Thread: Iphone bricked ?

    Default Iphone bricked ?
    Hi!

    OK here's the deal.

    A few days ago i bought a iphone from a guy. He told me that everything was working fine BUT No Wifi / No Sound / No Phonecalls. Well i thought it was a wrong update or so. I really dont know how he tried to unlock the phone. Maybe hw or sw. He couldn't tell me because also bought this phone from another guy..

    This is what i figured out so far:

    There is No Wifi / No IMEI / No Sound.
    I dial *3001#12345#* but there is no modem firmware. I already searched on this forum and the net and i tried the bbupdater guide but no good so far. With the bbupdater i'll get this error:

    Preparing to flash using /dev/tty.baseband at 750000 baud
    Please reset target
    Resetting target...
    ProcessOutlineUpdated: Process time was 10.0 sec.
    Retry attempt 1

    it retry's 9 more times before outputting

    When i try to ping the baseband it says no responding.

    Downgrade the iphone to a lower version then 1.02 didn't work

    So what do you guys think...is my iphone a little bit ****"ed up or is there any hope left for him before i throw him in the garbage can ?

    Thank you for you're answer!

    Well, i'm stuck at step 7 where it say's "From your iPhone tap the Terminal icon on your springboard and type cd /usr/bin then hit enter, then type chmod +x bbupdater and hit enter then type ./bbupdater -f *.fls -e *.eep and hit enter"

    When i try this i'll get this message:

    Preparing to flash using /dev/tty.baseband at 750000 baud
    Please reset target
    Resetting target...
    ProcessOutlineUpdated: Process time was 10.0 sec.
    Retry attempt 1
    Retry attempt 2
    Retry attempt 3 etc. etc. till 10

    Then i message Baseband bootloader is too old; update to 1.8 or later and try again

    Any ideas left ?

    I think you are using the wrong bbupdater, make sure to use the one that was included, and not an already existing one.

    EDIT:
    I had a phone with no IMEI & ICCID, also fw was not showing up.
    but it had sound, and WiFi. I fixed it.

    The other one was just like yours and it would always hang or error at one
    point or another no mater what I did or what method I tried.

    I'm sure you are in the same boat as me, so I'm sorry to say until a TRUE virginizer is released you're out of luck. The current ones do not fully restore the seczone.
