Does anybody has an idea how to free my iphone.
I tried every thing in Mac and Windows put in recovery mode thousand times, change itunes version change computer, change usb, restart computer, restart iphone, white screen iphone, in off restore mode iphone, etc, etc, etc.
And nothing works
a little bit of history...
I was unlocking my iphone what I did perfect, then y start activating to work with my carrier and it showed me a sim error so a did the activating step (upload the iunlock file and execute the iunlock app) and then I get the Recovery Mode ( the deadly yellow triangle) and since then I've been reading and reading to make my iphone work and nothing.
It's been 2 months since the recovery mode got me please some advice is needed.
What do I doooo? everybody say that is easy and I can't recover it when I connected to my computer Mac or Windows it show me the 1603 error in itunes 7.3.x and error 1604 in itunes 7.4.x
is Fixable or I throw it in to a wall.....

So almost the same thing happened to me. What you want to do is. Open i tunes, connect iphone. turn the iphone on so you see the yellow triangle. Hold the sleep/wake button and the home button for about 8 seconds or so until the screen goes off. LET GO of the sleep/wake but keep holding the home button for another few seconds until itunes see's it. when it does, let go. Hit recover in itunes. FIXED.

If that doesnt work. The published way to fix an Ipod stuck in recovery mode is to change the drive letter of the iPod in your computer manager.
I know its for ipods but should work the same for iphones as well. I've used this technique several times.iPhuc Your Couch!

Incase you still need help and for future people.. I actually jailbroke my iPhone 1.1.1 using carnaval and everything was working fine untill I installed anysim 1.1
so when I tried to restore it I got error 1011
To fix it what you have to do is uninstall:
Apple Mobile Device
Apple Software Updater (something like that)
(in this order)
Go to iTunes.com and install... don't w/l to desktop just run it or open in firefox
install itunes completely
then restart computer
then try doing the restore
it should work now..
if it doesn't then Apple will replace it
and when u call apple and they ask for number (if ur doing the jailbreak just say you opened the iPhone and you connected to iTunes and it asked you to restore which you did and then u got that error and you already reinstalled itunes)

If you keep getting the 1011 or 1012 on itunes and still getting the yellow triangle or the usb images on your iphone the easiest way to do is to restore it back to 1.0.2. you will get the 1011,1012,2003 error. open ibrickr do not close itunes, ibrickr will ask you to downgrade follow instruction. if you get the green screen try rebooting your iphone and restore it again on itunes.. this procedure will take awhile, been there.. when you finally get another error from itunes, still have the yellow triangle go back to ibrickr and choose the middle option, it will tell you to click that fix button. will take anywhere from 3-4 mins sometimes up to 10. then you will end up with the activate screen. jailbreak using apptap then pacay.
Then follow Revan's guide http://modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10461
This work for me like a charm.. Hope works for you too.
As long iTunes and iBrickr recognize your iphone everything is possible to fix it

use another computer for opening the ibrick

11-16-2007, 07:08 PM #14can't use anysim with my iphone
My iphone is modded but the firmware version is saying 04.02.13_G but when i go to itunes its say that version firmware says 1.0.2, when i run anysim it just says this iphone already patched will quit now.
it the program that allows you to unlock your iphone, if your running windows you use jailbreak with ibrickr and it goes through a stream of process and your phone will be unlock if you followed the instructions right
try running AppTapp that worked for me but try to run ibrickr first to get the yellow screen and thin run AppTapp that should unlock it.

Hi there, i read your iphone post as regards to your problems with it being stuck on the yellow triangle and the white lines scrolling down the screen. I have exactly the same problem and i cannot fix it.
Did you manage to fix it?
My phone was 1.1.2 downgraded to 1.1.1, then re upgraded 1.1.2. I then upgraded by accident to 1.1.3 on itunes and it went back to the original screen of locked.
So i then went through the ibrickr process and i got the red screen with the triangle, so i then tried to input the firmware which i got with the ibrickr file (think it was 1.0.2) and it went through the process but it stuck when it was 99.9% done.
The phone is now stuck with the yellow triangle/blue background and white scrolling lines. Any ideas bud?

DON'T use ZiPhone!! Use iLiberty+, Winpwn, or iPlius. ZiPhone kills phones!Apples taste good.
