    If the phone has merely been hacked (ie, activated and/or jailbroken), then yes. In fact, restoring any firmware version that is either the same or later will produce a standard configuration.

    On the other hand, if you've unlocked your iPhone (ie, to use non-AT&T SIM cards), you've modified things in the baseband (modem) firmware and EEPROM in the process, which cannot be restored through normal means.

    Nope, you actually should use FW 1.0.2, this is the latest software unlock "supporting" FW. Nothing kills the iPhone with FW 1.0.2 or lower.

    Upgrading up to v1.0.2 won't harm the iPhone, but you won't be returned to a completely "virgin" configuration either if you've used iUnlock or AnySIM.

    iUnlock/AnySIM modify things in the seczone that are not restored as part of a normal firmware restore, and this seems the most likely reason why the v1.1.1 firmware upgrades cause problems. Even rewriting the "stock" v1.0.2 baseband firmware back into an iUnlocked iPhone will result in the iPhone being rendered non-functional for any SIM card (even the original AT&T one).

    In this case, the problem is not the v1.0.2 firmware, but rather the default (unpatched) modem firmware being restored. However, at least with FW 1.0.2 or below, you can re-jailbreak the iPhone and re-run the iUnlock tool to return the phone to an unlocked state. This is not possible with v1.1.1.

    I'm sorry if this has been previously answered, but any word on when a tool would be available to restore the iPhone to the previous state w/o rendering it non-functional?
