    Default [OTB 1.1.3] Ziphone 2.4 Unlocked, BL downgraded. Need help to send back to Apple

    I restored the Iphone via Itunes, but i'm afraid they'll find out the BL doesn't match their records (4.6!).
    What can I do.

    Ps: The phone would not wake up with incoming calls, therefore it's going back to Apple

    You should be a little bit more explicit. Which options did you use? You used the GUI? or the "Ziohone -x -x -x" instructions???? What is yout bootloader version now? etc...

    You can add a new source from http://www.trejan.com/irepo
    Then instal: baseband info
    Now you can see version of the bootloader.
    Is it still 4.6 or is it 3.9.
    What is the modem firmware?
    I think you don't have to panic, i have seen much worser cases.

    But please give some more info.

    not really, if you can crash it so hard it doesn't come on again, ever, you're safe..
    but are you willing to go that far?

    c'mon seriously ...
    I had my Iphone replaced at the Apple store before ( even a BL downgraded one ), just that I don't want to be blacklisted ( I got this replacement last week).
    So I'm kind of afraid the mail-in way will bite me 'cause of the freakin' BL downgrade.
    You think they'll check?
    The phone will restore and everything, but just won't wake up when on sleep mode

    There is no need to panic. An iphone with BL3.9 can turn perfectly as a fully functional 1.1.3 phone.

    I helped somebody who was in the same situation. I restored to Firmware 1.0.2. to have a clean 1.1.1 OTB phone (as you habe BL 3.9 this should be possible). Then updated to 1.1.2 with jailbreak and ativation. Then i did an update to 1.1.3 and the i ran Ziphone again. Try first with only ziphone -u.

    You also could bring back your phone in recovery mode while connected to iTunes. The press shft+restore, and restore the phone to a clean 1.1.3 (you have to download the ipsw file first). After that Run Ziphone with the -a -j -u options. You should obtain a fully functional 1.1.3 phone with BL3.9
