    Default [iTunes] Can't restore to any SW version

    Hello,

    i am new to this forum but know quite alot about iphones.


    i am trying to restore my iphone to 1.1.1 firmware, when i do the shift + restore in itunes it says the following steps:

    Extracting software
    Preparing iphone for restore ( iphone reboots then i get apple logo and spinning circle)
    Waiting for iphone...


    Then it hangs at waiting for iphone.

    phone was 1.1.1 otb and just followed instructions on iclarified for 1.1.2 update then ran the jailbreak.jar application and this ever since,


    also have tried restore locks and everything with ziphone


    Thanks in advance for your help

    Hello,


    I think i need to manually virginize my phone via it being connected to the pc.

    it has 1.1.2 on it at the moment and is stuck in recovery.

    it does get recognized by itunes, ziphone, iliberty etc.

    Have you tried restoring in DFU mode to 1.1.4?
    To do this, reboot your iPhone pressing the home button, you
    won't see anything on the screen, but iTunes will detect it as an
    iPhone in Recovery mode, just restore to 1.1.4 and then use
    any of the unlocking apps.

    @ ultimatehack (2nd post)

    You don't need to virginize if you are upgrading from 1.1.1 to 1.1.4, includes .2 and .3.
    Just virginize if you had the 03.xx.xx baseband unlocked by the old anysim, and
    if you're planning to return to 1.1.1

    what to do?

    Do you try to alt-restore to 1.1.4?
    Did you download 1.1.4 firmware from the Apple source mentioned here
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=22056
    Do you have the latest version of iTunes for Mac installed -> 7.6.2 (9)?

    Ah, I see. You are using Safari. Goto Settings in Safari. Tab "General". You will see a checkbox saying something "Always expand secure Downloads" or so (I am on a differnet language System right now). UNCHECK this box. Download 1.1.4 firmware again and do the DFU restore in iTunes to that .zip ending file. Will propbaly work then.
