    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdCBt3VBqow"]YouTube - iPhone Restore Problem with iTunes 7.4[/ame]


    i have gone through the steps i've found on hackintosh with apptapp and using terminal to ./iphonecomm -s 4 and all that but it's not working.

    my iphone is running 1.02 and was unlocked via the guide on this website with iunlock etc. i was having problems when i installed summerboard but managed to fix it. then the other week i had more problems my phone was running slow etc. so i restored with a newer itunes and the older independnace and this happened.

    i can get into restore mode with a yellow tringale and itunes will recognizes the iphone as been in recovery mode i can restore software 1.02 but it just ends up rebooting the same as before.

    if you fix my phone i'll pay via paypal to your email.

    i just want my iphone working don't have another phone at the moment so i'm gutted.

    please help.

    try downloading one of the other firmwares (1.1.1 or 1.1.2) and restore to that and see how your phone and itunes react...

    had that very same problem ! but i was able to fix it

    you will need-
    iphone versons 1.0.2, 1.1.1 ,1.1.2 (download from mmi downloads)
    ibricka


    i used a pc (not mac)
    step 1 get itunes 7.4 or later running
    step 2 connect iphone to pc
    step 3 hold down the power and home button may take some time when screen goes black release power button but keep holding the home button untill itunes picks it up in recovery mode
    step 4 (you must have all the firmwares downloaded to your desktop b4 proceeding) itunes will tell you that you need to recover your iphones firmware . in itunes hold down your shift key and click on restore. a dialog will appear select firmware version 1.1.2 and restore.
    step 5 after that you will have to downgrede firmware and baseband using this guide
    http://www.modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15310

    only thing i done differently in the guide above was i used ibricka to downgrade from 1.1.1 to 1.0.2 it make it a bit easya and when itunes said that it did not downgrage open ibricka and it will say boot iphone

    it work like a dream and i waz shittin myslef and my iphone was 1.1.1 firmware otb
    let me know how it went ! or if you have any questions?

    open ibricka and chick on boot iphone

    edit didint wont the money just a thanks would be nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    because i know wot it feels like

    If your iphone is running 1.02 software and is stuck in an endless reboot loop here’s how to fix it.

    My phone had the following symptoms

    Would reboot when I made a software restore in 1.02
    Would reboot to a black screen then white text would scroll down the screen for about 20sec then reboot.

    How to fix.

    I was using a mac.
    I had itunes 7.4.2 (freshly installed no existing plist files) to remove any existing itunes files. Just search them in finder and remove anything that has itunes in it. Drag them to the recycling bin.

    1. get your phone into DFU mode.
    2. this is done by first placing your phone into recovery mode.
    3. hold down the home and start button until your apple logo appears let go of the power button and hold the home button till you get a black screen ( your iphone needs to be connected to your computer) hold the home button till itunes detects your iphone.
    4. You will know if you are in DFU mode as itunes will detect your iphone but your iphone will have a black screen.
    5. Now do a restore to 1.1.1 using the alt select firmware method. ( hold down alt button then click restore itunes will then ask your to locate the firmware.)
    6. Let the restore take place this will take longer than 1.02 as the file is about 20mb bigger.
    7. fingers crossed your iphone should now be running and functional on 1.1.1
    8. Follow this guide

    http://www.modmyi.com/wiki/index.php...out_of_the_box

    to get your iphone jailbroken and unlocked. Make sure once you’ve jailbroken your iphone you install BSD subsystem from installer.

    Hope this works for you as it worked for me great.

    Cheers

    http://www.modmyi.com/wiki/index.php...out_of_the_box

    to get your iphone jailbroken once you have jailbroken your iphone,
    install BSD subsystem from installer. Then add a source in installer http://i.unlock.no
    once you have done this. Now you need to check if your ime is the same and on the back of your iphone. Your ime is under general settings – about. If it does not match youneed to install The Virginizer. This if found under installer under unlocking tools.
    Install this and run it and let your phone reboot and turn on.

    You will now have to run through the guide at

    http://www.modmyi.com/wiki/index.php...out_of_the_box
    and install BSD subsystem again.

    This in installer under unlocking tools install Any Sim and run it.
    Let it do its thing for about 5mins.
    Now your done you should have a unlocked iphone running on 1.1.1
    Hope this works for you as it worked for me great.

    cheers
