    Extract the ramdisk as such: dd if=009-7698-4.dmg of=ramdisk.dmg bs=512 skip=4 conv=sync
    Mount the extracted ramdisk.
    From the ramdisk, copy /usr/local/bin/bbupdater, /usr/local/standalone/firmware/ICE03.14.08_G.eep, and /usr/local/standalone/firmware/ICE03.14.08_G.fls to your iPhone. Place these into a folder on the OS partition (such as /bbupdate) and not into a folder on /var/root. The /var/root partition is set noexec and you cannot run programs from there.
    Disable com.apple.CommCenter.plist--either using UIctl or launchctl: launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    On the iPhone, navigate to the folder where you stored bbupdater and the eep and fls files.
    Run bbupdater as such: ./bbupdater -f *.fls -e *.eep
    Reload comm center: launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist

    relock? you meant bring your phone back to factory settings?
    if so, just hook up to iTunes..and click RESTORE...let it runs...done.

    I see...i guess, you just gonna have to wait for the new updated firmware...not even sure then.

    BTW, why would you want to relock your phone?

    Because the new update will brick unlocked phones, and restore will not work, the unlock is restore proof because it messes with the firmware.

    Why you want to upgrade the firmware ? is there a new one ?, what version you have in your phone and what´s the actual firmware ?
