    Now, HOW did you get to this state?? Please detail EXACTLY what you did before you go the bootloader is too old message??

    You have somehow managed to corrupt the bootloader just enough that the phone is still functional but not completly.

    Now, as a fix for the problem i want you to try the following:

    Firstly, download the following file,

    Now, on your iPhone, upload this file and bbupdater to the /usr/bin folder.

    Now, SSH into the iPhone and run the following commands:

    launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
    cd /usr/bin
    chmod +x bbupdater
    bbupdater -l *.fls

    That should reflash your bootloader to 3.9 and you should then be able to reflash the baseband firmware!!

    The thing is, if we can figure out HOW you did what you did, we may be able to do the same to the OTB 1.1.2 phones and downgrade the bootloaders on them!!

    Doesn't work.
    I tryed 10 times.
    It's do not upgrading the bootloader
    It says the same like above:
    after i entering: bbupdater -l *.fls
    The answer is : it just retrys 1, 2, 3, 4 all the way to 10 tries to reset and ends with Baseband bootloader too old.... 1.8 or older

    What to do?

    bbupdater = "baseband" updater. It does not affect the Bootloader.

    Stop wasting your time.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    My iPhone is REPAIR NEEDED.
    I"m trying to fix it with this guide
    But tryes 10 times, and it says that bootloader is too old 1.8 or older.
    I've tryed to update it as explained above, but it still says the same ERROR.

    Do you mean, the iPhone is absolutly gone>???

    The phone was upgraded to 1.1.2.
    And downgraded to 1.0.2 for BRICKING
    Any suggestion.
