I had an unlocked, activated iPhone (originally and unlocked = 1.1.1 and 04.01.13G), but something wasnt right. I could make calls with local SIM, Safari was fine. However, everything would load very slowly (ex. if I loaded an app, it would take 1 min.. if I try to press home after, it would take 1 min to get back to springboard). Camera wasnt working also.
Anyways, I decided to start from scratch and restore. I read you need to revirginize after you've unlocked before. But as per the i.unlock.no methods, you either need:
A: a 04.01.14G modem with the bad IMEI 0049xxx and run Virginizer 4xx
B: a 03.14.08G modem and run the Virginizer
UNFORTUNATELY, I have IMEI 0113xxx (in Settings>General>About which matches the back of the iphone). What I do?
1) run the latest Virginizer while in 1.1.1 and still in original IMEI 0113xxx
2) run the latest Virginizer restored to 1.0.2 with 04.01.14G modem anyways
(can i even downgrade baseband to 03.14.08G when it was never an update from 1.0.2? i had a 1.1.1/04.01.14G to begin with)
3) dont bother revirginizing, restore and go for it!
please help! :(
you don't need to virginize or do anything fancy.
Your IMEI matches your phone so your phone is very very healthy.
Just restore the phone using 1.1.1 -
After that, your phone will be JAILED and unactivated.
You just need to jailbreak and activated it.
(use CARNAVAL 0.8 or http://jailbreakme.com - i prefer CARNAVAL 0.8)
NO NEED to run anySIM at all because your baseband is already unlocked
edit: helped someone that want to do the same thing . Read here:
