Earlier today, iPhoneSIMFree announced that, thanks to the iPhone Dev Team's jailbreak of iPhone software/firmware 1.1.1 (see this article for instructions, download and some additional tips for making the jailbreak work) it had created a solution that allows those who used its commerical solution for unlocking the iPhone to upgrade to version 1.1.1 while maintaining unlocked status, along with 1.1.1 unlock solution. The company also announced a 1.1.1 unlock, which the company claims is capable of "completely restoring/repairing software unlocked 'bricked' iPhone."
Now netkas, an administrator on the Hackintosh forums, is stating that a free unlock solution for 1.1.1 that may also work to unbrick phones unlocked under firwmare/software 1.0.2 then updated to 1.1.1 is on the way. He writes:
"We got secpack, so free unlock of 1.1.1 coming soon. Dunno right now about bricked iphones, but i guess we can reflash them now and back to working state. So, wait a bit and don't use ipsf (iPhoneSIMFree)"
More details as they arrive...
