    Default [1.0.2] iLiberty+ failed to JB, stuck at BSD Root error after DFU

    Well, the title pretty much says it all. I was trying to jailbreak my 1.0.2 BL3.9 using the latest version of iLiberty+ (mac) and it just hung. I had to force quit. After reboot a whole bunch of text scrolled across the screeen and then I got the dreaded BSD root: md0... error. I tried a regular restore. That didn't work, same problem. I tried it again. No luck. I tried two DFU restores (black screen) and it is still doing it. I was trying to jailbreak so I could virginize and upgrade since I originally unlocked with AnySIM 1.0.1 (or .2, but what's the difference in this case).

    Am I screwed?

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks,
    fr0

    Update: I was able to use iLiberty+ to get the phone to boot again by taking it out of recovery mode. I then used a friends 10.4 computer to activate. To do that I had to downgrade iTunes to 7.4.2 and get iNdependence 1.2.5. The key was to replace the updated MobileFramwork so the iTunes installer could overwrite it with the old one. Now I am back up and running. Next step is to virginize and upgrade. I think I will wait for a day or two to let my stomach settle

    Whoa! Thanks man! I was able to use iLiberty+ to kick it out of restore mode, and that let me boot normally. I'm now back at the activation screen and iTunes recognizes it (although it complains about my t-mobile SIM) and iNdependence can't activate it. I get the message "Error writing modified Services.plist" when I press activate. I'm running 10.5.2 with iTunes 7.6.1. Any advice? I want to activate and jailbreak so I can virginize and upgrade to 1.1.4.

    Make sure you do a DFU restore to 1.0.2
    then you can use iLiberty+ for mac (iLibertyX) to jailbreak + activate the phone
