Thread: 300MB problem on 1.0.2

  1. #1
    Default 300MB problem on 1.0.2

    I am an iPhone newbie here. I bought an unlocked iPhone via internet and all I know is that it is 1.0.2. I accidentally clicked "Pre-1.1.1 Update" on Independence 1.2.5.

    After this I knew from a friend that it is still impossible for iPhones that is unlocked by anySIM that is older than 1.1. I don't know whether my iPhone is unlocked by 1.1 or not so I stopped the process while iTunes is downloading the 1.1.1 firmware.

    My iPhone is still functional but now I have only 300MB of space on my iPhone. I am still using 1.0.2 and I don't know how to solve this problem.

    I searched almost everywhere on the internet and only found the solve for 1.1.1 but not 1.0.2.

    Can anyone please help me? :'(
    Thanks a lot

    Hi there,

    I had the same problem with my 1.1.1 iPhone. However, independence has a special tool for this bug, so just google: independence 300mb. (I hope you have a mac, not a pc...)

    Good luck!

    sorry, didn't see you were using 1.0.2. Why don't you just upgrade to 1.1.1, unlock it and use the tool...

    I too am having this problem with the 300mb limit on an iphone with 1.0.2. I was going to upgrade to 1.1.1 but itunes did not recognise it as a new phone like I think it should have done, so I cancelled that, reinstalled and thought it was fixed. Until this problem with iTunes.

    Please help, I'm out of my depth and have no idea what to do

    I also had the 300mb problem, I went to change to var.root/media old but cyberduck came up with an error about the file not existing; it does this whenever I do anything in my iPhone. Now the root folder has a red stop sign next to it and the folder can no longer be opened.

    What can I do?


    EDIT: reopened cyberduck and it worked just fine, I have now restored the 1.0.2 software and in the process of unlocking, thanks very much!

    if you're running os x,

    It's from independence, and it should do the trick.
