Thread: Unlocking EMPTY iPhone???

  1. #1
    Default Unlocking EMPTY iPhone???
    As weird as the title sounds, I'm stuck in a strange situation.
    My iphone used to have iOS 4.1 with baseband 2.10.04. There is no unlock yet for tht as far as I knw. Now I erased all the data accidentally, so its in recovery mode now. I want to unlock my phone so cannot really restore to iOS 4.2 with itunes and restore. WHat should I do now? Is it possible now to go back to iOS 4.1 with baseband (5.3....!) which is unlockable now?

    plzz help, thank you

    No, it is not possible.Once your baseband is updated , it cannot go down.

    Just try and do the shift + restore to 4.1 ipsw

    Not for iphone 4, it will be awhile.

    IOS 4.2.1 is already released.

    Are you at 4.1 now ?. If you are in recovery, you can shift + restore to 4.1 if apple is still signing 4.1. If not, then you have to use shsh blogs to restore to 4.1 if you have one.

    I just checked , Apple has stopped signing 4.1 firmware.

    Run tiny umbrella, have your iphone plug in > iphone has to be bootable otherwise you have to retrieve your ECID and input it manually > Click save shsh.

    Let us know what shsh blogs you have.

    To retrieve your ECID manually :
    Download USBview
    Run it with your iphone either in Recovery or DFU mode.
    Under Option : Check config decriptor
    Hit F5 to refresh
    Scroll down to Apple connected device
    Highlight it and on the right side , you will find your 16 digits ECID

    Now with your ECID, you can input it into Tiny Umbrella under manual ECID
