    Default [0049 IMEI] How to know for sure whether it is repairable?

    I have a phone with the 0049 IMEI issue and no seczone backup. I have heard some people have been able to recover from this issue and some haven't.

    Is there a way to find out whether my phone is in a state that's repairable?

    Before spending more time on it and trying more methods, I wonder if I can just call it quits if I can figure out if my iPhone is damaged beyone repair.

    Can I check the seczone for signs of irreparable damage?

    Thanks in advance.

    bro:

    if your bb is 3.14, use iUnlock slow 20min method. Works perfect
    if your bb is 4.02, use BB downgrader from installer tool, restore and use again iUnlock 20min to ensure ur baseband is repaired correctly
    if your bb is the new 4.xx, nothing to do

    The baseband is 3.14. I ran iUnlock and it ran successfully, but the IMEI still shows 0049.

    You might want to try the "Virginize" section of http://iphone.unlock.no/. It helped me fix my 0049+ issue after my iPhone had been unlocked on 1.0.2 with old iUnlock and then updated to 1.1.1

    Hope this helps

    I had a 1.0.2 iPhone Jailbroken/Activated and unlocked with old anySIM 1.0.2, updated to 1.1.1, bricked, and 0049+ IMEI. I thought it was fubar.

    I now have a very happy friend in Germany with a 1.1.1 Jailbroken/Activated/Unlocked iPhone on o2 network in Germany.

    I have also tried the Virginize method from iphone.unlock.no, but still no luck.

    You are not good enough to permanently break the baseband.

    Virginize the baseband, run anySIM 1.02, then virginize again.

    this is a hit & miss process.
    Virginize / Revirgin may or may not fix the problem.

    Is there a way to know if my phone is one of those phones that can't currently be repaired? Maybe by checking the seczone or something?

    If I know, I can stop trying

    Also, can I patch it up enough to get warranty service?

    I don't think so. You can stop trying now & send me the phone so I can try - I'm curious as hell....
