    Default Cant Downgrade need help

    Hi everyone ive been stuck since thursday please help..
    i tried downgrading using the following method but haven't succeeded I tried using independence and it doesnt recogdnize the phone i am using a mac :


    1. First, download the iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw [3] from Apple. On a Mac, do not unzip the file, iTunes will do this for you in step 4.
    2. Then connect phone to dock, and hold down home button and power button for about 10 seconds or until the screen goes black.
    3. Now release the power button but continue holding the home button. After about 10 seconds the computer will detect the iPhone in restore mode, and iTunes should tell that the phone needs to be restored.
    4. Hold down SHIFT key (Windows) or Option/ALT-key (Mac) when clicking the Restore button, and select the file you downloaded in step 1.
    5. Let the restore complete and ignore the error at the end.
    6. Now your phone should show the "Connect to iTunes" screen with the yellow triangle.
    7. Run AppTap to jailbreak your phone - it will restore it to a working 1.0.2 firmware it even though you will get an error at the end. Just dismiss the error and quit the installer.
    8. Run AppTap again to actually install the installer.app. It should successfully complete.
    9. AT&T Users: Reset your iPhone before you start using your phone again. Failure to do so may result in you being charged for your "free services."

    take the sim out after apptap and then run pacay to activate. the downgrade will not get a sim other than a att sim working again, and even att sims can have the incorrect sim error sometimes. The downgrade only gets you a working ipod not phone. You will have to wait till a new solution comes out to get a working phone again

    He needs to use INdependence. He also needs to read the STICKY posts and the related stuff, as annoying and time consuming this may be.
    If we have time to write it, he needs to have the time to read it.

    independence isn't avaliabe on pc, so apptap and pacay are the only real options if he can't use a mac. I agree everbody needs to read more of the threads before they ask their questions, all your questions have answers in other threads
