    Default Restore error
    Just got my iphone today, however when I try and restore the firmware it comes up with an error saying it could not restore.

    The restore screen doesnt have a yellow triangle. It has a pictures of a usb lead and itunes symbol

    any suggestions.

    At the moment it's not possible to jailbreak phones with 1.1.1 firmware, and thus not possible to unlock them. If you have 1.1.1 firmware and want to activate and jailbreak it in order to install third party applications, here is how:

    1. Download the iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw from Apple.
    2. Connect phone to dock, and hold down home button and power button for about 10 seconds until phone turns off.
    3. When it turns off, release the power button, but continue holding the home button. After about 10 seconds the computer will detect the iphone in restore mode, and itunes should tell that the phone needs to be restored.
    4. Hold down SHIFT-key (Windows) or OPTION/ALT-key (Mac) when clicking the Restore button, and select the file you downloaded previously.
    5. Let the restore complete and ignore the error at the end. Now your phone should show a rectangle, but don't worry about it.
    6. Run AppTap (or iNdependence) to jailbreak your phone - it will fix it even though you get errors.

    The OS firmware is now 1.0.2. But in order to unlock it, you need to downgrade the baseband firmware also, which does not seem to be possible at the moment. A few people claim it worked for them though, so if you want to try on your own risk, click here to show the instructions:

    Baseband downgrade instructions (apparently not working)

    * Use Installer application to install Terminal and BSD Subsystem (or BinKit) on your phone
    * Download the 03.14.08 baseband firmware (files renamed to 314)
    * Upload the three files to /usr/bin/ (using iBrickr for instance).
    * From the Terminal application on your phone run the following commands:
    Code:
    cd /usr/bin
    chmod +x bbupdater
    launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    bbupdater -f 314.fls -e 314.eep
    launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    * If you get error, try restarting your phone, and then try again.
    * When done, restarting your phone, and go to Settings → General → Modem Firmware to confirm it's 03.14.08_G
    * If it was 03.14.08_G, You can proceed to unlock your phone

    If you see a "Yellow Triangle" in recovery mode then it's v1.0.2
    If you see a white usb ipod data cable and a iTunes logo in recovery mode then it's v1.1.1
