    How To: Unlock your iPhone using AppSnapp (1.1.1)

    Filed under: iPhone ::

    This is by far the the simplest method to unlock your 1.1.1 iPhone and you won’t even have to touch a computer…

    Everything in this guide involves only the iPhone itself. You will need access to a wireless access point to be able to use this method. Use the following steps to jailbreak and activate your iPhone.

    1. At the AT&T activation screen you will see a slider with the message “Slide for Emergency”. Slide this and you will be given access to a keypad.
    2. Dial in *#307# and press the call button (if you get an incoming call ignore it for now and continue with the next step).
    3. Erase what you had dialed in and simply dial 0 then press call.
    4. Answer the first call and place it on hold.
    5. Decline the second call.
    6. If you followed the previous steps correctly you should now see different sections such as “Favorites”, “Recents” and “Contacts” running across the bottom of the screen.
    7. Tap on the “Contacts” button to switch to the contacts list.
    8. Add a contact and name it whatever you want.
    9. Add the following URL to the contact: prefs://1F
    10. Add another URL to the contact:
    11. Save the contact.
    12. Access the contact by clicking on it and then tap on the first URL (prefs://1F).
    13. You should now be in the iPhone settings menu.
    14. Configure your Wi-Fi settings in the Wi-Fi menu under settings so that your iPhone is connected to your wireless router and has an IP address assigned to it.
    15. Press the home button to return to the main screen.
    16. Repeat steps 1-6 again.
    17. Access the contact that you created earlier by tapping on it.
    18. Tap on the second URL and it should take you to the page (if you configured your wireless settings correctly).
    19. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the “Install AppSnapp” link.
    20. After about 30 seconds you should be taken to the “Slide to Unlock” screen.
    21. Slide the slider to unlock the phone and you’re ready to go.

    Congratulations, you now have a jailbroken and activated iPhone. The AppSnapp installer also patches YouTube and Sprinboard as well as installing the AppTap Installer (

    You can then use the following steps to SIM unlock your iPhone.

    1. Open the AppTapp installer on your iPhone.
    2. Click on the “Sources” button on the bottom.
    3. Click on the “Edit” button.

    8. Find and install anySIM 1.1.
    9. Press the home button to return to the home screen.
    10. You should now see anySIM listed on the home screen of the iPhone. If you don’t see it then lock and unlock the iPhone. If you still don’t see it then restart the iPhone.
    11. Before running anySIM you will need to navigate to Settings -> General -> Auto-Lock and make sure that the Auto-Lock is set to “Never”.
    12. Once you are able to see the icon for anySIM on the home screen, tap on it to start it.
    13. Slide the slider to begin the unlocking.
    14. You should receive a message indicating that the unlocking was successful.
