    Don't even try if you don't meet all of the following requirements:
Must have an Intel Mac. Sorry PPC/Windows users
Comfortable with the Terminal
You absolutely need an AT&T iPhone account
    Do not follow this guide if:
You have attempted to unlock your iPhone
You do not have an AT&T iPhone account
You're afraid you may brick your iPhone. It's safe, but we don't want to hear you complain.
    Do not use iNdependence for activation or the traditional AppTapp install method. They will break your 1.1.1 installation.
    Heed these warnings. If you disregard them, you may end up with a brick
    All that having been said, lets begin:

    Jailbreaking Steps

    1. Sync and pray
    -- 1. Sync your iPhone with iTunes. You'll be losing all of your information, so it's a good idea to back up
    2. Downgrade to v1.0.2
    --1. Hold down the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds. The phone should shut down.
    --2. When the phone shuts down, release the Sleep/Wake button but continue holding Home
    --3. Wait until iTunes recognizes the iPhone. The screen will appear to be off, but iTunes will eventually recognize the iPhone. When it does, let go.
    --4. A message will appear telling you to restore. Click OK
    --5. Using your favorite browser, download the v1.0.2 software from this location. You may need to rename to .ipsw if it comes as a .zip
    --6. Back in iTunes, hold Option on the Mac or Shift on the PC while clicking Restore. Navigate to the software you downloaded and select it.
    --7. The phone will restore, but it will fail. This is normal.
    --8. Your iPhone should show a yellow triangle. Run Nullriver's AppTapp. It should bring you back to the Activation step on the phone and show an error in the application. Disregard the error.
    --9. Run AppTapp again and it should succeed.
    --10. If not using an AT&T SIM, use INdependence to activate your iPhone. That's it!
    3. Create Symlink
    --1. If you haven't already, install Nullriver's AppTapp
    --2. Go to http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/beta in iPhone's Safari. Tap "Yes" to add to Installer
    --3. Plug iPhone in and open iTunes. Make sure it's recognized before proceeding
    --4. Using Installer, install "Trip1Prepz" located under "System"
    4. Upgrade to v1.1.1
    --1. In iTunes click "Upgrade" and not Restore. Restoring will ruin our progress.
    --2. Once upgraded to 1.1.1, close iTunes
    5. Jailbreak
    --1. Download iPHUC and friends from Rapidshare
    --2. Extract the contents so that iphuc, fstab, and iphonefs are all on the Desktop
    --3. If you don't have libreadline, download it and extract the zip to your Macintosh HD
    --4. Open Terminal.app located in Applications>Utilities
    --5. Type cd ~/Desktop and hit return
    --6. Type ./iphuc and hit return
    --7. Type getfile /dev/rdisk0s1 iphonefs/rdisk0s1 314572800 and hit return. This will take about five minutes so grab something to drink in the meantime. Once complete, there will be a file named "rdisk0s1" in your "iphonefs" folder
    --8. Add .dmg to the end of the file. It should end up being rdisk0s1.dmg
    --9. Double click the file to mount it
    --10. Open the newly mounted Snowbird3A109a.UserBundle drive and open the "etc" folder. Replace the fstab file inside the "etc" folder with the supplied fstab file.
    --11. Unmount the image
    --12. Back in Terminal, assuming that you've kept iPHUC up and running, type putfile iphonefs/rdisk0s1.dmg /dev/rdisk0s1 and hit return. This will take another minute or so. When it's finished, reboot the iPhone. You're jailbroken!
    6. Install SSH
    --1. Download iNdependence from its Google code page here
    --2. Open iNdependence and go to the "SSH" tab
    --3. Click "Install SSH/SFTP/SCP" and follow the instructions. It will ask to reboot the iPhone several times
    --4. When you're done, SSH into your iPhone from the Terminal by typing ssh -l root your.iphones.ip.address. When asked the password is alpine. If it gives a fuss, you may need to remove the "known_hosts" file from /Users/YourUser/.ssh/
    --5. Accept the key by typing yes and hitting return if asked. Leave the window open.
    --6. Open your favorite FTP (I recommend CyberDuck) client and log in using your iPhone's IP address, root for the username and alpine for the password. Make sure to use SFTP and not plain old FTP
    --7. If you're not already there, navigate to /var/root and rename Media to Media_sym
    --8. Rename MediaBackup to Media. Keep the FTP and SSH windows open.
    --9. Open iTunes and allow it to activate
    7. Install AppTapp
    --1. Download Nullriver's AppTapp
    --2. Right click or control click AppTapp Installer and click "Show Package Contents". Navigate to Contents>Resources
    --3. Using the FTP application, copy Installer.app from the Resources folder into the Applications folder on your iPhone
    --4. Back in the terminal, SSH into your iPhone again (if you're not already), give the comand chmod -Rf +x /Applications/ and hit return.
    --5. Slide to unlock your iPhone then type /Applications/Installer.app/Installer and hit return to launch Installer.
    --6. After AppTapp opens, press control+c to close it
    --7. Open Safari on iPhone and navigate to http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/beta
    --8. Tap yes to add it to Installer
    --9. Back in terminal, using ssh, type /Applications/Installer.app/Installer and hit return to launch Installer again.
    --10. Install Trip1PogoStick located under the "System" category to enable scrolling and applications.
    --11. When you're done, reboot the iPhone and close all your windows. You now have AppTapp.

