    I am at #13 and get the message on my phone
    "Repair Needed iPhone could not make or receive call. Apple - Support ".

    On iTunes I get thr message
    " The iPhone "iPhone" cannot be used with iTunes because the SIM card is not installed. You must insert your SIM card into your iPhone in order to activate it.

    Before this situation my was "jailbroken" and active with a phone company other than AT&T. I have a non activated AT&T SIM card that came with the phone. I tried putting it in the phone and still get the same messages.

    TO GET OUT OF DFU MODE HOLD BOTH BUTTONS UNTIL PHONE REBOOTS
    THEN YOU WILL BE IN RECOVERY MODE
    USE ILIBERTY OR ZIPHONE (eww gross) TO REBOOT TO NORMAL MODE

    Great guide, im back on 1.1.4 and couldn't be happier


    A quick note regarding step 12.

    12. Run KiPhone with Debug Boot and iErase options checked. (Leave the box for downgrade UNCHECKED)

    I checked Downgrade and Debug Boot, i left iErase unchecked

    Worked perfectly, im now using 04.02.13_g Modem Firmware on 1.1.4

    I am sorry but i am not a dummy, however i cannot download the 1.1.4 restore file onto a Mac.It comes up as an "unrecognized" file format. It seems to show up on a PC fine.
    Am i missing something?

    Thank you

    you do have itunes 7.5 or higher installed on the mac right?
    only time the file isnt recognized is when itunes isnt installed yet.

    assuming what i have read is true, you can take the 2.0.1 1st gen down to 1.1.4 just like you can 2.0
    take it to 1.1.4 then to 2.0, then custom to 2.0.1

    sounds like you are not using itunes 7.5 when restoring to 1.1.4 or you are not entering DFU mode properly.

    for the last time people, search for "error ####" and you will find the solution. quit asking the same questions over and over again.
