    Default Help needed - Problem with Virginize prior to upgrade to 2.0

    Hi I own a 1.02 OTB iPhone and over the months I've upgraded it version 1.3. I now would like to upgrade it to version 2.0 but thought it's best to re-verginize the phone prior to upgrade.

    I've been following the instructions in this link on Windows platform (iTune 7.5)http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=42046 however I have encountered some problems along the way and need assistance.

    To start after jailbreaking and activating the phone and uploading the Installer package using iLiberty the installer package icon does not appear on my spring board. I know the package is installed cause when I SSH into it I can see the Installer folder.
    Before restoring to 1.1.1 I used to have Spoof and Big BossPref running. So I'm not sure whether they would still be affecting the file system somehow. I've managed re-install Big BossRef hoping that the re-install will fix the problem but had no joy. [as suggested from this link: http://sleepers.net/news/2008/06/23/...s-173-update/].

    I've also checked to see whether the following code exists, but it I couldn't find any.

    “edit the /Applications/Installer.app/Info.plist and remove these 4 lines and save the file (I had replaced < with
    { so the code will show up. So, everywhere you see { think < ):
    {key}SBAppTags{/key}
    {array}
    {string}hidden{/string}
    {/array}{/code}


    So after several of hours of trying to look for a solution I decided to launch the Installer application from command prompt using WinSCP. The command I used was:
    su -s Installer
    from /Applications/Installer.app directory


    I then upgrade the Installer to version 3.0 and tried to install "The Verginizer". However immediately after pressing the install command I get an error on the screen "Main script execution failed".

    One other thing to mention, when I tried to Jailbreak the phone with iLiberty it initially didn't seem to work, so I tried the old *#307# method to install AppSnapp from jailbreakme.com. However many times I tried the application would not get installed from the server. To get iLberty working with the phone I used *#307# method to change the autolock to never and then iLiberty was able to jailbreak my phone.


    So can someone shed some light into my problem.

    - Could the reason why The Verginizer script would not execute to completion be related to why I could not see the icons for the Installer, i.e. could it be some write/execute access protection issue on the phone? any suggestion or solution?

    - Is there another method of Verginizing the phone without using the Installer, and will it resolve the current issues I'm having?

    - I don't want to risk upgrading to 2.0 until I resolve this issue, it's a bit strange why it's happening now as in the past I have been able to jailbreak downgrade and upgrade the phone before.

    To note, my IMEI is not damaged (starts with 0113) , so would a straight upgrade from 1.1.1 (activated, jailbroken but not unlocked) to 2.0 work?

    Many thanks.

    Hi, please read this before post: [New Members] read here, Title Conformity. Did your thread get deleted? Here's why
    Regarding to your problem, did you try a DFU restore?

    Anyway, as DTube said, "If your phone is 1.1.1 (working normally) and above, you can directly put firmware 2.0 on the phone and use winpwn
    "

    Can the owners with an iPhone with firmware 1.0.2 also use Winpwn 2.0.0.3 ...without upgrading to 1.1.4 first...

    Yes, but you have to virginize it first:

    Default Successful upgrade from 1.02 to 2.0.

    After about 12 hours or so trying to virginize and upgrade my phone I have finally managed to do it.

    Here's what I did. If recall from my first post I had difficulty seeing Installer apps on my iPhone even though it was installed and I had to use WinSCP to SSH and execute the Insstaller from command promp. I assume this does not apply to majority of people but if it does then you may find some of the info in this thread useful.

    So here's a run down of what you need to do if I have 1.0.2 phone and had upgraded it to higher released and now you like to upgrade to 2.0.


    1st section - Virginize the phone, follow the instructions in http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=42046 up to and including step 18.

    some tips in step 12 of the above link:
    - also install OpenSSH
    - if yo get a message to say that it can't see the iphone or something like that, close the app and re-open it again.
    - if problem persist, use the *#307# method to change the autolock to never and try again
    - when it does work and iLiberty+ puts the phone in recovery mode, if the phone does not come back and stays in recovery mode click on the "Jump Out OF Recovery Mode" from the other Tools tab in iLiberty+. You should see a script being run on the phone and the packages installed.

    If you manage to verginize ok then go to 2nd section, else read on the next bit bellow.

    So what if you were unfortunate like me and "The Verginizer" app from Installer would not execute. Well you have to do it like the old days from command terminal. Follow the instructions from this link http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=13072
    Now you may be able to get away with running the commands from the Putty window which you can launch from WinSCP else you need manually execute them from your phone using a Mobile terminal such as VT100.
    - for me the wifi connection dropped when executing iUnlock command and needed to get VT100 running
    - this tip should not apply to most people but if like me you could not see the VT100 icon that I had installed from installer and executing it from command prompt did not launch it. So had to manually get an older version of it, place it in Applications directory and run the su -s Terminal

    Keep a copy of seczone.backup on your PC, I don't know how you get to use it when things go wrong but then you have been advised to take a dump of it for some reason.

    issues I had, when I ran "./bbupdater -f ICE03.14.08_G.fls -e ICE03.14.08_G.eep " it ran to the end but I got the following failed message.

    ProcessDetailUpdated: Sending end-pack.
    ProcessOutlineUpdated: Process time was 2 min 3 sec.
    Error: Failed to download .FLS: Could not verify downloaded image.
    Done

    I tried it several times, even restoring my phone again but it was the same, so eventually I gave up and pressed on with upgrading to version 2.0



    2nd section- Upgrade to version 2.0
    Well the instructions are here, http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1572 if it worked for you first time then fantastic, else read on and see if any of the following steps will work for you.

    First issue - The first issue I had was that I could not create a custom .ipsw package. It will get to about 98% complete but then it would fail. I tried everything, un-installing iTune and winpwn. No joy. I then got a custome firmeware from the net and restored with that and that didn't work either and kept getting 1601 error on iTune (well it should have workred but I wasn't following the exact procedure)

    So here's what you need to do
    1 - Uninstall iTune, QuickTime Safari or anything apple software related that you have. It may not be necessary to remove all apple software but at least you eliminate the likelihood of it going wrong.
    2 - Uninstall previous or current version of winpwn that you have installed
    3 - re boot your pc
    4 - install iTune 7.7, install winpwn 2.0.0.3
    5 - reboot your pc.
    6 - look at the instruction on this youtube video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_9cIT0MZ_8 click on the "more info" on the right hand side to get the links to the firmware. Make sure you read the next few steps bellow before you go ahead and upgrade
    7 - in the video he mentions you must close iTune before pressing iPwner. Make sure you do. I'm repeating it just in case you didn't hear him saying that
    8 - I used to use iLiberty to put phone in DFU mode, although it worked when jailbreaking version 1.1.1 it doesn't really work at this step, it says your phone is in DFU but you will have the iTune and cable log on your screen. Make sure you do it as the guy says in youtube and get a blank screen.
    9 - Don't interrupt the phone when it's done the restore and is in process of jailbreaking it.
    10. One last note, make sure you set your phone as new phone and do not do a restore from back up.

    That's all, let me know if it works or have any issues with it. I haven't tried the new firmware yet, thought I'll post this article for anyone who is struggling like I was. I hope I will not have that issue again whereby I couldn't see my installed apps.
