Unlocking 4s version 5.1.1 on o2

Hi all, I have recently jailbroken my 4s and I'm wondering if I can unlock it as I'm travelling next week. I was in the UK last month and was charged ~€30 for 4 days which I thought was ridiculous and I don't want to get stung again! Can anyone help?

There is no unlock available for the 4S unless you get a Gevey sim for it. Have you tried getting O2 to unlock it?

Gah.. this is frustrating!

- Upgraded iPhone 3GS on 6.15.00 baseband to 5.1 (and preserved it.. all fine!)
- Then I'd to carry out a tethered JB in order to hacktivate it (since Absinthe won't do it when not activated)
- Then installed Ultrasn0w Fixer 5.1.1 and Ultrasnow to fix 'no service'
- Then installed Rocky Racoon Untether 5.1.1 to make JB untethered

All appeared to work perfectly.. but when I restart the phone, it just goes to a solid black screen and won't respond to being powered on.

It's almost like it's constantly in DFU mode as the only way to get it back is to 'Boot tethered' in DFU mode.

The newest RedSnow (0.9.11b4) has 'Fix Recovery Loop' disabled while the slightly older one (0.9.10b6) has it enabled but it doesn't do much!

Christ... pain in the arse!

EDIT: Fixed.. accidentally chosen old bootrom instead of new bootrom.Now up-and-running!

Yeah I sent off to O2 earlier looking for an unlock but I don't think I've spent the €120 or so credit on the iPhone yet. Hopefully I'll be able to sort something by next week.
Cheers!

Damn. seem to have all lost pretty much all my apps off my ipad when jailbreaking. Not sure what I did wrong. Followed the steps below to the letter. After the successful JB did a restore and am left with a standard set of apps I started with 6 months ago.

There is obviously more to step 1 than is specified here as the backup went fine.

EDIT... seem to have found a lot of them easily enough in appstore on the ipad under purchased. only missing a few like filmon which was removed. hopefully i can find it elsewhere

1. Make a backup of your device iTunes by right clicking on your device name under the 'Devices' menu and click 'Back Up'.
2. Once your backup is complete return to your device and go to Settings - General - Reset - Erase All Content and Settings. This will make the jailbreak process much faster.
3. Open Absinthe and be sure your are still connected via USB cable to your computer.
4. Click 'Jailbreak' and wait... just be patient and do not disconnect your device!
5. Once jailbroken return to iTunes and restore your backup from earlier. To do so, right click on your device name under the 'Devices' menu in the left panel of iTunes and click 'Restore From Backup...' then select the latest backup you created before. (restoring this backup will return all the content previously on your device, i.e. apps, photos, etc.)
6. Thanks for using Absinthe, enjoy your jailbroken iDevice!

No. If it's an official unlock then upgrade away - you'll never lose it.

Is it possible to add a toggle for PdaNet to SBsettings? Or any other tethering apps?

I own an ipad 1 and an iphone 3gs. Neither are jailbroken, nor have I tried to jailbreak them. Decided I would attempt to jailbreak my ipad today. BUT im now confused and worried ill do it wrong, after trolling true videos and web posts and tutorials.ARGGH..
I understand the difference between tethered and untethered, and obviously would prefer to do the untethered.
My ipad is on iOS 5.1. Do I need to update to 5.1.1 or downgrade/revert(?) to 5.0.1?
Im seeing the word blobs for tethered 5.1.1 jailbreak and looks complicated.

You need to upgrade to 5.1.1 and then run Absinthe 2.0.2 when updated with the iPad connected to your PC. Then click 'Jailbreak', wait for it to complete and then you're done!

Don't worry about this.. this is only important if you wish to roll back to a previous firmware that isn't being signed ("authorised") by Apple anymore.

You will need to update to 5.1.1. Use Absinthe 2.0 to jailbreak it untethered. Blobs are only needed for downgrading firmware.

EDIT: Basq got there before me.

once updated to 5.1.1, does the ipad need to be off or on while jailbreaking. Just thinking about DFU? something I read during the course of the day.

Nope, Absinthe doesn't require the device to be in DFU mode.

Just leave it the iPad on as normal connected to the PC / Mac.
