    Default Getting error 0xE8000051

    Hello folks!

    I managed to build myself a custom carrier bundle for Vodafone Germany on 3.0 ... here for reference.

    Unfortunately I'm not able to upload the file with iTunes. iTunes is up to date and carrier-testing is active so I can actually choose the file.

    No matter what I do, speaking of using different zip techniques, with or without symlink, zipping only the .bundle file, cp the zip file to an ipcc file, etc. ... nothing works. I mean everytime I try to upload the file with iTunes I get the error message 'An unknown error occurred (0xE8000051).'

    I tried reinstalling iTunes ... no change.

    I'm on a factory unlocked iPhone, so I don't need nor want to jailbreak. Is there another way to upload ipcc files (without jailbreaking) or a solution for this error?

    Thank you all for your help. I'm on a MacBook running 10.5.7 by the way.

    Are you sure the plist file is valid?

    Did you enable the carrier development in iTunes?

    Hey, thanks for answering.

    Well, I used this

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE
    to get iTunes to consider ipcc files for updating. Is there more to do? carrier development?

    So I actually can choose my ipcc file in iTunes by alt-clicking 'Check for Updates' ... nevertheless iTunes won't upload the file to my iPhone. Always getting the same error.

    I think my plist is valid. I unpacked the 3.0 iPhone firmware, decrypted (thanks to vfdecrypt and iPhone Wiki) the ramdisk image and looked for original carrier bundles. I picked one and changed settings according to my carrier.
    How can I proof the plist files are valid? Theres a link to my ipcc file in the first post of this thread if somebody wants to check it out.

    Thanks again.

    When you use that command iTunes shouldn't run as it might overwrite that setting.

    You can try option clicking on the restore button and selecting the ipcc profile with that instead of the update button.

    You can try this ipcc profile even though it's very similar to yours. The carrier name might be wrong and you have to edit it.

    I had a similar problem with 2.0.1 firmware. It turned out the backup was hosed and I had restore it and set it up as a new iPhone.

    Thank you so much for your help so far N0B0DY.
    Unfortunately the ipcc file you provided doesn't work either ... i didn't even change or edit anything :-(

    I tried alt-clicking Restore as well ... same error.

    The funny thing is, I also tried uploading the ipcc file to my iPhone using my old WinXP machine running iTunes 8.2 beta 4 ... and even there i get the same f***ing error.

    Also no change after a fresh restore to 3.0.

    Now I'm out of ideas ... the structure of my ipcc file is the same as all the original ones, plists seem to be valid. What's wrong here? Why is it working with everybody else? Did all of you guys jailbreak? Nobody else got this error so far?

    About to restore my iPhone again ...

    Just checked my logs. This is what I get:

    27.06.09 00:40:40 [0x0-0x43043].com.apple.iTunes[602] MobileDevice: perform_command: There was an error communicating with the service agent: 0xe8000051
    Any idea what kind of service agent that would be?

    Connect the iPhone directly to your computer. Restart the computer if you haven't done it already, and update the system to 10.5.7 and iTunes to 8.2. If yoiu have done all that and you still get the same error go to this folder. ~/Library/iTunes/Device Support/ and delete the contents. Should be only one file. Restart computer and/or iTunes.

    If you still have the same problem try using a different cable/usb port.

    If this all fails you might want to restore and set it up as a new iphone.

    BTW to upload the IPCC file you don't have to have the phone in recovery/dfu mode. It should be on and connected to iTunes.

    I would guess the ipcc is just fu.... You knoe the ipcc - when unpacked - has to be a folder called "Payload", right? When you open the folder in Mac OS x it always adds an invisible file called .DS_Store. this is screwing up thigs often.

    The .DS_Store file doesn't do anything on the iPhone. I know it might be there but I used this IPCC and it worked just fine on my iPhone.
