IActivator does not recognize any files in the firmware folder or sub-folders. Have I done something wrong? I have followed the instructions exactly as they are laid out.

Works fine except I can only access 300megs of the iphone, and 200 of those are filled with miscellaneous files.

07-30-2007, 03:02 PM #7Doesn't work on a completely unactivated iPhone
I'm trying to get this process working on a completely unactivated iPhone, but it doesn't work. I can generate the activation, but when I try return to jail, I get an error that reads "error opening destination file for writing on phone"
I also notice that a lot of the screenshots in the how to show that it has been done on a previously activated iPhone. Has anybody done this sucesfully on a new out of the box iPhone?

Where can I find the iActivator v.1.1.2???
My iphone has only 300mb of memory now :S

Yah, frankye, where'd you find the new version? Anyone who finds it, post it here so I can update our downloads...
for anyone having problems, open up iPhoneinterface while connected, and put the Services.plist file back on your phone, and then restart the phone. That should fix it..

I thought you could only buy an iPhone if you signed up for a 2yr contract with AT&T. Is there a way to get around this, and then use the iActivate or am I missing something? Basically I'm wondering how you activate an iPhone without service if you (as far as I know) have to sign a contract to get the phone in the first place.

You can always reset your iPhone using iTunes. Just hook up the USB cable between your computer with iTunes and your iPhone and iTunes will start up and recognize the iPhone. It will then recognize there is a problem with the iPhone and offer to reset it.
I was able to get my virgin iPhone activated using iActivator. I had problems getting the error message that it was improperly paired. I got around this by resetting the iPhone (Menu and Sleep buttons) and then shutting the phone off and on. Eventually it paired and I completed the iActivator process and had a wonderful non-phone iPhone.
I then tried to install some music and movies and iTunes tried to install the new update v1.0.1 - completing all of the steps except the end when iTunes advised that it was unable to complete the update. I then reset the iPhone as described above and am back to my iPhone brick.
I have tried to reuse iActivator but am unsuccessful in getting it paired and I have tried everything. If anyone has any advice to get passed the pairing problem I would appreciate it.
In the end all this program does is allows the iPhone to be a fancy iPod with Wi-Fi capabilities - but NO phone service (and no fees AT&T). I do plan on signing up for AT&T service, but am not ready to do so for a few months when my Spring contract expires. So it would be ideal if I could play with the iPhone as an iPod and Wi-Fi Safari computer until then...
Hope this helps!

Does iActivator require you to have a valid, working (non-activated) AT&T sim in the phone? I've managed to lock my AT&T sim (stupid, I know) and obviously can't request a PUK as I'm in the UK and have only previously activated the phone via iActivator.
I'm fine at the moment but I'm wondering if I'll be able to do a firmware upgrade/restore/deactivate/reactivate using iActivator if the AT&T sim is not present in the phone. I've removed the AT&T sim and can sync etc with no problems.
Question remains: do I need the sim to use iActivator again should I need to? I can jailbreak but I'm not sure what happens if I deactivated and then tried to reactivate.

I just ordered the 4gb iphone. I'm planning on just using it as a ipod,wifi, etc...
few questions...do I need a sim card in order to activate it?
does all the features expect for phone work?
after the activation, Will I still be able to upgrade the firmwares in the future through itunes?

Is this the way to go about it if you already have a contract with AT&T and just want to put that sim card in the iPhone?
I am asking this because of the announcement this morning of O2 wining the iPhone in the UK and I already have a contract with them, this activation then would let me go on a cheaper tariff than the ones that O2 have come up with.
Thanks in advance.
