iTunes problem (Probably easy solution)
I have an unlocked iPhone. I need to restore it. My issue is that, iTunes has detected the new 1.1.1 update. I already have the 1.0.2 downloaded in my computer somewhere. I turned my wifi off on my computer and attempted to restore the iPhone, but it wants me to connect to the internet and get the new update before I proceed. Is there anyway to get around this? Thanks alot.
If your'e using windows, hold shift while pressing restore, if you're using MAC hold command while clicking restore. Then select the 1.0.2 Restore file. If on mac its located in Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Update
STILL NEED HELP! Could you tell me where the restore file is located? Thanks so much!
Restore iPhone using specific firmware
(win and mac)
New iPhone firmware is coming, Apple is going to ‘destroy’ your iPhone if you’ve hacked for native applications or sim free programs. Here is a little tip you should do when new firmware is out, but you still want to restore it to the unlock-able version.
1. Turn off the automatic update from iTunes > Preferences, un-tick ‘check for updates automatically’ from General tab.
2. Backup your existing iPhone firmware. For Mac, it is usually at ‘~\Library\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates’. Copy the ‘iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw’ from the folder to somewhere else as backup, we recommend you to update the iPhone now before the new firmware released.
3. Restore your iPhone by press and hold ‘option’ key, then use the mouse to click ‘restore. You should now able to choose the backup iPhone firmware file ‘iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw’ we did in step 2.
no automatic update
1. Prevent automatic update from iTunes. From the iTunes, choose ‘Edit > Preferences’, un-tick automatic update.
2. Backup your iTunes firmware from ‘C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates’. Change the part [user name] to your Windows’ user name. Copy ‘iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw’ to somewhere else as backup. You need to restore your iPhone at least once, or otherwise nothing will be in there. We also recommend you to update 1.0.2 while new firmware is not released yet.
3. Restore your iPhone by press and hold ‘Shift’ key, than click ‘restore’ to select the file we copied in Step 2.
If you are lazy to find where is the iPhone firmware file, download it by clicking here.
