Hello, I have been working on this for 4 hours and am at a complete loss.
I have been using this site and all of the instructions and they have been great.
I have done all of the software updates and have been able to have a complete unlocked and jailbroken phone without any problems.
I updated to 1.1.2 and had no problems. I updated to the newest version of Customize and somehow my keyboard became corrupted. I tried everything to get the original keyboard working but had not luck.
As a last resort I had to restore the phone. I ran the instructions step by step without a problem. BUT when I got 1.1.1 restored and tried to get out of the restore mode I became stuck. I have tried iNdependance and iPhuc with no luck. iNdependance does nothing and iPhuc gives me a "missing symbol" error.
I can upgrade back to 1.1.2 but cant activate. I have been stuck in this cycle for hours and am at a loss. I can find no way to get out of the recovery/dfu mode.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for the help.

I too have this same issue? Anybody have a fix for this?

ibrick helped me with the boot feature, if you get a green screen reflash 1.1.1 on it, than use the "booter" in ibrick again, should be a red background now and out of restore mode.

do you know of any osx programs that can do it?

I'm on OS X and had the same problem. Bizarrely, I was sitting staring at my iPhone, despairing, as it displayed the little yellow warning symbol at me and it suddenly went into the 'activate phone' screen. I have no idea why, but I'd tried restoring it countless times - maybe it just needs a few minutes to sort itself out?
Also, have you tried with iTunes 1.4.2 as well as 1.5?

make shure you have independence 1.3 beta2
11-19-2007, 03:39 PM #11
I have that. But Itunes doesn't seem to finish activating would Independence activation work you think?

is your phone originaly 1.1.2 if yes then no because independence is not compatible with 1.1.2 . you would have to dowgrade all the way down to 1.0.2.

It was 1.0.2 then I upgraded to 1.1.2 on accident. Now I am downgrading to 1.1.1 and the downgrade works but I no longer have use of my phone because it doesn't find reception to activate. Every time I try to go back down to 1.0.2 I get error 1.
Update: After upgrading to 1.1.2 with the help of Jailbreakme.com I now can use my phone again.
