01-09-2011, 06:32 PM #1i messed with the N82AP file and i bricked my iphone. Anyway i can access it again?
Alright so i jailbroke my iphone 3G and everything was fine but then it would crash anytime i tried to multitask native to non native apps. (hitting reply to a text while in the facebook app for instance). So i found somebody online with the same problem and he linked a N82AP file that fixed it. i SSH'd into my iphone and replaced it and it worked. But one small problem was that he had custom wallpapers set to false. I thought i could open it in Textedit and type true then put it back in and it would work again but it bricked my iphone.
I tried to restore from itunes but get a 'could not restore 1015 error'. i did a complete itunes uninstall and reinstalled and tried again, but no luck.
is there anyway i can get my iphone back? Or anyway to go into the core folder and replace the N82AP file with the correct one?

So what is the current state of the phone?
01-09-2011, 06:54 PM #3

Have you tried restoring in DFU mode?
01-09-2011, 06:56 PM #5

i tried that as well, but it shows the apple logo then goes back to recovery mode.

Did you run it with iTunes closed?
01-09-2011, 07:24 PM #11
at first no, but i tried and the same thing happened.

1015 means it did restore just got to get it out of recovery. Familiar with irecovery?
01-09-2011, 07:33 PM #13
no i'm not. Should i try it?
01-09-2011, 07:34 PM #14
Thats the only thing I can think of. I cant believe Umbrella didnt do the trick

i downloaded it, but every time i run it, it goes to the terminal and gives me this Whoops! - TinyGrab
is there something i'm doing wrong?
oh sorry, i just read that you don't launch it. But, when i enter the command iRecovery -s terminal says command not found

any other suggestions?
i can't believe i messed it up with such a stupid mistake.
is there a custom ipsw i can try restoring to?
i was reading a little about that.
okay good news! i found an old 3.1.3 ipsw and restored to it, i got the error, but then kicked it out of restore and it's now asking for a valid sim.
but since i'm on T-Mobile i don't have one.
now my question is, i want to jailbreak my iphone but redsn0w doesn't recognize the ipsw that i downloaded so how can i do it?
