I am about to take delivery of a 16GB iPhone which I want to unlock, jailbreak and activate.
I understand, from perusing these hallowed forums, that ziPhone will do all of this plus installing Installer.app AND allow use of the Google Maps 'locate me' feature by virtue of the unchanged baseband. Yet his method is regarded as more dubious - possibly even illegal - because it changes the IMEI.
I also understand iNdependence will do the jailbreak unlock and activate, but downgrades the baseband, doesn't install Installer.app and Google Maps locate me won't work (would it even work in Europe anyway?). Yet his solution seems to be widely held to be cleaner and more sophisticated - less 'hacky', if you will.
Can anyone confirm the above to be true, and if so, advise my best recourse?
