Hi
I think the best bet would be:

Step 1-Just downgrade your firmware using
this....(Use it only to downgrade and then use step 2)

Step 2-Use this to jailbreak and unlock your iphone.

Have fun..

I used Hack the iPhone - An international site featuring Mac and Windows instructions for modding. and got sorted in 10 mins!

Now the only problems i face is transferring my phonebook from my Blackberry Pearl to the iPhone...any tips? Also can the iPhone users on Vodafone network tell me if their edge is working coz i cant seem to open any website via safari with my basic gprs...was asked to upgade to advanced gprs for iPhone.

That site does have great instructions!

And about contacts, I just told iTunes to pick it from outlook.

Ok guys, the fun starts all over again.

1.1.2 is out, and naturally, do not upgrade. iTunes is still not detecting that it is out, but probably will, in a day or two.

Details here Apple posts firmware v1.1.2 -- goodbye jailbreak! - Engadget

Default hi

Guys just got the 8GB yesterday, with firmware 1.0.2 unlocked in the shop itself...But there is some problem with the accelerometer..When i start the ipod, it launches directly in the coverflow mode...And if i start it while holding the iphone upside-down, it launches in the normal selection screen..The same problem is with the pictures as well...I think the accelerometer is oriented in the upside-down direction..What should i do??Any suggestions??
