    I unlocked my iPhone last week using Ziphone, it worked great, and I have been enjoying my phone on T-mobile ever since. However my phone was an AT&T refurbished, and so it had the old 3.9 bootloader.

    I have a friend that would like me to unlock 2 new iPhones for him, obviously since he will be buying them brand new they will have the 4.6 bootloader, so I want to use iLiberty+. I have a few questions because I have never used it before, and I do not want to mess up two brand new iPhones.

    1. Are there any known problems that I should worry about?

    2. If I check the add installer box when doing the unlock what does that add? Are there things that I should go into the advanced settings to install? (I want to have the exact same settup that I had after I used Ziphone on mine)

    3. Installing BSD subsystems and OpenSSH should be the same right?

    4. If the phones do have problems for some reason I can reverse everything and try it again right?

    5. I don't have to worry about quit the itunes helper or anything right? It will do all of that by itself.

    6. Is there anything else that I should know?

    Please help; he wants me to do this today if possible. Thanks

    1. Are there any known problems that I should worry about?
    - I just passed a thread or two on here about people with lock-up issues, but I don't know what they were or how serious. So far with iLiberty I've done my iPhone, a Touch (twice) and a friends Touch without any problems.

    2. If I check the add installer box when doing the unlock what does that add? Are there things that I should go into the advanced settings to install? (I want to have the exact same settup that I had after I used Ziphone on mine)
    - I didn't do the advanced settings at first. I did try and go back to download/install the BSD Subsystem and got message that it isn't available yet. I ended up just getting it through the installer. You'll want the installer if you plan on using 3rd Party Apps.

    3. Installing BSD subsystems and OpenSSH should be the same right?
    - Through installer, yes.

    4. If the phones do have problems for some reason I can reverse everything and try it again right?
    - Correct (in theory). I did my Touch 2x, I was selling it to give to a friend (since i just got the iPhone) and did ran through iLiberty twice without any problems (One before and once after I did a restore).

    5. I don't have to worry about quit the itunes helper or anything right? It will do all of that by itself.
    - Right, I had iTunes opened and it closes it automatically.

    6. Is there anything else that I should know?
    - Um, just that iLiberty seems like the fastest, easiest, safest way to unlock/activate/jailbrake an iPhone or Touch! I literally took my new iPhone out of the box, connected it to my MBP, cancelled the iTunes activation and ran iLiberty. about 7 minutes later I had a fully unlocked, activated, jailbroken iPhone! :)

    GOOD LUCK!

    Thanks for your help, iLiberty worked great after a few problems at the beginning.

    I unlocked and 8GB iPhone, and a 16GB iPhone.

    I am now having problems with both of them saving settings though. I need to get my friends back and mess with it before I can know exactly what the problem is.

    Has anyone else experienced problems like this?
