    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I am pissed, everyone keeps using the word virginize for problems that does not need one. I want to clarify this matter once and for all. Please STOP throwing around the word re-virginize, cause you sound dumb as fcuk.

    Question: Do I need to re-virginze/virginize my phone?
    Answer: You ONLY re-virginize your iphone IF and ONLY IF you have unlocked your iphone with anySIM 1.02 or lesser AND you want to update it to firmware 1.1.1

    1. What does Out of Box (OTB), virgin iphone means?
    a. You just open and take it out of the box
    b. You activate it legitly through ATT and have been paying their blood thirsting plans
    c. YOu used to unlock/jailbreak/fake activate/install 3rd party/molest it and you have re-virgnized the phone *properly*

    2. Is restoring the same as virginizing?
    a. No, they are different. Virginizing is taking your modified iphone back to #1 above (it reflash the baseband, fix the corrupted seczones, etc). Basically re-virginizing means taking your unlocked phone to a locked out of the box condition phone.
    b. Restoring through itunes is the same as reinstalling your windows on pc or mac os on mac. It wipes out all the data, giving you a fresh OS.

    3. Can unlock survive restore?
    a. anySIM 1.1 - Yes
    b. IPSF - Yes
    c. old anySIM - Yes (but do NOT use this one anymore)

    4. Can unlock survive a proper virginizer?
    a. I won't go into details of different unlock method, but simple answer is NO the unlock will not survive

    5. What is the different b/w iUnlock_reloaded and anySIM and the old 20 minute Unlock or iUnlock by Erica Sauden?
    a. They are ALL the same with different UI. The core code is the same.

    6. Which is the best unlock method?
    a. The simple answer is the only true unlock is the one Apple is going to provide in the future. All current unlocks have pros and cons.

    7. What are the types of unlocking your iphone (this question only applies to 1.1.1 iphone OTB)?
    a. You can downgrade the software to 1.0.2 (baseband is still 1.1.1) and unlock it. Final result: An unlocked iphone with 1.0.2 OS & 1.1.1 baseband.
    b. You can downgrade the software to 1.0.2 (baseband is still 1.1.1) to create a symlink hack, update it to 1.1.1 back and jailbreak/activate it. Final result: An unlocked iphone with 1.1.1 OS and 1.1.1 baseband.
    c. Use the tiff exploit and jailbreak/activate it and then unlock it

    7i. What are the types of unlocking your iphone (this question only applies to 1.0.2 OTB)?
    a. You can unlock it as it is and have an unlock iphone with 1.0.2 OS and 1.0.2 baseband.
    b. You can create a symlink during 1.0.2 and update it to 1.1.1 and have an unlocked iphone with 1.1.1 OS and baseband.

    8i. My phone is previously unlocked with *any unlocked software* except IPSF & anySIM 1.1, what should I do?
    a. Virginize it properly and follow any unlocking procedure.


    8ii. My phone is previously unlocked with anySIM 1.02/iUnlock and then I unlock it again with anySIM 1.1, what should I do?
    a. Virginize it properly and follow any unlocking procedure.


    9. I am stuck at while doing this or that, what should I do?
    a. Restart over by restoring your iphone (note: restore, not revirginze)

    10. I bought a 1.1.1 phone, should I downgrade the baseband to 1.0.2?
    a. NO it is not recommended to run 1.0.2 baseband with 1.1.1 firmware (OS).
    b. Your best bet is to follow step #7

    11. I can't "slide to unlock" to run anySIM 1.1 on my jailbroken iphone?
    a. You need to change the file permission to 0755 through winscp or using the command chmod. Also, install BSD Subsystem.

    12. Can the unlock survive a baseband FW upgrade or downgrade? (thx to drg)

    IPSF - Yes, up to and including baseband FW 4.0 (the BB FW packaged with OS FW 1.1.1)
    AnySIM 1.02 & friends - No
    AnySIM 1.1.1 - No

    13. My phone shows 300mb and/or cannot sync with iTunes?
    a. Remove symlink hack

    This info is innocent until proven guilty:

    14. Why shouldn't you use Touchfree to jailbreak your iphone?
    a. To make long story short, I will not want to use something that I don't even know what it is doing. Do you know what touchfree is doing to your iphone? I don't. One thing for sure that I know is that touchfree is meant for ipod touch and not iphone. I know touch free use the tiff exploit to gain access, and probably just replace the rdisk0s1 file and get write access. However, it is used to jailbreak ipod touch which has similar but different OS than the iphone. Touchfree installs a lot of unnecessary folder to your iphone.
    b. Reports of slowness of iphone which uses Touchfree to jailbreak can be found in this forum. I found out that IT MIGHT BE the DROPBEAR that is hogging your ram

    15. My phone battery does not last long?
    a. OpenSSH is installed, you need to install "Sevices" and turn off SSH
    b. You jailbroke it using Touchfree OR ANY OTHER METHOD that installs SSH, disable it
    c. To check battery drainage issue, fully charge it. Do not use the phone for 8 hours (best time should be during your bed time) and see if the battery is drain the next morning.

    16. My phone in 1.1.1 is super slow?
    a. Someone said that dropbear is hogging your resources, I've tried removing it but my iphone is still as fast as before (I don't have slowness problem).

    17. How to install anySIM 1.1 on iphone 1.1.1?
    a. Go to Step 15 of this guide: http://www.hacktheiphone.com/111/iph...2_windows.html

    18. How to multi swap sim card on the go?
    a. Winscp and copy a patched lockdownd 1.1.1 file to /usr/libexec

    19. How to set up IMAP Gmail?
    a. http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthre...625#post101625

    20. My bluetooth cannot detect other phone's bluetooth?
    a. Currently our iphone's bluetooth ONLY works with headset, wait for future update.

    21. How to restore or downgrade (OS only, NOT baseband)?
    a. To downgrade (1.1.1 to 1.0.2) enter DFU mode - use iBrickr v0.91 or home+sleep until an icon show up and then let go sleep and keep holding home for another 10 seconds
    b. To restore hold home+sleep until yellow triangle (1.0.2) shows up or the new icons (1.1.1) shows up.

    22. I have an iphone, activated & contracted with ATT for 2 years, updated with 1.1.1 - Now I want to be able to install application. I'm willing to take risk if my phone breaks or will be broken with future updates. How do I get the application on my phone?
    a. 1.0.2--> use iBrickr 0.91 to install 3rd party apps
    b. 1.1.1---> At this point you don't have any option on how to install 3rd party apps. You have to do a jailbreak by either tiff exploit or symlink hack. Follow the links at the "baby-feeding" section

    23. I have disabled SSH on services.app but I still can Winscp to my phone?
    a. Remove Dropbear: Here is how to remove dropbear: http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showpost...68&postcount=6

    AnySIM 1.1 could survive a FW restore... *IF* just the OS FW is flashed by iTunes and the baseband FW remains untouched. However anySIM 1.1 does not survive a bbupdate. Nor would it survive an upgrade from baseband FW 3.x to 4.x.
