    Default After Pwnage, Itunes wont allow custom IPSW restore, because non-valid sim
    I had my phone unlocked for a year with the 1.02 version of the iphone software. I wanted to go to 1.14 so I decided to use Pwnage to do this.

    Using Pwnage on my 1.02 would fail during the iPwner process. I would get an error -RC2 on my iphone screen as it scrolled by.

    So I allowed Itunes to update my iphone to 1.14 and then redid the iPwner utility and it went thru fine. Phone boots with the pineapple icon.

    Now when I try to go back to Itunes to Alt-restore to use the newly created custom IPSW, itunes wont allow the iphone to show up in Itunes because it says I doesnt have a valid sim.

    Removing the Sim doesnt' help either. No dice.

    Im using itunes version 7.6.2 (9)... is this the problem? And if so, how can I use an older version of itunes?

    Thanks for any help you can give me!

    I suggest that you put your iphone into DFU mode and do a restore back to 1.1.4. Setup as New and then use the pwnage tool to jailbreak,unlock and activate.
