Unlocking the iphone (firmware 1.1.1)

Seems a whole lot of people have spent enormous time on jailbreaking and subsequently unlocking the iPhone. For those who want to know more about this, here are a few links to get you started (please note that these links are valid at the time of writing, and that I am not encouraging you to go and hack your iPhone) :

  • Hack the iPhone : step-by-step instructions on hacking the iphone without needing a computer (you do need a wireless network though)
  • : the website you need to visit to crack your iPhone automatically !
  • Unlocking the iPhone : after getting the iPhone to accept new programs, you need to install a program to unlock your sim card
  • Installing Applications on your iPhone : you can use the handy Installer tool that jailbreak installs for you. Oooooooodles of applications…
  • iPhone Club (dutch) : this forum has a large number of flemish and dutch users who share their knowledge

Makes it very easy to get a real functional phone !

Ebay – laptop sold !

The aftermath of my Ebay Trubles.

After 8 days, I could file a complaint, and after a further 8 days without hearing anything from the buyer, I could annul the deal and put it up for resale. This time I put it up only for 5 days, ending a Sunday afternoon at 5pm, and it actually got sold for 30 euros more than before. So there is a silver lining to this cloud after all…

Still, it rankled, not hearing anything from the buyer. A simple, “No I’m not interested”, or “I made a mistake” would have helped me a lot.

The current buyer is picking it up this week. We’ll see if things work out, but I have good hopes.

Update : everything went fine.
