after uninstallation, be careful if your iTunes library file is there!). At least check this: http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showpost...&postcount=60]
[If you already have a previous version of .NET Framework uninstall it too!!]
Install: iTunes, WinSCP, the .NET Framework v3.0 and TouchFree.
[ If problems installing .NET in Windows Vista read this: http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showpost...postcount=656]
LET’S GO! (It is much easier than what it looks)
0. Put the AT&T SIM card inside the iphone (recommended) or you can use any SIM card as long as it doesn't require a PIN code to use it, you can disable the PIN in your actual mobile phone
[EDIT: is being reported the following by luigidelgado: "DOES NOT HAVE TO BE AN AT&T SIM, THAT IS INCORRECT I DONT HAVE AT&T IN MY COUNTRY. PLACE WHATEVER SIM YOU USE FROM WHATEVER CARRIER, BUT DONT REMOVE DURING THE WHOLE PROCESS"]
1. MAKE SURE YOUR IPHONE HAS THE CORRECT MODEM FIRMWARE:
1.1. Go to Emergency call and dial *3001#12345#*
1.2. On the Field Test page click versions. Firmware version should be 04.01.13_G (if not well, we are going to upgrade in Step 2, come back and check after that)
2. RESTORE YOUR IPHONE OR UPDATE TO 1.1.1: [EDIT: If you just opened a brand new iphone and you are sure it is 1.1.1 you can skip this part]
[NOTE:RESTORE IS NOT VIRGINIZE]
Use the DFU method:
Connect the iPhone to computer with USB cable. Probably iTunes will start. [You can switch off iTunes if you want to]
The iphone must be switched ON. Don't switch it off (don't do the slide power off)
Hold down the Power and Home buttons until you hear the disconnect tone (that is the two tone sequence indicating that a USB device has disconnected).
Then release the power button and continue holding the home button until you hear a quick pair of connect and disconnect tones, then release the home button. Then start iTunes (if it wasn't running) it will detect an Iphone that needs to be restored. click OK.
Then Press Shift key on the computer while you click on restore. It will show you a window to select the firmware.At this point, I would disconnect the computer from internet (take cable off or switch off WiFi) so avoiding itunes contacting apple and we make sure it is using the file in our computer.Select the 1.1.1 you downloaded before. Let it restore/upgrade.
3. PREPARING THE EXPLOIT (We are just going to create one contact with two URL addresses):
3.1 Slide to reach the emergency dial screen
3.2 enter *#307# and then press call
3.3 Delete the #*307# and then press 0. After that press the call button you are seeing and it will show you the answer/decline buttons.Click answer.
3.4 Press hold now and your phone will start ringing again
3.5 Press Dismiss.Will go into the contacts/dial screen
3.6 Press contacts from the bottom bar and add a contact
3.7 Add a contact with a random name and write in "Add newURL": prefs://1F [Thanks idutch for the idea!!]
3.8 Add a second URL for that contact.Add the address as : http://jailbreak.toc2rta.com/ [Seems to be down: this is an alternative: http://jailbreak.kengz.com ]
3.9 Save it and click on the contact's FIRST homepage.This will take you straight into the setting menu of the iPhone, and you can take all the time to select a WIFI network!
3.10 Write down the IP address of the iPhone.
3.11 IMPORTANT: Once we are on setting menu lets set auto-lock on your phone as "never" (on your iphone: Settings > General > Auto-Lock > Never)
