    Default [Problem] [Solved] 1st Gen iPhone bricked, I tried everything!

    Hi
    I'm literally going crazy out of my mind right now...Long story short,I used to own an iphone before this gift and have tried Ziphone a bazillion times (straight from "itunes to usb emergency call screen" and no matter how many times i relocked it,it worked like a charm every single time i used it) but this time i truthfully believe i screwed up badly!!!!I've been given a 1st generation unlocked phone as a gift and tried to delete my friends contacts and what not and got a little impatient and tried the in- phone reset setting yet instantly realized after initiating it that if it rebooted my iphone would brick!so tried to close the phone in the middle of the reset process and the phone turned off and back on and all that there was on the screen was the USB TO ITUNES without the emergency call or whatever(which ive never seen cuz im used to the one with the emergency call thing).Before anything i decided to Ziphone it because it seemed to have worked before and i wasn't in the mood to research much(even though i've been working on this for literally 12 hours... :s) but obviously after booting Ziphone and trying to "unlock,activate n jailbreak" my iphone wasn't being recognized by Ziphone..so i decided ,stupid as it may seem,to connect to itunes and restore via the restore option on itunes...i was then asked to update firmware which i did and dloaded it and restored it...after the restore the phone went back to its normalish "emergency call usb to itunes screen with a lock on top of the screen"...so as of then i had a bricked phone with 2.2 firmware...so now that the emergency call screen came back on i decided to try Ziphone again but right after clicking the start unlocking button ,the phone went back to simply "the usb to itunes w/o emergency call" and automatically booted itunes with "itunes has noticed yor iphone is in restore mode bla bla" and basically im back where i started...

    i tried pwn tooling it..yet my custom ipsw caused an error on itunes and didnt restore
    i tried manually restoring it with 1.0.2 = error
    1.1.1 = error
    1.1.3 = error
    1.1.4 = error
    and finally 2.0 , 2.1 and obviously 2.2 worked but it only gave me back emergency call mode and reset to the other screen with usb to itunes automatically every time i tried Ziphone it...
    anyways im going absolutely crazy right now and really think that i screwed up badly and that my iphone is permanently bricked..but there must be someone who can help me....PLLLEAASSSE ANYONE IM IN DESPERATE NEED OF HELP!!!!!!
    is there any way to make it work again???!!!
    ill do anything,try anything!!
    THANKS AGAIN!!
    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL!!!

    Stop messing with previous firmwares and restore to 2.2 then use quickpwn to jailbreak and unlock. www.iclarifed.com can give you any tutorial you may need and links for downloads for the various programs.

    Hi thx for the reply!!!

    i followed the steps word for word and step by step yet 2 things happened which weren't shown in the procedure...

    1) in the tutorial (http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1842), STEP 8 shows how the computer automatically opens the file to restore which it didn't yet let me continue

    2)STEP 13 the loading was stuck without progress and the iphone shut down and the following message popped up on itunes...

    "an ipod has been detected,but it could not be identified properly.Please disconnect and reconnect the ipod,then try again.an unknown error has occurred (2001)"

    any thought????

    Did you download the 2.2 firmware from the link it gives you at the top of the page? If not do that first, download to your desktop or wherever and step 8 should pick up the firmware. Just out of curiosity with all your downgrading and upgrading you never used a ipod touch or iphone 3g firmware did you?

    i redid it and it picked up the reboot file the second time around yet my iphone shut down ONCE AGAIN and my itunes popped up with that darn error msg previously mentioned below AGAIN.... and to answer your question,ive never downloaded ipod touch or 3g firmware..i was careful not to..and btw after reading many forums and wtvr,i came across something about the late 2008 macbooks having problems handling dfu mode or wtvr yet i red that it wasn't much of a problem for most ppl..could this be why im getting the error?? im using a macbook air right now...i even tried dloading quickpwn on pc but it wont run..lol pretty lucky huh??

    Ya, I have a new unibody macbook and it doesn't let you do dfu mode. I believe there is a fix for it in a thread in this forum somewhere but have never tried it. I just use my pc with vista on it everytime I have to use quickpwn (which you would have to go to the windows quickpwn tutorial to download the windows version of quickpwn).

    Or get a powered usb hub.

    Try this to bring your iphone back to life

    1. Downgrade to 1.1.4
    2. And then Downgrade your baseband

    3. And then go up to 2.2

    or

    Good luck
