    Hey guys, I'm lost on what to do next.....

    I've tried every method I can find out there among the thousands of posts and dozens of walk-throughs but nothing seems to work and I believe I'm not alone.

    Here's my situation:
    - Bought a v1.1.1 phone
    - successfully jailbreak'd it and anysim'd it using the iphone.unlock.no method. was working fine for several days
    - installed some app which caused me to get the invalid SIM error
    - tried several recovery methods but finally realized that downgrading phone and baseband to try and recover was my only option
    - successfully downgraded to v1.0.2 and baseband 3.14.08.
    - successfully jailbroke again with ibrickr/AppTappInstaller/etc

    However, my problem remains:
    - bad IMEI 04999xx
    - no wifi
    - no bluetooth
    - invalid SIM error

    I've tried:
    and others....

    I've tried with my AT&T SIM in, my desired SIM in, no SIM....all combinations thereof....no luck.

    At this point, I have no more options to try unless someone can lead me to another path or point out something I may have missed.

    hi, i'm pretty much in the same situation as monkeyking, so are many others i have read about. please if someone know a solution share it.

    we're getting desperate.

    does all this work with mac OS X is is this a Windows fix? Also can this be done successfully with a restored v1.0.2 iphone that was unlocked - accidently upgraded to v1.1.1 - now restored to v1.0.2 with baseband still v1.1.1?

    Please say yes it does and but me on the track to a working iphone that makes phone calls!?

    Thanks in advance

    still no resolution to the bad IMEI/no wifi/no bt issue....but here's a question:

    Looking inside the secpack version I'm using during my downgrade from v1.1.1 to v1.0.2, I see the text 'DEV_ICE_MODEM_04.01.13_G'

    Is this correct? should I be using this secpack when downgrading to baseband 3.14.08? I'm thinking not...perhaps this is the problem.

    Can anyone verify? and if so, where can I get a different (lower) secpack?

    Hey Raven, tried your process, but I keep getting stuck at step 11. Ieraser seems to go through but stops midway. I get a reading stating: "Hopefully the main flash was erased. wait for the next step..." Been stuck at this point even after redoing the whole process. Wifi was knocked out by Anysim and bricked, so cannot ssh into the phone at all. Any help appreciated as always. Thanks

    I had a 1.1.1 brick iphone with no Wifi, no bluetooth, can´t make or receive calls, no sounds... nice Well, I followed the ReVan tutorial to the end, but I realiced that the IMEI was corrupt (0049) so I go back to 1.0.2, downgrade the baseband to v3 go trough step 2.5 to unlock , but after 5 tries with differents SIM cards, no success, the same Invalid SIM Card meesage. Well, I´m out of ideas now... just can´t get the IMEI right, fkin 0049 IMEI.

    Please somebody, i'm still getting a bad IMEI, I looked everywhere and nothing. I read in another forum that said that we may have a corrupted NVRAM or a corrupted seczone. they said something about waiting for elite team to make a seczone rebuilder to make our IMEI come back. it's this true?

    # ./bbupdater -v
    Resetting target...
    pinging the baseband...
    issuing +xgendata...
    firmware: DEV_ICE_MODEM_04.02.13_G
    eep version: EEP_VERSION:207
    eep revision: EEP_REVISION:7
    bootloader: BOOTLOADER_VERSION:3.9_M3S2
    # OK
    DEV_ICE_MODEM_04.02 instead of 04.01...

    Im in the same boat, any help would be appreciated. After following every tutorial within this board, they all bring me to a point where the ./bbupdater -v command should result in a "baseband unresponsive to pinging" but in my case and many others from what I can see, is the results of the above..

    # ./bbupdater -v
    Resetting target...
    pinging the baseband...
    issuing +xgendata...
    firmware: DEV_ICE_MODEM_04.02.13_G
    eep version: EEP_VERSION:207
    eep revision: EEP_REVISION:7
    bootloader: BOOTLOADER_VERSION:3.9_M3S2
    # OK
    End result when I try in write new .fls it fails to download.

    Any help?

    Thanks guys, you saved my life (and my iPhone too)!!

    I had a major problem (1.0.2 unlocked, upgraded to 1.1.1 and after it has been anySimmed..what a mess!!)

    I browsed for hours trying to find a solution, and this was the only one that worked.

    The only problem is that the link to wiNstaller is not working (file is not there anymore) but at the end I didn't have to change the IMEI so for me was not much of a problem.


    Thanks again!!

    I have a 1.1.1 downgraded to 1.0.2, then activated with PACAY and unlocked with anySIM 1.1 -- can I just proceed from step 2 onwards? Also, I don't have Wi-Fi but I can also change files on iPhone Browser on the Phone, is that enough?

    since then have no wifi... tried going to 1.0.2 and everything in between...

    Started this process and it did everything it said it would without a problem.... but didnt get my wifi back, so couldnt complete process... ..

    .. have wifi button (not greyed out like others i have read),
    IMEI is fine with all other numbers.. just cant find any network... I have other Iphone here can find all networks along with my laptop... so thats not problem...
    Thanks for all the great information to all ..and any information about this would be greatly appreciated..
