Thread: Invalid iPhone

  1. #1
    Default Invalid iPhone
    I have just tried to plug an iphone in to activate it. It just comes up in itunes that they are having trouble activating the phone and to call Apple.

    So I ran it through firmware umbrella and got the following output:

    07/14/2010 12:28:08.738 The Firmware Umbrella - v4.00.80 by semaphore

    07/14/2010 12:28:08.738 Device Detected
    Device: INVALID X.X.X (XXXX)
    Model: MC131ZP/A
    Name: iPhone

    The device comes up invalid x.x.x (xxxx) What does this mean?The model number seems to be a Hong Kong phone (Although Im in the UK),this should not affect it though.

    Has anyone had this error before or know how to fix it.

    By your model number, i assume your phone is factory unlocked so activating requirement is odd.

    I ran into this problem with the 3G and just had to hacktivate in the end.

    How did you come across this phone?

    Just an eBay buy 150 so thought it was worth a shot, I didn't know it was a Hong Kong model but thought this would be ok when I unlock it anyway.

    How do you Hacktivate the phone? It is stuck in the connect to itunes mode.

    Thanks again!

    Sounds odd, you could upgrade to 4.0 but you risk the possibility of it not being factory unlocked! If it is a locked phone then it wouldn't be useable until new JB's come out.

    It is a 3GS right?
