Upgrade 1.0.2 unlocked iPhone to 1.1.3


I recently upgraded my unlocked 1.0.2 version iPhone to 1.1.3 using Zibri’s Ziphone .

I tried looking for a guide for the same on the Internet. However all I got were comments from experts about the procedure and certain comments from people who had done this.

Here is what I did to upgrade. Note that these steps are meant for Windows users having 1.0.2 iPhone unlocked using the iUnlock method (prior to anySim ):

DISCLAIMER: The following steps worked fine for my iPhone. Try them at your own risk. I cannot guarantee that the process will always be successful.

  1. Back up your contacts and phone’s content in iTunes.
  2. Set auto lock to "Never" in Settings -> General -> Auto Lock
  3. Add "http://i.unlock.no" to Installer sources and refresh
  4. Go to Unlocking Tools in Installer and install Virginizer. This step will take about 15 minutes. Your phone will not recognize your Sim after this step.
  5. Download 1.1.3 firmware file from the link on http://iphone.unlock.no/#restore-firmware-files
  6. Connect your iPhone to the computer & start iTunes.  Once the phone is detected by iTunes, hold "Shift" key and click on the Restore button on the Summary page in iTunes. Select the file you just downloaded. iTunes will start restoring (read upgrading ) your iPhone to 1.1.3 firmware. This process will again take around 15 minutes to complete. Close iTunes after this step.
  7. Download Ziphone from http://www.downloadziphone.org/
  8. Install .Net Framework 2.0
  9. Start Ziphone & click on "Do it All" button. It will detect the phone and start the activate, jailbreak & unlock process. This will take approx. 5 minutes to complete. Close Ziphone after this step. The phone is now upgraded to 1.1.3 and is unlocked. It will have Installer installed. You can test by making a call.
  10. Once you are done, start iTunes. Set up the phone using the backup you took in step 1.

I had a small problem with wifi after this process. I used ad-hoc wifi at my home to connect to the internet from the iPhone. However, after this process, the iPhone wasn’t able to keep the ad-hoc connection. I reached out to the folks at the official Ziphone channel (#ziphone) on irc.ziphone.org and they helped me out. The solution is to connect the iPhone to a proper router based wifi hotspot. Once it is connected to the hotspot, it will be able to connect to ad-hoc networks as well. I was anyways looking for an excuse to get a wifi router. So I utilized this opportunity. The iPhone works perfectly fine with the router wifi.

In case you have any queries regarding the unlock process or Ziphone, I guess its best to reach out to the experts on the IRC channel. I do not have much expertise in this. I am posting the above steps to help out people looking for a guide.

Thanks to Zibri, Geohot & iphone.unlock team for coming with this.

Update: Thanks to Mr. Farooqi for the discussion. You can use the above process to upgrade to 1.1.4 as well. Just download the 1.1.4 firmware file in step 5 above. Rest of the steps remain the same. Enjoy!

    Hi,

    I want to buy iphone for using it in india. Can you pls help me with these queries:

    1. Do all features of an unlocked iphone work in india?
    2. How much does it take to unlock an iphone safely in mumbai?is it good to get this done from a shop or can i do it all by myself? whats ziphone & jailbreak exactly?
    3. If possible , should I buy an unlocked iphone from usa?
    4. For how much do shops sell an unlocked iphone in india..mumbai?
    Thanks

    RK,

    Here are my responses:

    1. Do all features of an unlocked iPhone work in India?
    [SG]: Yes. Except visual voicemail which is a network feature provided only by AT&T. Normal voicemail works well.

    2. How much does it take to unlock an iphone safely in mumbai?
    [SG]: Zero

    is it good to get this done from a shop or can i do it all by myself?
    [SG]: You can do it yourself. No need to go to a shop.

    whats ziphone & jailbreak exactly?
    [SG]: Ziphone is a user friendly software to activate, jailbreak & unlock a locked iPhone. iPhone’s file system is locked by default. You cannot add any new software on it. Jailbreak is the process to “free” the file system so that you can install 3rd party software. Jailbreaking is necessary to unlock the iPhone.

    3. If possible , should I buy an unlocked iphone from usa?
    [SG]: I would not recommend that now since the unlock process is pretty simple. Why spend more money?

