    Default 3GS NAND error, error 9 or botched software to IMEI unlock

    Hi All,

    Would appreciate any guidance if there is anything I can do with my old iPhone 3GS.
    It was on 05.13.04 firmware, version 4.0.1. It got stuck there from a wrong pwanage/redsnow type upgrade.

    So I bought a reputable IMEI unlock code and thought I was all set to upgrade to unlocked official IOSs. It sat in a drawer for a year and I recently tried to take it to 6.1.4 as per a non locked iPhone.

    All seemed to go well but I'm now stuck at the plug into iTunes restore screen. Every time I try to finish the upgrade I get an error 9 (regardless of recovery or DFU mode).

    I know there is nothing wrong with this machine as I've upgraded other newer non locked phones since. Anything I should look for in the traces that point to the dreaded NAND error as it it kernel panicking? The phone was working fine before the attempted upgrade…

    redsn0w also can't put any old images back on.

    Cheers,

    Take a look at the Restore link in my sig and follow the instructions there to pastebin a copy of your restore log. That should help us identify what the problem is.

    Bad news, I reviewed the log and I'm pretty certain it's a hardware issue with the NAND. You've tried everything else I would recommend. Your best bet is either to replace the entire logic board or take the phone to Apple and have them do a repair. It will be cheaper than buying a replacement and you'll get a new warranty on the replaced piece.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news
