Thread: Recovery mode. the point?

  1. #1
    Default Recovery mode. the point?
    I noticed some guides tell you to go to recovery mode some do not (when down grading from 1.1.2 OTB to 1.1.1)

    What is the reason for recovery mode?

    Because you can only downgrade the firmware in itunes if it is in recovery mode

    Hello Redcard,
    I'm in Australia and my iphone which was unlocked and I believe jailbreaked has just frozen and says, Please Connect to itunes. I've been using it for four months and it had 1.0.1 or 1.0.2 on it. Apologies for my lack of knowledge on the phone as I bought it unlocked and then came here for the jailbreaking. I want to know if I should go to itunes and hold down the alt key when I hit restore. Then grab the same firmware (that I've downloaded from here) and reinstall. I've read about virginizing my iphone but don't understand that. Do I need to do that as well. Also will all the information on my iphone be erased? I'd really appreciate any guidance or suggestions. Thanks,