    4. For how much do shops sell an unlocked iphone in india..mumbai?
    [SG]: The cheapest I have found is 25k. This is around 7k more than the price of a brand new iPhone in the US.

    hi how do i back up and iphones content through itunes.

    thanks,

  12. #12 by Saurabh on March 8, 2008 - 9:27 pm

    I’ve been using a 1.0.2(1C28) unlocked using ‘Anysim’. I dont think it is jailbreaked, as I don’t have a 3rd party installer. Although, I’m pretty happy with the phone, greed eventually get’s everyone of us. I want to upgrade it, but I’ve been reading loads of websites, which claim that it’s not safe to do so. Now if that isn’t scary enough, I’ve also read somewhere that if my phone was unlocked using anysim.. it’s probably “Bricked!!” Now what exactly does that mean? Could you kindly guide me, on how to upgrade it without worrying too much about what can go wrong. Thanks, appreciate it.

  13. #13 by Setu Garg on March 8, 2008 - 10:41 pm

    Peter,

    iTunes should automatically take a backup of your phone in step 6 above. However, to be on a safer side, disable automatic sync (or make some other change to sync settings) and sync. iTunes should take a backup and then sync your phone.

    Note that iTunes does not take a backup of your media. However, when you restore after upgrade, it will sync it again with the playlist and put the media back on the phone if its still available on your computer.

  14. #14 by Setu Garg on March 8, 2008 - 10:59 pm

    Saurabh,

    Its not possible that your phone isn’t jailbroken and is unlocked. Jailbreak is a mandatory step for unlocking.

    If you used anySim to unlock 1.0.2, ideally your baseband was not damaged and it is safe to upgrade without re-virginizing. However, to be on a safer side, you can virginize and then upgrade to the new version. Re-virginizing will only fix the problem (if any).

    I can test your scenario but you will have to wait for some time. I will post the results here.

  15. #15 by Setu Garg on March 9, 2008 - 12:29 am

    Saurabh,

    Your scenario has been tested and the iPhone was successfully upgraded to 1.1.4 and unlocked.

    You can try the same if you want.

  16. #16 by Saurabh on March 9, 2008 - 2:41 am

    Thanks Setu, I noticed that you mentionedin the process, I need to add “http://i.unlock.no” to Installer sources and refresh, but I don’t have theinstaller application on my phone. Is this normal?

    hi how do i back up and iphones content through itunes.

    thanks,

  18. #18 by Setu Garg on March 9, 2008 - 6:40 am

    Saurabh,

    Download iBrickr (google it). It is a small utility to put 3rd party contents on your iPhone. Start iBrickr and connect your phone. It should detect your phone and show you 4 options.

    Click on “applications” and follow the on screen instructions. You have to install “Installer” from the application list.

    Once this is done, restart the phone and follow the steps above. Hope this helps.

  31. #31 by Setu Garg on March 10, 2008 - 4:20 pm

    @Kalyan,

    1. Use the Installer application to install 3rd party apps. Although these apps are first tested and then made available to everyone, no one guarantees that they will not harm your iPhone. Use them at your own risk. I have used many apps from installer on my iPhone and they seem to be working fine.

    2. Use iBrickr

    3. Use Installer

    Thanx

  38. #38 by Setu Garg on March 11, 2008 - 11:13 am

    @sunny,

    If you are using ad-hoc wifi, the upgraded iPhone 1.1.3 may have problems in retaining the connection. To solve this, find a wifi router hotspot and connect to that. Subsequent connections to ad-hoc or regular hotspots will be retained.

    I will suggest using a wifi router as ad-hoc wifi creates overhead on the host PC.

    hey I have few queries
    I have a wireless router and I’m planning to follow the above suggestions and upgrade my iphone to 1.1.3.
    scared of basically 2 things
    1. I don’t know which application was used for unlocking the phone. Was it iunlock or anysim. Basically now I’m using the phone in India and with aircel.im not sure if both the softwares were used or not. Should I go ahead with the above process or not.
    2. Secondly I’m using a wireless router at home. I don’t know about this ad hoc thing. I jus usually connect to the net. There is a wpa key which I put wen I started the first time I used it on the iPhone. If I upgrade i will still be able to use this wifi no?

