iPhone with firmware 1.1.2 OOTB: software unlocking arrives
If you are among the buyers of a phone not yet activated with AT&T and with firmware 1.1.2 on board out of the box (OOTB), purchased before January 15 in an American AppleStore, perhaps you don't have to resort to Sim-pecette or such devils. .
GeoHot, which was historically the first to totally unlock the iPhone SIM via hardware and had managed to repeat the feat with firmware 1.1.2 last January, has put a line on this page the software and the software tutorial to make iPhones that arrive with firmware 1.1.2 on board can be used with any SIM.
The tutorial obviously not within everyone's reach and the operations include in some a "downgrade" of the firmware but both the author's blog testimonials and the very first reports of some Macitynet readers testify that it is fully effective on iPhones purchased before January 15th.
The author ensures that a software solution is also arriving for version 1.1.3 of the firmware and throws a few arrows at the members of the two "historical" iPhone hacking teams who have been at work for some time, with little success on a similar solution.
In any case, we remind you that unlocking operations invalidate the warranty of your iPhone and if carried out clumsily they can bring it to the state of total unusability.
