try to recover it with the 2.0 official apple firmware. After if it's working you can repwnage it with the 2.0.1 modded firmare.
Iphone 1.0.2 OTB @ 1.1.4
Macbook 2,2ghz - 4Gb Ram - 250Gb HDD
Main issue solved. Thanks Kebspogi.
Now second issue exposed.
I simplified the problem in my first post. After reading the two replies here this morning many times, and afater I started to describe more details here today, my questions turned into answers after some looking on the Web.
The general picture seems to be if you are relocking, downgrading, or unbricking, as Kebspogi says, use DFU not recovery mode.
Whenever I call Apple, they all talk about recovery mode, but when I say DFU mode they shut up. That must be what the "Apple genius" do in the back room when they think it's an Apple problem and not a hack.
It appears that iPhone reset puts configuration data to default, iTunes recovery mode replaces software to default, and DFU mode rewrites firmware to default making everything else work down the foodchain.
So I'm running except for the next problem. It probably needs to go to another thread, but .... This iPhone shows charging when connected or a thin red line on the battery icon. It shuts down immediately when booting into Apple IPSW, after USB connector and arrow and iTunes screen -- connected or not. But it will run indefinitely when Pwned and connected, or in recovery mode and DISconnected.
I plan to do a voltage test on the battery and buy a new one and replace it. But I have seen a lot of posts saying a battery would not charge or showed empty or wouldn't work after doing something with soft/firmware that Apple doesn't want. Anyone here know the issue? I will do some forum and Web browsing later.
BTW with another original unhacked 16GB iPhone that I got which was 3-months old in excellent shape with a battery that died in 24 hours -- Apple sent me out today a replacement phone instead of replacing the battery that costs less than $20 at ifixit.com. It costs Apple lots when not only buyers but even their national service center can't replace batteries.
heres my two cents..thought id register and imput my solution also..
NEVER UPDATE, CHANGE, UPLOAD, BACKUP or do anything to an IPOD while using a USB HUB getting power VIA USB adapter...i got the error 9..
restarted my computer..
reformated it via ghosted windows...
resintalled itunes and nothing..
i even tried differnt ports on USB HUB..
then i tried the computers USB front port and VOILLA..
my 2 cents..hope it helps SOMEBODY
