[1.1.3] Upgrading to Custom 1.1.4
Couple of quick questions about the process.
I am currently running a week 33 US iPhone with BootLoader 3.9 that has been upgraded to the Dev Teams 1.1.3 firmware and also upgraded using iClarified tutorial to baseband version 04.03.13_G. Finally it was unlocked using the leaked AnySIM 1.3.
Can some one double check my upgrade process please: -
Restore iPhone to 1.1.4 via iTunes.
Enter Recovery mode and use iPwner.
Create Custom Firmware 1.1.4 using the PWNAGE tool
Restore in iTunes to the Custom 1.1.4 Firmware.
Once complete the iPhone will be unlocked on 1.1.4, correct?
Ok so some quick questions –
1. Will this process change my BootLoader or can I leave it as I am running v3.9?
2 . What options do I check when creating my custom firmware?
I assume I need to select: -
Enable Baseband Update (To allow for the unlock).
Do I need to select “Neuter BootLoader” and/or any of the child options?
The other options are straight forward.
Steps you described looks ok.
The pwned process does not do anything to your Baseband bootloader (3.9), it only touches your OS bootloader.
When you run the bootneuter app, that's is where you can change bootloader and perform unlocking baseband.
Whether you want to neuter your BB BL is up to you.
In your case, if you are uncomfortable with the whole process, you could simply DFU restore to 1.1.4 and use iplus/iliberty for JB+ACT+unlock
Thanks for the information.
I was quite involved in the scene back in the 1.0.2 to the 1.1.1 days however lost track a bit after 1.1.3 therefore just trying to re-build my knowledge.
So to just get to 1.1.4 which is activated, jailbroken & unlocked do I need to select "Neuter BootLoader"? What benfits does it have?
Also if someone could explain what the Neuter BootLoader actually does or point me in the direction of a good guide that would be great?
I think i too am on Basband 3.9, which I think is the original, i am also on F/W 1.0 on a 4GB Iphone. 2 weeks after it was released from US. I have the phone jailbreaked using a turbosim, all this was done back August 07, so its been a long time since I followed this site.
I am looking to Pwnage the phone with 1.1.4, I have been told to verginize the phone, do i do this by just connecting to Iphone, and making the phone 1.1.4, then PWN it. do I not need to worry about my baseband, and bootloader updating with itunes.
I am on 03.12.06G.
your help would be appreciated.
Thanks for the information thats a great link.

Based on this new information I believe I would want to select the Neuter BootLoader. However which child option (3.9/4.6) do I select or can I not select either?
Montgomerie Burns - I can confirm 99% for you that you are on BootLoader 3.9 as you have an early version of the US iPhone.
I would complete a full restore to 1.1.4. That's a restore not an upgrade via iTunes. You then should be fine to use the Pwnage Tool. The only thing I can not confirm is that the Pwnage Tool supports 4GB iPhone although I can not think of a reason why it would not. Let me know how you get on as we are in similar positions.
Ok thanks, sorry for my ignorance, but what's the best way to restore it, then I will get cracking.
put the phone in dfu mode and restore to the firmware by using iTunes
As the first stage to use the Pwnage Tool is to get to the latest official Apple Firmware you should be able to simply update via iTunes. It is suggested that if you have jailbroken and have custom applications installed that instead of just hitting the upgrade button you select restore instead. This will clear your iPhone back to default settings which is what you want.

Then select "restore" while holding either Ctrl or Option depending on if your using Windows or OS X. This will bring up a box that allows you to select the firmware from your local machine. Then simply wait for it to restore.
The process can take quite a while and at times it looks like its doing nothing but don't worry it will get there.
Then you should be ready to use the Pwnage Tool as you have a virgin iPhone with the latest firmware installed.
law why dfu mode? Is that actually needed or just a safety precaution?
