Hi guys! I got an iPhone for Christmas and I was anxious to unlock it, however I read a TON of information that most of the phones that came with firmware version 1.1.2 have a new bootloader version (4.6) that cannot be unlocked....
Here is my question:
What will happen if I try to unlock the phone without checking the bootloader version? Is is something simple as "the unlock will fail" or I will have an iBrick instead of an iPhone, because something might get damaged?
I called apple today and asked when the phone was manifactured and I have been told "June 29th" so I think that there is a slim chance that I might have the old bootloader, but if I don't, I do not want to damage the phone while attempting to unlock it.
I would check the bootloader version to be sure (I found a great article posted here!) however, the process seems a little too complicated for an id10t like me
Could you advise?
