    Question [BootNeuter] Running from command line ?

    Hi,
    can BootNeuter be run with command line parameters?
    If yes, where can I find a reference?

    I would like to have it executed by a script in a ramdisk but was unable to find any info.

    I am trying to revive a dead phone that I ended up with after pwnaging an already ziphone'd unit.

    Phone does not accept restore form iTunes in neither mode (DFU/recovery) but I can Jailbreak with iLibety/iPlus. No jailbreaking app or command in iBooter seems to be able to kick the phone out of recovery.
    iBooter signals a missing file system (HFS+) problem on boot (fsboot) and the phone won't boot nor restore.

    iTunes thinks the phone is in 1.1.3 as per this file ~/Library/iTunes/Device\ Support/**.ipsw/Restore.plist.
    Current baseband according to iBooter (radio getversion) is 04.02.13.

    I thought if I could run BootNeuter and then iErase bbupdate I would be fine.

    Thanks,
    KK

    I don't have the answer to your bootneuter command line question but I don't think you can. All documentation for bootneuter can be found here

    About your iphone problem, I don't understand what you are trying to do. You said you are trying to revive a dead iphone. What do mean by "dead" iphone? and is it dead because you pwned it?

    You should be able to DFU restore 1.1.4 to the phone. Try doing it on a PC to see if you get better luck.

    Your phone is OS is 1.1.3 with a 1.1.2 baseband (04.02.13_G). That tells me you use ziphone to JB+ACT+unlock it before zibri releases the ziphone version that screw around with bootloader. In that case, you should be able to DFU restore to 1.1.4, then use iplus to JB+ACT+unlock

    BTW, what exactly are you trying to accomplish with bootneuter??

    Default thx, partially fixed

    hi dtube,

    The phone was "dead" as in "stuck in rec mode".
    Yes you're right, I Ziphoned it (bad, I know)...

    I partially solved my problem the other day. The phone had been pwned so I ran a custom restore with bootneuter set to reflash my phone to 4.6neut+4.4.5Gunlocked+1.1.4FW
    and it worked on the spot!

    Unfortunately the problem presented itself again when I tried to put FW 2.0 on it the other day. It started and exited with error 6 halfway through the restore process.
    As it was before the transient solution, neither Restore nor DFU work this time too. Don't ask me why.

    iTunes Log says:

    ....

    entering restore_images
    executing /usr/sbin/asr
    Waiting for connection attempt from server
    Validating target...done
    Validating source...
    Can't gather image metadata
    Could not validate source - error -4960

    ....

    Now I am stuck with a phone in recovery mode that thinks it's on a 1.1.3 FW!!!!!
    or at least that's what the following file says:"
    "~/Library/iTunes/Device Support/304218112_Recovery.ipsw/Restore.plist"

    <key>ProductBuildVersion</key>
    <string>4A96</string>
    <key>ProductType</key>
    <string>iPhone1,1</string>
    <key>ProductVersion</key>
    <string>1.1.3</string>

    Wierd, ain't it???

    Would you know what has coused this version confusion in my phone?
    And what server is the phone calling to validate the image? (and why in heaven would I need a server to restore..)

    Thanks,
    KK

    BootNeuter.app can't be run from a ramdisk, as there's no GUI interface when ramdisk is running. Also it would be an extremely bad idea even if a GUI interface were running, because GUI apps would eat into your ramdisk in no time at all and everything would fall apart. That's not the kind of environment you want to be flashing your bootloader in.

    ...and its the same disintegrating ramdisk environment that ZiPhone does bootloader downgrades in
