Below is the guide I used to take a brand new 1.1.1 iPhone any unlocked it using anySIM. The one note I have for anyone new to the iPhone is that when it asks you to reboot by holding home + sleep/wake only hold it long enough to bring up the screen that says "Slide to power off" then slide to power off the phone. Holding down the home + sleep/wake buttons until the phone turns off will not allow for proper installation of files. Throughout the process I used the SIM card I intended to use after unlocking (I immediately took out the AT&T card) Files you will need: iNdependence 1.2.4 (http://code.google.com/p/independence/) anySIM 1.2 (http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/anySIM-1.1.zip) iPhone 1.0.2 Firmware (http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite....8_Restore.ipsw) ** When downloading the firmware from Apple you will need two copies: One that remains in .ipsw form and another that has been unzipped and put into a folder on your desktop ** Part 1: Downgrading to 1.0.2 01. Connect the iPhone to your computer 02. Shut down iTunes 03. Open Activity Monitor and ensure that iTunes helper is also closed 04. Launch iNdependence 1.2.4 and check Status to ensure that your phone is Firmware 1.1.1 05. Select the Firmware tab and then select "Enter DFU Mode" 06. When asked for the firmware files navigate to the folder where you expanded the Apple 1.0.2 firmware .zip file and select "Ok" (If you get an error message quit iNdependence and start again from step 4) 07. Once successful, select "Ok" and quit iNdependence 08. Launch iTunes. It will notify you of an iPhone in recovery mode, select "Ok" 09. Selecting the iPhone on the left panel in iTunes, hold down the Option key and click "Restore" 10. Navigate to and chose the .ipsw file you downloaded from Apple 11. iTunes will begin to restore the firmware and it may take a while 12. When finished, iTunes will tell you that the phone could not be restored but that is perfectly ok 13. The iPhone will now show a yellow triangle and iTunes will tell you that you need to restore..

The status bar should now show that your phone is firmware 1.0.2 Part 2: Activate your iPhone while in 1.0.2 01. Ensure there is a SIM card in your phone 02. Launch iNdependence 03.

Select the Jailbreak tab and select "Perform Jailbreak" 03. When prompted, navigate to and select the firmware folder 04.
