Virginizing your modified baseband iphone
Been following some posts about virginizing modified iPhones who's basebands have been modified..........I must admit to having an itchy finger to updating my iPhone too 1.1.1.............but alas I wait.........
Until I saw this......
Key point: RELOADING FROM ITUNES WILL NOT VIRGINIZE YOUR PHONE and BBUPDATE will not restore your baseband to a VIRGIN state!
bbupdater -e ICE03.14.08_G.eep and bbupdater -f ICE03.14.08_G.fls will NOT COMPLETELY RE-FLASH YOUR BASEBAND!!! Contrary to popular opinion, your phone is NOT virgin when you flash with bbupdater and then do a iTunes restore. There is a 10 byte checksum difference in the phones memory between what Apple loads and what bbupdater flashes. Only iTunes can accurately re-flash the baseband. When you do the restore in iTunes, you want iTunes to think your phone has suffered a fatal blow – so unless you actually see the reloading firmware window (and you will notice, it takes about 10 minutes) then you have only reloaded the flash memory. To force a firmware reload (guaranteed) in iTunes you must first completely corrupt and disable your baseband firmware. Easiest way to do this is to reverse flash the baseband...
bbupdater -f *.eep (mash round peg into square hole)
bbupdater -e *.fls (mash square peg into round hole)
then reboot into restore mode, fire up iTunes and plug it in
... the reverse flash will mess things up so badly that iTunes does a COMPLETE and REAL virginization of the iPhone. Accept no substitute! It will not reset your unlock attempts - but it fixes the problem with the byte offsets in the loaded / modified / bbupdated firmware. bbupdate will re-flash your firmware but it won't make your phone a virgin again – only iTunes can, and only when iTunes thinks your phone is so screwed up that it reloads the bios, the complete baseband AND all flash memory.
Can anyone verify this methodolgy? Is this true or even possible? Admittedly I'm a little scared to try it myself............
I would rather wait for dev team to come up with their own app, rather than trying to use itunes.
I think the problem of virginizing is exactly that! Bringing it back to factory and untouched state!
I guess in my view.......if we can forcibly get Apple to do it for us.........why try to fix it when they'll do it themselves!!
Anyway, going to have a go at it.........probably tomorrow........I have a modified baseband iphone which I did myself..........so I'm a bit familiar with the ins and outs of the iPhone.
I just hope it works!!
