[Help] [SOLVED] Partial Neuter - BootNeuter
Wondering if my phone is completely bricked. Read several threads, and hoping to see if there was something I missed. Any help appreciated.
2G iPhone < 4 months old (got from relative)
Originally ran ZiPhone to install 1.1.4. Was playing with different jailbreak methods and firmwares. Installed several versions until I landed at
WinPwned Version 2.0 IPSW
So finally I was in the last step - unlocking the SIMM
Was in the middle of running BootNeuter when screen lock activated. By the time I realized it, too late. I was installing the firmware so many times, this time I forgot to set the screen lock --> never. I went into bootNeuter immediately after to see if it finished, and instead it tried to detect... instead of getting stuck at "Determining Current Settings", it gives me the "Error: Can't talk to the bootloader... CommCenter collission...etc".
Clearly it was partially through flashing the bootloader and stopped. Now I fear I'm screwed. This is all the fears of the N00b BootNeuter DON'Ts coming true.
So now I tried to reload older firmware versions and iTunes errors out: 1604 / 20 / 4. Always gets stuck in recovery mode.
Interestingly enough - when QuickPwn came out 2 weeks ago, I tried giving it a shot. Granted I loaded a 2.0, but hoped that the 2.0.1 could snap it out of the recovery tailspin. It worked - jailbreaked successfully. I can now boot up, but takes awhile and I have Cydia / Installer / BootNeuter.
Of course no Wifi,Bluetooth,Connectivity and iTunes doesn't detect, always wants to go into recovery mode. BootNeuter is still giving the Error. Now I've tried several different attempts at reloading 1.1.1 / 1.1.4, but the only thing that brings it back is QuickPwn b/c it doesn't use iTunes.
I've read several threads on how to use BBinfo/Sprint/VT100 Terminal/BSD to essential try to reboot the bootloader and kill the CommCenter proc. I've tried using Liberty+, ZiPhone... to load some of the software to diagnose to no avail. Keeps jumping into Recovery mode and the programs error out. I can't even force normal mode.
So the question is - is the phone too bricked to recover? If not, how do I load the diagnostic tools like terminal / BSD to see the extent of the bootloader corruption as the only way I can load anything is through QuickPwn?
I fear I may know the answer - but hey... I was completely dead in the water until QuickPwn came around... I figure their might be some genius solution just around the corner (other than the A17 HW hack).
Thanks ahead of time for any insights / replies
