PC & Mac Guide - Downgrade from 2.0 to 1.1.4
Before we begin please budget about 45mins of your time to get this done.
*This is only for 1st Generation iPhones that have been upgraded... not for 3G iPhones*
1. Download iTunes 7.5 from here: Direct Download iTunes 7.5 to Activate iPhone Anywhere Internationally » My Digital Life
2. Uninstall your current version of iTunes and reboot your PC.
3. Go to My Documents > My Music > iTunes and delete the file called "iTunes Library.itl"
4. Install iTunes 7.5
Note for OSX users:
If you are on OSX and want to attempt to downgrade your iTunes, you can try these steps:
Load up Terminal and type the following:
rm -r /Applications/iTunes.app
rm -r /Library/Receipts/iTunesX.pkg
rm -r /Applications/iTunes.app
rm -r /Library/Receipts/iTunesX.pkg
rm -r /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework
5. Download the 1.1.4 restore file from the here http://www.modmyi.com/forums/downloa...o=file&id=2231 if you don't already have it.
6. Put your phone into DFU mode using the following steps
a. Plug your phone into iTunes (ignore the message that pops up)
b. Power the phone OFF
c. Hold power and home for EXACTLY 10 seconds
d. Release power (continue to hold home)
e. iTunes will recognize iphone in restore mode (you can let go of home now)
7. Hold shift and click Restore - select the 1.1.4 firmware file you downloaded
8. After it's done restoring you will get error 1015 and the phone should be in recovery mode (iTunes logo with cable)
9. Important! Hold shift and click Restore and select the 1.1.4 firmware file and RESTORE AGAIN.
10. After it's done open iLiberty "other tools" tab and click "jump out of recovery mode". (note - if you didn't restore TWICE as instructed above the phone won't jump out of recovery mode)
Note: On a Mac you can use Independence to kick out of recovery mode. http://code.google.com/p/independence/downloads/list
OK, you now have a phone with 1.1.4 Firmware and the 4.05.04 baseband. Now we have to downgrade the baseband
11. Download KiPhone
*Unzip all files into a folder before you run the program or it will fail*
12. Run KiPhone with Debug Boot and iErase options checked. (Leave the box for downgrade UNCHECKED)
13. Plug your phone into iTunes and shift+click restore to 1.1.4 AGAIN. This will write the correct 4.04.05 baseband to you phone. (You may have to put your phone into recovery mode manually for iTunes to let you restore - hold power and home until the phone reboots - continue to hold until you see the iTunes logo)
14. Your phone should now be factory 1.1.4 with the matching baseband - all you have left is to jailbreak/unlock with you method of choice.

K when I open KiPhone, there are three options that can be checked. The first one is Downgrade baseband. Does that one need to be checked too? Or is it only debug boot and ierase

Incorrect Sir... you are ERASING your baseband, now downgrading it. Please follow my guidelines EXACTLY.

Hi, I followed your steps exactly up until #13 "13. Plug your phone into iTunes and shift+click restore to 1.1.4 AGAIN. This will write the correct 4.04.05 baseband to you phone." When I plug the iPhone into the iTunes, the iTunes is asking for a correct SIM card, AT&T that is. I'm a tMobile customer and I have tossed away the AT&T sim that came w/iPhone. Is there a way around it? Thank you!
I got it here:

I follow your steps. Howver, when I get into step 6, at e. you said itunes will recognize iphone in restore mode. But I cannot get the restore mode and even I click the SHIFT on the key board, still no action. When I did wrong? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
07-16-2008, 05:54 PM #15
all right, I followed everything religiously and it still didn't work. The last step 13, I put the phone into DFU mode and then restored in itunes - got a 1015 error.
When I jailbreak it, still no tmobile availalbe what am I doing wrong?

think i'm in the same boat as avdosha. got to the last restore and i get error 1015 again. trying to restore one more time..... please please please...... (i put it into restore mode. not DFU).
Do i just go ahead and jailbreak the phone with i liberty to check the software?
I just checked my firmware. it's the .04.05.04_G firmware.
any ideas? do i keep trying KI phone?

trying right now your link... damn... My modem version is 04.05.04G maybe I do have an old kiPhone...
Ok, i downloaded a new kiphone and once it ran, the iphone had a message for me: repair needed. this phone cannot receive/make calls. am I doomed???
10 minutes later - IT WORKS!!! I just needed a new kiPhone installed!!! YES! Thank you Poseidon!
What I did was installed new kiPhone, iErase and downgraded and debuged. Then restored in iTunes, then I got that message about repair needed. Indeed, all the info about the bluetooth/modem etc was erased! Then I restored again in iTUnes, and then jailbroke by ziPhone. That's all folks!
