Thread: iPhone downgrade reception

    Exclamation iPhone downgrade reception
    Hey guys, heres my story. So Wednesday AM I ran accross a video on youtube on how to install NES on my phone. One thing led to another and eventually I found myself at "" on my fone. I jailbroke my phone and the modding began. I installed all sorts of apps which made my phone the coolest around. All my friends were impressed and thought it was pretty awesome. One of my favorite apps was definitely launcher because I'm OCD about things being organized and even. I awoke this morning curious about installing an IM app and came across apollo. I installed BSD Subsystem and Apollo, but didn't really like apollo much. I uninstalled it and then went to remove BSD subsystem. I found out i could only "Reinstall" it and then did some research on how to remove it. I couldn't remove it and then my OCD kicked it. I decided i'd try and reinstall v1.1.1 and then reinstall my apps. What a bad choice I made. I installed v1.1.2 and then proceeded to downgrade to v1.1.1. I was successful but unfortunately my phone cannot connect to the AT&T network. On my phone it says "Searching for network" or something similar and then disappears and leaves me with no reception at all. In iTunes its showing my phone but under my phone number it says "N/A". I was wondering how to fix this because I re-upgraded to v1.1.2 and I get connected to the network almost immediately so I'm sure my phone is working almost normally. An ideas or links or guides that can help me? I'm sure this has been posted before and I do apologize for it. Thanks in advance !

    hey dude you pretty much have two choices now

    also before we start BDS Subsystem is necesary for a whole lot of things and makes your iPhone a whole lot better so I would leave that installed...

    Option 1: Use a wifi connection to go to Once jailbroken, install OktoPrep. Proceed to upgrade to 1.1.2 through iTunes. Once activated on 1.1.2, use the Dev Team 1.1.2 Jailbreak (just google it). And WALA! you're jailbroken on 1.1.2!

    Option 2: Downgrade through iBrickr to 1.0.2. Proceed to virginize your iPhone. (pain in the @sssss). Upgrade to 1.1.1. Use You can now stay on 1.1.1 (your phone, etc will be working) or install OktoPrep and upgrade to 1.1.2 (if you do this 1.1.2 is much less likely to cause some rare cases Option 1 will cause problems and force you to do it again)

    More information on both methods can be found here! At my guide

    Hm...I'll try the first option because virginizing my iPhone seems like a brutal pain. If I jailbreak with v 1.1.2 will I still be able to use the same apps as v1.1.1? and just out of curiosity, what does BDS subsystem do? I've been hearing its useful but I also heard it drains the iPhone's battery at a fast rate than normal.
