After I type in the password alpine, I keep getting /var/mobile/Desktop/BBUpdaterExtreme: No sch file or directory Is there a way to fix this ?

Try copying and pasting into the terminal window... if that doesn't happen, use cyberduck to send the file into the specified folder and then set the permissions in the BB app

Im having trouble after entering the command in step 3. after i type in alpine as the password, it says no such file exists. Anyone know what to do?

You could do it using Cyberduck or WinSCP Te only thing the first steps does are to copy the BBUpdaterExtreme to the bin folder and then give a 755 permissions to the program.

Nissy, Did you solve your problem? I also got 6.02 and can not find any proper answer. Thanks

I get as far as the shuting down the services and then this launchctl: Couldn't stat("/System/Libary/LaunchDaemons/"): No such file or directory nothing found to unload iPhone:/bin root# So still can't check the boot loader version Any help please thanks

Sorted now, but not on 5.8, on 6.02
francochelsea - April 21, 2009 at 10:05pm
how did you manage? I still get no such file/directory exists!

I just had my iphone 3g exchanged at an apple store which was yellowsn0wed but the one that they gave me is with bl 6.02. what does this mean for a potential unlock in future?

I get scp ~/Desktop/BBUpdaterExtreme root@ The authenticity of host ' (' can't be established. RSA key fingerprint is 6a:94:1d:ba:eb:2c:d4:1b:8f:f3:43:c6:04:2a:ea:b0. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? Help please
Zero - April 15, 2009 at 9:38pm
Just press Yes. That happens if you are connecting your iPhone for the first time through ssh :) Cheers

THANKS! BTW do you know how to disable that low battery logo on iPhone? The one that shows the red battery with the lighting bolt point to the outlet. Whenever I get that, I drop signal with T-Mobile.
Zero - April 16, 2009 at 1:32pm
Not a clue, but i think the iPhone could be on a power saving function (since you are running out of battery) that cause the signal drop. It has some sense to me :)
Arif - April 16, 2009 at 6:01pm
hmm.. it does make sense when its below 5% but I get that below 30%. I can probably use the phone for an hour+
