    Default Determining iPhone firmware without any hacking, how?

    Hello,

    well I'd like to make sure that once my iPhone arrives, that everything is as it ought to be and that there are no surprises (like Apple shipping a new iPhone which I ordered last thursday with a new firmware that is not yet announced etc). To do so before I go to the restore to 1.1.1, jailbreak etc I'd like to see it in the phone without any hacking that could be version specific.

    As far as I have read the forums and understood so far the only option close to what I'd like to know is dialing *3001#12345# and getting into the field test mode where I can see the modem firmware.

    I just wanted to make sure if the modem firmware and the iPhone firmware are a 1-1 match so far (I guess a FW 1.1.3 could come out without a new modem firmware?)

    I do admit that I have been reading the forum for about 2 weeks, have kept mostly silent as I only ordered my iPhone last week and I have written in a few places where the questions have been general Unix/hacking/RSA related, I think I have a pretty good grasp on how to unlock the OTB 1.1.2 with turbosim (also ordered) and the steps before, but I'd like to avoid any surprises of for example indeed finding the firmware 1.1.3 on the phone once I get it (it hasn't even reached the US address I ordered it to yet, so it is one of the latest batches and it did come from China so who know, could have updates if Apple planned to release any beginning of Dec).

    Thanks in advance...

    Hi toruonu,

    ok here goes in the simple as I understand it (I'm a noob but have unlocked a 1.1.1 and jailbroken a 1.1.2 in the last week and a half)

    How to check your firmware:
    turn on iphone with upper right button
    slide to make emergency call
    (now dial) *#307# and "Call"
    it rings - use upper right button next to numbers to backup and erase it all then press 0 and then "Call"
    press "answer"
    now press "Hold"
    press "decline"
    touch "contacts" (centre button on bottom)
    add contact (press + in upper right corner)
    touch "add new URL"
    type in - prefs:
    touch "save" (upper right corner)
    no need to add name just touch "save" (upper right corner again)
    then it will show you the contact info you just saved - touch "prefs:"
    this will take you to "settings screen" - touch "General" (near bottom of the screen)
    touch "about" (top of the screen)
    7th row down is the version which will show you the current firmware like 1.1.2(3B48b)



    Hope this helps!

    Nice... and indeed it does not require anything version specific hacking to be done. I'll try that once the phone arrives. Thanks.

    Didn't I say that in the first post And didn't I say that you see only the modem firmware, not the iPhone firmware. And the 2. post showed very nicely how you see the firmware version.

    I see. Didn't read it completely.
    However, khrys' post told you to enter prefs://11. Note that "//11" is not needed. Just prefs: will do the trick.

    NotFound - thanx for the tip about the "prefs:" yes I tried it your way and it still works just as good with less typing. Sorry, I'm a noob here and I've only been using these forums and had any experience with iphones for the last 2 weeks.

    I've been using the longer url to get to the settings menu which I found off another guide and since it worked I never bothered to experiment to see if anything shorter worked. I've seen others use //1F as well after the prefs: guess it doesn't matter what comes after prefs: .


    I'll edit the above post
