Unlock your iPhone for free!

amnesia
By amnesia

Just another tutorial because it pisses me off how people are charging over 500 riyals to unlock people's iPhones using MY youtube tutorial.

If you have an iPhone running 1.1.1 firmware follow these instructions.

You don't need a PC, just a WIFI connection. It looks long but it's not, I'm being specific for people.

Slide to go to the emergency dial

Dial *#301#
Press call.
Delete the numbers on the screen.
Dial 0 then call.
Press answer
Press HOLD
Press end call.
No go to contacts.
Make a new contact name.
Save TWO urls

They are
prefs:
and
www.jailbreakme.com
Press done.

Click on prefs: link

Go to General>Display>set the screen to never for auto shut off
Press back, go to your wifi settings, select the wifi network you want.

Press the home button.
Slide for emergency dial pad.
Dial 0
Call
Press answer
Hold
End call
Go to contacts
Go to the contact you made
press on the second link. www.jailbreakme.com

Go to the bottom of the page and click on install appsnapp

Wait for 3 minutes.

When it's done you'll be able to go to the iPhones main screen now.

Click on the installer icon.

Click on sources
Click edit
Add
type i.unlock.no
Done
Go to install
Go to unlock tools
Go to Anysim
Install it.
Go back to the main screen
tap the anysim icon
Wait for 10 minutes.

Go back to installer.app
click uninstall
click anysim
click uninstall

go back to main screen.

FINISHED.

anyway, i have a met a man today who also loves tweaking psp and gadgets. i think he is the only guy in doha who got turbosim.

he is selling it for 500QR all shipping + simcard.(fixed price)

its hard to get turbosim because always out of stocks..

check this out.

www.bladox.com

because we have tried this turbosim in week 47 iphone and it works flawlessly.

anyway, he said you can only order from me..(sigh..)

(note: i'm not the one who calculate the price, so i have no profit here, im just helping you if you want to use your iphone..because this is just the only way i can see so that your iphone will work..)

anyway, if you can wait, just wait for a release hopefully this january or maybe a month or two..or i don't know if it will be..

i will keep u updated guys!

thanks and God speed!

Agreed Amnesia !!!

I am just wondering why DNS is being mentioned. I have nowhere mentioned that anything has to be done with DNS setting. All I have said is The DNS entries point to same IP address.

By amnesia• 13 years 9 months ago.

@qatman, the server is NOT stable, this is straight from the webmaster himself.

@markus, I've followed this for MANY many iPhones. Just repeat the procedure as many times as possible until it works.

For me, it could take up to 3 tries. Just have a nice strong wireless connection and go to www.jailbreakme.com no need to mess around with DNS settings.

okay i will go to sleep. this is waste of time talking to you... zzzz

By qatman• 13 years 9 months ago.
qatman

Like I said earlier you are not understanding things so let me explain for you. My post has two paragraphs

First Para

"www is included in the url I mentioned in the earlier posts. In any case both www.jailbreakme.com and just jailbreakme.com will work as there is a DNS entry for both which point to the same IP address 208.75.87.234"

What I am trying to say here is that in the process which Amnesia has mentioned you can either use the url www.jaibreakme.com or just jailbreakme.com without the www. since both the URL's ultimately point to the same IP address ( you can verify this using a simple nslookup)

In the second paragraph I have mentioned that the process which amnesia has mentioned is documented in the http://iphone.unlock.no

You are connecting the First para and second para in a wrong way and jumping to conclusion.

Belive me I know what I am saying and I will not change what I have written

Hope you understand this

By markusjorell• 13 years 9 months ago.
markusjorell

this is what you said and i copy it so that you will not change it:

www is included in the url I mentioned in the earlier posts. In any case both www.jailbreakme.com and just jailbreakme.com will work as there is a DNS entry for both which point to the same IP address 208.75.87.234

The process is well documented on many internet sites. One of them is http://iphone.unlock.no/

so? what can you say? you already explained it. commom on men you making it on circles.. so where in i.unlock is that expalnation? and one thing, IP adress for the jailbreakme.com cannot be changed s if it is automatically distribute. im not IT but i set up my whole office so far as im concern i know what im saying.

By qatman• 13 years 9 months ago.
qatman

Looks like you have not understood what I have said. I have never mentioned you need to setup your DNS. All I have mentioned is the DNS entries for www.jaibreakme.com and jailbreakme.com point to the same IP.

I am not trying to prove anything here but adding to what is mentioned.

Please get your understanding right buddy and lets not start another useless discussion.

This is what its clearly stated on i.unlock you mentioned:

Nothing happens after i visit jailbreakme.com:

If you visit jailbreakme.com, install AppSnapp, get thrown back to the activtion screen and you have waited more then 3-5 minutes but phone does not restart - try restarting your phone manually. If phone starts normally everything is fine. If you still only get to the activation screen it did not work. Usually this is because there is a problem on the server, or maybe your internet connection. Wait some time (a few minutes if you are impatient, or a few hour if you want to be sure) and try again.

And I therefore conclude that it does not state about the DNS your trying to say. and for what I know, DNS setting is automatically given by mostly all routers now. maybe you use old setting routers. I think you are just blupping because you have no more explanation to share with your wrong post. i believe to master amnesia and dandy10. so what else alibi can you say man?

I was able to get the button with and without www and also using the raw IP address.

The server is stable it is only how you connect to it is the problem. For best results if you are connecting to the site using a ADSL Router ensure that you have the IP assigned to your phone is in the DMZ client for the Router. When I used this the success rate was more thaN 80%, Also ensure you clear up cookies and cache from your browser for each attempt.

yep happy new year.

@qatman, I don't know if that is a recent change (see modmyifone and hackint0sh for threads mentioning that without www it results in no button)

So far for me, it's been fine, however the biggest gripe is that their server is unstable and you have to do it more than a couple of times.

@weed, nobody charged me... As I mentioned, I'm the guy who 'made' the tutorials.

I've seen stores that do it which just pisses me off.

I'll include the tutorial with how to add arabic for free soon too.

(Stores charge 1000QR for that when it's FREE!)

@qatman, you wont see the url if you don't put www

@makhan, Dandy is spot on ^_^

if you dont want to open the phone, you have to choice:

1. buy a TURBOSIM

2. wait for a release for software unlock

By anonymous• 13 years 9 months ago.

can you unlock 1.1.2 ?? (bought directly from the USA)

I dont want to open the iPhone... gimme another solution.

dandy0510

just follow it step by step, amnesia's guide is very clear...all you need to do is be very patient.

(or else you will brick...)

(don't skip a thing even a single one.) ok?

** and about the QR500 charge, this is UNREASONABLE for version 1.1.1 and below - unlocking. (some shops charge like this..)

** But if its for version 1.1.2 for now, maybe its okay because it includes two choices with different method:

1. HARDWARE UNLOCK (includes opening iphone and this one is very delicate so really you need to pay for the time consumed and hardwork..) - actually, i have a friend who can unlock your 1.1.2 by hardware method, and this is very REASONABLE because the cost is for the "chip" imported and some technical stuff, and i assure that this works perfectly.)

2. TURBOSIM..well you know this already so i don't want to elaborate it. :)

Sotware unlock is genrally for the Phone and should work with any sim for any country.

By Architect.J• 13 years 9 months ago.
Architect.J

will an unlocked phone work with any sim in any country?, or is it specific for the country/network it was unlocked?

prefs:// is the first and www.jailbreakme.com is the second.

The only problem with this solution is you have to be lucky to see the intall appsnapp button when you go to the www.jailbreakme.com

Most of the times you will not find it, There are several reasons for it but If you persist then you will get it.
