    Anyway, thanks for your post.

    BTW: chmod is not needed on the files in my archive - they are pre-chmod'ed correctly.
    I personally did the whole procedure on 1.0.2. And that is one of the things I would recommend you change on your guide to be honest. Id say if possible do it on 102. But if unable to, then 1.1.1 is fine.

    So since I was on 102, i obviously had to restore to 1.1.1, which after I did, everything ran perfectly now. Even if I did the HW unlock on 111, I still would of restored to 111 simply because I prefer to have a fresh restore of the version. The same reason you recommend to restore after running bb downgrader, and ect. Things just worth smoother, and itll cost you what, 5-10mins extra of your time to ensure a perfect working phone?
    Ive done it on 2phones just this weekend, and everything has gone smoothly with your downgrade pack. 1 of which I downloaded off installer, and 1 which I downloaded from your zip pack, casue apparently someone brought me a phone that looked like they tried to do the "software" portion of this HW unlock, but no HW, so it just erased everything, and gave the repair needed error.

    Ya I know I dont need to chmod, but i wouldnt be surprised if for some reason, they are using someone elses pack, and even though if they cant figure out that if it says permission failed they need to type chmod in, i just though id make it easier lol.

    But ya, thanks for your help man, def has made my life easier on alot of stuff.

    Hi darkcloudy,

    How did you downgrade to 1.0.2. I stucked on "waiting for iphone".

    Quote Originally Posted by darkcloudy View Post

    1st, I suggest doing this unlock on 1.0.2.
    If you have No IMEI, No Firmware, No WiFi, that means you probably erased your baseband, then some reason turned off the phone.

    I fixed someones phone today that had 1.1.2 OTB, was giving me the Repair Needed, No IMEI, No WiFi, ect.

    I downgraded to 1.0.2. I jailbroke/activated it with iBrickr and activate.bat.

    I then installed the all the required stuff iBrickr makes you do to install Applications. Once I was done with that, I installed BSD Subsystem and Mobile Terminal vt100 from my PXL files.

    I then uploaded the "bootloader downgrade zip pack" I had downloaded from the official i.unlock.no thread. I uploaded all the files into my /usr/bin folder.

    I went to Terminal vt100 on my phone and typed:
    launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist (capitalization does matter, so just do it.)
    If it doesnt say anything, then it should have worked.

    Then type:
    chmod +x bbupdater
    bbupdater -v
    2 things can happen. 1) it will ask if the com is being run by another program. or 2) it will ping the baseband and work (if it says it cannot find the baseband, thats fine, that means you already erased the baseband.)

    If it says the com is being run by another program, turn off your phone. Start it back up, and then try bbupdater -v again. If it still says its being run by another program you need to manually delete the file from your phone. I was having this problem where even by unloading it, it still wasnt working properly, and that caused ienew, iunew, and bbupdater -f and -e not to work properly.
    To delete the file, the easiest way is to simply run iDemocracy with your phone plugged into the comp, click File Browser, and just go to the directory (System/Library/LaunchDaemons) and delete the file (com.apple.CommCenter.plist). Once you delete the file. Restart your phone, go to Terminal, and try bbupdater -v again. It should work now.

    From there on is sorta self explained on the other guides. Type in terminal
    chmod +x ienew
    chmod +x iunew
    ienew
    ienew will then run, may take a few minutes, if it says anything like already being erased, thats fine whatever.

    Now its time for the testpoints/iunew. Type in:
    sleep 20; iunew
    This will give you 20seconds to setup the test points before iunew runs. Obviously if you are fast enough, can save yourself the time sitting there and change the number to 10 or something.
    If it says something like "please connect test points" you didnt get the test points correctly. So do it again.
    If you were having the hang at "Spamming AT" that should be fixed now because of you deleting the com file and erasing the baseband.
    It show now ask you to hit any key and enter to download the nor file.
    hit any key and hit enter.
    It will say "downloading nor", just let it sit there, it sometimes can take up to 10mins from what Ive seen. Dont rush it. Just let it go.

    After its done you will need to upload the baseband back onto the file.
    So if you downloaded the bootloader downgrade package like i said, you will type this.

    bbupdater -f 111.fls -e 111.eep
    This will take awhile, maybe another 10mins. Let it sit for atleast 10mins. If nothing looks like anything is happening, meaning it just froze after you hit enter and nothing else happened underneath it; just let it sit there for 5-10mins, then if still nothing, hit the home button. For some reason this happened to me, and after i hit the home button after a few seconds, it refreshed itself and everything seemed fine. It of course took me home, and then i went back to terminal, typed in
    bbupdater -v
    and now it was able to successfully ping my baseband and tell me I had 04.01 firmware and 3.9bootloader.

    This is just a rough post of what everyother guide tells you to do. The main importance is if you are having the "did you erase the flash first?" or "is this com being used by another program?" you need to delete the com.apple.CommCenter.plist file, and restart your phone. That solved all my problems.

    I did recieve and read your emails (thanks for sending me the correct output!). I'm sorry i haven't replied yet, but my "iphone folder" in my inbox gets flooded by messages from "stupid people" so i sort of forgot your message - but i had flagged it and was going to reply it... But i'll reply you here instead so others can read.

    Actually, i think i already had done what you suggested before you sent me the mail, you probably didn't see this post: http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showpost...&postcount=198

    Anyway, i did an update to it now - and included the 1.1.1 baseband firmware since i have obtained it now.

    I'll include the links here:

    Bootloader Downgrader PXL
    PXL package is untested - does it install ok in iBrickr? The files inside are OK, just not sure installation in ibrickr works.

    Bootloader Downgrader ZIP
    This is the exact same file downloaded when installing Bootloader Downgrade package in Installer.

    Thank you very much GeeZuZz!

    Everything worked, your tutorials are simply the best.

    Did three hardware unlocks already, all of the phones are working fine.

    Cheers!

    I just went from 1.1.2 to 1.1.1 to 1.0.2. I cant honestly remember if I did DFU mode or not, but try both. Try restarting your comp, ect. Ive done 3 HW unlocks just this weekend, all on 102. Iam doing 1 tomorrow as well, I will see exactly what I have to do to get it down to 102. Like Ive said before, you have to experiemtn with these phones. They are very funny, keep trying stuff that you wouldnt think mattered.

    Nothing you can do, simple as that. By upgrading to 113 you screwed up your chances of being able to hardware unlock it. For now atleast.

    first of all sorry for my bad english,
    i fallow your tutorial and when i tap bbupdater -v i had something like:
    # bbupdater -v
    Resetting target...
    pinging the baseband...
    baseband unresponsive to pinging
    Done
    #
    #

    i try ienew and had something like this:
    # ienew
    Resetting the Baseband ... Done
    Opened: /dev/tty..baseband
    iEraser for 112OTB: tool by geohot
    Waiting for data...

    and it still remain here for hours
    and if i try iunew
    remain in "Spamming AT"

    Hi,
    I have exactly the same problem that you described. Before I have downgraded bootloader on two iphones and unlocked them, but today found that procedure changed a little, so I followed new one - bbupdater -f 111.fls -e 111.eep. After applying anySIM I have inserted my SIM card, phone recognized it... but had no signal.
    I tapped into preferences to see cariers... but it crashed.

    Restore to 1.1.1. didn't help at all.
    Right now I am trying to restore to 1.1.2 and then do a downgrade of baseband.

    Also I found that on the locked phone instead of bars you see "no service"... on my locked phone I see empty bars.