    Most apps need a recompile to work well with 1.1.1.....actually a lot of the apps in installer.app crash right now.

    I am already on iPhone version 1.02 so I will be ok if I just leave it here and skip step 2 correct? Or would it be better to get version 1.1.1 then downgrade?
    Also I think I have used jailbreak before to unlock my phone... but not for any actual carrier changes or anything... it was just part of the process for 3rd party apps. Does this mean I should not do it? Is there anyway to make it so It will not see i have ever unlocked it?

    Does jailbreaking mean that 1.1.1 can now be SIM unlocked? I'm going bonkers trying to keep up with all the guides, threads and news releases!:confused:

    NO! Jailbreaking is NOT the same as Sim-Unlock. Read the above post please.... note that is says SPECIFICALLY

    Jailbreaking only allows you access to the iPhone file structure, it does NOTHING for Sim Unlocking. That is a separate (and not yet done) process.

    Then its best to wait until you read a thread titled, "iPhone 1.1.1 now SIM-unlocked". As soon as 1.1.1 is SIM-unlocked you bet it will be posted everywhere.

    If those instructions are too heavy for you to follow just wait until a version of AppTap automates the process. It happened last time and will happen the same way this tiome round.

    If you are on 1.0.2 don't upgrade, and if you foolishly upgraded to 1.1.1 well then...sucks to be you. :D

    Has anyone just called and asked for an unlock code for the iPhone. You do know they are required by law to give it to you right?

    I did, and they transferred my call directly to Steve Jobs. As it turns out, the law says that he is personally responsible for passing out unlock codes.

    And Darngooddesign,

    Calm down guys. I'm not doing anything and am trying to follow what's going on intellectually. I'm not some newbie popping in here with idiotic posts saying "OMFG, I can unlock now with jailbreak" or "OMG, I'm now bricked"

    You all know a lot more about this and in the time it takes to be snarky, you can type a one line response just helping me understand it better.

    I've been around this forum a while so do me the courtesy of not making me look and sound like a complete moron who has just found this forum from a link on engadget or CNN or wherever.

    I wasn't agitated, I answered simply that if those instructions are too heavy wait until the process is streamlined.

    It's really not that bad if you know anything about Unix programs or using the terminal. It works great....my only problem is that most apps aren't 1.1.1 ready just yet.

    actually ....go ahead and try it.... its not the law its just good practice.... but i'll look into the actual law/legistture for the exact quote.... i believe it only states you have the right to reverse engineer the device to use on another carrier

    I would love to see something that actually states it is OK to "reverse engineer" someone's Intellectual Property. I just can not fathom that.

    No problems at all? I'm a bit hesitant to jailbreak it again - not sure if it is too premature. I suppose I could always do a restore but I'm kind of worried. Any tips?

    Thanks for posting this great info. It's REALLY encouraging to see the progress. It won't be long now till we get a GUI and AppTapp again.

    In the meantime, unless you're one of the heroic and intelligent bushwhackers who are hacking their way through the iJungle, why in the world would you risk screwing up your phone just so you can buy music and ringtones?

    I wonder if Apple is tracking how many of us have upgraded firmware. I'd bet they are, being the highly intelligent folk they are.

    Patience is a virtue...and can save your butt in this situation.

    v1.0.2 and holding...:apple:
