    If you had multiple Apple stores you could take one to one and one to another.... Just a thought.

    Those links you posted of other people's problems aren't the same as yours, so it's not even worth the time to read them.
    Hi. Yes, sure it would look suspicious. that's why I'll take only one, a friend of mine who bought me the other will take that one (of course we won't show at the same time ). The thing is that there must be a solution to this. I'm not in the states now, that's another reason why I dont take them to the apple store yet. By the end of the week, if I'm unable tu fix them, then I'll take them there. But I'm sure there must be a solution to this, I mean, I'm pretty sure this happened because of the hack, so there must be a way to solve this, so it doesn't happens again.

    Default Have you taken the sim out first?

    Take the sim out, reboot, then plug it in.

    Oh, and before you plug it in, do a restart of the iphone as someone mentioned earlier for 25 seconds.

    Try that, and post your results.

    Hope it works,

    Tigres

    Default Find some inner CALM quick!

    Buddy, I don't think any of us know why you would take a chance on 2 phones, having said that, take a second to breathe. I know your kinda scared and it's warranted. Let's get back to basics...

    If you used the Hack from DVD john, neither phone is activated right?

    I know you did a lot, some of it needs to be done in an order. Did you download the DMG to the desktop?

    One guy was kind enough to post a great article that explains how to specify a restore image from your desktop, (ON MACS, you can right click on restore on the iPhone page in iTunes and choose the image you downloaded to the desktop) CAN YOU DO THAT?

    You what to restore... Why, did you just feel like doing this before activating? or do you not plan to activate?

    Most likely, you CAN exchange your phone, not much of a loss to apple because even if they figure out what you did, Apple can defiantly fix the SOFTWARE. if they won't do that you can activate the phone with ATT so they will have a reason to fix it and then cancel within 14 days and be where you were before the hack.

    We are all here to help, and we would rather you fix this so that we know we could fix it too, so until then CALM THE F**k down.

    P.S.- I have a couple windows friends that have trouble restoring their ipods on Windows, so they come over and always fix quickly on a mac. So find a mac buddy with iTunes. Or plug your phone in at a store, they already have the cradles most likely.

    Hi. I used the hack from dvd jon, so I would say they were activated, but not activated with AT&T

    By DMG I thik you refer to the file itunes use to restore the phone. When I first tried to restore the phone, it downloaded the file via itunes. I've also downloaded it to my desktop (iPhone1,1_1.0_1A543a_Restore)

    On windows xp, if I right click on the restore button on itunes, happens the same as if I click on it with the left button, it doesn't gives me the option to set the restore path or anything like it.

    I dont quite understand this. I bypass the activation via dvd jon's hack, but never activated it with at&t. I wanted to try the phone functions. then I want it to return it as it camed form factory, so when the full unlock hack appears (hope soon ) I had a fresh start phone. That's when hell got loose, never had succes in restoring it.

    You right man. It's just frustrating for me, too much money involed. Sorry if I annoyed anyone with this subject, I'll chill I'll try tomorrow on a friend's mac to see if I get any results.

    Thanks charlie!

    hi mate,

    one last thing to try. try it on a mac. that way you're 100% in apple world. if it's going to work anywhere, it's going to work there.

    failing that, yeah bite the bullet and take it back. fuck what they think. just deny the hack if they accuse you. no need to worry, as long as you don't back down.

    cheers mate!

    Talking Solved

    Hi. I solved my issue. Used a friend's mac as people recomend me to, and phones were restored. Crappy XP

    Thanks everyone for your help. Hope that when someone has the same problem as I did, ends up here and see the solution.

    What I concluded is: Don't get paranoid, get a mac (at least when it comes to apple gadgets )

    Good luck!

    Good to know that.
    BTW, I did a restore to my iphone (use DVD John's hack activated) on XP with no problem. The iphone freeze a lot after 3 days for some reason, that's why I restore it.
    But the restore went smoothly on XP. I guess you probably have something wrong with your XP or iTune on your PC.

    Once you restore you need to rehack or re-activate with ATT correct?
