Thread: what the hell did i do? stuck @ "Slide for emergency"

    Default what the hell did i do? stuck @ "Slide for emergency"
    thanks for stopping by,

    bought an unlocked iphone operating on 1.1.3 and youtube wasn't it to work by searching for a fix...the fix suggested that i replace 3 files in the Lockdown directory..and delete the file that's in activation_records. I used iphonebrowser and did all that.

    got youtube to work....a few minutes later i am stuck at the "Slide for emergency" screen. can't access the phone anymore.

    I connect to iTunes and it prompts me to upgrade to 1.1.4....i tried to do it, thinking it might fix the problem, yet i am getting an error during the installation period.

    my question is this, what THE HELL did i do? and how can i fix it?

    Put it into DFU mode, hit restore bringing it to 1.1.4 and then use winpwn to reunlock

    It sounds like what you did was replace the lockdown file which you had unlocked with one that was locked. I would be weary of any tutorials asking you to replace files on your phone using iPhoneBrowser or SSH unless you know with a total absolution what you are doing.

    Otherwise, just like the case with YouTube, you can usually find fixes for common problems in Installer by first making sure you have the community sources installed then looking under the Tweaks or System directories.

    This is going to sound really stupid but you listed:

    You dont mean use all them right???

    I have a MAC and PC so whatever is possible.
    I have had a 1.1.4 for a few months now.
    I ALWAYS used ZiPhone but I have been having nothing but problems this time.

    I own Intelliscreen and KATE and when I install both KATE does not show up in settings.

    Other than that I am worried because ZiPhone seems to be taking longer and longer to work these days.
    I got a could not find RAM disk and that scared me.

    What is the best way to jailbreak unlock and active these days...
    I would also like to have the installer installed too.

    If you have a Mac use the pwnage tool.

    I had the exact same problem.

    Download ZiPhone, and click "Activate".

    It will put back the necessary files and boot you iphone into Normal mode.

    Do not use Ziphone for anything other than "Activate".
