    Default Is it possible to unlock brand new iPhone

    i am getting a replacement 3G from apple tomorrow. i am a tmobile customer. i understand when you connect your BRAND NEW iphone to itunes, it asks you to activate using the AT&T sim card.

    is it possible then to jailbreak and unlock without activating this? clearly, i do not have the AT&T sim to activate this.

    can i do this ...
    1. once connected to itunes, restore using iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Custom_Restore.ipsw ?
    2. then afterward unlock using ultrsn0w?

    You will, of course need to use RedSn0w in between the restore and the UltraSn0w, but otherwise, yes.

    i thought using the .ipsw will jailbreak the phone
    then ultrasn0w to unlock

    what is the purpose of redsn0w?

    actually, i can use the pwnage to jailbreak
    1. iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3G on OS 3.0 Using PwnageTool (Mac)
    then use utlrasn0w to unlock
    2. iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock the iPhone 3G, 3GS Using UltraSn0w

    i do not know why the other member suggested using redsn0W between step 1 and step 2.

    also, another question. when i get the replacement phone from apple, what if the OS is still 2.2.1? of course, there is no way for me to verify that without having to activate using a ST&T sim which i do not have.

    so my question is, assuming if the OS is 2.2.1, even before i activate it, can i still this method iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3G on OS 3.0 Using PwnageTool (Mac) that is meant for firmware 3.0 to jailbreak?

    or do i absolutely need to activate it, then upgrade to 3.0, then jailbreak using the link above????

    Do not worry about the version of the iPhone FW. You have to:

    - Upgrade iTunes to 8.2.
    - Download the 3.0 Firmware.
    - Use PwnageTool to make a custom IPSW. Remember to select the option "Activate the phone" (see iClarified). DO NOT INSTALL ICY.
    - Put the iPhone in DFU mode (PwnageTool will tell you how to do it).
    - Restore with the custom IPSW made with PwnageTool (Hit Alt + Restore to select it).
    - After the restore, open Cydia (you will need WI-FI connection), first of all install all the essential updates.
    - Add the UltraSn0w repo.
    - Install UltraSn0w and reboot the iphone.

    Then you will have an activated and unlocked iphone.

    thank you! it's good to know i can
    1. jailbreak without even activate the phone with at&t sim card
    2. jailbreak the phone to firmware 3.0 even it's at 2.2.1 originally

    why is it important NOT TO INSTALL ICY? does it cause problem?

    can someone explain these settings in the general settings during jailbreak. what need to be selected??
    - activate the phone
    - enable baseband update
    - disable partition wipe-out

    If during the jailbreak you install Cydia and Icy, they won't work. At the momment Icy is buggy. Just only install Cydia.

    - Activate the phone: If you do not select it, after the jailbreak you will need to activate the iphone through iTunes with an at&t SIM card. If you select it, after the jailbreak the iphone will be activated, you won't need any SIM.

    - Enable baseband update: It will upgrade the baseband to the version that comes with the firmware. For UltraSn0w, you need the baseband version 4.26.08, so you need to update it. When FW 3.1 will be avaliable, probably Apple will upgrade the baseband to block UltraSn0w, so the Dev Team will disble that option.

    - Disable partition wipe-out. The partition wipe-out is for deleting all the previous data.

    Hope it helps...

    thank you very much for the clarifications. i will get my replacement today, and hopefully i can jailbreak using the parameters you specified...
    - install cydia, and NOT icy
    - select 'activate the phone'
    - select 'enable baseband update'

    i will update this after the jailbreak and unlock process. i have never jailbreak and unlock a brand new phone that has not been activated with the AT&T sim card. i am crossing my fingers.

    ** update...**
    jailbreak and unlock went very smoothly for a brand new 3G phone that has never been activated, yay! thank you for everyone's input on this.

    Sorry, just seen this thread again.
    The reason I sugested RedSn0w was because I didn't realise you were using a Mac and pwnage rather than RedSn0w which would have jailbroken and hactivated without the hassle of creating a custom ipsw. RedSn0w is the replacement for quickpwn and is multiplatform, multi device and works with everything from the iPod touch to the 3GS on Mac, windows or Linux so most people use it these days. To tell thge truthe i had forgotten about pwnage on the Mac which, as you have worked out, still does a fine job.

    Enjoy your phone
