    Question Two n00b questions...

    Yes, I searched what I thought would be easy answers to find, apparently are not.

    Question 1: I should have the SIM card I want to use in my phone through out the whole upgrade downgrade re-upgrade/unlock procedure right? In other words there is no time that it needs to be out is there? Does it matter?

    Question 2: I did said process and anySIM 1.2.1u "successfully" unlocked my phone, yet I still get the incorrect SIM message along with no service. I was told that I need to patch the lockdownd file. Isn't the lockdownd process only for people who have the new bootloader that comes with new 1.1.2 OTB phones?

    Question 1: I don't think it matters what SIM is in your iPhone while you're upgrading/downgrading, but I think the preference is to have the SIM you want to use in the iPhone when running the unlock procedure itself.

    Question 2: Everyone needs that patched lockdownd file on 1.1.2! (Well, everyone who is trying to hack their phone, that is). Remember, the iPhone has several layers of security: one is the SIM-lock, and the other is the activation process. The patched lockdownd file tells the iPhone that it is "factory-activated" and thus doesn't need to go through iTunes (or some other program) to activate each new SIM. Get this file. Use it. It is a blessing.

    That brings my second problem. I don't understand how to use the patched lockdownd file and the only place I can find it is on google code and its not a file it just says a bunch of hex.

    I also don't understand the imei issue of 0049xxxxx. All I know is that it's bad and that I have it. What is it stopping me from doing?

    I'll try and track down a source for the patched lockdownd file later.

    I've never had the bad IMEI number issue, but I believe (and you should check) that you need to virginize your iPhone and then go through the unlock process again.

    i found this



    * There now is a prototype/beta of a patched lockdownd. You can download it here:

    http://**********.com/files/69414087...1.1.2.zip.html
    To test this, you will need SSH access to your phone (which you should have if you are reading this), then do the following:

    1. Log into your phone via ssh.
    2. Navigate to /usr/libexec/
    3. Rename the file "lockdownd" to "lockdownd_orig" (# mv lockdownd lockdownd_orig)
    4. Upload the lockdownd fro the zip file above.
    5. Set the file permissions to octal 555 (# chmod ou+rx)
    6. Reboot the phone - it SHOULD now be activated.


    * [Developers] There is a bit of information available on patching lockdownd.

    Find it here: http://*****************************...ockdownd_Patch

    * [Developers] The dev team has made available a patcher, that allows you to patch the 1.1.2 lockdownd on your PC or directly on the iPhone. You can read more about it on their Wiki page, http://********************************/wiki/Patcher.

    1. Log into your phone via ssh.
    Code:
    Your phone must be jaibroken and have SSH installed on the phone through the installer.
    Once you do this you can use winscp(freeware) to secure ftp on the phone.If its a 1.1.1 username is: root password is: alpine
    2. Navigate to /usr/libexec/
    3. Rename the file "lockdownd" to "lockdownd_orig" (# mv lockdownd lockdownd_orig)

    I tried that. No luck... I think I've given up on trying to get 1.1.2 to work. I can't even get 1.1.1 to work. After the failed attempt with the lockdownd 1.1.2 I restored to 1.1.1, downgraded the base band, restored to 1.1.1 again, tiffed, jailbroke, anySIM 1.1'd and again the phone became "unlocked" but I still have the "incorrect sim" message, and of course, no service.

    I had originally bought the phone with 1.0.2 and a hardware unlock, and tried to upgrade, and through many attempts at everything landed myself in this situation. I currently have the IMEI of 0049XXXXX. Might this have something to do with it. I understand most of the other parts but I don't understand what the IMEI is or why 0049 is bad.

    If anyone would be willing the walk me through this I have most of the messengers and would be very appreciative.
