    Default Help: Accidently restore to OTB 1.1.2 firmware

    So, this morning, I unlocked from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2 using anysim. Everything went well.

    Then, when I tried to install some 3rd part apps using installer, it has this error, saying full disk space.

    So, I follow this guide ( http://www.iphonestalk.com/how-to-fi...y-iphone-apps/ ), and typed a few commands using terminal. After I restarted the iPhone, all the icons disappeared. Since I have no idea on what to do, I am really a newbie. I went and restore the iPhone to 1.1.2 otb firmware. Rightnow, I cannot do anything, all I have is an emergency screen...

    So, I was wondering...is it possible to unlock my iPhone again? If my iPhone has a serial number (4th and 5th digit lower than 45), will this even help at all? Or are there any solutions?

    I felt so stupid, unlocked, then relocked it again.. =(. Thanks, any opinions are welcome, thanks!

    That's okay. Upgrading to 1.1.2 will not upgrade your bootloader, so your phone is still unlockable (provided that you indeed had the 3.9 bootloader - since you unlocked it previously, you must have had it or an older bootloader).

    You should add http://i.unlock.no to your Installer sources, install the Baseband Downgrader in Unlocking Tools, and then restore to 1.1.1 in iTunes. From there, you can jailbreak with jailbreakme.com and install anySIM via the Installer to re-unlock your phone.

    Thanks ^

    The problem is that right now, after I restore the iPhone.. I cannot access to anything. I have my tmobile sim card in the iPhone, but when I connect to iTunes, it says that I need a valid simcard to activiate the iPhone, something like that.. =/ (even when I try to hold the home + sleep button...) Also, when I turn on my iPhone...all I see is an emergency screen. I cant even access to the spring board, and go to installer. Basically, I unlocked to 1.1.2, then went to itunes and clicked restore again...So, I think I am left with a OTB 1.1.2 and cannot access to anything, not even itunes..=/

    Right now, after trying everything, I have finally gotten the iPhone to go to the springboard menu. So, right now, I have installer. However, after lauching anySIM, it says that I was not able to unlock...=

    In Installer, add i.unlock.no to your sources, and go to Unlocking Tools and install The Virginizer.

    Then, put the phone into recovery mode and restore to 1.1.1. If iTunes gives you the invalid SIM message after you've held the power and home buttons, then you're not in recovery mode. Here's a foolproof way to get into recovery mode:

    Keep iTunes open.

    Open the clock on your computer (I assume you use a Mac? Windows has this too though). Push the power and home buttons on the iPhone. When 10 seconds have passed, stop holding the power button (but hold the home button). iTunes should pop up a message about detecting an iPhone in recovery mode and allow you to restore the phone.

    To make sure, is it possible to put the phone into recovery mode when my spring board is activiated by *#307#, prefs:, jailbreakme.com?
    By the way, I am on 1.1.1, so I just follow your instructions, right? Also, after I installed the virginizer, do I connect the iPhone into the computer, THEN hold the power/home buttons? OR hold the power/home buttons first, THEN connect the iPhone into the computer(connect the usb)?

    Thanks~

    By the way, I really want to make this clear for the people who helped me, So, what I basically did was, unlocked from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2 using anySIM. Later, I accidentally clicked restore, and I think the firmware was back to 1.1.2(locked firm). Then I try to restore, using the 1.1.1 3A109a. Got the error 1050. Then use*#307#, safari method + app snapp to get my phone to the the spring board. Now, I am have no idea which mode I am in, and the iPhone still has the Globe picture. I try running both anySIM 1.1, AND anySIM 1.2.1u to unlock my phone. However, no luck, as it shuts down after the copying process in anySIM. I really want my iPhone to work again.

    I have no idea whether the restore changed the phone's baseband or other things..=(

    Also, since I am in 1.1.1 3A109a(maybe 1.1.1 3A109a recovery mode as I have a globe on my iPhone..), if I was to restore 1.1.1, do I use this file call iPhone1,1_1.1.1_3A109a_Restore?

    Thanks a lot for all the help, and I appreciate

    Thanks aCujo, I used virginizer, then do I restore the iPhone with 1.1.1 3A109a file?
    Also, do I need to download anything like Oktoprep before the restore, and how about after restoring, what should I do? And do I HAVE to put it into restore mode (home + sleep buttons)? Or if there is a restore button already, then do I connect to the iPhone and click that button right away as shown here ( http://i219.photobucket.com/albums/c...screenshot.jpg )?


    UPDATE:

    unfortunately, after I restored with 1.1.1 firmware in (home + sleep buttons), I didnt get the 1050 error. Instead, iTune has this message saying that the restore was sucessful... Also, All I got the activated screen ,saying incorrect sim =(, please help me >.< Then it sends me to the spring board, however, my baseband firmware went to 4.01.1.3G =( It keeps saying the incorrect sim whenever I turn on the iPhone..

    Basically, from 04.02.13_G to 03.14.08_G, then to 4.01.13_G Did I actually bricked my iPhone, i hope not...

    thanks

    update: fixed, thanks
