    Default The state of things

    Hey all,

    I'm one of those who purchased an iPhone because of the Dev team's great work (maybe Apple should hire you folks because you have contributed sales of ~250,000 to their bottom line). Anyhoo, I unlocked using AnySIM 1.0.2. I had my phone for days reading all the info I could to avoid any issues. It was a painless experience in the end. I have not upgraded to 1.1.1 obviously but I would like to at some point.

    This time around everything is far more confusing. I see guides unlocking never unlocked 1.0.2 and 1.1.1 phones. Those of us who unlocked with AnySIM 1.0.2 before seem to be left in limbo. Many of us are losing faith in the Dev team. They promise us things that never show up. We need some hope. The unlocking experience is so un-apple like. I know its a lot of hackery but the bottom line is, more of us are not cut out to be hackers or programmers by any stretch of the imagination.

    To add to the confusion, another team has showed up delivering on some of the things the Dev Team promised. As tempting as it may be to go their route, it just seems so difficult. And only the Dev Team really knows what part of our phones were messed up with AnySIM and they're probably the best ones to fix the problem.

    Maybe someone can throw us a bone here and tell us where this thing stands. With great power comes great responsibility. And yes we are all very grateful for your time effort and brilliance

    I'm in the same boat....Me and my girlfriend have perfectly functional 1.0.2 phones that I don't want to mess up. They work with Leopard, don't really need the iTunes store but it would be nice to have as an option.

    It would also be nice to be more up to date but at the moment, there's too much noise and confusion, too many methods with too many posts from folks who've bricked their phones.

    Unless the Dev team come up with something really straight forward, I'm sticking with 1.0.2.

    I am thinking the same, I also have a full functional 1.0.2 and I feel its most secure to just chill it out until the methods gets far more secure and stable to use and update. I dont miss any features on my iphone and I am happy to run firmware 1.0.2 for now. It's pretty much chaos when it comes to guides etc for now...

    Default Happiness is ..........

    For any NOOBIE, I would suggest that you follow the process as separate goals, and stop at each achievement, and study the next steps carefully..

    !. Re-virginize. This is a very tedious process, but it works! The difficult part was getting Mobile Terminal and using it.

    2. Upgrade to FW 1.1.1 (easy).

    3. Jailbreak. I chose Carnival.

    4. Unlock with AnySim1.1 I used WinSCP and changed octal codes which I do not understand.

    Celebrated after I saw T-mobile back on my phone!

    octal code:
    example: 775
    the attribute on the file look like (run ls -al)

    -rwx rwx r-x 1 root admin 30056 Sep 19 18:43 DemoApp
    7 7 5
    convert decimal to binary code'
    7 = 111 (read, write, execute)
    5 = 101 (read, nowrite, execute)

    the leftmost is for user
    the middle group is for group
    the last group is for other

    More reading and better explanation here: http://docweb.cns.ufl.edu/docs/d0107/ar07s09.html

    When you download anySIM to your computer it does not have any Unix attributes. That's why you need to set the octal when you transfer over to the phone - the octal dictates what you can do with that file. If you don't want to be able to delete it, you can set it for 555

    I don't mean to be disrespectful, and I just about follow what was said in the above quote, but I just don't want to have to go so deep. SSH'ing files to my phone and installing apps is kind of my level. I know if I try and fail to upgrade to 1.1.1, I'll spend days (which I can't afford) trying to get it working again, all the while cursing myself for risking it for such perceivably small gain.

    But fair play to those who do take the plunge....Someone has to and it's all part of the journey towards a one or two stage, GUI oriented solution.
