So if i can\'t save version 4.0 or 4.1 will this still work for me to preserve the baseband if i update to 4.1?? i am only able to save 4.2.1 and 4.3b2 I am running on 4.0 with BB 1.59.00

Download this firmware and install shift restore in dfu mod. When it\'s finished iTunes should throw up error 1004 don\'t panic Now you need to exit recovery mode. Click on ‘Kick device out of recovery mode’ in TinyUmbrella or another program.. This firmware is not a custom firmware it\'s edited from original firmware..Your baseband stay in 01.59.00.. then jailbreak and unlock.. If your iphone4 stay in Apple logo you have to try this.. No facetime error. No network error. No any other errors.. No risk to baseband update.. its simple its like an original http://www.fileserve.com/list/NBTtugZ rar password : tavelli

This didn\'t work for me at all. I got Error 11.
Tolga - October 30, 2010 at 4:31am
It works perfect. Are you sure your iPhone4 in dfu mode and shift restore this firmware. (when you see error kick your device normal mode with Tiny Umbrella.)
mbgriffi - October 30, 2010 at 6:45am
Yup I am sure. To be clear though I am ALREADY on 4.1 with my firmware at 02.10.04.

I\'m one of the few people who got stuck in the middle of restoring process. Actually, the restoring process wasn\'t stuck; it was completed. But, iTunes error message didn\'t pop up. So this is what I did. 1. When the restore bar on phone got stuck half way, I let it sit for about a good 10 min. 2. Then, I hold down Power + Home buttons to do a force shut down. Then, the iphone rebooted into a recovery mode and it automatically recognized in the TU. 3. I kick the phone out of the recovery. The phone rebooted and I got to the activation screen (Emergency call only) 4. I put the ATT sim in and activated with iTune. All is done and I\'m my iPhone 4 is on iso 4.1 with baseband 01.59.00. Good luck to all. I try to make it as detail as possible. If anything unclear, ask in the comment.

The spec: iPhone 4 from 4.0.2 to 4.1 (with only 4.1 shsh saved) TinyUmbrella 4.1.9 Windows Vista 32 bits and iTune 10 (latest one)

Thank you very much. I had the exact same situation. I was a bit scared when the restore process got stuck in the middle. And I did what you described.
mbgriffi - October 17, 2010 at 12:08pm
I ended up getting my baseband upgraded and am now stuck :(
Obskure - October 17, 2010 at 12:59pm
I had exactly the same problem. Left TU running along with iTunes. (won\'t close because it thinks that the iPhone 4 is still restoring) Held the power and home buttons for 10 seconds and the phone reboots to recovery mode. Use Tiny Umbrella to kick out of recovery mode. Phone activated appears on screen and all is well. TU recognizes phone is on 4.1 with 1.59 baseband fw.

sorry to hear that, the only way that could be is if TU wasn\'t running (or running properly). luckily CL is a good haven to sell yours off, and buy another one? :)

i\'m in the same case of you, but when i kick device out of recovery it still reboot to recovery mode

Just got a 2nd hand unit 3Gs with firmware 3.0. Wanted to upgrade to 4.1 but worried it might be operator locked. Can\'t seems to find instruction how to upgrade 3Gs without upgrading the baseband

After step 7 something when wrong. :( I restarted TU and hit Kick out of recover. now my iphone just shows the \"Connect to Itunes\" screen on homescreen. Itunes says : The sim card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported. TU won\'t let me kick out anymore TU says : Device: iPhone4 4.1 (8B117) blah blah Baseband: 01.59.00 - ICE_2_6 What now? HELP!

use limera1n it will jailbreak ur device n activate it n then u can unlock it with ultrasn0w.... try it n let me kno if it work
mbgriffi - October 13, 2010 at 11:34pm
There is nothing to jailbreak, I can\'t even unlock it. Its like the phone is wiped, brand new. The only thing I can do is \"slide to make an emergency call\". :(
mbgriffi - October 15, 2010 at 12:19pm
So I ended up getting a ATT sim card and upgrading to 4.1, which was a mistake because it upgraded my baseband and now I think I am pretty much screwed there is no way to go back.
Hasan - October 28, 2010 at 9:10pm
if your iphone was on the (connect to itunes sign) you were able to jailbreak it with limera1n because that sign means that the iphone is allready restored, you only had to restart your computer and simply put your iphone in dfu mode and limera1n it and unlock it. it happened to me, and that\'s what i did.
Mohammed Ali - January 23, 2011 at 7:12pm
After the step 7 the same thing showed on my iPhone 4 i.e. iTunes logo with an arrow upword n the only thing i can do is make an emergency call..... how do i get to the normal phone home screen and jailbreak n unlock it again using limera1n or whichever.....??? Plz advise thankksss.....!!
Mohammed Ali - January 23, 2011 at 7:34pm
