I unlocked it using the modmyiphone instructions & it seems to work!!! Hurray!!
Big thanks to the all the Dev Wiki people for their excellent work. I have no idea what I did It seemed I was stuck when my AT+CLCK="PN",0,"00000000" line returned an error but I continued with the steps (at the 3rd time) and it works
Right now it is easier because they have built a self installer!
I haven't unlocked with either yet, but have done a TON of reading. It seems that there are more "user friendly" apps for mac. I'm activating/jailbreaking/unlocking on Monday and I only have a PC. Hopefully I won't have any major problems. Very scared about bricking it accidentally.
I used Mac first to do the Turbosim method and although instructions were well written for some reason I had issues with SSH. Then used iBrikr on Windows and it was easier. Did it on 1st attempt even tough the instructions were not as clear as the Mac version. For the new unlock, a Mac Gui app came out recently which seems easy to use. I'd say stick with Mac just so you can get some support from fellow ehMacer's if needed.
In the ModMyiPhone web site they mention that you need to install the BSD tools before continuing step 1 in "part 4" of the mac OX install process. My question is wha is are the BSD tools, is this "jailbreak" or something else that goes by another name. I can't seem to remember seing BSD tools anywhere, where do I find this software or does it go by a different name?
Help please, I want to attempt to unlock the phone portion of my iPhone today.
