    Thanks,
    Pls read the thread, the tutorial

    is mentioned above. This will virginize your iPhone - only needed if the iPhone got unlocked with AnySIM 1.0.2 at firmware 1.0.2.

    Hi Volkspost,

    My iPhone 2G is already unlocked when I purchased it back in Dec 2007, how do I tell whether it was done by AnySIM 1.0.2 or not? Would virginizing hurt if the phone was not unlocked by AnySIM 1.0.2?

    Thanks,

    No it wont hurt the iPhone. If I were you and would not know the unlock method I'd defenitely virginize. Just read the tutorial first and take your time then, no need to rush things. When doing this workshop I had virginized my iPhone 2G about 20 times, it is so virgin - almost not born ;-)
    It is still working of cause, restored after virginizing to 2.2.1 (was the recent firmware that time). Right now after virginizing restore straight to firmware 3.0 then do the unlock-boogie.

    happy hacking,
    v.

    Smile Worked - finally

    I just upgraded my iPhone 2G 1.02 to 3.0 following instructions.

    There was a HUGE SCARE when my phone could not be restored to Firmware 3.0. I tried iTunes restore from several computers, DFU - always got "error 10".

    Following instructions from another post (sorry, didn't keep track who deserves the credit) I updated iTunes to 8.2 and restored again. This time it worked just fine! It seems that in order to upgrade tp FW 3.0 you need to be on iTunes 8.2!

    To summarize:
    My FW 1.02 (unlocked and on T-Mobile US) was first re-virginized, then restored to FW 3.0 using iTunes 8.2, and then jailbroken and unlockes again using redsn0w. Everything works. Donation to hackingt0sh made, they deserve it.

    Hope this helps others

    Correct and congrats, that's exactly the way to go for if your iPhone is at firmware 1.0.2 and used to be unlocked with AnySIM 1.0.2. And yes, for FW 3 iTunes 8.2 is needed.

    Happy hacking,

    First of all, thanks guys, this thread has been the most helpful read for someone like who has no clue how to unlock my iphone.

    Sorry to bother you further but I got a few questions. I have a first-gen iPhone that was unlocked when I got it & has version 1.0.2 loaded and I am still using iTunes 7.6.2 on my Mac.

    I understand the best route for me is to re-virginize my phone and upgrade to 3.0 and use redsn0w to unlock however was wondering if apply releasing 3.1 complicates matters for me at all.

    I have downloaded the following files in preparation for the upgrade process:
    -iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw
    -iTunes8.2.dmg

    Is there anything else I am missing before I get started? This will probably sound stupid to those of you that are knowledgeable but since software 3.1 has been released, won't iTunes try to update my iphone software to 3.1? Is this ok? Thanks in advance everyone, I appreciate your help!!

    Correct way. Use iPhone Firmware 3.0.1 (NOT 3.1) instead 3.0. You first virginize then Restore stright to 3.0.1. You use Redsnow then and the 3.0.0 firmware file to jailbreak/activate/unlock. Here is a good tutorial, jump in at step three.
    Two more important things: take your time when virginizing the iPhone, dont push things.
    When done at the end (jailbroken, activated/unlocked at fw 3.0.1) connect with itunes (you may use iTunes 9 then). iTunes will offer then to "restore data from a backup". Dont choose this one, instead go for "setup as a new iphone". from 1.0.2 to 3.0.1 is a major update, restore would bring back really old and outdated file to your iPhone and render it inoperable.
    After setting up as a new iPhone you sync as usual.

    Correct. the only difference between 3.0 and 3.0.1 is that Apple fixed a security hole in the sms app. kernel and stuff remain the same. This is one of the reasons why you use fw 3.0 for the jailbreak with redsn0w.
