Hack that Phone - Finding the ECID for the iPhone 3G S
i went ahead and did that however i accidentally plugged in the phone when connected to itunes in regular mode. it said a dialog of "waiting for activation", and i immediately unplugged it all nervous. Oddly though, the screen on itunes just showed me the registration screen.
Yet, after i read the detailed directions and got the ECID from recovery mode, it booted back to regular mode. I expected the "plug-into-itunes" screen, but instead i got the regular "slide to unlock" screen...with springboard and all, the service icon said "no service" obviously because of the stock ATT sim inside". But i was perplexed...there was the springboard right before my eyes...did i do something right? could i use this as a touch till the JB comes out or should i just leave it be?

the exact same thing happened to me, tbh i still don't get how it activated itself, though for me i accidentally put mine in DFU first then rebooted then put in recovery while itunes was up, also thanks for explaining the ECID part for those not in the loop, after some preliminary testing push works since it was "activated", i used beejive to test if any1 wanted to know, youtube also working fine, got to throw more apps and sync mine to see what else works, will report back once i do

1. is it safe to use the phone at least as a "touch" for now?
2. i'm a t-mobile customer...obviously i wont be putting my tmo sim until a proper unlock is in effect (to be safe), so should i leave the stock ATT sim inside? or just take it out and leave the phone sim-less for now
3. @IPHONEPLZZ...are you an ATT customer? curious
06-27-2009, 01:05 PM #350
Since they patched the hack could someone now describe how it was done? Please satisfy my curiosity!
06-27-2009, 02:11 PM #351
1. from what i can see its fine, i just synced mine and everything went ok
2. i currently left the original att sim in and just threw it in airplane mode so it would sync
3. i am a loyal tmobile customer waiting for unlock
on a side note as you see in the pic it says ATT as carrier, i assume since it was " activated" that would be the answer

@IPHONEPLZZ when you sync'd, did you start fresh or did you restore from a previous backup? (mind you, my last backup was from a jailbroken 2G iphone with 2.2.1)

i started fresh, no back up, ,most of the time backups cause more problems than they are worth, i found this neat program a while back that backs up most of the things you would need, i haven't used it personally but i will once the 3gs is my primary phone
here is the link
iPhone Backup Utility

Another mention on the Purplera1n ecid--if your phone doesn't show up in the usb--go to options and set configure and refresh, and then open up the first tab and hit refresh and it should show up then....it took me a while to figure this out.
Oh and when i set up my new 3gs i restored from a previous backup and it kept some of the things i had set like system string on the status bar "which i have customized" and ********** was installed still as well....so i guess this shows that it can be jailbroke and/or manipulated at least..
BRING ON THE JAILBREAK!!!!

thanx! but im a mac user, so i used this app:
iPhone / iPod Touch Backup Extractor
it allows me to open up iphone backup files and extract just the things i need...in this case i just wanted the photos is all
06-27-2009, 10:21 PM #356
finally, the last 2 of my order arrived

I'm not sure whether extracting your photos and restoring just them would cause problems.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

there is a trick to restoring the photos, you first take a picture on the fresh phone before you copy pictures, then copy and chmod the pictures, taking new pics will now work, aka no blank spaces when you take pics
06-30-2009, 12:06 AM #359
@iphoneplzz which chmod? 755 or 777?
06-30-2009, 03:23 PM #360
tbh i forgot because when i restored i tried all the diff ones till it worked lol, atm tho i just ssh'd to my DCIM folder and that folder was set to 755, then the 100APPLE folder was set to 700, and the pics inside are to 644, though i would try to chmod to mobile first
