    Default How to check which bootloader I have (on a mac) ????

    I have read a hundred different posts on how to do this and I am just a rookie at this and nothing makes any sense. If someone could explain how to do this and make some sense of it that would be appreciated. Remember I do not know what all the fancy computer terms mean like ( BIN, SSH, Terminal etc...)

    I think I might have lucked out and got an OOTB 1.1.2 and 3.9 bootloader ( my serial numbers 4th and 5th numbers are 42 and the modem firmware is 04.01.13_G) I just want to make sure before I try to unlock it. I have already downgraded to 1.1.1 and everything works but the phone.

    thanks so much for your help

    If SSH is too difficult for you, I suggest u don't unlock it urself.
    Also, firmware 04.01.13_G means 1.1.1 so im pretty sure u got the 3.9 bootloader.

    I agree with you I should get someone else to do this but I dont have that luxury right now. I guess I should just try to unlock it if 04.01.13_G means I have the 3.9 bootlaoder.

    thanks for the reply

    Okay, if I got what you said, you have ''Installer'' installed in your phone, right ?
    If you do, then try these steps:
    Download this: http://rapid$hare.com/files/75280440/bbupdater.rar.html
    (change $ for s)
    Unzip the file and let it in your desktop.
    On your Phone:
    1-Install BSD Subsystem (System category)
    2-Install OpenSSH (System category)
    3-Go to Settings> Wi-fi > Select your wi-fi network > Click the blue arrow and write down your IP
    Now on your Mac:
    1-Download Fugu (google it)
    2-To ''enter'' your phone (SSH into it) type this configuration in Fugu:
    Your IP
    Port: 22
    Username: root
    password: alpine
    3- Go to /bin and drop the file called ''bbupdater'' (the one you downloaded)
    4- Close Fugu.
    5-Open Terminal (In Applications> Utilities)
    6-Type: ssh root@yourIP (the IP you wrote down)
    7-Enter password: alpine
    8-Type: (each line 1 command)
    launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    bbupdater -v (after this command, you will see your bootloader)
    launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons.com.apple.CommCenter.plist
    9-Finish !

    Oh, I have just tried that, and I realize that I forgot something.
    After typing: ssh root@yourIP it will ask you if you want to continue, you have to type yes.

    Okay, if you want to try again, Ill be happy to help you... just PM me
    and, where are you at ? coz maybe you can bring me your phone and Ill do it for you...

    Remember that to download something in Intaller, your iPhone must be connected to a wi-fi network or EDGE (but since your phone is not unlocked, you dont have EDGE, so you Must have wi-fi connected to your phone)

    Default typo in command line

    Hi, Thanks for the instructions they work great, in the command you give I think you have made a typo though, you said just before the finish
    launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons.com.apple.CommCenter.plist

    but I think it should be
    launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist


    your one gives an error
    Thanks
    James
