    Default [Activation] iNdependence - iBrickr fail on 1.0.2

    Hello,
    i have a 1.0.2 hw unlocked iphone and everything was fine until a few days ago the installer stoped working. While refreshing sources it stoped and went back to springboard. After reading what could be the problem i manually changed the plists in the installer unitl the phone stoped working completely and i only had the yellow triangle.
    I restored in itunes (mac os, itunes version 7.6.2 (9) ) which went fine but now i am unable to activate or jailbreak.
    I tried with my mba using independence v1.4 but there i get the message Error writing modified Services.plist to phone. I get lots of hits in google for that error message but not a really working solution.
    When i try iBrickr in Windows the phone goes back into activation screen a few seconds after i switched it to restore mode.
    Any ideas what i can do now?

    thx
    Andy

    Hi,
    i tried that as well, no difference.
    The restore in itunes works well, no error messages.
    But then activation or jailbreaking does not work.
    Are there other possibilities but iBrickr for win and iNdependece for mac to activate?
    Is it possible to access the iphone in this state (Activate Iphone)?

    thx
    andyy

    There are several tools for that... You can try iLiberty (for mac and Windows), PwnageTool 1.1 (for mac), WinPwn (for win), btw I use PwnageTool, zIphone (for mac and win, no many people like this tool, it does the job but it have some issues)

    If you ask me what would I recommend. I would tell you to go with PwnageTool.

    Best regards,

    BTW, I wouldn't mind if you get me a "thumb up" rep

    Hi,
    with all these tools i am not sure that they can be used for a 1.0.2 hw-unlocked phone. I read that you need to virginize before you can use PwnageTool or zIphone. There is no real description about that. All i could find was to virginize it, upgrade and then use one of the tools, nothing about using them on the 1.0.2 directly.
    And on the other hand i would say there is something else wrong with my phone when ibrickr cant do it.
    Is there any way to access the phone in the state it is now? I installed iphuc and it connected to the phone but i could not enter a linux-command. I could check whether there is something wrong with the file system.

    thx alot
    andyy

    Virginizing is a MUST if you used the old version of AnySim on an 1.0.2 iPhone. i am not sure about hardware unlocked - maybe someone could jump in here. Check i.unlock.no. They have an installer driven easy way. After virginizing - if you have to - restore to 1.1.4.

    After this is cleared out, the way to 1.1.4 is free. I am a Pwnage fan forever. The tool is so cool and working like a charm. You could use iLiberty aswell but dont give ZiPhone a try, check all the complains in the forum.

    Best

    aaandyyy, I don't recall that you need to virginize with hw unlock...

    BTW, if I'm not mistaking, ZiPhone can erase your baseband... But you need to have BL 3.9 (I guess that your phone is in BL 3.9)

    Hi,
    that is exactly my problem. I cannot do the virginizing. It all started that i was not able to start the installer program on my iphone (where the virginizer is located). I read something about 300k limit and old servers in the refresh-list of installer as possible problems.
    So i deleted some games and edited the installers plists to get rid of the servers.
    At some point i got the yellow triangle. I did a 1.0.2 restore which worked fine. But since then i cannot activate/jailbreak the phone anymore.
    iNdependence gives me an error message saying it cannot write modified service.plist and iBrickr run into an endless loop, activation screens disapears, alot of lines run through the screen, the grey apple comes up and after some time the activaion screen again.

    @yogs, i read that ziphone can erase the baseband too but i am not sure whether i want that or not. Isnt that the problem to touch the baseband when it was modied before and why we need the virginizer?

    Hi, the biggest problem that ZiPhone has is that in order to unlock 1.1.4 it downgrades the Bootloader (BL) from 4.6 to original 3.9 BL. So, basically the problem is to touch the BL and not the Baseband (BB).
    The BB is the one that gets modified by the unlockers programs.
    Virginize is to erase the BB and write back again. So, if you erase your BB and then put your iPhone in DFU and restore you'll get a brand new untouched BB. And then you can use Pwangetool (I like this tool) to Activate, jailbreack and unlock your iPhone

    Regards,

    BTW, thanks for the rep

    Hi,
    the pwng tool is only for 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 so i did not try it on my 1.0.2.
    And after trying really everything else i gave ziphone a shot and it did do the trick.
    I only used it for jailbreak and activation, as the phone was unlocked already and the unlock for 1.0.2 stays after a restore.
    But now i dont have the installer icon on my screen. (ziphone jailbreak/activation is supposed to install the installer as well but did not do that).
    And trying to install via AppTapp sends the phone back into restore mode.
    So i am back to a working 1.0.2 phone but still not be able to upgrade to 1.1.4 (no installer -> no virginizer program)
    I will continue trying to upgrade the phone but if the 3g comes next month i am going for the new one right away.
    I live in Germany and umts here is much faster than edge is and we dont have a hot spot at every corner.

    thx
    Andyy
