i want to unlock a friend's iphone this weekend, and i'm curious if there is any way to confirm it does NOT have 1.1.1 firmware already installed. i highly doubt it does (it was purchased earlier this week), but i want to confirm before i go trying to activate/unlock.

Before you unlock it you must activate it. Once it is activated you can check the firmware version under Settings > General > About > Version. It is highly unlikely that you would have anything other than 1.0.2 at this point in time. Even if you do have 1.1.1, you won't be doing any unlocking just now anyway.

actually, i DO plan on unlocking it now...i've got the 1.0.2 firmware on my computer, and option-restore will allow you to choose what firmware you would like installed prior to running iNdependence.

Option-restore does work on 7.4.1, but will not work on 7.4.3. I'm unsure about 7.4.2 as I have not updated to it yet. Looks like I may stick with the older version for some time given the current updates all enable features that have limited value for me or will disable my phone.

You can check what firmware is preinstalled by going to the emergency call, entering *3001#12345#* then pressing "Call". Under Versions you will find what revision firmware is on the phone out of the box.

03.12.06_G Is firmware 1.0.0
03.14.08_G Is firmware 1.0.1 and 1.02
04.02.04_G Is firmware 1.1.1 possibly 04.01.13_G means 1.1.1
