Has Anyone Unlocked The New iPhone That Comes With 1.1.2 Firmware?

I’ve just spent about 20 mins surfing/searching around the net looking for a 1.1.2 unlock for phones that come with the firmware (not phones that have been upgraded to the 1.1.2 firmware).

I can’t seem to find a good unlock solution. Does anyone know of one that I can reliably use?

    You need to downgrade to 1.1.1 first.http://youtube.com/watch?v=… <- That’s how I did it for my iPod Touch. The procedure should be similar, if not exactly the same.

    Sorry, but for the time it’s impossible 🙁 You have an iPhone with bootloader version 4.6, which patches the vulnerability used to unlock the iPhone. All you can do is jailbreak and activate it.

    there is currently no software unlock, as the changes to the firmware must now be digitally signed to the new bootloader and no-one has worked out the signiture yet. hackers are expecting to be able to revese engineer it when 1.1.3 comes out (no release date yet).however people are having success with Turbosim (about $100) and StealthSim http://www.iphonestealth.ca/ (about $90) both solutions cover part of the AT&T sim and trick the phone without editing the software. so far these solutions have been upgrade proof.

    The iPhone Dev Team has instructions on how to downgrade the firmware to 1.1.1, jailbreak it, and upgrade it back to 1.1.2. They say they can’t guarantee it will work 100% of the time, but you can take that to mean whatever you like. They don’t make any distinction between phones that come preinstalled with 1.1.2 and those that upgraded.Also, expiator’s link does mention that TurboSIM works on OOB 1.1.2 phones now, if you want to go the hardware route.iphone.fiveforty.net/wiki/i…

        And what kind of un-lock phone you actualy use?, just to see what phone you prefer instead of an iPhone…
