no its supose to say that just exit itunes and go to apptapp and then let apptapp do its thing and then run the activate thingy.
10-22-2007, 07:03 PM #3umm i dont think sooo
heres the thing
my iphone 1.1.1 already has apptapp on it
since 1.1.1 isnt really ok to use apptapp on it crashed my iphone by hiding all my icons and switching the 'att' symbol to 'ipod'
sooo i tries to restore but i got that error
it says extracting files
then it says getting iphone ready for restore or s/th like that
then it stops - could not b restored unknown errer 1

I just downgraded last night because of safari an ipod instability under 1.1.1
I used independence 1.2.5 to put the phone in DFU mode and then used iTunes to option/restore to 1.0.2. IIRC, I had to have the AT&T SIM card inserted while I restored. I then used independence again to load SSH, used cyberduck to load anysim 1.1. I then put my sim back in, rebooted and ran anysim. There were various error messages on the phone during the process but not many were true!
Phone's now back at 1.0.2 and stable again.

i was trying apptapp also with no luck... no luck with iTunes either...
what worked was ibrickr v.9
put the phone in recovery/restore mode by holding down the power and home button. start ibrickr v.9
there should be and option to downgrade. It will put your phone in some kind of DFU mode... Your screen will be white... i waited for about 5 mins and got tired of looking at it so i unplugged and restarted ibrickr... ibrickr told me to connect to itunes and choose the 1.0.2.ipsw that if you followed the directions put in in the ibrickr directory. just choose it and let it run... you should get an error at the end of the restore which i guess is normal but everything turned out ok.
But be warned it did do the downgrade successfull but now iTunes is saying that 1.0.2 is the latest firmware...LOL
Im trying to figure out how to get back to 1.1.1
Ur running windows right?
