    -----
    Requirement 1) Download/Install 'Store only version' of iTunes
    * In order to unbrick the iPhone in store (which is a requirement of
    the iPhone Sales Process), you must have iTunes version 7.6.3b4. Installed
    on your computer. This version has a special 'Activation Only Mode' that must
    be enabled and used in store.
    * The iTunes version that is currently available on the Apple website is
    version 7.6.2. This version does NOT have the activation only mode and as
    such please action the following steps to complete the installation of version 7.6.3b4:

    1) Download and install 7.6.3b4 from the following link. Do not attempt
    to use any other version of iTunes as V7.6.3b4 is a specific activation only module designed
    for in-store use.


    2) When you enter the link above you will be asked if you want to 'open' or 'save' the file.
    Select 'Open'. The file is 102mb and may take 5 to 15 minutes to download, depending on
    your connection speed.

    3) Once downloaded you will see a window containing two files. One file is for a Mac and
    the other is for Windows. Please double-click the Windows.exe file.

    4) A small 'warning' window will pop-up that advises you to extract all files –Please do so.

    5) An 'Extraction Wizard' will start. Click 'Next'.

    6) You will be asked where you want the files to be extracted to. The default
    location (a temporary file) is ok, so select 'next'. You will then be advised that the extraction has
    finished. Click 'Finish'.

    7) A new window will appear with the extracted files in (both Mac and Windows).
    Double click on the Windows.exe file. You may be presented with a Windows security
    warning.
    If so, select 'Run' as the files are safe. There may be a delay before the next step starts.

    8) Pop-up windows and instructions will guide you through the rest of the installation
    process. You must close MS Outlook (if it's open) before completing the installation.

    9) During the installation process you will be asked if you would like an iTunes shortcut
    on your desktop – Please do so.

    10) You may be asked to restart your computer – Please do so if asked.

    11) Once you have restarted you will see an iTunes shortcut on your desktop.

    12) The download process is complete – you must now follow the following steps
    to complete the process.
    * You MUST now enable the 'Activation only Module' within iTunes.

    13) Create a shortcut on your desktop by right clicking on a blank space on your
    desktop and selecting 'new' and then 'shortcut'.

    14) A 'Create a shortcut' wizard window will appear. In the box within the window
    marked 'Type the location of the item', please type or copy and paste the following
    bolded text in this EXACT format.

    15) Please ensure you use the whole of this text with all punctuation/grammar
    exactly as specified:
    "C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe" /StoreActivationMode 1

    16) Click 'Next'. You will be asked to enter a name for the shortcut. use:
    iTunes Activation Module

    17) Click 'Finish'. You will now see a new iTunes shortcut on your desktop with
    this
    name.

    18) This shortcut is the Activation Module and should be used to unbrick the
    iPhone.
    When you first start this version of iTunes there will be a terms and conditions
    agreement
    that you will need to "accept' in order to proceed.

    Note: Unbricking the iPhone should only be completed after activating the iPhone
    on
    Sales Central. Full instructions on how and when to activate and unbrick will be
    provided in a training job aid on fast track and sales central. You will be
    informed when this Job Aid is available.

    Note: As of July 11 2008, an updated version of iTunes (7.7) will be publicly
    available
    from http://www.apple.ca. It will have the activation only mode built in
    (like 7.6.3b4) so you will not need to use unique Weblinks to download it. As it is a publicly
    available
    version of iTunes it still needs to be configured for store use. Therefore
    you MUST 'enable' version 7.7 in the same way as you did for version 7.6.3b4 that is
    detailed above.
    1) To update your current version (7.6.3b4) to V7.7 to benefit from software updates;
    Open iTunes, select 'help' and 'check for updates' or go to http://www.apple.ca
    and download iTunes from the 'downloads' section. You do not have to uninstall
    previous versions first.
    2) You MUST still enable the activation only mode, using the shortcut creation
    method
    above.

    Make sure to Zip the file and rename it to something else so different sites won't find it suspicious.

    Also, if it's less than 100 MB, upload it to www.[PIRACY.mf].com Much faster.