    Thanx, if any more queries il let u know

  43. #43 by Setu Garg on March 11, 2008 - 10:33 pm

    @vipul,

    1/ if you do not remember the unlock process, you may try the above process as the virginizer will only repair the baseband.

    2/ yes, as I mentioned above, you should be able to use this wifi setup.

    There are several things that you can try:

    1/ Try using a different USB port
    2/ Update iTunes
    3/ Type “services.msc” in Run dialog box and restart the Apple Mobile Device service

    Apple has a dedicated page for this error which lists the above and some more solutions. Here is the link: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=305868

    Hi,
    I have a Unlocked IPhone ver 1.1.12
    However I have problems with Wifi. i travel a lot and as most Airports have free WiFi I cannot access it even though the WiFi signal icon is visible on the phone. The phone is used with a Turbosim, does this have anything to do with the Wifi?Also can I use the phone without the turbosim what are the pros and cons as regards to turbosim?
    Thanks
    susheel

  56. #56 by Setu Garg on March 17, 2008 - 12:05 pm

    @Sushil,

    I do not think Turbosim has anything to do with the wifi. The reason you are not able to access wifi at airports might be that these places use high encryption which is not currently supported by the iPhone. These types of encryption are more secure and are needed to prevent eavesdropping at such critical public places.

    The iPhone supports wifi networks with up to WPA2 encryption only.

    I do not think Turbosim has anything to do with the wifi. The reason you are not able to access wifi at airports might be that these places use high encryption which is not currently supported by the iPhone. These types of encryption are more secure and are needed to prevent eavesdropping at such critical public places.

    The iPhone supports wifi networks with up to WPA2 encryption only.

    Hello Setu
    I upgraded from 1.0.2 to 1.1.4 ten days ago and did everything from above steps. Everything works fine, until yesterday. I’m on home router, my iphone can find the network, but there no internet.
    safari, mail, maps, you tube, itunes suddenly don’t work:-(

    I tried many things: reset network settings, restart the iphone, clear wep encryption code, try restoring to 1.1.4 again, but no solution

    still I can find the wifi network, but no interent

    please help, what can I do?

    Hello Setu,
    thanks for the info, however I cannot access Youtube ,Safari Maps on the phone. Also if I have to upgrade my IPhone from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 can I use Zipphone and virginize it?

    Thanks

    Hi, i have iphone 1.0.2, i have a problem with receiving sms….i am able to send but unable to receie
    I am confused, hough my iphone has 1.0.2 firmware, i has 04.04.05_G modem firmware which is the latest offered to 1.1.4
    Offcourse bootloader is 3.9 i guess…Can i upgrade it to fix my sms roblem?

  66. #66 by Setu Garg on March 24, 2008 - 12:02 pm

    @Raghav,

    I am not sure if upgrading to 1.1.3 or 1.1.4 will fix this issue. However, it might, as there have been upgrades to the SMS client after 1.0.2.

    Are you unable to receive all SMS or some messages?

    What unlocking method did you use to unlock your iPhone?

    Well.. i was plannign to buy an iphone… been doin some research on the unlocking and the afterwards scenarios… then i said to myself i should probably ask someone who has tried these stuff… so wat would you recommend setu?? Buying an already unlocked iphone or getting one and unlocking yourself?? are there any features other than the visual mail thingy that would not work if unlocked?? Any help will be really appreciated… thanks in advance!! :) this blog has been really helpful!!

  81. #81 by Setu Garg on April 14, 2008 - 6:53 pm

    @Liquid,

    Unlocking an iPhone using Ziphone is very simple. Its just a single click step.

    With Ziphone 3, the process is faster and better. It will also install some required apps on your iPhone as part of the unlocking process.

    You should be able to do it yourself.

    hi ppl,

    I upgraded sucessfully from version 1.1.3 to 1.1.4.
    I wanted to share the info here. So here it goes.

    Always use the shift restore to load the custom firmware downloaded from unlock.no website (find the link in the blog post)

    Now use the latest version of ziphone (3.0).

