09-19-2007, 05:38 AM #1Recovery Mode If New Firmware Is Released
I was just thinking..I get my iPhone on Friday.
I am going to be following the Wiki OSX guide. At the start of the guide it says if you have firmware version 1.0.2 you can skip to step 2 otherwise follow these steps. And those steps are, run the iPhone in recovery mode and click restore.
My concern is what happens if the new firmware is released either tomorrow or on Friday V1.1.1 and then running in recovery mode will automatically update the latest firmware rather than just updating V1.0.2.
Does anyone have any suggestions for this?

Download 1.0.2 from:
Keep it in the .ipsw format.
To use the file for a restore in iTunes, hold down the "option" key while pressing the restore button, this allows you to choose which file to use for the restore.

hold down the "Option" key?? I read in another article its hold down the
"SHIFT" key while clicking on restore.....what the heck is the "Option" key?

Option is for mac and shift is for window.

some crazy MAC thing Apple people have to compensate for not having a pc.

Option + click does work as it did this morning.

Apple (being the jerks they are)
will probably remove this function in the next update.
Apple always finds ways to piss people off.

To remove this function wouldn't Apple also have to release a new version of iTunes?

OK so I really screwed up! I did the restore and update in iTunes and now i'm stuck with 1.1.1... I've already tried a couple of times restoring from the 1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw but i keep getting "iPhone couldn't be Restored. An Unknown Error ocurred (1)" when restoring. iNdependence and iActivator are not working since I keep getting "Error switching to recovery mode"
09-28-2007, 09:14 AM #16me too!
I got my iphone restored with the new firmware but iNdependence always gives out the same error message "error switching to restore mode"... CRAP!!!!

I've read some about apache, unziping, or tricking itunes etc...
but didnt someone in the first page say, DONT connect to the internet when restoring so itunes will find the latest version within your computer to upgrade/restore to?
Last time I've upgraded it was 1.0.2 that was dl-ed via itunes, so next time I want to unlock another device with an older firmware, wouldn't it make sense that I do not connect with the internet resulting in my macbook looking for the latest version off of my computer?

but downgrading wont work with this new firmware. that's the problem.

haha ur stuck in my boat buddy, its gonna be a while....i recommend getting some beer and breaking out the old modded windows mobile 6 phone and waiting till they find a new jail break to 1.1.1

yes - sadly that seems to be the case. nothing elso to do than wait.
i was just wondering, that how many iphone users are in the same situation thru out the world? there must be quorter of a million people pissed off at apple right now!
