    Ok, I have an anySIM 1.1 Unlocked iPhone. It has firmware 1.1.1 and it came with 1.1.1 OTB. I want to restore it as the latest update of Customize has caused some issues. I already know how to go into iTunes and select the 1.1.1 firmware file and I have it on my computer. I'm just wondering... Can I just restore my iPhone through iTunes? Would it hurt the baseband or anything since its anySIM unlocked?

    I don't want to update to 1.1.2. I just want to restore my phone. Can I just go into iTunes and restore my phone to 1.1.1, then activate and jailbreak?

    Bring up that link and about a quarter way down there should be a link to "the guide to unlock 1.1.1". I think you will need to virginize before you can unlock again...someone correct me if I wrong about that. I'm pretty sure that after the restore, you will be locked again.

    Just curious, why don't you want to go to 1.1.2??

    I don't know why I wouldn't. I'm just scared that I'm gonna brick my phone I guess. So I restore in iTunes and then virginize? Wouldn't I have to activate and jailbreak and then virginize with the app in Installer?

    no need to activate just jailbreak then virginize. I know it seems kinda redundant but when I did it without virginizing in the past, I had a whole bunch of crazy issues like it rebooting randomly, freezing when a call or text came in, etc and all intermitently. It drove me crazy

    When you didn't virginize after restoring, did you have any problems with SMS not working right? for example: sending texts to someone and them only getting some of them.

    No. One of the issues I was having was my iPhone not waking from sleep. Also would shut down intermittently. Never had any issues with SMS.

    Try this one after virginizing through installer:

    You won't have to go all the way to 1.0.2.

    There are a couple of threads on here that explain virginizing but the way I do it is through installer.

    After Jailbreaking, install BSD Subsystem (i think its in the "system" category)

    Add: i.unlock.no to your sources and refresh then install "the virginizer" from the "Unlocking Tools" category.

    After virginizing, you will need to restore to 1.1.1 and then jailbreak and unlock like normal
