How to update iPhone 1.1.1 to 1.1.2 Unlocked (9 simple steps for Mac & PC)


Notes & Warnings

-I don't know why but almost all the other guides I've seen on the net have you restoring all the way down to 1.0.2. That's unnecessary.

-Though I haven't tried it, the same procedure will also work for 1.0.2 phones. You may need to revirginise first.

-Look here for 1.0.2 revirginizing.

-This will not work on OOTB iPhones with the new 4.6 bootloader. (OOTB at the moment are 1.1.2s. Rumour has it that some new 1.1.1s are coming with the new bootloader too.)

-Don't be afraid to try. Even if you missed a step, you'll just have to start over. There's almost no chance of bricking the iPhone.

-Having said that, here are 3 warnings:

- 1. Do this at your own risk.

- 2. For those still on 1.0.2. If your iPhone has been unlocked previously with AnySIM 1.0, it must be virginised first.

- 3. Do not run AnySIM 1.2.1u in 1.1.2.



My starting point was a virginised, activated, jailbroken, unlocked 1.1.1 iPhone. (which most of us have)

You'll also need a WiFi connection for the iPhone.


Software required (Mac)

- iTunes 7.4.2 (for iPhone Restore & Update)

- iNdependence 1.2.5 (PC users will need iPhuc or iBrckr instead of iNdependence, they are only used to kick the iPhone out of DFU mode)

- If you're using iTunes 7.5, you'll need iNdependence_v1.3_beta2 & MobileDevice_7_4_2.framework.zip

Download iNdependence_v1.3_beta2.zip

Download MobileDevice_7_4_2.framework.zip

- FuGu (Mac sftp, scp client for copying files to the iPhone) Download Fugu-1.2.0-English.rar

- WinSCP for Windows


Files Required (All links on rap1dshare.com)

- Apple iPhone Firmware 1.1.1



- Apple iPhone Firmware 1.1.2



- AnySIM 1.2.1u (for unlocking) Download anySIM1.2.1u-independence125

- 1.1.2 Jailbreak Download 1.1.2-jailbreak-UPDATED.zip

- BSDSubsystem, OpenSSH & Oktoprep via Installer

- pntedit Download pntedit_build_3.zip


Steps *Please note distinction between Restore & Update.

1. Restore* to 1.1.2 using iTunes

Put your iPhone into recovery mode. (Hold Power & Home buttons. When screen goes black, release Power only. While still holding Home, plug in the cable.)

Click Restore.

This will give us 1.1.2 and baseband 04.02.13_G


2. Restore* down to 1.1.1 using iTunes

Put your iPhone into recovery mode (see above) & connect to computer, option-click Restore

Select the iPhone 1.1.1 ipsw file.

It will end with a 1015 error. That's OK.

Quit itunes and open iNdependence. iNdependence will kick the iPhone out of recovery mode.

PC users, use iBrickr

or iPhuc and issue the following commands:

cmd setenv auto-boot true

cmd saveenv

cmd fsboot

This will give us 1.1.1 and retain baseband 04.02.13_G


3. Activate & Jailbreak 1.1.1 using jailbreakme.com

Instructions from http://jailbreakme.com/safari.html

This will also install Installer for you.


4. Install BSDSubsystem & OpenSSH

Use Installer to install the above 2.


5. Unlock 1.1.1 using AnySIM 1.2.1u

Set Auto-Lock to Never.

Use FuGu or WinSCP to copy AnySIM 1.2.1u to /Applications on the iPhone.

Run AnySIM to unlock the iPhone.


6. Install & run Oktoprep on 1.1.1

Use Installer to install Oktoprep and then run it. It's in Tweaks (1.1.1)


7. Update* to 1.1.2 using iTunes

Connect iPhone to iTunes and do an update. (NOT RESTORE)

This will give us 1.1.2 and baseband 04.02.13_G.

Phone will still be unlocked but it's jailed & not activated.


8. Activate & Jailbreak using 1.1.2 Jailbreak (the .JAR file)

PC users will need Java Runtime.

Run the 1.1.2 Jailbreak on your Mac/PC

On completion it'll reboot twice.

This will give us activated, jailbroken, unlocked 1.1.2 with baseband 04.02.13_G. (ie the latest & the greatest)


9. Fix dialer/SMS crash with pntedit for AppSupport

Basically you'll need to patch AppSupport with pntedit with the correct values for your country.


Use Installer.app to install iWorld. It's in Tweaks (1.1.2) It fixes the crashes and uses French rules for callerid matching. (untested by myself)


This will fix the iPhone crashing when you try to dial using the keypad.

Calling from an Address Book entry is OK.

this is a great guide... though i had to install terminal before i proceed to step 5


i used iBrickr to transfer the files manually coz im more familiar with that then went to terminal and issued this command


# chmod +x /Applications/anySIM.app/anySIM


Set Auto-Lock to Never.


restarted my iPhone


Run AnySIM to unlock the iPhone and when done.. i was prompted to Restart iPhone and wait until it restarted again automatically and





Great job soonwai.. i have now an iPhone with 1.1.2 firmware and i was so happy.
