[PwnageTool 2.0] Trouble Virginizing
I need to send phone back that I purchased and I'm trying to virginize it using this info from the FAQ.
After I followed the instructions, the phone shows the cable connection to the iTunes logo, but it still shows T-Mobile when my sim card is in it.
Is this a problem? Can someone use an ATT card?
Can I return it to Apple and they won't know?
When you click the "iPwner" button in PwnageTool, your main s5l8900 bootloader (OS bootloader) gets pwned. To undo this, use iTunes to restore to a Apple ipsw.
When you neuter using BootNeuter, your S-Gold radio bootloader (baseband bootloader) gets "pwned". To undo this, run BootNeuter again and turn off all options (and pick 3.9 or 4.6 depending on your preference).
Two different CPUs, two different tools. But both the s5l8900 pwnage and S-Gold pwnage are 100% reversible.
If you want to relock your phone - use bootneuter and click everything to off. Then restore with Apple firmware. And you are back to factory fresh.
If you restore with Apple firmware you will then have to use ipwner again to use custom firmware.
