Discuss Simplist way to unlock with iNdependence and anySIM on MAC? at the iPhone "2G" (Rev. 1) - Hackint0sh.org; you ned installer.app with ssh and the bsd sub system installed so that you can ...
you ned installer.app with ssh and the bsd sub system installed so that you can drag and drop the easy way.
By dragging and dropping with iNdepependance you just doing a mini SSH session to get the file there.
I thnk you should have installer.app there anyway. its a great resource
I'm under the impression that Installer.app is recommended since it's the quickest way to get BSD Tools and OpenSSH onto the phone, which are required by Independence to transfer anySIM.app over.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't a mini SSH session to get the file into the iPhone is exactly enough for most of us?

99% of the iPhone users (who want an unlock) just want a simple method, without all the other bloat softwares, which we'll never use.

We need the simpliest 123 steps guide for the unlocking of a virgin iPhone on a MAC. Hopefully it shouldn't need all the SSH, BSD, SCP and bloat software to be installed.

For the most part, most of us - we'll never use the other software like SSH and et cetera.
Why dont you try it?
Drag and drop the app via iNedpendance and run from the springboard.
Exactly we are all waiting.

ok, here you go.
I'am on a Mac aswell and it's really easy. Sorry for my english.
Asume you have an out-of-the-box iPhone, did not fiddle around before.
Your Mac is running iTunes 7.4.1. You might not know, which version of the firmware your iPhone is runnig. The iPhone comes with a preloaded AT&T simcard. Leave it where it is (in the tray). You downloaded anySIM.app already to your Mac.
You do not need any Lockdown file or other stuff not mentioned in the guide.
And YES, thanks to iNdependence youtube will work after the activation and later on.
You do not need App Tapp Installer. You might WANT to use it after unlocking cause you wanna have all the cool apps on the phone. First do the unlock then enjoy, then install additional apps
Make sure your iPhone runs firmware 1.0.2. You dont know on a virgin phone, cause it does not show.
1. Get iPhone firmware 1.0.2 from Apple at http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite....8_Restore.ipsw. It's a zip archive, leave it that way.
2. Start iTunes 4.7.1.
3. Hold home- and on/off-button on the iphone.
4. Connect mac and iphone and keep holding the buttons on the iphone.
5. The iphone boots in restore-mode, iTunes opens up the restore dialog. Release the two buttos on the iphone.
6. Hold option-key on the Mac and then press "Restore" in iTunes. Dialog popps up asking for the firmware to use then. Point to the zip arcives you downloaded.
7. iTunes will restore your iPhone to 1.0.2 firmware, take couple minutes.
Put everything in place
1. Unzip the fiirmware file (the one you downloaded earlier) and put the content in an new folder. Name the folder however you like.
2. Get iNdependence 1.2.1a here: http://code.google.com/p/independence/
3. Connect Mac and iPhone and quit iTunes if running
4. Quit iTunes Helper. For doing so open "Activity Monitor" in Applications -> Utilities on the Mac. Find iTunes Helper, click it and hit the red Button "Quit Process" on the top left. In the dialog hit "Force Quit". After that quit Activity monitor.
5. Start iNdependence on the Mac.
5b. iNdependence sometimes throws an error when you do one of the actions below. In that case just quit iNdependence, and restart it. Then dor the step that threw the error (and just that step) again. It's a known error
6. Under "Activation" hit the button "Activate phone". Independence wants to know, where the firmware is. Point to the folder (1.) not the zip file.
7. Activation is done automaticly in 1-3 minutes.
8. In iNdependence switch to "Jailbreak"
9. Hit "Perform Jailbreak". iNdependence again wants to know the location of the folder (1)
10. After Jailbreak switch to "SSH" (installing SSH requires a jailbroken iPhone)
11. Hit "Install SSH/SFTP/SCP". Upon installing you have to shut down and restart the iPhone twice. iNdependence will inform you onscreen - easy. You have to install SSH/SFTP/SCP cause iNdependence will use the installed SSH-server later on at installation of anySIM.app
12. Hit "Change Password". Dialog shows up. In "account name" type "root" (without quotes) and select a password of your choice. Hit "OK".
13. Hit "Change Password". Dialog shows up. In "account name" type "mobile" (without quotes) and select a password of your choice. Hit "OK".
--> explanation: iPhone has the two users root and mobile. Changing their password makes sense, cause you dont want anyone in reach of you wlan access your phone ;-)
13b. You may take the AT&T simcard that came with the phone now out of your iPhone
14. In iNdependence switch to "Customize" and select "Application". Hit the "Add" Button and select anySIM (the solution from the dev team) that should be sitting on your desktop. Follow the process, the software gets installed.
15. OK, one more: After hitting "Applications" (14) you have to hit "User" for user installed applications. Then hit "Add". iNdependence wants to know the IP-Number of your iPhone. You should have set this already to use the iPhone. Find IP at "Settings"->"Wi-Fi" on the phone. You need the root password you have set previously in 12. iNdependence sets the correct permissions after transferring the app (anySIM).
On your phone goto settings genral,autolock never.
On the iPhone goto "Settings"->"General"->"Autolock" and select "Never"
On the springboard hit anySIM.
Wait for the app anySIM to finish the unlock process. Restart the iPhone. After restart put in you private (own) simcard and do just the activation with iNdependence once more again - then enjoy the free iPhone.
You may leave the iPhone jailbroken, no known harm.
And one note from a Mac user: we are not that unable to do some tasks. Was even more tricky for me to write that up in english (i'm german) than doing the process. It works
