I just want to say how glad I am that you guys are out there doing all this work.
If it wasn't for you guys I would not be able to have an iPhone here in Puerto Rico...
I get better customer support from this website than from Apple or AT&T itself ... it's strange.. but true !!!
THANK YOU !!!!!

I tried over and over again 'til I left both buttons pressed for about 10 secs after the screen went blank, then released the sleep button (top) and iTunes recognized the phone, after that the option/alt-restore process selecting 1.0.2 ipsw file. At the end you will get an error but it should be error (1103). after that you are back in 1.0.2 Hope it helpsI Don't use Windoze... I am MAC!!!

tried that and it updated to 1.02 but I still get incorrect sim error
10-01-2007, 11:06 PM #166UPDATE: Not confirmed yet, but for those having the "incorrect SIM" issue after dowgrading, try this (thanks, Doerr)
Just turn off the phone, take out the SIM card, turn it on, and when its done put it back in.

TO THOSE WHO ARE HAVING ISSUES DOWNGRADING:
What version of iTunes are you using?
Try using 7.3.2. This version of iTunes has no clue about the 1.1.1 update.
Available here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_itunes/?3005
After installation, place the 1.0.2 restore file (iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw) in the following directory:
"CDocuments and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates" (without the quotes).
EDIT: the link provided is for Windows users.

I already unblock my iphone and working perfectly . I have a question. Is that truth that the new iphones selling in store at this moment canīt be unblocked, even if you use 1.0.2 firmware version?

10-02-2007, 11:37 AM #173The Downgrading from 1.1.1 to 1.0.2.
This process does work,
First be docked to itunes hold the hom and power key til the screen goes blank a couple secs after ur slider disappears for the off
now keep ur finger on the home button and let go of the power button ur computer stays connected during this.
now ur computer if windows will detect ur phone at that moment let go of the home button
itunes should still be open and has detected ur fone and ur screen should be blank on the fone.
hold down ur shift key and click on the restore button, a window opens find the file update that u downloaded 1.0.2. and select and hit ok. let it do its thing.
Now u are set, I used jailbreak on mine and everything went back to normal, now I have been using it for 3 days and I just started getting issues with the EDGE, it says no edge subscription dont know why yet but I am looking into it. with the edge out no email or web.....
My 3 year old sister could do this....

My mac itunes 7.42 failed at the 1.11 upgrade then subsequently failed at putting on either 1.11 or 1.02 using restore. The 1.11 upgrade just basically forced the phone into recovery mode forever. It starts the restore when I try, but it always fails for 'an unknown error (6)' What the heck is going on?
Also the home button thing doesn't do anything.
Oh and funny enough, I quit out of itunes one time and the phone comes back up (no yellow triangle or apple), and its working again, no restore has happened no upgrade has happened whatsoever, back at 1.02 with all my files still there. But syncing doesn't work..... so weird. I just want to restore it basically right now and it just won't do it.

it didnt work for me i follow the instruction and it shows up the errors that u indicated but i still have the incorrrect sim.

even more crazy, while doing all of this one of my mac USB ports decided to freak out that I was plugging in the iphone in and out. It stopped recognizing ANYTHING including the mouse.
So I finally try another port and voila, able to restore to 1.02.. activated successfully, now to resync my data, move to 1.11, and wait for a new version of installer so I can enjoy my toy again

i bought sevral iphones and i got 1 that is 1.1.1 so i compared the imei no's my resaults were if the imei contains 30000 its 1.0.2 it can be unlocked if its 30001 its 1.1.1. for example if its 0112430000***** then its the old update. also if its 01124500***** if you see either the 500 or the 30000 your good but if you see the 30001 dont bother opening and through $40 to return it.
Note this is a hypothesis i made and worked with over 10 phones!
please confirm this if any one has other thoughts to it.
