[1.1.2 OTB] No BL and no BB
I tried the h/w unlock on my OTB 1.1.2 phone some weeks back but it failed. I don't think my phone has a BL or BB. I tried pinging the BB using bbupdater but it did not respond.
Manged to restore to 1.0.2 and jailbreak with brickr :-) but brickr won't install apps. It will copy files too and from the iPhone though.
I figured that I could copy by hand the BSD subsystem and VT-Term. It took hours, but VT-Term never started in the end.
Where can i go from here?
Do a restore 'shift-click restore' straight to 1.1.3. this should solve your BB and BL issues. From there JB with ziphone 2.4 selecting 'jailbreak, unlock, activate and verbose boot'.

Can you try to downgrade your bootloader with ziphone and check if itll work...
i have the same problem?(1.1.2 OTB) i have a bricked BL and BB , the baseband was erased mistakenly while i was virginizing and i tried to run ziphone and it bricked my BL , so i am now stuck with the apple logo and have no wifi or access to 1.0.2 .....
and the restoring on itunes takes about 30-40 min !!!
can anyone confirm that upgrading it to 1.1.3 solves the BB and BL issue
can anyone tell me what to do ....... PLZ
if the BB is broken a restore to 1.1.3 should repair it but u cant repair a broken BL by restoring or upgrading cause a restore to 1.1.3 only writes the new BB 188.8.131.52_G but never writes a BL.
My BB and BL (or BL only, i dont really know) are broken after an unsuccessful HW unlock and a restore to whatever FW doesnt show any effect because the chip is dead w/o BL.
try a restore to 1.1.3 and see what happens...if your wifi, imei, etc comes back you are a lucky man. then use ziphone again.
but be careful....dont use the "ziphone-do-everything-for-me"-thing because this forces a BL downgrade as you can read in another thread. ziphoneGUI1.0 worked perfectly with a friends iphone.
if u have no luck swap the commboard or take it to apple for a replacement iphone.
hope u get ur iphone back to life

Dear gstar ,
I will try to restore to 1.1.3 and tell you what happens .... but my concerns are if it is still a brick , can i take to apple ? cause i think unlocking the iphone puts you out of warranty ..... but my question is can i take to apple and have them fix it and charge me for that ?
another thing on my mind , is there a hardware way to restore the BL ..... i am willing to take my chances cause i am hitting a dead end here ......
another question , how can i confirm that my BL is bricked ? i assumed that cause when i restore to 1.0.2 ( which take more than 40 min on itunes ) and tries to activate it with ibrickr i got the red display for more than 30 min !!! but the restore gives me the 1015 error .........

I tried restoring to 1.1.3 and all version but no luck. Always get the message "need repair" a few seconds after startup.
Will the comm board carry the BL? how likely is it that this will fix the problem?
Recap... i attempted a h/w unlock... erased the BL but the reflash of the BL failed.
hi all ,
I tried to finally fixed my iPhone , i don't know if it will work for you , but here is what i did :
I put my phone in a restore mode ( not dfu , i don't know if there will be a difference )
I clicked restore on itunes (7.6.x) .... restore and update
After it finished i had BB ( IMEI and ICCID )
I then used ZiPhone v2.4 to unlock , jailbreak , activate and downgrade BL to 3.9
Note : first i used ziphone v2.2 , it downgraded the BL and messed the BB and i had an error , so i had to restore again using iTunes , then used ziphone v2.4 and it worked fine..............
thanks gstar , and hope you all can fix your phones

Well I managed to get my hands on a another comboard. I used ziphone3 to jailbrake is with the working board. then put BSD, term-vt100 and the suid fix, along with the iphone.unlock files.
I followed everything and still no worky. SO its jailbroken with 1.1.3 (otb 1.1.2).
know of a way to fix this if you have it jailbroken?
When I try to do a test point, stays spamming AT then a list of attempts after I'm done with test point (sleep 30; iunew. I hold it for a minute) with now nothing indicating that its finished.
and BTW, how do you get 1.0.2 on a otb 1.1.2 phone?
where did you get the replacement comm board from Ibroken?
