    Use iTunes to restore iOS 4.1 like you did before. You are finished

    thanks

    i did:

    Force power-off the phone (Power + Home buttons for 6-8 seconds)
    A high-low sound should be heard on the computer.

    Use redsn0w 0.9.6rc8, select iOS 4.1 firmware, select one (1) option: 'enter pwnd-DFU mode'
    .... follow the count-down timer carefully and enter pwnd-DFU mode

    Restore 4.1 with iTunes
    If iTunes Error 10xx, use TU 'exit recovery'

    But now it is in "emergency calls mode"... can I take it to apple like that?

    Yes you could take it to Apple like that. It's not jailbroken at that point.

    Thank you for all your help!!!! Thanks!

    one final question: After jailbreakn' I remember I checked the iPhone settings/general/about, and strangely there was no information about Modem Firmware. It is supposed to say the number of the baseband, right? my iPhone said nothing about it. That might be the problem?

    Yes, it should've been all the way down on the bottom. Ensure that you've scrolled down to the bottom of the screen.

    I am doing it right now.
    No IMEI
    No ICCID
    No Modem Firmware

    Strangely there is "No Wi-Fi" I mean, Wi-Fi seems to be gone!

    Seems like hardware failure to me. Confirm, Mes? Or could it be software.

    I think that's why it's rebooting all the time...

    what can I do then?

    If someone could confirm my deduction that it is indeed a hardware failure (I feel strongly about it but not 100%) then ... it would be time for a new phone. Unless you know how to fix the baseband chip. Or replace the motherboard. It's likely on of the two or both if no modem fw, IMEI, or ICCID show up.

    Looks like it to me. Little can be done w/o an IMEI, etc.

    That's the thing ... there's a reason why the IMEI isn't showing. Some sort of hardware failure. That means the hardware has to be fixed (whatever hardware piece has failed that is)

    The IMEI is stored in a non-writeable area. It can't change.
    If missing, it's because something is wrong with the hardware.

    Thank you guys!!

    I think the only thing I can do now is taking it to the Apple store.
    Warranty is unlikely to work, but they might know how to replace the IMEI.

    If warranty covers it they'd probably replace the phone.
