    Hi thanks for looking

    Ok . i decided to try and update/jailbreak to 1.1.3...

    I had a jailbroken OTB 1.1.2

    I ran the Official dev updater from installer

    it ran - did its thing then restarted and all looked well except i had none of my 3rd party programs (other than installer).

    I thought sweet ill just go into installer and get all my programs back

    Opended installer and it said it couldnt load sources so i went to the sources tab and pressed refresh.

    It seemed to refresh then came up with "installer needs to be updated" so i did this and it soon said exit installer so i pressed the home button then...

    Blank... then very soon after the screen with the cable the arrow and itunes icon with "slide for emergency" down the bottom in different languages...

    Tried the *#306* thing but nothing...

    Also tried opening itunes but it says "There is a problem with your iphone"

    I CAN navigate thru the files in ibrickr 0.91 if this helps....

    PLEASE help is there ANYTHING i can do now???

    ANY help appriciated
    Thanks, Laz

    try restarting your phone. if not then i dont know but try this:


    in the dev team 1.1.3 upgrader did you choose to use the "hacktivated" option? if not you should have. If you can get into the files, then try getting your hands on the stock "lockdownd" file and replace it.

    I FIXED IT!!!

    Thanks for every1s help!

    I discovered last night a way to fix it. What i did was...

    First i had to uninstall itunes 7.6 and quicktime and delete all itunes files (including the library file in my music folder) then find and install itunes 7.5 THIS IS ESSENTIAL. Once i got into itunes 7.5 i had to get my iphone into recovery mode which i found was harder than in 1.1.2. I had to..

    Hold the power and menu buttons till it turned off then CONTINUED TO HOLD HOME FOR 15 SECONDS ONCE IT HAD TURNED OFF BUT LET GO OF POWER. Once it was in recovery mode i was able to use itunes (which said iphone in recovery mode) to put firmware 1.1.1 on by shift + clicking restore and selecting the downloaded 1.1.1 firmware i found on the net. this restored it to 1.1.1 firmware then i had to activate/jailbreak again and install 1.1.2 firmware again(following this guide: http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=18284).

    All my programs/songs/everything was deleted but i didnt have that much on there neway so its no biggie

    Also I was relieved to find that i still hav the 1.1.2 OTB bootloader (Code: 4.02.13_G) so i can still use a turbosim (the new 1.1.3 bootloader (Code:4.03.13_G) cant take turbosims so if u update from a 1.1.2 otb iphone to 1.1.3 VIA ITUNES it usually stuffs it). You can find ur bootloader by going into "Settings" in ur iphone then "General" then "About" and its the 2nd last one (Modem Firmware)

    So ill post this here and hopefully help some people out!

    Thanks again for every1s help

    You can still go into recovery mode with iTunes 7.6 and selectively downgrade to 1.1.1.
