    Default [1.1.4][bottom half screen busted] how to restore to factory defaults

    Fortunately (for me ) its not my iphone, its a friends one.

    Last sunday he woke up and when he wanted to use his phone, the bottom half of the screen was dead. Instead of calling/msming/whatever ME, who had unlocked his 1.1.4 otb phone with iliberty+ 2 or 3 weeks before, he asked another of his friends (the only excuse is that he lives near him, and i am like 55 km away ) for help... they restored the phone, and then j/a/u it with.... ZIPHONE !

    After that, they "returned it to factory defaults" with ziphone, cause the screen was still broken.

    He called me and i researched (here and on google) and found the "posible fix" of adding the sensibility option to the general tab (which was useless cause his phone was unable to slide to unlock or even accepting the first message you get when you restore to 113 or 114), but then i found out about changing the setting manually on the touch.plist, and tried numbres from 0 to 16 (default being 3.5), and then even -15, and the screeen never behaved in a diferent way, so... i have concluded that his only hope is to take it back to apple.

    we live in argentina, that wouldnt be an option for ME, but his parents will travel to USA in may, so he has a chance... exept... his iphone has 3.9 BL now :/

    CAN i put 4.6 back while using windows ? if not ,ill have to wait til i download a new leopard (last one got busted with sdk beta 3 + itune update and i dont want to isntall the same one), and investigate what can i do with pwnage (considering that the phone has no way of inputing commands that have their buttons on the bottom half of the screen).

    after all that text.. any help would be appreciated (by my friend )

    I doubt the people at the apple store will check the bootloader, and the only way to upgrade it from 3.9 to 4.6 is to pwn the phone and then download BootNeuter to do the upgrade. Bootneuter can be found on the iClarified repo i believe and you can read all about pwnage in the pwnage thread.... or follow the pwnage guide on the iClarified website.

    i have read a lot about pwnage, but since my leopard was busted i wanted to know if there was a windows solution that didnt involve using the iphone screen (i cant install bootneuter cause i cant even slide to unlock, and even if i could, with half the screen dead, i dont know if ill be able to use it )

    you don't need to pwn to use bootneuter, but u said the screen wont even respond so getting it on the iphone in the first place isn't much of an option. i say bring it back as is, or pwn it so it automatically runs bootneuter, then afterwards restore again to factory 1.1.4 and it should be back at complete factory settings.
