    Amazing such a great tutorial. Even complete noobs like myself should have no problem at all. Note - if App Tapp hangs up during the software transfer phase, just undock your iPhone and replace it and the software should kick back in.

    Great tutorial-Excellent work congrats to developer and author if not the same- Hope that its working for the fellow posters who are doing that now-has the long wait done something-

    My iphones arriving <monday-just one question: in part 4 what are we supposed to do with lockdownd-execute it? What is meant by "Replace lockdownd with the original file and install it before continuing." What original file? on the iphone? what directory? http://www.modmyi.com/forums/images/...s/confused.gif

    Thanks very much and good luck!

    Any luck?

    Like I said in the tutorial...

    Now, open up /usr/libexec, and drag the lockdownd file you downloaded in the beginning of this part of the tutorial into it.

    Aloha everyone,

    I followed all the instructions for unlocking my iPhone and it was successful!!

    Unfortunately the phone is essentially unusable because it runs so slowly. I noticed it after installing ssh and the new lockdownd tools first, but thought it might go away after unlock.

    I even removed unlock and then OpenSSH (I thought maybe a daemon was bogging me down) to no avail.

    I've already restored and done the whole thing again twice. After lockdownd the iPhone just crawls (like 30 - 60 seconds per touch).

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

    i'm confused about this part

    --In order for this to work you must change the file permissions on the Unlock.app. ssh into your phone:
    cd /Applications

    chmod -R 0777 Unlock.app

    how do i change the permission of the unlock.app ??
    is it through Cyberduck ?? how to do it ??


    btw what's the "bsd" in the warning ??

    --Warning-- If you have not installed the BSD tools, your iPone will not function. Replace lockdownd with the original file and install it before continuing.

    Please clarify... .
    and congrats on a super nice tutorial, what attracted me to it and made me give it a try was the level of detail with screenshots and downloadable files from within the tutorial.. again thanks. I'm just sorry I could not figure out the two points above.

    Those are the two exact steps that I'm confused with...

    Anyone know?

    I did not add those, someone edited the Wiki. Those steps are not necessary, as CyberDuck already sets those permissions. Refresh the guide, it has been updated to be how I originally intended it.

    I will be attempting to unlock my iPhone and use with T-mobile for a few weeks. After that, how do I activate with AT&T? Do I just connect with iTunes and the activate with ATT message will come up?

    Thanks everyone.

    Do you already have ATT?

    No, I don't. I plan to sign up with ATT in a couple of weeks. In the mean time I will use my existing tmobile.

    I've used the Unlock.app method to unlock my iPhone for use w/ T-mobile while I was waiting for my TurboSIM to show up. Both methods work(ed) fine. But now that I have my TurboSIM I don't have to worry about Apple software updates.

    In either method to get T-zones to work all I had to do was go to Settings>General>Edge delete the AT&T entries in the APN, Username, and Password fields then enter wap.voicestream.com in the APN field. T-zones works without any other hacks. You don't need any username or password. Leave those fields blank.

    Now this may not work for everyone ... but it's a good first place to start before having to hack anything else.

    T-Zones works for you? You can do all the Safari, Mail, Maps, etc with just the $5.99 plan?
