How-To officially and legally unlock your iPhone with O2

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

If you own a Pay-As-You-Go or O2 contract iPhone and you want to unlock it to be able to use different SIMs from UK or from foreign countries when you’re off for work or holidays you need to¬†fill in O2’s standard¬†unlocking form.
You’ll receive a text confirmation of your request. Unlocking will take up to 14 days.

When you have a non-O2 SIM in the iPhone, plug it into iTunes and iTunes will confirm the iPhone has been unlocked.

Additionally visit the Unlock my iPhone page from O2 official website.

SetFile -a B <bundle file name>

You can use this technique if you want to restore the bundle attribute after a bundle-file (a directory container with bundle attribute) is transported through a bundle-incompatible file system like Linux and Windows file systems generally are.
