    lol. ok fair enough.

    here is what my phone used to be ..
    phone specs.
    Network = Rogers
    Version = 2.2.1(5h11)
    carrier = Rogers 2.9
    model = MB629C
    modem firmware = 02.30.03



    now it is doesnt have the phone part of the settings screen. nor does it have the 3g icon up by the signal strength. and when i attempt a call it fails.

    i ran through the pwnagetool2.2dmg and used this link as my referance.
    Pwnage 2.x Guide 3G - ModMyi - Wiki

    i seleceted iphone 3g from the list of options and had the check mark just like the wizzard suggested.


    it did its thing, restarted. resynced with itunes and it setup my exchange server for me, pop3 servers i checked, installed my appstore purchases and imported my music

    but no phone.

    Well, that guide is for 2.2....which is fine EXCEPT you need to make sure you didnt accidentally load firmware 2.2 on your phone.

    Check under settings. Cause if you did...your baseband no longer matches. You will need to redo everything, but make sure you use firmware 2.2.1 since thats what you had before.

    that is most likley what happened.

    under settings it doesnt tell me anywhere what fw it is anymore. however itunes tells me its 2.2 and that 2.2.1 is available. I assume i dont want to do that from itunes, but rather i need a pwnage restre.ipsw that is for 2.2.1. correct?

    and if so, where would i find such a beast.

    i dont mind at all doing it over, its a good learning tool.

    just found the 2.2.1 in the downloads section .... ugh. i am a noob. lmao

    ok i let itunes upgrade me to 2.2.1, now when i start pwnagetool and get to the part where i need to select an ipsw file, i select the new 2.2.1 file i downloaded and it tells me wrong firmware bundle selected.

    any thoughts?

    no it doesnt. i restored it back to defaults via itunes. and it all worked. phone activated, and i called my office to test.

    i re ran pwnagetool 2.2.5 and used iphone2.2.15h11.ipsw to create my custom ipsw file.

    restored the phone using that file, and again. no phone. cant make calls. it fails.

    the words "rogers" is normally in the top left, and taht is missing now as well.

    i just read ...

    Problem: No Service After Pwning iPhone 3G
    Fix: Repwn your phone, make sure Activate iPhone is not selected.

    in a faq. going to try it that way and see waht happens.
