iPhone 1.1.1 Unlocked

Since the iPhone “revirginizer” tool was released today I went about the task of finally upgrading my unlocked 1.0.2 iPhone to the latest firmware. It definitely took a little longer than last time, but it all came out just fine at the end again. I had unlocked my iPhone originally using the iUnlock application and the guide from ModMyiPhone.com.
I haven’t seen a guide that’s quite as easy to follow for the 1.1.1 release, but if you follow the 3 links below in order you should be able to upgrade, activate and unlock the phone again.

  1. Revirginize your phone with these instructions
  2. Activate the 1.0.2 firmware, update to 1.1.1 and activate the 1.1.1 firmware using Independence
  3. Copy anySIM 1.1 to your phone and run to unlock

Hi there. My name is Tom Pacyk and this is my small home on the web. I love the intersection of design, technology, and communication, which is a combination that led me to a career in sales and marketing roles at places like Zoom and ServiceNow. They're a bit old now, but I also had the opportunity to publish a couple of books along the way.

Portland, Oregon is home for me, my wife Beth, and our three kids, but I'm actually a Midwestern transplant—I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and went to school at Purdue and Illinois. When I find some free time I'm probably going to concerts, rooting for the Portland Timbers, or working on my Sunshine Burn Photography project.
