    Here is a guide ":pFOR WINDOWS:p" i found, im sure a "one button click" will be in the next version of ibrickr.




    This is going to be a PC tuturial assuming you have nothing on your phone (meaning fresh reboot) and you want to unlock with windows.

    First. Get iBrickr here > iBrickr Download page

    Install iBrickr and "Free your phone" following Nate Trues guide on the software.

    Install PXL from iBrickr

    Install Applications in this order from the applications in iBrickr.
    1. Binkit
    2. Installer

    Disconnect your phone from Dock and iBrickr

    Verify you are connected to the internet by going to settings>Wi-fi

    Launch Installer from the icon on your homescreen.

    Install in this order from the Installer app
    1. Community Sources
    2. BSD Subsystem
    3. Open SSH

    Reboot your phone

    Next get the SSH kit for your phone here> SSH kit for windows.
    Unzip the folder to you desktop or wherever you can access it easily

    Run the sshify-windows.bat file from the folder and follow the instructions in the command prompt.

    Get Windows SCP here > Win SCP download

    Run WinScp and then login by entering your ip address (found in settings>WiFi>"your routername >" name: root password :dottie (These are the default)

    Get the Unlock.app files here > Unlock Download

    Navigate to the Applications folder in WinSCP
    1. Drag in Unlock.app to the Applications folder
    2. Go into the Unlock.app folder and set permissions to 0777 or 07555.
    3. Go INSIDE the Unlock.app and set permissions on all files to 0777 or 0755
    Exit WinScp

    Reboot your Phone

    Upon restart..
    Launch the Unlock app by clicking the icon.
    Click the start button ONCE and let it do its thing =) DONT touch anything

    In about 20 mins.. It will tell you its done. Reboot and place your new sim in

    ok

    so this is what they need!

    1)you launch the application on your mac

    2) then plug in your iPhone

    3) Hit the unlock iPhone button in the application on your mac

    4) It takes its time...and then Unlocks it!

    5) You reboot your iPhone and unplug

    6) then you put in your other sim..and it works


    see that would be sweet
    and easy...no terminal or anything hard!
