  • Downgrade from 1.1.1 to 1.0.2 POSSIBLE NOW!
    KMAC over at hackint0sh has found a way to downgrade from 1.1.1 to 1.0.2. Here's the skinny:
    • Start iTunes and plug in your iPhone which is running the 1.1.1 firmware.
    • Hold down the Sleep and Home button for 10 seconds. Allow the phone to power off, but keep holding down the buttons. After 10 seconds, let go of the Sleep button, but keep the Home button pressed until iTunes sees your iPhone. The screen on your iPhone should be displaying nothing right now.
    • iTunes will ask you if you want to restorea. Hold down Option or Alt, I forget which (Shift if you are in Windows), and click restore. When iTunes asks you what file you would like to restore from, navigate to your 1.0.2 folder. You may have to rename that file to .zip and uncompress it. It will begin to restore.
    • When it completes, you will get an error. The iPhone will display the yellow triangle on the screen. Leave iTunes open, and run AppTapp. This may give you an error, but you should see the "Activate iPhone" screen after.
    • Run AppTapp again. If the iPhone isn't being recognized, restart the computer and then run AppTapp for the second time.
    • Congrats! You now have 1.0.2 again! iNdependence and all other modding apps will now work.
    This has been verified with iTunes

    Wiki here.


    UPDATE: Not confirmed yet, but for those having the "incorrect SIM" issue after dowgrading, try this (thanks, Doerr)

    Just turn off the phone, take out the SIM card, turn it on, and when its done put it back in.

      Check the Wiki to learn how to do iPhone file transfer. That is not a discussion for this thread. It involves installing (using iBrickr or just Installer.app) the BSD Subsystems, and then OpenSSH, and then using WinSCP to drag and drop files to your iPhone. If you need more help with that, please post in the Windows modding forum.

      i got back to 1.0.2 and got it activated using lockdownd but only ibrickr can see my system files. What i mean to say is , ibrickr can see my phone jail broken, but via ssh or terminal i can only see 2 directories .

      Library and Media

      I tried jailbreaking again and again..same problem. This has only happened after i had unlocked my phone...any ideas?

      ok so this seems to have worked for me (sort of)

      as previously posted by another member I am able to get into the iphone now and all modding is possible but no phone service due to the bad IMEI number that was changed with the 1.1.1 update.

      what needs to be done now (i know it's possible since apple did it to my phone) is to change the software IMEI to reflect the real one on the back of my phone. After that is done I'm more than sure that I'll be able to use the phone feature of the iphone.

      after this important discovery instead of ibrick I have a iPhone Touch (everything works including wifi)

      eagerly looking forward to the next discovery.

      unlocked iphone with no phone service... we're getting closer

      I'm on AT&T but my active AT&T sim in my newly purchased iphone today (had to get one since cannot be without phone) and it still continues to display "Incorrect SIM" not instead of the previous message that I received.

      you have to make sure the screen is blank and does NOT have the yellow triangle on the screen. only after you use tapp then you'll see the yellow triangle

      you'll get a similar error but the number in the () is different (for me anyway it was a 3-4 digit number)

      Can't seem to find the answer Im looking for. If I bought a NEW phone, has the firmware, would I be able to downgrade and SIM unlock the phone? Any answers would be great. Most of the posts seem to be dealing with people updating then downgrading.

      Im still trying to find all the information I can but so far from what Ive read, if you have already unlocked your phone, the modem firmware should be the old one. This means, your phone SHOULD be unlocked.

      I answered my own question too, if you get a brand new Iphone, you can't unlock it unless you use a backdoor method. So pretty much all you can do with a brand new Iphone for people looking to Sim Unlock it, is have an Ipod Touch.
