If you messed up, and updated to 1.1.3 firmware and shouldn't have, all is not lost. The process detailed here is
for those of you that have the version 3.9 bootloader on your iPhone. If you do not know how to determine your
bootloader version then read this flowchart.
You will be able to get your iPhone back to full functionality. Thank you to Michael over at
iPhone Alley for being the guinea pig on this one!
I should mention that Michael did have a legitimately activated AT&T iPhone. I'm unsure whether or not you
(if previously unlocked) would need to run anySIM again as part of this process, as I'm unwilling to update
my iPhone to find out.
For those of you with the version 4.6 bootloader, you can downgrade also, you will just lose phone functionality.
Turn the iPhone on and plug it into iTunes. Put it into DFU mode by holding the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for
10 seconds. The screen will go black. Let go of the Sleep/Wake button. Continue
holding the Home button for another 10 seconds and iTunes will detect that the iPhone is in recovery mode
and display this pop up. Click OK.
Press your Option key (if using OS X) or press your Shift key (if using
Windows) and then click the Restore button in iTunes. In the file
browser that appears, navigate to where you have 1.1.1 firmware on your
computer already. You can download 1.1.1 firmware here.
Note: should this process fail (you'll probably receive error 1015), you can also try restoring to 1.0.2 firmware.
Download 1.0.2 here.
Various messages will appear while the process continues.
When the restore has finished you will get an error message pop up (click OK), and the iPhone will display this
Another pop up will appear. Click OK again.
Eject the iPhone from iTunes and close iTunes.
OS X users
download iNdependence 1.3 Beta 2 here.
download iBrickr here. Windows users you can also run
the original AppTapp Installer.exe
found here to do this.
Launch iNdependence or iBrickr (or AppTapp Installer.exe) to get the
iPhone out of recovery mode. You won't have to click anything, just
wait a minute. You should then see the image below on the iPhone and it
should chirp indicating it is no longer in recovery mode.
Note: Should either program fail, restore to 1.1.1 firmware again (this is a common problem,
especially with iNdependence).
Jailbreak the 1.1.1 firmware. You should be at the activate iPhone screen.
