iPhone Hacking: Updating my 1.1.1 Unlocked iPhone to 1.1.2, then 1.1.3 (Activate, Jailbreak, Unlock, oh my!)

I tried this http://cre.ations.net/blog/post/the-113-soft-upgrade-jailbreak-faq but for whatever reason it thinks my phone isn’t 1.1.1 and jailbroken, so I had to find another way.

found this: http://modmyifone.com/wiki/index.php/OsX113devjailbreak

but I am 1.1.1, so need to update to 1.1.2, so I followed this tutorial http://modmyifone.com/wiki/index.php/Getting_Started_iPhone_Modding_OS_X_current_3

Worked great .. well wait, at the end my phone was stuck in restore mode. Doh. What to do? Well, try to restore 1.1.2 again I suppose, probably going down debacle road here.. we will see..well I decided to restore back 1.1.1 (http://modmyifone.com/wiki/index.php/Getting_Started_iPhone_Modding_OS_X_current) first, then go back to 1.1.2 again..

Unlocked 1.1.1 again using the same method I did before (the prefs, but did the jailbreakme.com stuff)

I restored to 1.1.2 then, and it was at emergency screen. I decided to use independence 1.1.3 beta to active/jailbreak 1.1.2 for me, so now I am there, not unlocked yet. I need to get Installer.app on there manually here (http://rapidshare.com/files/87105691/Installer.zip.html)

I then decided to unlock using AnySim 1.2.1u before trying 1.1.3 (maybe just so I could check my text messages in between upgrades? :)) Didn’t work. Forgot to turn on airplane mode. Restored back 1.1.1, then to 1.1.2, but this time I used independence to get it out of restore mode at the end (the tutorial above doesn’t say that – so the first time I did it, I figured I messed up or something! Doh!)

Now, lets unlock this baby using AnySim 1.2.1u (http://modmyifone.com/wiki/index.php/Unlock_the_iPhone_1.1.2_Upgrade) – remembering airplane mode!!!

Ok that worked, now I am on 1.1.2, unlocked, jailbroken, ready to go to 1.1.3..(http://www.modmyifone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27648)

After it running for an hour, then a black screen for a while, I decided to reboot, and BOOM 1.1.3! I love the web clips, I put Facebook, Google Reader and Meebo on the home screen, as well as installed the Contacts Icon app through installer.app (since I am running 1.1.3, jailbroken, and unlocked (T-Mobile))

Whew..I am sure I missed some thing in between here, but I kind of "live blogged" it 🙂

The Google Maps locate map feature doesn’t work by default (known issue when upgrading/unlocking) So I am installing Navizon to try that, I guess it fixes Google Maps (http://repo.navizon.com to sources in Installer.app)
