For those of you who feel a little upgrader’s remorse – we’ve figured out a way to get your iPhone back on its feet. The 1st 1/2 of this is sourced from TUAW’s Erica Sadun – who is single handedly turning TUAW from a pompom flailing Apple Fanboy site into a L33T hacker underworld, we have the 1st part here.
This will net you an iPod in iPhone’s clothing – the phone part isn’t working yet. If you are still interested in this part – and we wouldn’t hate you if you weren’t, you’ll need to run a little VooDoo on the iPhone modem’s baseband setting that Apple has molested. Go out the the Internets and find the following files:
Upload them onto your iPhone’s usr/bin using iBricker or iNdependence. (bet you missed those Apps didn’t you?)
Next ssh into your iPhone or run locally from the terminal.app:
chmod +x bbupdater
bbupdater -f *.fls -e *.eep
Your terminal will go Matrix for a few minutes. After all of the Baseband flashing goodness is over, you should be able to successfully run anySIM and after a restart will have a FULLY working 1.0.2 iPhone.
Welcome to the other side of the fork. It is WAY more fun over here.
EDIT: a Polite Commenter says that we got the latest bits of info from a hackintosh member. While he may have come up with this info we obtained it from a different source see post #134 and had it saved from last time around when we unbricked a friend’s phone…
