    Default 2G iPhone unable to restore! error 23

    I have a 2G iPhone that is unable to be restored. Whenever I tried restoring in DFU mode, it will prompt error 23.

    When I do a fieldtest on the phone, the firmware is blank and only the LCD version serial is available.

    The phone 1st started with a corrupted baseband which rendered no wifi, carrier and bluetooth in 1.1.3.

    Afterwhich, I tried restoring the phone to 2.2, and that's where the problem started.

    Can anyone advice on what I can do to restore the phone?

    I tried restoring with 1.1.4 and below firmware with ver 7.5 iTunes, and it doesn't help either.

    IMEI: Unknown
    ICCID: Unknown
    iTunes was able to restore the software but failed to restore the firmware part.
    Baseband is missing

    TIA.

    GeoHotz should be running for Person of the Year!

    hi, kiphone never worked for me. (dont know why)
    i had a corrupted BB a month ago. fixed it with iLiberty...
    downgradeing bootloader to 3.9 (if you have 4.6), then reflash BaseBand.
    after the reflash i restored with original 2.2 firmware. repwned the phone and everything worked fine. if you having probs getting out of recoverymode i recommand iBrickr.
    <<<--- if you find this post usefull, give me a good reputation by clicking on the THUMP up symbol

    1.1.2 OTB
    Restore to 1.1.4
    BL 3.9FB
    BB 4.04

    If you know what you do an you like commandLine use iPhone-Tools from SoLaR
    If you dont know what you do use iPlus
    If you want to f**k up your Phone use ZiPhone
