hi folks in short words,
a friend of mine got an iphone which was unlocked v 1.0.2.
he tought he can update it and updated it to version 1.1.2. via itunes
then he said it automatically got updated to 1.1.3
now nothing works anymore.
now i tried to restore it from 1.1.3 to 1.0.2. via the ipsw file
didnt work - it says in itunes something wrong with your phone.
i tried the same to restore to 1.1.2 - didnt work.
after those two tries nothing worked at all and it kept staying in recovery mode/ restore mode.
so i updated it back to 1.1.3
my question: where should i start now ? should i handle it as an 1.1.3 otb?
downgrading? at the moment i can not do more then sliding the emergency button.
pls need help as soon as possible
appreciated - thanks

have you tried to install jailbreak via the *#307# sequence ?
im guessing that installing jailbreak would be your next move?
from what I can recall
you type in *#307# then press the call button
then delete the *#307#
type 0 then call again
then press answer
the phone should start ringing again
that should put you back to the keypad
From there you can select contacts
add a contact
Add the URLs prefs://11
to the contact and save it
then in the contact screen select the prefs:// contact and setup your wifi connection
then select settings or general (cant recall which) and set Auto Lock to Never
Then you clcik your home button
you should be back at the activate your sim card screen.
from there you
slide the emercency call
then dial the same sequance to get to the keypad
select contacts and then go the the jailbreakme.com
i think you have to install appsnap after that.
I am sure someone here can tell you if my advice is totally wrong or not.

it worked till
+that should put you back to the keypad+
then there is no other option then - emergency call. :-(
any other idea?

when the phone offers you the emergency call option does it also say that you have to activate the sim / phone
p.s. sorry for the daft question but you do have a sim card in the phone?

no it does not say activate sim.
yes there is a sim card inside but not an original one (AT&T).
does this help?

have you tried to install jailbreak via the jailbreak zip file
jailbreak.jar for mak or jailbreak.bat for windows?
