    I'd be interested to know if anyone has managed to upgrade a 1.02 "dev team method" unlocked phone to 1.1.1 and in the process used ISPF to fix their baseband?

    I did. I unlocked with the terminal method and never upgraded to 1.1.1. I then reflashed my baseband with he original 1.0.2 firmware and than ran the iphonesimfree without my sim installed and than upgraded to 1.1.1 with no problem. This was bedore the announcement today.

    Really? I have done the same thing, but was not sure if i could just install IPSF and run it, then upgrade right to 1.1.1

    Is this what ur saying?

    Also, what service provider are you with?

    MotionxxUSxx : Could you please explain how you used IPSF to upgrade to 1.1.1 in more detail.

    I have an iunlock'd iphone with 1.0.2 on it and modem firmware 03.14.08_G and wish to upgrade and unlock the phone...

    How do I do that? how do I activate the phone so it will work?

    Do I need to understand the hacker jailbreak method released yesterday and is there an activation method already? Will I lose all my contacts and media if I go through the process? Thanks.

    BTW treat me like an idiot when you answer as I would rather be a fool with a working iphone!

    Can somebody explain what, exactly, the difference is between iphonesimfree's method and those used by the iphone dev. team? IPSF says that their method doesn't patch the firmware - so what does it do and how does it do it? Why is it resistant to the firmware updates?

    SIM FREE unlock

    does this mean, u can go to an apple store, pick up a phone, unlock it, jailbreak it and what not and use any other sim that is not AT&T on the iphone or does this just allow u to run 3rd party applications on your iphone for now

    I bought an iphone over ebay which has 1.02 firmware on it and it is allready unlocked - I think this was done via Free iphone unlock.

    Today I ordered over internet the commercial Software iphone-sim-free 1.6.

    Now the question is how to go on ?

    Nust I update first to 1.1.1 so that my iphone is like new again and then start hacking, or can I start now ?

    This is great news. So, the iPhone dev team will have one out today or tomorrow, then, right?

    Although I am not clear on the process myself!


    The jailbeaking method only works on Intel Macs so far and its complicated...

    Soon enough there will be an easy way to jailbreak and activate the phone then you can upgrade the firmware.

    As for IPSF I e-mailed them asking how they fix the iunlock/anysim problem and how to upgrade the firmware and I will let everyone know what they say when they reply!

    I didn't make it clear that I was able to upgrade but the phone could only be used with AT&T on 1.1.1. THis was not a big deal to me since I decided to stay with AT&T and canceled by tmobile account.

    I would say to wait a few more days to allow things to settle down, and a more polished way to Jailbreak and Unlock to come out. I read through the current Jailbreak system, and while I *think* I can do it, I do not want to risk it yet.

    So I for one will sit out a few more days, read some more posts, and hope for a more user-friendly version to come out.

    I'm in the same situation. As far as I can tell, you have 3 options.

    1. Reflash the "locked" baseband onto your phone, then re-unlock with IPSF, then upgrade, jailbreak, activate, etc. This will require you to use the command-line to do some of the fiddling. I'd suggest this if you are capable and _NEED_ 1.1.1 now.

    2. Just upgrade the phone (thus "bricking" it), and then jailbreak, etc, and then run IPSF on 1.1.1. Probably simpler, but personally I'd rather not go this way, as "damaging" the phone in this way (even temporarily) scares me. Plus if you are able to do the jailbreak/activate at this stage, you are probably capable of doing the re-flash in option 1 anyway.

    3. Wait. The tools to jailbreak and activate 1.1.1 are sparkling fresh and not well honed yet. In a few days, they will probably be much more developed and easier to use. In addition, there's always the chance that a free solution will come out that is able to do the "permanent-unlock" like IPSF. This is the best option. If you've been patient on 1.0.2 these last few weeks, try to be patient a few days more at least until it settles down and easy/established methods of everything are determined.

    Hello, i Bowse the web for infos but I do get more and more confused:

    - I have a 1.02 unlocked via dev team iphone

    - yesterday I bought a Simfree Licence and gave them my EMEI and it is now online by them

    - now what to do ?

    I only have a german t-Mobile SIM - no AT&T

    What steps do I have to go to upgrade to 1.1.1 and user my T-Mobile Sim ?

    Anyone wrote that only AT&T is running, is that true ?

    Does SimFreeUnlock also activate the phone or do I need another software ?

    Please ANYBODY HELP !!!

    Please do some research around the web because there might be extra steps you might need to take to get everything working for you. This worked for me but YMMV. Now the warning....


    OK if you want to take this route then this is what you need to do next...

    1) Upgrade to 1.1.1. This WILL brick your phone. (Now your baseband will be v4 )
    2) Downgrade back to 1.02 (I won't post links but try the iphone dev team site on how to do this)
    3) Power down your phone and REMOVE your sim
    4) Power up with the sim removed and Install SimFree.app 1.6 (simplest method is through apptapp installer)
    5) Run SimFree and then this should "fix" your baseband - correcting any damage done when you unlocked originally)
    6) Update back to 1.1.1 via itunes
    7) Jailbreak your 1.1.1 iphone using the newly found methods (again the iphone dev team site can help)
    8) Activate the phone.
    9) Done.

    Good Luck. Personally I'd wait to see what happens with the automated solutions and let these updates mature a bit. But if you are impatient then let me know how you got on!

    Thanky for your post

    Do you need for the last step an original at&t card and account or can I use my T-mobile sim and account ?

    1.1.1 is then working, right ?

    Spanners: You did this to your 1.0.2 unlocked phone and it now works on 1.1.1?

    I also want to ask you about when you downgrade back to 1.0.2 - Don't you have to jailbreak and activate it again BEFORE you can install IPSF? or does the original activation/jailbreak remain there?

    I've been able to upgrade to 1.1.1 via the IPSF unlock method. The question now is how do I get YouTube and Installer.app?
  22. spinstorm macrumors 68000

    Sep 14, 2007
    How did you do that?

    I decided to try using SimFree on my already unlocked iphone to see if it would FIX the firmware...

    And NOTHING HAPPENED - I waiting 5 minutes and not one message or status bar popped up!

    Any ideas?

    Well brilliant I bricked my phone!

    And it was NOT even because I was trying to update windows!

    bloody wininstaller crashed and put me into restore mode!


    I am going to have a go at upgrading and downgrading and unlocking all again and fingers crossed it will ALL work and if it doesnt well then Ill be annoyed but anyway we will see what happens!

    Its gonna be a LONG night!

    I upgraded and downgraded my firmware but iPhoneSimFree seems to crash everytime I try and start it!

    Any ideas how to sort it out? I used WINstaller to download it and put it on as I couldnt get it up on apptapp!
  25. spinstorm macrumors 68000

    Sep 14, 2007
    I am having a conversation with myself clearly!

    I am sure WINstaller is NOT the best way to activate the iphone BUT it is the only way I can find how on here with windows.

    Anyway I managed to redownload IPSF and unlock my phone with the v4 firmware and now its working as before...


    You Tube wont connect! anyone want to give me some advice or do I have to try and work it out myself?

    As far as upgrading to 1.1.1 goes - When there is a GUI method I will do it - the fact is my phone will now still be unlocked when I upgrade so its just a matter of activation on windows and im happy to wait.

    UPDATE: Used the PACAY youtube file to fix it and it now works! I am all set for 1.1.1 just need to have a easier method!
