    Yes, are you changing your iTunes folder to "iTunes Backup" then it will not know.

    Also I've got my phone working on 1.1.4...just not getting service. Trying to downgrade the baseband now....hopefully that will work! I will help you thought it as it is not an easy process.

    So at that point what I did is: used pwnage and got that unlocked that way. But for some reason it didn't downgrade the baseband...so I had to use KipHone to do that, that was quick and now I have an iPhone running 1.1.4 and is working great on T-Mobile!

    1.) Download iTunes 7.7 and do a restore
    2.) Uninstall iTunes 7.7 and reboot your comp
    3.) Install iTunes 7.5
    4.) Put phone in DFU mode based on the steps shown directly above in orange
    5.) Do a restore in iTunes 7.5 by shift clicking the restore button and then directing it to use 1.1.4 firmware which you can independently dl on the internet if you don't have it
    6.) You should get error 1015, click ok, but leave iTunes open
    7.) Open winpwn and pwn the phone
    8.) Use KiPhone and check downgrade baseband and debug boot. Then click start. Let it go through its cycle.
    9.) Go back into iTunes 7.5 and do another restore to 1.1.4 like you did already
    10.) Now you are back where you were with a fully functional 1.1.4 iPhone, for me since I have T-Mobile, at this point I went ahead and unlocked / jailbroke the phone and I was done. You can do this with Ziphone, iLiberty+, or winpwn

    Those are all steps for windows of course.

    I follow your steps. Use the other computer withitunes 7.7 to restore until finished. Then go back to my computer with itunes 7.5 installed. Do the DFU in step 4, open up the itunes 7.5, but immediately, the pop-up said the iphone cannot work has to use itunes 7.7 to work with so and so......... The itunes 7.5 cannot link with the iphone to restore and to diect the 1.1.4 firmware. So, I cannot go further. Anything wrong over here????? Thanks.

    so i upgraded to 7.7
    followed instructions here and went back down to 7.5
    upgraded to 2.0 (in itunes 7.7)
    downgraded to 1.4 (in itunes 7.5 dfu mode)
    i opened independence to kick phone out of recovery and got this message

    The MobileDevice framework private functions are not intialized. You will not be able to jailbreak or SIM unlock your phone. Reinstalling iTunes will likely fix this problem.
    If you've installed the iPhone SDK then you'll need to manually remove /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework and then reinstall iTunes. however, be aware that doing this will cause XCode 3.1 beta to crash when you connect an iPhone while it's running."

    Any advice on this one would be great guys

    Can't mount the image on my mac w/o a password. Does one exist or do I need to decrypt the file to mount it? What is the best way to manage that? Or, is there a decrypted file out there that someone could send me?

    I successfully downgraded my phone back to 1.1.4. A couple problems though. when I erased the baseband and went back in itunes it told me that there was no sim or an unsupported sim in my phone. Im on att. to get around this i just turned off the phone and put it in dfu mode. So eveerything was fine. It restored to 1.1.4. Now after i installed a couple things from installer, after powering my phone off now it comes on but just stays at the apple logo. Ive tried hard resets but no luck.It just stays at the apple logo. I dont know what to do. another thing after the baseband erase it had a message on the phone before i restored it. The message said phone needs repair cant make or receive calls. Please any feedback cause I can no longer install things from installer without my phone being stuck at the apple logo after i turn it off and on. Thank you

    ok I was a 1G upgraded to 2.0 using DEV iPwnage 2.0.1 and my phone would shut off when i sleep mode ALWAYS>..... so here is what i did this morning to get back to 1.1.4

    Using windows, itunes 7.5 DFU restored 1.1.4 factory file. got error 1016 or 1015.

    Re Restored it again to 1.1.4.

    Opened up I liberty forced the phone into RECOVERY MODE.

    closed iLibery

    Switched to my MAC osx 10.5.4---------------------

    opened pwnage 1.1
    and opened teh ispw for 1.1.4 and REPwned my iphone.

    it came back to the emergency call screen.

    I built a custom 1.1.4 using pwnage, Chose Unlock activate bootneuter etc!!!!

    Then opened iTunes 7.7 and did a OPTION restore to the custom 1.1.4.

    It restored fine and all was peachy.

    Bootneuter came up and recognized my 3.9, then said "a already flashed Bootloader is on the phone, so it will ONLY flash the Baseband"

    I was worried but 30Seconds later boom the phone rebooted back into 1.1.4 Unlocked and activated full signal phone works, text, edge, wifi,youtube.
