    Default Need advice on this Iphone

    Guys, I have been reading on here for a few hours and decided to sign up. I cant seem to find the answer to my issues, and the threads that seem close to my problem are ones I dont understand. Here goes, keep in mind that I have never done this before.

    I have an old iphone, silver backed one. I used for a few years, works great. I changed carriers and put the iphone away for about a year. A few weeks ago, I decided I would start using the old iphone as an ipod.

    Worked like a champ, everything was just like it had always been, all my old pics and everything were on there. I download Itunes again, hook up the phone and it asks me to update to version 3. something. I do it...and this is where my life takes a turn for the worse.

    The phone goes to a "connect to itunes" screen and itunes tells me to register the phone. I dont have or want service through att. So I search a little and download redsnow to see if it will work. Redsnow installs cleanly it seems, and when it goes to boot up, the apple stays on the screen and thats it.

    I'm reading alot about baseband and stuff, but I really dont know what I have done here or how to fix it, so I come to the experts. I do know that I am using redsnow 09.2 and iphone restore 1_3.0_7a341. Whatever that is. I just want the phone to work for an ipod. Any help would be appreciated!

    If you let it update, then it will be running iOS 3.1.*


    So you still need to use redsn0w 0.9.2 but you should have used iPhone1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw instead

    If your data on the iPhone was important... try this:

    Mostly iPhone hacking: Data recovery: not just for iBoot-pwned devices

    Then rejailbreak with redsn0w and iPhone1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw

    Thank you sir. That worked. I wish I had asked here first before spending so much time on trying to figure it out myself! Phone is unlocked and accessible but I did lose all my pics and songs etc... I guess those are gone forever or is there a way to recover them also?

    Most likely they are lost... it is not worth trying to recover them.

    Did you use the method I linked to from msft.guy or did you simply restore and rejailbreak with correct IPSW/redsn0w combination?

    I tried the method you linked to, and it was giving me an error message. After a few times I just did the redsnow and the updated restore you gave me. The pics and things could have been lost before from me trying to install redsnow with the wrong restore I assume. The pics were the most important, but if they are gone then they are gone. I appreciate you taking the time to help out, it is at least working and not a paperweight now.

    Edit: I hooked up to the laptop and connected to Itunes, it automatically reloaded all my pics, old texts, etc... everything except my songs. I have no complaints! lol Thanks again and I will be donating.
