Attention

You should read my Warning to all iPhone owners page before proceeding.



Step 1.

Download iLiberty+ here. Launch iLiberty+.

iPhone



Click Tools, then Options.

iPhone



Make sure Check repo at startup is checked. Click the OK button and then close iLiberty+ and relaunch it.

iPhone



Now when it starts you'll see it scanning available downloads on the official iLiberty repository.

iPhone



The program opens in the Standard tab. Now select the options you'd like. I mistakenly checked the downgrading a 4.6 bootloader to a 3.9 fake blank bootloader (as you'll see in a picture later) but it didn't matter. There is error checking in this program.

iPhone




Now click the Advanced tab. You'll see that based on your selections in the standard tab, that there are three Payloads in the Selected Payloads tab.

iPhone



Click the lower tab that says Payloads Available On Repo. You can select additional things to install at the same time. You could also just come back later after unlocking your phone and add them at that time.

iPhone



After you have selected everything you want, click Download to get all the files. You'll see a progress bar for each file.

iPhone



Now click on the Local Payloads tab. You must now check each check box next to the files you want to install. Unfortunately this isn't done for you automatically. As you check the boxes you'll see the counter increases in the Selected tab at the bottom.

iPhone





If you go to the Selected Payloads tab, you'll see everything that is ready to be installed. Click the Go for it! button when you are ready.

iPhone



If you get this error, click OK and launch iTunes. You can keep it open during this process. Click Go for it! again.

iPhone



When you see this screen, unplug the iPhone and then plug it back in to the computer. Click the OK button.

iPhone



This screen will appear and the phone will reboot.

iPhone



Text will scroll on the iPhone's screen. Note the invalid calibration data in device tree message (hopefully you don't see this).

You'll then see a screen with a blue bar at the top and you'll receive verbose output while the program executes the various installations you selected. When finished, the iPhone will reboot and it will be ready for use.
