Unable to downgrade from 1.1.1 -> 1.0.2
Really looking for some help here.
I've followed all of the proper restore/downgrade instructions, but I cannot get installer.app to complete the copy of the 1.0.2 files as it always hangs at the same point.
Just to confirm, these are the steps I've taken:
1) Boot iphone in restore mode [DONE]
2) In iTunes, browse for the restore file iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw [DONE]
3) The phone will restore, but it will fail. [DONE - *but I get Error Msg Code (1)]
4) Run Nullriver's AppTapp...it should fail, but this is ok. [HANGS - I must terminate the apptapp installer process]
Here is the point at which the apptapp installer.app hangs every time (i've copied the stdout of a terminal execution of the apptapp installer.app):
* iPhoneComm v2.0
Using 009-7698-4.dmg as the Ramdisk Image.
Using kernelcache.release.s5l8900xrb as the Kernel Cache.
Stage 0: 0 Killing iTunes...
Stage 0: 1 Looking for iPhone...
ConnectRecoveryCallback: Bad Stage: 0
Stage 0: 2 Recovering...
Stage 0: 3 Attempting to boot iPhone in normal mode...
Stage 1: 4 Sending preliminary files...
Stage 1: 5 Entering recovery mode...
Stage 1: 6 Killing iTunes...
iTunes is not running when it hangs on this Stage 1:6 command. I have tried a dozen different sequences to get past this command, but it never works. I cannot get the installer to copy the 1.0.2 files and fail like it's supposed to.
Has anyone else experienced this? What am I missing here? I do not have a SW unlocked iPhone. I simply had 3rd party apps on my legit AT&T 1.0.2 iPhone, which I upgraded to 1.1.1 (like an idiot).
I desperately want apps back, but I cant get this downgrade to work for the life of me!!!
Please, any help would be appreciated!
