    Okey, I'm doing that now. I'm using a 2.0 Custom ipsw that I made with pwnage about 2 days ago. It's preparing to restore now.

    Okey, it didn't get past "Preparing to restore" I got a 1601 error

    Trying to re-pwn it now, so I can use a new custom ipsw file. (I answered "No" to "Are you a legit iPhone user", hope this is correct. Will that help or should I do something else?

    Well i believe pwnage just asks you to go into DFU and restore, since thats how the custom ipsw passes the signature check for the firmware. Then after the restore bootneuter is ran, thus eliminating the need to go into DFU when trying to restore to custom firmware.

    Also have you tried just pressing the home + sleep button until the restore logo comes up and shift + restore to the custom ipsw? Like in regular restore, not DFU?

    I'm pretty sure I've tried that. I just tried it right now, but it doesn't work because right now, if I'm not in DFU mode, itunes just tells me that my sim card is not installed/not valid and cannot be used with itunes. Should I do something first, like restore it to some other version first, before trying this?

    well if you could get to a successful restore of 1.1.4 even ending in a 10xx error, then you can try to make it boot and downgrade the baseband. From there you can retry everything for 2.0

So I followed iDarbert's instructions to use iFuntastic to kick it out of recovery mode. iFuntastic could discover my phone, but when trying to kick it out, it timed out, and said there was an error. No my iPhone still has the USB Cable -> iTunes screen, but it also says "No Sim Card installed, Insert an unlocked and vaid SIM to activate iPhone." When I insert my sim card, and enter my pin code, I can only make emergency phone calls, and the USB -> itunes screen is still there :/
    Oh, but that is normal. It simply means the iPhone is waiting for activation (because a stock Apple firmware was restored)
    You can now run any jailbreak software like iLibery to Jailbreak and Activate immediately or PwnageTool (I don't know if the new one also pwns from 1.1.4 or requires to upgrade to 2.0).

    iTunes will ALWAYS tell you the SIM is not valid because it expects a legit AT&T SIM for the activation legit AT&T (or O2 or Orange) users do, since this is not your case (I assume) you need to jailbreak and "hacktivate", this is where the PwnageTool comes in.

    In other words
    1. Install iTunes 7.7 if needed
    2. Update to 2.0 using iTunes (just click Update without holding anything)
    3. Wait for a (hopefully) successful upgrade
    4. Run PwnageTool and follow the instructions
    5. When asked if your iPhone was already Pwned say No

    Okey, finally I got a break through. I restored it to 1.1.4 using itunes 7.5 on Windows. Then I switched over to my mac, and used iLiberty+ to Jailbreak, Activate and Unlock the phone. Sadly the unlock failed, but the other stuff worked. So after rebooting I finally saw the regular iPhone screen. The only problem is that I have no signal, so the "phone" part doesnt work. Other than that it seems to work fine. Wuptidoo!

    Now I just need to figure out why iLiberty didn't unlock it too. I could have chosen "Unlock with 3.9FB" but I didnt, because I guessed I had the newer file. Should I try unlocking again with this option chosen?

    Here is a screen of iLiberty in action:



    I think you can see there that I have bootloader 4.6? It says bootloader 4.6, but is that because iLiberty+ can see this, or is it because I have told it that that is the case, by not choosing "unlock with 3.9FB"?

    Just forget the unlock and now pwn the phone using the original pwnage tool.

    Then upgrade to 2.0 custom firmware. But remember you need itunes 7.7
    iPhone US 8GB
    FW 1.0.2--> iUnlock--> iPhoneSIMfree--> 1.1.1 --> 1.1.2--> Soft upgrade 1.1.3 --> 1.1.4 using signal.app
    iPhone UK 16GB
    FW 1.1.3 OOB --> 1.1.4 --> iPlus 1.2 unlocked!

    <----If I helped you out, rep points are always nice (thanks for that idea!)

    Okey, sounds great, but I don't want to mess this up again so I'm going to show you what I intend to do, and you can tell me if it is correct:

    First, here is a picture of the info screen on my iPhone:



    Now I'm going to use pwnage 2.01 (Or should I use an older version?) to pwn the iPhone, and then use the custom ipsw that pwnage builds, to restore my iPhone with iTunes 7.7. When asked if my iPhone has been pwned before I will say no. What should I say when asked if I am a legit iPhone owner?

    Anything else I should know about, or am I good to go now?

    download pwnagetool1.0 from the piratebay.org

    dont let it update as its not neccessary.

    Just select the 1.1.4 apple firmware you have and click on ipwner.

    The phone will reboot and become pwned with the yellow pineapple logo.

    Then it will go back to the home screen.

    Now use pwnagetool2.0.1 to create a custom unlocked firmware (click no when its asks if your legit).

    Then simply press "restore" in itunes and select the custom firmware and it will go back to 2.0 and unlock it.
    iPhone US 8GB
    FW 1.0.2--> iUnlock--> iPhoneSIMfree--> 1.1.1 --> 1.1.2--> Soft upgrade 1.1.3 --> 1.1.4 using signal.app
    iPhone UK 16GB

    im not sure if that will work as his phone now has the 2.0 baseband. he can use this Patched Version of ZiPhone on Windows to downgrade his baseband, or use an ipsw created by the new version of pwnage as its bootneuter has the correct files to unlock the 04.05.04_G baseband.
