I have a IP 4 and it is on 4.1 in the 2.14.00 firmware it is currently JB by the previous owner but he said that the IP was JB before. I am assuming it was with 4.0.1 or 4.0.2. I need an unlock to run on TMobile. Is there a way to bring it back to firmware 1.59.00 so that I may re-jailbreak it to 4.1 and keep my unlock with the firmware 1.59.00. Hope this makes sense.

You CANNOT downgrade your baseband. Once you upgrade it, there is no way back down.

Hi all, a noob question. I have an iPhone 4 new out of the box - iOS 4.0.2, baseband 01.59.00-ICE_2_6. It is not yet activated with iTunes and I can't because it's UK Vodafone and I am on O2. Will using PwnageTool with the "activate my phone" option selected and "update baseband " deselected mean that when complete I'll have an activate phone with iOS 4.1 and baseband Hi all, a noob question. I have an iPhone 4 new out of the box - iOS 4.0.2, baseband 01.59.00-ICE_2_6 that I can then unlock with Ultrasn0w? Also what are the potential issues with not activating via apple? And, is there any way of getting my settings and data from my iPhone 3G that is on 4.1 with the latest basband 05.14.02-6.2_M3S2 or have I screwed that by upgrading? Thanks for any help :)

Try using limera1n and then ultrasn0w, or upgrade to 44.1 using thyny umbrela to preserve baseband and then greenpo1son.

There was definitly a problem with facetime, after jailbreaking facetime was gone so i re-jailbroke with pwnage and it still was missing, so i restored using tinyumbrella and jailbroke with limera1n and facetime is back!

I did my JB with Limera1n, but Facetime is gone. I did not test MMS. I was hoping Pwnage would fix it, but I am likely to wait more feedback from users if Facetime is really being fixed. Did anyone tried the video in You Tube where says that reset all setting would do? I do not want to reset everything and do not get a fix. Tnx!!!

I did not re-install the firmware or re-jailbroke. I just did the suggestion I´ve found on a video in YouTube: In Settings/ General, just "Reset All Settings". I have lost some configs, but got my Facetime back. Now that we have Facetime in Macs, I did not want to stay out of it :)

does anyone else have an issue with Facetime after the jailbreak, and by issue i mean that it is not there anymore?

You have to read dev-team blog first!!!... if Cydia is crashing and if you have Leopard you must use PwnageTool 4.1.2!

Did all procedures but cydia does not work, it keeps giving datbase error message "Database could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13 permission denied)". Tried acessing diectory of cydia through mac terminal or total command and no directory shows. Any tips on how to make cydia works?? No repositories or files were installed on cydia. Alrady tried to rinstall and add only open ssh when creating ipsw and rejailbreaking without sucess. Iphone 4 came with 4.1 already installed, firmware 01.59.00

Same thing happened to me. Iphone 4 JB 4.1. After finishing JB i went to cydia and same errors like you. Tried to connect using SSH and I get connection refused, I triple checked and and make sure that I selected install ssh and ssl. Have done it 3 times with no luck.

Worked for me on a iPhone 3G But my final objective is to unlock it, does someone knows if it's already possible? (modem firmware 05.14.12) Another question is, after having done all this, is it possible to downgrade to 3.0.3 in order to get the speed back?

Alright, this didnt work at all! Managed to jailbreak iPhone 4 on iOS 4.1 (previously on iOS 4.0.1). Jailbreak was a success but a lot of problems. 1. No way of turning iPhone off, every time I do, it restarts by itself 2. Facetime is not working, no trace of facetime in settings or in the phone app, it's like I have an iPhone 3g. 3. Battery Percentage doesn't show. Tried restore 3 with custom firmware 3 times, still no luck. I'd like your guys input on this, or if you experience similar problems. If you could try turning off your iPhones and see if the automatically restart like mine? I appreciate dev-teams work, but this just doesn't cut it when nothing works. They tell people to wait for pwnagetool and avoid limera1n and greenp0ison and then release something which just screws my iPhone up. Id very much appreciate your guys responses
