    Accidentally upgraded to 1.1.2? Here's a free solution!


    This tutorial written up for iPhoneUnlockAustralia. It may NOT be copied or redistributed.

    Please read:

    This tutorial is for the Windows Operating System ONLY.

    This tutorial is for iPhones on 1.1.2 that were upgraded ONLY. This is not suitable for brand new iPhones on 1.1.2

    Ready? Let's go.

    Download the pack below:

    http://rapidshare.com/files/70039433...2_Complete.rar

    Start by plugging your iPhone into iTunes in restore mode (hold home and sleep buttons for 10 seconds, then release the sleep button)

    iTunes will recognise it right away. You will see a restore button. Hold shift and click restore. Navigate to your 1.1.1 firmware file.

    Let it restore and eventually you will get a "Unknown error occurred" (1015). Now you have a 1.1.1 iPhone with the 1.1.2 modem firmware.

    Now you need to enter DFU mode. Best solution is to use iBrickr. You have to hold home and sleep buttons and when the screen turns black let go of sleep and keep holding home. iTunes will recognisze this and you will shift+click restore and navigate to 1.0.2 firmware files. Let it restore and you will get a "Unknown error occurred" (1013) and the yellow triange should pop up.


    Now click wiNstallerGUI from the package downloaded above. Click activate and it should activate the phone as well as jailbreak it. Then hit install application and navigate to the installer.app folder inside the first wiNstaller folder in the downloaded pack. You should now have a 1.0.2 phone still with the 1.1.2 modem firmware but is now activated, jailbroken, and you have installer installed.

    Tap installer and update it. Install Community Sources, than BSD Subsystem, and than OpenSSH. Install WinSCP and click it. Connect to the internet on your iphone through Wi-Fi and than click the blue arrow next to it and write down the IP. In WinSCP for the host name type in your IP for username type root and for password type dottie. Change file protocal to SCP.

    Navigate to /usr/bin which is in the root of the phone which looks like this: /

    Transfer all the files in the Baseband folder into /usr/bin

    Close WinSCP and open putty. Type in your IP again into hostname and click ok. Type in root and the when it asks for the password type dottie (you wont see the letters when you type, but I assure you, you are typing.)

    Type this into putty and hit enter after each line. Capitals matter.

    launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist

    cd /usr/bin

    chmod +x ieraser

    chmod +x bbupdater

    ieraser

    bbupdater -v

    bbupdater -f *.fls -e *.eep

    After a 2-3 minute wait it should be done. Now type:

    bbupdater -v

    It should show 3.14_08

    Now restore to 1.0.2 (just a refresh to get rid of unwanted files)
    Then restore to 1.1.1 and continue on with the jailbreak unlock process. (Search for it yourself, or we can do it for you)

    Woo hoo! You now have a 1.1.1 iPhone, downgraded from the accidental 1.1.2 upgrade - easy wasn't it?

    I found this information and here it is for every one who needs it. It worked great for me.

    Don forget to say thanks!

    I am confused on the second step "Now you need to enter DFU mode. Best solution is to use iBrickr.".

    I have an iPhone that was upgraded to 1.1.2. I did the first step and successfully restored to 1.1.1 and got the 1015 message. At this point my phone has the cd and cable picture on the screen and appears to only be able to be in this recovery mode.

    I try to do the restore again with 1.0.2 and get an error that says it cannot be restored. I am obviously missing the step for iBrickr but there are no details for this step.

    Thanks!

    You don't need ibrickr. just get your phone into DFU mode by holding the sleep and home buttons, your screen will stay black, but itunes will recognise your phone being in restore mode

    Update, I downloaded and ran the iBrickr software. I get the red screen and then the phone boots and iBrickr says I have a phone on version 1.1.1 and all that jazz.

    I follow to the next step and pick my 1.0.2 firmware (downloaded from this site) and after it extracts the files it says it cant update the firmware. I'm going to try redownloading the file from here, and iBrickr also has an option to downgrade to 1.0.2 I may try that as well.

    Thanks for any tips!

    I did the downgrade via Brickr and that worked, fantastic! I did the WinSCP and sSH steps and all has gone well. I am now on the last step that says to restore to 1.0.2 then 1.1.1. I have switched into restore mode and in iTunes picked to restore to 1.0.2 and it has currently been at the Restoring Iphone Software bar for about 20 minutes and is one notch into the bar. I assume it has locked up :-( any ideas?

    I assume once I get back to 1.1.1 I can just use jailbreakme.com to install the app program and to activate the phone again?

    Update, I reset the phone and was able to do the 1.0.2 restore again and it was successfull this time, whew.
    It is currently working on the 1.1.1 restore.

    i had the same issue with the unresponsive baseband pinging. If you continue to type in the next command line, the pinging will work when you check the baseband again (after the 2-3 min wait)

    absolutely fabulous mate! I spent hours trying to figure out how to revert my accidental upgrade, and nobody could help me. Definitely the biggest help i received so far. Thanks again. It felt strange going back to a normal phone today after using the iphone for two months.

    Wow this guide somehow seems really similar to mine.. hmm even with my rapidshare files..
    Maybe he stole it?
