    Unhappy HELP!1st Gen iPhone stuck in recovy mode+locked!

    Greetings to all gurus,

    Trying to upgrade my 1st Generation iPhone from FW 2.2.1 to FW 3.0 with Pwnagetool, I got stuck real bad in Recovery mode.

    I made the probably fatal mistake of letting iTunes update the iPhone with the standard (vs custom built) FW 3.0, which now means that not only am I still stuck (recovery mode icon on display) but also phone is locked (iTunes does not support the SIM etc..).

    I can get a step further by plugging in an original AT&T SIM, which will then pass the connection to the iTunes Store, but that is not the direction I am interested in going...

    Is there any way to restore FW / get my iPhone back at this point?

    Thanks!

    Now that you have upgraded, your baseband will be too. There might be ways that you can get back to 2.2.1, but you will always be on that baseband. Isn't redsn0w / ultrasn0w .. whichever tool (lost track now) out already to unlock and jailbreak? Take a look at the dev team site.

    Unfortunately, redsn0w 0.7 can not get the iPhone to reboot - I guess we are back to part of the problem being not being able to leave the Recovery mode.

    Any help and pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Try to put your phone in restore mode to make iTunes able to restore it. You've to do it pushing home + power during 25 seconds.

    Connect iPhone and your PC/Mac, make sure itunes 8.2 is installed but not running (quit it). Shut down the iPhone by holding Home and Start/Sleep untill the screen goes black - let go of both buttons.

    Put the iPhone into DFU mode:

    1. Hold Home and Start/Sleep for 10 seconds (count 100, 200, 300,...)
    2. Let go of Start/Sleep but keep holding Home - keep holding...
    3. after like 15-20 seconds iTunes will start up - keep holding Home
    4. iTunes will "see" an iPhone in recovery mode
    5. Let go of Home and hit "Restore"

    This will restore your iPhone to stock Apple firmware 3.0. After that is done, use the tutorial:

    iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your iPhone 2G on OS 3.0 Using RedSn0w (Mac)

    or

    iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your iPhone 2G on OS 3.0 Using PwnageTool (Mac)

    and you will be set.

    Unhappy

    Volkpost hello and thanks for your input.

    Unfortunately, no love: though getting it in DFU mode 'seems' to work just fine (black screen), Redsnow can not get the iPhone to reboot: the device just stays with a black screen.

    I am at a loss on what alternatives are left - am I really left with a bricked iPhone?

    Thanks for your time

    When seeing the black screen, did you fire up iTunes 8.2 first and restored to Apple stock firmware 3.0?

    Absolutely !

    I even trashed mobiledevice.framework to get rid of error 1604, and fired up iTunes 'manually' as it did not start up automatically.

    I just can't seem to get rif of the recovery mode... even with an ATT Sim, I can get to the point of 'emergency calls only', but recovery screen doesn't go away.

    For reference, am using:
    MacOS 10.5.7 and iTunes 8.2 (23)

    Strange, I do have the same setup, redsnow is working perfect for me. It is a bit tricky to get into DFU mode when using redsn0w though, but...

    Did you try to use PwnageTool 3. This should do the job since you are on a Mac, check here:
