yes, pxl is fine. thanks a lot. after installing there is a new folder called /usr/bin/bbtools with the needed files in it. i also checked the permissions with squid. everything ok. easy to handle. but anyway i still get the "waiting for data" message with ienew and with iunew the "spamming at, waiting for a response"

After kick out of DFU mode by ibrickr, phone shows "repair needed" and no imei etc. Since I can't jailbreak it under 1.1.1 without baseband. The only way is to restore it to 1.0.2. But I tried all versions of itunes, each time created a new windows user. It always stuck on endless "waiting for iPhone". I have tried to restore it from 1.1.1->1.0.2, 1.1.2->1.0.2 and 1.1.3->1.0.2. None of them works.
I even decrypted 1.0.2 firmwire, re-encrypted it by 1.1.1 key and packaged it to 1.1.1 ipsw file to restore. It past "waiting for iPhone" stage. However, it can't pass validation stage. I believe there are digital signature in the shorter dmg file which prevents from forging.
all went ok till here with testpoint
iunew and the message
if it worked, enjoy your unlocked iPhone!!!
now the next stage load baseband
bbupdater -f 111.fls -e 111.eep this when ever i run say error fls can't open
any idea please what else have to do to install bbupdater stage if i restart what happen without installing i try bbupdater -f 111.fls -e 111.eep and this not installing all time error comeing what shoud i do
So I came accross my first "Waiting for iPhone" problem that I could not fix. I tried it on different comptuers, different iTunes versions. I just could not get it down to 1.0.2. This was a week 51 phone. I have succcessfully done hardware unlocks on (1) week 44 (1) week 46 (2) week 48 iPhones. All 1.1.2 OTB, all able to be downgraded to 1.0.2. So Iam not sure what to say about getting to 1.0.2.
I did however do the HW unlock on 1.1.1. You just have to be EXTREMMMMMELY careful not to mess anything up. Simply because your WiFi will be gone. Do not under any cirumstance restart your phone after running ienew. Test to make sure your CommCenter has been unloaded before running ienew. Because you may have to either unload it/restart your phone or remove it/restart your phone. To check it, simply just hit "bbupdater -v" and if it gives you the, is it being run by another program error, then its obviously not unloaded.
I ran ienew, first time, got a bus error. So I closed terminal, then opened it again, did cd /usr/bin to make sure. Then tried ienew again. It worked this time. Then I ran iunew, got the test points on the first try. Downloading modified nor of course took forever (I'd say atleast 5minutes, just let it sit there do not do anything, obvioulsy have autolock on never.) The once iunew is done. Type
bbupdater -f 111.fls -e 111.eep
This process took almost 10minutes, so just let it sit there, dont rush it.
I do not recommend just upgrading/restoring once iunew is done, people seem to be having problems, and then theyre screwed cause they cant go down to 1.0.2 and have no WiFi. So just run the bbupdater files.
Ontop of that, once you get done running the bbupdater files, no matter what version you are on, i HIGHLY recommend restoring your iphone to 1.1.1, then starting over with whatever procedure you want to do, whether it be keeping it on 1.1.1, or oktoprep for 1.1.2.
Not sure what you mean "error fls cant open". Idk make sure you have the correct files on there. If possible upload them yourself. Did you download the bootloader downgrade from i.unlock.no repo? Or did you manually download the zip file from this thread and upload it yourself? If not thats the problem, If you did I'd still try and do it yourself again. Just dont restart, whatever you do, and dont just restore it 112.

You successfully did the Test points/iunew correct, and did ienew before that?
Finally I solved the problem thanks to the New and better 1.1.1 jailbreak method

So I have restored back to 112, downgraded to 111, and have jailbroken and unlocked it with Anysim 1.1. And IT IS WORKING!!!
Maybe the oktoprep didn't work for me because I had done a basedowngrade that didn't restore back when I had restored to 112.
Thanks to all!
I Have A Week 51 iPhone. I Was Well On My Way To Unlocking It When I Ran The Baseband Downgrader In Installer. Long Story Short I Am Now Stuck Back With The 1.1.3 Firmware As It Is All That I Can Load Onto The iPhone. Is There Anything I Can Do To Fix It? I Have Tried ibrickr, Various Versions Of itunes On Mac And XP, independence. There Are Only 2 Things I Have Been Able To Do, Get It Into Restore Mode And, Restore It With The Current 1.1.3 Firmware From Itunes. Please Help.
Hi there, same happens to me...

hi crzy_dmd! the same thing happend to me on my wifes phone. after the BL downgrade the WIFI signal is lousy. I can connect fine, when i am very close to my AP, but the connection drops when i am more than 3 meters away. GSM is fine.

so you had bad signal on 1.1.1 and 1.1.2. have you tried to go down to 1.0.2 yet?
the antenna cable runs indeed very close to the area, where you open the iphone, so there is a good chance that you (and me) have damaged it.
i found a pic of the antennas here hxxp://iphoneantenna.com/
