    Arrow Recovery 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?

    Thanks,

    DeanCorp

    Download 1.0.2 from:

    http://content.info.apple.com/iPhone...8_Restore.ipsw

    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.

    Can someone out there confirm that OPTION-RESTORE allows you to choose which firmware you'd like to apply? Much appreciated.

    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"

    Any ideas?

    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?
