ootb 1.1.2 restore/downgrade - 1.1.1 - jailbreak failing -SOLVED
I have a 1.1.1 version iphone which I have successfully unlocked and upgraded to 1.1.2 thanks to reading up on the forums which I use daily. So thanks to all of you for the guides and now there are even easier guides to use then I had available from before.
Now the problem I am having is with a new iphone I bought yesterday. It is a firmware version 1.1.2 week 46 and I know that I cannot unlock/anysim this version (yet). I wanted to at least jailbreak it and use it as an ipod touch which is as far as I can read... is possible.
Please remember I have already done this once before and don't need any flaming but would like some good inputs as to what maybe happening here.
I force the iphone into DFU mode and use itunes 7.4.3 to restore the phone to 1.1.1 by holding shift+clicking restore button (I am a PC user obviously by this method). I direct itunes to the 1.1.1 restore file (same one I used for my last phone) itunes then does it's thing for a few minutes and I get the expected error 1015 and I close the next 2 windows (error screen and restore you iphone screen) hitting ok and then closing itunes. My phone is now locked and asking for itunes on the main screen by way of the connector and itunes symbols pictured.
I have used both ibrickr and iphuc to reboot my iphone out of this locked mode. (now I have tried to goto my task manager and have also "ended" ituneshelper.exe but I don't think this has helped anything) I do this and it goes back to the springboard and asks for itunes to register and or slide for emergency call (great just as expected).
I do the usual procedure to get the phone to hookup to my network via "prefs" and add in "jailbreakme" to an additional url. ( I have also set the iphone in general - autolock to "never")
Back to the begining and I work my way back to my contacts and use safari to goto "jailbreakme" I scroll down and try to install AppSnapp where then safari closes and the iphone goes back to the springboard (opening screen for emergency calls) and I wait.... and wait.... and wait.... way too long as my iphone now does not reset itself and reboot into a jailbreak mode.
I believe I am downgrading to version 1.1.1 but when I *3001#12345#* and goto versions it still reads 04.02.13 for the firmware.
So is it downgrading or has apple blocked the downgrade option for my new iphone so I cannot jailbreak it (which means this is a very light but expensive brick till there is something new that comes out). Please let me know if I am missing anything.
thanks in advance for all your input guys
