    I just got an iPhone from a guy and wanted some help unlocking it or to be pointed in the right direction. I have done some searching and reading but none that has worked in success. I have firmware 1.1.2 and the guy has had the phone for 4 months before me so I assume thats not the origonal that came on the phone. Can some of you guys help me, I want to be able to change my main screen buttons with new Apps, and change the background from black to a photo. Please help, thanks!!!

    Try searching these forums for downgrading firmware (1.1.2 - 1.1.1) and jailbreaking methods. There's more than you could ever hope to find...

    I had read that if you have 1.1.2 OTB (Out of The Box) that you cannot downgrade to a 'hackable' firmware. I hope this is untrue though

    If you install summerboard and customize, you should be able to mod your iPhone all you want. If you want to design your own themes you can upload them via ssh.
