Let me try to make some sense out of today. There's a ton of confusion out there (so what else is new). This is what is possible and what is not. GeoHot has created a software based unlock for 1.1.2 iPhones with the 4.6 bootloader. You can read his comments here. Thank you again GeoHot! Please consider sending him a donation through his site if you use this unlock.

He certainly deserves support for his efforts. GeoHot's unlock today is for 4.6 bootloaders only. It will unlock 1.1.2 iPhones out of the box (by downgrading to 1.1.1, et cetera), you could then use the Installer based 1.1.3 firmware update to get to 1.1.3 firmware, but you will still be on 04.02.13_G baseband. Follow? This unlock is not for 1.1.3 out of the box iPhones. It will however downgrade the baseband on the 1.1.3 from 04.03.13_G to 04.02.13_G and you can unlock that. You will always have a mismatch here: you can run 1.1.3 firmware, but you must use 1.1.2 baseband to get a phone signal. Until 1.1.4 comes out there is no secpack to crack to unlock 1.1.3 yet. So go raid your local Apple or AT&T store before Apple updates all the phones in the stores right now. They are literally hemorrhaging unlockable phones right now.

Zibri's unauthorized release of the next version of anySIM is for unlocking the 1.1.3 baseband, but only for 3.9 bootloaders. I have since posted my tutorial for taking a jailbroken 1.1.2 iPhone with the 4.6 bootloader and unlocking it. Both OS X and Windows users can use the same guide since it is all Installer based. I have a link for how to jailbreak 1.1.2 if you don't know how, it's a different tutorial (this currently exists only for OS X and Brief Windows users, but I'll work on a detailed Windows version or maybe make a hybrid guide). I'm also going to expand this unlocking guide by showing you how to continue up to 1.1.3 firmware so you can have your wiggly icons.

Also consider donating to this site aswell. I try to keep you guys updated to the minute. I get a guide up as soon as a hack or a jailbreak is released. If you do donate THANK YOU it's because of you sites like this exist and keep going. Your generosity is appreciated.
