Thread: just got my iphone

  1. #1
    Default just got my iphone
    and I did a stupid move by updating it to 3.1 straight from itunes.

    I guess im screwed but is there any slight chance of me restoring it to 3.0?

    Unless you jailbroke first and put your ECID on file in Cydia then you're stuck.

    supposedly a hole in 3.1 they're just not letting it out untill they have made sure its completely possible to do carrier unlock.
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    You're not screwed, just use an official carrier. You might have to pay an extra $5 over whatever budget plan you have now, but you can go cry to mommy and see if she'll help pay your bill!
    To live, you have to lie

    Hahaha um this might be against forum rules but I wanna help you out.

    You can replace your phone through Apple pretty easily as they are having a lot of battery issues. Simply call into Apple tech support and claim you're having a lot of problems with your battery. Say you get about 4 hours battery life on standby and it gets really hot whle in a call. say you have tried turning off push, brightnes, mail fetch and everything. say you've already restored to 3.1 and set up as new phone.
    finally say you want to get it replaced asap because of these problems and ask them to put a note in your account so the genius at the apple store knows to give you a replacement.

    Get your replacement and jailbreak it (Hopefully it's on 3.0 or 3.0.1).

    Get your ECID on file!