    If ur unlock process stops at a "rebooting in recovery mode", then don’t panic. It did in mine. Just restore the firmware once again, this time follow the steps from ziphone’s troubleshooting.txt to manually put the phone in recovery mode. Then run ziphone and use "Do it all".

    It would get unlocked.

    @setu – please put up the steps on manually enterting recovery mode in the post. (I can’t coz I m typing all this from my phone)

    @semil,

    If you want to upgrade to 1.1.4 and you unlocked using anySim, just follow steps 5 – 10 above, downloading 1.1.4 firmware image in step 5.

    If you want a router just for your iPhone for internet usage, any basic router from the reputed manufacturers like Netgear, linksys or D link will do.

  108. #108 by semil on May 30, 2008 - 12:40 pm

    @semil,

    As I understand, there is no need for you to repair the installer. The upgrade process does not need installer unless you need to follow steps 1 to 4 which you do not.

    Just follow steps 5 – 10 and you should be all set.

  131. #131 by Setu Garg on August 25, 2008 - 3:27 pm

    @semilr –

    Yes, the latest version is 2.0.2. However, it has not yet been unlocked. The iphone-dev team will be coming up with an unlock for it soon. You can either wait for that or upgrade to 2.0.1 instead. The detailed steps are here – http://woikr.com/apple/how-to-upgrade-and-unloc

  132. #132 by semilr on August 25, 2008 - 3:50 pm

    i think so u can umlock 2.0.2 usick quickpwnGUI120 CHECK IT OUT I HAVE DOWNLOADED IT I ASKS YOU WHETEHR U HAVE 2.0.1 2.0.2 IT CAN UNLOCK

  133. #133 by Setu Garg on August 25, 2008 - 3:59 pm

    QuickPwn just jailbreaks 2.0.1 and 2.0.2 currently. It does not unlock the phone.

    The iphone-dev team is working to integrate it with WinPwn 2.5. It should be out soon after which you will be able to unlock 2.0.2 as well.

    whats the difference between jailbreak and unlock

  135. #135 by Setu Garg on August 29, 2008 - 8:10 pm

    Jailbreak frees up your filesystem so that you can install 3rd party apps. It does not enable your phone to be used with any network other than the one the phone is locked to.

    Whereas, with an unlock you can use your phone with any network.

    Semil –

    Yes, 2.0.2 is a bit slower when it comes to response time. Apple has acknowledged this issue with Contacts.app and is working on it. This should hopefully get resolved with the 2.1 update. In the meantime, in case you have OpenSSH installed, I would suggest you to turn it off using BossPrefs.

    Regarding Installer, I recommend you to use Cydia instead.

    Hi Setu,
    I would like to thank you for creating such a wonderful iphone unlock guide.
    I upgraded to 1.1.4 from 1.0.2.
    Although I used it about 6-7 months back, but after that I have been closely following your blog for latest updates & other info.

    Anyways, I was wondering, if you've upgraded to the latest version which Apple offers?

    Regs,

    I would like to upgrade my jailbroken iphone 1.0.2 to 1.1.4, but have the following problems:

    1. Not sure if the phone was unlocked using iunlocker or anysim?

    2. Installer does not work, actually I managed to get it to work, but it seems impossible to upgrade it past version 1.7 (beta), which does not allow me to put in source updates. When I click on unistall, it says I have installer v3.11 installed, but it has no button to uninstall.

    3. Ibrickr does not work for me, it actually never has. Everytime I try to install something, it just does a soft-boot and nothing is ever installed, or even shows up anywhere.

    Please help me!
    Thanks,
    Tony

    my iphone 1.0.2 software is unlocked with mySIM will these steps work for it too??

  144. #144 by Setu Garg on December 4, 2008 - 6:45 pm

    Yes. It should work.

    If you used anySim to unlock 1.0.2, ideally your baseband was not damaged and it is safe to upgrade without re-virginizing. However, to be on a safer side, you can virginize and then upgrade to the new version. Re-virginizing will only fix the problem (if any).

    Note that iTunes does not take a backup of your media. However, when you restore after upgrade, it will sync it again with the playlist and put the media back on the phone if its still available on your computer.
