[1.1.2 OTB][H/W]With what did you scratch the A17?plz help,i'm in middle of HW unlock
No matter what I try, i just can't get the testpoint to work !!! I don't know whats wrong !!
I'm thinking this is because one of three explanations:
1) I cut the A17 and bricked my iPhone
2) The testpoint is not working because I'm not reaching the trace correctly
3) Something wrong with iunew !!
My questions are:
1) Did you scratch the A17, or you just used a needle directly ?
2) If you scratched it, how did you do it ? I can barely see it and I'm worried that I might cut it (can it get cut easily?)
3) Did you run iunew on 1.1.1 or 1.0.2 ?
a sewing pin. if you arent confident..i suggest you stop. bad things can happen!
8 GB iPhone 1.1.4 unlocked T-mobile USA.
I used a needle/sewing pin to just take away a tiny bit of material not much bigger than the pin itself. Make sure you don't push too hard. I'd say you'd have to do something utterly stupid to ruin the track so don't get too disheartened.
Just one note...
I have not tried to H/W unlock yet (i don't think I will), but I know a thing or two of circuits...
If you break the A17 you don't Brick the Iphone permanently...
You can correct any broken copper based circuit with a kit sold in some stores...
guys thanks very much for calming me down, i still can't get it to work and i think i might corrupted the A17, i'm gonna try again couple of time but with no pressure, if it doesn't work, i'm gonna restore and close..
my question here, can i restore to 1.1.2 and see if i get wi-fi back? this way i can know if the baseband is damage or not
DirectBrasil, could you tell me the name of this kit ? i suppose i can detach the commboard and go to some circuit repairing store and tell them to fix the trace ?
Also, you guys, did you follow the hw unlock guide on 1.1.1 or 1.0.2

you may break the line scratching it!!!!
I did a slight scratch.. if you put a direct light on it and look at it with a magnifier and scratch you'll see a shiny spot. What I recommend is.. don't try to testpoint too many times in the same spot.. try once here.. once there .. the a17 line can be touched in different spots so don't push it too hard on a spot..
Agree on njkim, from what i've heard you don't have to scratch the A17... But...
Here's the thing, I live in Brazil and here we can buy a printed circuit board kit in a electronics store, but i have found this:
Nevertheless, I really don't think you have broken the A17 line... That's hard to do...
Are You sure you're doing all the prior steps ? Have you unloaded the CommCenter ? You must run iunew at the same time you're connecting the testpoints, how are you doing this ? Are you using a delay ?
Best of luck !
