Thread: Reverting from 3.0 Beta to 2.2.1

  1. #1
    Default Reverting from 3.0 Beta to 2.2.1
    Ok... I screwed up.
    I got impatient and tried to install the 3.0 Beta firmware and now I can't use my phone because I'm not a part of Developer program.

    Does anyone have any idea on how I can revert my phone back to the old firmware?
    PLEASEEEE help!

    If you updated your baseband and there's no way to downgrade on either version of the iphone so you're stuck with a BRICK for 3 months until a new turboSIM comes out or an unlock is discovered.

    How could I tell if my baseband was updated?
    I haven't jailbroken my 3G before.
    I was using the 2.2.1 firmware straight from itunes.

    Does the 3.0 beta change the baseband of the iPhone 3G??

    Actually I made a dumb statement b/c there's no Pwnage Tool in existence to update your phone to 3.0 without a baseband update. [ Sorry to tell ya son... you jumped the gun and now you're S.O.L. You have no options.. you can't downgrade. If you go to settings > general > about > modem version it probably says 4.XX.XX. Whereas the current version is 2.30.03 on firmware 2.1.1.

    Why are you lying to him?

    Simply get a cracked version of the firmware available all around the net, and restore to that.

    YOU LIE!!! WHY DO YOU SIT THERE AND TYPE YOUR LIES!!!

    i updated like a fool to 3.0 and i had his problem... couldn't use it...

    long story short on OS X i got error 21 when trying to restore dfu mode and i got error 1604 from Windows XP/Vista/7... so i thought i was S.O.L.

    HERES HOW I FIXED MINE A DOWNGRADE FROM 3.0 TO 2.2.1

    pwnage tool on mac with a custom 2.2.1 firmware it generated in dfu mode it restored to 2.2.1 jailbroken and working... all the restoring took about 3 hours from my mistakes...

    one thing though is i lost my back ups to the phone but my texts and such i can live without as long as its not at the cost of my iPhone...

    So you can't restore without jailbreaking?
    I updated to 3.0 but I am part of the developer program so mine is working fine.
    Just want to know for future reference.
    Thanks.

    what if i have a factory unlocked 3g can u go to 3.0 and still be unlocked and activated.. i have my udid in dev program.

    furthermore, if want to revert back to 2.2.1 i understand that the baseband of 3.0 will remain, my second question is, if the 3.0 baseband is compatible with 2.2.1 firmware and i will still be unlocked?

    ps: factory unlocked 3g iphone
