Thread: Clarification on where I stand, ty in advance.

    Thumbs up [Solved] Clarification on where I stand.

    I've searched the forums for a couple hours without a clear answer.

    Network: (blank)
    Version: 1.0.2(1C28)
    Model: MA501
    Modem Firmware: 03.14.08_G

    I haven't activate the iPhone. I finally sold my Blackberry and want to play it safe and follow the rules from here on out.

    I have run a terminal script allowing me to use everything but:
    1) youtub 2) text 3) phone features

    As i understand this is called "Faked Activation."

    I can run the "glorified" iPod with or without the simcard. I get an invalid SimCard error from time to time. I have a functional ATT sim from my blackberry and the sim that came with the 1.0.2 4gb iPhone.

    I have not touched the update button in itunes or updated leopard or tiger since I ran the script.
    (I have a couple leopard machines, and my work machine is tiger.)

    I do -not- want to do any hacks, third party apps, or tricks from here on out... too squeamish at this point.

    Am I safe to update to current?

    If not:

    Do I need to:
    Restore normally through itunes then continue?
    "Fix" the baseband?
    "Virginalize" the sucker?
    "Restore" from 1.0.2 back to 1.0.2 then upgrade?

    Or since I did this myself bite the bullet and see what happens after I upgrade?

    Thanks guys!
    Sorry my forum searching skills are lacking today!

    Viginizeing is to fix baseband. You haven't touched the baseband, you haven't unlocked the phone. You can't downgrade 1.0.2 FROM 1.0.2, you already have it. i don't know if anyone uses the fake activation because you can unlock it.

    Thank You!

    1. Downloaded "iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw" from this website
    2. "Option-Clicked" the "Restore" button in "iTunes 7.5 (19)"
    3. Selected the "iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw" on my "Desktop"
    4. The iPhone went back to requesting to be plugged in for activation
    5. After I put the iPhone back in the cradle without updating past 1.0.2 I synced my Contacts, music, photo's, videos, and podcasts
    6. This morning at ~12:45 (-7 GMT) I "clicked" the "update" button and let iTunes do the rest for 1.1.2

    Results as of 13:05 (-7 GMT):
    Everything is 5x5 and in the green!

    Rock on Mac-Hack community! Even Apple admits you guys have helped the market share!

    Damn shareholders!

    (Wait till the tablet's out, Steve and Cuper. Legal will back off hard core then.)
