Discuss Revirginize Question at the iPhone "2G" (Rev. 1) - Hackint0sh.org; Hi everyone,
I had an unlocked, activated iPhone (originally and unlocked = 1.1.1 and 04.01.13G), ...
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!
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:
