iPhone Update 1.1.2 and SimFree v1.8 news

We would like to let all our valued customers know that all testing for update 1.1.2 version phones is now complete. Yet again, SimFree remained completely unlocked and restore resistant for 1.1.2 version phones but we wanted to check and verify new updates to the OS region changes before recommending trouble free updates. As with all updates, the phone needs to be jail-broken and activated again for it to function. Thanks to the great work of the community, jail-breaking a 1.1.2 phone is now possible and works great.

We would like to also bring your attention to the recent events surrounding the iPhone Scene around the world. The recent launch of the European iPhone has introduced a new Bootloader which "currently" does not allow any kind of unlocking. The same Bootloader is present on the new iPhones that are purchased in the US with 1.1.2 pre-installed.

We are also ready to release SimFree v1.8 which is for people who got their base-bands updated to 04.02.13_G before using SimFree. This version must be used on a 1.1.1 Phone (with old bootloader) and then you will be able to update to 1.1.2 and still remain unlocked.

As a reminder, customers who have used any version of SimFree in the past are NOT required to re-unlock their phone for this update!

Procedure to update to 1.1.2 from older versions:

1. In Installer go to Tweaks 1.1.1 and install Oktoprep.
2. Open iTunes and hit Update in order to install 1.1.2 (note that if you press Restore it wont work)
3. After that is done, download Jailbreak-1.1.2 and proceed with the Jailbreak procedure. (for Windows & Mac)
4. You will want to install iWorld from Installer after you update (found in Tweaks 1.1.2) in order to fix a known 1.1.2 crash caused with Unsupported Carriers.

The procedure to Install SimFree v1.8 on your Phone remains the same as before. Just add http://tinyurl.com/2qxpe6 in the Installer Sources and you will have the option to install SimFree v1.8 on your phone.

Keep your eyes pealed for more news soon to come.

Q & A For iPhoneSimFree Users and 1.1.1 iPhone Update

Seems there is a bit of confusion about our last post. Here are some of the most common questions, with some corresponding answers.

Q. Why do you say it is unlocked if you can't activate a non AT&T sim?
A. There is a difference between unlocking and activation. Unlocking is related to GSM standards and allowing a sim to be used on different carriers, and activation is something made up by apple to further restrict their users. After upgrading to 1.1.1 the radio of the phone is still unlocked, meaning it can still connect to other carriers, but apple requires the phone be activated to do so.

Q. How do you know it is unlocked if you can't activate?
A. There are several ways to know this. Firstly, the phone does not report "Incorrect SIM". Secondly the IMEI is correct. Thirdly if you bring up the field test, you can see the provider is not AT&T. And finally (and coolest of all), there are ways to actually call out and receive calls from the emergency call screen. If you can get the baseband to crash (we do it by calling some emergency numbers with no sim in place) and then insert the non AT&T sim, it can pick up a signal and calls (non-emergency) can be placed and received from the emergency call screen on the non AT&T carrier.

Q. Why does all this matter, if I can't yet use a non AT&T sim?
A. A few reasons. Firstly the phone can still be used by AT&T users after upgrade. Secondly, if apple has patched the methods used to perform the unlock, as long as an activation method is discovered, the phone will work perfectly on other carriers. With other unlocking solutions, if you were to upgrade the phone it would currently be a brick, and if apple has patched the methods to perform the unlock, it would also stay a brick forever..

News concerning iPhone 1.1.1 Update

We have successfully completed a test of the 1.1.1 firmware update on IPSF unlocked phones. We are very pleased to report that the phones are still fully unlocked, and if you are using an original activated AT&T sim, you can activate and use the phone with no issues at all. Unfortunately, currently there is no way to jailbreak/reactivate the phone for use with a sim card other than the original AT&T card. Therefore for our customers who have no immediate need to use alternate providers and are still using their AT&T card, you are welcome to update your phone. For the rest please be patient, as the jailbreak issue is something that affects much more than just the unlocking. The thousands of open source developers who have put a cumulative 10s of thousands of man hours into various apps and tools now have no way to get them onto the phone as well. We are all looking into the jailbreak issue as it affects us all, and we will keep updating our site as well as the open source community at large with any information we can about this.

We also tested an AnySim unlocked phone, and after the update it appeared to be relocked. The IMEI was reported as 004999010640000 (see below), and a T-Mobile sim was reported by the phone as an "Incorrect SIM" rather than the new "Different SIM Detected" message.


The 004999010640000 issue (Resellers please take note):

004999010640000 is a special IMEI number reported back by a phone in "lockdown" mode. We have seen this a few times mostly in relation to other unlocking methods. We are currently updating our servers to accommodate new customers wishing to recover their phones from lockdown mode, but it is essential that the REAL IMEI of the phone is passed on to our servers, or else the server will not issue the unlock. The real IMEI can be found engraved on the back of the phone or on the back of its retail box. We will update our site when the Servers have been updated to fix lockdown phones.

News concerning Future iPhone Update

It must be made clear at this juncture, that there is a very DISTINCT difference between the method used by iPhoneSimFree and any other product currently available for unlocking your phone.
