    Default Bootloader erased. How do I load 3.9 back on? Errors when I try.

    Hi folks. I'm stuck but I think I'm in a decent position to fix it. I have a UK iPhone which was 1.1.2 OTB with 4.6 bootloader. I did get 3.9 bootloader onto it once but I was never able to get an IMEI working, so I thought I'd try again. Now I don't have ANY bootloader.

    I have BSD Subsystem and Mobile Terminal installed on the phone. I have put the following files into a subdirectory of /usr/bin and made all the programs executable:

    BOOT03.01_M2S1.fls
    BOOT03.08_M3S1.fls
    BOOT03.09_M3S2.fls
    ICE04.01.13_G.eep
    ICE04.01.13_G.fls
    ICE04.02.13_G.eep
    ICE04.02.13_G.fls
    ICE04.03.13_G.eep
    ICE04.03.13_G.fls
    bbupdater
    ienew
    ieraser
    iunew
    nor
    secpack
    secpack31206.bin
    secpack31408.bin
    secpack40213.bin
    secpack40313.bin
    testcode.bb

    I can run ieraser sucessfully, and ienew sucessfully. I can even follow ienew with iunew sucessfully by making the testpoint. But I get errors with everything else. Obviously I can copy any of those secpack*.bin files over the 'secpack' file but I don't know which is the right one. I'm also unsure what 'nor' file I should have since I've seen different versions floating around of different sizes.

    I've tried ./bbupdater -l BOOT03.09_M4S2.fls because I thought that would install bootloader 3.9 again, but it ends saying "Error: Failed to download .FLS: Could not verify downloaded image."

    When I try ./bbupdater -e with a *.eep file I get "Error: Failed to download .EEP: Expected checksum x got y".

    Can't get anything to stick so my baseband and bootloader are always empty! Hope someone can suggest the magic combination.

    Whoops - absolutely typical. After sweating over this for a day or so I suddenly found the answer through desperation: oddly I worked after I ran ienew *twice* in succession. I have no idea why this would be. The first time I completed quickly (and requested the next step) but I just ran it again on a whim. This time it took much longer and clocked through a whole bunch of addresses. I guess it did a more thorough erasure. I don't really understand. But whatever - after that ienew ran and I am back on bootloader 3.9 again! Every time I think I've bricked my phone there's a way out...somewhere. Are these iPhones indestructible or what? I'll leave this thread incase someone else gets the same problem.
