    I've got an unlocked 1.02 iphone by having a licence of iphonesimfree, and when 1.1.1 was released, i decided to wait until it was possible to have it unlocked and apps on it. Now i think the time has come, especially with, wot seems to be a very easily activate and install 3rd party apps method from jailbreakme.com, but im just a bit hesitant at the mo, and id like your re-assurance:
    Can i just upgrade my iphone from just going into itunes and clicking on update, and then use the jailbreakme.com method when its updated, then unlock it using iphonesimfree again?
    If true and it doesnt affect the baseband so i wont have an expensive ipod touch after this, id like to just be re-assured and if wot im askin is correct, i'll upgrade and tell of my results on here
    many thanks.

    i'd really appreciate some help on this, im so confued by all of the guides, im not sure if virginizin my iphone makes sense when i used ipsf. I just need some help on this and see if i can just update it now using itunes regularly, then using jailbreakme.com
    Thanks.

    Upgrading is fine using IPSF so they say, e-mail them if you need help.

    I've managed to get it all working 100%, this is how i did it, feel free to have this on a guide as i want other ppl who was in the same boat as me to have help, as there doesnt really seem to be for us IPSF users.

    I had an unlocked 1.02 iphone, and all i did was go into itunes and use the upgrade option. after it was done, i used the method on www.hacktheiphone.com
    now the first time i tried this earlier, i did it rite to the end, but it still was on the 'activate iphone' screen.
    it turns out it was because that i had to restore it as well as upgrade it, so i went into independance, clicked 'enter DFU mode' so itunes made sure it would restore and install the firmware again.
    I did this, followed the method again, and it all worked.
    I didnt have to do anythin wiv IPSF as i had my own sim in the entire time too, and straight away when i was on the mainscreen my carrier was shown and i had a text sent to me straight after too, and everythin had worked.
    Hope this helps,
    Gd luck.
