    Guys, I'm in the same case OTB 1.0.2 unlocked with an older anysim...
    I've been off the scene for 2 days. Now I come back and want to update to 1.1.4
    And I wanted to do the exact same procedure that was described in the first post.
    Will putting the iphone in DFU before my restore to 1.1.4 exempt me of the unspecified itunes error?
    What would be the best procedure? Ziphone or iPlus?
    I'm quite familiar with ziPhone but have no idea about iplus, what would be the best tool?

    Hey. I don't know what DFU is so I can't help you. With a few bumps I figured it out with the method I described. I did have to put 1.1.1 on before 1.1.4 but I think it was a unique case. For some reason my phone got stuck in restore mode and wouldn't accept 1.1.4. When it finally came out I put 1.1.1 then the new one on. I haven't heard of anyone else having to do that. Also, When 1.1.4 was on, iTunes wouldn't let me go into restore it wanted me to register. So I put the phone into restore which I knew would give me the features in iTunes I needed to force 1.1.4 without activating first. Just power down iPhone by holding top button and use the slider. Then hold the home button, place phone in your dock and let go once you see the phone say Please Connect to iTunes. Then you can restore as normal.

    After reading a TON on Ziphone or iPlus I went with iPlus. Its not much harder at all and works like a charm. ZiPhone seems to have a much higher chance for causing problems. I didn't read one post of a person unhappy with iPlus. Seriously. And ZiPhone puts a bootloader that, as of now, cannot be upgraded. iPlus puts a specially modified bootloader that can be upgraded, no problem. Those are 2 very big pluses for iPlus. I would go for that, you wont be sorry. Everything works perfectly and I believe my phone works smoother and even better than before. Let me know if you have any questions or problems and I'd be happy to help. Good luck and happy hacking!!!

    Either way you restore to 1.1.4 is ok just as long as you have a clean phone. Iplus is the best tool ( see sticky in software unlock fourm) as ziphone downgrades your bootloader to a un upgardeable state iplus makes it so that you may upgarade, there is guide at iclarafied.com if the sticky is not enough

    There are two types of dfu mode one where it shows the cable and cd and the dfu mode where you hold the on/off button with the home button till the screen goes black after that hold just the home button till iTunes says its in dfu mode

    so DFU is a term meaning to put the iPhone into restore mode? If I understand what you are saying.

    How to DFU:
    - run itunes
    - connect iphone
    - hold power+home at the same time
    - iphone will go black.
    - start counting 1-10
    - let go power and continue holding home (you want to let go of the power button within 10 sec or BEFORE the apple logo appears again).
    If you miss it , start over again
    - your phone will be in DFU mode and itunes will detect it (screen is black)
    - restore your firmware

    How to put in restore mode:

    - same as aboe but you hold the home button until the apple appears then you let go the home button (screen shows cable+CD)

    Here, there is a pretty big difference between DFU and restore.
    Ziphone has a 1-click option to put it in either DFU or "regular restore". In DFU, the screen is black and itunes forces you to restore.
    This thread says it much better:
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=27348
    So what do you say? does the error described in the thread correspond to the one you got?

    you can use what ever you feel comfortable with to put phone in DFU mode. The steps I listed above should work. You just have to time it right to let go the home button. It's not that hard once you try it a couple of times. Best yet, you don't need to run any tools to put in DFU.

    I didn't see your message when I posted
    So you do recommend DFU?
